    Default Breaks are Back!!!

    I have played all kind of breaks for 10 years. Bur there has never been a huge demand for them.

    Thankfully i was able to transition from being more of a commercial dj at your typical fancy club...to a full on underground dj within the past year. Got signed to an underground label here in Atlanta.

    Well, our label throws a big rave once a month at this huge warehouse they rent. At underground events I have always played house and tech-house. But last night i played 2 hours of breaks and the crowd went mental!

    Every track i pulled they just went crazy for! Played a few ultra rare Goldie breaks vinyls.

    This track went over well.

    This track especially...its got that crazy Florida booty thing goin on.




    I hope breakbeats will start getting more mainstream again, because they are just so damm awesome.

    Always thought Atlanta had a penchant for breaks. But congrats, wish I could get to ATL more often!

    I've been playing breaks out since I started Breaks aren't going anywhere - people just don't make the connection half the time that what they are listening to ARE breaks. Breaks for life man I sometimes play other things too, Drum and Bass, Hardstyle, House (in various forms) but my mainstay has always been breaks. There's definitely a demand for it around - it just takes solid promoters to book it!

    I'm a huge fan of breaks, but like the OP, I haven't really found too many places to play it.

    It's always successful when I can get away with it, though. Love the higher intensity nu skool stuff....

    Indeed, half of my audience thinks it's house, the other half think it's drum & bass xD
    Luckily the guy who books me lets me play whatever the heck I want, as long as people enjoy themselves.
