Breakin Bread Mix Vol 1

Breakin Bread

Released: 1st November 2010 | 15 track alternative rap/hip-hop album
A mix CD of Breakin Bread releases from the last 12 years, cut and blended by those titans of the mix CD game Para and Baila. Their selection of the best Breakin Bread tunes. From the early releases by Rob Life, Quantic and Color Climax to UK hip hop classics from Ghost and Tom Caruana to new school soul, funk and beat hybrids from Para, Natural Self and others. Breakin Bread has been going for over 12 years. They started off promoting nights in a dodgy pub in Brixton, South London and The Breakin Bread crew went on to become a major part of hip hop and funk clubland. The monthly parties always attracted a massive crowd and they still do but the crew can't handle the pace of doing monthly nights anymore (watch out for the 12th birthday celebrations being put together for November). They started putting out records from the resident DJ's Rob Life, Tufkut (Beats in Progress) and Paul T (Color Climax) and when these quickly sold out they realised there was a massive demand for music rooted in hip hop but imbued in the soul/funk revival of the late 90's. A common misconception is that Breakin Bread only releases music for breakdancers. The club nights always have b-boy battles going off but the label has never been restricted to b-boy beats, The Crew simply wanted to release top notch soul, funk, beats and hip hop. Over 50 releases later here we are with the first retrospective mix from the label. Para and Baila are fast becoming renowned as the kings of the modern underground mix CD scene. Mix CD's with tasty artwork are always going to beat MP3's or burnt CDs. You won't get rich from them anymore but you might gain more than a smidgeon of street and club cred. Para and Baila certainly did that with their first mix The Saxton Collection from 2006 which received great reviews in this country and across the pond and even earned the tag of mix of the year in some media. This was followed by Feats per Minute feat DJ Yoda, another cut and paste style mix that fuses snippets of records from many musical genres in an innovative and original style. Most recently Para released Smack My Pitch Up in 2009. Each of these releases were limited to 1000 copies and quickly sold out. The Breakin Bread Vol 1 Mix takes in Para and Baila's selection from the full back catalogue. The first half of the mix focuses on Breakin Bread's uptempo tracks aimed straight at the dancefloor. The second half of the mix slows it right down taking in more hip hop and more of the B-sides and introspective pieces from the label's roster. This mix will please Breakin Bread's loyal following but its also made for everyone with an interest in soul, funk, beats and hip hop and indeed UK music in general. How many collectives have been putting on nights and putting out new original music for 12 years? In the world of UK soul, funk and hip hop nobody does it like Breakin Bread.
