Breakin Bread

Released: 3rd October 2011 | 2 track latin rap/hip-hop single

Breakin Bread continue on their tropical journey, following up the Latin flavours of Chris Read - Disco Cumbia with a second single from the London based producer. This time round we swap continents and take in some Afro Beat influence with two dancefloor friendly afro workouts. Chris, a collector of hip hop, funk, soul boogie and related beats and jazz based music since the late eighties first came to prominence as a club DJ through his 10 year role as resident DJ and promoter at Substance (one of the UK's largest and longest running hip hop and funk nights) and a 2 year spell as mix DJ on BBC Radio 1Xtra. In recent years a steady output of high profile mix albums has allowed Chris to DJ around the globe. Chris has also played a few times at Breakin Bread parties so he knows the vibe and is a perfect addition to the Breakin Bread roster. In the past year Chris has joined the ranks of the BBE label putting together mixed compilations for the both the label's 15th Anniversary and the 10th Anniversary of their acclaimed Beat Generation series. Chris is also hard at work in the studio producing a new album for BBC New Urban Music Award winning band Maylight, a seven piece outfit fusing jazz, soul and electronics featuring the vocal talents of Tru Thoughts Lizzy Parks.
