Fat! Breaks Vol 1

Fat! Breaks Vol 1

Fat! Breaks Vol 1 mixed by Atomic Hooligan & Jay Cunning shines a light on the innovative Breaks music scene of the early to mid-00s on the Fat! imprint. You will hear tracks from artists like Tayo, Peacemaker, The Apolo Kid and more and marvel at how fresh they sound.

Despite owning some of the early Distinctive Breaks compilation/mix albums, the material on Fat! Breaks Vol 1 is a whole new experience to this writer. Tracks like Merka’s ‘Mystic Man Retro Re-rub’ and Gella’s ‘Chi Kaa Chi Koo Gunfire Dub’ have a uniqueness that seems unparalleled in terms of experimentation, a place where the post modern ideas reign but never spoil the dance.

Tracks like Baobinga I.D. ‘Jewelz’ are pure unbridled fire and stand the test of time so well they will smash it in pretty much any, club, festival or rave setting. This compilation features 15 true gems from a defining era. When you hear the likes of Tayo meets Acid Rockers Downtown ‘Rockers Delight’, it’s like hearing the roots of so much of today’s Bass music. Get a piece of timeless history, get to know some truly amazing tracks that will turn the ears of breaks fans and fans of many other genres.

Black Tantra ‘Big Trouble’ on the We Jack imprint is a delightful number with summery pianos and husky vocals. Tough Love have a suitably tough number out with big whomps and twisted vocals called ‘Friday Night’. Rhythm Staircase ‘Let’s Go Dancing’ out on motion has a mid 90’s Tribal House thing going on with a hypnotic thud, Garage style beats and hypnotic horns.

When Skapes is in the joint you know the ‘Music’s Pumpin’ and it most certainly is on this nice thumping roller. And to get the warehouse party heaving is Glen Coombs on the excellent Criminal Hype imprint with the essential ‘Warehouse Jams EP’ featuring remixes from Leon & Vibe Killers.

You can thank the talented duo of Monks & Mort for the rushin’ ‘ardcore of ‘Don’t You Want’, it’s massive!

Another incredibly talented artist, one we have tons of love for is Motivbreaks. He has a new EP out on VIM containing two lush tracks that combine 92 Rave, Breaks, House & Garage all in his signature haunting yet euphoric style.

On the mellow mid-tempo bass tip is Eliphante whose ‘Catching On’ gives Major Lazer a serious run for the money when it comes to downright catchy sounds. The Art aud imprint has the second of it’s ‘Secret Rave EPs’ out featuring oldskool hardcore style tracks by Anybody Anytime,  G-23 + RivetMylerTextasy who clearly loves the classic video game ‘Streets Of Rage’
