Welcome to the new home of Free Breaks Blog!
In our three year existence we have gone from a passionate “fan site”, to being internationally recognised as the leading blog for all things breakbeat related and nominated in the worldwide, 2013 Breakspoll awards for best website. We have run exclusive features and competitions from the best artists in the scene including Stanton Warriors, Krafty Kuts, Sub Slayers, Aquasky, ILS, Fort Knox Five, Mafia Kiss, D-Funk, Hexadecimal, Unstable Label, Ground Level Records, REL1, Toronto Is Broken, Jinx In Dub and many more whilst always supporting the up and coming artists and “bedroom producers”. We aim to be the number one site for all things breaks, beats, glitch, funk and bass related.
As you can see we have a wicked new design and layout with loads more features. We now have specific categories for genre types, making it loads easier to navigate your way around the site. Just hover your mouse over the “Music” tab in the menu and choose your selection. Where the old site was mainly about tracks we will now be featuring DJ mixes, radio shows, live sets etc which you can find in the “Mixes” category. Under the “Samples” tab you will find remix kits, remix comps and sample packs past and present. Our first weekly Review section will be live this Thursday but for the meantime you can check out the latest reviews of the new Fort Knox Five album and Breakbeat Paradise compilation. We will still be hosting loads of exclusive competitions for you to win prizes, check out our most recent comp to win some huge Aquasky goodies. Don’t forget to check out the new “Store” page for some fresh T-shirts, Hoodies and other merchandise emblazoned with our logo.
All the things you loved about the old site will still be present with the Nufunk Round Up taking place every Sunday and we will still be bringing you the freshest free breaks, ghetto funk, glitch and bass tracks. The new site also features four new writers with Dastardly Kuts and B-Roll taking care of the funkier beats, DJR providing a fine selection of electro swing and Steve Clotho covering the future jungle sounds.
We have installed the Disquss comments plugin which gives you real time notifications on comments so you can get opinions, speak to the artists or just generally have a chat. Please give it a go and build up our community here at the blog. We want to know your thoughts!
