OTBP Vol. 011 "Break Into The Past"

March 9th, 2011 No comments

This is a very special edition of OTBP.  It is not for the faint of heart nor those looking for some smooth house grooves or laid back lounge music.  This episode I focus on that which we call "Breaks, Breakbeat, Funky Breaks, etc."  The majority of these tracks were released between 1989-1995.  These were the tunes driving the underground rave scene across the United States and Britain.  You would hear DJs such as DJ Dan, Scott Henry, John Debo, DJ Icee, & DJ Spun rocking these tunes.  In roughly an hour and half, I've run through 30+ of the tracks that were prevalent during this era.  Because of this, I don't really think I can highlight the big tracks since all of these were pretty much hits in the scene.  So again, if you are ready to take a trip in the "Way Back Machine", download, sit back relax, press play, and enjoy.  If breakbeat ain't your thing, then it's best that you wait for the next edition of OTBP...but why not take a chance and expand your horizons??!!

Johnson Lee :: Free Form 14

March 9th, 2011 No comments

It's time for another Free Form jewel.  Edition 14 brings Johnson's infamous house sound back to the fray but intermixed with jazz, drum and bass, lounge, and funky breaks, too.  While it's only 48 minutes long, he gives you a glimpse into one of his authentic 4 hour live sets.  It's another keeper indeed.

Avery :: Juegos Que Jugamos

September 14th, 2010 No comments

This is a throwback mix to the early 90s Funky Breaks that was spreading around the nation from people like DJ Icee aka Icey, DJ Dan, Scott Henry, etc.  There's plenty of classic tracks.  I recorded it in 2003 but most of the tracks are from 1991-1995.  One of my favorites has to be DJ Mink "Can You Relate".  It was actually a fast hip-hop track but most DJs played the instrumental.  The Bassbin Twins were quite a staple at the time, too.  You couldn't go out to a party without hearing one of their tracks.  A funny side note is that the "Twins" are actually just one person - Peter Houser.  Another interesting fact, is that the Song to the Siren was by Dust Brothers before they were forced to change their name to the Chemical Brothers due to copyright issues with another set of Dust Brothers who helped produce Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique album.
