Specimen A return with a vengeance this year to dump yet another infectious
load of corrosive beats & toxic bass all over your soft, modern,
green-friendly, compost-bass-bin loving selves. You'll find no recycling
here, Spec A make only 100% original & indestructible beats. The new age is
over prepare for the second dark age!

It was only a matter of time before the credit crunch caught up with us so
in homage to the buzz word of the year and first up on the release comes
'Hard Times' a 130bpm tough-like-2009 breakbeat behemoth. It opens with an
electric storm quietly drawing in over the intro before the full on thunder
of dark basslines, electronic wobbles & raw beats is unleashed at the drop.
The storm clouds swell unleashing epic hands in the air synths in the chorus
until the whirlwind breakdown clears away the dead bodies with hoover basses
& half time triplets preparing the dancefloor for the second half
devastation to come.

Flip for 'Exodus RIP' a reworking of their 2007 track 'Exodus' into a much
more ferocious beast. This is ipod fodder for 22nd century marines on the
front lines. The dystopian horror theme remains but with sacks full of
energy & changes aplenty. The intro & first bassline riff echo the original
track until the terror suddenly shifts up a gear with an onslaught of
horror-synth stabs & chilling screams before breaking out into a rock fest
of wailing guitars, tight drum fills, chugging riffs & machine gun fire. It
wouldn't be Specimen A without some proper melody thrown in the mix so true
to form there's a soothing half time acoustic ballad providing a brief
respite from the assault until the second wave. RIP indeed!

Against The Grain Records Presents:

Deekline & Wizard ALbum
Released 13
th April 2009

Against The Grain Records, the label behind the Freestylers and Krafty Kuts, are proud to present thebootylicous new album “Back Up, Coming Through” by Deekline & Wizard. With a joint résumé littered with top ten hits, high profile production and studio work (for Xpress 2, Chemical Brothers, DJ Fresh, M.I.A, LadySoveriegn and more), acclaimed remixes for the likes of Armand Van Helden and the Prodigy and a debut album smash in the form of ‘Breaks, Beats & Blondes’, there is no questioning Deekline & Wizard’s pedigree.

“Unparalleled speaker-smashing, arse-wiggling perfection, that sets them apart from

almost any other underground act”. DJ Magazine - Album Of The Month *****

Deekline & Wizard have always been ambassadors for a strong vocal and the album is loaded with new and undiscovered talent amassed on their travels. From reggae inspired, jungle institution TopCat to UK hip hop exileFallacy; from gospel star and former Drifters member Vic Bynoe to genre jumping Canadian MC Flipside (who has spent the last decade adding his stamp to international chart toppers) and regular collaborator Yolanda,whose soulful turns on tracks including

‘Ready For Your Love’ truly showcase a new direction for the previous booty bounce specialists.A trip to the Americas threw up Detroit’s ghetto tech pioneer DJ Assault who adds his baritone twang to theminimalistic, A-Town sound of ‘One In The Front’ and ‘Keep It Pushing’, two cuts that perhaps best showcase the increased musicality their new productions offer. These musical kleptomaniacs also set off with their swag bagtravelling to Sofia in Bulgaria, where they found classically trained musician Andronia Popova. Singer and string arranger extraordinaire Andronia, was exactly what the boys were looking for and her live strings provide a depth of listening on singles ‘Angels’ and ‘Dancehall Thrilla’. In addition the latter track brought the boys fullcircle and back to London where they hooked up with achingly cool Hadouken founder and singer James

Smith, whose vocals provide the perfect antidote to the ragga stylings of MC Navigator. There’s never beenany doubt that the Deekline & Wizard pairing can produce consistently exciting club smashes, but on

‘Back Up, Coming Through’ the pair have produced hook heavy joints set to take them to kitchen radios and car stereos around the country.

transverse 013

 

Transverse is back again with Spanish breakers Xim N Bass. A duo that has been tearing up the floors of countless Spanish shows for the last few years. This release is just a taste of what you would hear at one of those events: a raw and nasty audio experience consisting of crunchy breaks and heavy bass. Support from: Jay Cunning, Specimen A, Takomo, Stormtrooperz, ViperX, Mars, MKM & GBX, and many others..

On "Die", XNB teams up with VIPERX. The 3 of them combined their skills to unleash a tune that  has a distinct drum and bass meets breaks sound. A shuffled / groovy beat complemented with dark distorted bass that will grab anyone's attention immediately. The track following that is Prophets, another spooky tune littered with god-like vocal samples . The beat however, has more of an electro influence with grimey saw tooth bass.

“Back Up (Love For The Music)”

 

Deekline & wizard

All eyes and ears are on red hot production duo Deekline & Wizard with the release of their latest single ‘Back Up (Love For The Music)’ - the last single before they drop their bootylicous new album ‘Back Up, Coming Through’ in April.

Back Up (Love For The Music)’ blends a plethora of underground sounds with powering vocals from Yolanda (Bugz In the Attic) to form a sound that is unique and quintessentially British.

Managing to balance underground credibility with chart-topping capability “Back Up” sees the boys “set to cement their position as the premier dance-floor duo that they most definitely are” – DJ Mag.

Not content with the radio friendly bounce of the album version, breakbeat boy wonder Krafty Kuts straps a nuclear powered bassline to some funky beats, adds a dubstep twist in the middle and creates, in his own words, "a f**king monster!" of a remix.

Add further heavyweight mixes from TRG and Brooklyn bass-monger AC Slater and you’ve got a package perfect for the radio and record boxes alike.

What is Breakbeat


Breakbeat (sometimes breakbeats or breaks) is a term used to describe a collection of sub-genres of electronic music, usually characterized by the use of a non-straightened 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house or trance). These rhythms may be characterised by their intensive use of syncopation and polyrhythms.

 

History


In the late 1970s and early 1980s, hip-hop DJs (starting with Kool DJ Herc) began using several breaks (the part of a funk or jazz song in which the music "breaks" to let the rhythm section play unaccompanied) in a row to use as the rhythmic basis for hip-hop songs. Kool DJ Herc's breakbeat style was to play the same record on two turntables and play the break repeatedly by alternating between the two records (letting one play while spinning the second record back to the beginning of the break). This style was copied and improved upon by early hip hop DJs Afrika Bambaataa and Grand Wizard Theodore.This style was extremely popular in clubs and dance halls because the extended breakbeat was the perfect backdrop for breakdancers to show their skills.

In recent times, the term breakbeat has become synonymous with the many genres of breaks music which have become popular within the global dance music scene, including big beat, nu skool breaks and progressive breaks. DJs from a variety of genres, including house and techno, work breaks tracks into their sets. This may occur because the tempo of breaks tracks (ranging from 110 to 150 beats per minute) means they can be readily mixed with these genres, whereas the comparatively fast speed of jungle and drum and bass (160-180 bpm) may have restricted the utility of these subgenres to DJs playing slower-tempo music. Some artists well known for breakbeat include The Freestylers, NAPT, Dj Loopy, Pendulum, Soul Of Man, Dj deekline and wizard, Ben & Lex, The Breakfastaz, Ctrl Z, Stanton Warriors, Dj Icey, Freq Nasty and Plump DJ's.

Breakbeats are used in many hip hop, rap, jungle, and hardcore songs, and can also be heard in other music, from popular music to background music in car and jean commercials on the radio or TV.
