SHADE K - LOUD/GIVE UP NOW ft.NAIBLAZE

Print PDF

SHADE K is a fresh and proud Luchador that live with his mother and can usually be found with a cigar in his mouth. A party animal, he is usually in a cheerful gait while his teammates brood. From a very young age Shade, in light of his family poor finance’s, drops out of college to become a successful lounge singer at a local club. A fact he keeps secret from his father, a washed-up wrestler under the name of Tonino. Tonino has had some recent popularity in the ring, only due to Shade bribing other wrestlers to lose. Shade is also secretly moonlighting as the masked Luchador “Huracan Ramizer” to further help with the household expenses. He is assisted by his somewhat dim-witted friend, Naiblaze, who doubles as his trainer and his stand-in for any situation in which Fernando and Huracan might have to be seen at the same time!

KRISTIAN BLACK - INFECTED

Print PDF

Russian producer Kristian Black makes his Toast & Jam debut with Infected and we couldn't be more excited to share it with the Jam Fam. He lays a nice harmonic bass line over a beefy kick and snare, and for the finale, adds a high synth in the final section to round out this excellent breakbeat journey. We are loving this track and can't wait for more big things from Mr. Black.

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.
