He usually wears a target shaped mask and he also carries a small box containing his unique and ultra powerful weapons, made of silver and gold! Legend says that were given to him by an old Voodoo magician of Santa Esmeralda islad in exchange for a precious 30years old bottle of tequila. These weapons, known also as “les mysticos de battle” helped him to eliminate all villains that terrorise innocent people in the Ghettos of his city. ALT-A, the mighty “El Old-Skoolico” and leader of the Luchadores old-skool community, long time partner and friend of Joe, comes in colours with his usual awesome techniques just to give his ultra-thrilling beatz, pieces and pianos in the war against crime!

Electric Draft - Break It (Colombo Remix)

Print PDF

Toast & Jam is proud to welcome Electric Draft to the family with his new track Break It. Break It is a funky retro-sounding throwback to the early days of breaks. Electric Draft has crafted some nice drums, funky synths, and a classic rave piano to take this track from the roller skating rink to the dance floor. For remix duties, we called on modern breakbeat legend Colombo to amp up the bass and he delivers a peak-time powerhouse of a remix. Rounding this release out is OFFSUN who gives Break It a modern progressive adaptation. Enjoy the funk!

FLETRIC - INTO SUNRISE

Print PDF

On a beautiful, clear night, the stars seem so close you could almost reach out and touch them. No one knows if the universe is infinitely large, or even if ours is the only universe there is. Although our view of the universe is limited, our imaginations are not. Astronomers have indirect evidence that the universe of galaxies extends far beyond the region we can see. But no one knows if the whole universe is infinitely large — large beyond limit. According to the leading theories, other parts of the universe may look very different from our own — and may even have different laws of nature. We may never be able to find out for sure. But it is possible that clues to the answer lie in plain view, just waiting to be discovered!

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.
