Breakbeat Classics, Old School Drum & Bass and Hardcore

Time for a bit of fun. This is a classic drum and bass/jungle and old school hardcore set. These are genres from our early 20’s when the rave scene was in full flow here in the UK. Parties were free and the atmosphere and music were the most important elements of the night.

The DJ’s travelled across the country throughout the night to play up to 5 venues in a single night and any promising DJ’s, sometimes as young as 14 or 15 were welcomed into the scene to play sets in front of hundreds of happy music lovers.

Let us know what you think in the comments – and thanks for listening! Dan & Ben.

Hola amigos – we’ve had a great week being introduced to so many new and amazing DJ’s and tracks. Particularly enjoyed Nina Kravitz on BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06vfz4p) if you missed it, it’s worth a listen if you love minimal and having just bought tickets to see Koma & Bones play for the frst time in many years we have to mention one of their best sets too (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIma5Vho1gg).

This week’s set is a journey from breakbeat to minimal and back again, bringing in some tech house sounds here and there before some older breaks to round it all off.

Hope you enjoy – let us know if it works for you, Dan & Ben.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. We’ve been enjoying so many of the recent mixes being posted on here, in particular Sean’s recent breaks mix was so so good (BRING THAT BREAK BACK!).

This set wasn’t planned in any way, we just picked a starting tune and let the mix flow from there. Loads of tracks we’ve not played before with plenty of broken beats and darker sounds. We really had a lot of fun putting this together so hope it’s as good for you listening back as it was for us to make.

This set is mainly bass and beats driven but there’s maybe more of a house vibe going on this week. We start off on our 1.5 hour journey with some breaks and then flow through some tech house dropping in a little minimal and electro along the way.

We really appreciate you taking the time to check out our mixes and thanks for all the positive feedback!
