about

The sound of the sixties and seventies has never been so sought after as at the present moment. You could even argue that modern music just isn’t good enough. As evidence, consider this: contemporary producers and artists are often looking back to get inspired – insert staggering number of examples – so you can safely say that even in this digital age the beating heart of modern R&B and hip-hop is still vintage soul, funk and jazz.

This is why BBE Records have teamed up with DJ/Producer Mr Thing, to dig deep into his extensive collection to compile a series of albums of rare and sought after breaks. This series reflects brilliantly on his dedication to digging for those untouched and unrivalled samples and breaks as you hear him use in his DJ sets. As a DJ, Mr Thing never fails to engage the crowd with his winning combination of hip hop and funk breaks spiced up with his legendary mixing and scratching skills.

The first installment in the five part “Strange Breaks & Things” series contains superb songs; some you’ve probably never heard of, some which may make you go: “I recognize this sample!”… because it was once used as the backdrop for a classic Hip Hop track. If you liked the legendary “Strange Games” compilation series on BBE compiled by the likes of Kenny Dope & DJ Spinna, you’ll love “Strange Breaks & Things”.

'Wouldn't it be fun,' they mused, 'To release some of these tunes?' And so BBE (Barely Breaking Even) was born. ... more
