DJ Break - Tape 5, The Breakin' Point

I picked up this tape back in around 1994 or 1995 from some wack clothing store at a mall in Rhode Island. I was probably picking up a plaid Starter jacket or some shit… I don’t remember what played out item of clothing it actually was, but I do remember going to the counter to pay and seeing all these bootleg-looking mixtapes calling to me from under the fingerprint-heavy glass. I asked the dude behind the counter what he recommended and he pulled out this, and said that the shit was selling fast…

Thanks $5-an-hour-in-1994-counter-working dude! You happened to have some real good taste (zing!)

Break is a RI-based DJ who’s been on the go since 1992. He’s definitely got a touch of the ‘A to the L’s’ about him though, as in 15 years of DJing he’s only released 14 tapes, and from tape 8 onwards he moved to cds. Tape Five was my first introduction to Break though, and I definitely like how he does things. Those of you who checked the Ron G tape earlier this month, will spot similarities with Break’s work here – tons of layered blends throughout, with some really interesting song combinations. In addition, his work on the fader is superb, so there’s an extra treat for you navel-gazing turntablist nerds here.

The intro section is worth the whole $5 I paid for this, and you’re getting it for FREE!
