    Default What is nu skool breaks ?

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nu skool breaks is a form of breakbeat music genre, combining the futuristic sense of drum and bass, the sounds of techno, the bass of dub and the beats from real drummers and drum machines. The genre also prominently features electro and hip-hop influences and tracks typically run at 130 to 140 bpm.

    Default What is breakz..........

    THE SOUND: Beats and Breaks is a genre classification we have derived to encompass Breakbeat and other sounds that spread outside of the conventional 4/4 bass structure of House music. 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-straighted 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house or trance). These rhythms may be characterised by their use of syncopation and polyrhythms, which are prominent in all music of African origin, including much Afro-American music.

    THE HISTORY: In the 1970s, hip-hop DJs (starting with DJ Kool Herc) began using several breaks (the part of a funk and jazz song in which the music breaks to make room for the rhythm section only) in a row to use as the rhythmic basis for hip-hop songs. One of the most commonly-used breaks was the Amen Break, which has appeared in many songs from many different genres.

    In the early 1990s, acid house artists and producers started using breakbeat samples in their music to create breakbeat hardcore, aka rave music. The hardcore scene then diverged with one of the main offshoots being jungle music which had a darker sound and focused more on developing the use of complex breaks within its tracks. Jungle itself eventually diverged into various genres commonly known as drum and bass.

    In recent times, the term breakbeat has become synonymous for many with the genres of breaks music which have become popular within the global dance music scene, including nu skool breaks and progressive breaks, with DJs from a variety of genres such as house and techno working breaks tracks into their sets. This may occur because the tempo of breaks tracks (ranging from 115 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 (165-180 bpm) may have restricted the utility of these subgenres to DJs playing slower-tempo music.

    Breakbeat (or funky breakbeat) may also refer to the music of bands such as Breakestra, who play funk and soul music with an emphasis on the elements that would become popular in hip-hop and later breaks-based music.

    THE PROPONENTS: The breakbeat genre has been defined over the past several years by artists like the Stanton Warriors, The Plump DJs, Krafty Kuts, Ali B, Meat Katie, Elite Force, Rennie Pilgrem, Tayo and Adam Freeland.
