A breaks tape from J-Squared of Season’s Beatings/Off The Hook. I highly recommend this. And of course, all originals – no toy action here.

Playing Records – A collection of laid back funk, jazz and soul

I was playing some records one day and I pressed record on the tape deck. For the sample conscious, almost every track has been sampled on a hip hop record – see if you can spot them all…

HudsonBreaks – Breaks mix from 2005

Hip hop samples mix

Hip hop samples mix

Here’s a mix I did one day in January 2005 to help me shift a bad hangover – a run through a bunch of funk, soul, jazz and whatever breaks.  Not like it really matters anymore but these are all original pressing vinyl records blah blah blah: no compilation, no bootleg, no mp3…

HudsonBreaks Side 1

HudsonBreaks Side 2

I’ve always meant to do another one of these mixes.  If I get round to it I’ll put it on here so stay tuned.
