Breakbeat House


Take a Phat Funk break, speed it up to about 140 BPM, overlay a squelchy synth bassline and possibly a TB 303 acid pattern then top it off with a cool vocal sample or well-versed rap and who will have a badass Breakbeat House track.

I first heard this sound when I was in California, hanging with a DJ friend of mine after Burning Man. It seemed nuts to me; the producers had taken the best aspects from Hip Hop and Rap and fused them with House, a winning combination.

This mix is just a small taste of the chaos that is Breakbeat House; if you want more, I recommend you seek out artists like Stanton Warriors and Plump DJs for another hit.
