If the only breakbeat you ever come across is still Fat Boy Slim and Crystal Method, it’s not your fault, blame it on the hype of mass media & the lack of social media back then. Now, there’s nothing to stop anyone from digging deeper to find out if there are more. Many years later, I still owe much to Yukun for egging me on to do up this promo mixset and helping out with the distribution of the CD to the hungry ears out there (*I suck at marketing myself). Personally, it was ground-breaking stage of my life; I had never been to any breakbeat party before, let alone afford any vacation to club overseas. Coupled with an active imagination of a non-existent dancefloor, the mixset was conceived in wax, 2nd hand turntables and a crappy Gemini mixer in my bedroom.
Of how these vinyls ended up with me, it was a mystery to those chin-strokers who had this mental image of me heading down to a proper DJ record store or HMV to source for these goodies. The truth is I started out not even knowing how or where to go about ordering vinyls from overseas. They were mostly vinyls stashed in unwanted boxes at this strange store up on the Army Market at Beach Road. I still remembered the concerned face of the owner, Andy who kept asking me, “You collect this?”
Hence if you are a vinyl head or looking up for these tracks in this set, good luck and have fun clicking for the digital copies!
