It’s probably wrong to boast about the BREAKS category on your blog, if it doesn’t have at least one CUT & RUN tune. I’m not one to boast, but I like to be qualified to do so.
CUT & RUN
A bootleg REMIX label that began in 2004, and quickly became recognized as the most popular Bootleg Breaks label in existence. As an archive, it contains hard hitting remixes of a wide array of popular dance music, from all-time classics, to contemporary hits, spread over a wide spectrum of styles, keeping up to date with popular trends, and all fitting loosely under the breakbeat umbrella.
Breaks has a long-standing tradition of Bootleg remixes, that stems from the genre’s origins of looping samples from easily recognizable tunes. As a result of this tradition, the genre’s most celebrated producers tend to be very good at transforming popular tunes into hard hitting, bassline heavy, breakbeat slammers. By far, one of the best of the bunch is DJ DEE KLINE, the man behind the anonymous productions found on the Cut & Run label.
As a huge fan of bootleg Breaks, my music collection contains quite a few Cut & Run releases. Below is a favourite of mine. GROUND CRU utilizes a sample, most commonly credited to DJ SS, from his JUNGLE classic, THE LIGHTER. BUT the sample actually originates from CRA-Z by THE FU-SCHNICKENS. Dee Kline combines this classic hype-up sample (and several others) with booming drums and fat, distorted basslines to smash the face of any Breaks head. Now you know. NOW LISTENNNNNN!….
