Krafty Kuts - A Golden Era Of Breakbeat

Is this possibly the best hour of beats ever compiled?

When this podcast landed the other day it had me running to my beat locker to see if the krafty Mr Kuts had snuck in and burgled my pantry! So many old favourites and classic basslines are crammed into this mix that Krafty will have to try very hard indeed to outdo himself in his next podcast instalment.

You really know this mix has arrived early on with the epic Fasten Your Seatbelts from the heyday of Pendulum and Freestylers. From there it's a breakbeat odyssey rammed full of anthems from the Plumps, Stanton Warriors, Drumattic Twins, Deekline and more, via classics from Azzido Da Bass, Reach and Spin and DJ Zinc and some personal favourites from Slyde, Sporty-O and Keith MacKenzie and Detroit Grand Pubahs. Plus there's a sneaky little interview towards the end with the Plump DJs and Freestylers fielding questions from Krafty.

And who better to steer this transatlantic bassliner through this perfect storm of breaks than Kaptain Krafty himself! Sit back, turn it up, and enjoy . . .

Listen on iTunes

Words from Krafty:
"This is the music that really took me around the globe and people associate Krafty Kuts with. For me some, of the most exciting and fresh sounding music has been with the breakbeat scene over the years. Playing to 40,000 people at the Exit Festival, headlining shows across Australia & New Zealand to big Festivals in the UK & Europe, USA & Canada. So many great artists have been a part of the Breaks scene ie. Freq Nasty, Plump DJ's, Stanton Warriors, Adam Freeland, Evil 9, DJ Icey, Deekline, Prodigy, Meat Katie, Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Rennie Pilgrem, Soul Of Man, Squarepusher, Pendulum, DJ Zinc & many more are all featured in this podcast. This was a trip down memory lane and I remember watching people lose there mind to so many of these tunes over the years and it's really good to see the Breakbeat scene still flourishing once again."
