This mix celebrates 18 years of Breakin Bread.

We started running club nights in 1998 in an old church in Brixton. Many club nights later we've booked a lot of guest DJs, bands and b-boy crews, played a hell of a lot of records and had a hell of a good time.

These are all tunes that have been big at BB and we've tried to cover all the styles that we have played at our events over the years. We've also tried to play tunes that have been released in the last 18 years but we've had to throw in a few classics for good measure.

All in all this mix sums up Breakin Bread pretty well. Good music, good times, good people and good vibes.

Our 18th Birthday Party is at The Alibi in Dalston on Saturday 22nd October


A CUT N PASTE MIX - Steeve The Sleeve

Steeve The Sleeve gets busy with his collection of Cut n Paste records.

From originators like Double Dee & Steinski & Davy DMX to newbies like Kazahaya and Mr Thing via legends like the Beastie Boys and Jazzy Jeff. Steeve steers a straight ship through the best of an underrated genre.

At Breakin Bread we love cut and paste it always gets the dance floor rocking and has been a staple in our DJ sets over the years. We hope you love cut n paste too! ENJOY



DJ Hudson has been doing dope mix tapes for years often with our man J Squared, this time round he's done a tasty breaks mix for us and here's what he says about it...

"Back in the mid 90s I got DJ Muro's King of Diggin' mixtape and it blew my mind - it was a mix of rare original samples that had been sampled on hip hop records using only original pressings - no compilations, no bootlegs. This was back when there was no internet, no youtube, no whosampled, so the effort put in to get these records was pretty astounding."

"What I've done is a tribute to Muro's tapes and others like it from Kon & Amir and Ken Sport where I mix up original samples (and some unused gems) that I've found over the years from scouring through car boot sales, charity shops and thrift stores worldwide.

Expect to hear the originals from people like MF Doom, Kanye, De La, 9th Wonder and so much more... here it is - Car Boot Adventures aka Oxfam Jams aka Chazza Shop Gold!"



Skeg and Steeve The Sleeve select some of the best new wax around. Brand new tunes and re-issues from the funk, soul, hip hop, disco and beats scenes (plus anything else that fits in between!). This is the good stuff! ENJOY!



To celebrate our summer party session one of our resident DJ's Tony S has put together another Summer Party Grooves mix.

The mix takes in soul, funk, disco, beats, house and more. From the old to the new this mix reflects the anything goes nature and all round good vibes of our nights.

Our parties at the Alibi happen every 3 months and the summer party is always special. For details of our next party check www.facebook.com/events/280181462369578/


We hope to see you on the floor sometime soon!



Breakin Breads man in Japan is back with another killer mix. Soul, Funk, Disco, Hip Hop, Beats and more! Including some of his own productions and his latest release "Miracles". Enjoy the golden sound!

Follow Kazahaya:



Here is one of our guest mix shows. We've been to Vienna a few times to spin wax and the guy that sorted us out a few gigs over there was DJ d.b.h. He's one of the founding fathers of the Austrian hip hop scene and he's also a dope DJ with a deep and varied record collection.

His mix starts smooth & slow with some Hip Hop, Soul & Beats and than gets more eclectic with some Funk & Disco. It grooves all the way through and finishes with a rare slow austrian funk gem from the 60's. ENJOY!



Skeg digs deeper into his record collection to find some gems that haven't been played in a while. You'll hear some deep funk, obscure hip hop and electro, rare soul, classy disco and more. These tunes don't normally get to shine, we hope you enjoy them!


MAY 2016

Skeg and Steeve The Sleeve get together again for our bi-monthly focus on new music and re-issues. There’s a lot of disco this time round peppered with our normal mix of soul, funk, hip hop, jazz, beats and more.

This is the best stuff in the shops right now. Enjoy the show and go and buy some of this on vinyl!


FLOORWAX - Breakin Bread at The Alibi April 2016, DJ SKEG

Breaducation Part 2 - DJ Moneyshot

Welcome to another guest mix by our compadre DJ Moneyshot.

Continuing the "Breaducation" series, this is another dope mix of underground hip-hop, soul, funk, breaks, beats and even a bit of ZZ top! This man can mix!!! Enjoy!

The last track, "ROCK ROCK" is by Moneyshot's crew, The Allergies. It drops as a video and 7" single on April 15th. From the album, "As We Do Our Thing", out May 13th on Jalapeno Records.



Skeg met DJ Shoki whilst on a visit to Tokyo. Shoki's record selection and style on the decks was dope so Skeg asked Shoki if he wanted to do some mixes for The BB show.

This is his second mix for us and he takes us deep into a Golden Era time of a world of underground hip hop mix tapes. This is a big nod to Red Alert, Kid Capri and a bunch of other underground DJs who influenced a whole generation of worldwide DJs.

A proper hip hop mix to take you back there! ENJOY!


MARCH 2016

Skeg and Steeve The Sleeve get together again to bring you the freshest new sounds on wax.

We do these shows every couple of months and the boys select the finest new releases and re-issues from the worlds of soul, funk, disco, hip hop, beats, breaks and more. This is the best stuff around right now! Enjoy!



The Breakin Bread crew love playing breaks for B-Boys so we're always looking for decent mixes of B-Boy tracks.

Here we present a few lesser known records on the B-Boy scene, Skeg is joined by DJ Oonops who delivers a dope mix and says... "Finally, here are my breaks for expressive and open minded b-boys and fly girls with some hot classics, edits and yet unreleased vinyl goodness"... that's what we like to hear! We hope you do too!

Oonops profiles:



The Breakin Bread Crew are well known for spinning Disco alongside Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, Breaks and Beats.

As mere teenagers themselves at the time, the show is a reflection of when british soul music was not only becoming mainstream and exporting itself around the world it was also firmly part of a Hip Hop scene that saw collaborations with some of the leading rappers of the time from across the pond.



Skeg gets busy in the deepest recesses of his crates pulling out some tunes he hasn't played in a while.

THE PARTY ROCKERS! Breakin Bread Classics

To celebrate 15 years of Breakin Bread clubnights Skeg dug out some of the tunes that over the years have become Breakin Bread Classics...

These are the surefire partyrockers that the crew have played the most over the years because they sum up our sound completely... drum heavy, deep groovin', asshakers...hip hop, soul, funk, beats, breaks, latin and more.

This was an all vinyl excursion like we used to do it... Skeg kicks off with some tracks that warm up the dancefloor and builds up to some big guns that work every time.

We've had great fun over the last 15 years and this mix reminds us of all the good times.



We started off our club nights in Brixton in 1998... 15 years of block rocking parties and we're still going.

To celebrate our 15th birthday and to start the countdown to the party we've asked one of our resident DJ's Tony S to put together a mix of the sort of stuff we play at our nights. Tony has done us proud with a mix of surefire dancefloor fillers with a heavy lean towards D-I-S-C-O via a bit of jazz, funk and hip hop.

London-based producer and DJ Tony S enjoys mixing musical styles. A former jazz student and session bass player, and current prolific producer of deep house, he is equally at home producing and playing disco and underground house music.

One things for sure, he definitely knows how to get you dancing

Breakin Bread have always rocked all elements and the B-Boys are at the centre of the nights we've put on for the last 15 years.

We've had the best B-Boy DJ's in Europe passing through our clubnights and spinning the heaviest breaks for the circle.

It's long overdue that we did a special show concentrating on B-Boy Breaks and we called in one of London's finest breaks specialists DJ Credit One for the job.

Credit brought over 3 huge sacks of wax and cut up breaks and chatted to Skeg along the way. All sorts of music genres have gone into this mix soul, funk, rock, latin, library and more.

New-School Breaks For The B-Boys

A mix of productions from the last few years aimed at the modern b-boy scene. Breakin Bread have supported the modern b-boy since they first opened their doors as a clubight in 1998.

As heavy record diggers Skeg and Rob Life always spun original breaks alongside hip hop and as soon as the new school of London b-boys heard about it this vibe spread across Europe as we flew in crews from Germany, France and Switzerland to battle the UK's finest.

The Breakin Bread B-boy pedigree also reached stateside with DJ's like Skeme Richards and Z Trip reaching out to the Breakin Bread Crew.

Now those links have borne further fruit as the crew have linked up with K. Sabroso a Brooklyn B-boy and DJ to release a series of 7"s.

To celebrate the linkup K. Sabroso has put together this mix.

No tracklisting...sorry!

BREAKS N BEATS - BNB meets Skyline Records

Malachi Trout aka The Flying Fish from Skyline Records visited Skeg recently and asked if he could play some breaks from his 7" crate.

Now that is the sort of thing the Breakin Bread crew cant resist so we dug deep into our crates and went for a breaks and beats fest.

From classic funk via b-boy breaks, a touch of jazz and an excursion into latin breaks we ended up in a bit of hip hop.

All breaks heavy this reminds us of the early days of Breakin Bread. ENJOY!


80's Rap Special Pt 2

Rarely do Skeg, Steeve The Sleeve and J Squared get to record a show together these days, its got to be something special to link them up and they cant resist the lure of an 80's Rap Show.

They had such a good time recording the first part of this series of shows so they went back home, dug deep in the crates and pulled together some of the best hip hop releases of the 80's for Part 2...

Nice chunks of wax that hadn't been pulled out of their sleeves for a while... from 808 heavy beats, thru early sampling to full blown epics this is how it was back in the day... ENJOY!

This is the quality stuff that can lounge at the back of a record collection for years but should never be forgotten.

From some strange beats via some unknown underground hip hop to a classic funk drum break via some new school latin and also stopping off for a bit of disco action and a cheeky bit of house Skeg takes you on a journey there and back again. Enjoy people...

Vintage Sounds New Pressings

Who doesn't love a bit of 7" vinyl? We certainly do and we buy far too many of them.

So what you've got here is the best Soul, Funk, R&B and Hip Hop thats had some lovely label press it up on vinyl.

Mysdiggi Special

So we have dealt with a lot of MC's since we started Breakin Bread 14 years ago. Some good ones, some bad ones... One of the best that ever blessed the mic at one of our nights is West London's very own Mystro.

He's got a new album out and we thought we'd celebrate that landmark by getting him up into the Breakin Bread lab for some banter, some of his inspirations and also to spin some soul, funk and hip hop that both us and him love. He brought some interesting things to the table... mutha lovers!


Kazahaya - Soul on Japan

Kazahaya is Breakin Bread's Japanese beatmaker with that classic boom bap sound. He's also a collector of soul, funk, jazz and hip hop vinyl with numerous mix CDs to his name.

We first heard his productions when he was looking for distribution in Europe and we were blown away by his beats... they weren't your standard new school beats, nor were they your throwback to the golden era copycat beats. Kaza has his own style of beats with soul, they vibrate with passion and swing with finesse.

He has gone on to release a number of his own productions on Breakin Bread wax and he has opened us up to a whole world of Japanese beats.

To celebrate his latest release he has put together a podcast of his favourite Japanese beats. This isn't a mix of soul, funk and jazz, its a mix of beats with soul, funk and jazz. Spot the samples...


Diggin In The Crates October 2012

Skeg gets busy in his crates once again after moving house and discovering a few long lost recesses of his record collection.

This sums up Breakin Bread, a little bit of everything in the pot and the final result comes out funky and then some! ENJOY!

Vintage Styles - Breakin Bread At The Blues Kitchen

We've been asked alot recently to post up a mix of the sort of stuff we play at our residency at The Blues Kitchen in Camden Town, London - so here you go.

We don't play much hip hop based music down there as it doesnt fit the crowd so this is a selection of the sounds you'll hear... vintage music all the way. Soul, Funk, Jazz, Latin and Jukebox Tittyshakin' R&B is what we fitted on this mix.

We also drop some b-boy breaks and disco down there and the combo is enough to fill the dancefloor every time!

The Breakin Bread posse all got together in the place to be for this 80's rap special cos this is where we're from and when we first got into the hip hop that led us to start diggin all the funk, soul, disco, breaks, beats and all that dope stuff.

When we did get together we realised there was way too much decent hip hop from that decade to fit into a 2 hour show... so let's call this Part 1!

Its all hip hop but in this era you can hear the soul, funk and disco tearing thru before the drum machines took over and the beats got harder and harder! Proper old school bigness. Enjoy!


The Edenheight Selection

Edenheight celebrate the release of their second single on wax with a podcast where they get deep with the selections. Some of the music they like and love alongside a couple of their own productions.

Edenheight are a deep-groovin' and original outfit with a soulful urban sound. Forged in Bristol, their list of influences favour more percussive styles including Afro, Funk, Hip Hop & Dub, and as such dance-ability is a precedent.

This standard owes as much to an evolution in the UK's underground live scene as to their appreciation of high energy musicianship and production.


Breakin Bread May 2012

Steve the Sleeve and Jsquared are back with two hours of the funkiest fun you'll find all month. The lads mourn the passing of MCA and Donald "Duck" Dunn as well as dropping some unlikely record of the month contenders from some unlikely sources.

Some of the best new music to come out this month, some break to the beat, some edits and even some vinyl - it's all there!


Para - Like Moths

Para decided to do this mix after a night of watching Television, program after program of complete irrelevant Nonsense sandwhiched between advert after advert trying their best to sell me something we really don't need. He turned off the TV and started working on this mix.

He was initially going to make this a complete Instrumental mix but ended up dropping the odd vocal track in there too Its a little darker than his usual mixes but gave him the opportunity to include tracks that we really like listening to.

It's a non stop continuous 60 minute mix and we are giving it away for free so Enjoy.

Para has been putting out mix CD's since the late 90's, he joined the Breakin Bread stable in 2007 and has put out a few 7"s a couple of mix CDs and his debut album. And, enjoy!


Kazahaya Soul On Galaxy

This month we've got a special feature from Breakin Bread's Japanese arm. Kazahaya began his music career as a DJ in 1994 and started Beat Making in 1999. His style is that classic boom bap to make you shake your ass on the dancefloor.

He self released a number of 12"s and mix CD's until he came to the attention of Breakin Bread with a stunning 12" Remember Hip Hop in 2009.

We put a European version of this out in 2010 and it quickly became one of our bestsellers and has long been out of print.

This mix celebrates new Kazahaya music coming out on Breakin Bread in 2012. We've got a series of 7"s coming from the man and to show you how deep he is we've posted up this incredible mix of soul, funk, beats and hip hop that Kaza put out in 2009.

This is an all vinyl mix showing that the man deserves to be up there with some of the world's best.
