BLACK GOLD mix - DJ d.b.h

At the time of the Winter Olympics our man from the Tyrol mountains in Austria, DJ d. b. h takes the gold medal for a superb selection of rare 45s on wax.

Taking in Soul and Funk the mix starts off slow and grows in tempo like a skier picking up speed on his final run before heading off for Apres Ski. The second part of the mix is a more relaxed affair so you can imagine yourself sharing a glass of Gluhwein with your loved one whilst watching the snow fall outside.

All in all a quality mix of quality wax. ENJOY!

DJ MONEYSHOT - Dollar Dollar Bin Y'All!

We're more than happy to welcome DJ Moneyshot from The Allergies back into the guest mix seat.

This man has got the skills to pay the bills and then some and this time round he's gone off piste to select killer hour of breaks, funk, soul and disco, from artists far more known for their pop cheese than their dope sample fodder.

Expect Dolly Parton gettin' funky, Barry Manilow strutting it up, tough drums from ABBA, dancefloor soul from a pre-Kung Fu Fighting Carl Douglas, and the illlest percussion break from just Good Friends TV star, Paul Nicholas.

To put together a mix like this shows serious digging skills. Its not hard to find Pound Shop funk and charity shop breaks but it is hard to find dope ones! Going out to all those digging in the charity shop bargain bins, you'll be knocked out with this one. "Dollar dollar bin, y'all!"

WIGGAZ WITH ATTITUDE - Words and Music Special

Skeg invites Andrew Emery aka Drew Huge into the BB studio to discuss Andrew's new book Wiggaz with Attitude. The boys chat about growing up as a hip hop fan in the 80's, how hip hop changed their lives and play some tunes related to that era.

Andrew Emery says "...the tracks Skeg and I chose really are the soundtrack to much of my life and the lifeblood of the book - new sounds like nothing that had come before, that turned me from pop music and metal to a life dominated by hip-hop. The book aims to capture my joy at hearing this stuff as an 11-year-old.

DJ Hudson always delivers the goods and this mix is no different. However, what is different here is that you don't hear many mixes taking in this era of hip hop. This is pre "golden-age" but not quite old enough for old school and an era that is often ignored.

This is what we're calling the Flava Era, early 90's Bizness from both the US and the UK From hip hop to street soul via high top fades, Dance Energy and some slightly dodgy attire, The Flava Era was dope!

For those that were there then, enjoy the reminiscing. For the younger crew this is what we did back in the day!!

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.

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/

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!

From deep beats, via esoteric country funk, to new school disco, onto old school hip hop, with a bit of left field afro and tropical thrown in.

This is the backbone of the Breakin Bread sound, records we don't play very often that deserve to be played a bit more. ENJOY!



Paul T from Color Climax digs into his crates and pulls out some of his favourite Funk and Soul 45s. Getting eep and dirty, this is the raw sound of America in the 60's and 70's, feel the groove y'all!

We're going way back with this special show, back into a time before Soul had a name, before Funk was more than a smell, as Tittyshakers were making the ladies grind and as Rhythm and Blues was shaping Rock n Roll.

This is Vintage RnB not Street Soul or jiggy RnB. This is far more blues than bling, this the real original 50s and 60's RnB. Deep sounds people!

This is the second part of Skeg's "Party Rockers" series of mixes, this time round Skeg plays some of the tunes that have been dropped at prime time when the club is packed and the set then runs through to some classics that always get dropped towards closing time.

The mix runs from big banging tracks to more soulful chilled numbers and includes some records that you won't hear much in other clubs but have become bona fide Breakin Bread Classics. We hope you enjoy and hope this reminds the Breakin Bread punters of the great nights we've hosted over the years.


Carnival Classics

Our favourite weekend of the year - Notting Hill Carnival - is fast approaching and to celebrate J Squared & Steve The Sleeve have put together a mix of their favourites from the last 20 years.

Library music has become a genre in its own right and aficionados like Paul T have amazing collections of music most people have never heard of.

J-Squared is joined in the Breakin Bread studio by Tayo3000 as they go back and visit some of the best music to come out of these shores towards the end of the 80's and start of the 90's.

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.

This is the Breakin Bread formula, a 2 hour ride into the unknown joining the dots between beats, breaks, jazz, soul, funk, tropical, disco, hip hop and more. We hope you enjoy the ride!

If you were around in the early 90's you'll know what we mean...not really rare music but a feel, a vibe, grooves that want to make you move. Norman Jay, Gilles Peterson and even Trevor Nelson, they were al pioneers of the RARE GROOVE and we're back in that zone... ENJOY!

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


B-Boy Breaks - Skeg and DJ Credit One

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.

Clear some space in your lounge and get ready to rock!


THINGS WE LIKE - J Squared and DJ Hudson

J-Squared and Hudson were part of Off The Hook, a club night in the East Midlands running in the early 2000s and went on to do a series of mix CDs such as Soundhog, The Indoor League, Season's Beatings and more recently #ADM (Analogue Dance Music) alongside Southern Hospitality's Rob Pursey.

Booming Baps sums this up nicely... Fresh for 2013 peeps!

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!



Sun is shining, weather is sweet... it's time for Steve The Sleeve and J Squared to bring you two hours of killer tunes.

Covering new cuts from Shuggie Otis, Black Milk & Joyce as well as bonafide classics from Odyssey, London Posse and more - give your ears a treat!


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!



Skeg invited the HBSMA boys over for dinner and they brought a load of soundtracks with them, this show is the result. Groovy, Funky, Emotional tracks that backed some of the best films ever made this is a delight for the diggers out there.

Check out @HBSMA on Twitter and You Tube.

Funk and fun combined... in a shed!


Kazahayas Soul On Ice

Breakin Breads man in Japan Kazahaya has a new single out and to celebrate he dug out this classic mix he did back in 2005.

Kaza's beats are funky and then some, harking back to the Marley Marl days that kicked off the golden age of hip hop.

This mix shows you some of his influences behind that style, Soul, Funk, Breaks, Hip Hop all mixed with the same swagger and finesse as he puts into his beats... Soul... On Ice!


Breakin Bread April 2013

J Squared & Steve The Sleeve take to the decks to bring you some of the finest new music around right now alongside a healthy dose of stone-cold classics.

Covering all styles in true Breakin Bread fashion, strap yourself in for two hours of funky fun.

Diggin In The Crates March 2013

Skeg dug in his stacks of wax once more to pull out a load of stuff that is certifiably dope but doesn't get played much down the Breakin Bread club.

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...


Skeg and Ed Meme Spin Some Records...

Skeg got Glenn Fallows from Ed Meme up into the Breakin Bread studio to spin some vinyl and chat about the new Ed Meme single just out on Breakin Bread.

Glenn brings a selection of soul, funk and latin inspiring Skeg to pull out some gems.

February 2013

In their first audio outing of 2013 Steeve the Sleeve and J-squared are "back together..." to bring you the unexpected influx of great new music that 2013 has already brought us.

Mixed up with a few bits that didn't make the best of 2012 show and of course a great smattering of oldies and re-edits - they've started 2013 the right way... We hope you enjoy...


Vintage Sounds New Pressings

Who doesn't love a bit of 7" vinyl? We certainly do and we buy far too many of them. Skeg built a new 7"s shelf lately and realised there was loads of stuff pressed in the last few months that hadn't been spun on the show. 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.

In this digital age all the labels still putting out 7"s deserve a big shout!

Props to all the people buying vinyl and keeping the art of putting a record on the decks alive! Support...


BEST OF 2012

Skeg , Steeve The Sleeve and J Squared get together for their annual gathering to spin their best tunes of the year.

Ritmos Latinos Part 3 - Chris Read

Chris Read has just released his 3rd single on Breakin Bread and to celebrate he's done us this little guest mix to accompany the single. Both sides from the 45rpm 7" wax are here alongside some other new and old bits and pieces of a similar style: Samba, Bossa, Cumbia, Boogaloo and more, all from a modern producer's perspective.

We hope you enjoy, this is sure to brighten up the Northern Hemisphere winter...


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 as far from genre specific as you can get as Skeg goes from disco to soul to cut n paste via a mash up or two and some bad ass beatsy numbers.

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


October 2012 Show

Summer is over but J Squared & Steve The Sleeve bring the heat to your ears on the latest Breakin Bread show.

Spinning the finest old and new music from Craig G, Thelonious Monk, Flying Lotus & Public Enemy, settle down for two hours of globe-trotting beats & breaks.


The Getup - Influences and Inspirations

Hammond led funskters The Getup are a new addition to the Breakin Bread roster. After a few storming live performances down at The Blues Kitchen we just had to get some of their brand of hard hammond soul funk out there.

This, their first podcast for the us, showcases some of the bands influences and promises hard funk and groovy soul all the way, with some time honoured classics and a few rarities thrown in for good measure.


Breakin Bread September 2012

It's Steve The Sleeve and J Squared up in the lab this month, for our monthly new music show.

The boys bring you a selection of the hottest new hip-hop, soul, funk, jazz along with a sprinkling of classic cuts.

From the streets of London and across the musical map...it's all here!


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!

If you ever make it to London, we hope to see you on the floor!


Torch Bearer Mix - Para Aesthetics

Breakin Bread are ready for The Olympics thanks to Para's Aesthetics Torch Bearer Mix.

A hard hitting uplifting mix of beats, breaks, rhymes and cuts...

Aesthetics is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of beauty, art and taste and with the creation and appreciation of beauty. What's that got to do with the Olympics? It just feels good! Enjoy.


Breakin Bread July 2012

A very special show for you this month as J Squared & Steve The Sleeve welcome Marc Mac to the show to talk about his new album as Visioneers, "Hipology".

Plus a selection of the funkiest old & new cuts across the board!


80's Rap Special

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.


Breakin Bread March 2012

J Squared & Steeve The Sleeve return with a post SXSW special featuring tracks from some of the festival's heaviest hitters.

Diggin' In The Crates March 2012

Sister Funk Special

After an extended break the Breakin Bread crew are back with one of their specials.
