It's obvious that music has 'evolved' over the years. RNB is no longer RNB, rock is no longer hard and bad ass as it was back in the days and everyone has jumped on the dubstep bandwagon.
So how has our beloved 'BREAKS' evolved to you?
I personally miss the funkiness of breaks. It used to be such a great vibe when a breaks joint gets dropped and it just makes all the booty shakes. It went into a very electro influenced stage where I wasn't a real fan of. There were way too many electro tunes being 're-rubbed' with a break beat over it. There wasn't too many orignal stand out tracks. Breaks seemed to have lost it ways for a while.
Over the last 2 or so years it's great to see some of the OGs of breaks making some originals again. There has been an increase on new and exciting talents too. I feel like that it's made a steady comeback. There are a lot of the wobble bassline in tracks these days, but I don't mind it. If you listen to early Deekline, Ed Solo and Skool Of Thoughts and a few others from back in 2004-05ish they've been using a lot of those wobble bassline, so really I'm suprise that it's just really picked up over the last few years. I guess witht the influence of dubstep playing a big factor. Also on that dubstep influence tip, I think that the big banging sounds of the 140BPM breaks are coming around again which is a WIN!
I'm pretty happy where breaks is at the moment. The beats are once again broken and not 4X4 As a huge hip-hop fan I like what Nu-Funk\Ghetto Funk has brought to the breaks game. It's brought that funk back as well as injecting it with the hip-hop flavas. The use of rap vocals and samples are always exciting to hear. You never know what samples will get drop. When one that people recognises they go nuts! These days you can't really pigeon hole yourself to one genre and I think this is where Nu-Funk\Ghetto Funk stands out. It branches out to all these other genres like dubstep, DNB and hip-hop.
So once again, how do you feel that breaks has evolved? What do you miss and what are you liking about it at the moment? Let's start discussing things again in this forum .....
