Between 1998 and 2003 there was nothing cooler than nu skool breaks. While The Prodigy were confirmed MIA apart from their generally scorned and maligned assault-metaphor-ridden ‘Baby’s Got A Temper’, and platinum blonde extensions were clogging up the motors of every 2-step garage DJ’s Technics, a new electronic genre was bubbling up from the underground. Nu Skool Breaks was the bastard child of techno and big-beat, using electronic textures, syncopated beats, squelchy synths, and classic vocal samples to create an entirely new sound. But it wasn’t to last. Whatever happened to Nu Skool Breaks?

Dopamine's hold you isn't even on there, what nonsense list is this? And shouldn't Adam Freeland be on there at least once? Heel 'n toe comes to mind, though that's just a personal favorite of mine.
