hello all,
just wondering if you guys had any thought on the emergence of acts that produce psy-break type of tune (digitalis, Blowfish, Halycon, Space Monkey,..)? Personnaly I love it, Psy and Breaks being my favorite genre, Psy-breaks is just rocking!
And...(here comes the self promotion thing :Smile3: ) tonight and every thursday I am hosting a live radio show on www.inthesound.com at 9PM GMT so come on and tune in!

I was very excited about the idea of psybreaks before I had actually heard any made, and started making some tunes myself as a result. But i didn't get it sorted quick enough, and now have a few almost finished numbers whilst I've moved onto other things! A shame.
I can't wait until there's a breaks stage at some psy parties!! :speaker:

I love breaks stuff but was very dissappointed by the Timecode psybreaks compilation, which was very dark and industrial, and not at all the vibe I was looking for. How would you describe the style of the psy-breaks acts you mention above?

BTW will try to remember to give your radio show a listen tonight! :Smile3:

There was at the Glade festie last year :Grin:

Wasn't all psy-breaks, just breaks in general, but the vibe fitted in really well with the rest of the festie I thought

The Hill is alive with the sound of music
Breaks tent at Glade was great! Had a good stomp there at various points over the weekend!

i'm really interested in the idea of psy breakbeat - i love the twisted sounds of psy but i also really like interesting beats which don't rely on the doof-doof-doof approach of trance.

most of the tunes i've written, especially the most recent, have sections of breakbeat in them, and i really like being able to switch from breaks to a more generic trance beat in the same song. (dunno if people agree though!)

i have to say though, i haven't listened to much psy breakbeat. are there any completely (or mostly) breakbeat psy albums? could anyone recommend any cos i'd like to have a listen to some samples...

I think we're on the same page here. :Smile3: I'm a longtime psy-freak and maybe even moreso a breaks freak nowadays. :ph34r: I'm seeing more of a demand amongst proggy DJs for some breaks flavor, so now we just need a some producers and labels to get the sound out. I have been getting my fix for the psychedelic side of break from some stuff in the breakbeat/nu-skool scene. Artists like Introspective, Karton, Silencer, and a few others get me rockin'. The new compilation on VP Records called Inspirazzia has a really nice psy-flavored breaks track from Feuerhake. Worth checking out - and I think he plans to do more in the style. :Smile3:

I'll definitely have to check this out! It looks like I read this post about 3 hours too late to tune in, but I'll definitely check it out next week.

And a little bit of related self-promo here - I am also hosting a regular internet broadcast on www.eccentricbeats.com. Every 1st & 3rd Monday of the month, from 7-9pm GMT. I always manage to bust out some breaks on the show - actually it's tough for me to go 30 minutes without it. :Grin: It's called Broken Symmetry. Check it out if you got the time (next broadcast is this coming Monday).

completey forgot to listen to your show Im afraid! :unsure: :rolleyes: . I'll try and remember next week, but I don't suppose you'd want to put a psybreaksy mix up on the dj mix board would you? That would be very :cool: .

cool, I'll d/l it when i get home. :Smile3:
I was wondering actually how much breakbeat gets released on cd? Is it pretty much all mainly vinyl?
Iv just ordered some cdj 100s but i really want to learn to mix the two genres together eventually (psy and breaks that is).
Don't really fancy having a 4 deck setup, although it would look pretty damn cool! :P

elf,
yes you are right, all the good break stuffs are on Vinyl and all the good psy stuffs are on CDs!

although when i went to fabric for the breakspoll night back in feb - i was amused to see soul of man, meat katie, plump djs, and may of the others using cdj1000s :Grin: (if only cos my mate is a breakz purist and is snobby about psy-djs using 'easy' cd decks to mix on so 'twas fun digging him)

How do I like my breaks? Plump DJs, Meat Katie, Slyde, Soul Of Man, Elite Force, Koma & Bones, Christian J, Vigi & Nectarios, General Midi, Madox, Santos, Stereo 8...etc
Are you playing any of that stuff on your show?
