Classic Material: ‘The Breaks of 88’

A continuation of sorts from The Diary and Classic Material mix series, ‘The Breaks of ...’ revisits the chronological theme of those mixes, this time reconstructing classic hip hop from the year in question utilising only the original sample material. Originally released on Limited Edition Cassette in the summer of 2013, I thought it was about time these mixes got an airing online. This edition reconstructs the hits of 1988. Artwork by John Brotherhood in tribute to the Ultimate Breaks and Beats series, the original sampled breaks collection. We hope you enjoy!
