2018 EU repressing on 20-track 2-LP vinyl set - BGP's top-selling Super Breaks series returns on the 30th Anniversary of the release of the first hip hop singles. The music captured on those early records [by the Sugarhill Gang and the Fatback Band among others] was the result of a street level culture that had grown up in the wasteland of 1970s Bronx that had spread throughout New York's black communities.
Inspired by the likes of DJ Kool Herc,Afrika Bambaatta, Grandmaster Flash and Charlie Chase, 'Super Breaks: Back To The Old School' gathers together some of the hottest tracks from those original block parties and pays homage to the early breaks compilations such as Paul Winley's 'Super Disco Breaks' and 'Original Breaks and Beats'.
They spread the message of the top DJs to a wider world of house parties and bedroom DJs by gathering up the most sought-after breaks and making them easily available. The clandestine nature of these releases gave them a glitter that added to the new music's aura, and 'Super Breaks' hopes to reflect this!)
