  • B boy jams

    Somehow (dont ask) I might be djing at a b boy throwdown in a month or so.

    Now I've never ever played to breakers before and I know there are some top rockers out there who might be able to suggest some gems.

    I'll start with apache and the mexican.



    Ive got quite a few strictly b-boy breaks records - basically apache looped up with monster beats underneath it. But I wouldn't mind some funky jams in there too...

            2 copies of &#39;Catch a Groove&#39; by Juice is all you need&#33;

            or there&#39;s that Grandmaster Flash &#39;Apache&#39; 12 which came out as a promo - he cuts up two copies and turns it into a 10 min break.

              ThereÂ’s a difficulty balance to strike as no matter how good the classics are (apache/give it up/Mexican/etc.) most bboys will tell you that they are now bored of hearing these in the circles.
              I tend to prefer some ‘fast-rap’ these days as there’s just so much to choose from, the tempos are high and they are usually based around the classics anyway.
              I guess you have some good library shit that you could drop too.
              Take a few copies of the UBBÂ’s as a backup.

                I still have those &#39;the break&#39;s comps that came out on strut. the dj pogo and cutmaster swift ones.

                my doubling is utter crap. I&#39;ll start by juggling funky nassau. hehe.

                          Quite an obvious one but Jimmy Castor Bunch &quot;It&#39;s Just Begun&quot; would work, or is this too obvious?
                          I&#39;m just an addict, addicted to music, maybe it&#39;s a habit, I gotta use it

                            Edan’s ‘Fast Rap’ CD is representative of the sound I think works in bboy circles, so yeah just burn a copy press play and pretend to DJ.

                            I think the key to a good bboy set is play a couple of classics (its just begun/give it up/the Mexican etc), a few fast rap 12”s with a couple of more obscure funk/break records thrown into the mix.

                            I think some old school UK hip hop would work well, Iv played a couple of Kold Sweat releases before some of the beats are hype as hell shame the rapping was so poor.
