Shame on me!
I’ve been sitting on some sweet breakcore but didn’t find the time to share the awesome with you. So here it is, in a triple dose (sort of) to make it all dandy again.
The Dutch breakcore.nl site has brought out various breakcore releases at regular intervals, like their Themeless album series featuring lots of new breakcore talent. The range of breakcore variation on this albums is so that you’ll always find something you like in those high quality tracks.
Dowload Themeless 5 and check it out for yourself.
A second release on breakcore.nl worth checking out is the free EP called Midnight Notes released by WSicko, who’s runs the forum & label if I’m not mistaken.
The album has 5 high energy tracks which combine classical music with gabber and jungle beats. You know, that stuff that’s pretty common in breakcore. Good stuff, somewhere in the range of The Teknoist if you ask me, so download it or listen to it on bandcamp.
The third one is another goody coming from z999 and is called Distorted By Design. Breakcory jungle breaks mixed up with melodic classical bits and pieces with a nice distortion sauce on top. Best served loud.

It’s been a while since I posted a breakcore mix or live set here, but this post will certainly make up for that. After the jump you’ll find a huge list of breakcore/raggacore/jungle/dnb mixes and live sets from lots of well-known and some lesser known names in the scene.
The sets aren’t the most recent, but hey, who cares if you can get hours and hours of free breakcore mp3’s to stuff your pods and players with. On the list you’ll find sets from Aaron Spectre, Abelcain, Baseck, Bong-Ra, C64, Cutups, Diskore, Donna Summer, Doormouse, Dustrickx, Droon, FFF, Hecate, Larvae, Mark N, Parasite, Paul Blackout, Producer Snafu, Rotator, Sickboy, Xanopticon and many many more.
Yes. That name dropping is mainly to pull in some Google hits on the topic. Cause I just want to share this with all you breakcore lovers out there. I’m that nice indeed.
You can start your downloading frenzy right here.

Darkmatter soundsystem apparently exist 10 years now, which is great! Known for pimping the harder kind of electronic music they also threw a party and thanks to the awesomeness of the internet we can enjoy some of the sets thrown there. Here’s one you can actually download in AIFF format. Why? I have no idea. mp3 would be handier, but at least you’re getting a high quality audio file oslt. Anyway, get the Minion & Resurrector set and enjoy that awesome intro tune they use. Lulz.
There’s also a Somatic Responses set there, but unfortunately that’s up for streaming only.
Time to share some links to awesome and free musical resources to charge those iPods and mp3 players with. Here’s what landed in my inbox recently or flew across my twitter stream.
- Cogent is celebrating the first birthday of his Slugplates dubstep label with the release of a free EP. The release contains 2 free tracks of which Karki Kid is definitely my favourite. If you’re digging this, check out this earlier dubstep set as well.
- Do you know Hexstatic? I saw this guy once at the Belgian Beach Rock festival on a Ninja Tune night and he blew my socks off. His tunes could be described as breakbeat electro with a good dose of humour mixed in. The live shows are very much about the combination of their beats and visual. Their latest Scan Me EP is freely downloadable so go and check them out to get a taste of those beats.
- Enough of the slow stuff? Well The DJ Producer has some more speedy beats for you at Soundcloud. If you’re feeling like blasting some of those industrial hardcore techno kicks through your speakers or earplugs, I recommend his DJ set from the Glade Festival. If you still wan the slow stuff however, he also has a retro electro set up for download. Not something you’d expect from this lad I’d say.

Recently I got a request in one of the older posts containing a broken link to an awesome dubstep mix, asking if I could re-upload the mp3 somewhere. I checked some other older posts and noticed some of them are still getting frequent hits, but the links stopped working a long time ago. So I decided to put that gig of Google Docs space to some good use and re-upload some of those popular mixes which I still have around on my hard drive.
So far, the following posts have had their links replenished:
So if you’re hitting a post here containing some breakcore, dubstep, jungle, drum’n’bass, IDM or whatever with a link that appears to be broken, post a comment and I’ll see what I can do!
