Breaking down!

Breaks and samples unmasked: a collection of originals covers and (much) sampled tracks, the whole she-bang in one mix. And be warned: there’s a little bit of humour in it too. Music is not always a serious matter (well, at least not in my point of view). The song from the beautifully singing Jones Girls can be found on great new compilation, called Gimme A Break, which inspired me in a way to make this mix. Another source of inspiration was Mayer Hawthorne's Soul With A Hole Vol. 1. I have a signed copy of it, which I'm very proud of! The track by the Odells is on this excellent mix-album as well.

The picture is from Xenon Pulse.
