Bongra

Venetian Snares  "Rossz Csillag Alatt Született"
http://www.planet.mu/discography/ziq111

" Best breakcore album, and just in general one of my favourite albums. The whole concept, production, melodies and compositions are profoundly touching.

DJ Scud / Bloodclot Gangsta Youth "Kill or be Killed"
http://www.discogs.com/Bloodclaat-Gangsta-Youth-Kill-Or-Be-Killed/release/27304

" Anything by DJ Scud goes. Kill or Be Killed is a real favourite, played the Full Watts 1 release to death back in the early years.
Ambush was a forerunner of the scene with Zhark when it came to the early releases.

Jason Forrest "War Photographer"
http://www.discogs.com/Jason-Forrest-Shamelessly-Exciting/master/66627

" When it comes to mashing samples JF/DS is in the top league with the other heroes : Sickboy, Shitmat, etc. I chose this particular track because of the amazing clip and JF's love for Prog Rock, Cock Rock and all that this kitsch.

FFF "Junglist"

" Same as Scud, anything in the vast discography of Tommy goes. But i added the Clash release as its still a personal honour releasing FFF on Clash Records back in the day. "Junglist' is still a KILLER!

Enduser "Kelsey The Taxidermist"

" The first Enduser track i heard back in the late 90's or early 2000's.It hit me by surprise because i had no idea there were artists making similar stuff to my own. Basically as with FFF, Lynn's amazing discography says it all!

Jason Forrest
http://cockrockdisco.bandcamp.com/Jf

It will be hard for me to make a top 10 breakcore albums list because I know all of the producers on my list, and many of the albums I have also released and have helped release. But that said, here’s the records that clearly stand out to me:

Ove Naxx - "Bullets From Habikino City HxCx"
http://www.discogs.com/OVe-NaXx-Bullets-From-Habikino-City-HxCx/release/252156

" Ove Naxx was the first person that ever contacted me as a fan of my music, and I think I was one of the first people to hear his music too. We became friends and toured a few times together.  I love this album he did for Soot records - it’s surprisingly mature with so many genres and sounds bouncing around inside music that is as hard as it is complex.
And I’ll go ahead and announce it here, but Cock Rock Disco will be re-releasing this album in a few weeks!

End - "Sounds Of Disaster"
http://www.discogs.com/End-The-Sounds-Of-Disaster/master/26662

" End was probably one of the best producers who made something that sounded like Breakcore but probably “never was”. Or rather, like myself, End and I always really were interested in breakcore, but also just wanted to incorporate other sounds in our music. Regardless, this album rules, it’s full of fantastic beats, fantastic melodies, it’s fun, fun to dance too, and packed with brilliance.

Warst - "Tower of The Sun"
http://www.discogs.com/Warst-The-Tower-Of-The-Sun-ReEdit-2003/release/1642178

" The album that introduced me to J-core and also totally blew away what I thought Breakcore - or Gabber - cold be! Still mind blowing, hard, and ravetastic! When I first started playing these songs out to European audiences people WENT CRAZY! Ultra hard to find, so get out there and look!

Venetian Snares - "Shitfuckers"


" My favorite Venetian Snares album, and I own 2x copies of the 12” so I could DJ both sides at once. haha Sounds better to my ears than almost anything.

Dev/Null - "Lazer Thrash"
DOWNLOAD FREE: http://www.cockrockdisco.net/releases/physical/crock014-devnull-lazer-thrash/

" One of the albums I’m most proud to have had a hand in, this release took years of production to pull together, and I think that Dev/Null actually made something truly unique in this album that no one has ever made before or since!  For being full of the most chaotic break-mash that ever was, musically, this album holds together amazingly as a full-length album, and that (again) is a testament to the outside influence Dev/Null quotes as a musician.
And best of all - IT IS NOW FREE! So go download it and have your mind blown once again!!

Drumcorps - "Grist"

" Aaron is a great friend and we toured Japan for Murder Channel years ago. This is another record that I helped release and it’s just fantastic. He became quite famous for it and he deserves every bit of praise for it. It fucked ROCKS!

Shitmat ‎– "Hang The DJ"
http://www.discogs.com/Shitmat-Hang-The-DJ/master/44050

" Shitmat is a fucking legend and this album is just one of the many, many reasons why. Henry is such an amazing guy and especially super funny, but I think people forget that he’s just extremely clever too. He singlehandedly re-defined what a mash-up was and turned it into “mashcore” along with his friends in Wrong Music.

Duran Duran Duran - "Very Pleasure"
DOWNLOAD FREE: http://www.cockrockdisco.net/releases/physical/crock001-duran-duran-duran-very-pleasure/

" I started Cock Rock Disco in order to release this album, and I neither of us realized that it would be such a big album in the scene. Duran Duran Duran is and one of my best friends and I have literally 1 million stories about this guy, haha.   
But musically this album is just full of surprises. Yes, it’s the quintessential breakcore album, but it also has a really natural flow to it, as the harder songs are supported by the softer ones, and - whoops - watch out for the “sound of blow-job” track! haha! It’s just perfect!

Christoph De Babalon ‎– "If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It"
http://www.discogs.com/Christoph-De-Babalon-If-Youre-Into-It-Im-Out-Of-It/master/44823

" Another fantastic album that uniquely mixed dark, ambient sounds capes with blistering beats and bass. There’s just nothing else like it. And what’s more, it’s epitomises a certain non-conformist “fuck-you” attitude that is so prevalent with the genre that I might even call it a political statement.

…Wait, maybe I need to get “If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It” tattooed on my chest…

Lady Scraper - "The Death Of Mary Poppins"
DOWNLOAD FREE: http://www.cockrockdisco.net/releases/digital/crockp3-003/

" There are times when you hear someone make music and you realize they have re-defined what is possible. Wayne (aka Ladyscraper) did that at a show we threw in Berlin and I quickly came up to him and was like, “yeah, you should make a release on CRD” after he was done, and the result is THIS ALBUM!  And that’s what I love about this album, because it’s not really breakcore and it’s not really gabber - it’s this recombination of brutally hard sounds between the two and THAT is why it deserves to be in the top breaker albums.
THIS ONE IS ALSO FREE - DOWNLOAD IT NOW!

Alec Empire / Death Funk ‎– "Funk Riot Beat"

" I met Alec Empire twice and was not impressed by him as a person but he helped define my musical tastes so I will always owe him for that. This album is one of my absolute favorites and it’s hard as fuck. I bought it on 12” when it came out and it completely confused me at the time. 1 song might be fast and sloppy amen breaks, the next just digital noise, then next over-distorted hip hop. it’s GREAT!

Hrvatski ‎– "Swarm & Dither"
http://www.planet.mu/discography/ZIQ026

" Hrvatski is another guy that I owe massively for helping me when I was just getting started, and he is a heck of a guy. His album “Swarm And Dither” was a very big release in the scene for Planet Mu at the time and is brilliant all the way through.  Time and again he has proven himself to be a genius and listening to this album is an exercise in what it’s like to have an encyclopedic knowledge of experimental music.  It is full of great beats, great samples, and is just so iconic that it is more than a collection of tunes - it’s a complex portrait of the thoughts of the a great man.

1278033_541963419204746_1440323864_

A selection of some of my favorite breakcore releases, incomplete and in no particular order.

Kovert- "Shock Effekt (Praxis 34)"
http://www.discogs.com/Kovert-Shock-Effect/release/36503

" This is maybe the purest and most accurate record when it comes to describe breakcore. Perfect rolling breakbeat constructions an overall menacing dark feel, a lot of noise and a concept behind the whole 12". http://criticalnoise.net/fragments.html

Christoph Fringeli & DJ Scud – "Bodysnatcher (Ambush 06)"
http://www.discogs.com/DJ-Scud-Christoph-Fringeli-Bodysnatcher/release/25261

" Cold and haunting as the movie that gave the record its name, the definition of Shrillstep. perverted techstep beats mixed with feedback harsh noise and subbase that make the basement shake. Sheer anarchy.

DIN – "New Stuff From Blue Crystal Studios"
http://www.discogs.com/Din-New-Stuff-From-Blue-Crystal-Studios/release/454747

" A great tape from 1997, full of noise breaks and jungle loops that follow no rule or format. Completly uncompromiseless and harsh. Some of the tracks where later released on Ambush 07.

Venetian Snares – "Shitfuckers!!! (Dyslexic Response 07)"
http://www.discogs.com/Venetian-Snares-Shitfuckers/release/32807

" This records has little to do with the stuff he released in later years. Its worth to mention this rude & brute bulldozer- like 12" because it comes without the later technical shenanigans and a somehow careless and light feel in it.

Ślepcy – "And Again (Ambush 11)"
http://www.discogs.com/%C5%9Alepcy-And-Again/release/25263

" One of the most compromisless releases in existence, Ślepcy from poland show no mercy on this 12" and floor everything. Ultrafast harsh breakbeats mixed with disdurbing noise collages, its a total orgy of extremes without sounding ridiculous or dull, but euphoric and frightning at the same time.

Aphasic – "Bass & Superstructure (Ambush 9)"
http://www.discogs.com/Aphasic-Bass-Superstructure/release/25259

" Frantic mixture of bone dry breakbeats,harsh feedback noise & bass. Together with Scud & Rich Kids Ambush 10 and the Snares Man 7" on Hotf, This Brutal Soundclash can be seen  as one of the precursors to the later raggacore hype. Remains unmatched.

Scud & Nomex  -  "Total Destruction (Maschinenbau 2)"
http://www.discogs.com/Scud--Nomex-Total-Destruction/release/223755

" DJ Scud from Ambush and Nomex from Adverse teamed up again for this now classic breakcore/noise orgy, for one of the most iconic tracks from this era. Amiga 1200 highspeed jungle breaks mixed with skateboard noise, dubby echo, harsh feedbacks and General Bailey vocals in between. Listen dj, listen carefully!

Shizuo – "Shizuo vs. Shizor (DHR LP7)"
http://www.discogs.com/Shizuo-Shizuo-Vs-Shizor/release/180668

" One of the most interesting artists on Digital Hardcore Rec. with his full length album. Unpredictable,punkish harsh and funky proto breakcore filled with numerous little ideas and details that gives a good idea of the possible diversity in this "non-genre". He was the man.

Christoph De Babalon  -  "If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It  (DHR LP8)"
http://www.discogs.com/Christoph-De-Babalon-If-Youre-Into-It-Im-Out-Of-It/release/25243

" Never sounded melancholy better than on this record. It starts with an epic 15 minutes long Ambient track called "Opium" and goes on with experimental drum & bass and jungle and more dark soundscapes with a serious cold atmosphere. Gothic Jungle as CDB called it in this mix https://soundcloud.com/christoph-de-babalon/back-in-the-gothic-jungle

Society Of Unknowns – "Society Of Unknowns (Praxis 24)"
http://www.discogs.com/Society-Of-Unknowns-Society-Of-Unknowns/release/98381

" Breakbeat constructs in the vein of Ambush 1 and 2 and Praxis 27(also important records that are unfortunatly not reviewed in this list), spooky modular noises and deep basslines, put together to an massive experimental breakcore 12" with this specific funk that you could find on some of the best releases from this time.

CPU War vs Pisstank  -  "Koolpop Trash Series Vol.1 (kool.POP ‎– POP12.004)"
http://www.discogs.com/CPUWAR-vs-Pisstank-Kool-Pop-Trash-Series-Vol-1/release/32709

" CPU War with some cheap harsh and indeed trashy breakcore, some of there better tracks beside the "Live Vancouver 2005" cdr. The better side for me is from Pisstank, owner of Irrirant Records, 8 totally punk-as-fuck highspeed tracks, rough and ruthless, straight to the point tunes that are perfectly accompanied by his split 7"s with lesser and kid 606.

Amputate "1-4"
http://www.discogs.com/label/14161-Amputate

" Another Label from London with 4 12"s full of rocking harsh Amiga-breakcore sometimes mixed with industrial hardcore and drum & bass produced by Photic Driver, Anaphylactic Shock, Scrot and Elastic Horizons. Some related labels are  Psywarp and Prone.

Dan H/Christoph Fringeli  "(New Skin 1)"
http://www.discogs.com/Dan-H-Christoph-Fringeli-New-Skin-01/release/214408

Hekate "(New Skin 2)"
http://www.discogs.com/Hekate-I-Hate-Flesh-EP/release/98396 

" The first two New Skin 12" with extremly cold and abrasive and complex breakbeats from Dan Hekate of the Hekate Soundsystem from london. accompanied by CFs expiremental hardcore subbass & broken beats.

Mwarf  "(Ambush 5)"
http://www.discogs.com/Mwarf-Sex-With-A-Machine/release/113262

" Mwarf is another alias of Dan Hekate and here he goes on with the relentless broken beats and disturbed dark jungle. Brutal funk.

DJ Balli & Mu B  -  "Serious And Comical Investigations At Around 333 (Sonic Belligeranza 01)"
http://www.discogs.com/DJ-Balli-Mu-B-Serious-And-Comical-Investigations-At-Around-333-bpm/release/212754

" DJ Balli, the man behind Sonic Belligeranza with the first of many concept releases this label. Here you find tracks with a duration of 3 minutes 33 seconds, intertracks duration 33 seconds 3 cents of a second, all frequencies cut at 33.3 hertz, beats reaching the peak of 333 bpm,  and of course at 33 ⅓ rpm. Unformatted experimental speedcore and breakcore, full of challenging breaks, cuts and noises.

Noize Creator – "The Future Is Cancelled (Praxis  51)"
http://www.discogs.com/Noize-Creator-The-Future-Is-Cancelled/release/4957146

" NC with his trademark crystal clear rapid fire breaks,haunting breakdowns with dark movie-score like synths and bass that prove that its possible to produce breakcore like this without slide off into soulless sounddesign boredom. "You Are Going Down"

Venetian Snares – The Chocolate Wheelchair Album
http://www.planet.mu/discography/ZIQ077
This release from 2003 is in my personnal taste in music one the best from Aaron Funk Venetian Snares project. It is very diversified, completly crazy and frantic and still extremly energic. Jazz / Noise / Speedcore / Mash-up / IDM, you can find anything in this album. «  Herbie Goes Ballistic  » is my favorite track of all for the brain melting time stretched rythm that seems to come from multiple universes in the same time  !

Various Artist [Mutant Snipper / Peace Off] – Invasion From the XXX Dimension

I can't speak of my favorite Breakcore releases without mentioning Peace Off Records of course. With this Mutant Snipper 3 vinyls I think the label released on of the best compilation ever released in the Breakcore scene. With major artist like the already mentioned Venetian Snares and other great name like Doormouse, Duran Duran Duran, Xanopticon, Otto Von Schirach and all the Peace Off crew (Electric Kettle, Rotator, Krumble & Electromeca) droping super twisted and dark tracks. A «  Buy or Die  !!!!  » fine exemple.

Igorrr – Hallelujah

After more quiet and experimental debut Igorrr started to be one of the most incredible producer of the scene with his album Nostril, but the next one Hallelujah is what we should call a masterpiece. It even sound «  accessible  » as he mix his Black Metal, Baroque and Hard Electronic influences in the same track with a clear taste for humour and real instrument and singers recording of an amazing quality. Future classic (or maybe it is already)

Kid606 – Kill Sound Before It Kills You
https://itunes.apple.com/jp/album/kill-sound-before-sound-kills/id65696482
I keep listenning to this album every month since more than 7 years (when I discovered it) and I still love it like the first day. It is super energic, all tracks are pure banger oscilating between Jungle, Acid and more violent 4/4 hardcore beat but with a super punk feeling of «  I do what I want because I like it, go fuck yourself  !!!!!  ». It is also one of the most accessible work of the man, so efficient that even my friend who are not in the hard music love it anyway.

Bong-Ra – Warrior Sound

The first song of this Cd compilation of Bong-Ra way my discover of the whole Breakcore scene, I guess that's why I love it so much. I was more into Metal music at the time I discovered Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and all the Jungle / Idm scene and this Bong-Ra release was the first real «  Breakcore  » labeled thing I heard. Even years after you can still see me walking the streets with my headphones on singing «  Oooohooohooooooouuu We gonna Murder You  »  !!!!

Nicolas Chevreux / Ad Noiseam

Nicolaschevreux_2

Cdatakill - Nina milla meta


Cdatatakill was one of the first American musician to write breakcore. His mixture of cut up drum'n'bass, very dry beats and dark atmosphere is something which people do not do much anymore, but is for me the truest possible kind of breakcore.

Enduser - Switch Any "best of breakcore" list must contain this track. It is fun without being stupid, accessible but still original, and an absolute treat. If there is anything such as a "breakcore club classic", this is it.

Igorrr - Cicadidae Igorrr is by far the best known breakcore musician at the moment. His technicality, originality and (again) ability to integrate clever humor into his tracks are making a big difference. "Cicadidae" is not his best known track, but I really enjoy how it is a bit more emotional, a bit more laid back than the rest, while staying at heart a breakcore track.

Drumcorps - Grist Many artists are mixing breakcore with metal, but very few are actually good at both. Drumcorps's debut album took the scene by storm, and rightfully so. Aaron Spectre knows his beats and his riffs, and respects both scenes.

The Teknoist - 32 Days I am not a big fan of straight hardcore music, and I think that most attempts at mixing breakcore and hardcore are not working very well. The Teknoist is one of the very few exceptions. His material is powerful,very hard, but also intelligent and deep.

Bloodclaat Gangsta Youth - Kill Or Be Killed [Full Watts 1]
http://www.discogs.com/Bloodclaat-Gangsta-Youth-Kill-Or-Be-Killed/release/27304
For me this is the ultimate raggacore track, many times copied but nothing comes close to the energy of this one!!! (btw I easily could've filled this list with DJ Scud tunes only!)

Heinrich At Hart - Breack [Position Chrome - PC 33]
http://www.discogs.com/Heinrich-At-Hart-Heinrich-At-Hart/release/236885
One of my favourite Heinrich At Hart tracks. Played this track so many times it never left my dj bag. The reese, the melody line and those distorted amens always works for me! But to be honest the whole self titled album is amazing!! I was so happy to hear that Heinrich At Hart started making music again a few years ago! Make sure to check his new stuff under the names Goner and Bolder (together with Pure).

Christoph Fringeli & DJ Pure - Anti-Christ / A.C. [SUB/VERSION 002]
http://www.discogs.com/Christoph-Fringeli-DJ-Pure-Anti-Christ-AC/release/27017
I love all those distorted techstep releases from the late 90's. This one is so dark it's apocalyptic drum & bass at it's finest. I truly miss this sound nowadays!! Also check out the other Christoph Fringeli & DJ Pure collab releases (SUB/VERSION 001,004) And while you're at it check the complete Praxis output too. Essential listening!

!asq! - Dead Rider [History Of The Future     HOT008]
http://www.discogs.com/aSq-Psychosis-Prophylaxis/release/194697
This one still gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it. Got played so often at the "Breakcore a GoGo" parties. Same counts for the "PCP Dui" track that opens the ep!

Patric Catani - Stop Bothering Me [Spite SP 666-05]
http://www.discogs.com/Patric-Catani-Harmdasher/release/26955
Another artist I could make a seperate list for since he released so many great records in many diverse styles (but they all have that recognisable "Patric Cremer" groove). I picked this track from his "Harmdasher" ep cause it's just so energetic, a distorted wildly edited amen tearout combined with a melody that sounds like it could easily be from his (amazing) "The Horrible Plans Of Flex Busterman" album. A non stop rush!!

Christoph De Babalon - Cum On (Feel This) [FatCat Records 12FAT020]
http://www.discogs.com/Christoph-De-Babalon-Kid606-Split-Series-10/release/13028
Speaking of amen tearouts!! Another one that didn't leave my bag back in the day. The way that amen kicks in is just magical!! So much fun to play this tune and see all the confused faces when the middlepart comes in ;) Make sure to check out his "If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It" album too which is also a masterpiece!!

Edge Of Motion - PG. 300 [DJAX-UP-147]
http://www.discogs.com/Edge-Of-Motion-Motionz-Beyond/release/4587
This is probably the 1st record that got me interested in distorted electronic music, love this record so much. Played it a lot (on 45 rpm that is). Such an underated record. Usually only their track "Set Up 707"  gets played but this is THE track for me!

GORE TECH (Murder Channel / Ad Noiseam / Peace Off / Prspct)

Goretechbaroegrotterdam

Upon a rainy day here in Manchester I receive an email from my Japanese friend Ume over at Murder Channel, with a seemingly simple request; to create a list in honour of the 10th anniversary of this formidable label. The request to create a list of my top 5 breakcore tracks of all time. "TOP 5", I thought! But...but there is so many great tunes to mention 5 is such a small number.

So I replied, "is 10 OK?"

With Ume creating a top 50 albums list weeks earlier, I set to work! So here it is, with too many great classic tracks to mention, this was going to be the most heart wrenching piece of journalism

I'd ever have to do, but, here goes!

10. Shitmat - You be Virgil and I'll be Ted Dibiase
I first heard this on a CDR handed to my friends at Marionette Records in 2004 following a Glade stage take over in the UK, this was the second track on the EP a black and white photocopied sleeve with "Now that's what I call wrong music on it" this CD got rinsed everywhere we went we
took it with us. Growing up in council estates in the north of England, Bonkers Hardcore compilation cassette tapes where what "the kids" would listen too, when I first heard the likes of Shitmat and Oen Flux I just knew things would never be the same again for Hardcore.

9. Oen Flux - Cut With A Chizel

Another track from the same CDR. this track just blew us all away we'd play this at every Doom Night (Mood Basement Buxton) we'd loose our shit. Very much verging on straight early UK Hardcore, amongst many awesome tracks Oen Flux did this is still one of my favourite tracks of all time, it's bleak, it's aggressive and it's unrelenting. It contained all the correct ingredients for a monster track, the main vocal hook is taken from a Ludacris acappella, I later used this same acappella in "Hammers of Blasphemy" but still hasn't come close to how well it's used in this track. 

8. Bong-Ra - 666mph
This tune, honestly changed it for me, an incredible mix of hip hop, Jungle and crushing blues-like guitar, then a main guitar hook that was just pure and deep. I think the driving cowbell in this track mixed with the scratching was quite unique for it's time. This track showed a very young Gore Tech what was possible in the world of electronic music. Cut to an awesome video mashup of Bikini Bandits this was even shown on MTV late at night in Holland. I was blessed to be asked to remix this for the 2014 remake of the EP it was an honour.

7. Doormouse - Skelechairs (Venetian Snares Remix)
No introduction required, get it heard! complete with macabre Texas Chainsaw Massacre samples and montoruous kick drums and breakbeats it's a sure fire stomper in the dance!

6. Enduser - Shotgun Anthem
http://www.discogs.com/Enduser-Maintream-Mutual-Obligation-EP/release/575698
Now this was a tough one for me, I'm sure I could even make a top 10 based just on Enduser's music alone, I mean, Switch, End of The Beginning, Glock Dub, There was a period in about 2005/6 where every tune I heard and loved at the raves seemed to be and Enduser track, When Nicolas and I played our Vinyl sets in Berlin this year Enduser featured heavily in our selections. I heard this first being played as part of Aaron Spectre's Berlin mix which for a long time never left my MP3 player.   

5. Tim Exile - The Devil's Chimney

Now it's debatable that this one could in fact be DnB (if you actually give a fuck about genres) it was very rolling drum and bass in it's structure, and Exile as he was then known would play shows with the likes of Bailey, Lemon D and Valve Sound system in London, however this track from his Pro Agonist EP on Planet Mu was certainly very breakcore in it's glitches, strange pads and dark subject matter, the words "the devil's in exile, exile is in the devil,.....sleep tight" will haunt me forever, This track was mixed regularly into my sets way back with "Big Bad Purple Badboy" taken from the same album, fun fact I once created a bootleg remix of this track (never released so don't bother looking) what Tim said he liked. Mike Teknoist and I went to see him play the Berghain the weekend I moved to Berlin, he's still got a "if it aint broke, break it" attitude in his performances.

4. Player - Angel of Theft
http://www.discogs.com/Player-Angel-Of-Theft/release/245068
This tune, it as much haunts me as it does comfort me, it's a classic, another track I heard featuring heavily in the Aaron Spectre live mixes, I was in Germany in 2006 in a hotel where I first saw the iconic pentagram vinyl sticker and the re-appropriated Slayer logo. Rumour has it this is actually a bootleg created by non-other than Amon Tobin, Fun fact: When I went to Holland to play PRSPCT XL 17 the day before I flew the tragic news came to light that Jeff Hanneman founding member and guitarist of Slayer has passed away. But in honour of this awesome band almost all the producers and DJ's played this track in their sets. Great tune, Good luck ever finding the 12" though. If you do, Tell me first.

3. Rotator - Jump da fuck up
Dancehall, DANCEHALL! What!, This is new to me, a young an inexperienced producer, it changed everything, it stays with me even today when I write music, this amongst many more tracks by this formidable  gabbertronic, 2 step king will stay with me. This guy (whether he knew it or not, perhaps the later knowing Frank) awoke something in many of us, like all of the producers above he managed to take something, and fuse it into something more sinister, darker or almost totally upside down by taking rhythms like this, and sounds like that, made for something fresh and unique. Their are of course so many great tracks by Rotator but this one sticks out for me.

2. Broke Note - The Fury
Now, This track, again very debatable as to what you can consider the actual "genre" but at 175 BPM and very Drum and Bass orientated it works for both Drum and Bass and Breakcore, What strikes me as most awesome about this track (and subsequently many other Broken Note tracks) is the attention to detail. a very long and suspenseful intro layering on more and more elements and false starts that when it finally breaks out and the immortal "Bring on the Chaos" is heard, all hell breaks loose, the track is quite long in length and never really seems to repeat, I've been listening to Terminal Static closely for many years and still hear new sections and parts I didn't hear before. 

1. Aaron Spectre - Look Out Fi Liar
A little more mellow perhaps in comparison, but this is certainly one of the most timeless breakcore anthems, complete with anti-war dub ragga acappella and some of the most complex  and imaginative drum work I've heard, this amongst many of Aaron's tracks stands out above all as having some of the most unique styles of analog style glitching compliment the Ragga, Dancehall style of music.

These aren't necessary  a countdown in order of what I think is better, they're equally as notable as each other, If I had the time I'd love to create a top 100, maybe one day, additionally this simply scratches the surface of what is out there, here is a list of notable

producers that certainly deserve a mention,

Krumble, DJ Donna Summer, Duran Duran Duran, Droon, Sickboy, DJ Scud, Eustachian, Jahba,  Le Jad. Monster X, FFF, DJ Scotch Egg, Ove-NaXx  and that's not to mention all of the other
countless producers that lay the ground work before this generation of breakcore circa 2002 - 2010.

Notable labels, Death$ucker, Wrong Music, Ad Noiseam,  Noize-Tek, Marionette Records, Kriss, 
also check out forums such as Ih8breakcore and breakcore.nl for more communities.   

This concludes my list, Some obvious, some even seemingly generic but all honest, doing the research for this brought back many memories of the scene in general, the parties and times I've shared with the mentioned artists and a really great opportunity to relisten to some awesome tunes,

And remember, if it ain't broke, break it!

George, Gore Tech
