Venetian Snares "Rossz Csillag Alatt Született"
" 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"
" 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"
" 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.
" 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!
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"
" 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"
" 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"
" 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"
" 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"
" 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"
" 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.
A selection of some of my favorite breakcore releases, incomplete and in no particular order.
Kovert- "Shock Effekt (Praxis 34)"
" 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)"
" 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"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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.
" 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)"
Hekate "(New Skin 2)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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)"
" 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"
