It’s Week 50 already – time for something new…and old. Or well, a combination of sorts.

Thanks to the dynamic duo, LP2 and Vincent The Soul Chef, we are happy to present the first installation of “4BB Breaks” – a series of mixtapes built solely on the best breaks in soul and funk music! On this “Vol. 1″ mixtape our resident DJ, LP2, got to choose favourites from Vincent’s vast collection of 7” singles.

Vincent, a long-time collector of them dusty vinyls with the big center-hole, ripped 80 of his darling 45’s – LP2 chose to go to work on 14 of these (probably saving some for the upcoming volumes)…and voila, we got ourselves a kick-ass, footstomping great start to the series. Clocking in just under 40 minutes, this is the perfect rush for any beathead…or seasoned soul music lover. Just glancing at the tracklisting, you’ll know this one’s a winner:

01: Soul Crusaders Orchestra “Pretty Lil’ Mama”
02: The Soulful Strings “Burning Spear”
03: Donald Austin “Crazy Legs”
04: The Delights Orchestra “Do Your Thing”
05: Jackie Lee “The Chicken”
06: Ramrods “Soul Express Pt.1”
07: Willie Mitchell “My Babe”
08: Tom Scott “Sneakin’ In The Back”
09: Wilson Pickett “Engine No. 9 Pt.1”
10: The Flaming Ember “Filet De Soul”
11: Margie Evans “Good Feeling”
12: BW Souls “Marvin’s Groove”
13: The Meters “Cissy Strut”
14: Clarence Carter “Devil Woman”

Here’s a tasty 3 minute preview for your listening pleasure:

While you listen, here’s a shameless plug for LP2 – and some info on Vincent:


We first got to know LP2 when participated in the 4BB Beat Logo competition in 2008 (and yeah, he won it…that’s why all our downloads includes his “4BB theme”). LP2 was also the mastermind behind the fantastic Phoenix – The Resurrection Mixtape – celebrating 4BB’s return to the blogosphere back in April. And I’m pretty sure you had LP2’s entries in the recent 4BB/Damn! Remix Competition among your favourites, right?! His rework of Damn!’s “Headstone” made it all the way to the finals, and is featured on the “Damn! Remix EP” – available for download right here! If you want more info on LP2, go visit his Myspace!

Vincent The Soul Chef really don’t need a formal introduction. Apart from being 4BB Weekly’s 7″ specialist (according to blog statistics, his much appreciated 7″ Sisters post back in Week 22 is still 4BB Weekly’s most visited page), he also runs a great blog of his own – the legendary Fufu Stew!


Basically, this is all you need to now to be sure this mixtape will rock your world – at least for about 40 minutes! :¬)

Big thanks to Vincent (for the hard work ripping all them 45’s) and DJ LP2 (for the mad skills) – helping “4BB Breaks” to a great start!

Without further ado, here’s 4BB Breaks Vol.1: These Are The Breaks! To ensure a great experience, make sure to set your speakers to “stun”!

See you all next week!


(Ps. Wow! Just need to share this with you all – Harry J. Elston, the founder of Friends Of Distinction, left us a comment the other day…thanking for the attention and the props, and that he’ll be following our weekly updates from now on: “Keep up the good work”! Now, how cool is that?!)

    • Hi, G!
      Are they banning Lix.in?
      That sounds weird…
      Ok, then we’ll just have to look for other ways to protect our links.
      Or just skip the protection, and hope for the best!
