Week 53: Breaks Vol. 2

Welcome back, friends!

High time for the last post of 2009, right?! Week 53 is all about 4BB Breaks Volume 2 – the second installment in the 4BB Weekly mixtape series! Once again our house DJ, LP2, takes us all for a joyride – through jazzy breaks, solid dance floor heaters, old party favourites, more recent funk outbreaks, deep afro-funk and some soulful steppers…all in all, the perfect musical companion and party backdrop to any successful New Year’s celebration!

Just so you know, LP2 had to work extra hard to complete this mixtape, all because he managed to lose the Serato playlist and the original digital tracks (another computer mishap) used in the project…which resulted in LP2 pulling an all-niter to manually identify the 29 song titles and artists. After figuring out 28 of them, LP2 did the smart move of scrapping the 29th track – just to be able to deliver on time (and to get at least a couple of hours of sleep)!

So, just to spice things up a bit (y’all know we like to complicate things at least a little by now), and to honor LP2’s manual labour, we’ve decided NOT to just give up the 4BB Breaks Vol. 2 tracklisting. Why not end this old year and start the new 2010 with a competition?! How about we give you the mixtape tracklisting, but leave y’all with 5 blanks for you to figure out…and that you get no less than a week to figure them out? And just for the hell of it, how about us throwing in a nice prize to the first person who figures out all 5 and gets the tracklist completed?! :¬)

But before we get to the competition, the incomplete tracklisting and the nice prize, here’s a short preview snippet of 4BB Breaks Vol. 2: The Break Out (Pt. 1) – just to get the groove juices flowing:

Sounding good enough to end this old year, right?!

OK, here’s the tracklisting, or rather the partial tracklisting – it’s kinda clear where you have to guess what’s what…and we’ve set the level of trickiness to medium, so that y’all can partake! Check it out:

01. Ray Camacho & The Teardrops: Movin’ On
02. Aquarian Dream: Fantasy
03. The Black Exotics:Theme Of The Blackbyrds
04. Esperanto: Night Of The Wolf
05. The Bamboos: Tighten Up
06. ???
07. A Certain Ratio: Do The Du
08. Traks: Wild Safari
09. Rhythm Heritage: Sky’s The Limit
10. Muscle Shoals Horns: Open Up Your Heart
11. ???
12. Visions of Tomorrow: Galaxy
13. Kay-Gee’s: Tango Hustle
14. Roy Ayers Ubiquity: Cincinnati Growl
15. Aquarian Dream: You’re A Star
16. ???
17. Dennis Coffey: Theme From Black Belt Jones
18. Samba Soul: Chove Chuva/Mas Que Nada
19. Manu Dibango: African Battle
20. ???
21. Manzel: Space Funk
22. Johnny Pate: Shaft In Africa
23. J.J. Johnson: Parade Strut
24. War: Me And Baby Brother
25. LTD: Love To The World
26. ???
27. Dennis Coffey: The Sagittarian
28. Don Blackman: Heart’s Desire

Shouldn’t be that hard to figure out the missing songs/artists!

So, what about that fine prize for whoever figures this shit out first?! Well, how about a digital download from our favourite crate diggers/reissue wizards over at Numero Group…their latest release, Good God! Born Again Funk (NUM030) will be available real soon – and judging from the previews, it’s a stunning collection of awesomeness that at least I’m gonna be all over as soon as it drops! Now that’s what I call a nice prize!

Aight, friends…fair trade, right?! You get a great breaks mixtape, and I get 5 correct answers – and you could be the New Year’s Competition Winner! E-mail your completed tracklist here (it might be wise to put “Competition!” in the header, so I don’t miss it) – the first e-mail with the right answers win! Keep your fingers crossed that no one beats you to the punch!

Mad props to LP2 for yet another awesome mixtape – as always, 4BB salutes you! And stay tuned for a third 4BB Breaks installment in a near future!

Happy New Year!

Now hurry up and download this heater, crank up the volume and get that 2010 party started! And when you sober up, make sure to figure out those tracks and enter the competition!  :¬)


(Ps. Just so you know, you don’t have to worry about Soulbrotha, Arkane1, Vinnie or LP2 – they’re all disqualified from the competition! So, go ahead with your bad self, and get 2010 started on the good foot!)
