About Sushi Breaks
7″ Break records are being released at an astounding rate. Yet most of the sounds and samples used are just the same recycled material from the last dozen break albums. This leaves the DJ who is looking for new material to create with, disappointed. That is…until the arrival of Grime-n & Starfunkle’s Sushi Breaks, a 7″ break record that is the compilation of a decade’s worth of crate digging, sampling and beat making. Sushi Breaks is chock full of original sounds and samples not used on previous break albums, plus original sounds from one of hip hop’s legendary emcees and producers, Fab Five Freddy. This gives the DJ a whole new tool box of scratch to paint their sound canvas with. Sushi Breaks also features all new beats for scratching and juggling with, produced by an international array of renowned hip hop producers. Pressed at maximum groove depths, each scratch track features 30 seconds of skipless samples allowing for endless scratch techniques on your turntable or portable, keeping your scratches and your game always in the groove.
