V/A - K-Def Presents: GIMME A BREAK! (7")
You asked and K-Def delivered. Gimme a break is a must-have 45 for DJs and Producers, whether used for sampling or scratching, this 7" is loaded with quality drums and sounds you'll be glad to have within arms reach. The veteran producer / crate-digger dug in his bag of tricks and curated a solid stack of rare and previously unattainable breakbeats for you. Veteran? Yes! The NJ native earned his stripes in the 90s working with the legendary Marley Marl at the infamous House of Hits. He continued to evolve his techniques over the years and developed a style of scratching and production that was critically acclaimed and influential on his peers. Notably K produced for a wide range of artists from Ghostface Killah and LOTUG, to LL Cool J, P Diddy, UGK and Damu The Fudgemunk. Needless to say when this man shares the tools of his trade, it's worth a listen. As a BONUS for all of the portable turntablists using Raiden Faders, Numark PT01s and the like, K even threw in 2 bonus scratch kits (collection of tried and true one shot phrases) for good measure.
