Breaking News ft Alaska MC


In Beat We Trust
Russian outfit Breaking News had their first release on Lady Waks’s fledgling label in 2010, ‘Ya Booty' with the Ragga Twins, and ‘Freeze’ shows how far they’ve come. Their booty breaks offerings are fresh n’ fly, with judicious use of an 808 and a stripped-down aesthetic. Spanish crew Mutantbreakz superbly utilise a guitar-filled intro that sounds like a grungey Nirvana album track with a bluesy backbeat, but then ruin it by the snippet of Alaska’s vocal they choose to focus on. Finally, Se7en Deadly Breaks add more burbling bass and a bit of extra synth work for an unremarkable overhaul.
