About

In a genre which is all too often full of urban clichés, The Breaks Collective bring a refreshing take on Hip Hop to the table, taking inspiration from many styles of music including jazz, rap, hip-hop, funk, soul, rock and R&B to name a few; despite this wide range of influences the seven members knit melodies, beats and lyrics together to create unique musical and poetical flavor. The Breaks' musical ability enable them to keep the audience entertained with spontaneous sets and freestyles.

And here's a little bit of history....

The Breaks Collective was a project born in 2005 when a local group of musicians collaborated in a series of 'jam' style gigs.

This group quickly formed into a band and produced 'Short Guy, Long Trousers' EP was recorded, followed by 'Broken' EP an then 'Finally' LP.

In 2012 they released 4 singles in aid of 2 national charities that gained them local media attention including 247 Magazine, 'BBC Radio Devon Feature' and a 'BBC Spotlight' feature (check out their YouTube page).

In their time they have played live supporting 'De La Soul' 'The Nextmen' ‘Toots and the Maytals’, Jazz legend ‘Courtney Pine’, ‘Gilles Peterson’, ‘The Pharcyde’ and ‘The Scratch Perverts’ to name a few. Headlined stages at ‘Gold Coast Ocean Fest‘ 'Aeon' festival, ‘Fat Face World Freestyle Mountainboard Champs' and played numerous other festivals including 'Electric Beach' near Newquay.

Future biog will include the release of the latest LP 'Audio Art' in early 2013, preceded by 3 singles in the run up to the LP release.
