9.BLITZ (KUTLURA BREAKZ)
Favourite Track: HALOBEATZ feat.CURLY LOOPS-infected Ballerium (Original Mix)
Comments: This tune have a lot of good vibes for make a great smile in the breaks scene, scene that every day is still darker, but with big releases like this will come back some light to the breaks. This tune have all for for stay in my sets a long time!!
Blitz (Kultura Breakz) ....Spain....
10.MOBIUS (FLEXTONE RECORDS, APE MUSIC, DUSTED BREAKS, NSB RADIO)
Original mix is my favourite here, quirky, bouncy and funky this one's a lot of fun. Will White mix is also quite cool with a bit of an oldskool flavour.
11.HIHAT (IBREAKS FUNK, BRAP FM)
Hope your good :)
Nice progression on the Scientifics rmx. Not the sort of thing I play but nice chilled out vibe! Quite deep chords in there. I quite liked the Sifter & Adan rmx too, but think the production could do with tightening up a bit.
Keep em coming!
12.KULTUR (IBREAKS FUNK, KULTURA BREAKZ)
Hola Greg ...
Favourite Track : HALO BEATZ feat CURLY LOOPS : Infected Ballerium

13.KICKFLIP (FAT!, EN:VISION, BRIGHTON BREAKS)
Will White mix isn't bad as a warm up track, but not massively grabbed
by this release I'm afraid!
14.TRIPLE AGENT (V.I.M.BREAKS, RIDICULOUD RECORDS)
thanks for the promo
the original is a nice mechanical groover!
15.DJ FACE (ENTROPY SESSIONS, BIJOU BREAKS REVIEWER)
great release, my man!
love them all and will be using the will white remix and the original.
The unique lineup of artists on this release prompted me to give a listen and share my thoughts right away. And the verdict? Another quality VIM release, no doubt.
Cologne's boy wonder takes on his third release for VIM, this time in cahoots with France's Curly Loops. I had to listen to this one about five times before being able to pin down its sound. Thick, phat breaks, distorted bass stabs, and a trancey synth melody make for quite a treat. Lightly sprinkled female vocal samples, a flurry of otherworldly effects, and the faintest of pads round out the aural candy that is Infected Ballerium.
Formerly one-half of late-90s big beat legends Propellerheads, Will White went on to produce some killer breaks tunes in the noughties (Wait A Minute, for one) under his own name, as well as under the Pimpwax guise. For a while it seemed as though he'd fallen off the face of the earth. But with his recent release on Dead Famous and now this beast set to be unleashed, are we witnessing a comeback? Let's hope so. White's old-school-inspired remix of Infected Ballerium, while having little to do with the original save for the female vocal sample, is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This party animal of a tune adds a funky male vocal sample, along with a few signature old-school sounds, to give it an overall electro-breaks feel. My only complaint is that it should just be released as its own tune!
Sifter & Adan Remix
Another outfit we haven't seen much from in recent years is Sifter & Adan, but they, too, seem to be back in the game. The duo were known previously for their deep bass and this reworking is no exception. It's a short, laid back breakbeat affair that maintains the original's main synth hook with a little added distortion. Though funky all the way and heavy on the bass, this remix somehow maintains air of chill-ness.
The Scientifics Remix
Greek trio The Scientifics--the men behind the VIM imprint--round out the package with a warm tech-house ditty. A live bassline, and proggy synths accompany the original's melody and vocal sample ("music is my medication"). This 4/4 reworking is out just in time for the summer festival season and is sure to get you grooving.
16.SCAPO (DIRTY DROP RECORDS, V.I.M.BREAKS)
thx 4 this, i think i'll playing as intro on my next sets the SCIENTIFICS
version, old school sounds with a cool groove! thats the style!
17.STEVE MACCABE (TECH-FUNK SESSIONS ON NSB RADIO, V.I.M.BREAKS)
hi mate, cheers for sending these over
The Scientifics remix and the Will White remix, are my picks from the package, always been a fan of Will White's, tough yet funky sound, and this is a solid remix. The scientifcs remix is also very good, keeping the funkier feel of the original but taking the track into much more deep techno territory, really liking this.
18.LLUPA (DISC BREAKS WITH LLUPA ON NSB RADIO, WESTWAY, YELLOWFINGER COMMUNICATIONS)
Cheers for sending these my way. Digging the original out of the package, got a nice relentless groove to it, followed up by The Scientifics who take it on a deep 4/4 twist - very cool.
19.BEAT RANGERS (V.I.M.BREAKS, CHIPSOUND RECORDS)
thanks for the new single, nice release, my favorite is the WILL WHITE remix
Big up V.I.M. BREAKS.
20.RUNRIOT (WE ARE LIVE, APE MUSIC, SKINT RECORDS)
Thanks for this mate.
Nice oldskool chilled vibes on The Scientifics remix.
21.BOONOS (TITLE FIGHT RECORDS, XSSR MUSIC, RE:CONNECT RECORDS)
Nice E.P. Fav for me would definitely be The Scientifics Remix closely followed by the Will White Rmx.
22.GHETTFACE (RIDICULOUD RECORDS, SYSTEMATICA, DIGITAL SENSATION UK)
Will White mix all the way, love it
23.DANIELLA DAWNS (DEAD FAMOUS RECORDS LABEL MANAGER, NSB REVIEWER)
yeah im definitely going to give the will white one a play this weekend. i like the sifter & adan one too, but it's not really a dancefloor tune.
24.JOHN GRIEF (DEFINITION:BREAKS)
Many thanks for this...
My favourite on this package has to be the Will White remix - those sampled
breakbeats running underneath are wicked - and the bassline has enough bounce and switches to keep this remix driving on... great stuff.....The original mix is pretty good too - has a great feel to it.... Nice overall package.
25.T.R.O. (FURIOSO, CHIPSOUND RECORDS, DIGITAL SENSATION UK)
Thanks for the promo! I'm liking the summer vibes of the original.
26.CLAAS REIMER (V.I.M.BREAKS, WI:RE, DEFT KOMPOUNDZ)
Regarding the HALOBEATZ tracks i prefer the Will White rmx, i like the
Oldskool flava in it also the other tracks are good work.
