Babylon breaks: Dreadzone Soundsystem and Skool of Thought
So for our Valentines we couldn't resist bouncing around to the originators of dubwise breaks, Dreadzone Soundsystem at the inSpiral Lounge in Camden. Greg Dread was on the controls with MC Spee toasting to classic breaks, dubstep and old skool remixes with the occasional Dreadzone classic thrown in. Perfect lover's rock!
If you missed it, check out this set from Breaksday at Glade last year. Bring on the summer festies again!
Dreadzone + MC Spee + Earl 16 Live @ Glade Breaksday - 2008
Supporting Dreadzone was Liquid Djems, co-founder of Liquid Records and one third of the electro breaks phatness that is Atomic Drop. As well as some Brother Culture, dubstep and tunes from Liquid's latest down-tempo compilation Soul Vibrations 2, he picked up the pace with some tunes from Ed Solo & Skool of Thought. Their Random Acts of Kindness album was one of my favourites from last year - buy it here if you haven't got it!
