New school breaks almost became a swear word in such a short time, after a great run with labels like Botchit & scarper, TCR & Marine Parade at the helm, alongside those responsible (Rennie Pilgrim, Adam freeland etc). Gervase Cook, one half of High Prime & better known as the anoraks favourite B.L.I.M, could do no wrong during the phase, & this 12" is a great example. Already having released early D&B classics on labels like S.O.U.R, breakbeats are G's bread & butter. The moody & electro tinged 'Funky As F**k' & nasty robotic snarl of 'Fruit Of The Boom' are two cuts from the era I wont part with, on account of the ingredients not dating a wink. Solid analog breaks action, don't overlook.
Very true in every respect. At the time of writing, early 90s hardcore breaks are having a revival, but the scene branded nu school breaks was widely snubbed by the pre internet music press way back then. The same could be said of trip hop, the short-lived movement of instrumental hip hop breaks. But as dylaf and many other music lovers know, there is gold to be found in most scenes. And just as you wouldn't want to skip very early 'trip hop' like krush, shadow and herbaliser, there is also stuff on 'nu school breaks' labels like marine parade and plank that holds up well. The genre labels are largely unhelpful. Most recently 'future garage' is the stoopidest one that will fade to obscurity before you have finished reading this sentence.
