    More of a housey breakbeat type crossover tune, just with the beggars spitting on it.

    Noisia tend to make quite a bit of breakbeat/house stuff.

    is it not too slow to be breakbeat? I thought it was around 90bpm or something basicly half time dnb?

    electro house then...

    Whatever it is its not a hip hop beat.

    Thats like electro, but saying Contact isnt Hip Hop because its got a housey beat is like saying Timewarp isn't Drum & Bass

    No its not because contact has none of the charateristics of a traditional hip hop beat plus its a completely different tempo where as timewarp is just a dnb tune with a swing on the beat.
