I am proud to announce the first release on 'Make or Break', which will be pushing the sound of breakbeat drum and bass. Really excited to have Fanu kick start the first release with an amazing remix of my track 'Control Signal’. There is plenty of amazing music in the pipeline from new artists as well as some familiar names and this will be the first of many releases to come. I will keep this thread updated with information on forthcoming releases.

'Control Signal’. Sekl kicks us off with ice cold jazzy atmospherics, deadly deep subs and tightly wound funk breaks to let you know kool is back to control the dance.

‘Sound Clash’. When you hear this, you will know you are in Rough Territory… haunting synths and eye-flickering breaks bring in the unmistakable call of Ricky Trooper sending for the amen pressure and a bassline to test any sound system.

‘Control Signal (Fanu Remix)'. Fresh from his second EP on Metalheadz, Fanu brings the drum funk to the fore with this remix. Crunchy breaks, horn stabs, a lively bass and wild drum edits keep your head nodding and feet shuffling from start to Finnish.

The exclusive Bandcamp only (Fanu “Can’t Mix This” Remix) bonus track twists up the tempo in true dog ate my tape pack fashion. Good luck mixing this one!

The second release on Make or Break takes you on an three part journey through atmospheric breakbeat drum and bass.

1). Instruction Set - Forge La Funk. Embracing you with warm nostalgic tape pack vibes, the debut track from Instruction Set lifts off in a haze of dreamy pads, deep subs and rolling breaks.

2). Rough Territory - Heartburst. Inspired by the classic sounds of early Bukem, Heartburst rolls out amen and sub bass pressure with minimal atmospherics and hypnotic mantras to elevate the heart rate.

3). Instruction Set - Forge La Funk (Ben Kei 'Laid back' Remix). Ben Kei blesses us with a deep, funky remix for the heads. Touches of rhodes and apache help soothe the early morning raving recovery.

I am very pleased to announce a new EP from Laytn and myself Sekl - Smash The System EP.

This release is for the tech steppas and the ultra low sub-bass lovers. This isn't an EP for the faint hearted and is a full on assault of heavy breaks and aggressive bass - just the way we like it. Watch ya bassbins, I'm telling ya!

Release date is 27th August and you will receive a copy of Laytn & Sekl - The Voice if you pre-order now.


Laytn & Sekl - 'Smash The System'. Out to the West London techsteppin' crew. Sekl joins forces with Laytn and draws on his West London roots to provide a barrage of militant breaks and darkside vibes, shelling a cantankerous sub-bass to smash any system.

Laytn & Sekl - 'The Voice'. This one is a deep cut... mad drums and 808s unfold to guide you into the midsts of the jungle.

Laytn & Sekl - 'Fusion 500'. Slices of funk bring in a dancefloor roller. Straight-up b-line pressure.

Sekl - 'Numbers Station'. Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they aren't out to get you. Experimental, break heavy darkness transmitting on ultra low frequencies.

Laytn is back with his first solo release on Make or Break - Dust & Ages


Laytn
blesses us with a deep, house-tinged roller. Warm pads, lush strings and a hypnotic bassline combine to shake down the planet.

Silence Groove delivers a wicked remix taking you on an emotional journey through breakbeat music. Crisp breaks, snarling bass stabs and evolving landscapes build to touch the inner soul.

Watch out for Laytn’s debut solo EP later this year on Make or Break, it's going to be heavy!

Sekl - Dreams In Audio EP is OUT NOW on Make or Break Bandcamp, all digital stores and streaming platforms

If you like your breaks raw, subs gritty and atmospherics heavy, this EP is for you. I've enjoyed taking my time and going in on the breaks, focusing on textures and character and trying to keep the beats different and interesting.


As well as my own break heavy remix, Fanu has done an amazing job with his take on Amos Keato's - Some Dread Purpose

Sekl - Dreams In Audio
Vaporwave meets drum funk as dreamy sax, atmospheric piano and lucid pads combine with dusty breakbeat patterns to alter your consciousness.

Amos Keato - Some Dread Purpose (Sekl Remix)
A track many have tried to revive, the original by Amos Keato lost for eternity. Sekl rebuilds from the original source breaks - the result is dread artillery to shell down the dance.

Sekl - Carrion
Sludgy, viscous and murky; Sekl lays down his interpretation of the infamous Blowfly break.

Sekl - Dark Place
Returning to the dark side with crisp, slamming breaks, bassline groove and ghostly touches of tech to kick up the dancefloor.

Amos Keato - Some Dread Purpose (Fanu Remix)
Fanu rises to the challenge with a remix as menacing as it is funky. Raw drums build to a frenzy before the explosive 808 drops and a weaponised Think break lets loose in trademark Fanu style.

I have put together a mix showcasing tracks from the Dreams In Audio EP and more forthcoming music on the label. I've gone in on this mix from the start - for the intro I rebuilt Blowfly - Sesame Street without the vocal at 121BPM and transitioned the tempo up to 170BPM whilst reconstructing one of my new tracks 'Carrion' from the source break, you won't hear another mix like this.
