    Just been mixing all break tunes for the past hour and just thought i'd pay homage to this insane producer, I dont think there is another producer bar calibre that has such a successful back catalogue, most producers release a dodgy 12 or ep once in a while but not break.

    SO I thought it would be interesting to see what everyones top tens are, doesnt have to be in order etc.

    ( I did look to see if there was a thread like this but could'nt find one)

    1. Timeline
    2. Mr Crystal
    3. Chaos Theory
    4. Isis

    the filth
    salvage
    is this what you want
    let it happen
    hooligan
    x track

    To be honest, it could be any of his tracks. But those are the first that spring to mind for sure.

    Sticky Situation should be in everyone's top ten Break tunes.

    One of the first tunes he got released and still one of his best.

    1. Let It Happen
    2. Run Off
    3. Isis
    4. Hooked Up
    5. They're Wrong
    6. Cold Sweat
    7. The Drone
    8. Chaos Theory
    9. Is This What You Want
    10. Winter Sun

    Favourite remix is either Brainstich or Bambatta. This could change daily though, as mentioned far too many to call a top ten. Staggering really when you think about quality output, only calibre really rivals when thinking about consistency.
