Electronic Music >> Breakbeats/Breaks

Breakbeats is a style of electronic music that originated in the 1980s and is characterized by its use of broken-up drum patterns and samples. These patterns and samples are often taken from a variety of sources, such as funk, jazz, and hip hop, and are then rearranged and manipulated to create a unique sound. Breakbeats music is known for its fast tempo, driving rhythms and energetic sound, and it is often associated with the genres of hip hop and electronic dance music (EDM).

The origins of breakbeats can be traced back to the early days of hip hop in the 1970s, when DJs and producers began to experiment with using drum machines and samplers to create new sounds. Breakbeats music became more popular in the 1980s and 1990s, when it was embraced by the emerging EDM scene and became a staple of clubs and dance parties around the world.

As breakbeats gained in popularity, a number of artists and producers began to specialize in the genre. Some of the most famous breakbeat artists and producers include Afrika Bambaataa, Kraftwerk, and the Chemical Brothers. These artists are known for their style-defining albums and songs, such as Afrika Bambaataa's "Planet Rock" and the Chemical Brothers' "Block Rockin' Beats.". Further examples are the Chemical Brothers' "Exit Planet Dust," the Prodigy's "Music for the Jilted Generation," and the Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique."

Breakbeats music is often used for synchronization licensing. Its fast tempo and energetic sound make it well-suited for use in action scenes or for adding energy to a scene. In terms of the emotions that breakbeats evokes, it can range from feelings of excitement and joy to more aggressive and energetic moods. No matter what the mood, breakbeats has the ability to get listeners moving and create a sense of excitement and energy.

Like the camera flashlights and the chaos on the red carpet before a movie premiere. Or like a wild chase between skateboarders. From 01:30 ist becoming temporary calm, but only for some short moments.

9. Fire Funk 02:39

A rough and determined, gritty crossover of Rock, Funk, Electro and Hip-Hop. Slamming funk drums, a biting guitar riff and occasional squelchy synth riffs come together in a sort of urban "big beat" funk-rock. Good for chase, metal & glass, destruction and fighting, car race / car chase, tough guys, rough sports and action, action-filled undercover operation, etc.

Fire Funk
10. Australia 02:43

Vibrant, exciting and all things Australia!. Think a smattering of didgeridoo, lots of quick percussion and traditional mallet instruments all together in a fun and upbeat Aussie style track. This light and easy-going track would suit any Australian spot you may have.
