Gypsy Rock / The Grump

A 2 track funk single (6m 9s) — released June 30th 2008 on Breakin Bread
BREAKIN BREAD continue to push their brand of "DIRTY, BEATBREAKIN' FUNK AND HIP HOP" with a 7" from Ill Boogs. Ill Boogs is one of the UK's top b-boys (breakdancers). He was one of the founding members of the Floor Science Crew and he went on to become a key member of the legendary Born To Rock and Sinstars Crews. The label first got to know Ill Boogs when he came down to the early Brixton club sessions (way back in 1998) held by the Breakin Bread crew,. Since then Ill Boogs has probably been to more Breakin Bread parties than any other b-boy in the UK. As a result, it's completely natural that Ill Boogs' musical offerings are right up our street and when we heard his latest productions we realised that we needed to get these to a wider audience. We hope you'll agree that Boogs has produced a tight funky/beatsy 7" for us…. Side A "Gypsy Rock" This is a straight up B-Boy tune. Made by a b-boy for b-boys. It kicks off with a deep bassline and then goes straight into drums, keys and horns. The drums have a bit of a disco feel to them and the tune builds nicely through a succession of breakdowns and tempo changes. This tune has a real groove to it and we've even had to persuade some people that it is not an original funk tune and yes it is made from samples! It just goes to show how much dancers actually "feel" music. Gypsy Rock never fails to get people on the floor……b-boys, party goers, wall huggers, they'll all be feeling this one Side B "The Grump" More of a cut and paste funk tune than the b-boy track on the A side. This ones a bit slower and sparser. Again there are horns in here and the drums have that classic "boom bap" to them and again this has been tried and tested on the dancefloor by the Breakin Bread crew. This one rocks the dancefloor but won't always generate a circle with legs flying out of it!
