Ministry of Breaks 🔊 & Music from Plump DJs 🍔


November 02, 2022

Welcome to the CTRL Z Newsletter, the companion to the radio show and event series named for the most worn out keys on my keyboard. ⌨️

This week, we have a Breaks special, but don't worry, there's plenty of Acid to go around too. 🫠

Ministry of Breaks presents Bass n Breaks

Ministry of Breaks kick off their new monthly residency with a bang at La Estación 57 in South London in association with Breaks FM, The Vinyl Touch and Bassology. The line up includes Ministry of Breaks resident/promoter Blaze DJ, alongside Southside Breaks, Makkattack, Dead Bonsai, Rundr, Lockup and Zenmonkey.

Check out Skiddle for tickets.

Record of the Week

DJ Hockey - Ripple [Model Future]

A psychedelic percussion driven tune with punchy kicks and atmospheric textures. Claps and hi hats, instantly recognisable as the 909, cut through to build the energy as the track progresses.

Classic of the Week

Mr Velcro Fastener - Electric Appliances (Plump DJs Vocal Mix)

One of my favourite Plump DJs productions, this one was featured on their Fabric mix in 2003 and features a nice squelchy bass line alongside a monotone vocal duet.

One More

Nikki Nair - Startrack [Pretty Weird]

A heavy Acid bass line drives this tune with a siren like riser in the breakdown before the bass line slowly builds back in before the drop.
