Premiere: Breaka shares samba-sampling breakbeat cut 'Steeze Flex'

It's the second release to arrive on the London producer's own label...

If there’s one sound running riot through the underground electronic music scene right now, it’s a drum break. As someone who’s been slotting Amens in tracks since 2017, London producer Breaka isn’t just hopping on the trend. The second release on his own label, ‘Breaka002’, shows off three cuts of exploratory dancefloor sounds, and we’re premiering one below.

“I started this self-release series to give myself a chance to release some slightly different sounding music,” Breaka says. “That continues with Breaka002 – for ‘Steeze Flex’, I wanted to make a rolling groove out of some favourite samba and Afro-Cuban beats, and then supplemented them with some moody synths and horns.”

Bringing trumpet and horn textures into stuttering drums and tripped-out vocal snippets, you can listen to ‘Steeze Flex’ below.
