Released: April, 2007
So it’s been a little since I dropped the original 100 Breaks mix. Actually been over a year since I’ve dropped anything significant, which is way too long. Can anyone believe that the latest installment of the in the series has been has been completed, yet unreleased since October ’06!??
To tell the truth, I had a pretty big internal debate with myself about the release. At first I was going to press up a bunch of copies, get the covers printed, and go for broke. Then all of a sudden something changed… the mixtape circuit when through a drastic change, readership of the site suddenly hit a spike, and I realized that it was more important for the music to be heard than it was to make sales.
As always, inside you’ll find exactly 100 original Hip Hop samples & breaks mixed together using 100% vinyl records with absolutely no reprints. While I can’t say that all of the joints appearing in the mix are rare or difficult to find, they are all complete masterpieces of musical creation.
With that said, I hereby dedicate DJ Semantik’s 100 Breaks Vol. 2: Book of Breaks to all the loyal readers, fans, forum members, and other web sites that have shown support to us. Hope that you all enjoy and feel free to drop me a line if you hear something you like.
