Paying Tribute To ‘Ultimate Breaks and Beats’


Remember when being a DJ meant having more than a MacBook and an actual record rollection?  When DJs carried vinyl and were digging through crates to find that rare gem?  The Ultimate Breaks and Beats collection was a must have for any serious DJ in the pre-Serato era.  The 25 ubbtourvolume compilation featured the essential drum and break beats from prominent artists.  With the first UBB release in 1966 the collection continued through the 80’s on Street Beat records.

To pay homage to the releases Big Daddy Entertainment is presenting the ‘Ultimate Breaks and Beats DJ Tour Launch Party’ at B.B. King Blues Club on 02.24.10.  Helping pay tribute to UBB is an insane lineup of top DJs and producers.  Confirmed guests for the night include DJ Dummy, Teve Dee, Kenny Dope, Breakbeat Lou, all members of Da Beatminerz (DJ Evil DeeMr. Walt, & Bazarro), J Flawless, DJ Wiz, Boogie Blind, Incrediboi, DJ Mocha, Eddie B Swift, Maseo of De La Soul, Lord Finesse, DJ Scratch, DJ Spinna, Grandwizard Theodore, & Spinderella of Salt-n-Pepa.  Tickets are just $20 in advance to see a loaded lineup all on one bill.
