TONE B. NIMBLE - Soul is My Salvation Vol. 2 - release party recap

Saturday, July 22, 2017 down at 606 Records (Chicago) we had a release party for Tone B. Nimble's latest mixpate, Soul is My Salvation Vol. 2 on Record Breakin' Music. It is an ALL VINYL 90 minute gospel oriented mix of disco, funk, and soul. Limited Edition cassette only 200 copies. 

From garage sales, to dollar bins, from flea markets to record fairs Tone B. Nimble has returned with the second installment of Soul Is My Salvation. A series dedicated to the Disco sounds of the church. Initially introduced as an online stream; we’ve thrown time back. You’ll need an old-school cassette player boom-box to hear this set, released exclusively on a limited-edition cassette via Record Breakin' Music.

Consisting of two 45 minute programs; side A focuses on midtempo modern soul grooves, while side B is more upbeat and consists of soul, funk, disco, and even house grooves. For the purest out there, Tone records this mix in one take; using all vinyl on a rotary mixer....Amen.
So, when you’re seeking some uplifting dance floor jams Soul Is My Salvation Vol. 2 is your must-have!!!

Skeme Richards - New Library Sounds - Release Party Recap

Saturday, July 15, 2017 down at Brewerytown Beats we had a release party for Skeme Richards latest mixpate, New Library Sounds on Record Breakin' Music. It is an ALL VINYL 60 minute mix of new sound library vibes. Limited Edition cassette only 200 copies. 

"My latest project, New Library Sounds is a collection of works from many of today’s artists who are creating cinematic masterpieces without a script or featured actors but doing so by imagination and what feels right. What you are about to hear is just that, a cinematic expression that feels as though it should be a score to a film, one that’s filled with action and adventure, love and drama, hope and despair yet genre less at the same time. It’s a journey into the unknown but charting into familiar territory that places you in the center screen."

Record Breakin' Music Favorite Releases of 2016

OK, OK, lets just admit it...YES, 2016 was an interesting year on so many levels. Some good, some bad. I have always found music as a refuge and inspiration. I got such a great response from my 2015 list that I decided to try and put a small list together this year. Well, so much for that. As I took time to really reflect on the year I realized that there has been some amazing music that was released in 2016. Similar to last year, I took a look at the releases I have bought (my wife will tell you about my addiction to buying music, especially physical releases) and the ones that were sent to me. (Now is probably a good time to say THANK YOU to all the labels and artist that have sent me promos. It is MUCH APPRECIATED but does not influence if they made the list or not. Good music is good music.) 

Anyway, if you listen to my weekly radio show Eavesdrop Radio [Fridays on 91.7FM from 6-9PM (EST)] that I co-host with lil' dave this list isn't really a surprise. This list is in no particular order but does reflect releases I went back to over and over throughout the year. It's great that so many of these releases came out on vinyl and some even on cassette. I encourage you to click on the artwork to find out more about these projects and support their music.

 I wish you all the best for the New Year and look forward to hearing more amazing music in 2017. I know Record Breakin' Music has some tricks up their sleeves as we get ready to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Thank you to the entire artists on this list and the labels for releasing music that has been our soundtrack for the year and years to come!
