Working With Breakbeats

A session at Revision 2013

Sunday 31st March, 2013

11:00am to 12:00pm (CET)

In contrast to drum machine sounds or single drum samples, breakbeats (or just "breaks") are drum patterns or fills either sampled from records or specially recorded sample libraries from drummers. Genres like hip hop and jungle are founded upon the use of such recordings, and they are utilized in countless other genres across the spectre of electronic music.

The seminar will touch briefly on the history and origins of breakbeats, and then demonstrate several approaches to their use in different music genres. Through case studies pre-processing, slicing and rearranging, mixing, layering and resampling of breakbeats will be covered by a musician that has used breaks in just about every track he has produced.
