“El Old-skoolico” aka ALT-A is back...this time in a powerful n' melodic mood! Everybody knows that despite considering himself and his team the protectors of Santa Monica area, he has no qualms about tipping off the police when the odds look unfavorable. On the Mexican day of the dead has a run-in with a masked employee. He is connected to an aztec warrior demon name Tezcatcatl, who prays on the hearts of heroes. This leads “El Old-skoolico” to wrestle with some personal issues when he learns about “Los Hermanos numeros”, a family of Five Mexican Luchadores who helped the helpless until one day four were slain by Tezcatcatl. He helps the last member “El Profe” aka XTREME PROJECT, the aforementioned employee, to discover the hero inside, which he lost when his family were killed. Old-skoolico, El Profe and his four brothers, temporarily back from the dead, battle and kill the demon. This leads to the death of El Profe, who is escorted into the afterlife by his brothers. There he researched the Shanshu Prophecy about a vampyre becoming human, and he managed to re-birth as a Luchador again!

What is Breakbeat


Breakbeat (sometimes breakbeats or breaks) is a term used to describe a collection of sub-genres of electronic music, usually characterized by the use of a non-straightened 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house or trance). These rhythms may be characterised by their intensive use of syncopation and polyrhythms.

 

History


In the late 1970s and early 1980s, hip-hop DJs (starting with Kool DJ Herc) began using several breaks (the part of a funk or jazz song in which the music "breaks" to let the rhythm section play unaccompanied) in a row to use as the rhythmic basis for hip-hop songs. Kool DJ Herc's breakbeat style was to play the same record on two turntables and play the break repeatedly by alternating between the two records (letting one play while spinning the second record back to the beginning of the break). This style was copied and improved upon by early hip hop DJs Afrika Bambaataa and Grand Wizard Theodore.This style was extremely popular in clubs and dance halls because the extended breakbeat was the perfect backdrop for breakdancers to show their skills.

In recent times, the term breakbeat has become synonymous with the many genres of breaks music which have become popular within the global dance music scene, including big beat, nu skool breaks and progressive breaks. DJs from a variety of genres, including house and techno, work breaks tracks into their sets. This may occur because the tempo of breaks tracks (ranging from 110 to 150 beats per minute) means they can be readily mixed with these genres, whereas the comparatively fast speed of jungle and drum and bass (160-180 bpm) may have restricted the utility of these subgenres to DJs playing slower-tempo music. Some artists well known for breakbeat include The Freestylers, NAPT, Dj Loopy, Pendulum, Soul Of Man, Dj deekline and wizard, Ben & Lex, The Breakfastaz, Ctrl Z, Stanton Warriors, Dj Icey, Freq Nasty and Plump DJ's.

Breakbeats are used in many hip hop, rap, jungle, and hardcore songs, and can also be heard in other music, from popular music to background music in car and jean commercials on the radio or TV.
