Breakbeat

Cakeboy – Weapons EP

Stalwart of the breakbeat scene, Cakeboy has been releasing big and bouncy tunes for 15 years,with a dollop of good humour and with his tongue firmly in his cheek. – one of my all-time favourite album titles was “Gateau Blaster” – genius!

But beyond the humour and half-baked culinary puns lie some cracking tunes, and the two new tracks on the Weapons EP are no exception. First up, at a storming 135 BPM is “Rockin the Retro”. A rasping bassline brings the bounce to the crisp breakbeat and the ascending pitch of the vocal sample in the breakdown is particularly pleasing. No less floor- friendly  is the relatively pedestrian title track. The beats are supplemented nicely with the use of a variety of kits and the simple synth and vocal  samples make sure this is one catchy tune. With this release Cakeboy has continued to prove that there’s more to this DJ / Producer than just a wry sense of humour, and it should be in every right-minded DJs arsenal this new year.
