Disc Breaks with Llupa - 202 - ft. James Brooke - 17th May 2012

After a weeks break while I sunned myself in Bali, we're back and this week have a guest mix from a local talent - James Brooke. James has been playing round Melbourne for a while as well as having his own label and is a great one for supporting local music and events as well as having his own cracking Radio show on the Local Kiss FM station - Elements. His music tastes are very diverse, but he's gone back to his musical roots with this old skool prog breaks mix he's laid down just for us - quality!



James Brooke

James Brooke’s interest in dance music was spiked at the mere age of 12. Previously immersed in more alternative sounds, his older sister exposed him to a different style of music. BT ‘Movement in Still Life”, Prodigy “Fat of the Land”, and Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto were on constant rotation at home. Once hearing this, James was hooked. 

At age 16 he sold his bass guitar, left the band he was involved in and went out and purchased some decks and a mixer and taught himself how to mix. Inspired by local gun’s Phil K and Nubreed, James initial genre of choice was breaks. However, feeling the urge to take his tastes and sets further, he started exploring many other genres and styles. He discovered he loved them all. Not content to pigeonhole himself into one box, James is now a very versatile DJ. Progressive, trance, breaks and techno are mixed seamlessly together, making sure even the most fickle crowds are kept entertained and rocking. 

The last four years have seen James arrival into the Melbourne dance scene. Rocking many of Melbourne’s top nightclubs such as Room680, Brown Alley, My Aeon, Miss Libertines, Wah Wah Lounge and many more. He has supported international DJ’s BT, Tiesto, Agnelli & Nelson, Sander Van Doorn, Matt Darey, Marco V, Sean Tyas, Roger Shah, Simon Patterson, Richard Durand, Leon Bolier, Sied Van Riel & many more. He has played at Trance Energy & Earthcore. With residencies at White Sands, Nexus and Loose, this young talent has successfully established himself as one of the local scene’s gems.

James Brooke is without a doubt a crowd pleaser, intuitively understanding and reading the crowd is his specialty - He always seems to know what tracks to play that will keep the dance floor in motion. Smiling faces, dancing feet and head’s bumping, no chin strokers to be seen. It’s this impressive set of skills that have seen James chosen to compile discs on CD’s such as Godskitchen, In Trance We Trust Australia, and the official Sensation Australia compilation as well. Feat’s normally achieved by only the most established internationals – or their equal. 

The start of 2008 saw James launch his own record label, 405 Recordings. Already gaining the support of countless local and international dj’s, label features such names as, Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, BT, Cosmic Gate, alongside local guns, Aaron Camz, Trent McDermott, Brendan B and many others. 405 Recordings has grown to be Australia’s biggest and best Trance label, with countless CD releases and an even bigger digital stable of tracks and releases.

Toward the end of 2010 James launched his very own radio show called ‘Elements’ on Melbourne’s dance music radio station Kiss FM, which airs Saturday nights from 9 – 10:30pm. Featuring weekly guest DJ’s, interviews and exclusive new tunes. He has already had names such as Ferry Corsten, Richard Durand, Mark Sherry, Timo Maas, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Aly & Fila and many more.
Make sure you tune in as it’s quite an impressive show.

Disc Breaks with Llupa - 201 - ft. Skaarj - 3rd May 2012

Big thanks to all those that contacted me after last weeks 200th special - glad you dug it as much a I did playing it and we now crack on to the next hundred......

This week I have a very cool artist showcase from a guy that has been really impressing me lately - Skaarj. He writes proper deep breakbeat in my opinion, driving and bass driven but with solid beats and great melodies and breaks - he lets each track breathe and flow and he become a firm favourite. He's also pretty prolific so the mix is more of an artist showcase with over 12 of his tunes and remixes included - all quality. This is really not one to miss!



Skaarj

My name is Sergey, I play and write tracks in music style called Breaks (all of its forms). Music for me is not just a collection of sounds, but something much bigger. After going through a lot of musiс styles, my preference leaned toward the broken rhythms. Forever fell ill into breakbeat in 2005. After listening to a lot of Breaks music I desired to learn DJing and in a short time I started to do that yourself. After this, wanted to go further and learn how to write my own tracks and soon I got it.I like very technical music, and love to experiment. I like to play and write like a powerful and a very nice and easy music. Music that surprises me almost every day - Breaks! And it also very interesting for me, to listen to different sorts of music, and learn something new from it.
