Sub Editor Jessica Cole gives us a heads up on how to break out of our weekend routine with the Breaker Breaker freshly squeezed record launch party.
With the recent closure of Plastic People and the implement of more restrictions on what already feels like border control security at Fabric, the authorities for what ever bizarre reason appear to be tightening the noose on the straggly neck of the London club scene. As the pool of decent nights is slowly being drained, it feels as though we’re all being pushed to going to the same cattle market clubs – (Bussey’s queuing system – what even is that?).
Yet do not despair, your fist will and can pump once more in celebrating the birth of Breaker Breaker records. It was music to my ears, (excuse the pun), to hear that one of our fellow Goldsmithians, Haider Masroor, has taken a big dollop of initiative and set up the label Breaker Breaker Records, a platform for invigorating music with the spotlight firmly on ‘anything that’s left of center’. Saturday 17th of this month sees the launch party of the labels first E.P release, Alex Brown from ‘Ross From Friends’ another student whose track ‘Golf School’ has already had a few spins on Radio One. Joining forces with an array of super slick Djs such as recent Boiler Room fixture Ossie, Rinse FM’s Josey Rebelle and the ridiculously talented Squarehead, the launch party at the Amersham Arms is going to be a sterling night to groove into second term, with an arsenal of organic tunes to shimmy away the post deadline tremors – minus the corporate, red tape bullshit.
