45 Box Set
7" Vinyl Single Record [7x7"]
Back in the 70s when Hip-Hop pioneers such as Afrika Bambaataa, Kool Herc, Jazzy Jay and others pioneered using two copies of certain records to extend the rhythm section, "The Break", to make the dancers go wild. This created a frenzy where certain records were kept secret from other DJs thus creating a certain mystique around certain "Breaks" and DJs would be popular for using those specific tracks. Moving forward, in the middle of the 80s Lenny "Break Beat" Roberts had the brilliant idea to take all the "Break" records and compile them onto one set, thus creating the Ultimate Breaks & Beats series, which has gone on to become a legendary part of Hip-Hop culture, not to mention mandatory for any DJ's crate. Originally some of the dopest "Breaks" were issued only on 7 inch vinyl. Back in the day the old school DJs would glue or tape the 7"s to 12" records to make "quick mixing" easier and faster. When the UBB's were issued on 12" vinyl, the majority of DJs abandoned the 7"s for the more DJ friendly 12" versions. So this UBB 7" Box Set series is a return to form so-to-speak to the origins of the party rocking B Boy Breaks of the 70s.Every track in this set is a certified Hip-Hop staple! All seven records are reissued in their original form, on their original label.
