Reewind! 2001:
"While it is reaching a level of success, breaks still is underground. Basically it was ruined by the commercial big beat sound where the huge record labels came in and made everything cheesy by sampling old vocals and guitar riffs from songs. I always stayed away from that and while I occasionally used samples they weren't cheesy but original sounds that I spent years trying to find. After the big beat phenomenon really destroyed itself the break beat sound went back to its roots for a while and even with the recent popularity of Nu Skool breaks and the like it is still quite underground and hasn't really charted yet or gone into the mainstream. This is good because it gives the sound a decent length of time to nurture and develop."
