referencing The Break, 12", UNI 1018
A favorite instrumental piece across the board. DJs played this piece for YEARS and always got dancers sweating to its infectious rhythms. A Classic that NEVER gets old. One of my all time favorites!!

referencing The Break (Remix), 12", UNI-1041

Awesome out-of-print extended edit/Re-Production of a hard-core disco classic from the "disco glory days", before all the "Balkanization" of dance music into different categories: Garage, Hi-NRG, New Wave and the 200 new categories since then.
Steve Thompson did the popular "original" 12" version, and pioneering NYC DJ Jonathan Fearing (R.I.P.) went to town with the razor blade editing and backwards tape effects.
Despite the credits on this 12", the B-Side is basically a shorter version of the A-side, with a lot less of the backwards drum looping. The B-Side is NOT the "Original version", as you'll discover by perusing our very own discogs listings right here. Somebody at the label dropped the ball when they fact-checked the copy for the label-art.
Unidisc no longer has rights to this collectable, so if you like stomping, hard, percussion driven instrumental DISCO, you'll *love* this.
