Limited Edition Double Album

Plastic Jam Productions 1993

Collection of rhythms & beats by Plastic Jam. Tracks are mislabelled on both the cover and the labels. The first disc is the collection of 'live' drum loops, where as the second disc contains the edited loops - constructed in part from samples from the first and other, more well-known breaks.

Most of these beats have been production-basis for several releases on Labello Blanco. Some of the titles give clues to where they were used previously (for example, D2 "Dubplate Style" can be heard in Macka Brown - Dub Plate Style)

I don't remember ever seeing this LP in the shops, i got my copy through mail order in the early 90’s. I ordered the Labello Xmas selection box Vol 2 & this came free with it. Need to go through it again & check what breaks are on it but i do remember it has the break Dillinja used in Silver blade/Tron, recorded that one from here a while back. (it also appears in longer format on a Zero G CD)

Might just be me, but I think the pressing is very thin. Otherwise, it's a very useful record. Just wish it was a little heavier.

It's a bit of a bitch when both sides of record one has the same breakbeat all the way through, programmed slightly different and that same breatbeak is also featured on record two, how pants is that.
