Both sides were also HUGE in the underground in the U.S. in the early 90's. So imagine my surprise when I walked into Satellite Records NYC one day in the late 90's and saw a stack of about 25 or 30 mint copies of this. I snapped up 2 copies real quick!!! For the next 2 or 3 weeks the stack just sat there. Almost untouched!! I remember looking at them and thinking.."maybe I should just buy them all". Couple days later...poof...somebody beat me to it.

Huge Hardcore 12" back in 91.
"Shes breaking up" has a break-beat rhythm, with trumpet sounding synth rift, sirens and Bionic man vocal sample all layered together to create a monster of a break beat tune. Big track back in its day.
"Boom Box" is also a great tune, but a little less well known.

House breakbeat royalty. Two tracks on this 12", She's Breaking Up being the better known one. Clever sampling + beats and a great way to start an old skool set with it's gradual intro. Boom Box is also rated by many, nice breaks + heavy bass. A pirate + rave mainstay in the early 90's. You can't go wrong!

True classic. Huge circulation back in the earliest days of the 90s. Loved it, love it, will always love it.

It seems some DJ's got hold of it early on, on dubplate, acetate or test press because it was being played from the second part of 1990.

Case in point. Check out the YT clip of Nemesis 1990

The track was made in the summer of 1990, but wasn't released until 1991.

True this record is a classic breaks tune.
This appeared back in the early rave scene in england and you heard the title track played at many big parties and on mixtapes.
I think the Dj / Mc team Ratpack realy made this track popular and I remember when first searching for a copy they were changing hands for 5O pounds a pop so back then so wasn`t a cheap vinyl.
I still love the origional and the B side to this day and it always reminds me of when I was young and first going out into the dance scene.
So origional and simplistic but sounds so good.
If you do not own a copy you should buy one because the vinyl sound is untouchable.

An old school (and old sounding) but phat and funky gem nevertheless. While spotters always chase down "She's Breakin Up" (probably because it was featured in a popular Adam Freeland mix), "Boombox" will always remain my choice track. A bit of a sleeper break tune with a fat bassline and ghetto funk feel, this record was hitting the decks long before Freeland discovered it.
