Fiending for some kick-arse beats? Wanna hear some funky drums? Need a dose of dope? Then 'it's about time we dropped another BREAKS FOR DAYS radio show - our usual slice of killer beats from years gone by. But it's time to hand it over to YOU guys & gals (if there are any ladies tuning in) to choose what you wanna hear. I'm sure by now you know the type of shiznit we like to drop on your unsuspecting eardrums. This time you choose, and all you have to do is think of a track OR artist, and click on the "comment" link below.
Now I cannot guarantee I will have every track requested, but don't forget the DAILY DIGGERS' crates go deeper than Jack Cousteau, so there's a very good chance that (if it's dope) we got it. And remember, we have no wack mp3s or CDs (what the fuck are they..?) here, just dusty vinyl from the vaults. So if you wanna know that Kid Dyno is going blue in the face searching for this or that 12" just to satisfy your every whim, drop a lil comment below and the Beat Detective and I will deliver the goodness on Thursday night ... with added dust and static at NO EXTRA COST. Who says we don't give you anything?
I look forward to seeing what you wanna hear. And remember... we got BREAKS for Days, and BEATS for Weeks!
Please include your name and location, and we'll give you a shout.
N.B. It has come to our attention that there has been excessive use of the word "dope" here on BREAKS FOR DAYS. You only have to see the above post. Firstly I would like to apologise for the overuse, and in my defence I claim that a life into hip hop has ingrained this word into my brain. And secondly I would like to point out that the "dope" we are referring to is NOT listed in the dictionary definitions below:
1. any thick liquid or pasty preparation, as a lubricant, used in preparing a surface.
2. an absorbent material used to absorb and hold a liquid, as in the manufacture of dynamite.

a. any narcotic or narcoticlike drug taken to induce euphoria or satisfy addiction.
b. any illicit drug.
5. Slang. a narcotic preparation given surreptitiously to a horse to improve or retard its performance in a race.
6. Slang. information, data, or news: What's the latest dope on the strike?
7. Informal. a stupid or unresponsive person.
8. Southern U.S. (chiefly South Atlantic States). soda pop, esp. cola-flavored.
9. North Central U.S. (chiefly Ohio). syrup used as a topping for ice cream.
–verb (used with object)
10. Slang. to affect with dope or drugs.
11. to apply or treat with dope.
12. Electronics. to add or treat (a pure semiconductor) with a dopant.

14. dope out, Slang.
a. to figure out; calculate; devise: to dope out a plan.
b. to deduce or infer from available information: to dope out a solution to a problem.
Hmmm ... it seems like the guys in dictionary corner don't like rap music. Tune in on Thursday and see what REAL dope is!
Easy dynO, i have a request bro, could you drop the insanely dope (yes i use that word a lot too) PHASE N RHYTHM - HYPERACTIVE joint?
Now i know you have that killer in your dusty vaults, it`s in the section labelled "grails"...
Much appreciated KID, look forward to hearing the new radio show, like i always do...! ;o)
yes brother Martin, that joint is within arms reach as I write this. Although this record cost me rather a lot of money and I prefer NOT to actually PLAY it if I can help it, with the hope of preserving it's value.......................................................................................................ha ha SIKE! Fuck that - records are for scratching!! You know me, I like to flip that shit.
You got it homey - stay tooooned on Thursday!
Haha nice one D, i know you aint one of these record anoraks that buy expensive records & never play em. Records are for playing, regardless of price & i know you & the Beat Detective like to flip any dope record you can get your dusty fingers on.
So i look forward to hearing you cut up HYPERACTIVE in the mix, DAILY DIGGERS style..!
Speak soon Kid..!
I reckon on a little tribute to the late great Mr Edwin J Bocage (Eddie BO) is in order..Seein' as he passed away last month and the whole reason i'm still down with the funk is because of this man!Hook and Sling would be the obvious but i'll leave it to you if you got any New Orleans surprise goodness in the crates.
Always quality listening! This will be on daily rotation for the week. Dope!
DJ Skeme Richards
Rock Steady Crew
Now if you could just get the show done we'd be aight!
SOUL SAFARI - what's up my man, it's real nice to know our local heads are tuning in. Eddie Bo was a major loss to New Orleans music.
Hook n Sling is a DAILY DIGGERS sureshot joint when we out spinning in the clubs. Classic.
..and YO SOUL SAFARI where did you cop your Bobby Day 45 from? Those drums are SICK SICK SICK!
SKEME - yes bro, I like to keep you fiending for a couple of days first LOL it adds to the tension! Best believe we're gonna include some break doubles for the b-boys & b-girls.
Hold tight people, it's gonna be a bumpy ride!
I wanna hear that version of "Mardi Gras" you got...you know, the one without the bells. It is you guys that got it right?!!
What I'd really like to hear is some fresh Daily Diggers beats...and just some crazy break action to get me bugged out.
hey Mr K!
you got it, I will drop a little Daily Diggers beat, possibly as a background track while I'm talking my usual shit.
..and as for the BOB JAMES, the version I have is clear vinyl 45rpm promo 7" with the accapella version with JUST the bells! I swapped it with BOB himself for a few piano lessons. He learnt a lot from me ;o)
You like the Bobby Day? Took me a little while to bag myself a copy. Thanks to Baby T records based in Chelmsford! sadly they have ceased trading..they used to do a monthly list for the Funk/Soul boys but it had some quality breaks too!
Look forward to the Eddie Bo..
Bob didnt tell me about giving away his records for piano lessons. He could have just asked if he needed any money.
Bizmark really created a monster with that thing didnt he?
Play us some amiga please. There must be some where that lokomotiv gt came from.
Ummm Dope meaning DOPEEEEEE!
been sleeping on internet steez, being an old fella an all dat (got a windows lesson in the mobile library, Tuesday mornings is strictly OAP's yeah you know me! I remember when they had records too!) will be checking mo ofen fro now on.
