Bacon Beats Breakbeat Mix by Kepi on Mixcloud
Ok ya’ll, You got to peep this new breakbeat mix I did. I love these tracks. I personally have been listening to them non-stop. So I put together a continuous booty bass mix of Stanton Warriors, DJ Icey, & More! Download is now available…for FREE: BACON BEATS DOWNLOAD. I will post the track list here soon. Just in time for Spring, I highly suggest downloading this stuff ASAP and playing this mix in the car with the windows down.
This is the sound I am really into right now. I really always have been. Gettin’ back to my roots so to speak. For me breaks invoke more emotion from me and makes me want to boogie where ever I am.
Voting Is Now Over. Thanks to you who voted!
OK everybody, here is your chance to launch my tune to the top. I just finished a new track for a remix contest on Beatport. First one I have entered, on Beatport that is. I have another track out there currently but I have to wait until judging to release it. We will get back to that one sometime next month. Right now though the current track for you to listen to is MATT TOLFREY – THE SPOOKS FEAT. KEVIN KNAPP remix by myself that I call the KEPI’S BASS-DOWN MIX. I actually ran into quite a few technical issues while making this track so needless to say I would have liked to work on it more but hey this is what I came up with.
So you have to be logged in to vote but Beatport is a great place to find new artists, music and news about the dance culture. Thanks in advance for your vote!
Brunch Beats by Kepi on Mixcloud
This is great mix of brunch beat breakbeats to get yo ass shaking!
These sounds represent what I feel to be some of the best artists on the scene right now (and I must say there are so many). So I chose to showcase more of the breakbeat sound with a side of house. Shouts out to Stanton Warriors, Deekline, Riva Starr, Mark Starr, LouLou Players, Drumattic Twins, Ed Solo, Kolombo, Roy Davis Jr., DJ Tameil & Mafia Kiss for producing some of the sickest breakbeats around!
If you like Brunch Beats…….
Here is another new breaks mix you will like: Bacon Beats
Breakbeats by Kepi – Yes Yes Y’all
Yes Yes Yall – Breakbeats by Kepi on Mixcloud
What is breakbeats you may ask? Here is a definition for Breaks.
Breakbeat (sometimes breaks or breakbeats) can refer to two distinct but related things. 1) It is both an electronic music genre and the 2)distinct percussive rhythm from which this genre takes its name, usually characterized by the use of a non-straightened (percussion instruments do not play directly on beat) 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house, techno and trance). These rhythms may be characterized by their intensive use of syncopation and polyrhythms. Both meanings are closely connected to hip hop and b-boying (breakdance).

Get On The Dance Floor
An illuminated dance floor, LED dance floor or disco dance floor is a floor with panels (tiles) which light up with different colors. They are used for dance. They were popularized for disco by the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever which it had gotten inspiration from a floor the director of the movie had seen at “The Club”, a private supper club in Birmingham, Alabama.
Early illuminated floors date back to the 1950’s. They consisted of translucent colored glass panels lit from below by bulbs.
- Like a good race track it should have just the right amount of give; it should not be too hard, which causes repetitive strain injuries, or too soft, which is tiring.
- It should be even and flat with only small variation in characteristics across the surface.
- It should be springy and return energy to lift the feet when moving, but not too springy like a trampoline.
DJ Kepi has a great amount of DJ sets for download here. Available so you can burn your own CD for play in your car or other places.
A DJ mix or DJ set is a sequence of musical tracks typically mixed together to appear as one continuous track. DJ mixes are usually performed using a DJ mixer and multiple sounds sources, such asturntables, CD players, digital audio players or computer sound cards, sometimes with the addition of samplers and effects units, although it’s possible to create one using sound editing software.
When a DJ set is recorded onto some medium, it is referred to as a mix tape. When it is produced live, it is called a live set.
So here are some original tracks. These were lost to time and I recently gained access back to them as the hard-drive they were on crashed. 50% of sales for my ‘Dreamstate’ track go to the charity Beat Lab. New material in the works. Hope you enjoy.
