Super stoked to announce I will be having my very own EP coming out April 2015. This is a 3 track EP featuring 2 of my original tracks and a remix to be announced. This will be released on Night and the City Records. Previews coming soon…
This track is so good so I could not resist throwing a version in here. Thanks to Pacho & Pepo, Cloning Sound and all the other artists here who put their heart and soul into their music!
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

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.
So we did it! 1000 downloads as of last night. My appreciation is beyond crazy!
So here is the download to my new mix:
Dope Beats To Step To
You can also stream it from the player below. I will have a track listing up soon. Gotta get some rest first.
Plus if that wasn’t enough, I went to #1 on the ReverbNation DJ charts for Portland, OR.
I started my DJ website 2/25/2011 & as of today I hit the 3000 visitor mark. Might not seem like much but to me its a big accomplishment so I want to say, Thank You to everyone!
Plus the 4 mixes I have for streaming and download which span 6/24/2012 to 10/2/2012 have had 988 downloads between the 4 of them (about 250 each). I will be watching closely as I approach the 1000 mark for downloaded mixes. Not sure what I can do to say Thank You other than at that point I will have an exclusive new mix up that I have been working intently on. I know you will love it. Thanks for listening and I look forward to bringing you more of what I love in 2013!
