Quick Review: UKSP – UK Special

You’ll see Aaron ‘Breakbeat’ Fagan putting his work in all over the land. I’ve personally bumped into him on Oxford Street a few times shotting (his Mixtape). And spoken to him about the rise in cultured UK music, which I believe this LP is. You won’t find tales of shanks, lengs and midnight moped robberies here. Instead over the live percussion and precise drum patterns is HIS take on the capital. A cross between hip hop and jazz, but with rough likable edges best describes his sound. Looking through the window via ‘Breakbeat’ tinted glasses is cool but not for too long as it’s not for everyone’s tastes. Try before you buy… or just buy – cos it’s a fresh change Track to playlist: Artcha or State of Mind
