JOHNNYPLUSE: ‘Give Me A Break’ movie short

JOHNNYPLUSE: Give Me A Break film shortBulabeats head honcho and man with finger in multiple musical pies, Johnnypluse, settles into the director’s chair once more for new film short, Give Me A Break, the follow-up to 2016’s Breaking The Beat. While the latter was a retrospective – nay, a celebration – of ten years of the Bulabeats label, Give Me A Break provides a thirteen-minute homage to the concept of the funk drum breakdown itself through interviews with Krafty Kuts, DJ Moneyshot and Mathman with a few words from J5 emcee Chali 2Na. Find out when Krafty started getting into breaks, what 2Na did before he rapped, how it is possible that a mere slip of a youth like Mathman should be interested in or know anything about funk drum breaks and – most interestingly – what Moneyshot’s favourite drum break is. At the point of filming of course – since, as he freely admits, it changes all the time. Oh yes, and the whole project is edited together with an audio-visual cut n paste nod to sampling.
