[RATING: 5] Fans of that ol’ boom-bap will no doubt be familiar with a certain classic of the genre – Breaking Atoms – the debut LP from Large Professor’s crew, Main Source. A veritable samplefest, there’s no doubting its influence or the fact that it has stood the test of time. In fact it’s the sort of thing that the likes of Smoove have been aurally mainlining since it came out. That’s got to have an effect on a man, surely? Er – a little bit, yeah! The man’s obsession has only compelled him to dig up every single sample from the LP and then spend three hermit-like months in the studio constructing an old school style eight-and-a-half minute cut and paste mix of all the samples. Let that be a lesson to us all. See what I did there? The best news of all though is that you’ll be able to get your clammy hands on a copy split across both sides of vinyl 7″ in early summer! Boom! And, indeed, bap!
