PRE-ORDER: Rise & Shine 10″ Vinyl (BRK-12)

SENSE & Sotu the Traveller – “Rise & Shine” (BRK-12)

PRE-ORDER the 10″ vinyl for only $9.99 before it’s released on September 18th. If you do we’ll send you the MP3 version for FREE (320 kbps / DRM-free). All orders will ship immediately.

SENSE skillfully interweaves haunting samples in the tradition of DJ Muggs and RZA, while Sotu the Traveller’s organic instrumentation sculpts mystic, bass-drenched atmospheres. You may know SENSE from The Q4, formed with Arts The Beatdoctor and STW, whose single One of These Days reached #1 on the Dutch iTunes charts.

The record itself looks and sounds beautiful. We couldn’t be more proud of the release!

Everliven Sound & Inf (BRK-10 & 11)

Everliven Sound (Cymarshall Law & Skit Slam) met Inf at a Dutch music festival in 2010. Impressed with his beats, they decied to write and record an album in the nine days they were together. This proceeded as planned until a vital hard drive was dropped and the album vocal sessions were lost. “I didn’t crumble or crack,” proclaims Cymarshall Law on “Take It Back” which documents the event as the brothers re-recorded every track before being whisked away. The end result is Everlations and Everlations Instrumentals for you beat heads.

Arts The Beatdoctor in Search of Voices

Dutch producer and Beats Broke artist Arts The Beatdoctor is looking for special voices to incorporate in his new release, scheduled for release this year.

After his solo releases Fragments (2006), Transitions (2007) and Progressions (2008), and the group efforts Sound Surroundings and Darker Days with The Q4 in 2010, Arts The Beatdoctor is now working on a new solo record. For this, he is searching for input other than his own, in the form of voice recordings. Anybody willing to record his voice can enter his/her recording. Expect these voices to be filtered, chopped up, reversed, and mangled in other ways.

Since his first releases, his songs have been marked by the unorthodox use of vocals. Whether it is the unusual way of flipping a vocal sample from a dusty record, or the incorporation of vocal talent in a much bigger instrumental arrangement, Arts The Beatdoctor is inspired by the challenge of taking vocals out of their usual context. This project marks the next step in that challenge – working with material beyond his control, and finding its often hidden quality.

The deadline for sending in recordings is February 1st, 2012. For the complete instructions, and to send in your recordings, go to

I’m extremely proud to announce the debut release by our newest artist signing, Leadsmen.

PRE-ORDER SPECIAL: Pre-order the LP for $13.99 before it’s released on April 19 and receive a free digital copy of Inf’s The Go Round ($9.99 value). Pre-orders ship on April 12, a week before the record is available in stores.

Recipient of The Source Magazine’s ‘Unsigned Hype’ and member of the Rawkus 50, Cymarshall Law joins Beats Broke for the vinyl release of Freedom Express Line.

On the record, Law teamed up with The Beatnikz, a revered Swedish production duo. Together they hand-crafted a reggae-infused, boom-bap sound like no other. As a vinyl-only bonus track, we included Inf’s “Control” remix (feat. KRS-One) to close the album.

The first 500 units were pressed with a custom 2-color splatter, Beer (transparent) and Olive Green (opaque). With added illustration by Nwabe (France), this is the most beautiful record we’ve released. Truly one for the collection.
