Reykjavik Grapevine: Features: Breakbeat.is – “Bringing The Breakbeat To Book”

21 Feb

Did an interview last week with Kalli and Ragnar from Icelandic DJ collective breakbeat.is about their crowdsourcing publishing project “Taktabrot”, which is a design book detailing the history of the collective though their poster art.

And said feature is now online for you to readYou can also see their kickstarter style page and promotional video HERENice guys to speak to. Even after all this time, they’re still fighting the good fight of trying to get solid beats to Icelandic ears and minds, which is pretty much a constant battle at times.

Slowly but surely though, the message is getting though. Was at a local bar named Bakkus dancing last weekend, when out of the blue, DJ Maggi Lego started playing some really good Funky Bass beats from Roska Kicks and Snares! This took me back so much i ended up dancing till closing time!
