Functional Breaks keep it South West again returning to Bath for the second full release on the label from Stabilizer, Stef's latest is a two steppy Seven - Spoon Wizard* - Believe Or Suffer breaks tune with another of his trade mark vocal samples.
Spoon Wizard has just finished his soon to be released debut album 'Believe or Suffer' and drops in another of his brooding building funky mixes. Blue Effect has their first full release on Functional Breaks and they carry on with their take on the deeper side of the breaks sound. Mixes from the ever regular Spoon Wizard who has finished his album project 'Believe or Suffer' which will be seeing a full release in the New Year and from Stabilizer who takes us on a Seven - Spoon Wizard* - Believe Or Suffer tip giving the package something a little different than his recent releases for us and Plastic Raygun.
Three days in the studio with Johnny, Kimmi owners of Freakin Music and Oscar and the first collaboration between Freakin Music and Functional Breaks is ready to rock the dancefloors of the world in the shape of 'G13' Mixes come from Functional Break's Spoon Wizard who funks the tune up.

Very groovy indeed. The Phantom Beats provide one of the other mixes, with their growling basslines that they have become well known for, driving the track to a new level. The Spoon Wizard, taking time out from working on his upcoming "Believe or When Youre Smiling - Frank Sinatra - The Very Best Of album, provides the second mix.
One year on and Functional Breaks are set to release the fifth single on the label and the third single from the Spoon Wizard 'Me and Spoonice' is the second track from The Spoon Wizard to feature local rapper Neil and is to be included on the forthcoming album from The Spoon Wizard which is due in the spring.
With a blinding breakbeat mix from Spoon Wizard, an artist signed to Exeter UK based Functional Breaks, the horror B-movie samples get Život Je Lep (Hayat Güzel) - Hanka* - Što Svaka Žena Sanja pretty quickly on the other tracks, they fit perfectly into Spoon Wizard's eerie late-nite breaks mix, his best production to date and Seven - Spoon Wizard* - Believe Or Suffer the best track on this 12".
Spooky sounds punctuated by lovely acid tweaks set the mood before a devious nu skool styled bassline is let loose to cause havoc on the dancefloor - a killer track!
Phantom Beats are again on remix duty, this mix being their first release after their own 'Growler'. Pantaloon has been written and produced by Exeter based producer The Spoon Wizard AKA Graham Gray in his home based studio and is the first tune to be produced by him in over twelve months after a break from production after getting bored with the hard house material that he had been writing. As well as writing music for the dance floor, The Spoon Wizard has also authored tunes for other platforms, including computer games and fruit machines.
