DJ WOO – Raske Rytmer – breakcore and experimental mix

DJ WOO is one of my favorite Norwegian DJs (might even be my number 1) as he spins the types of music I love, dubstep, breakcore, jungle, old school and drum&bass. The first time I saw him was in Bergen where he played the same night as Kid 606. WOO totally blew me away when he played my fave track at the moment; Aaron Spectre – Look Out Fi Liar.
Here is a mix from him that he made for the club concept Raske Rytmer (Fast Rythms) that was supposed to be released on Healthy Boy. It consists mainly of unreleased breakcore and similar music from artists that he has played with the last few years. Lots of cool stuff in this mix including tracks from Kamerat Tord, Donna Summer, DJ C, Aaron Spectre, Ars Dada and many more. DJ WOO has promised to make an exclusive mix for Core News which I’m looking forward to!!

What happened to breakcore? [Core News Comment]

A couple of years ago breakcore was my favorite genre that I couldn’t stop listening to. Breakcore felt fresh, it was full of energy and was even a tad original. I loved checking out the latest Venetian Snares album, everything from the Death$ucker label and could dance my ass off if breakcore was played out in clubs.

But recently I hardly ever listen to breakcore. When a track comes on my mp3-player I just skip it and the thought of dancing to breakcore sounds stressful.

I don’t think I’m the only one with a lack of interest in breakcore. Lots of producers and labels have turned their focus elsewhere and I hardly ever see the music being played in clubs.

Why have there been such a downturn for the core?
There are a few highly skilled artists who manage to churn out good breakcore tunes, but at the height of the “breakcore era” we saw tons of bedroom artists emerging. This was great and all, but for some reason I got really bored with breakcore at this time. Even the big artists couldn’t get my start nodding. To me it seemed like breakcore had totally stalled and becoming bit of a parody of itself.
At the same time I had fallen deeply in love with dubstep and I find that dubstep has a much broader sound spectrum compared to the narrower spectrum in breakcore. This keep the dubstep sound fresh even after the genre has matured, while breakcore rehashes the same old sound with little variation.
To me breakcore has a bleak future, but it would be cool if it developed into something else..

What do you think about the state of breakcore?

Here is a free breakcore release on the record label Dtrash Records. The release is called Subvert Punx 4 Way Split and contains tracks by Distonn, Clip, Disbreakz and Midi Fister.
Pretty experimental breakcore craziness. Here is what the label got to say:
“4 punx from all over the world (Distonn/Russia vs. Clip/Belarus vs.
Midi Fister/USA vs. Disbreakz/Croatia) decided to make a record/split
featuring their vision of subversive breaks.
To spice things up, the record cover was drawn by Simon Gane, which
makes this record 100% underground.
Subvert glitchy IDM jungle breakz meet punk diy vibe. This is
