This, the fourth Rampage Teknikal, was the first edition where I added in some non-4/4 beats. The first two were strictly techno, and the third was half house, but for this one I used breaks and electro for the first eleven tracks before shifting over into techno and then building it up to a level that can only be described as very very banging by the end. Good times.

Nu-skool Breaks are a bit of a funny area, in that I tend to find the idea of them quite off-putting, but when I actually hear them I tend to enjoy them. I went through a brief phase of buying breaks back in 2004-2005, which this mix reflects, and I even did a full breaks mix called ‘Drop The Hammer 2’ which I will upload once I can find the mini-disc that I recorded it on (since the CD version I have has glitches on it). For this mix I used some fairly restrained breaks tracks that fit in well with the electro tracks. All in all, I think this mix worked out very well and was programmed nicely, considering that it accelerates from around 140 to 160 bpm. I hope you enjoy it!
