    As a musical device, breakbeats have been known and used for almost a hundred years. The name and modern meaning of the term traces its origins to the rise of hip hop in the United States during the 1980s. The electronic music genre is widely regarded as coming from the United Kingdom's early rave music. Breakbeats were added to the music to form what became known as breakbeat hardcore. However, breakbeats had been used by American hip hop DJs and turntablists in instrumental sets well before the advent of ravein the UK. It could be argued that the two scenes developed in parallel. Today, breakbeat lives on in the form of strong regional scenes in the US and UK. Breakbeats are frequently used in the production of such diverse music genres as hip hop, jungle or drum and bass, hardcore, UK garage (including 2-step, breakstep and dubstep). Since the 1990s, breakbeat has been used as background music to TV adverts. It also has been used in action film soundtracks.

    The most likely origin of the word "breakbeat" is the fact that the drum loops that were sampled occurred during a "break" in the music. a In the early 1990s, acid house artists and producers started using breakbeat samples in their music to create breakbeat hardcore. This was also calledrave music. The hardcore scene then diverged into sub-genres like jungle and drum and bass, which generally had a darker sound and focused more on complex sampled drum patterns. An example of this is Goldie's album Timeless.

    In the 1980s, breakbeat became an essential feature of many genres of breaks music which became popular within the global dance music scene, including big beat, nu skool breaks, acid breaks and Miami bass. DJs from a variety of genres work breaks tracks into their sets. This may occur because the tempoof breaks tracks (ranging from 110 to 150 beats per minute) means they can be readily mixed with these genres. Some artists well known for breakbeat include Afrika Bambaataa, Whodini, Davy DMX, Deekline, Dynamix II, 2 Live Crew, Cybotron, Nubreed, Hybrid, Phil K, Dirty Harry, NAPT, DJ Icey, Stanton Warriors, FreQ Nasty, Krafty Kuts, Freestylers, K-Swing, Soul Of Man, DJ Sharaz, Annie Nightingale and performance troupe Lucent Dossier Experience. Breakbeats are used in many hip hop, jungle and hardcoresongs. It can also be heard in other music, from popular music to background music in car, and jean commercials on the radio or TV.

    Big beat

    Big beat is a term employed since the mid-1990s by the British music press to describe much of the music by artists such as The Prodigy, Cut La Roc, Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method and Propellerheads.

    Acid breaks

    In electronic music, "acid breaks" is a fusion between breakbeat, and other forms of electronic dance music Its drum line usually mimics most breakbeat music, but lacks the distinctive kick drum of other forms of EDM. One of the earliest synthesizers to be employed in acid music was the Roland TB-303. In more recent times, artists such as Champion Breaks have started a resurgence of this sound, using mainly Amen breaks, Reese bass, and 303 acid linesto create energetic, and sometimes frenetic...

    I think we need a discussion on whether HIP HOP should be included in the breakbeat section, or AT LEAST in the electronic music section. Hip hop, to be hip hop has to be electronic. It also makes use of breakbeats. Any arguments like it has rappers/vocalists in it or doesnt always use breakbeats can also be made for drum'n'bass.....86.135.8.24711:13, 16 January 2007 (UTC) It should be mentioned yes, it also should be noted the BBoy Breakdancing, huge Ghettos blasters and rolled up cardboard youths of the 80s.

    Removed the following piece from the main article. Since it claims to be from a "modest magazine", it may be a copyright violation, although a preliminary Google search didn't find the source online. If the contributor to Wikipedia actually wrote the original article and/or the original author is submitting it under the GFDL, please indicate so here on this Talk page, together with some way for us to authenticate they are the author in question or that the author has permitted it's use under the GFDL. If the contribution is GFDL, it still needs a lot of work to become encyclopedic, it currently reads like a magazine opinion piece, in particular attention to our policy of neutral point of view. The first paragraph, in particular is completely out of place in an encyclopedia. Secondly it needs to have links to other articles. I will do this if I have time, but it would help out if the original submitter (or somebody else) could work on it before restoring it to the main text. Thanks....

    I believe there should be some of the more popular breakbeat artists mentioned here, most other musical genre pages list artists and I believe someone visiting this page would expect such a thing. Comments?--195.92.168.16315:50, 24 July 2005 (UTC) Why is this being claimed as a mid-90s genre? I was hearing stuff like the Prodigy and Sonz of a Loop da Loop Era described as breakbeat in 92 and 93, and the early "Toontown" and "Schizo" stuff was out in 91... You know, "hardcore". 1. This is correct. Hardcore (or breakbeat hardcore) was around in the early-1990s. I'd also watch calling breakbeat hardcore as "AKA rave music" on this article. It is only one component of "rave music" along with the vocal rave and Euro techno. Also, not everyone in the UK was calling breakbeat hardcore as "rave music" either. Such music was more connected with the south UK. --Revolt08:25, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

    I found the discussion very helpful, when compared to the initial Wiki on "Breakbeat". For readers who want basic information and less use of unfamiliar terminology, I offer this information on what a breakbeat actually is from a musical and historical standpoint. I agree with the idea of a 1974 explosion of breakbeat dancing, but musically the "breakbeat" goes back even further. The musical fiber of a breakbeat comes down to snare emphasis and overall tempo. A breatbeat is essentially a basic "rock 'n roll" beat played at a dance tempo. Over 95% of all breakbeats emphasize the snare on 2 and 4, using a 4/4 time signature. Just like many rock beats, the kick pattern usually remains fairly simple, sometimes introducing some syncopation. Historically, if one can track when drummers began slamming the snare on 2 and 4 at faster tempos, one can identify when the breakbeat was musically invented. This all happened when jazz drummers were told to perform with less "shuffle", to compliment...

    Having worked in dance music a few years back when breakbeat really started to take off, I would suggest that breaks and breakbeat have different origins - breaks coming out of the hip hop scene as described in the article whereas breakbeat came directly out of drum'n'bass, because it used a 'broken' beat (i.e. not the standard dance music 4/4 beat) but could be differentiated from drum'n'bass due to the lack of heavy bass elements common in d'n'b. I suggest a complete rewrite of this entry to reflect this. SupernautRemix17:51, 17 January 2007 (UTC) I agree, breakbeat has nothing to do with jazz or funk breaks. I wonder how wikipedia manages to get almost everything either wrong or unreadable. 1. Because people leave pointless comments like this instead of contributing. You don't like something, you have all the power to fix it! marnues (talk) 04:30, 20 June 2010 (UTC) Well for the same reason you are both wrong. Drum and Bass came WAY after breakbeats I am afraid. The ability to pr...

    The Breakcore article has no real sources, most of the article is POV and OR and the genre seems a very vague definition. I can find very little evidence of it's existance in any other sense than a slang word used to describe breakbeat and IDM music. I propose to merge it with Breakbeat. Discuss Here. --Neon white22:11, 9 October 2007 (UTC) As a breakcore dj and fan, i suggest you to get a documentary film called "notes on breakcore". http://www.breakcore.net/ You will see, that it is not only a slang term for breakbeat and IDM. --Break!fast.sk09:56, 13 October 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. The article does not have enough sources, there's no dispute that it is used in the naming of club nights etc, but there simply is very little evidence that it is condisered a genre and notable enough for its own page. What i'm actually proposing is a redirect as there is little verifiable info on the breakcore page to merge. If more sourced info becomes available it can be added to a section of the breakbe...

    There are a number of articles that have no sources and lack in notabilty that could easily be contained in this article under a 'sub genres' heading. I am proposing Breakcore, Broken beat, Florida breaks, Hardcore breaks, Nu skool breaks, Rave Breaks be merged here. Remember not every single sub genre, alternative term and neologism needs it's own article. --neon whitetalk16:35, 8 June 2008 (UTC) 1. Do you even know what you're talking about? Broken Beat, Breakcore, and Nu-Breaks/Florida Breaks are all notably distinct SCENES with indvidual histories... their fanbase does not really overlap AT ALL... and broken beat is so tenuously related to BREAKBEATS in general that it definitely needs its own article. 1. The fundamental difference is that this page is about the Breakbeat and its background and history rather than a page on genres. The genres listed (Breakcore, Broken beat, Florida breaks, Hardcore breaks, Nu skool breaks, Rave Breaks) all contain Breakbeats but it could easily...

    Broken Beat is far too related to House and Techno to be lumped into here. Whoever defined it as "organic" funk like Breakestra is just plain wrong, broken beat is more stuff like Recloose, Kuniyuki, Russ Gabriel, etc... it is actually quite SYNTHETIC although it does have "organic" elements... SEE HERE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_beat—Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.131.181.155 (talk) 05:58, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

    I think there should be a link at the top of this article or the article entitled Back beat, since they sound similar. This way people won't be confused. --Robo56 (talk) 22:47, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
