"The New Resistance EP"

I have fallen quite far from the dub step tree as it is very hard to find good beats and interesting tracks now a days. This track catches my ear though with it's almost get up and brock out with your....well you get the picture type approach. It has all the wobbles, the angry lyrics, the dirty synth work, the thumpin' drums and atmospheric background noises in all the right places. If you want to induce an infectious spread of the highly contagious bass face, then this is the tune you probably want to drop. It is either going to make all the energetic dancers go off the wall (Joke Included Free Of Charge) or cause one hell of a fight. this track is mean and it means business and it is here to collect!

The Wrecka Track (Featuring Jantsen):
Are you ready with the 1-2 checka? Well if you are not then you should be. The Wrecka Track is mid-tempo madness hot from the Oven and delivered straight from the minds of BreakBeatBuddha & Jansten straight to your door in 30 minutes or less. Laced with classic hip-hop samples and super dirty synth lines, it is sure to take you "N 2 Deep.".....just don't let them convince you to go "Back To The Hotel" cause I hear it gets messy in there. The Wrecka Track is the selling point for me in this release as I have been abducted by the mid-tempo sound and forced into a groovy submission.

The above might not make a lot of sense to you if you did not listen to 90's hip-hop. If this applies to you then...This song is pure filth and all you really need to know in making your decision to purchase or not.

"Mind Bombin' [Debut Album]"

"Mind Bombin" is a nice mixture of glitchy breaks and heavy down-tempo with some good guest vocals/ MC work mixed over a sonic palette that very much leans towards the low end.

The tracks here ooze with ridiculously hefty bass and beats that completely embrace the digital realm of musical expression and totally ignore convention when melding their influences. I mean seriously, in theory its easy to think that combining hip-hop, dancehall, IDM glitch, digital funk, down-tempo and breakbeats would work, but in execution its no small feat. And 3B makes it look silly easy here.

BreakbeatBuddha's latest offering is a great attempt at interjecting a bit of social awareness into the dance scene via breakbeat and come-down-tempo. Mind Bombin presents the ideals of collective consciousness to crowds who, let's be honest here, sometimes have a difficult time even grasping its simpler, more marketable little brother ... PLUR. But too few have made the effort to positively influence dance culture and 3B has to be applauded in this regard.

The point here is made with a solid musical backdrop and playfully accessible titles like "Buddha Bounce" and "Sleezy Geeza". The tracks ably blend a large array of influences (musical and otherwise) into one very cohesive thump, and on the dancefloor the outcome is more than a good effort - its a good time.

As a whole, this album manifests its artist's passions and lets the message mix with the music and makes them both bump."

"The New Resistance EP"

Ispirazione di taglio glitch, ritmiche fratturate, bassi fondi ed atmosfere cinematiche, questa la ricetta per 'Hoodlum', produzione dubstep inframezzata da eteree digressioni. Nel solco maggiormente di cesure hip hop, 'The Wrecka Track', con Jantsen, midtempo anch'essa 'glicciata' e sufficientemente digitale che esce dalla fucina di Breakbeat Buddha (aka Anthony Traynor), artista che non dimentica le sue origini (nell'underground rave scene anglosassone) se pure proiettato adesso nell'area altrettanto 'sonica' della West Coast statunitense. Fresco del suo album d'esordio, 'Mind Bombin', anche in questo Ep offre prova di teoria e prassi musicale, non rinunciando a riferimenti controculturali e 'politici'. - Wicked Style - Italiano

"The New Resistance EP"

A much needed political banger in the scene. BreakBeatBuddha hails from the UK, currently residing in San Francisco where he is hollowing out a movement of collective and individual empowerment. Empathetically realizing the potential we have as individuals and how powerful of an effect we can have once we are united in that concept; people all over the world are banding together to push community and the dance scene to a whole new level. This EP justly titled “The New Resistance” is a reminder of that and a call for revolution.

“Hoodlum” starts out just as the name implies, dark and brooding, dropping into a dubstep stomper that he lends his style to generously. Shifting through multiple moods and phases, it keeps you on your toes , but maintains a distinct attitude throughout. You can tell this track has had great care and attention to detail. Every element is expertly crafted and honed, with a trademark style that will undeniably set new precedents in production.

“The Wrecka Track” is a midtempo breakbeat infusion of catchy bass lines , precise edits , and a dose of glitch thrown in for good measure. Starting off with a glitched out vocal scattered across a solid hip hop break it quickly drops into an infectious bassline that leads you through a voyage of relentlessly processed breaks and melodics. It drops several times each time letting you know he has complete control over every molecule of frequency. The sequence is flawless and leads up to the final drop that seals its fate. This track is just begging to be unleashed on large sound systems. Lending a hand in production on this one is up and coming producer Jantsen (Boulder, Keep an eye out.

2 tracks short, his second EP release leaves us craving more. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long as there is another EP scheduled for release on Breaks FM and a full album coming up on True Movement Recordings within the next few months.

With a strong philosophical backbone, this is music put out to help change the world, make waves, and genuinely help shift consciousness on a global scale. In 2008, BreakBeatBuddah is destined to make his mark on musical history. Don’t miss this Motha!

It's another dark and rainy night in the badlands of UK (circa 1989). An unsuspecting adolescent runs at breakneck speed across a rural field, drawn by subsonic bass frequencies towards his first warehouse party experience.

�It was exactly what I was looking for, but I just didn�t know (it) until I found it� says 3B, musing over his beginnings in the UK underground rave scene. "10 Thousand people at a renegade party and no one could stop us. We were was a revolution.�

Its this revolutionary fervor that fires 3B's desire to make music. But even amongst the tumultuous revelry of those years, he felt that something was missing. Some other dimension. Shortly thereafter, 3B turned his attention to Eastern philosophies and practices. It was here that he found that missing dimension which gave him a context with which to frame the love of freedom discovered in that warehouse. It was at this point that BreakBeatBuddha was born. �BreakBeatBuddha is not about a person, its an approach, a bigger way to look at things ...�

3B set to work on creating his own sound which could unite and synthesize genres, whilst reflecting the shifts and expansions in awareness that he saw in the world around him. �These are exciting times and its not just about the 9-5 or having a wicked weekend anymore. People want more than just a party. We want empowerment. We are asking questions about our individual power and the power we have as a collective. Its the next level, a conscious, empowered dance culture movement.�

He took his cues from artists Derrick May (Godfather of Detroit Techno), Erik B & Rakim, KRS 1, and later, D & B producers Dillinja and Goldie. 3B's first gigs saw him playing parties in London, Manchester, Birmingham, cutting his teeth on live sets with the likes of �Death in Vegas�, the �Capoeira Twins� and holding down a residency at Brighton�s infamous Zen Bar. It was a period of paying dues, as he reflects.

�I would travel hundreds of miles for a gig, without payment. Sleeping rough was a regular thing. But I just had to get out there and play."

Its now the mid-90's and the initial explosion of energy that characterized early rave culture gave way to bad attitude, bad drugs and Draconian governmental legislation. In search of a more liberated environment, 3B blazed a trail Stateside and immediately set to work making a name for himself on the world-renowned �Burning Man� scene, famous for its own unique brand of revolutionary hedonism.

By then, his signature sound had begun to take shape. The release of 3B's first track �Buddha Bounce� (True Movement) placed 3B firmly on the map of the West Coast Breaks scene. The track's stupendously fat hook and swanky mid-tempo step proved a hit in the States and abroad, even reaching prime time air play on BBC1's breakbeat show with Annie Nightingale. There was no turning back and 3B continued to concoct more winners in the studio, including �Dat Feelin�� (a playful hip-hop breaks collision), �Bounty Killa� (a darker venture into dancehall glitch-nastiness) and �Endurance�, undoubtedly one of the biggest tunes to emerge off the West Coast scene in 2006.

�A landmark moment for me was droppin' Endurance for the first time at Emerg-n-see in Ashland, Oregon ... to see the crowd just go OFF was amazing ... the sub-low on that track made the earth shake and set off car alarms half a mile away.�

3B embarked on a notorious body of remix and collaborative work, featuring artists KRS 1, Bassnectar, Busta Rhymes, Mala Rodriguez and Beenie Man. 2006 saw the release of his debut album �Mind Bombin� (True Movement Recordings), to truly cast his presence out onto the international stage. �Mind Bombin� was 3B's musical manifesto, combining extensive DJ experience with scathing social critique to successfully inject a bit of awareness into a scene traditionally apathetic to the bigger issues of the day. His latest musical offering is The New Resistance EP (True Movement Recordings), which features a dubsteps stomper, Hoodlum, and The Wrecka Track, a collaboration with Colorado-based glitch-hop producer Jantsen. 3B's music has truly evolved to the point of communicating beyond the narrow confines of genre, yet maintains a finger on the dance floor pulse. Its allegiance is with the street, unquestionably rugged and raw, but also engaged and sensitive to the deeper concerns of the modern world as they unfold.

2008 sees 3B touring throughout North America and Europe, releasing tracks alongside DJ Spooky, Talvin Singh, Transglobal Underground, Kraddy and SOTEG as well a number of solo projects, including the release of another full-length album later this year. Expect big things. 3B is now a regular feature on the North American gig circuit, playing to thousands across the US regularly. His signature sound is recognized internationally as an anthem to Cultural Resisters everywhere.
