Five years on from the last, BBE is proud to present the next instalment of Strange Breaks & Mr Thing. In this digital age the beating heart of modern R&B and hip-hop remains as vintage soul, funk and jazz. Like the previous volumes, Strange Breaks & Mr Thing III contains a collection of killer cutz; some you've probably never heard of, some which may make you go: "I recognize this sample!"… because it was once used as the backdrop for a classic Hip Hop track. If you liked the legendary "Strange Games" compilation series on BBE compiled by the likes of Kenny Dope & DJ Spinna, you'll love "Strange Breaks & Mr. Thing".
UK Hip-Hop producer and acclaimed DJ; Mr. Thing has been busier than ever circling the globe, filling dance floors as well as adding rare 45s to his ever growing collection now he’s shaing those nuggets with us.
Known worldwide as a DJ & turntablist Mr Thing is a name synonymous with Hip-Hop that always brings a smile to the faces of fans and promoters alike as they remember genius performances of impeccable skill. First touching the tables in 1987 he has been non-stop perfecting his art since and is now one of the worlds best. Touring the world with an understanding of records and music that is second to none, he always creates flawless and exciting sets mixing some of the rarest records with some of the best loved records ever heard with an apparently effortless ease honed after years of practice.
