Overview

The focal point of a concerted attempt by trance touchstone Bedrock to expand beyond its devoted base, Bedrock Breaks introduced DJ Hyper to those outside the nu breaks crowd he'd previously been associated with (his first two mix albums, both also from 2000, had appeared on Distinct'ive Breaks). Given a big push by his new label, DJ Hyper responded with a solid set of jumped-up breaks, definitely a kick up the ass compared to the increasingly staid sound of progressive trance. Opening slowly and smoothly with a gorgeous downtempo Ils track, he covers most of the biggest names -- if not always the best producers -- in the breaks movement: Rennie Pilgrem, Koma & Bones, John Creamer and Stephane K, Meat Katie, and Tipper. A few remixes by Hyper himself with veteran rerub artist Dylan Rhymes also perform well, and Tipper's smart enough to give plenty of space to ace remixers Plump DJ's, who remake Brother Love Dubs on the first disc and BT on the second. Highlights include the Jedi Knights-meets-"White Lines" flair of Meat Katie's "Future Abuse" and Pilgrem's suitably paranoid tribute to acid house, "A Place Called Acid, Pt. 2."
