You know what word comes next. Everyone does. I even caught my granny singing this line as she was stirring up a pot of matzo ball soup the other night. "Jack" was this summer's surprise dance anthem, and it propelled Breach, aka Benjamin Westbeech, to worldwide acclaim (while causing a whole lot of bumping and grinding all over the damn place).
However, if you thought Breach was a one-hit wonder, you're as wrong as Mitt Romney with a bong. The Bristol-born producer's career has been a string of triumphs—his debut album, Welcome to the Best Years of Your Life, was released on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label, he's performed live with Bjork and Paul McCartney, and his label Naked Naked is responsible for soulful house tracks by the likes of Dusky and Midland.
Breach was recently granted the honor of creating the latest installment of the legendary DJ-Kicks mix series, joining an elite circle that includes Carl Craig, DJ Cam, and Four Tet. Breach did not disappoint, throwing down a deep, groovy and all-around vibey collection with players like Dusky, Winx and Fred P. This puppy is also loaded with a brand new track from Breach himself entitled "Beroving."
Breach's DJ-Kicks was released November 11, but if you're too broke or lazy to pick up a copy, Breach hooked us up with a twenty minute mix of all the highlights. What a guy!
Breach's DJ-Kicks is available now in the UK and on 11/26 in the US....Pre-order your copy here.
