For the loyal and expanding audience of hungry producers and DJ's worldwide, Redefinition Records' latest contribution entitled "Breaks with Mistakes" is the ideal tool for sample based artists looking for fresh & unique drums to add to their creativity. Following in the footsteps of J-Zone's "Lunch Breaks" and Pat Van Dyke's, "PVD Breaks", this is for the serious beat lovers. Breaks with Mistakes features a whopping 39 brand new, exclusive, royalty-free drum breaks ready to be the driving force of your next hit. The sounds in this collection were performed by a live drummer (Redef’s own Earl Davis), recorded during impromptu sessions at studios in Los Angeles and Jersey City. Ranging in a variety of patterns, tones and tempos from 74 BPM to 118 BPM, Breaks with Mistakes retains the human feel and was created with the producer in mind. Whether you sample to loop or chop, this will answer the call and intentionally, all the breaks here focus on kick, snare, hi hat, ride cymbal and the occasional tambourine with minimal drum fills and no toms.

The entire record was curated, mixed and mastered by veteran Hip Hop producer/former House of Hitz engineer K-Def from several hours of drum sessions. Only the best material made the cut; making it instantly useful in your next production. K-Def also chose to minimize effects such as reverb in way that gives users more freedom to control and color their own sound, allowing producers to easily develop new character from the punchy & dry hits. Though this the perfect record, the imperfect title is a call to the loose drumming and spontaneous grooves played by the drummer. Our philosophy on drums is, "If it's broken, don't try to fix it" and the end results are some of the most natural breakbeats you can get your hands on at a budget friendly price. These are beats you just can't beat … not buying Breaks With Mistakes is a mistake in itself!
