Break 12s

You'll find a selection of classic breaks on 12-inch singles, mostly disco breaks, the kind of tunes which were played in the original hip hop jams, usually with the DJ cutting two copies and an MC rapping over the top to get the people jumping. Bambaataa's Death Mix is a great example of this, where you can hear the MCs working the crowd and the DJs manipulating the breaks. We also have a few rock breaks on 12-inch. This has been one of the most popular sections of our lists over the years and while it may be a little thin at times this is because these records are hard to find and even harder to hold on to.
