BR Instrumentals, sometimes written Being Ridden Instrumentals, is an album by Cex. It is an album of instrumentals from its counterpart Being Ridden. It is his second album to move away from a straight ahead electronic music sounds and endulge in a more hip-hop based music, sans with rapping by Cex that can be found on Being Ridden.

The album cover is a parody of David Bowie's album cover for his album "Heroes".

The main difference between Being Ridden and BR Instrumentals, except for the duct tape covering Kidwell's mouth, is the track listing. Every track from BR Instrumentals is featured on Being Ridden except My Hands Switched With Mannequin Hands, Bad Girls and M Ren Dvine. These tracks only appear on Being Ridden and are replaced by Stamina, Outher Countries and Nevermind. It is also interesting to note that the three songs are on track 7, 10 and 13 on both albums.

An instrumental version of Stamina appears on the Venetian Snares album 2370894.
