Get High[edit]

Would ATB's "Get High", from the album Dedicated, fall into this genre? The Jade Knight 20:16, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

i'm pretty sure that atb is BREAKBEAT (think bt or crystal method) which is really different stuff.

"Brokenbeat" or" broken beat"?[edit]

Why is the conjoined version, "brokenbeat", used? Google has 1,910,000 vs. 64,400 results against it. The Omniverse forum has also similar proportions of both versions usage. I guess it should be changed.

Plus, in this sentence: "One might also hear echos of Disco, 80's Rn'B (Shalimar, Prince), early Electronica (Kraftwerk), Hip-Hop (Planet Rock), 80s New Wave (Depeche Mode, New Order), House and Techno in Brokenbeat." is it correct that genre names are capitalized?

Plus, it's a shame that as I'm writing this, there's no article about Mark de Clive-Lowe. : ) 22:33, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Moreover, in interviews published on the broken'beat radio website, they consistently use the "broken beat" form. 17:53, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

there's also no specific mention of orin "afronaught" walters in the article--he's one of the primary "bugz in the attic" crew--he and phil asher (an affiliate of the "broken beat" scene) both come from house backgrounds.

My google search gives 1,360,000 to 156,000. Either way, though, it seems clear that "broken beat" is the more common. The Jade Knight 06:49, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Google and other search engines don't provide the answer because there will be repeat pages in any search. In other words google my have a million results from five websites - in theory. Best to look at what other organisations say, and the BBC's 1Xtra refers to broken beat [14]. As far as I'm aware, the music is derived from a beat that is broken - so I reckon it's correct as it is. If there's no article on Mark De Clive Lowe - fine start one. Escaper7 15:08, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Moved from article[edit]

This bunch of artists are not really broken beat producers.. For example the listed Japanese artists Kyoto Jazz Massive don't sound ANYTHING like Broken and in Japan their records are placed under "Crossover" whatever that is... DJ Mitsu the Beats are hip hop and when he DJs he is playing breaks... I could go on but will just say some of these records may get played alongside broken but definately the sound is very different...

This was removed:

In Europe, many musicians that are considered doing broken beats have their roots in late-nineties downtempo and electronic jazz (or nu-jazz), which makes it difficult to distinguish the usually harder broken beat sound. Across Europe, prominent Dutch artists include Dogdaze, Rednose Distrikt or the Flowriders, Hipster Wonkaz, (France), Forss (Sweden), Nuspirit Helsinki (Finland), Jazzanova, Trüby Trio, or artists on the Sonar Kollektiv, Tokyo Dawn or Compost record labels (Germany). In Japan, Jazztronik, Kyoto Jazz Massive, DJ Mitsu the Beats, or Hajime Yoshizawa are also prominent. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
