Here at Magik Bullet towers We like to think that we have our fingers on the very pulse of underground dance music…when we see stats like this, we feel quite smug.

Magik Bullet favourites Far Too Loud and Cornwall’s own Rektchordz (Playing in April) are currently #1 and #2 respectively on the worldwide Beatport.com breaks chart. This is fantastic news and we are really looking forward to their sets!

You can catch Far Too Loud at Magik Bullet on March 8th….

Cornwall has given us world class artists like Aphex Twin, Luke Vibert and Tom Middleton. Fast forward to 2008 and 22 year old Rektchordz has been making waves in Spain and the UK. He is one of the most in-demand british breakbeat DJs in Spain and the irony is that many people in the South West have hardly heard of him.

Jay Rektchordz was originally know for tearout breakbeat and had releases on Mechanoise and Breaks FM records. The tearout sound is huge in Spain with DJs often just playing a series of buildups and breakdowns. It seemed as if Spain was going through its rave period and this kind of music was the perfect soundtrack to that.

However in the past year or so Jay has started to embrace other sounds and has integrated them into his brand new sound. Jay’s attituded is “good music is good music” and prides himself on experimental sounds and new ideas to help push the scene into new and interesting directions. We hope to see Jay playing at Magik Bullet in the not too distant future, but in the meantime – enjoy this mix from DJ Derve’s iBreaks show.
