Breakroom is a music style, originating from the underground scene in South East Asia. The name “Breakroom” is invented by Yipe Records to give the music we release a common base.
Why this name?
The local DJs, remixers and producers do not always use a clear definition, but often use the word “Breaks”, “Break Beat”, “Melody Break”, or “Break Mix” (if any!), but not in the same sense this word is used in the West. It is often local beats originating in the local music culture. On top of that, pitched energetic synthesizers are often used, which are a bit similar to Western Hard Style or Big Room EDM. Added in, often inciting shouts and chopped up/pitched vocals – and then you have it: “breaks” + “big room” = “Breakroom” – a suitable name for this highly energetic, anarchistic, testestorone pumping, ass kicking, club smashing, rubber wheel burnout music style!
Yipe's Breakroom Sessions are mixes that contain both sourced music where we managed to identify the original producer, and unsourced music where the origin of the music can not be tracked. There are different variations of breakroom, with different tempo and sound. We try to match or mix each Breakroom Session release in a good way, and in the same tempo. Duration will be 10-15 minutes.
We plan to sign contracts with the best producer and remixer talents and release individual full tracks in the breakroom style. Watch out!
Yipe's Breakroom Sessions supports local DJs and music producers. The scene is unorganized, with many producers making music and sound bites, uploading the music for free to Youtube or Soundcloud, and then it is re-used, altered, remixed by other remixers, that also upload that new version. Because of this, sound quality and music files can deter over time which we try to repair. But it is fresh, energetic and the love of music is coming out of your speakers full throttle, and that's what we like on Yipe!
Yipe is connecting the dots, repairing damaged soundbites using machine learning technology, doing mastering, sound/level/tempo matching, adding music components to glue things together, and then releases the result to the world, because we think more people should know about this music!
