ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Special FBC UPDATE: Download the new single"Still Shining" for free at www.positronicrecords.com Free MP3 download for limited time.-www.positronicrecords.com
The six-piece hip-hop/funk group Fast Breakin' Classics are veterans of the NYC underground hip-hop scene. Often compared to De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, the band plays real instruments, drawing upon late '60s and early '70s funk, soul, and R&B influences to create a cool nightclub-like atmosphere that overflows with pure energy. Pushing the boundaries of hip-hop, Fast Breakin' Classics combines old-school aesthetics with a courageous and outrageous look at the future of music.
Advance promo copies are receiving high praise in the U.K. "Startlingly good and consistently inventive," raved British music critic Adam Harrington of Whisperin & Hollerin. "The grooves pound with full force." Barry Andrews from the U.K.-based Review Centre praised Fast Breakin' Classics as "the new rulers of New York City, a hybrid of sweaty funk and old-school hip-hop with a dollop of vintage '60s-'70s music that opens uncharted musical avenues."
Completely devoid of hip-hop clichés, Heist City is relentless; giving listeners little pause as each hook-laden track smoothly segues into one another. Released on the independent label Positronic Records (http://www.positronicrecords.com), Heist City cleverly bends its retro influences into a progressive, individual vision that captures the group's unique and infectious live attack.

Chris Alongi

Awesome & truly refreshing! Appealing to any ear.
Great! Totally impressed. I am so glad someone suggested I take a listen. I am a huge hip hop and funk fan and I totally think FBC hit the nail on the head with their unique sound. It combines both hip hop and funk with the hints of a few other genres. And I hear you all play your own instruments. Kudos! Look forward to seeing you and hearing future music. Love lb4lb!

Sweet
These guys are hot! One of the best live hip hop groups in NYC. Track for track this disc is a gem. If you like The Roots, De La Soul or J5 buy this album.

From the first to the last beat, you'll be waiting with attentive expectation as these are the type of tracks you want to live with, drink in and zone out to. Both lyrically and musically there's more going on that you can absorb in one or two listens- a mark of excellent, above the norm hip hop. Weaving in everything from standard hip hop to jazz and blues, The Fast Breakin Classics have got one thing down- they have absolutely no problem putting together hard-hitting, juicy and substantial hip hop dishes, serving up commendable variety in all twelve tracks. Whether you eat, breathe and drink hip hop or can just barely stand it, "Heist City" is an album to take note of.
