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.
