Thundering forward we arrive at our 81st episode and what lies ahead is loud and direct as we present a live showcase from a London duo. Kidchameleon, a producer learning fast and delivering some killer cuts is joined by a long time friend and part time studio partner Casual Breakin’. Together they lay down a live session broadcast from Darkfloor HQ in south London dishing out their 140 jungle heavy bass.

Featured Guests

Finding his way from a farm in Suffolk to London to Nottingham and back to London,  KidChameleon‘s first release as a producer came on Hardcore Lives Records back in 2009. Everything Starts With Letters was his tribute to the old skool hardcore of yesteryear. Followed up with remixes for Definition:Breaks and Held II Ransom. Rather than develop a formula, the Kid likes to try something fresh with each new track, injecting where he can a slice of humour. I’ve been warned he’s not afraid of sheep noises.

Nurturing his style at On A Break after remixing Walking on Water by Enough Weapons,. 2011 is shaping up to be a productive year with three EPs lined up. His forays into jungle have caught the attention of the mighty Mulder.

the future is bright, the future is chameleon shaped

Casual Breakin’ (Jim to his Mum) started DJing (badly) way back when in ’92 alongside John Grief (the man responsible for Definition:Breaks). Grief was responsible for getting Jim getting into the developing jungle.

Breakin’ has played many an illegal rave, with regular appearance at established club nights Spectrum; Nottingham’s Detonate and Ambush. A stalwart on the award winning NSB Radio since the station’s very early days. Giving Chris Screwface some of his early airtime. Debuting breakbeat classics like as Flesh Eater.

When not gigging Breakin’ can be found spending his days in the Peckham Zoo Studio with KidChameleon.
