Wholy crap it's that time of year again...for Breakspoll. For those of you that are not familiar with this, or maybe even those that are, Breakspoll is a poll, and so much more! It's a kick ass party based in the UK (to which I have never been) which has an awards component to it based on he mac daddy of (I believe) fan based polls for the broken beat community. Unlike the Beatport tops, which are awesome in their own way, Breakspoll is based on fan votes. I've been trying to go to the party for years, and finally got the ticket and time to make it happen! So Boom!
Beyond the party, the team behind Breakspoll has anchored the awareness of who's who and WTF is going on in the scene for 10+ years. If you are new to the broken beat, their website is an awesome jump off for the curious or seasoned EDM/Breaks fan to discover past, present, and future of the genre. I'd say head over to their website for the history, but they just popped up a new landing page (minus the in depth pages)...but you can at least hop on the email list, and stay tuned. If that's not your thing...stay tuned and I'll recap my journey for ya as we roll toward the show on March 7th in Manchester @ Sound Control! Boom!
