4TGANG - Breaks ‘N’ Pieces Vol. 14
Release Date: September 2021
Breaks ‘N’ Pieces turns in its fourteenth volume of killer breakbeat laced cuts, and this one is an absolute doozy from Roadkill co-founder and Manchester based producer 4TGang.
Following the releases of Sunset From The Garage, Needs and a killer remix of Subjoi, the emerging producer serves up six distinctive cuts that blend his liquid drum & bass influence with stripped back UKG tendencies and melodic textures.
The garage re-rise is well and truly on, and 4TGang is at its forefront with his minimal, stripped back approach. ‘From Another Garage’ makes use of ragga samples, bright synths and precise percussion for an afternoon groover. ‘All Just’ ventures into darker territory, it’s murky presence giving off rainy, Burial vibes.
‘Piano Vibes’ is set up to dominate every outside situated soundsystem with a cut of early evening, loungey 2-step, before ‘Unpopular’ slowly pushes down on the accelerator as the moon shows its face and breakbeats sound across the sky.
The jazz-focused, rolling breaks of ‘Where This Takes Me’ sounds like something you might hear being live performed in low-lit club in Peckham, before ‘Always Wanted More’ completely switches up the energy with pulsating, colourful cut of garage-house.
