Froe, Gav and Merf make up the nu-skool breaks collective known as The Breakfastaz. They have been working together on a number of musical projects for several years and the wide ranging influences they collectively bring have helped to form their unique breakbeat sound.

With over 17 successful releases and remixes on respected breaks labels such as Passenger and Mob in little over 12 months, their offerings have received support and heavy rotation from scene stalwarts such as Plump DJs, The Freestylers, Tayo, Ali B, Meat Katie, Aquasky, Krafty Kuts, Deekline and even catching the ear of Seb Fontaine, highlighting the enormous impact they’ve had on the scene in such a short period of time. To back up their releases, the guys have been DJing everywhere from London to Spain to the United States and were also invited to do guest shows and interviews on BBC Radio 1 (Annie Nightingale), Xfm (Eddie Temple-Morris) and Kiss 100 (Tayo), accompanying their weekly shows on Pyrotechnic Radio (Fridays 3-5PM GMT - http://www.pyrotechnicradio.com) and on Breaks FM (Saturdays 6-8pmPM GMT - http://www.breaksfm.com).

Their hard work is already being recognised, with the guys being featured on the front cover of IDJ’s ‘Players Of The Year 2004’ December edition and recently winning Best Breakthrough Act at the Breakspoll World Breakbeat Awards 2005, as well as being nominated for the Best Producer award too.

The future is also looking bright for The Breakfastaz with imminent releases on Against The Grain and an album project looming large.

What the press say:

‘…there is no hotter act right now in the Breakbeat scene and considering how good everyone’s become lately, that really is saying something.’ - DJ Mag, April ‘04

‘The future of UK dance music is safe if the hands of these 3 West London boys!’ – Eddy Temple-Morris, XFM, Jan ‘05

‘With pinpoint dance-floor targeting and rough ’n’ tough production, The Breakfastaz have quickly become breakbeat hot property…’ – Knowledge, July ‘04

‘…The Breakfastaz fire the warning shots of this mobs arrival into the breakbeat premier league…’ – Knowledge, August ‘04

‘Although it’s been a good year for breaks generally, there’s been little in the way of shit-hot new talent coming through. There has, however, been one new name on the breaks circuit that will forever be connected with 2004; The Breakfastaz.’ – IDJ, December ‘04
