Chris Read has always been one of my favourite local heroes. I have known him for 10 years or so and i can only class him as one of the good guys, a pal and great DJ. He dj'd many of our parties back in the day and never failed to educate us and the crowd. He deservedly picked up a slot on BBC radio 1xtra and since then he has released many of his own productions. He has played all over the world and released various quality mixtapes through his own website. He has just released a new mixtape as part of the BBE mixtape competition. See the links below and ch ch check him out, he's dangerous!!!
BBE was founded on a love of good music, and that's what they've strived to give you ever since. The line-up of artists that have released their music includes such greats as Jazzy Jeff, Marley Marl, DJ Vadim, DJ Spinna, Keb Darge, Paul Weller and Cut Chemist, Alice Smith and Masters at Work. Spanning 14 long years, Barely Breaking Even records has not sought publicity, it's not a label that has wallowed in its self, but has focussed on the music.
We're proud to shine the spotlight on BBE, and in association with Juno Download and WhoSampled.com we welcome DJ's across the world to browse the BBE catalogue and create a mix to upload on Mixcloud. The winner's mix will be released on BBE later in the year - BBE.
