I just wanted to thank the guys from Fraktured (https://www.facebook.com/frakturedpdx/)
for having me to shoot their show. And, reviving my love of breaks in me. The family vibe at this event was so thick, you could have sliced it with butter. The music was so good you could not stand to even sit down for more than five minutes before you were up and moving again.
In a city like Portland where the music in the clubs sometimes seems heavy on the dubstep and bass music genre, Fraktured is an event where you get to travel back to a time where those styles were born from. Breakbeat is alive and well. This music from all the DJ’s was an eclectic mix of old-school tracks. Timeless ones I personally heard in a decade infused with current hits that are just as inventive and fresh.
The headliners were, The Freestylers from the U.K (https://soundcloud.com/freestylers)
With support from local heavy hitters,
Dot Diggler vs Dylan Malone (https://m.soundcloud.com/dylan_malone)
ClokWork vs Mode 4
Killa k ( https://m.mixcloud.com/KillaKoala/ )
and JoyRide (Fraktured PDX/ Icedbreaks Entertainment).
Folks showed up ready to dance, some with led loops and spinning poi. The dance floor stayed full all night. It was a proper night. Frackture happened every month So keep on eye out their next event if you missed this one. If you love breakbeat as much as I do you don’t want to miss this event.
