We welcome you to the 4th BB Survey, awarding and honoring the best of Breaks, Broken Beat, 808, 2 Step, DNB, Oldschool, Newschool and Bass Music to date. Breakbeat is a broad style of electronic or dance-oriented music which utilizes breaks, often sampled from earlier recordings in funk, jazz, and R&B, for the main rhythm. Breakbeats have been used in styles such as hip hop, jungle, drum and bass, hardcore, UK garage (including 2-step, breakstep and dubstep), and even pop and rock.
