The Disc Breaks guest mix series is stoked to be bringing you the launch of a great new label from Romanian breakbeat superstar Mesmer, Scarcity Records !
I’ve been a big fan of Mesmer’s work for a while now and it’s been great seeing his tunes reach a wider and wider audience, he definitely has his own style and one that seems to snag the minds of a lot of the breakbeat crew. When I then heard he was going to launch a label I got very excited, what angle would it take, who would be on it? Then I started getting the cheeky previews and damn it’s gonna be good, if not great. The breadth of artists and styles he has encompassed mimics his own style of pushing forward thinking music with a soul and a groove and is a testament to the respect Mesmer receives from the breakbeat community.
big tings I tells ya
“Scarcity is the problem of infinite human needs and wants, in a world of finite resources. Society has insufficient productive resources to fulfill those wants and needs. In biology, scarcity can refer to the uncommonness or rarity of certain species. Such species are often protected in order to prevent extinction.”
Scarcity was initiated by Romanian breakbeat producer Mesmer with the intention of taking a modern approach to the old-school sound, to modernize the classic breakbeat sound.
With an eclectic view, Scarcity will drop progressive breaks and tech house tunes for the dance floors worldwide while maintaining a catalogue of productions that sets a standard of quality.
If you like your beats dipped in lush melodies, acidic hooks and thunderous basslines, then this is a label worthy of your attention.
With planned releases and remixes from some of breakbeat’s biggest artists such as BETA, The Peepshow Owners, Neztic, Johan Soh, Stefan Anion, Mesmer and many others, Scarcity is surely set to establish itself as a quality breaks label.
Our releases will stay true to our belief that breaks is powerful yet deep, making your mind and soul throb.
