Back again with another top notch Disc Breaks guest mix – this week from rising star at the forefront of the Eastern breakbeat invasion – Parallax Breakz! I first heard about Parallax Breakz through their single ‘Vulture’ released on Bass Reflections, it was/is a quality slab of deep driving breakbeat that has been a permanent fixture in my sets since. After that, they continued with a flurry of releases and remixes all with the same deepness and all quality. You might say I’m a bit of a fan
I was stoked when he agreed to do an exclusive mix for my Disc Breaks show and what he’s sent through is a showcase of fresh Parallax Breakz tunes and remixes – most of which you’ll have never heard before, so make sure you catch this, it’s gonna be wicked!

Parallax Breakz – Ukrainian breakbeat project of Alexander Zhikharev. Sound of PB is breakbeat with influences of drum’n’bass, trance and techno. Since 1999 the artist has been involved into making of music. From 2002 to summer of 2008 he participated in several drum’n’bass projects. Results of this mutual work – 3 CD albums, hundreds of tracks, lots of releases and participation in parties & festivals over Ukraine & Russia, play on stage with well-known world d’n’b artists.
In summer 2008 author of Parallax Breakz had his first digital release “Parallax Breakz – Sacrifice” on a Kiev label “Don’t Panic rec.”.

At this moment Parallax Breakz is working on creation of his own digital label “RUNE recordings” and soon there will be plenty interesting psy-prog & atmo breaks, psybreaks releases from him and his friends.
