“It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you. Without a breakbeat to step to”… or something along those lines.

And this time they have breaks stalwart and uber producer, Beta, stepping into the booth for his Perth debut. Not to mention, Perth ex-pat Karl Sav in tow, for what will be his last Australian gig before heading States-side.
