Breaks Co-Op are back. Following the release of the New Zealand electronic benchmark album 'Roofers' in 1997, Zane Lowe (previously from Urban Disturbance and Hamish Clark decided to take far too long to make another record. While Zane went and sank his teeth into the UK media scene, Hamish wandered the earth like Kane from Kung - Fu. Forever mindful that they still had the musical bug, whenever the two met they would batter the sampler about in the hopes of replicating the sound of 'Roofers.'
Aware that people were starting to look sideways at them, they dug deep into their shared love of music and realized there was only one thing for it…live instrumentation! Having made this quantum leap they soon saw the future of the band lay in songs. This may seem obvious, but for two hip hop kids suckled on the breast of early nineties’ beats, putting yourself out there artistically (minus the posturing) took some getting used to.
Breaks Co-Op first debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Singles on 28 February 2005 with the song The Other Side. There are two entries by Breaks Co-Op in the charts.
