Spain's finest Colombo follows up his Big-Beat inspired 2012 album "Abandoned Factory" with "Station 21", our final release for 2013.

Colombo (Alejandro to his mum) takes us on a journey back to the early 2000s and it's burgeoning "nuskool breaks" scene, the sound that's become the breakbeat genre we know and love. The album is a love letter to the sounds, the beats, and the vibe of the breaks scene's roots.

The album opens with title track "Station 21" with it's skippy beats and warped bassline, then elevates to higher, more club-friendly heights with the acid-fuelled "Bluish". Colombo keeps a contemporary feel to the album too with the inclusion of "Sponging" and the dirty and driving "Drop It".

There's plenty of deeper cuts here too with the percussive, groove-laden "Four Strokes" and low-end heavy "Destruction". Tracks like "Nu-skooling" and "Kinship" provide the more "nuskool" rollers here focussing on throbbing basslines and percussion, whilst "Induism" and "Takes The Physical" sounds like actual undiscovered classic gems from the early 2000s.

Big system tracks are well and truly present on the album too - anyone looking for something anthemic and ravey should head straight for "Come With Me" or "Classic Approach" for instant gratification via piano riffs, chopped up breakbeats and sirens galore.

"What's Up" and "Foreplay" explores Electro while final track "Personal Belongings" keeps the bpms lower but the energy high with a 110bpm finale.

This album pays homage to all things breakbeat in all it's many facets, and there's as much here to please new lovers of the genre, whilst being evocative of "the good old days" to original breaks fans.
