Breakin’ Bread is a London based funk and hip hop collective that supports all elements of Funk and Hip Hop culture.
DJ Skeg and DJ Rob Life have been running the Breakin Bread club night and record label since 1998, promoting the nights, signing artists, putting out records, playing countless gigs and festivals, the whole shebang.
Breakin Bread started in a pub in Brixton. As soon as heads heard about the all elements and funk combination that BB was pushing they started coming down in their droves. Breakin Bread soon had to move venue and went first to Jax under London Bridge and then since 2003 it’s been at The Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel.
Skeg and Rob Life became friends in their early teens due to a love of hip hop. They are both record collectors and have an interest in all elements of a musical scene. As a result it wasn’t long before the boys started releasing their own records and in 2000 the Breakin Bread Record Label was born.
The initial intention of the record label was to transfer the vibe of the club onto a recorded format. It soon became clear that a lot of people wanted to hear our take on funk and hip hop and the label has now grown to a level where our music is distributed all over the world to great critical acclaim.

The initial releases were 7”s that kept a crucial link to the 70’s funk that gave birth to hip hop. They then focused on releasing a series of hip hop 12”s as well as more 7”s. And recently they have released 2 full length albums from Ghost and Natural Self.
