The best party of the year - The International Breakbeat Awards - returns for 2015 to celebrate the best of beats and breaks in 2014, moving the awards show out of London for the first time to Manchester

MANCHESTER, UK – Thursday 15th January - With the London club scene in crisis, Breakspoll are excited to be taking the International Breakbeat Awards out of London for the first time, and on the road to Manchester, bringing the biggest breakbeat party of the year to the North.

Started in 2001, Breakspoll is the annual public vote to decide the best tracks, DJs, producers and events of 2014 from the breakbeat scene. Receiving millions of votes, over multiple categories, from music fans around the world, Breakspoll votes are open for submission from midday today at www.breakspoll.com. Voting is open for three weeks, closing on Friday 6th February.

For Breakspoll 2015, every confirmed vote will also be automatically entered in to a prize draw to win the ultimate personal production and listening package provided by Scan Pro Audio, including a pair of Audeze EL-8 headphones plus a Subpac S2 Tactile Bass Device, with a total value of over £800/$1000.

This years award categories have also been updated to reflect the evolving breaks scene, putting a larger emphasis on the music being created, with new categories including Best Recorded DJ Mix, focusing on mix sets given away for free on platforms like SoundCloud and MixCloud, as well as Best Free Track, highlighting tracks which may not be in sales charts due to be distributed free of charge.

After votes have been counted, category winners will be announced at the Awards party, which this year will be taking over the full three rooms of Sound Control, right in the heart of Manchester, where Breakspoll will be showcasing the best of breaks to a capacity crowd. Taking place on Saturday 7th March, the awards will be presented live on stage, hosted by High Rankin, at 11pm, surrounded by a full night of music.



Last years Breakspoll award winners included Stanton Warriors, Marten Hørger, Lady Waks, Deekline, Evan Gamble Lewis, and Slamboree.

Event organiser, Jimmy Brayks, commented: “After the closures of multiple London clubs, and with increasing pressure from councils and licensing committees to rid prime London areas of late night venues, we felt it was in the best interests of the party and breakbeat scene to move the party North, where the movement can find a new home in central Manchester. We’ve already had a great response from the decision, and we are really looking forward to bringing the biggest breaks party of the year to Sound Control.”

The voting and awards show could not happen without support from the fantastic companies who sponsor Breakspoll. Breakspoll 2015 is sponsored by Symphonic Distribution, Scan Pro Audio, Audeze, Subpac, Beatport and JunoDownload.

Tickets to see the awards being presented live complete with an all-star cast of superstar DJs and live acts are on sale now, at £15 advance.

Win tickets to the first big night of 2015, with Krossbow, Doctor Hooka and friends!


Let's throw ourselves into 2015 in fantastic funky, filthy style! And what better way to kick off another year of partying than by hitting the dancefloor with the mighty Krossbow and Funk and Filth favourites including Doctor Hooka, Leygo, Crashgroove, Psychotropic Frequencies and F-Block, with accompanying visuals by VJ Ultra as they bring the funk to Frome's New Venue!

This giant night of bass, breaks, funk and also filth is hitting Somerset on Feb 13th, and we have 2 tickets AND a Krossbow t-shirt up for grabs for one of you to win!

Click here to go straight there now!

Click here for the full details on the night.

For free music from all the guys playing on the night, read on further down this post!


Krossbow played arguably the best set of them all at last year's Breakspoll party, which is not easy when you consider the extent and quality of the line-up for the biggest night in the breaks calendar! They're taking on 2015 with the same attitude that they used to destroy 2014, and this night on 13th Feb looks set to give them a flying start!


Doctor in residence at Funk and Filth HQ, Doctor Hooka has been rehabilitating ravers and administering much needed shots of funk and doses of the most extreme filth in a truly professional manner! For those who haven't caught his sets at our London nights, this is the perfect chance to see the awesomeness you've been missing!


The man responsible for the best set that we danced to throughout the whole of 2014 will also be there on the 13th Feb! Leygo's set at our Summer Boat Party set the place OFF! So we're drooling to see what he's got for us next time!


DJ, Producer, Label Owner, Promoter, DJ Teacher . . . Crashgroove masters them all! Check out what the funkmeister has up his sleeve, you know it's going to be special!


F-Block has been blowing the socks off festival goers with his mixing and scratching onslaughts, so brace yourselves for his set on the 13th Feb! Gumshields and elbow pads may be needed!


Responsible for some of the fattest beats and bass across the south west, Psychotropic Frequencies will be bringing his unmistakable brand of funk to the decks to complete this devastatingly tasty line-up!
