Kultur & Colombo

Kultur & Colombo, two experienced producers of Spanish Breaks scene, join forces to give the best of themselves in a project initiated in 2006. Advocates of authentic Breaks movement, cool sounds and a varied musical spectrum, this duo is here to offer handy rhythms for everyone, far away from any underground curtain that serves to disadvantage the global Breaks scene.

Separately, both components have already obtained many successes in their country. Kultur (real name Francisco Gil) is the instigator of the Spanish Breaks Scene, he started as Breaks DJ in 1995, getting in 2 years to turn this genre in the favorite of the ravers in Southern Spain, through the radio show “Mundo Evassion”, in which he was a collaborator from a state broadcaster.

Pioneer in creating labels purely of Breaks in Spain (“Weekend: Breaks records.” 1999) it was in 2001 when he launched what would be his first own label “Reflexmusik”, which later would have two sub-labels “Zeroes & Ones” and “Tum Tum Pak”. Through these labels he published more than 60 releases (vinyl 12″s, mixed CDs), betting on young producers in the country.

In 2002 he appeared in front of 14,000 Breaks ravers in the biggest event of this kind of music in the world, the 5th Anniversary of “Mundo Evassion” (Málaga, Spain). He actually manages 3 new labels dedicated to launch digital releases: “Metamorph Muzik”, “Logico Beatz” and “Kultura Breakz”, latter share the name with his own weekly radio program, broadcast on iBreaks Radio every Thursday from 22h to 00h (UK time).

The other component of the project, Colombo (real name Alex Rojo), is a promising Spanish producer, which has showing his worth and his abilities in his compositions since 2000. He has published several productions under the label “Reflexmusik” getting a tremendous success and a great acceptance by DJs and Breakers.

From 2006 Kultur & Colombo released many great tracks such as “Babe“, “Konflict“, “Stronger To My Beat“, plus some nice remixes on Hihat, Krapula Concept, Laurent Garnier, Merka, Robosapiens, Triple Agent and Valentina Lafuente. Colombo also released some solo records – “Throazhan” on Kultura Breaks, “Inzekt” on Metamorph Muzik and “Heep Hoop” on iBreaks.

In 2010 Kultur & Colombo delivered six tracks for “Kissing The Funk EP” for iBreaks Funk, distributed in three parts, first part contained tracks “Blow Me” and “1, 2, 3… Breakbeat“, second “Muzik” and “Take It On“, the third “The Good Times / Robotiko” was released on December 13th 2010 on Metamorph Muzik. “The Good Times” took number 1 spot in Beatport Breaks chart with “Robotiko” following a little behind.
