Vinyl LP pressing containing original, royalty-free breakbeats! PVD Breaks features 26 original drum breaks, all played live, recorded in different studios with a variety of mics and techniques. This collection is absolute must have for drummers, DJs and music producers. Pat Van Dyke is a drummer, composer, producer, and band leader. Equally comfortable behind the drum kit, as he is penning compositions at the Fender Rhodes, PVD balances the rhythmic intensity of true-school hip hop with the rich harmony and refreshing subtlety of jazz. Drawing from a diverse palette of sounds, Pat's music features live instrumentation alongside analog synthesizers, lush horns, and vintage keyboards, straddling the boundaries of electronic music, jazz, and golden era hip-hop. Pat's music has been praised by tastemakers and DJs around the globe as well as being featured on such TV networks as FOX, NBC, MTV, VH1, and Comedy Central, and providing the soundtrack to viral videos from the likes of VICE Magazine and Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
