New talent: Artem Zlobin

Hailing from the town of Yekaterinburg in Russia, Artem Zlobin is a relatively new name to the scene but his tracks abound of mysterious melodies and wonderful ideas combined with really tight beats and growling basslines brilliantly put into practice with an accuracy of a german tank engineer.

ROS - Snowfall

Big tune from ROS again! Original is uplifting big room progressive breaks with nice squelchy melodies and massive pads. Top work indeed! And a proper deep wobbly breakstep remix that's got Mesmer written all over it, which is never a bad thing.

Kovacs - Nanobots

Kovacs making breaks with big bass and usually an acid line or two. Add some influences from jungle, funk, hip hop and house and you get the Kovacs sound, big warm bass, laid back ambient twists and stripped down drums.

Mesmer - Stereo Rainbow

Mesmer turns in a deceptively subtle, deep yet rolling piece of a breakbeat tune. Legendary remixes from the likes of EK, Aeron Aether and Vibromaster plus a BONUS re-rub of the original by Mesmer himself!
27 Aug, 2010


Starpunk is an Electro Breaks duo from Georgia. Their debut single called "Freedom" is a nice electro beats driven affair with a tasty LFO synth sounding anthem and georgian public speech vocal samples at times.

Rogue & Jah

Dawbs joins Mesmer and together they rock the hot sand on the island beach with a nice and groovy Dub influenced Breaks tune with a strong live feel. Felix Stone spreads good vibes allover with his chilled breakstep number while BreakZhead provides a real tearout-ish bass heavy monster!

Parallax Breakz - Valour

Parallax Breakz, Ukraine's finest in breakbeat, has had at least one track on every gig Mesmer had for the last couple of years, so his arrival at Scarcity is no surprise for us. With an original as lush, bass driving and beats rolling as “Valour”, we just could not resist!

Tetris - Single of the Week!

Back in the day, it was Brits such as PMT and Hybrid who ruled the roost when it came to progressive breaks. These days it's the eastern Europeans who are at the forefront, with Romania's Mesmer one of the leading lights of the scene.

Beta vs Mesmer - Tetris
