"Hello friends, my name is Tino. Do you like the drums? Great man! I love them!
" As CEO and principal artist, Tino launched [Tino Corp] the label with a series of instructional albums called Tino's Breaks, which teach a new style of drumming with each installment.
Straight from their factory
to you, six volumes of breaks, from mambo (YT)
and dub (YT)
, to hallowe'en music (YT)
and Christmas dubs (Grooveshark)
.No one puts the "fun" in functional like Tino, the action-figure alter ego of breakbeat mavens Ben Stokes (DHS), Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto), and Mike Powell (Bo Square), who graces the covers of all Tino Corp. albums and gets the credit for the multifarious breaks and beats contained within. Although these albums are primarily intended for use as raw material by DJs, they are also all genuinely fun listening experiences. Unlike most breaks-and-beats collections, they develop themes and proceed more or less logically from track to track, just like real albums! Vol. 4 in the acclaimed Tino's Breaks series focuses on Cuban and Brazilian percussion, with lots of fun vocal samples and some virtuosic conga playing.
