Vinyl LP pressing. PVD Breaks Vol. 2 picks up where Vol. 1 left off: more essential breakbeats (royalty free no less!) for Producers and DJs. Simply stated this is a must have collection of original breakbeats played, recorded, and mixed by Pat. 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 or guitar, 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 such as Gilles Peterson, Bobbito Garcia, and DJ Spinna, 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. Along with a rotating cast of NYC's finest musicians, Pat has brought his unique LIVE blend of soul-jazz and organic hip-hop to packed houses at The Blue Note, S.O.B's, NJPAC, and The Roxy Hotel as well as other venues; large and small, throughout NYC and beyond.
