The Ultimate Breaks & Beats series is a 25-volume collection of songs that serve as the backbone to the world of sampled music. Consisting of music released during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, this series has been done and redone; released and re-released.
Featured on the albums were tracks from 1966 to 1984 that included drum breaks. The albums found high popularity with hip hop producers, with the release of a new volume in the series usually leading to many various hip hop records featuring samples of the breaks.
The Ultimate Breaks & Beats series ceased around 1991- maybe not coincidentally, the same year Biz Markie was taken to court by Gilbert O'Sullivan over an uncleared sample. In its final years, the series hinted at a few of the changes rap production would go through in the ensuing decade: The 86-88 comps are heavy on funk and r&b, while those from 89-91 have a few more of the soul jazz sources (Lonnie Liston Smith, Tom Scott, Lou Donaldson) that would define much of East Coast rap at.
