It seems to happen more often than not. A visit to YouTube for one thing turns rather quickly into being sucked into a vortex of videos you weren’t even looking for. It happened the other night when an unexpected introduction to Break Masta Jam ’s channel resulted in the belated discovery of these various blends, remixes, and original productions from the Break Masta himself. When the ingredients are B-movies, ‘80s music, synths, drum machines, and obsession, the results can be quite fun.
