We Release Pakalolo Battle Breaks in 1999 only on Vinyl in two volumes Volume 1 Static Breaks and Volume 2 Tranz . Allot has happened in the years when we first released the breakbeats there was a great buzz in the early days of the internet 99′ . we took to a indie distribution and release 2000 copies 1800 of them were stolen by the company that was sold at the time with no way to get the records back. We shelved the project and had to move on. With Records being collectable We noticed them popping up online in the recent year for as much as $30 bucks for a set as they were sold as a pair.
