Over the course of seven years and over 70 releases from the acclaimed archival label the Numero Group, a fan began to create a mega-mix of his favourite loops, breaks, and vocal snippets, chopping them all up and piecing together an incredible musical narrative–a 40 minute, white label 12″ boot that was pressed and seeded to handful of DJs and producers.

Naturally, word got back to Numero, but instead of issuing the obvious cease and desist letter, the label decided to go one better. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so in a true nod to all fans out there, the Numero Group, via their Numbero imprint, is issuing “Eccentric Breaks & Beats” as an homage to the breaks and beats collections of yore, bootlegging their own bootleg, as it were.

It took some time and effort, but Numero was finally able to track down the creator of this essential collection, and delighted to discover that it was the apocryphal label and production team, Shoes, who have previously re-worked Moodyman, Al Green, Miles Davis, and dozens more.

Featuring over 50 tracks from some of the best artists associated with Numero, it’s both an essential turntable item and an intriguing musical puzzle.

The album Various (Shoes Presents)Eccentric Breaks & Beats” (Numero Group) is going to be released May 28, 2010.
