Breaka gears up to release debut LP ‘We Move’
The record drops via his eponymous imprint on February 18
London’s Breaka is set to release his first full-length record, ‘We Move’ next month.
The 9-track LP features a handful of previously released tracks such as ‘Solaria’, ‘Mass Gathering’, and the title track, ‘We Move’, along with some unheard releases.
Coming via his own self-curated imprint of the same name, Breaka is due to drop his debut on February 18. “I’m releasing my first album, We Move!” the producer announced on Instagram today, January 17.
"While I'm always trying to bring something new to the table, the intention here was to do justice to my foundational genres," the producer told Resident Advisor on his latest record. "As my first long-form project, I also wanted 'We Move' to be a reflection of where I'm at personally."

The London-based artist - real name Charlie Baker - released his last record in May last year titled ‘Breaka 003’. The 4-track EP saw him team up with his brother, Bakey, and fellow garage and breaks producer Frazer Ray for a specially compiled juke-heavy record.
Shortly after, Breaka joined forces with Guava on Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section as part of the 2021-released ‘SHOUTS’ compilation, touted as one of Mixmag’s tracks of the year.
In August, the producer dropped his first contribution to the ‘We Move’ record titled ‘Mass Gathering’. “This tune came about in the dark depths of 2020,” Breaka posted on Instagram following the track’s release.
“But despite the loneliness etc. me and my friends (see pic) wrote this with euphoria & coming togetherness in mind. And this feels the right time to put it out into the world so it can still see a bit of summer ‘21 sunshine.”
