Florida breaks

Florida breaks, also referred to as Florida breakbeat, Funky Breaks, and Tampa Breaks, is a genre of breakbeat music which, as the name suggests, is most popular in the areas around the US state of Florida. Florida breaks were popular in the club culture of the southeast US during the mid and late 90's to early 2000s. Its sound at that time was described as 'funky' and often included recognizable samples from 80's pop, funk, and hiphop. Its current sound has a lot in common with nu skool breaks although it is also influenced by other music popular in the same area such as freestyle, electro and Miami bass. More recently Floridians have taken to calling the genre "electro breaks" despite the lack of electro characteristics included in the tracks, but this is most likely due to the parallel electronic dance music sub-genre of electro bass being billed at many of the same events as Florida breaks.
