Blurb from BBE:

“Yet another year has flown by, so as we take a moment to reflect and celebrate 21 glorious years of Barely Breaking Even, we’re excited to present our 2017 Staff Selections.

The last 12 months have seen iconic compilations packed with classic music: Al Kent’s stellar disco compendium ‘The Men In The Glass Booth’, Gabriele Poso’s percussion exploration ‘The Languages Of Tambores’, Mad Mats’ celebration of eclectism ‘Digging Beyond The Crates’ and IF Music’s second voyage in to the world of ‘Deep Jazz’, to name but a few. We’ve reissued classic material from NY salsa outfit The Orchestra Soledad and London jazz band Paz whilst continuing our partnership with DJ Amir to present a series of rare treasures from the catalogue of Detroit’s Strata label. 2017 has also seen a dizzying parade of original releases from the likes of Balearic house maestro Kiko Navarro, award winning US songwriter Mike City and rising Bulgarian soul star Ruth Koleva alongside label mainstays DJ Vadim, Inkswel, Chris Read and Sadar Bahar.

It’s simply not possible to say enough nice things about all the amazing artists we’ve worked with over the last year, so we’ll just let the music do the talking. Sit back and enjoy a snapshot of the last 12 months, as chosen by our staff members. Thanks for all your support and love in 2017; we wish you all peaceful and rejuvenating holidays. See you in 2018!”
