Breakbeat Lou

A Bronx Native, Louis “Breakbeat Lou” Flores is known as “your favorite DJ’s favorite DJ.” A record collector, music lover and historian, “BreakBeat” Lou was part of the growth of hip-hop throughout the 1980s and ’90s. He co-created Street Beat Records with the late Leonard “BreakBeat” Lenny Roberts, which released 25 compilation albums titled “Ultimate Breaks and Beats” (commonly abbreviated as UBB), from 1986 to 1991. The UBB series and its iconic Octopus logo have always been synonymous with the sound of hip-hop, preceding all of today’s digital “short uts” and has become the blueprint used by legendary producers and crate diggers interested in finding “the source.” He has been featured in “now then” magazine and on “The Sweet Spot”.
