Kovacs started out its breakbeat life as a project called ‘Ebb’ back in 2004 with en ep on Cone Records and followed that up with a series of remixes for house label Midnight Recordings before a European act by the same name got signed to a major label, who politely informed our Ebb that it might be better to change names, so Kovacs was born.

The first kind of dance music Kovacs got into was the old hardcore and jungle scenes, but also with more downbeat influences from electro, hip hop and dub, the natural place to go was breaks, a style that at its best takes all the other forms of music and mashes it up into something completely new. Influenced directly by the sounds made across the broken beat spectrum from big chunky breaks to the twisted steps of new broken beat sounds while referencing beat and bass music of all kinds, Kovacs makes deep, rolling and twitchy numbers for late night floors.

This has been demonstrated in Kovacs’ release, from the early days of turning deep house tunes into deep, rolling breaks, through remixes for Ben & Lex and an original on WutEva Records (remixed by Kickflip) to this year, which sees a return to breaks after a sabbatical, with releases on Mesmer’s Scarcity Records.
