Back in 2004 clubs all over the Bay Area featured house, drum & bass, hip hop, some live acts, and occasionally this other sound bubbling up from the desert called Breakbeat. There were a dozen local crews spinning breaks but no dedicated focal point for this burgeoning genre. Until a new club opened in Potrero Hill with a mission to break ground and blaze trails: MIGHTY. MIGHTY BREAKS was created to attract the names, the fans, the dancers and the DJs to meet every 3rd Friday of the month for a deep dive into all things breakbeat. The party would combine some of the world’s biggest breaks acts with the local talent that kept the scene vibrant. Producers and DJs, the B-Boys and original breaks dance crews, and the Burning Man families all had a common ground to dance to the music they loved. This community wasn’t very large, but the force and purity of the scene was so powerful that MIGHTY BREAKS attracted major labels in the US, UK, and Australia, including the seminal breakbeat label FINGER LICKIN. Over the years, these partnerships delivered some of the biggest names in dance music to visit Mighty Breaks. This success led to dozens of other Bay Area breaks parties, nights, and undergrounds, but MIGHTY BREAKS was the definitive monthly event for more than 5 years. The breaks lives on strong in niche communities around the world and is still very dear to the dancing hearts of the Bay Area. On September 9, we will reunite to celebrate the crews that built the scene, and feature two of the brightest stars of that era, Krafty Kuts and the Plump DJs.

We’re proud to host our first Mighty Breaks reunion at 1015 Folsom on Friday September 9th.
