2019 BBC Proms: The Breaks

Co-created with Chris Wheeler, this ongoing project explores the culture-defining music that has inspired the world of scratch DJs, hip hop and breakdancing since the 1970s.

At the 2019 BBC Proms, Jules arrangements sliced up and reimagined the iconic funk tracks that spawned breaking, and with the Heritage Orchestra behind him delivered an innovative and groundbreaking concert.

Special guests included live breaking crew Soul Mavericks, World DMC champion and UK turntable royalty Mr Switch, musical duo Madcon, and soul vocalists Alice Russell, Brendan Riley and Vula Malinga.

Jules continues to honour the global phenomenon of breakbeat culture with live dates planned in the near future.
