A new website aimed at bringing exposure to all areas of urban music has been launched at This website aims to bring the less publicised urban genres to the masses by broadcasting via its internet radio streams 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and via its internet forums. The site features music from several of the major urban music industries including Speed Garage, Bassline House, UK Garage, Funky House, Hip Hop and Hard Dance. Launched back in June last year the site has seen a steady increase in its popularity, attracting new listeners daily from all over the world.

Since launching, the site has received much acclaim throughout the industries it represents, being nominated for 2 industry awards for “best radio station” and “best internet forum” in the Kama Bassline Awards for its contribution to the scene, set to be announced on June 17th 2005.

Founder, Martin Egan, known as Maximum Grace within the scene says “we have always seen our role as being a central point for our listeners to receive news and information about the music they enjoy, whilst being able to listen to their favourite artists via our live radio streams”. Although still a relatively new site, Urban Breakz FM has managed to forge a good working relationship with many of the industries major players, including Reflective Music, Ecko Records , Gridlock’d Records and VibeRate

After operating a successful radio for just over 9 months, Urban Breakz is looking to expand into vinyl and record sales to provide their listeners with added value. This has resulted in being launched specialising in vinyl sales within the Speed Garage and Bassline House genres, as well as other major dance genres.

Future plans include holding live events throughout the country, allowing the relationship of Urban Breakz FM with its listeners to extend to the more conventional club experience. Plans are already in an advanced stage to hold our first event in Leeds, UK later this year featuring many of the stations DJ’s.
