Some producers rely on special EFX, for others it is there programming Geekness that prevails. It has become a highly technical programming genre that does NOT go against musical theory but shows that jumping to and from differnt time signatures is ridiculusly possible with a Midi or computer Sequencer. the human body cannot accelerate nor stop at the ratio of these extreme rates without damaging tissue. Many Non DJ's call this style Drill and Bass but that style is danceable, TOO head Nodable and friendly.
While Breakcore is definitely not ONLY organized around the cutting and distortion of the Yemen Break, it is a key to defining the genre. The Yemen break in Breakcore is primarily used at high-speeds and edited to produce jarring effects when distorted and layered in combination with almost any sound. This particular drum-break sound characterizes many breakcore songs and is still used as a key factor to define the sound.
Among the many types of music now being spread online, perhaps Breakcore is the most fascinating to observe in regard to its online diffusion. Since the genre as a whole still is developing and growing rapidly, the music itself is largely downloaded via peer-to-peer networks, and discussed on internet forums, although Alec Empire expressed dissastisfaction with mp3s, stating that they do not posess the correct Riot Frequencies. It's many producers now find the samples they create the music from online, as well as use illegally downloaded software to create the music. Whereas the early days of Breakcore were based in select urban cities, the genre now has no geographical center. The music itself tends to reflect this multiplicity of media diffusion itself (as already mentioned) by incorporating so many different forms of music all hacked together to form breakcore. It remains a relatively small genre, but compared to its size prior to the 1990s web boom, it continues to grow substantially.
