Radio station leaves broadcasting business

Sunday 15 August 2010, 6.14pm HKT


TWO HOURS AGO, I found out that I’ve become ‘one-radio-station-less’ because a favourite European radio station of mine has left the radio broadcasting scene.

iBreaks Radio <www.ibreaks.co.uk> broadcast its last show on 13th August from its London base. As of today, the website is still accessible and registered users still able to download the latest podcasts from the last seven days or so.

DJ Brendan “Bruno” Clay, who hosts the radio station’s regular The M Shift show from Sydney, posted a communique on the inthemix website that iBreaks “will no longer be pursuing the radio aspect of the business.” The communique said iBreaks instead will be concentrating on its record label business, which “is quite clearly the money spinner of the company”.

I’ve been listening to iBreaks Radio regularly almost from the day it started 3½ years ago. Its main window is on breakbeats and techno-type music. It broadcasts shows as live streams over the Internet as well as freely downloadable podcasts. Its regular DJs are from right across the whole of Europe and North America, and also from Japan and Australia.

I really liked this radio station. My favourite DJs have been DJ Kultur from Malaga in the south of Spain and JMekka, also from Spain. Another favourite is Slick Willy Dee, a Brighton-based DJ with a on-air reputation of using foul words and slightly clipsy guests.

So long, iBreaks, it’s been nice knowing you.
