BREAKERS mag #2 - Second Souffle
As written in the first edition of BREAKERS magazine: "This first edition is, like a beginner's Breaking set, built from a haphazard handling of the basics and a touch of creativity. Even more eager to create a unique object to match the beauty and grace of the movement, we redoubled our efforts to produce a second edition even richer in content and graphics. For this second edition, we have structured ourselves, we have worked together with graphic designers, translators, proofreaders, journalists, communication officers for 6 months to create an object that represents us at best. The 2nd edition is coming in February! In the contents of N°2 Discover luXe, aka Bboy Nasty Yass, aka the adopted child of the Bronx. Member of the Mighty Zulu Kingz, Rivers crew and rapper emeritus.

BREAKERS magazine Like the surf, snow and skate magazines that have been around for decades and have helped develop and democratize these cultures, it's time to put paper at the service of break. With the ambition to tell stories and archive history in a graphic, timeless and modern way, BREAKERS magazine goes to meet the actors and actresses of the Breaking culture to discuss and transmit their stories. BREAKERS magazine is a beautiful, bilingual, bi-annual book created by people who are passionate about the culture, and intended to reach as many people as possible to help them understand the human richness of Hip-hop. This book focuses on the actors of the culture, from dance to music, on the human and socio-educational stakes of Hip-hop, as well as on a lot of other subjects. Support BREAKERS magazine!

It is also a way to allow the Breaking culture to have its first independent paper magazine, to allow the editors to publish their articles and their lines of thought, to allow the actors of the culture to reach a wider public, to allow the future generations of Breakers to read stories, and History. Pre-ordering the magazine during this phase of participatory financing will also allow us, in an eco-responsible approach, to print the right number of magazines.
