    Strictly speaking, different beasts (though there is crossover). But this
    release features mixes that specifically incorporate 2-step rhythms.

    I would venture to say - broken beat is more like acid jazz in that it
    describes an effect, a vibe, an array of potential elements, while 2-step is
    more like drum'n'bass in that there are certain formal, formulaic elements
    that define it.

    Anyone on this list that's been to the Co-op in London - ever heard any
    "proper" 2-step there? Just curious.
