Barely Breaking Even began in 1993 when Peter Adarkwah and Ben Jolly were discussing music and discovered a shared interest in diverse, eclectic sounds covering all genres – from old scratchy Brazilian grooves, through 70s funk, via jazz fusion, hip-hop and soul to newer garage, disco and techno music.

Pete had been DJing at friends' parties for several years and had just graduated to his first gig on the club scene. First and foremost a music lover and collector Pete had discovered a previously unknown aptitude when he started spinning the tunes. They decided to promote a night where the music that was played would not be restricted as it was in other clubs – the new night would be across styles and freestyle.

Since early 2000, Pete has continued to develop the label, taking it to new heights. BBE models itself on the motto of 'real music for real people' – with now over 180 compilations and artist albums released, profiling a variety of sounds and styles from funk and soul to disco and Latin as well as house and hip hop and beyond.
