The mighty Break is back once again with more of what he does best; yet another tantalising 12” to add to the ever growing list of finely produced tracks from this man. Break’s unforgiving and powerful style is something that has cemented his place as one of the scenes most prolific producers over the last decade. With a plethora of releases on most of the biggest labels in drum and bass and the constant stream of fresh material on his label Symmetry Recordings, it’s easy to see how he has become such a figure head in today’s scene.
This time around it’s Sigma’s Life Recordings that plays host to the Symmetry boss’ hard hitting beats. With the recent chart success of Sigma’s ‘Nobody To Love’ and releases from themselves and Bladerunner, the future looks very bright indeed for the duo and their label.
Kicking things off we have ‘Groove With It’; a certified stomper that holds the power to tear up any dance floor it comes into contact with. No time is wasted on this one as the thumping drums come straight in and set the tone for some rolling goodness. In comes the audacious vocal sample, which continues throughout the track, instructing “groove with it”, perfectly complementing the short pauses in the drums that come every sixteen bars. We only get a short breather before the bouncy second drop; the bass line steps along with the drums, finished off with that omnipresent growl. This is definitely one that everyone’s going to need in their locker.
The flip side ‘Soldier’ is in keeping with the hard style of ‘Groove With It’, possessing a slightly more choppy drum pattern and a dense twisting bass line. The vocal cries out amidst the siege undertaken by the surrounding bass kicks and piercing snares, with next to no let up from the relentless sonic assault (which is definitely a good thing) as we roll through the roughness.
This is classic Break for sure, so don’t slouch, check the links below to pre-order your copy A.S.A.P.
