Break

Long hours in the studio have lead to releases on Ram, Metalheadz, Shogun, Exit, Critical, Soul:R, Quarantine, Subtitles and a host of others; cementing Break’s reputation as one of drum & bass’ hottest talents. His trusted skills have been chosen to remix seminal drum & bass classics including Shy FX’s ‘Bambaata’, Die’s ‘Clear Skyz’, Commix’s ‘Talk to Frank’ and Ram Trilogy’s ‘Gridlock’ as well as Bloc Party’s UK top-5 hit ‘The Prayer’.

Equally praised for his DJ skills, Break maintains a consistent touring schedule that sees him playing across the globe on a weekly basis on the stages of the world’s biggest drum & bass institutions; from Fabric, Detonate, Metalheadz, Oulook and Let it Roll and Star Warz, in the UK to the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the breadth of Europe, playing headline shows or back2back sets with the likes of Die, Goldie and Dillinja.

Launching his own label, Symmetry Recordings in 2006, Break honed and polished his sound with each single and released his fist album, also entitled ‘Symmetry’ in 2008. Featuring forays into ambient, dubstep, funk, hip hop, house and soul amongst an arsenal of sure-fire drum & bass, Symmetry’ earned Break an army of new fans from outside the d&b world with tracks picked up by the likes of techno legends Laurent Garnier and Josh Wink.

Two years later Break set the bar further still via his second LP; ‘Resistance’. Featuring collaborations with No U-Turn mastermind Nico, Bristol’s DJ Die, super-duo Calyx & Teebee, DNAudio cohorts Silent Witness and Survival, Shogun Audio’s SpectraSoul and vocalists Kyo and SP:MC, the album offers a glorious journey through the spectrum of Break’s styles and influences with a clear indication of where his talents were to lead him next.

2013 saw the release of his compilation project ‘The Other Side’, featuring himself alongside Eastcolors, Ulterior Motive, Jubei, Need for mirrors, DLR, Mikal, Villem, Mako, Fields, Silent witness, Prolix & Hydro. The year also offered massive solo singles including “Steam Train” & “Music is better”.

In 2014 Break was the top selling DnB artist on Beatport with a huge output of singles, remixes and features on albums for DLR and Mikal. Calibre’s classic remix of Breaks’ track “They’re Wrong” helped cement Symmetry Sessions 1 as one of the labels most significant releases. With label club-nights across the U.K. and abroad, Symmetry has grown to establish itself as one of the leading sources of quality DnB music worldwide.

With quality musicality being the main focus of the label, Break’s third solo DnB album “Simpler Times” was released in Autumn 2015 and features collaborations with scientific producers DLR, Xtrah and talented vocalists Kyo, Mc Fats, Celestine and Mad Hed City.

We are proud to have Break on board with the release of ‘Solvent’ / Exposure feat Mark Douglas – Regrets (AR003) out on vinyl and digital now.
