Break is set to release his fifth studio album – ‘Another Way’ on Symmetry Recordings. Longtime pioneer of forward-thinking jungle and drum and bass, Break, aka Charlie Bierman, is known for consistently generating chatter around his releases – despite his absence from social media – making the anticipation for his latest collection all the greater & as always, worth the wait.
To get to a point in your career where just the mention of a new record send’s aficionados scrambling for ID’s on Soundcloud & scouting for dubs is a testament in itself – and re-iterated further by the calibre of productions on his latest record.
Drawing from a rich array of musical influences, Break effortlessly transcends through a diverse spectrum of styles – proving why he’s the only producer ever to be asked to remix Dillinja.
From the minimal jazz leanings of opening track ‘Last Goodbye’ & ‘Jungle Desire’ featuring the timeless vocals of longtime collaborator Kyo – to the steppier, dance floor cuts ‘Keepin’ It Raw’ & ‘Dogs Dinner’ and the enchanting, dub-infused rhythms of ‘Sunset Dub’ & ‘Conversations’ ft MC Fats & Cleveland Watkiss – Break’s ability to tastefully combine enormous, jazzy vocals with faced paced, forward thinking cuts sets this LP apart from the rest. “The aim with this album was to explore many of my favourite aspects of drum & bass, and create tracks that work equally in the club, at home or on the go. The contributions from all the talented artists involved really helped to lift the project up to another level. It’s a great way to finish off my year, enjoy!” – Break 2018
