Bristol-based Break presents the next album from Commercial Suicide, the label run by acclaimed D&B/techno artist Klute. Throughout the thirteen-track selection we have such highlights as the dark, understated roller "Ringing Ears", heavier-than-thou techy number "Pression", classic Break cut "Desting Comes Ringing", plus a couple of top notch collabs with Silent Witness ("Trippy" and "Rain Man"). The follow up from his superlative album Resistance, this makes for an essential listen for hardened Break fans as well as newcomers, as he touches on the hard, the heavy and the techy, with some Amen moments in there to boot.
A much loved figure across the D&B spectrum, Break brings us his next utterance on none other than Critical Music, who are enjoying their time in the limelight at the moment, following Kasra's recent Fabriclive mix. Here, we see Break doing what he does best in "Here We Go" as he goes in hard and fast, with pounding bass; those unmistakable Break er, breaks; and plenty of fury in the grinding synths which pepper this spectacular release. "Soundwaves", in some ways a slightly less intense cut, pairs a muffled reggae vocal, with almost impenetrable sub bass and low-end frequencies.
