Break Reflects On '10 Years Of Symmetry'

It's crazy to think that it's been 10 years since Break started his Symmetry Recordings imprint. As a producer, I was a fan of his instantly; he was cut from that No U-Turn cloth, but had a twinge of A-Sides' Eastside in him. It was like heaven to see him rise up via DNAudio with the likes of Silent Witness and Squire, and while Break's called everywhere from Subtitles to Quarantine home, it was the start of his Symmetry Recordings imprint in 2006 that he really came into his own.

While Break's always been about the harder, more technical side of drum & bass, he's been able to properly spread his wings into dubbier tracks, more soulful liquid-esque stylings, and much more, and to celebrate the 10 years since the label kicked off, he dropped a new compilation, 10 Years of Symmetry, that properly highlights just how broad his sound and the label have really been. Featuring collabs with vocalists like Fats and Kyo as well as Total Science and Spectrasoul, this is a beautiful way to celebrate a decade of drum & bass decadence.

To promote the project, Break's dropped a 30-minute mix featuring cuts from the release as well as classic Symmetry material. Stream it below, and then cop the compilation on vinyl or digital download. And if you're really feeling lucky, check out a mix and chat I had with him for DoAndroidsDance back in 2014.
