The Brooklyn based electronic duo, Break Science are kicking off 2012 with the release of their second EP entitled “Monolith Code” (Pretty Lights Music). As seasoned producers and touring veterans, Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee have produced and performed with everyone from The Fugees, Wu Tang Clan, and Talib Kweli, to reggae Lee Scratch Perry and Miles Davis collaborator, John Scofield. On “Monolith Code”, Break Science evoke a wide spectrum of electronic genres filtered through a musician’s lens, all while moving people, both spiritually and on the dance floor.
“”Monolith Code” is the innate message we have to decipher to get to the next step in our evolution,” says Lee. “The monolith represents a transition into a higher level of consciousness. A spark that initiates us to consider wider possibilities and ideas. The code is the system to express this transformation. Containing information from the past, present and future, it holds the key to unlock our potential as spiritual beings.”
Adam Deitch describes the musical process behind the record. “We understand that to bring our vision to life, we have to spend just as much time on the programmed elements as we do on the live elements. Our goal is to blend these elements seamlessly, so everything comes together in an organic way. Our music is layered with different frequencies and sonic textures so it becomes something you can listen to multiple times and STILL hear new elements you might have missed the first time. We are influenced by everything from hip-hop and glitch, to jazz, soul, vinyl drum breaks and dub. We like certain elements of dubstep and drumstep (especially that BASS) and try to incorporate that sound in a fresh, new way.”
Raised in the cultural hotbed of New York City, Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee fuse the city’s rich musical legacy – jazz, funk, soul – with a deep-rooted dedication to creating their own take on modern electronic music. Armed with Deitch’s thunderous breakbeat style on the drums and Lee’s seasoned trip-hop/dub aesthtic on keyboards and laptop, their instrumental styles are perfectly interwoven within their soulful, banging, and extremely danceable tracks.
Break Science is poised to make their biggest mark yet on the burgeoning livetronica scene. Joining forces with a movement of new electronic artists on the Pretty Lights Music label, this potent duo will continue to push the boundaries of modern music. Break Science will shortly be embarking on tour, so stay tuned for the announcement of those dates.
