Symmetry Recordings – Break – 10 Years of Symmetry LP – [Review]


A decade marks a proper milestone, worthy of being celebrated in style and in taking good pride of the achievement at hand. In this instance, we commemorate Ten Years Of Symmetry Recordings with Break.

Ten Years Of Symmetry LP is comprised of twelve tracks by yours truly, who also started the label, exactly a decade ago. This album sees Break whipping up some massive and sickest joints that made us see flames through the speakers, and into our poor but happy ears.

Six of them are joints that Break chose to do solo, such as; the sizzling ‘Ain’t No Turning Back’; and the smashing ‘Who Got The Funk’; as well as the last track ‘Not Forgotten’ with one interesting intro, dropping to a neat Jungle style. The other half of the LP is made up of really awesome collaborations by some of the great and well-established artists in the D&B industry that we’ve always known and loved since way back. One of the overall godfathers, MC Fats makes an entry in the form of Break’s version (remix) of ‘Free Your Mind’. But, it does not end there; there is another remix he did together with DLR i.e. NC17 & KC’s ‘Slimeville’.

Other key players leaving their musical mark in this dope album are namely; CIA Recording’s Total Science; the Spectrasoul duo and; possibly Break’s favorite vocalist, Kyo coming through and laying in her lovely singing and those strong, message-filled lyrics right at the top, titled ‘If I could’. Here, Break came together with Boston. She makes a second appearance that marks the half-way mark through the album, in a song called ‘Give In To Me’. Three words to describe this jam; soulful, hard and, progressive.

Break delivers his versatility without sacrificing his renowned artistic signature that made him a chart topper, and a classic hit maker, with records selling out. Ten Years Of Symmetry LP is bringing the heat this season and, is already a classic.
