London's best kept secret BREAK REFORM have produced some of the finest abstract soul/jazz. Releasing a trio of very sought after 12? singles, the first being the highly acclaimed ‘Medusa'.The second release ‘Mercy' also contained the sublime ‘Perfect Season', first heard on the compilation ‘Gilles Peterson Worldwide'. The third single ‘When It Came' featured the alternative and groundbreaking remix by Tony Nwachukwu from Attica Blues.The reception has been massive with huge radio and dj support worldwide from Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Dirk Rumpff, Michael Rutten and many others. ‘Fractures' is the debut album featuring all the previous single releases plus a host of outstanding new works, which continue to highlight BREAK REFORM'S musical ethos of blending soul, jazz and hip-hop with beautifully written songs and sincere vocals. Taking the baton from their debut album 'Fractures', in 2003, for a serene jog into 2005, their second and highly anticipated offering 'Reformation' is the personification of how good and proud British soul/jazz music can really be. An album that should be enjoyed here and now and be treasured as a gem of its era and a minimalist masterpiece that defies time, age and genre. The commercial logic and underground sensibility of Break Reform seems a simple equation. The immense production skills and themes of JJ Webster and Simon S, the fervent and potent singing and songwriting capabilities of Nanar Vorperian are in a perfect collision course. No over complicated production & not sample heavy, it's the creative confidence of the trio in making downtempo masterpieces that really touches the heart of their absorbing sound.
