What separates Break Science from the other bands in 2011's burgeoning electronic scene? Try over 30 years combined experience in music, performing with and producing many of today's hottest artists and living legends. Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee have worked with premier artists- everyone from Wyclef Jean and the Fugees, Raekwon
and GZA of the Wu Tang Clan, to reggae/dub legend Lee Scratch Perry and
Miles Davis collaborator John Scofield.
Raised in the cultural hotbed of New York City, Deitch and Lee fuse the city's rich musical legacy- jazz, funk, soul, with a deep-rooted connection to its hip-hop heritage to create their own take on modern electronic music. Armed with Deitch's thunderous breakbeat style on the drums and Lee's seasoned trip-hop/dub aesthetic on keyboards and laptop, their instrumental styles are perfectly interwoven within their beautiful, banging and extremely danceable tracks. This sound is bound to make a major mark on the modern musical landscape.
Matt Haze began his DJ career in the Bronx as a husky 10 year-old, cutting up the dopest Paula Abdul and MC Hammer cassingles at his little sister's birthday party. In high school, he took a fervent interest underground music and started attending basement shows and warehouse raves. To share his newfound passion, Haze founded NYC a pirate radio station with two tape decks, a mail-order transmitter kit and a ratty pair of old headphones that doubled as the studio mic.
Today, after logging thousands of frequent flyer miles and hundreds of gigs, Haze brings an eclectic flavor and sophisticated sonic palette to the turntables. Don't be surprised to hear Israeli dancehall, Brazilian funk, Ukrainian hip-hop or German oompahtronics in the mix alongside the latest heavy bass cuts and always a few dusties from his deep crates!
