A breath of fresh air for breakbeats as we know it. Simple are new boys on the block, straight outta the UK. Focusing on the deep, broken house styles of breaks, their opening single "Kingdom / Karma" sets a good precident for whats to come. Kingdom breaks out with tribal percussions and a tight filtered bass under tone, building to a settled rhythm which introduces some fuzzy basslines. Perfect for the start of the night, or 6am in the morning. Music lovers need only apply.
Much more mellower then the A side. Filtered bass again but this time its like swimming underwater. Jazzy saxaphones and synthns keep it all in check adding interest to the track. Mid-way though, the breakbeat tightens to an almost 4/4 structure. Pace picks up as the tension builds, a well programmed track that has the same influence as a 6am sunrise. Lush. You'll see what I mean when I say music lovers need only apply.
