When it comes to the ongoing evolution of live electronic music, Denver-based duo Break Science remains at the creative forefront for over a decade. 

Fast forward to 2023, Break Science is now back after some prolonged downtime with upcoming tour dates and Mecha Flora–their newest EP released back in February. Mecha Flora marks their first body of work since the Grid of Souls LP, released back in 2018.

Raised and heavily influenced by the culture and rhythms of New York City, members Borham Lee (Pretty Lights Live Band) and Adam Deitch (Lettuce) combine the rich legacy of NYC funk, jazz, soul, and hip hop heritage to create their own take on electronic music. The result is Break Science: A refreshingly unique soundscape backed by raw musical talent that’s widely-renowned within the scene. 

Last weekend, Lee and Deitch returned to their roots at the iconic Brooklyn Bowl for a much-anticipated live performance in their home city. The venue filled up quickly for a Saturday evening as adoring fans gathered to celebrate the pair’s return—many of whom have been with them from the beginning. 

Opening with an extended version of “Anthony Mason” followed by seamless transitions, crisp backbeats and live guest vocals—the nearly two hour set had everyone groovin’ (including venue staff) from start to finish. 

Between Deitch’s backbeat drum performance, Lee’s trip hop fusion on keyboard, and arguably some of the best sound quality we’ve experienced at a live show—it’s safe to say Break Science understood the assignment and set the tone for 2023 and beyond.
