BREAKS - RELEASED FRIDAY 23 APRIL 2021
Halina Rice is a London-based electronic musician and AV artist renowned for her vivid and eclectic style, using multiple effects and sampling to create original and experimental sounds.  Uniting elements of ambient, electronic, percussive and bass music, her sound ranges from evocative soundscapes to beat-driven, punchy tracks.
Halina details the track: "I'd been playing this for over a year in live sets and people kept asking about it so it seemed like a natural choice for the next release. I put the vocals through an extreme sound stretch effect - as this happened really interesting and unintentional tones between the notes started showing up, which seemed very beautiful."

Once again teaming up with visual artist and interaction designer, Jan Petyrek the BREAKS visuals are the third installment in the New Worlds project where each track has it's own visual identity and world. Designed in game tech Unity 3D the visuals have the same strange, evocative and forlorn quality as for previous releases. 
"We wanted to represent the abstract and other-worldly elements of the track in this detached feeling cityscape but kept a more organic feel using filmed footage on screens around the city. As soon as we put this in it gave the place we had created an illusion of being real while at the same time abstract”
