Simon Splice drops ‘Dance With Me / Life Goes On’ on Balearic Breaks
The white isle is the global stage for electronic music, the ultimate place for new sounds. Balearic Breaks is the first Drum & Bass label to be born in Ibiza, bringing a new soulful, Liquid sound to a worldwide audience. They launch the imprint with a 2 track single from Simon Splice called ‘Dance With Me / Life Goes On.
The three founding members of Balearic Breaks went to Ibiza from the UK and were locked down on the white isle throughout 2020. Through their shared love of music, they created Balearic Breaks. So, just who are these people?
Darren Jay – co-owner of the 30-year strong AWOL brand, Jungle legend and sound tech / tour manager for Larry Heard
Rhyan Paul – former label and tour manager at Metalheadz and manager for Goldie, industry educator.
Alex Herbert – former resident at Together, Amnesia and founder of the Bassface Ibiza brand.
“Balearic Breaks is bringing the funky and soulful sounds of our adaptation of Liquid DnB to Ibiza and the world. Our first three double-A releases are signed and will be distributed by SRD in London. We have been inundated by incredible music from both new and established artists worldwide. Our philosophy is to champion the producers of today and develop the new producers of the future. The music we release is cross genre and we want it to appeal to both D&B purists and also to house aficionados as well.”
In addition to vinyl and digital releases from established artists, the Balearic Breaks team is supporting and nurturing new talent to develop and grow musically. With 30+ years of industry experience that includes winning MOBO’s, managing Goldie and his Metalheadz label, being one of the pioneers of Jungle and Drum & Bass and more recently working as tour manager for Godfather of Deep House, Larry Heard; the Balearics Breaks team is uniquely placed to guide and mentor new artists through all aspects of the music industry to help them further their careers.
The Balearics Break website is now live and includes information about the label, artists and releases plus a section for new producers to be able to submit their work and receive a 360 feedback session. Click here to check it out!
Today we premiere Simon Splice ft. Ewan Sim ‘Life Goes On’ which I am in complete love with!
‘Life Goes On’ is a beautiful homage to the struggles that we are all currently dealing with. A super powerful and emotional track made for the masses, featuring bright orchestral stabs, unique sound design and the added element of soulful vocals from Ewan Sim and an instantly catchy chorus.
