Vytear''s latest release, Breaks, is in a few words, a love affair with the drum break. It is frantic and fast-paced, yet refined and classic at the same time. Vytear wants his listeners to hear every sonic variation while feeling like they are on an ambulance ride to a local hospital after suffering a stroke.

On Breaks he continues his homage to mid-‘90s beat manipulation, but these days the breakcore camp has grown to the extent that there’s a huge scene doing this stuff. If there’s a difference with Vytear, it’s the fun that he clearly has doing it. The opening track, “Friends of Jelly”, is a case in point. Everything, not just the breakbeats, gets cut up and bounced around like balloons filled with, er, jelly. It recalls the best of the Worm Interface releases, or perhaps the fast-paced melodic exuberance of a certain period of Plaid. There’s no doubt that Vytear is still going to get described as “sounding like” this or that, but it’s no second-rate aping of just one person. While nothing else is quite up to the joyful madness of the first track, Breaks is well-produced and
