Break Science’s “Oshun” Is The Best Sonic Diet For Spiritual Balance

And it’s delicioso

Through pulsing, glitching synth lines and gauzy production, Break Science elevates our spirituality in new single “Oshun” – an ode to the Goddess of love and freshwater in Ifá and Yoruba religions (Latin America and Africa). Over the bursting high-tempo, Break Science conducts a synthphony of dissolving and bursting beats that riffs, cuts, extends, and swirls over a soundscape that feels like dub-indebted dream pop. The lyrics are minimalistic, letting the locomotive skeleton and harmony convey the majestic sensuality of “Oshun”:

“This song is a dedication to Oshun, the Goddess who governs love and freshwaters,” explained Break Science’s keyboardist/producer, Borham Lee. “She is the protector of the poor, healer of the sick, the bringer of music and dance, prosperity and fertility. With this song, we hope to invoke the divine feminine essence of nature to instill a higher thought and create spiritual balance.”

The other half of Break Science is Adam Deitch who is funk/hip-hop drummer prodigy. Even if you haven’t heard of Break Science, you’ve heard of their works. Lee has worked with artists such as Kanye West and The Fugees while Deitch has worked with Redman, Pharoahe Monch and members of Wu-Tang Clan.
