Their first collaboration since the 2014 smash "Ghost In The System" on Hot Creations, dance music supergroup Pleasure State returns for "Break Away" on Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars.

The title cut "Break Away" sees swung drums and a bouncing bassline under Englund's addictive vocal performance before fluttering synths see the track out, leading into the second cut, "Take My Time". Marrying melancholic keys and floating pads alongside vocal chops, the trio forms a gorgeous late-night groover, effortlessly fusing their styles into the cohesive sound of Pleasure State.

I'm so proud that MK, Anabel, and I could bring back our group Pleasure State to mark Repopulate Mars's 100th release with some of our best songwriting and production. It's an important milestone for the label and I couldn't think of a better way to ring it in.
