After a four-year break from the studio, L.A.'s finest practitioners of party funk & breaks, BREAKESTRA, return to the fray with a brand new studio album on STRUT 'Dusk 'Til Dawn'. The band's recordings have been rare to savour, numbering an early live cassette-only mixtape, a handful of singles and second mixtape release on STONES THROW and a debut studio album, "Hit The Floor", on UBIQUITY in late 2005. For 2009, Breakestra return with their long-awaited sophomore set exploring all colours of the funk spectrum. Built around the vision of "Music Man" MILES TACKETT (who, as well as producing, plays drums, bass, guitars, keys and percussion on the record) and MIXMASTER WOLF. Incidentally, Miles is one hell of a musician, to give you an idea he has also worked with artists as diverse as MACY GRAY, BLIND MELON, SEPULTURA, DAMIAN MARLEY & NAS, BB KING & TRACY CHAPMAN, T-LOVE, BLACK EYED PEAS and EVERLAST amongst many more. Their trademark sound remains intact with those 60's and 70's soul influences being filtered via the Big Muff fuzz of the funk spectrum and the urban flows of hip hop. Wolf fronts tough breakbeat jams "Dark Clouds Rain Soul" and Stones Throw single "Low Down Stank"; Miles himself brings his soulful vocals to "Need A Little Love" and "I Don't Wanna Wait" and amazing new female vocalist AFRODYETE recalls the heyday of JB's "Funky People" on the terrific "Come On Over". The album even journeys into psychedelic soul (on the fuzzy "Show Me The Way") and stripped-back New Orleans organ sounds on the instrumental cut "North-East To Nippon". "Dusk 'Til Dawn? is a tribute to Tackett?s late DJ partner at Rootdown, DJ DUSK, whose life was tragically taken in a road accident in 2007. Dusk posthumously appears alongside JURASSIC 5's CHALI 2NA (soon to be touring) on the funky rap joint "Posed To Be" and the album is a fitting tribute to a much-loved L.A. figure and integral member of a scene which has become globally respected.
