Dusk Till Dawn
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 this September, DUSK TILL 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 and Mixmaster Wolf (as well as producing, Miles plays drums, bass, guitars, keys and percussion the record), the trademark Breakestra touches remain intact: 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'
