Breakestra is the real deal

Now if you don't have any, start with the album "Hit the Floor" first and download the whole thing. If you already have that then pick through this. You might want to check out their EP and single releases first for a couple of alt 12" versions. The other version of Lowdown Stank runs 7:25. And no offense to Chali 2na but the instrumental version of "Posed To Be" on the ep is better. (this rap was a bit weak). Taste is up to the individual on what you pick and choose. Yeah Chiefboss they do tend to stick to their own backyard a little too much.

SO GOOD!!!

Down and dirty funk at its finest. Not a bad track on the album. I wish they would tour more!

Can do no funky wrong!

This band is the best new funk outfit out there right now along with the New Mastersounds. Get it and groove on.

Good old fashion horn rich funk baby. Good stuff here, sort of takes you back in a good way, but is still as relevant as ever.

They Say All Music Guide

In 2005, Breakestra, the Miles “Om” Tackett-led band, released their full-length debut, Hit the Floor, an album praised for its loyalty to preserving the sound of the funky breaks later sampled in hip-hop. Four years passed between Hit the Floor and Dusk Till Dawn, but despite (or perhaps because of) the time elapsed, their sophomore follow-up lacks cohesion, feeling instead like it’s been cobbled together from songs Tackett’s been working on in fits and starts since the last album was completed. He is far and away the driving force behind the record, and the band (while they tour with an eight-piece, Tackett plays guitar, bass, keyboard, cello, and percussion on Dusk Till Dawn, sings on a handful of songs, and produced, wrote, and recorded everything), which perhaps explains this, but unfortunately doesn’t help the fact that the album often feels as if it’s dragging on far past where it should have stopped. It’s not that Dusk Till Dawn is slow: it is a funk album, in fact, full of fast-paced songs that are quick and light on the beat, with plenty of horn and guitar riffs, and so tracks move along at a good clip. But because many of the songs are instrumental and structurally simple, when they stretch past the five- and six-minute marks, which they often do, it’s hard to stay focused on what’s going on. It’s also not to say there aren’t some bright spots here: “‘Posed to Be,” featuring Chali 2na and the late DJ Dusk (Tackett’s old DJ partner) should have been a Sugarhill Gang hit, and “No Matter Where You Go,” with vocals by Mixmaster Wolf, is a fun namecheck of contemporary soul and funk bands worldwide (the New Mastersounds, the Dap-Kings, the Bamboos, etc), and an acknowledgement that they know they’re not doing anything new, that they’re part of a scene. But this is also the problem with Breakestra: they are just part of a scene, and not at the top of it, so reminding listeners of the other bands also reminds them what those bands do better (vocals, hooks, choruses, etc), and ultimately, makes the weak parts of Dusk Till Dawn more memorable than the highlights. – Marisa Brown
