Boomkat Product Review:
Probably the most acclaimed of the new school of Funk ensembles, Breakestra hit another tight groove on the Strut-released 'Dusk Til Dawn'. It's taken them four years to construct this album, following the worldwide success of 'Hit The Floor' and a period when real-time funk has hit the charts courtesy of Mark Ronson's work with The Dapkings, but it was really Breakestra that kick-started the current revival thing back in the late 90's when their early Stones Throw releases were celebrated by the likes of DJ Shadow and Peanut Butter Wolf. The hard-working troupe deliver 15 tracks of intensely well-studied Funk schemes paying tribute to classic 60's and 70's breakbeat driven funk of the JB's, Sly and The Family Stone and countless other practitioners. A mst have for fans of Mayer Hawthorne, Quantic Soul Orchestra or the Dapkings.
