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 on 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 . The album even journeys into psychedelic soul (on the fuzzy Show Me The Way ) and stripped-back New Orleans organ stylings on instrumental cut, North-East To Nippon .
Dusk Till 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 himself appears alongside Jurassic 5 s Charlie 2na 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 that has become globally respected.
