Breakstra - Get it Right

Lead by "Music Man" Miles Tackett, Breakestra is a Los Angeles institution; as reliable a source of soul-jazz grooves, fuzzed-out funk, and sassy soul strut as can be found this side of 1969. From their origins stitching together live band versions of the breaks which serve as the backbone for the hip-hop tracks you know by heart, to their current stable of original songs with enough bump to fill the hole in Eddie Bo's bucket, Breakestra know what it takes to make the people move. Breakstra's second full length album of original material is due at the end of September, and serves as a tribute to DJ Dusk, Miles' DJ partner at L.A.'s Rootdown party, whose life was tragically taken in a road accident in 2007. Grab the track "Get It Right" for a taste of the flavor from Miles & Mixmaster Wolf's latest studio throwdown.
