Breakestra Hit The Floor
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Ubiquity
When Miles Tackett put baby teeth under his pillow, he woke up sleeping on scattershot snare beats; on Christmas morning, Tackett‘s granny left Rickey Calloway howls and funky flute vibes under the tree. It paid off. On the new, all-original Breakestra album, Tackett & Co. drop 14 of the stankiest live breakbeat funk tracks of this age. From the relentless opening salvo of "Stand Up"-the new "Internationale" of funk-to vibey instrumental numbers (flute thang "Burgundy Blue"; Rhodes workout "How Do You Really Feel") to Mixmaster Wolf‘s thick-maned vocals, Hit the Floor does so runnin‘ and never lets up.
