Brooklyn's Breakdown Brass drop yet another killer slab of wax! They've unleashed an original juggernaut entitled "Harrow", a follow-up to their smash debut 45 "Monmouth b/w Next Episode" (Kept Records) and sophomore 45 "The Horseman b/w Mary Jane" (Mixto Music). Driving, dirty horns are punctuated by intense trombone and baritone sax solos - prepare your stank face.
The B-side "Nautilus (Hijacked)" is a breakbeat burner that pays homage to Bob James, whose track Nautilus has been heavily sampled by Slick Rick, Eric B & Rakim, Run-DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, Onyx, Wu Tang Clan, Big L, Pete Rock and about 300 others. Throw in some Herbie Mann/Beatnuts and you got yourself a hit!
The members of Breakdown Brass stay busy - touring and recording with Antibalas, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Monophonics, Ikebe Shakedown, Slavic Soul Party! and many others. Led by Nadav Nirenberg on trombone, their unique combination of heavy Afro-Funk with the sizzle of Balkan Brass has caught the eye of Gilles Peterson, NPR, BBC and more.
