"The Horseman" is the new single from Brooklyn's Breakdown Brass. The track blends heavy Afro-Funk vibes with the sizzle of Balkan brass-band music, featuring razor-sharp horn licks and a powerful sousaphone bassline.

Breakdown Brass is made of young veterans of Brooklyn's soul and funk scene — its members tour and record with Antibalas, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, Monophonics, Slavic Soul Party & many others. Recorded at Dunham Studios by Thomas Brenneck (Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones, Budos Band, Jay-Z, etc.)
