In-Store Performance: Ikebe ShakedownFriday, March 19th | 7pm FREE
Brooklyn Afro-Funk juggernaut Ikebe Shakedown unleashes a fiery mix of sweaty Afro rhythms, deep funk, and gritty disco. Featuring dynamic horns and a hard-hitting rhythm section, Ikebe (ee-KAY-bay) Shakedown will get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!
In their short history, Ikebe Shakedown has played packed clubs and colleges from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, San Francisco to Vermont. Their debut 7” single and EP, Hard Steppin’, was recorded at Dunham Studios in Brooklyn and has received a great response from press and consistent radio play across the U.S. and Europe. Riding this momentum, Ikebe has already recorded their next full-length album at Killion Sound in Los Angeles with Sergio Rios (Orgone, The Lions, Breakestra), due to drop in Summer 2010.
