Image: 1579987 Ikebe Shakedown are back with a brand new bag of hard-hitting tunes recorded at Daptone Studios’ legendary House of Soul Studios. This limited single is a precursor to their much anticipated sophomore full-length album.
“The Beast” finds the band in fine form, with their signature multi-layered horns featured front and center on top of an underlying slow-burning groove. “Road Song” is a slight departure from their sound with a haunting piano melody in place of the horns, floating over a sinister bassline driven by tight drumming throughout. This version of the song is going to be exclusive to this 7”in single.
Ikebe Shakedown’s self-titled debut in 2011 garnered the band wide acclaim with features on Okayplayer’s affiliate blog The Revivalist and highly influential site Paris DJ’s. They’ve also shared the stage with acts such as fellow label-mates Orgone, and most recently with Lee Fields and
the Expressions. Look for one of Brooklyn’s finest on the road this spring as they do a limited run of show’s through the East Coast and Canada and be on the lookout for the full-length album set to drop later in the Summer.
