Reissue of classic Colemine 7" from 2010 / Ikebe Shakedown is back with another super-funky single, "No Answer", from their debut EP Hard Steppin'. It's a mid-tempo number that's got some nasty horns and will make your ass shake uncontrollably. And did we mention this is a BATTLE RECORD? The Jive Turkeys' version "No Answer" is on the flip!
Ikebe Shakedown is Brooklyn-based, eight-piece instrumental juggernaut that incorporates the sounds of '60s and '70s African Funk and American Soul Music for a totally fresh sound. Featuring dynamic horns backed by a hard-hitting rhythm section, Ikebe Shakedown (pronounced ee-kay-bay) will get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor! With obvious influences from legendary groups such as The J.B.’s and The Meters, Ikebe Shakedown is also looking to make their own mark on the Brooklyn scene in the vein of more contemporary groups like The Budos Band, Antibalas, and The Menahan Street Band.
