Ikebe Shakedown
"Vibrant vintage funk that sends crate-digging DJs into spasms of joy…” – Time Out. “ New album Stone By Stone recorded at Daptone Studios. 
Iron Horse Music Hall

Ikebe Shakedown’s powerful instrumental soul takes “big unison horns, slinky bass lines, tight little guitar licks—and blends them with tasty grooves culled from '70s-style horn-driven funk (WNYC Soundcheck).” The Brooklyn-based collective is set to follow up their well-received self-titled debut album with the heavier, more mature sound of their second full-length Stone By Stone, out April 15, 2014 on Ubiquity Records.  The new album was recorded at the famed “House of Soul” Daptone Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Several band members are also currently touring members for artists including Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Lee Fields and The Monophonics.  “Ikebe Shakedown re-creates the kind of vibrant vintage funk that sends crate-digging DJs into spasms of joy…” – TimeOut New York   “One of the dopest up-and-coming afrobeat bands on the NY scene.” –  The Afrobeat Blog “A must have nugget for fans of Fela Kuti/Africa70, The JB’s, or Antibalas.” – boomkat.com
