Ikebe Shakedown

August 30, 2018 at 5:30pm

Brooklyn-based instrumental soul-funk purveyors Ikebe Shakedown combine primal elements of ’70s soul, raw funk, and cinematic soundtracks with a relentless groove and soaring melodies. The multi-talented band members, who have backed renowned soul-funk artists including Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and Charles Bradley, are constantly pushing their explosive instrumental style further, wowing audiences in the U.S. and around the world.

After considerable time building their own analog studio and hitting the road with some of the most revered acts in the Brooklyn soul scene, the band released their third album, The Way Home, which takes these sensibilities to new heights. There’s something here for everyone, with Time Out New York declaring, “Ikebe Shakedown recreates the kind of vibrant vintage funk that sends crate-digging DJs into spasms of joy.”
