Press:

“Ikebe Shakedown re-creates the kind of vibrant vintage funk that sends crate-digging DJs into spasms of joy…†– TimeOut New York

“I couldn’t help but feel as if I was listening to a modern day soundtrack from the likes of Curtis Mayfield or Willie Hutch. The album carries a certain soulful grit; so much so that it’s easy to get lost in present-day reality. “Is this seriously from 2011?†I often wondered. You see, at its core, Ikebe Shakedown isn’t trying to be funk. It just is…one of the best releases of the year†– OkayPlayer’s Revivalist (9.0 review)

“Ikebe Shakedown has a sound that is undeniably all their own†– KEXP, Seattle

“Tight, hard charging and “Hard Steppin†— doing their thing with abundant classic stateside instro funk influences, too! It says a lot that these guys are making a welcome entry to the east coast scene…†– Dusty Groove America

“Hard Steppin’…is…the perfect soundtrack for the unwritten Tarantino movie of your imagination, and should be listened to while driving fast, preferably towards danger.†– WNYC

“We’re talking serious dance music that makes them stand alone…it’d be good to see them on the European festival circuit†– Gerry Hectic – Fly, UK

“One of the dopest up-and-coming afrobeat bands on the NY scene.†– Marc Amigone – The Afrobeat Blog

“A must have nugget for fans of Fela Kuti/Africa70, The JB’s, or Antibalas.†– boomkat.com
