Ikebe Shakedown Debut Now Available Digitally + Tour Dates


Ikebe Shakedown, the self-titled album from the Brooklyn-based band, plays with elements of cinematic soul, afro-funk, deep disco, and boogaloo in all the right ways.  After spending a few years together the group, named after a favorite Nigerian boogie record (and pronounced “ee-KAY-bay,”) delivers a driving set of tunes featuring a mighty horn section anchored by tight, deep-pocketed grooves. Their self-titled debut is now available digitally in their web store and other digital outlets. Digital and CD versions include 4 bonus tracks!  Also, check out Ikebe Shakedown's tour schedule after the jump.

The session, originally performed for Eurosonic, acts as a rebirth for the artist as her musical and visual journey continues to evolve before our eyes—while teasing new unreleased music to look forward to. It seems as though those around the singer agree, as she was then honored with a Music Moves Europe award.
