Ikebe Shakedown "Tujunga" (Ubiquity Records)
Ikebe Shakedown is a Brooklyn-based band that plays with elements of Cinematic Soul, Afro-funk, Deep Disco, and Boogaloo in all the right ways. Named after a favorite Nigerian boogie record (and pronounced “ee-KAY-bay,”), the group delivers a driving set of tunes featuring a mighty horn section anchored by tight, deep-pocketed grooves.
