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.
The self-produced album was recorded at the famed
"House of Soul" Daptone Studios in Bushwick,
Brooklyn. Notes bassist Vince Chiarito, "Thinking of
all the great music that has come out of the Daptone
Studio really pushed us to refine our songs and grow
as a band. It was really inspiring to record there." The
band adds that, "Stone By Stone is a much more
layered and arranged album. The self-titled debut
captured the raw energy of us playing live and the
new record is much more of a studio effort.
Psychedelic textures weave in and out of the grooves
while the horn section offers an explosive response.
The songs are heavy and danceable and show our
moodier, more melodic side."
The seven-piece band-named after a favorite
Nigerian boogie record and pronounced
"ee-KAY-bay"-formed in 2008 and has developed a
mighty horn section anchored by tight,
deep-pocketed grooves. Following 2009's debut EP
Hard Steppin', the band released their self-titled
debut full-length LP on Ubiquity Records in 2011 that
Okayplayer called "an adventurous trip through time"
and "one of the best releases of the year." Their
music has also been featured on a number of
television shows and commercials including HBO's
Eastbound and Down, Mini Cooper and Vans.
