Ikebe Shakedown – The Offering

ikebe artwork

Ikebe Shakedown from Brooklyn, New York is one of the top afro-funk orchestras out there. They will be releasing their sophomore album, “Stone By Stone”, on Ubiquty Records some time in the near future. They first appeared on the scene in 2009 with the EP “Hard Steppin” and their self titled debut album was released in 2011. The lead off track from their new album is “The Offering” and if it’s anything to go by, we’re in for quite a treat. “The Offering” is a blistering afro-funk workout with thick bass, scratchy guitars, blaring horns and all. A jam that takes no prisoners.
