Ikebe Shakedown — Hard Steppin EP ... LP 18.99

Hard Steppin funk and Afro steeped grooves from Ikebe Shakedown – solid stuff from the fertile Brooklyn funk scene – blending hard hitting 70s funk & soul with both stateside and African influences and more measured and slow cooking numbers! The group is young and doesn't take the task of honoring the pioneers of these sounds lightly – but the reverence isn't weighty or overbearing, and it's more about the getting the floorshaking groove spot on – which they do! The slower numbers are just as nice, and this 5 track taster bodes very, very well for Ikebe Shakedown's future. Titles include "Hard Steppin", "The Prisoner", "No Answer", "Afro Fred" and "Up In The Trees".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Colemine, 2017. Used
A fantastic album from this increasingly hip combo – a group who were already pretty darn funky at their start, but who've just kept on moving into really amazing territory over the years!

Wonderful early work from the great James Taylor Quartet – a killer UK group that emerged out of the London mod and acid jazz scenes of the 80s, then went onto become a monstrously talented funk group in their own right! Taylor's smoking Hammond leads the session, stepping out in some strong ... CD

Coolin' Off
Fog City/Volcano, 1996. Used
Choppy New Orleans styled funk in the tradition of the Meters, and recorded with a lot of fidelity to the original sound. Not as amazing as the original, natch, but still surprisingly funky with a good earthy sound to it. Tracks include "Go Go", "Everybody Wants Some (parts 1-3)&quo ... CD

This funky combo kicks it hard on their second Blue Note album – expanding the group a bit more to include an alto player, which makes for a nice choppy jazz funk sound! The record's got a few appearances by famous guests – including Amel Larrieux, Black Thought, Talib Kweli & Hi ... CD

Great stuff from one of those groups who just keep on grooving over the years – always hitting hard with their own unique take on deep funk! We first loved Soulive back when the group were issuing music on self-produced CDs – and they've really come a long way in their sound, and have ... CD

Freestyle (UK), 2011. Used
Keyboard flavored funky, jazzy sweetness from The Fantastics – who've had a pretty terrific run of funky 45s and a tight full length – delivering their best work yet and one of our favorite albums on Freestyle of the past couple years with All The People! There's a real love of ... CD

Marlow, 2011. Used
One of the best new funk albums we've heard in years – and one that really does an amazing job of putting equal emphasis on intrumentation and deep soul vocals! Slim Moore comes across like some lost singer from the early 70s funky 45 generation – gritty and upfront, with a quality ... CD
