Ikebe Shakedown

CD (Item 631788) Ubiquity, 2011 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



The much anticipated full length debut of Brooklyn Afro Funk and psych soul-influenced combo Ikebe Shakedown – following up their tight, promising EP on the Colemine label with an excellent self-titled set on Ubiquity! One of our favorite things about Ikebe Shakedown's style is the way they blend signature elements of classic Afro Funk and soul with more broadly influenced grooves. Heavy horns and pummeling drums, vamping guitar licks and elastic basslines are prominent and funky – but they work with more measured and spaced out material, too. It's roomy enough to let the individual musicianship shine, and the production is really great. Includes "Tujunga", "Kumasi Walk", "No Name Bar", "Tame The Beats", "Don't Contradict", "Refuge", "In Circles", "Asa-Sa", "The Hold Up", "The Viking", "Five Points", "Pepper", "Green & Black" and more.  © 1996-2021, 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.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

Lack Of Afro

Music For Adverts
Freestyle (UK), 2014. Used
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group!

RD Records (Japan), 2000. Used
The debut ep from Osaka Monaurail – a totally great Japanese funk combo – and one with a sound to rival the best of the Soul Fire and Daptone generation! As you might guess from the cover art, the group's got a sound here that really pays tribute to funky grooves of the 60s and 70s ... CD


Rubber Soulive
Royal Family, 2010. Used
Soulive pays homage to The Beatles – a straight up, raw & funky organ trio take on tracks from Rubber Soul (our favorite Beatles album, by the way) and other hits by The Fab Four – and it's great! There was a period from the mid 60s through the 70s in which a Beatles tribute LP, in ... CD

Groovy organ jazz from the Three Deuces – the trio of Eddie Roberts on guitar, Ian Rose on Hammond and Bill White on drums plus guest percussionist Bill White – a great little set recorded in London in 1996! The sound is strong and very authentic – like a lost 60s discovery ... CD

Robert Walter's 20th Congress

Money Shot
Fog City, 2000. Used
A killer album of soul jazz from Robert Walter – most famously known as the keyboardist with the Greyboy All Stars, but a killer player in his own right, and the leader of the soon-to-be famous 20th Congress! The group features some killer drumming by Stanton Moore of Galactic – and ... CD

Chico Mann

Manifest Tone Vol 1
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2006. Used
A great blend of funky rhythms and African roots – served up by Antibalas guitarist Marquitos Garcia! There's certainly an element of the Antibalas groove going on here – as many tracks have that percolated sense of rhythm that Antibalas borrowed from 70s African influences. But the ... CD

Black Sugar
Al Dente (France), 2015. Used
A great new showcase for the music of Alex Puddu – the contemporary groover who's given us some wonderful music over the years – including his famous Golden Age Of Danish Pornography sets! This album's more of a back-to-basics affair for Puddu – recorded with a tight combo, and a ... CD
