SHAKA LOVES YOU: Boogie (feat. FULLEE LOVE)/ Get Down (Vinyl 7″)

Rating: ★★★★★ Here, and not for the first time (in actual fact the third, but the reason will become clear in a moment) the monkey is giving some shine to Shaka Loves You and Fullee Love’s funk bombtrack, Boogie. Arguably the finest hour of both the production team and Love (a.k.a. MC Soup a.k.a J5’s Zaakir – here singing not rapping), the track is guaranteed to make clubs explode into


SHAKA LOVES YOU:  Boogie EPDid you catch Shaka Loves You’s recent Boogie single on Bomb Strikes? You know, the one featuring Fullee Love (a.k.a Jurassic 5’s Soup) in full funk vocalist mode? I hope you did as it’s the boys’ best track ever and finds them hook n slinging their way to something rather special. Now it’s the turn of the Boogie EP from which that cut was lifted. Of the other three tracks included


SHAKA LOVES YOU feat. FULLEE LOVE:  BoogieRating: ★★★★★ Long established as party breaks edit kings, Glasgow’s Shaka Loves You hook and sling their way to something rather special for the next release on the Bomb Strikes label with new cut Boogie. Done in collaboration with former Jurassic 5 rapper Soup – in full funk vocalist mode here as Fullee Love – the track couldn’t have a more apt name. Like kindred spirits The Allergies, SLY reinvigorate ancient funk beats by cleaning shit up, beefing shit up and adding new vocals. And in doing so here, they turn in one righteous beast of party starter. The very thing in fact that ought to get the Craig Charles seal of approval – ooh – whatdyaknow – it already has. Boogie is the lead cut off the boys’ forthcoming EP.
(Out 2 November on Bombstrikes)

PROFIT feat. JFB:  Booking Hot (SHAKA LOVES YOU remix)Part two of tonight’s remix frenzy is the Shaka Loves You boys’ take on the final single from emcee PRofit‘s True Colours album – the JFB-featuring Booking Hot. Out go the wah-wah guitar, and electro beat of the original and in come a rather more funky break, horns and a Rhodes melody, the latter of which lends something of a pensive air to proceedings despite the undoubtedly

ANDERSON. PAAK:  Come Down (SLY Melba edit)(Video)The Shaka Loves You crew have been waiting a few days for some love for this while the monkey has been fighting global online crime but the philosophy at MB Towers is that it’s better late than never to rep. their peachy Anderson. Paak SLY Melba edit of Come Down. While the original dallied in a sweaty basement club with funky breaks and muted rock guitar chops, SLY take

SHAKA LOVES YOU:  Summer Sessions Vol. 3 Day & Night (2017) Free downloadForget Wimbledon, it wouldn’t be summer without the Shaka Loves You summer mix which this year is entitled the Summer Sessions Vol. 3 Day & Night. Is it called that because the boys are at it twenty-four seven? Possibly, if you mean being behind the wheels of steel, for this celebrates the multitude of sets they play – both in the day (represented by funk, soul, hip-hop and reggae)


Shaka Loves You have left it a full year to follow up their first disco drop on the Goodgroove label – presumably because it’s been a non-stop coke-snorting, sex in the toilets, mirrorball hustle during the past twelve months. That notwithstanding, the new four-tracker, with an almost identical title to the first, Goodgroove presents: Shaka Loves You once again ensures any night is ladies night from
