Shaka Loves You - Funk Disco House Hip Hop Nu-Disco Live Act in Glasgow

Shaka Loves You Short Info

Scotland’s bad-boy AV funkers Shaka Loves You boast a full audio-visual show with live percussion. Effortlessly fusing elements of funk, soul, disco & hip-hop with custom visuals and turntablism, SLY create the perfect, good times live show.

Since forming in 2012 Jamie & Marty have already shared the stage with heavyweights such as Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, DJ Yoda, Mr Scruff, James Lavelle & A.Skillz and have an impressive number of gigs and performances behind them.

As well as their weekly residency at Glasgow's home of funk & soul; The Buff Club, the boys have played clubs from Edinburgh to Amsterdam as well as festival appearances up and down the UK including T in the Park, Beat Herder and Eden. Add to this a Canadian mini-tour in the Summer of 2015 and you get a picture of how the boys are spreading their funky sound far & wide.

Complementing their live show, SLY are regularly releasing their own music and videos. 2016 has got off to a flying start with Craig Charles picking up the boys' forthcoming track Soul On Fire on his 'What's big in 2016' show on BBC 6 Music. This track also attracted the attention of Mixmag, which gave it an 8/10 review. Their first EP, released in 2013 hit the top spot on Juno download and their second, a heavily disco influenced affair released on Goodgroove Records also climbed the nu-disco charts to No.1.

With a busy gigging and production schedule ahead 2016 is set to be another big year for Shaka Loves You.
