Released: Nov 2007
Label: Shakatak Masters
That Shakatak LPs are liberally scattered through Continental flea markets suggest how this airy funk group permeated the Euro-disco mindset. Motorbass sampled "Easier Said Than Done," from 1982's Night Birds, for a 1997 remix of Daft Punk's "One More Time"; Annie used it for 2004's "No Easy Love." Shakatak's velvety Moog solos, puckered slap bass, lilting choruses and Brazilian/R&B/smooth-jazz fusion are staples on lite FM stations worldwide. Amateur porn producers can turn straight to "Streetwalkin'" for some suitably lugubrious sax work; "Fly The Wind" is a time-travelling rick-roll.
