Known for his collaboration on Wretch 32’s single Blackout, Shakka is a multi-dimensional producer and vocalist. Trained in music production and theory and in touch with hip, hop, jazz, indie and electronic music, Shakka is a box of tricks. This is best demonstrated by his captivating series of YouTube videos called Shakkapellas where he cleverly rearranges huge chart hits by beatboxing and layering vocals. His take on the work of Gotye, Azealia Banks and Frank Ocean have clocked up over a million YouTube hits between them.
Shakka releases his new Tribe EP in July and will follow his slot at Glastonbury by supporting Basement Jaxx. With support from Radio 1, 1Xtra and MTV as well as big name fans in MistaJam, Rita Ora and Wiley, Shakka is becoming THE name to drop.
