Shaft Biography (Wikipedia)

Shaft were a British electronic music production duo, known for their covers and remixes of "(Mucho Mambo) Sway" and "Mambo Italiano". Shaft peaked at No. 2 in the UK Singles Chart with their release of "(Mucho Mambo) Sway". The original version featured a vocal sample of Rosemary Clooney but Rizzo and Ireland were unable to clear the sample, so the vocal on the final track was sung by Claire Vaughan from Thurstonland, Huddersfield. They followed this with the release of "Mambo Italiano" which reached 12 in the UK chart. They went on to tour the world and win a gold disc for best performing group. Since then, they have recorded more songs such as "Kiri Riri Boom" and "Shake Seniora".
