Shake Aletti are an electro-pop-funk duo from Sheffield. Anyone into the underground electro scene might have come across this band without realising after their remixes (Frankmuzik, Bat for Lashes or more recently, Moloko's 'Roisin Murphy') have been tearing up electro clubs across the country.
On first listening to the demo of 'More Bounce' on their myspace, it sounds a like a mix of Chromeo with a little Flight of The Conchords thrown in for good measure. A funk-tastic homage to women with the larger frame and with lyrics like, 'She puts a little extra ache into shake when I take her out dancing' you have can't help but love these guys.
'Digital Connection' is slow-funk-electro as slick as they come. And not only that...they offer it up as a free download on their myspace.
I have to thank my friend Ryan (Ryans twitter) for getting me into this band and for those of you who haven't already checked them out you can find them at http://www.myspace.com/shakealetti
