Volume 2 of the very sucessful 12" mixes released in 2013. Shakatak have enjoyed a level of success and career longevity rarely paralleled in contemporary music but then Shakatak is a particularly unusual group. Because of the nature of their music their fan base is one that is far reaching while always retaining an “underground” element. This paradox sees the band, who are known primarily for their musicality, enjoying both high “cult” status and instant recognition as a household name due to their numerous hit recordings. Throughout their 31 year career Shakatak have released over 50 CDs…
Awesome funk from all eras of Shakatak's career! This double CD collects the extended mixes for 25 of Shakatak's Greatest Hits.

2CD set of 12" mixes 1979-1984 expertly remastered with superb sound. This collection of 12-inch versions of Sparks work pays homage to the extended mixes that were often contrived in the studio for use in discos. They found success in Europe in 1979 working with Italian-born producer Giorgio Moroder who, with Pete Bellotte, had turned US singer Donna Summer into a megastar with his hypnotically repetitive Eurodisco instrumental style. Beat The Clock and Tryouts For The Human Race were early results. They then moved on to register US dancefloor hits with the likes of I Predict and Cool Places - a collaboration with Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Gos.
