Get Shakes

Get Shakes are the Isle Of Wight’s Matt & Darren Farrow. The last eighteen months  have seen Get Shakes make a splash with their blend of punk-funk and jacking electronica thanks to their incendiary singles “Sister Self Doubt” & “Disneyland” , as well as their rocking live show. Citing Adam & The Ants, DFA, Ivan Smagghe and Optimo as key influences, Get Shakes are making dance music in a way that nobody else is at the moment. Their main stage, genre-straddling electro rock marks them out as natural heirs to the Chemical Brothers and Underworld.

 Having already featured on a variety of mix compilations,ranging from Modular’s Leave Them All Behind 2 and Wall Of Sound’s ShockRock through to the Fabric32:  Luke Slater album, Get Shakes are proving themselves to be a different proposition to the New Orderisms and Gallic-influenced glitch-house of their contemporaries.  With a true understanding of the mechanics of what makes great dance music, Get Shakes combine the pyrotechnic thrills of Jilted Generation Prodigy with the more subtle nuanced production of classic Detroit techno and Chicago house. They were well-deserved  winners of the electronic category of the 2007 Diesel U-Music competition and 2008 is already off to a flying start: “Sister Self Doubt “ features in new Hollywood movie “21” and “Disneyland”  in the latest instalment of Grand Theft Auto .

 As the title of their new ep suggests Get Shakes  are well and truly “BACK ON IT”….
