Glasgow funksters 'Shaka Loves You' boast a full audio-visual show with live percussion. Effortlessly fusing elements of funk, soul, disco & hip-hop with custom visuals and turntable trickery, SLY create the perfect, good times live show. Since forming in 2012 Jamie & Marty have already shared the stage with heavyweights such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, Craig Charles DJ Yoda, Mr Scruff, James Lavelle & A.Skillz and have an impressive number of gigs and performances behind them. As well as their weekly residency at Glasgow's home of funk & soul; The Buff Club, the boys have played clubs from Edinburgh to Amsterdam as well as festival appearances up and down the UK including T in the Park, Beat Herder and Eden. Add to this a Canadian mini-tour in the Summer of 2015 and you get a picture of how the boys are spreading their funky sound internationally.
Complementing their live show, SLY are regularly releasing their own music and videos. 2016 got off to a flying start with Craig Charles championing the boys’ funk-infused track Soul On Fire for his 'What's big in 2016' show on BBC 6 Music. This track also attracted the attention of Mixmag, which gave it an 8/10 review in . Their first EP, released in 2013 hit the top spot on Juno download and their second, a heavily disco influenced affair released on the legendary Goodgroove Records also climbed the nu-disco charts to No.1 and gained support from the likes of Greg Wilson, Craig Charles and Dr. Packer.
