Mongo Shakers are musical collaborators who’ve worked together for around 30 years in East London. The core members have been Matt & Chris, who have mostly tinkered away in various home built studios, drafting in pals to play on recordings, but also playing the odd gig.
Over time I’ve seen the sophistication of their work increase to the point where I class myself as a fan who’d happily buy their stuff. Anyhow, very sadly Chris died in February 2017 & Matt has crafted a labour of love to complete their final work together as a full album & as a tribute to Chris.
If you think soundscapes, Moby, Holger Czukay with a sprinkle of KLF, you won’t be far off. If that’s your bag, have a listen. Any and all feedback would be appreciated by the numerous musicians on the work.

Apologies that for some reason, I can’t make the above links ‘live’, but you can type them in for yourselves easily enough, I’m sure – it IS worth it!
