Great EP by Chicago based The Shake Up Connection on the fine Amplified imprint. New name for me and apparantly a debut 12", but whoever's behind the moniker sure knows what he's doing. All four tracks are moody, Detroity disco numbers with those deep, loopy drums we love so much. My pick of the bunch is The Shake Up theme, a lovely midtempo disco nugget.

Great stuff that will sit perfectly in both disco and house sets. Nice to see Amplified offering a home for new talent too.
