Video: Shakka – Somebody I Used To Know/Climax ft. Vula

London born Shakka has been slowly creating a buzz in his local scene for some time now, continuing his ‘Shakkapella’ series, he collaborates with the equally impressive Vula to create a mashup of Gotye’s ‘Somebody I Used To Know‘ and Usher’s ‘Climax‘.

I’ve been a huge fan of his for some time – his ‘Shakka Affair‘ mixtape has some marvellous tracks, his voice is instantly recognisable and ferociously powerful at times. This creatively coined ‘Shakkapella’ video is the fourth in a series where the majority of the track is built up from him both singing and beatboxing. The outcome is remarkable and I will truly be shocked if he doesn’t blow up in the not-so-distant future. Check out the video above and find more from Shakka at Bandcamp.
