“A night of funky beats and cool jazz fused with a reggae vibe and a live twist”
Dekata Project is the brainchild of sax player, songwriter and producer Sam Sharp, the name
originally coming from “dekata” – Japanese for move / attitude. On the production front, a chance
listen to a Gilles Peterson show on BBC Radio 1 a few years back resulted in Sam getting in touch
with Dave Jones, aka Zed Bias / Maddslinky, and they have been working together ever since. The
releases to date have also called upon a wide range of singers and instrumentalists, widely regarded
upon the soul / funk scene in London. These include soul diva Natalie Williams, and Yvette and Neo
from a capella group The Boxettes, who also recently featured on the epic beatboxing T-Mobile flash
mob advert at Heathrow Airport. It comes as no surprise then that the band regularly perform live,
including a recently series of gigs featuring full 9 piece band, for their own club night “Here’s The
Thing” at Favela Chic in East London.
Dekata Project has always about heavy beats, itchy guitar, driving funk bass lines, killer horns and
catchy soulful vocal hooks. Early output could be aligned with Moloko, Basement Jaxx, and Daft
Punk, and plaudits included radio 1, kiss FM iDJ, DJ Mag and also the London Metro who twice
nominated DP as single of the week for their releases of “Change My Way” and “At Least We Can
Dance”. The latter was released on vinyl and included remixes by Nu:Tone, Roska and Hint to great
