GRIS GRIS (2019)

"Hypnotic Afrobeats power Austrian septet's expansive third album! Able to blind you into a trance and make you dance down to your knees, Gris Gris twists, blisters and burns  like a fevered dream...read more (MOJO)

"From the get-go, ‘I Can Feel the Heat Closing In’ demonstrates Shake Stew’s sense of control: their control of pace, their control of complex rhythms as well as their complete control of textures, all of which combine to create a powerful wall of sound. Throughout Gris Gris, Shake Stew maintain these elements and so much more, as the group...read more (Jazz Revelations)

"Ungeheurer Drive jetzt, das geht nur mit Disziplin, wie im Funk. Und da ist dieses so überlegte, unterhaltende und mitunter lustvoll dem Jazz in den Arsch tretende Album...read more (Der Spiegel Online)

"Ne se contentant pas de faire les choses à moitié (leur single durait 19 minutes), “Gris Gris” de la révélation autrichienne Shake Stew est un double album emballant. Afrobeat hypnotique, débauche d’énergie et grooves jazz pour un “something else” rafraîchissant...read more (France Musique)

RISE AND RISE AGAIN (2018)

"Their new album Rise and Rise Again is a wild trip in itself. Dramatic film score soundscapes develop into anthemic jubilation, thundering drums and bass propel saxophones and trumpet to dizzying heights.

„In places a high-octane mix of fiery jazz and hypnotic Afrobeat, elsewhere a more lyrical display, it‘s an uplifting album to listen to, probably even better live...read more (Jazz Journal)

“Shamanic smears of sound, a fusillade of colossal, architectural beats, and snaking, energy-drunk horn lines – vast, cinematic music!" (Wiener Zeitung)

THE GOLDEN FANG (2017)

"Style is a thing of the past – transformation and diversity are the new genre! Let the good vibrations flow! The Golden Fang is an intergalactic road movie for your ears.” (Kurier)

„This could already be the album of the year!“ (Jazzthetik Magazine)

"The 28-year-old writes sublime pieces, using the unusual instrumentation – three horn players, two basses and two drummers – to excellent advantage. Cleverly placed breaks make way for inspired solos: Clemens Salesny’s and Johannes Schleiermacher’s saxophones sound great; Mario Rom’s trumpet shines. Judging by this example of the younger generation, Austrian jazz is in excellent health." (OÖN)
