The644 debuts with “Shaker” featuring Matt Rosa

The644

The644 is a new London-based songwriting/artist duo formed by Deniz and Shanel Jemal. Their debut single “Shaker” is out – and it’s grand. Featuring rapper Matt Rosa, it is a lively pop/rap tune with a compelling dance vibe.

“Shaker” combines Latin, urban and pop elements and flavours it with a layer of Middle Eastern melodies. Produced Anthony Trueman, it has a crisp bass-heavy sound.

We knew that we wanted to feature a Zurna in the chorus, which is a Middle Eastern folk flute sound. We started with Anthony Trueman (Producer), finding the bass line over a reggaetón drum loop. Shaking hips is a key movement that represents both cultures well, so we felt it fit throughout the lyrics to focus on appreciating the beauty of both of these cultural dances
