De Staat collab with Shaka Ponk charts in France

French rock band Shaka Ponk have released their new ApeTizer EP yesterday, 27 June. On this EP, track “Rocksta” is featured as a collab between Shaka Ponk, Skin from Skunk Anansie, KillASon and De Staat. The EP has already entered the French iTunes charts at nr. 2.

As Shaka Ponk explains in the YouTube video of “Rocksta” they think De Staat are “geniuses. We discovered that band in this crazy music video Witch Doctor”.

Shaka Ponk has approached De Staat after seeing their show in Paris last November, and asked them to participate. Tracks went back and forth between their studios in Paris and Nijmegen until this final version was born. On the track Rocksta, you can hear Torre and Rocco from De Staat performing their own lyrics.

More news on De Staat, because they are about to sell out the 4th show in a row in November. They will be building a huge concert tent in their hometown Nijmegen, and perform in the middle of the audience, In the Round. A very special co-production between Mojo Concerts, Doornroosje and EGO.
