Shakti was the very first recorded project for Maurice Engelen aka Praga Khan and Jos Borremans aka Chris Inger, who later on became the Belgian newbeat and techno moguls with a dozen of simultaneous projects throughout the late 1980s and early-mid 1990s, most notably as the Lords Of Acid.

Shakti started as a gothic / New Wave sound influenced band, and gradually turned over to the more commercial euro-techno sound, adding Nikkie Van Lierop aka Jade 4U to their lineup. By this time, already recording under a few other guises, the Shakti project was abandoned.

The entire Shakti material, which consisted of one EP and one single, was compiled and released in 1990, in addition to a few more contemporary material from the era which was eventually released under the name of Jade 4U.
