2016 sees Booka Shade release their 10 year anniversary of their Movements LP, and also the new release of their supercharged edit “Movements 10”. In lieu of their celebrations and achievements they deliver DHA with a progressive yet funky mix.
Booka Shade (Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeierthat) have caused quite the stir since they first started out back in 1995. They started off with 90s pop-synth experimentations in Frankfurt, releasing a number of their underground dance tracks, of whom most notable – “Una Musica Senza Ritmo” (90s synth diggers should give it an ear).
Back in 2002 the duo set their sights on the techno haven that is Berlin, leading them to attain a sterling reputation globally and a common project with M.A.N.D.Y. and DJ T – about to become one of underground’s most respected imprints – Get Physical.
The 2000s have seen the rise of the pair, from playing at world’s best festivals (from Sonar to Coachella) to packing a portfolio of over five albums, of ones we can count including the most notable one – Movements. In addition, a separate line as high on-demand remixes including work for Moby (Dream About Me), Hot Chip (Just Like We, Breakdown), The Knife (Marble House) under their arm. The most recent, Movements 10 LP, will be marked with a North America tour with a select run of dates in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and more.
Today’s mix really exemplifies the driving force behind their involvement in the electronic industry. The mix is complied of a diverse range of genres, exemplifying funky synths, dark and organic melodies as well as teasing those listening with a sense of the unexpected, and the ever awaited drop.
Their movements 10 LP is available to download now on Blaufield. The LP features remixes from Nils Frahm, Patrick Topping, Eats Everything and more.
