BOOKA SHADE FT. FRITZ KALKBRENNER – CROSSING BORDERS

Booka Shade Ft. Fritz Kalkbrenner – Crossing Borders

2013 was a phenomenal year for Booka Shade, having returned with their fifth artist album ‘EVE‘ and toured the world with their incredible live shows. Stand out gigs from 2013 included their live set at London’s Oval Space and their live performance at the 20th Anniversary of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix at The Warehouse Project.

‘Crossing Borders’ was co-written with fellow Berliner and vocalist Fritz Kalkbrenner, most notably for his vocals on ‘Sky & Sand’ with his brother, Paul. Booka Shade first met Fritz when he asked them to remix one of his songs, “as we´re fans of his voice, we thought it would be a great idea if he would sing a vocal for one of our demos for the new album. He came to our studio with the lyrics of ´Crossing Borders´ and within 1 hour, the song was recorded.”

‘Crossing Borders’ provoked a huge reaction with the fans and has resulted in artists lining up to make their mark on the track. In the coming months you can expect to hear remixes from the likes of Kolombo, Chopstick & Johnjon, Mathias Kaden, Pleasurekraft, Chi Thanh as well as Booka Shade themselves. Featuring Andy Cato from Groove Armada on the trombone, ‘Crossing Borders’ is enriched with acoustic and chilling electronic tones and demonstrates the trials and tribulations of the every day struggle “we’ve got to go on, even if we stray, crossing borders to another side”. Let’s celebrate the Booka Sound!
