BOOKA SHADE FT. FRITZ KALKBRENNER – CROSSING BORDERS

Posted in cutTheNoize on February 20th, 2014 by alt

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!

Booka Shade - Love Inc

If Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier chamber go into the studio to work on new material for their long-term project Booka Shade, the result is basically so undergroundig and promising at the same time. Numbers like “Mandarine Girl” and “Body Language” have demonstrated this impressively in the past.

A balancing act, just a few electronic music producers can manage for such a period and so successfully.

Booka Shade – All Gone Pete Tong Compilation Album Sampler

Posted in cutTheNoize on June 14th, 2012 by alt

You won’t believe that i listened to more than 50 dj-mixes in the last weeks, really. And i don’t want to be arrogant, but i really wonder what some DJs are thinking when they do a mix-compilation. A string of dulled clubtracks with no concept, no highlights, no read thread, no passion. It is poor! But it seems there is hope. And the hopes name is Booka Shade and Pete Tong who are releasing the well know “All Gone” compilation right to the start of the balearic summer season. But help yourself and listen into this great selection of music.

But before you buy listen to the  All Gone Ibiza 2012 – Pete Tong & Booka Shade Podcast.
