------------------- BOOKASHADE (Biography) ----------------
Berlin-based duo Booka Shade (Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier) have carved out a reputation as one of the most celebrated electronic acts to come out of Europe over the past two decades.
With their beginnings in Frankfurt and their sights originally on synth-pop, the duo Booka Shade quickly gained a strong following. In 2002 Booka Shade formed the now legendary dance label Get Physical Music (together with M.A.N.D.Y., Thomas ‘DJ T.’ Koch and Peter Hayo), where they would have a platform for their own music.
Their fifth studio album ‘Eve’, released in 2013, marked the last traditional club music album for Booka Shade. 2 years later in 2015 „Movements 10“, the 10 years anniverary of their milestone album, was the ultimate closure of the first chapter.
20 years, dozens of EP’s and 6 albums later, Booka Shade have become more than a household name, they have become synonymous with the spirit which drives electronic music and have set a precedent to which electronic music is still held to today.
'I GO, I GO' THE FIRST SINGLE OF 2019
Booka Shade kicks off 2019 by joining forces with Kaktus Einarsson from Fufanu for a new single on their imprint, Blaufield. Premiered by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1, ‘I Go, I Go’ features Kaktus Einarsson’s emotive vocal contributions united with Booka Shade’s signature hypnotic production style - textural atmospherics, choppy synth arpeggios and wandering, resonant bass tones alongside a bumpy rhythm.
"We met Kaktus at a festival in Ireland last summer where he played with his band, and when we talked it turned out that as a student he had been to our first show in Iceland, which by coincidence took place in Björk's former school."
Booka Shade ft. Kaktus Einarsson’s ‘I Go, I Go’ is the first in a string of releases in 2019 which will be collated into a collection of songs and released via the label in September 2019.
