Back in 2006, Booka Shade were the hottest property in dance music, the German duo — which consists of Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier — had just released the follow-up to their hugely popular debut album, and were at the helm of one Berlin's most respected imprints, Get Physical.
What was so special about ‘Movements’ is it was better than their excellent debut album, 'Momento', something that doesn’t happen all that often in dance music.
Tracks like ‘In White Rooms’, ‘Nightfalls’, ‘Darko’, and ‘Mandarine Girl', were everywhere in clubland — especially in Europe.
To celebrate the album’s lasting impact, Booka Shade are set to re-release the album to mark its 10th anniversary. The album is also going to be remastered, and will feature a bevy of new remixes from the likes of Nils Frahm, Patrick Topping, Deetron, Jonas Rathsman, Eats Everything, Dennis Ferrer, M.A.N.D.Y, Andhim, Hunter/Game and Chi Tanh.
The duo are currently touring a special new live production of ‘Movements 10’ with festival appearances including SW4, Beat Herder Festival, Loveland Festival and Zurich Open Air Festival all in the works.
You can listen to the broodingly spooky remix from Milanese duo Hunter/Game below.
The album is set to drop Friday 14th October via Blaufield M10.
