Something Physical

Booka Shade
Booka Shade are Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier, the masterminds behind most Get Physical output ( (M.A.N.D.Y., DJ T., Tomas Burfod and singles of Chelonis R. Jones to name a few!). Running their own production company and studio for the past 15 years, they have applied their wide range of talents not only to the realm of electronic music, but also many other media productions. After two early 90s synthpop album releases and a number of live tours, they switched their attention to dance music.Together with their old friends Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung, aka M.A.N.D.Y., they decided to found their own label and, after meeting Groove publisher Thomas Koch, aka DJ T, Get Physical was launched in early 2002.

Booka Shade has been my favorite of all the Get Physical production groups (slightly edging M.A.N.D.Y), releasing the amazing "Manderine Girl EP", along with the moody dance grooves of last years great "Momento LP". This year they have already released the highly praised "Night Falls EP", and later this month they will be releasing their much anticipated second album "Movements".

Here are two standout tracks from the new album "Movements":
Booka Shade - Night Falls
Booka Shade - In White Rooms
