One of the biggest surprises from Gorgon City's debut album Sirens was the huge single "Go All Night," which found Jennifer Hudson channeling her inner house diva atop a soulful, throwback number. We got word that a remix pack for "Go All Night" has been sorted out, and we're loving that German duo Booka Shade got in the studio to churn out this version. They lifted some of the atmosphere from the original, as well as that grooving bassline and s...

Introduction

Booka Shade are Berlin-based duo Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier, and have emerged as one of the most pioneering electronic music acts of the past two decades. Booka Shade return with their fifth studio album ‘Eve’ released on 1st November 2013, through Embassy One/Blaufield Music.

In 2002 Booka Shade formed dance label Get Physical with M.A.N.D.Y, Thomas 'DJ T' Koch and production partner Peter Hayo, and became one of the worlds key dance labels. They released their first three albums on Get Physical, ‘Memento‘ (2004), ‘Movements’ (2006) & ‘The Sun & The Neon Light‘ (2008). Their last album, 'More!' (2010), was released on Cooperative Music. Tracks such as ‘Night Falls’, ‘Mandarine Girl’ and ‘In White Rooms’ became crossover hits and arguably their biggest hit ‘Body Language’ which is sung by festival goers the world over and was also used as a sample by will.i.am in ‘Get Your Money’ in 2007. Their most recent DJ mix ‘Tomorrow Belongs To Us’ also reached #1 on the Beatport charts in 2012.

The Berlin pair went on to become highly sought after remixers, lending their magic touch to artists such as Depeche Mode, Moby, Yello, Hot Chip, Kings Of Leon, Tiga, and The Knife.

Booka Shade have earned a huge live reputation with their substantial and innovative live shows and in 2010 were named by Resident Advisor as one of the world’s Top 5 live acts. Already this year they have opened for Depeche Mode at the first show of their current world tour in Tel Aviv and headlined the Gobi Stage at Coachella. In 2012, they were hand picked by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong to mix his annual ‘All Gone Ibiza’ compilation. DJ appearances so far this year have included the Space Ibiza opening party, and a range of U.S festivals including the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

Fifth album ‘Eve’ was recorded in Manchester’s acclaimed Eve Studios and was finished in their home town of Berlin. The 12 track album includes special guests Fritz Helder (Azari & III), Fritz Kalkbrenner and Groove Armada’s Andy Cato on trombone.

Booka Shade’s music absorbs influences from all genres: classical, rock, jazz, film score which has arguably contributed to their wide appeal. Their impressive contribution to electronic music across many genres since 2004's ‘Memento’ has seen them become dance music pioneers.

Booka Shade released ‘Eve’ on 1st November 2013, through Embassy One under exclusive license from Booka Shade´s new label ‘Blaufield Music’
