FOR FREE DOWNLOAD AT
World-renowned electronic live act BOOKA SHADE have announced the release of their fourth artist album MORE!, set for its U.S. debut May 4 on Get Physical Music in cooperation with William Morris Endeavor’s Self Service.
Regarded by many as the best live electronic act in the world, BOOKA SHADE have enjoyed a meteoric rise since establishing themselves with their breakthrough album Memento in 2005. Worldwide club hits such as "Body Language," "In White Rooms" and "Charlotte" followed, as well as their second album Movements which is regarded as one of the last decade's classic electronic albums. Five years on and with the release of their fourth LP, the duo prove they are still hungry for More!
“The album is called More! More refined production, more multi-layered atmospheres, more emotion,” explains Arno Kammermeier, one half of BOOKA SHADE. “We wanted this album to be more energetic with strong grooves and of course the typical BOOKA SHADE melodies and atmospheres that we love. The album takes you through every stage of the night out; the excitement before you go out, the party, the late, late night, a bit of paranoia...and then the sunny morning of a new day.”
Across the album, Arno and partner Walter Merziger delve deeper than ever before, delivering what has to be their most dynamic and accomplished album to date, which is saying something for BeatPort’s 2009 Music Awards Winner for “Best Tech House Artist.” For the first time on any of their albums, they’ve collaborated with guest vocalists, sharing the limelight with electronic pioneers Yello on the song “Divine” and Get Physical favorite Chelonis R. Jones, electropop’s first cosmosexual antihero on the album’s first single “Bad Love.”
Fans will get an early taste of the album today with “Regenerate,” which features the odd, fragile vocals of Canadian Elsieanne Caplette, as the portmanteau avant-garde electronic anthem will be made available as a free download via www.bookashade.com. More! also features the BOOKA SHADE vs. M.A.N.D.Y track “Donut” redesigned as an interpretation track. A brand new video for the song can be found at: www.youtube.com/bookashade.
“We’re so excited about 2010 and taking the new album on the road. We’ve been working on these songs in the studio for the last 18 months and now is the time to hear them loud!” says Arno. “The world tour will start in February with festival dates in Australia, followed by club shows in key cities throughout Europe and a short trip to the U.S. to introduce the album stateside. I can safely say we have a big summer of festivals in front of us too!”
Indeed they do, with a full U.S. fall tour to be announced very soon and several upcoming key spring tour dates, including major festival appearances at the Disco Biscuits’ Bisco Inferno at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado May 29 and the Sasquatch Music Festival at The Gorge in Washington state May 30.
