Overstating the understated

Ok, so I took the evening off, so sue me. A good friend, Jens, offered free tickets to Booka Shade at Rust, which in my world is an offer you can't refuse. Anyways I'm sick of my thesis, and if I was to stand any chance of actually finishing the damn thing this week, I needed to just take my mind of it, for a few minuttes at least.
Booka Shade were the masterminds behind last years most understated brilliant piece of techno - Movements. Merziger and Kammermeier as they're known when not producing, DJ'in, performing, or managing the Get Physical label, have created a unique brand of electronic music, which always seems to be just a milisecond of beat or too slow - pure genious
The concert was decent, the place too packed, and the venue too small. It was pretty clear from the first bass kick, that people were there for the hits - apparently Booka Shade have a massive crossover appeal. Night Falls, the third song of the night received a roar. The new stuff was pretty trancy, but with the trademark Booka sound. Highlights: modern classics Mandarine Girl and Body Language (Interpretation).

New track which rocks:
Booka Shade - Tickle

Older track, modern classic:
Booka Shade - Mandarine Girl (Album Version)

Get them via Beatport or Juno
