Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier, aka Booka Shade, are one of the most pioneering electronic music acts to come out of the past two decades. Booka Shade are set to release ‘Crossing Borders’ featuring Fritz Kalkbrenner from their 2013 album ‘Eve’ on the 23rd March 2014 on Embassy One / Blaufield Music.

‘Crossing Borders’ was co-written with fellow Berliner and vocalist Fritz Kalkbrenner. Fritz, a DJ and producer is celebrated for his warm soulful sound, championed for marrying hip hop, soul and house together and renowned all over the world for his beautiful voice, most notably for his vocals on his release ‘Sky & Sand‘ with his brother, Paul Kalkbrenner.  Booka Shade first met Fritz when he asked them to remix one of his songs, “as we´re fans of his voice, we thought it would be a great idea if he would sing a vocal for one of our demos for the new album. He came to our studio with the lyrics of ´Crossing Borders´ and within 1 hour, the song was recorded.”

Booka Shade have just announced a series of live tour dates for 2014 across Europe including two of Germany’s biggest rock festivals, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. They have also been invited to play their first London show of 2014 for the Noise Of Art’s ‘100 Years Of Electronic Music’ celebration at the Village Underground on the 25th April. Tickets to Booka Shade live shows can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/1j74qjI

‘Crossing Borders’ will be released on 7th March 2014 exclusively on Beatport and all platforms from the 23rd March on Embassy One/Blaufield Music.

Release date: 23rd March 2014

Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier, aka Booka Shade, are one of the most pioneering electronic music acts to come out of the past two decades. Booka Shade are set to release ‘Crossing Borders’ featuring Fritz Kalkbrenner from their 2013 album ‘Eve’ on the 23rd March 2014 on Embassy One / Blaufield Music. 

2013 was a phenomenal year for Booka Shade, having returned with their fifth artist album ‘EVE’ and toured the world with their incredible live shows. Stand out gigs from 2013 included their live set at London’s Oval Space and their live performance at the 20th Anniversary of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix at The Warehouse Project. They were joined by some of dance music’s biggest heroes of the past and present including Sasha, Hot Since 82, Pete Tong and Eats Everything.

‘Crossing Borders’ was co-written with fellow Berliner and vocalist Fritz Kalkbrenner. Fritz, a DJ and producer is celebrated for his warm soulful sound, championed for marrying hip hop, soul and house together and renowned all over the world for his beautiful voice, most notably for his vocals on his release ‘Sky & Sand‘ with his brother, Paul Kalkbrenner.  Booka Shade first met Fritz when he asked them to remix one of his songs, “as we´re fans of his voice, we thought it would be a great idea if he would sing a vocal for one of our demos for the new album. He came to our studio with the lyrics of ´Crossing Borders´ and within 1 hour, the song was recorded.”

 

‘Crossing Borders’ provoked a huge reaction with the fans and has resulted in artists lining up to make their mark on the track. In the coming months you can expect to hear remixes from the likes of Kolombo, Chopstick & Johnjon, Mathias Kaden, Pleasurekraft, Chi Thanh as well as Booka Shade themselves. Featuring Andy Cato from Groove Armada on the trombone, ‘Crossing Borders’ is enriched with acoustic and chilling electronic tones and demonstrates the trials and tribulations of the every day struggle “we’ve got to go on, even if we stray, crossing borders to another side”.

Booka Shade have just announced a series of live tour dates for 2014 across Europe including two of Germany’s biggest rock festivals, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park. They have also been invited to play their first London show of 2014 for the Noise Of Art’s ‘100 Years Of Electronic Music’ celebration at the Village Underground on the 25th April.

INFO
Rays of sunshine finally kick in as the always ebullient Kitsuné teams up with London’s Ponystep for a summer mix CD ‘très mode.’ On one hand, Kitsuné, the record label extraordinaire that gave you Digitalism, La Roux and Two Door Cinema Club, is also a fashion label. Sure its ever colorful Maison compilations – almost ten of them now – have become the reference in everything that’s new and quirky in the world of pop, breaking today many of tomorrow’s important artists. It’s also an elegant – young and modern – clothing line based on quality that keeps on expanding and is soon turning into a bit of a phenomena in Japan.

On the other, Ponystep, the noted fashion-style webmag based in east London has built a global reputation for all things fashion, art and music. It also happens to throw some of the best parties around. No wonder, the man behind Ponystep is Richard Mortimer infamous for his BoomBox night, which rocked the British capital and shook fashion circles the world over. BoomBox’s sense of freedom and electro/pop party brought a breath of fresh air to clubland and attracted celebrities (Björk, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Jeremy Scott…) along with London’s fashion elite (Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh, Henry Holland, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab…).

After Kitsuné released the BoomBox cd in 2007, an iconic snapshot of what was possibly the wildest club in the world at the time, the pairing is once more in full effect with Jerry Bouthier in the dj seat again. Bridging the Channel gap effortlessly, the Parisian relocated in London is Mortimer’s long-time musical collaborator-resident dj and also part of the Kitsuné family since early days. Sealing a vibrant appreciation based on mutual respect, Kitsuné-Ponystep – the ultimate fashion CD? – of course aims at mixing London edge to Parisian chic, two highly stylish and defined worlds yet quite apart from each other. Bouthier’s reputation as catwalk dj keeps on growing, notably since he was taken on board at Vivienne Westwood to provide the music to all her shows. He is a regular at the Fashion Weeks, season after season he produces the runway soundtracks of other fashion designers showing in London (Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Illincic, Peter Jensen, Osman…) or Paris (Romain Kremer, JunnJ, Estrella Archs, SongZio).

Fusing pop, electro, indie, disco and more, Kitsuné- Ponystep mixes tracks and remixes from some of the hottest names around (Roisin Murphy, French Horn Rebellion, Booka Shade, Aeroplane, Lindstrom, Munk…); a truly international cast that goes as far as Sydney, Perth, NYC, Oslo, Berlin, Munich, Manchester and inevitably Paris and London. Seventy minutes designed to make you dance…and also, at times, move you. In today’s troubled times, emotion has become fashion’s latest by-word and is certainly an essential ingredient here: plenty of songs, with vocals and people playing instruments such as new Xenomania artist Florrie, Northern Ireland’s finest Two Door Cinema Club, Belgium’s Das Pop, Vienna’s Bunny Lake, Sweden’s Lo-Fi Fnk, David E Sugar… a far cry from the dull thump you often find associated with fashion soundtracks. As such Kitsuné-Ponystep is not just a dj mix, Andrea Gorgerino, Bouthier’s studio side-kick and half of their recording project JBAG (also a versatile dj unit that has remixed Ladyhawke, Kylie, Sparks and SExpress), knows like no other how to apply magic, and a bit of drama, as he does on the shows to enhance the aural experience.

Aman Ellis

After the dismemberment of his successful band “The Great Big No!” in 2008, Aman Ellis turned to his side project “Crunkasaurus Sex.” After finding solace with midi controllers, studio monitors, and electronic production, he decided to get out of Alabama and move to the Big Apple. He landed in Brooklyn, NY, and changed his production name to the one he was born with, Aman Ellis. His first official release, All The Things – EP, was issued on February 11, 2010 on Abstract Logic Recordings.
