Spirit Of Dance Music

Berlin-based duo Booka Shade (Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier) have carved out a reputation as one of the most celebrated electronic acts to come out of Europe over the past two decades.

Merziger and Kammermeier founded influential label Get Physical in 2002, together with M.A.N.D.Y. and DJ T. They also contributed directly to the label’s expansion releasing their first three LPs, “Memento” (2004), “Movements” (2006) & “The Sun & The Neon Light” (2008), followed by “More!” (2010) and “Eve” (2013). In addition to their proven skills in effortlessly combining irresistible rhythms with melodic hooks, the Berlin duo has always stood out for their spectacular live shows, which constantly feature among the favourites in the annual Resident Advisor lists. This led them to be chosen by Depeche Mode as road and stage companions for one of their recent tours. They have also produced several remixes for artists and bands including Moby, Yello, Hot Chip, Tiga and The Knife, among many others.
