    Default Booka Shade...

    Has anyone listened to them? A friend of mine introduced me to them, and I am so loving this sound right now.

    Its like German Electrohouse. Really dope beats.

    Booka Shade is incredible. Best electronic live act I saw last year. If you have a chance to see them live, do not miss it.

    Also, their Essential Mix is money. One of the best.

    Yea that album is great! I've been listening to it non stop. Both amazing tracks. I've heard both of them on a few mixes that I have. Pong Pang is dope...actually most of the tracks on this ablum are killer.

    I'll def take a listen to the essential mix!

    Yea I have a mix by Audio Slave with that track on there. I think that's what got me to really like them.

    Also, they are so not playing in NY. I don't even know where I got that imaginary date from.

    I saw the thread about them at Coachelle....fuckin RAD!!!!!!!

    I found a copy of Movements with the following track listing:

    1. Night Falls
    2. Body Language
    3. Shimmer
    4. Paper Moon
    5. The Birds and the Beats/At the Window
    6. Darko
    7. Hide and Seek in Geisha's Garden
    8. Pong Pang
    9. Mandarine Girl
    10. Take a Ride
    11. Wasting Time
    12. In White Rooms
    13. Hallelujah USA
    14. Lost High

    But according to allmusic.com, there are only 12 tracks, with "Shimmer" and "Hide and Seek..." being the tracks not included. Could what I have be an import?

    yep, lovin' this sound.

    there's a lot of electro and this year, with a LOT of distortion and loud, thumping low-end (which i can totally appreciate), but it's nice to have something like booka shade to balance things out a little. they've got a good sense for mixing the danceable with the chill.
