    I saw them in LA last year, so they probably at least played a few other cities, and before anyone says they weren't big then, they were just as famous in 07 as they are now. Movements was hyped by Pitchfork and all that in 06.

    I mentioned the new Booka in another thread, but haven't actually listened yet. Will listen now.

    I have seen Booka in denver, Detroit, And Miami. Definetly one of the best live electronic acts I have ever seen. The energy is amazing and the music is even better. This act is a must see for all. I will be front and center.

    How were they at coachella?

    It was a fantastic show here in Denver on Saturday. They really get the crowd into it.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Fucking amazing. They killed it in broad daylight, I think watching them play in a sweaty nightclub doing a full-length set would be game over.

    booka shade are electrohouse, electroclash (depends who you ask) from berlin

    minilaism is really popular in berlin, like ricardo villalobos

    You got to these festivals and you see these bands that are shit, just making noise. But you put this in and it's ten times louder with more bass. It makes loads more noise.

    here's some news, EP coming soon.

    Booka Shade are set to release their new remix EP 'Scaramanga' next month.

    Returning last year with their album 'More!' Booka Shade sounded harder, better, faster, stronger. Informed by their extensive live work, the album pushed the German producers into new territory.

    At times boasting a rock edge, 'More!' was greeted warmly by fans. Booka Shade took the album on tour, playing a large number of dates across the globe.

    Touring hard, the band have been able to squeeze out a few singles. Drawn from their recent album, Booka Shade are planning to release their new EP 'Scaramanga' as a digital download next month.

    Given the remix treatment, 'Scaramanga' is shoved into several new directions. Available on 12 inch vinyl, Booka Shade's new EP contains re-workings from Reset Robot, Dusty Kid and the German pair themselves.

    For the digital EP, the producers have hooked up with a number of guests. The five track release comprises the material from the vinyl version, alongside two specially commissioned new remixes.

    Hey Today! have taken on 'Scaramanga' while Schadenfreude will also contribute to the new EP. Available digitally, the initial download release will be handled exclusively by the Beatport site.

    Meanwhile, 12 inch pressings are coming of the factory right now. Due to be given a download release next month, Booka Shade have confirmed that three more remixes are set to surface.

    Due to erupt onto a blog near you, producers such as Javier Longares, Marascia and Gainsford have all been linked to the project.

    Booka Shade are due to release 'Scaramanga' next month. Tracklisting:

    Booka’s Manga Mix
    Dusty Kid Remix
    Hey Today! Remix
    Reset Robot Remix
    Schadenfreude Remix

    This thread needs revival because Booka Shade needs to return to the polo fields. I've only had the opportunity to see them live once and I was blown away by their show. Please GV make this happen.

    damnit I could have done without reading this but everyone must suffer now.

    The fact that they havent released their north american tour dates yet and seeing that they are playing Ultra music festival (east) in march gives me high hopes that they'll be on the west in april. If this shit happens, im going to spaz the fuck out and if Underworld is added with booka shade, id seriously die in music heaven.

    Don't fucking tease me - this would be right up there with trentemoller as an epic and unexpected electronic music booking.
