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.
