Booka Shade Set to Release New Album 'Eve' 11/1
"Named for the Manchester studio where members Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier crafted the songs that nearly marked their demise, the album marks a new beginning for the pair, who have remixed tracks by artists ranging from Depeche Mode to Kings of Leon," wrote John D. Luerssen today (10/29/13) about BOOKA SHADE's new album EVE on Rollingstone.com. "Despite their rocky road, they hung together and sparked a new lease on life in the process."
Fans can get an advance listen to EVE--the fifth album from German electronic music duo BOOKA SHADE--now through November 1 via the album premiere posted on Rollingstone.com at: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/house-duo-booka-shade-start-fresh-on-eve-album-premiere-20131029
EVE will be released on November 1 digitally and November 5 physically in several formats including vinyl which encompasses the full album along with the album's 12 tracks mixed into one file for enjoyable continuous play. The iTunes version will also feature a documentary about the making of the album with narration by BOOKA SHADE.
EVE features "Love Inc" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWJbT9djaYA) among other tracks that were recorded at Manchester, U.K.'s acclaimed EVE Studios, a "residential vintage recording studio" where musicians can live and work with rare, old-school recording equipment around the clock, and then brought back to their studio in Berlin for the finishing touches.
"... the disc balances the atmospheric, jazzy pulse of 'Many Rivers' with the artful 'Kalimera,'" adds Luerssen. "On the latter, a lilting piano meets the sound of a rumbling subway train. Still, it's the brilliantly built 'Crossing Borders,' which features the vocal assistance of deep house fixture Fritz Kalkbrenner and the trombone work of Groove Armada's Andy Cato, that begs to be heard, either on the dance floor or in a car commercial." Fritz Helder of Azari & III also appears on EVE lending his vocals to "Love Drug."
