Thanks to releasing a steady stream of quality house tunes over the years, German house duo Booka Shade — Arno Kammermeier and Walter Merziger — need no introduction to Big Shot readers. Yesterday it was announced that the Teutonic duo known for running the mighty Berlin-based Get Physical label have inked a deal with Steve Aoki’s LA-based Dim Mak. The relationship has gotten off to a quick start with Dim Mak just releasing Booka Shade’s Honeyslave EP.
Obligatory press gush from Steve Aoki about signing Booka Shade: “One of the first records that really got me into house and dance music was Body Language. It was at the time when electro started peaking its head out into the world and I became immersed in that culture. Seven years later, I am proud to say that Dim Mak is releasing this incredible EP by the legends Booka Shade. Their sound has been consistent and always getting more and more fresh. This EP is a testament to that.”
Have a listen to the title track below which boasts a cool, phased sound and driving melody line.
