“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. 7 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.”
– STEVE AOKI

LISTEN: BOOKA SHADE “HONEYSLAVE” EP:
Even by Booka Shade’s unusually frenetic standards, the past two years have been intense. Since the release of their fourth album, ‘More!’, the Berlin-based duo, Arno Kammermeier and Walter Mer- ziger, have been touring almost non-stop. Notably, Booka Shade are highly sought after remixers, lending their production magic to respected artists such as: Depeche Mode, Moby, Yello, Hot Chip, Roxy Music, Kings Of Leon, Tiga, Dave Gahan and The Knife. Booka Shade had developed a uniquely melodic and emotion- ally rich brand of contemporary techno. This was club music, but club music built to last.
