Booka Shade are a hugely popular German house duo who make deep, melodic jams that have won them armies of fans across Europe and the States. Their releases come out on Harthouse and R&S and run from surprisingly buttoned down, quirky jams to hands-in-the-air euphoria. They've remixed everyone from Moby to Fischerspooner, the Knife, Hot Chip and Tiga, and one of their biggest tracks was sampled by will.i.am on his track Get Your Money. Their live shows are vast, blissed-out adventures in electronica, famed for their use of live drumming. This night at the Mixing Room should be one of the biggest electronic dates of the year.
