Germany’s Booka Shade kick start 2018 with "Night Surfing / Future Primitives" on the Blaufield label in style.

Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier aka Booka Shade have carved out quite the career over the past two decades via their Get Physical imprint launched alongside M.A.N.D.Y and DJ T. which showcased the pairs deft production abilities and gained them a global following. Fast forward to 2018 and the pair are developing their Blaufield imprint and touring their live show across all corners the globe, still driven by their passion for melodious, euphoric and powerful electronic music.

"Night Surfing" takes the lead on the release and sees Booka Shade employ an amalgamation of dynamic analogue synth strings, bubbling arpeggios and tension building atmospherics alongside shuffled percussion and heady bass tones to create a raw and emotive dance floor cut with a nod to the Balearic sound.

"Future Primites" follows and tips the focus over to hooky bell like synth chimes, spiraling bass leads and choppy bass hits which ebb and flow around soaring vocal murmurs and direct 4/4 rhythms to further fuel the infectious groove.
