Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier, a.k.a. Booka Shade, are back with their new single ‘Crossing Borders’, which features Fritz Kalkbrenner on vocals and sees the German house duo back in the studio after their 2013 album EVE. In true Booka Shade style, ‘Crossing Borders’ is the kind of deep, smooth house track that brings a dance floor together in the small hours, and Fritz Kalkbrenner’s vocals feel a perfect fit. No word yet on a new album from the duo so far, but this new single is surely a sign of more to come, and the video is a trippy delight.
