Germany’s electronic alchemists Tube & Berger return with their brand new single ‘Ruckus’, available via Kittball Records on Beatport and via Embassy One, the German indie powerhouse that is home to Booka Shade, Röyksopp, Robyn, Moby and Björk etc., on all other streaming services and online stores worldwide
‘Ruckus’ is the first single taken from the dynamic duo’s highly anticipated sophomore LP which is forthcoming via Berlin’s Embassy One in March 2017.
This inspiring new single provides a fine taster of what’s to come, and follows Tube & Berger’s acclaimed 2012 debut LP ‘Introlution’ plus more recent outings on respected labels such as FFRR, Defected, Toolroom, Suara, – who released the duo’s legendary 2013 hit ‘Imprint of Pleasure’ – a track which not only reached No.1 on Beatport but also remained within their Tech-House Top 100 for over a year and which currently holds over 25 million YouTube hits and over 11 million streams on Spotify – and of course their very own Kittball Records.
In recent times Tube & Berger have been working hard on evolving their sound from pure club grooves to a more ‘live’ focused indie – electronica style, which ‘Ruckus’ showcases perfectly, encompassing a slick deep house groove with a pulsating synth bassline accompanied by a wealth of American-western-tinged guitar licks and an outstanding indie-rock vocal from Richard Judge who previously sang on the duo’s 2015 dancefloor anthem ‘Disarray’
‘Ruckus’ is available from September 23rd via Kittball Records on Beatport and via Embassy One on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music &Co.
German duo Booka Shade will release a remix EP for “Eve” album track “Love Drug,” featuring reworks from Maya Jane Coles, Andre Crom & Chi Thanh, Animal Trainer, Kaiser Souzai, Mihai Popoviciu and a Red Light mix from the duo. Below, you can watch the official video for the original track, which features vocal from Fritz Helder. Booka Shade’s Love Drug EP will drop on May 30th 2014 via Blaufield Music/ Embassy One.
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.
