It's been a long and winding road that's got Berlin-based Booka Shade to where they are now. Following their formative synth-pop outings in the 90s and releases on labels like R&S, Music Man and Tommy Boy, Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier sought a new, more personal outlet for their creative energies. They found this through Get Physical Music, which they co-founded in 2002. Since then they've been at the production helm of countless releases by M.A.N.D.Y, DJ T., Sunsetpeople and Chelonis R. Jones, and the label has quickly grown to become one of the most respected and popular underground dance music labels around. Booka Shade leapt to the forefront of contemporary dance music in 2005 with their classic singles "Body Language" and "Mandarine Girl", and their debut full-length 'Memento'. Since then they've released a string of hit singles, become one of the world's most sought-after electronic live acts and developed their unique sound on the acclaimed albums 'Movements' and 'The Sun & The Neon Light'. Since then they've toured as hard as ever, bringing their sound live and direct to audiences all over the globe. Catch Booka Shade at Tripod on April 24th. Tickets are priced €25. Doors 11pm
