It is a Change, a Strong One

The Sun & The Neon Light can certainly catch the clubward bound off guard, since the album flows in a completely different direction from Movements. It would have been easy for Booka to make Movements 2.0 and ride on the wake of the 2006 elektro phenomenon. Yet this album pushes new directions, integrating live elements to their work such as recording with orchestras and pulling out their old synths from the ‘80s that give new tones and textures to their work. It is a delicately crafted album that is strong in its own right. It is a job well done and proves Booka Shade’s artistic depth and range in my view. Also the Audio Commentary sheds some worthy light on Booka Shade’s intent with this album and sums it up well, better than any iTunes reviewer. Finally, I would like to point out that if you can come across the two CD set, it is well worth the digging. It is there, on the second cd, that you can find the Booka grooves that everyone craves. Yet the entire album is great, Booka Shade got’er done.

Beautiful!

It's no "Movements." Then again, could anything ever be that good? I am stoked with this new album. Charlotte is the definitive track for me. It highlights Booka Shade's brilliant melodic work through the bass lines and arpeggios. Every time Charlotte comes on, we're all dancin'!!

Notice to glitch makers.

First off I love Booka. Haven't heard the whole thing, but I already have Numbers (gorgeous song) memorized, Karma Car, and those are fantastic songs, and so far I'm enjoying this as well. HOWEVER, and I don't know if I'm the only one, but the distored "glitchy" percussive elements can be extrememly weird-inducing. My eyes water when I hear them. Happened as soon as I hit "play". Same thing happened to me with Apparat's "Walls" album. Otherwise fantastic songs are literally un-listenable (to me) because of my body's reaction. Don't be afraid of traditional hi hats and cymbals, etc. One of my favorite bands though. Here on iTunes search for the "dance department" podcast and you will get an amazing live set from them.

Biography

Formed: 1995 in Frankfurt, Germany

Genre: Dance

Years Active: '00s, '10s

From their techy, trancey beginnings to their more mature post-millennial work that incorporated pop, ambient, electro, techno, and funk influences, Frankfurt, Germany house duo Booka Shade maintained an elegance of style that owed little to whatever current dance music trends were on the scene. However, before they were Booka Shade, Arno Kammermeier and Walter Merziger had an early-'90s synth pop duo called Planet Claire, which in the tradition of Underworld and Ministry mutated into something very...
