BOOKA SHADE Live at RCA Bangkok
RCA Bangkok are very proud to present Booka Shade, an eagerly awaited return of one of the world’s most in demand & prolific electronic music acts. (This will be a DJ performance with live elements, not a full live show.)
Booka Shade is a German house duo, Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier. They are described as veterans of the Frankfurt electronic music scene. They have released 5 studio albums including Memento (2004) Movements (2006), The Sun & The Neon Light (2008), More! (2010) and Eve (2013) and a mix album for DJ Kicks.
In the early 1990’s the dynamic duo created music under the name ‘Planet Claire’. They released a self-titled album and the act name came from a ‘B 52’s’ song, called…. You guessed it, ‘Planet Claire’!
They changed their name to Booka Shade and had their first major breakthrough in 2004 with the Memento album. They then collaborated with M.A.N.D.Y. and created the Ibiza track of the season ‘Body Language.’ This track was later sampled by will.i.am in the song ‘Get Your Money’ from his album Songs about Girls. It also appears in the video game Forza Motorsport 2 for Xbox 360, as the M.A.N.D.Y. vs Booka Shade version.
