Booka Shade have announced they will be bringing their innovative live show with full-scale, insane production to London on Saturday 11th April at Electric Brixton. Pre-sale tickets for the event will go live for 24-hours exclusively on Ticketweb at 10am on Thursday 6th February, ahead of the release of general sale tickets on Friday 7th February.
The Berlin-based duo will be joining other celebrated acts as part of the Brixton Electronic series of events at the venue, following sell-out shows with Vitalic, 2manyDJs and Ed Banger Records. Booka Shade recently released their single ‘Dear Future Self’, revealing a first glimpse into their forthcoming major project for 2020 later this year. The duo has previously released seven artist albums since the start of their journey in 2002.
Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier began their DJ and producer career in Frankfurt, where they launched their now legendary Get Physical record label. Booka Shade came to prominence after releasing their 2005 worldwide hit single co-produced with M.A.N.D.Y. ‘Body Language’, which has become one of the most enduring house music anthems, bolstered by their breakthrough performance at Sónar that year. The band launched their Blaufield Music label in 2013 to great acclaim.
Booka Shade have opened for Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk and headlined stages at Coachella, Glastonbury, Electric Forest and Red Rocks. They have also displayed their diversity playing at Montreux Jazz Festival and Lollapalooza.
With an impeccable legacy of hosting parties, live performances and bestselling events, Electric Brixton has brought events such as Ants, Music On with Marco Carola and the Amnesia Ibiza ‘Pyramid’ shows to London over the last 3 years. Other electronic music headliners have included Bicep, Gorgon City, Camelphat and Sonny Fodera.
Electric Brixton will be hosting state-of the-art, large scale production for this event, which the venue’s main room showcases perfectly.
