Booka Shade recently announced they will be bringing their live show with full-scale production to London on Saturday 11 April at Electric Brixton. Pre-sale tickets for the event will go live for 24-hours exclusively on Ticketweb at 10am today, ahead of general release tickets tomorrow. The Berlin-based duo will be joining other acts as part of the Brixton Electronic series of events at the venue, following 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 Get Physical record label. Booka Shade came to prominence after releasing their 2005 hit single co-produced with M.A.N.D.Y. ‘Body Language’. The band also launched their Blaufield Music label in 2013.
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 a legacy of hosting parties, live performances and 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 three years. Other electronic music headliners have included Bicep, Gorgon City, Camelphat and Sonny Fodera.
