After producing music together for more than 25 years Berlin-based duo Booka Shade have emerged as one of the rare electronic music acts that channel the spirit and sounds of underground techno, but who can ignite any festival crowd, winning over fans across the rock and dance music scenes.
Co founders of get Physical Music with M.A.N.D.Y Booka Shade are world renowned for Anthemic tracks such as 'Mandarine Girl', 'In White Rooms' and 'Body Language'
In addition to their energetic live shows (named by the cutting-edge electronic music hub "Resident Advisor" as one of the world's Top 5 live acts), Booka Shade also enjoy moving crowds with their DJ sets. In 2012, they were hand picked by BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong to mix his annual "All Gone Ibiza" compilation. Memorable DJ appearances so far this year have included the Space Ibiza opening party, as well as a range of US festivals including the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Their most recent DJ mix also reached #1 on the Beatport charts.
Some bands are dance and some are indie, some are pop and some are punk, but very few cover all bases with equal aptitude and pizzazz. Digitalism certainly do.
The duo came together when Jens, working afternoons in Hamburg's Underground Solution record shop, became mates with Ismail 'Isi' Tufekci, who worked at a vinyl distributor. Isi and Jens bonded and became a DJ tag team. In jokey tribute to Bob Sinclar's Africanism All Stars Project and to their own love of electronic dance music, they scribbled the word 'Digitalism' on the CDs to identify them for playing out. Their 2005 tune 'Zdarlight' put them on the radar of a new network of young DJs across the globe pushing club culture in a heady rock'n'roll direction.
Digitalism were leaders in a vanguard of producers who broke through in the mid-Noughties, supported by DJs such as Erol Alkan and labels such as Parisian hipster magnet Kitsune, to whom they were signed.
Soon they'd honed a live show that became hugely in demand and took them all over the world, with firing tunes such as 'Jupiter Room' and 'Pogo' backing up the hype alongside remixes for Depeche Mode, Daft Punk , The Klaxons and many more before cutting back to a few DJ dates a month so they could concentrate on crafting the new album 'I Love You, Dude' in their Hamburg bunker studio.
Digitalism have always dragged indie kids to their electronic party and now they have yet more ammunition. Like all energized rockin' music there's a heavy seam of madness in Digitalism's sound, that gives the Prodigy a run for their money.
