Exclusive Premiere: Booka Shade Feat. Fritz Kalkbrenner – Crossing Borders (Pleasurekraft Remix)



It’s Friday and we’ve been in the mood for the weekend ever since we listened to our new radio show hosted by SE7EN & Jodie Layton which broadcast on Pioneer Radio 10am this morning!

This week we were chatting and delivering musical goodness with this week’s Label showcase coming from Audio Rehab and speaking speaking to none other than Pleasurekraft  as we exclusively premiered their remix of Booka Shade’s ‘Crossing Borders’ before DJ Spoony picked his Garage Track of the Week and Larry Sun shared his Charity Shop Find as  Krafty Kuts dropped in to wish us Happy Birthday and pick his bass track of the week.

However busy folk that you are  we appreciate that some of you may have missed our earlier Booka Shade premiere so are giving you a second bite of the cherry by sharing it again here.

There are few bigger names in electronic music than Booka Shade with the duo winning plaudits around the world for both their abilities in the studio as well as on the stage with a host of accolades behind them and their list of festival appearances doubling up as a summary of the worlds biggest festivals over the past decade. It hasn’t always been this way though and the duo from Frankfurt have had to work hard every step of the way for their success. Since meeting as children Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier have enjoyed a rollercoaster of a journey that took then from a high school synth pop duo, to releasing forgotten records on now legendary imprints such as R&S, being the shadowy hand behind a series of German pop releases for major labels before moving to Berlin and taking things to the next level alongside some more night club inspired friends to take the electronic music scene by storm both as producers and former label bosses of the now highly regarded imprint Get Physical.

Never ones to rest on the laurels, the pairing have now embarked on the latest part of their journey together forming new label Blaufield Music which would go on to host their latest album Eve. The latest effort to land from the album comes in the form of the release of Fritz Kalkbrenner collaboration  ‘Crossing Borders’ which hits shelves on the 23rd March. To celebrate the release Booka Shade has exclusively shared the premiere of fellow DT favorites Pleasurekraft’s remix of the number.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
