Booka Shade have been favorites of dance music fans of many tastes for the span of four full-length albums, and the Berlin-based duo have just announced the details of their fifth — entitled Eve. In their club/concert hall performances they combine live instrumentation and machinery in a way unparalleled by his peers and through their much-celebrated career, they’ve carved out distinct niche for themselves. The album is due out at the beginning of November (on the 1st digitally and on the 5th on Embassy One), but to get fans excited the pair uploaded a full stream of the first single off the LP. “Love Inc” is track two but its remix package will be released on October with contributions from Hot Since 82, Emperor Machine, Richie G, and Booka Shade themselves.
Though DA‘s Sunday Morning Medicine won’t be dropping till tomorrow, Booka Shade’s new original “Haleshop” is something sweet and soothing for your Saturday.
