Booka Shade


DJ Kicks

Written to accompany their thematic DJ Kicks compilation, 'Numbers' sees Arno Kammermeier and Walter Merziger, aka Booka Shade, take up vocal duties. It also features a typically groove filled disco paced drum pattern, addictively concise bassline and - here's the added novelty - a soaring feelgood Salsoul string arrangement. 'Estoril' sees Arno work the Latin rhythms, over which Walter drips a gooey analogue bassline and delayed horn, while the club version is a lush surefire dancefloor groove. Dark disco magic from Germany.
