Booka Shade released their 9th album Dear Future Self. this month (May 8th) over their own record label Blaufield Music.
The album was recorded all over the globe, from New Zeland to their own city, Berlin. It features colaborations with artists from Iceland, South Africa, England and Germany.
The tracks they presented were road tested over 18 months, from amazing sunsets to industrial warehouses, big festivals and small clubs, putting only the essentials in this amazing album.
The title track features the collaboration of South African spoken word artist Lazarusman, whose core belief is that vocals in electronic music should leave a lasting impression more than just provide a human touch to it. And I might say that, within the pandemic we live today, the title track shows a great message, perhaps more than just a mere coincidence.
The album also features collaborations from Eli & Fur (DJ/Producer duo from England, that have released tracks like You and I under Anjunabeats), Kaktus Einarsson (from Iceland, best known for his work in the Icelandic-band, Fufanu) and Joplyn (released Outer Space on 2019).
It’s almost like each track carries with it a piece of each place where they tested them, always carrying those iconic bass lines, kicks and snare that they have used us to.
