Booka Shade"Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier aka German producers and live act Booka Shade rounded off 2006 in style. The Berliners were named by the writers at Resident Advisor, the UK’s leading electronic music website, as the best live act and won the best album award for their second long-player, ‘Movements’. The album also featured in many other international end of year top 10 charts." [their official bio]

"Booka Shade, along with M.A.N.D.Y., and the rest of the Get Physical label were THE sound of 2005. Penning minimally melodic stormers that rocked every genre of dancefloor, Booka Shade arguably put on the best show of WMC 2006 at the Fixed/Revolver party." [David Bruno - yesterday]
