BTS: Booka Shade ‘ Crossing Borders feat. Fritz Kalkbrenner’

Berlin based electronic music experts, Booka Shade, have been pioneering electronics across various genres, bending their aesthetic towards whatever came their way. From their innovative and defining dance album, Memento, the pair have worked their magic incorporating influences from all over the place. As well as being sought after remixers, the group have cemented themselves as a live act not to be missed.

The duo’s latest single, ‘Crossing Borders’, is a subdued affair, featuring soothing synths and brilliant guest vocals from German vocalist and producer Fritz Kalkbrenner, who also co-wrote the song. The track incorporates soul elements, while simultaneously reminiscing over early noughties dance pop; think db Boulevard’s ‘Point of View’ with modern sensibilities and a brilliant horn section. Check out the song and accompanying video below:

The video, directed by Ryan Staake, is compiled of all original content that was captured via a remote control plane.  It captures some stunning shots utilising a fish eyed lens and some great visual effects. We’ve got an exclusive behind the scenes look at how the whole thing was created!

Booka Shade’s album, Eve, is available now.

Booka Shade play London’s Village Underground on April 25th 2014. Tickets are available here!
