Chris Malinchak remixes 'Pray'.

"Hi, today it's all about dreamy melodies and sparkling synths thanks to the first remix of our 2021 opener 'Pray'.

We first met Brooklyn born, New Jersey-based DJ and producer Chris Malinchak at our show at Trocadero in Philadelphia in March of 2013. He shot to international acclaim with his hit single 'So Good To Me' which we heard (and loved) that night, with the years following welcoming material via the likes of French Express and Ultra, plus the launch of his weekly radio show on Sirius XM Chill. Hope you enjoy his Remix for us. All the best, Walter & Arno"**

Caverna Magic out today.

CAVERNA MAGICA Welcome to our brand new single, ‘Caverna Magica’ – a blissful and wandering cut journeying through tranquil and serene soundscapes... The sound of Booka Shade always combined dance floor club sounds with the ability to enjoy the music at home. So until we can dance together again here’s the soundtrack for your headphone journey to your own private magic cave.

During the long months of winter lockdown we spent time exploring soundscapes with the mixture of acoustic and electronic sounds. Here live-played acoustic percussion (sticks on the rim of a drum) groove alongside wide open distorted synth pads.

The officially unreleased 'Demo Version' of Caverna Magica is an extra we'll offer only in our web shop. We decided it might be fun to share different versions of a song or make track bundles that are exclusive there. Listen/buy: image description

'Perpetual Light' featuring Polly Scattergood.

Critically acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Polly Scattergood has joined us for our first collaboration of the new year. Polly was introduced to us by a mutual friend. We liked her release on Mute Records back in the day, and also the song she did with Chris Liebing on his recent album.

We had a backing track that was less "clubby" and more indie and atmospheric, which we thought might fit her voice nicely, and Polly came up with these thrilling vocal lines! "Like an Angel in the Darkness…"

We very much enjoy working with artists all around the globe, although we can’t be together in the studio. Once the communication is clear and we feel each others' vibe, it’s a wonderful journey, far away from dull reality! A&W

Pray - Booka Shade first sounds for 2021.

Premiering New Years Day on BBC Radio 1, 'Pray' is the band's first release for 2021. "It's very hopeful, we think, both the vocals and the song in general. We have faith in a positive future, and hopes for the new year. 'Forest of Etta' is something more ethereal, a mysterious walk through a fantasy forest. Welcome to 2021, friends". A&W.
