Sounds: Booka Shade: DJ-Kicks (!K7)

Text Alif Omar
Bringing on their trademark tech-house sound, German veterans Booka Shade finally get a shot at the DJ-Kicks series. The unexpected mix of obscure material that ranges from dance classics such as Yazoo’s ‘Situation’ to John Carpenter’s movie score reflects the pair’s crate digging talents. It’s not all 80s leftovers though; The Streets makes an appearance, as so do their own original tracks. The result is a winning concoction of the old mated with the new.
