Product Description

BBC Review

The second album from founders of the German Get Physical label, is both lighter and more expansive than their groundbreaking debut, Memento.

Movements aims to bring together the expert tinkering that underlies their production style with grooves that only the most dedicated dancefloor aficionados are capable of cooking up.

Anchored by a reworked version of their 2005 smash "Mandarine Girl", the album erases the genre boundaries between electro, house, techno, glitch, disco and experimental pop as it traverses the highbrow and low-end regions that exist between the Metro Area-ish opener "Night Falls" to "Lost High", the highly cinematic finale.

Mementos darkness has been replaced with a more buoyant mood, as though the producers threw open the windows in their basement, allowing chinks of morning light to penetrate their mercurial basslines and shimmering structures. Nowhere is this more evident than on the massive "Body Language".

Movements is an apt title for an album that is not only refreshingly restless, but manages to steer electronic music away from the mundane whilst retaining connections to its most basic and essential elements.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Suprise 22 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album on a Complete whim, the only reason I even knew of booka shade's existance being because of a remix - M.A.N.D.Y vs Booka Shade,(I'm sure you have all heard it).

From the moment you press play you become subject to the most beutiful and clever electronic music out there, Booka Shade's real genius has to be the subtly of the drops which shows its prescence at the begining of the first song "Night Falls"

I would recommend this Album to anyone who wants to really appreciate their dance music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius electro / dance / minimal tech 23 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. It has to be listened to on a decent hi-fi or a good set of headphones. Night Falls, Darko, Mandarine Girl and Hallelujah USA are all high points.

The tune Darko is deceptively simple but builds in such a perfect way that it makes your head want to implode.

A must have album

5.0 out of 5 stars very good electronic music 9 Jun 2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Spare, but still fun 21 Jun 2010
By Adam T - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I picked this album up based on the strength of Resident Advisor's top picks for the first decade of the 2000's. I'm quite pleased with it. It has a kind of spare sound, toward minimal, but with enough flourish in it to keep it progressing and enjoyable. The album has a lighthearted sound that minimal can sometimes trade for plodding repetition. Thumbs up.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Record. 19 May 2013

This is a classic house album. Some of these tracks just lit up the dance floor back in 2006-2007, I mean you could not go to any proper house club and not hear 'White Rooms' or 'Mandarin Girl'. This is an electronic record that still manages to be full of emotion and feeling. Great record all around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review 25 Dec 2007
By Headphone Commute - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This funky and breaky tech house album with a touch of electro got me bopping up my head up and down and occasionally reaching over to rate every other track at four and five stars on my iPod. Overall the album from a Frankfurt duo is simply fun to listen to with its upbeat riffs and simple synth chords. A no-thrills production sometimes underplays the delivered message, yet takes you on a clean ride, which is rarely desired but very often required to clear ones head. Don't forget to check out their 2007 release, Dj Kicks.
