German house duo Booka Shade released a couple of maxis in 1995 and 1996 on the Touché label and no one heard anything from them until eight years later, when they released a new one on Systematic and Get Physical. It was worth the wait, and a year later came 'Mandarine EP', with the timeless hit 'Mandarine Girl', clubber anthem par excellence. Last year they came out with an album called 'Eve' on the Embassy label. Whenever they're DJing it's a guarantee of the best melodic techno around. Check them out tonight at The Loft (Razzmatazz).
