Night Falls Over Berlin

Booka Shade is set to release a DJ-Kicks on October 22nd, as reported by Pitchfork. The duo was phenomenal when I caught them at Virgin Festival, and I really hope to catch them again next year. I've recently been getting into their first album proper, Memento, and it's remarkable. I haven't listened to many artists that can mix moodiness, head-nodding beats and technological sophistication into such an appealing package. While too abstract to be pop, their music's definitely got an accessibility that some of their peers could learn a lesson from. Check out an interview from earlier in the year at NOW Magazine, and enjoy the songs from the album below.
