Booka Shade - Movements (2006)



This classic album was reisuued a few months ago as 'The Tour Edition' featuring a DVD of their set at Pukklepop from a while back. Lovely casing aside, it seems a pretty pointless re-release. I can't bring myself to watch an hour long video of dutch people on gurns dancing like twats... although that actually does sound fairly entertaining... Anyway, this album is too good not to be had. Perfecty restrained, subtly intelligent and damn groovy. Shades of techno, minimal, house, trance and pop all collide in one euphoric, bouncy and stupidly catchy hour of quality music. You will dance.
