German duo Booka Shade have long been purveyors of emotive, melodic, and refined material in many forms, their last long-player "Galvany Street" saw them explore new challenges outside of their comfort zone and work with a number of singers and producers outside of the club world, such as Fritz Hilpert and a former producer for David Bowie.

Herewith a fresh perspective and inspiration the duo return to the essence of their sound with "Cut The Strings", showcasing the refined production style, layered soundscapes, and dance floor-focused rhythms that they’ve become loved for over the years.

Across the project the duo deliver an amalgamation of sounds from peak-time club workouts such as the breaksy "Tyrell" and "And You?", the menacing bass tones of "Black Crystal" and hypnotic melodies of "Lost feat. Daniel Spencer" and "Aftermath feat. Giorgia Angiuli" through to more home listening cuts like the Balearic tinged "Confessions", the arpeggio fuelled opener "Easy Drifter" and IDM touches of "EMS Love".

Once again with "Cut The Strings" Booka Shade has proven themselves as artists continually looking to evolve and push their sound forward with their deft production techniques and unique approach.
