This is my personal refix of Booka Shade‘s beautiful gem: ‘Night Falls’, taken from the ‘Movements’ album released in 2006 at Get Physical Music (Berlin). According to Resident Advisor, ‘Night Falls’ deserves more than one listen: it will intrigue you more if you know its destination. This is exactly what I had in mind when creating this refix: intensify that mysterious sense even more. Hence I’ve used samples from Larry Gold‘s ‘Night Falls Over Philly’ String Version, taken from ‘Cinematic Shades (The Slow Songs)’ album released in 2008. The subtle classical addition of Larry Gold’s uplifting string quartet takes this track to the next level. I just can’t stop listening to it. What about you?
Below you can read what Get Physical Music blogged when they released the ‘Night Falls’ EP on March 8, 2006:
While Booka Shade’s biggest release of 2005, ‘Mandarine Girl’, basked in the euphoric afterglow of early 90’s techno-trance, their latest 12″ is a somewhat darker, more nocturnal affair. Not less than it’s forerunner, ‘Night Falls’, has the potential to become a summer-hymn, awakening reminiscences of the old days, creating a more epic and filigree atmosphere. The taster single for Booka Shade’s soon to be released second album ‘Movements’ works with a spine-tingling trance riff over scuffled, hazy beats and a strong story-telling bassline.
