    In Brief:
    What do you do when a couple of the most iconic Australian dance songs of all time are lingering in your back catalogue? Well you get some of Australia's hottest producers to remix them!!! We did it a few years ago on Madison Avenue's iconic ‘Don't Call Me Baby’ which saw Motez, Andy Van, Just a Gent & Filterkat remixes hit dance floors and club charts globally, including a Beatport #3.  Now we're letting the new kids on the block loose on: ‘Who The Hell Are You,’ Madison Avenue's huge follow up and Number 1 Pop Chart hit from 2000.  Kicking off the HUGE remix pack is original Madison Avenue producer Andy Van who shows he has lost none of his deft ear for a wicked groove, with his disco house inspired 2017 remix.  Dynamite house producer Dom Dolla delivers his fresh vibes, bringing a slick bass driven remix to the package, with both full vocal and dub mixes.  Then Baytek joins in with a cranking, baseline driven re-work, again both in Vocal and Dub forms.  Dr Packer, no stranger to the disco re-edit, takes it down the throw back, everything old is new again, rework vibe.  Modern Citizens bring a deep chilled feel, with the original full vocal, clean drums and moody key pads.  And last but by no means least, Melbourne beats don illstrtd brings his future R&B style and turns the original vocal on it's head with a completely fresh slowed down funky vibe! All up a cracking set of remixes which will put this classic back onto dance floors around the world.

      There's nothing simple about Dashiki's colourful new effort "Forget You"

      Dashiki is an unusual artistic movement that mixes a blend European and African cultures with music, visuals and people. After the success of their first single, Forget You, Dashiki has released an equally vibrant visual accompaniment. 
      Dashiki is the anagram of the three members in the collective… David, Shif and Kimbo. Aptly, Dashiki also refers to a traditional type African dress. Staying true to their roots, this mixture of African and European cultures is at the core of this project. 
      Dashiki is a collective where singers, dancers, designers and video makers, of both European and African origins, collaborate with the DJ producer who masterminded the whole idea. Their energy has been well directed to create Forget You, in 2017, and now their equally exhilarating video.
      Brought to life by the Dashiki movement, this video is an uplifting exploration that doesn’t shy away from a very relatable situation. Sewn together by three creative forces, the video is underpinned heavily by each of their skills, backgrounds and individual stories. This track has an eclectic and erratic slant, but in some way, has the sense of utter certainty that youth holds. Deleting his ex-girl in a video game like twist, no one can’t decide whether this is a good or bad move. Passionate and powerful, this loudly asks us whether forgetting is better than heartbreak? Either way, we can’t wait for more celebrations of life from the skilled musicians that have brought us Dashiki.

      French producer Mathieu Koss has been carving a solid name for himself for a few years now. Having seen support early in his career from Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix, it’s easy to see why his new single is tinged with some guilt-free summer spiced optimism. The Best Is Yet To Come is Mathieu’s new effort is another great example of his persistent pop house blend.
      Mathieu’s first release, Need Your Lovin, saw immediate global reach. Followed quickly by a deep house version of NJR’s classic I Need Your Love which gained massive DJ interest, later resulting in over 2 million streams. Mathieu is most known so far however for Big Jet Plane alongside fellow DJ, Alok. The soon to be infamous remake of Angus and Julia stones slur of a folk song was a huge world-wide success. Mathieu worked epic levels of euphoria into the track, that was equally met with exhilarating force of music genius.

      Having always been a keen traveller, Mathieu is keen to use emotions conjured up by foreign voyages deep within his work. After being inspired by the uplifting attitude of some newly found Australian friends –Best Is Yet To Come was born. 
      This single was shaped specifically for Joan Alasta’s vocals, who might be recognised from her appearance in Big Jet Plane. Riding high in the mix, Joan plays her part proud.  always keen to draw from multiple influences, Joan refers frequently to the likes of Radiohead and more obscure and traditional Corsican songs. Joan’s constant search for diversity is magnified by Mathieu – both driving us forward with grace and the sheer force of positive thinking.
      Mathieu Koss – Best Is Yet To Come is available April 6th!

      Rave Radio are back with their new single, Morning Light - a summer House anthem, featuring vocals from MANBN. The Australian DJ duo combine live performance elements with high-octane EDM sets. They are kings of the viral Facebook video, raking in 19 million plays with their top Facebook video, and they’re now establishing themselves as fully fledged artists.
      Rave Radio’s previous single Carry You is on MTV’s daily rotation and peaked at #6 on the Aria Club Chart. Prior to that success, their single Turn Me Out racked up over 3.5m plays on Spotify. It’s clear these guys aren’t messing around! As we look to the future, Rave Radio will continue to dominate stages with the delivery of their incredible live experiences.  Meanwhile, fresh material will build momentum on the key streaming platforms and radio-waves – the future is looking bright!
      Rave Radio layer MANBN’s glorious top line over luscious guitar picking, as the tight percussion builds into a euphoric chorus of funky bass, vocal chops and groovy drums. Morning Light channels the warmth of an uplifting, pacific sunrise. It successfully cements Rave Radio’s position at the fore-front of popular dance music, and does so with pristine execution – the final product is a gem soaked in irresistible flare!

    • GALLEON
      By GALLEON
      In the lead up to their Australian tour and the release of their new album, Cut The Strings, Ozclubbers' @GALLEON chats with Booka Shade about their music, the album, and just life in general!

      We warmly welcome you both Arno & Walter back to Australia for your run of dates in March. You have frequented our shores regularly in the last 10 years. What is it that keeps bringing you back down under?
      Ever since we first came in 2007, we have found an enthusiastic and loyal fanbase who not only cherishes the classic tracks, but also embraces more recent songs such as LOVE INC .
      We played some of the biggest festivals such as big day out, future fest etc, but also enjoy the headline club shows, like Melbourne last weekend and the ones coming up in Brisbane, Auckland and Adelaide (during fringe festival) .
      As the new album is only coming out in a couple of weeks, we play a lot of unreleased album songs in Australia, and it´s great to see the reaction of the crowd.
      Your previous live shows have never disappointed and always left the listener wanting more. Can you let us in on a few secrets as to what we might experience this time around?
      I guess it´s not really a secret when I say that we simply LOVE performing on a stage. that´s what we are really good at (together with producing music I hope) .
      And on this tour, also because the sound of the album is more ´back to the club´, our setup is very condensed , we have all channels for synthesizers, effects, drums under control on stage, we can react quickly and can interact more spontaneously , which gives the set great energy .
       
      With your last album Galvany Street, you took a different approach to your previous albums, which included the use of more hardware and  featured various collaborations. Does Cut The Strings have any similarities to Galvany Street or have you gone back to a predominantly club approach?
      After our 2013 album EVE we had the feeling that we had said everything in terms of bass lines and riffs. we had the feeling we would only repeat ourselves if we continued in our ´usual´ way, and as artists, we definitely always want to progress, evolve, not repeat.
      Which sounds risky, because we have a career we could perhaps simply continue for years and years.
      But that would be too easy …. :-)
      So on GALVANY STREET, we made an unusual step and produced an album outside of the techno box, no techno 4/4 beats , no ´booka synth riffs´ , a lot of vocals, even pop song writing.
      Most of the vocal tracks are together with Craig Walker, former member of the UK band ARCHIVE. btw he´s got a new project coming up called THEM THERE.
      We also collaborated with Fritz Hilpert from KRAFTWERK on a Dolby atmos mix of the entire album which was released as Blu-ray disc and is part of the Box Set we released.
      We needed this time out to recharge our club batteries and indeed, we found new inspiration for club music !
      And now, with this new enthusiasm for the club, comes CUT THE STRINGS .
      After the galvany street the only guideline we had was that we wanna go back to more clubbier music and that we don‘t wanna work so crazy long on tracks as we did in the past.it should be more spontaneous and open minded.
       
      You have worked with Troels Abrahamsen (vocalist on Kolsch 'All That Matters') on your latest single and title track, Cut The Strings. How did you get to know Troels?
      We actually contacted him years ago, shortly after ´all that matters´, and recorded a first version of what would later become CUT THE STRINGS.
      But then the GALVANY STREET project came in between and we put the song aside for a while, and picked up work in the autumn of last year.
      One of the novelties of the album CUT THE STRINGS is that we worked much more spontaneous and finished the production process quicker.
      On previous albums we easily worked for 2, even 3 years on an album. Again, that´s something we wanted to change in 2018.
       
      With your latest live show, do you individually have specific functions within the show or do you collaborate on all aspects?
      The work spaces are clearly defined since we first started: Walter plays keyboards, vocoder, sequences, Arno plays the drums and whenever we play longer sets, he does a DJ part in the middle of the set.
       
      When writing Cut The Strings, did you find any tried and tested production techniques useful?
      We used some instruments that we didn‘t use for a long time ,  for example an old EMS vocoder which we bought from Ian Stanley a former member of the 80‘s group tears for fears.
      You can hear it on tyrell and of course EMS love.this little box has a very special sound.
       
      How much do you find your methods of producing music evolve with the vast amount of software and plugins available?
      Even if it is so easy nowadays to do a good sound with all the plug inns which are out there ,we‘re always looking for new sounds with a character which can help to improve the trademark sound of Booka Shade.
      Not easy but it‘s worth it.
      It‘s all about challenging yourself and not be stuck in a formula.
       
      How do you both remain resilient and at the top of your game while touring given the long hours and continual amount of work needing to be done to make your performances so memorable?
      We have a pretty good time management, considering we both have families and a lot of obligations aside of music. also, we live a rather healthy lifestyle lately, and it´s incredible how much you can get done in a day and how much more energy you can have even with little sleep.
       
      Looking into your back catalogue, you both have an extensive history as producers under various aliases and in several groups stretching back to the better part of 30 years. Would you ever consider reviving any of the older projects you both worked on together (for example Superstring)?
      Ha ha, you´re digging deep …… well not everything was gold , but having said that, most of the rights from the 90´s should have long fallen back to us, so you never know…. go listen to old demos and releases every now and then and then look for sounds and sequences on old hard drives. you can imagine, there are dozens of old computers and hard drives ...
       
      In the last few years you have set up Blaufield Music. Tell us a little about your label and its functions.
      We had founded the label Get Physical together with our friends M.A.N.D.Y. , DJ T. and Peter Hayo in the early 2000´s and left in 2008, so we needed a new outlet for our music. and every now and then we release songs from friends of ours, for example fellow berliner CHI THANH, who has produced a magnificent remix for Body Language btw).
      Could be that after the summer we´ll release a project of friends of ours from Melbourne.
       
      Within the music industry, you as individuals and collectively as Booka Shade are known for having a great reputation and being highly professional while always remaining humble. Are these qualities you would recommend any DJ, producer or musician should withhold in order to maintain longevity in the scene?
      Absolutely. most people who have been successful over a longer period of time (not just two summers) are very professional, work hard and stay grounded.
       
      Who would you say has inspired you the most musically over the last 30 years?
      Depeche mode, The Cure, New Order, Sven Vath
       
      Do you have any tips as to who is about to blow up in the next couple of years?
      ARTBAT from Ukraine are having a good run atm, look out for them.
       
      Finally, feel free to tell us a fun fact that we wouldn't know about Booka Shade.
      We love gardening in our free time.
