M.A.N.D.Y. vs Booka Shade - ‘Body Language’ - Make the bass and keys in DRC

Published on  

Arguably the record which single handedly brought mass attention to the record label ‘Get Physical’, M.A.N.D.Y. vs Booka Shade - ‘Body Language’ was a summer sensation back in 2005, and was even crowned ‘Ibiza Song of the Season’ at the 20th annual DJ Awards that year. In fact it turned out to be a very good year indeed for Get Physical, becoming the best selling label across all genres on Beatport at the time; a worthy winner of DJ Magazine’s ‘Label Of The Year’ award.

Founded just 3 years earlier as a joint venture between Patrick Bodmer & Philipp Jung (M.A.N.D.Y.), Walter Merziger, Arno Kammermeier & Peter Hayo (Booka Shade) and Thomas Koch (DJ T) with the powerhouse of modern electronic music Berlin as their base.

Body Language received a couple of post-release remixes, and in 2007 was sampled by Will.I.Am for ‘Get Your Money’ - it was actually released as a single, but it’s hardly the most memorable reworking of the instrumental into a vocal, that prize goes to Jax Jones - You Don't Know Me ft. RAYE from 2016. Infinitely more catchy, it was well received and saw chart success across many parts of europe, making it inside the top 5 in several countries.
