On its' initial 2006 release, Booka Shade's sophomore album, Movements, really captured the zeitgeist. Arguably the first great album of the post-minimal tech-house era, it mixed their usual hypnotic, undulating dancefloor tracks with more considered, IDM-influenced material. Ten years on, they've decided to reissue it, bundling the original album with a new disc of remixes. These remixes are uniformly excellent, from the intense creepiness of Nils Frahm's soundtrack style revision of "Night Falls", and Dennis Ferrer's deliciously percussive version of "Lost High", the feverish Afro-techno humidity of Andhim's rework of "Lost High", and Eats Everything's throbbing, big room interpretation of "Mandarine Girl" [sic].
