Long before Booka Shade became one of the most successful international dance music acts of the last 10 years, Arno Kammermeier & Walter Merziger formed a new wave pop band in the early 90s, signed a record deal in 1992 and released 2 albums under the name Planet Claire. GALVANY STREET marks the return to their pop roots in collaboration with former Archive singer Craig Walker and a few additional guests like Urdur (GusGus), Australian Yates and Daniel Spencer from London. "As a singer it's a real pleasure to work with Booka Shade as the music they presented to me was so rich and full of melody. The rhythms and melody are always top level and make the job of writing toplines and lyrics a very enjoyable one. I really love the combination of all our influences - 80's synth pop, 90's Manchester and right up to more current stuff like The Weeknd - it's all in there and it makes for a very interesting sound." (Craig Walker) Mark Plati, known for his production and mixing with David Bowie, The Cure, Prince and many others worked on "Digging A Hole", "Eyes Open" and "All Falls Down". Fritz Hilpert, mix engineer and electronic musician, a friend of Booka Shade, got involved with the final mix for "All Falls Down".
