Poker Flat return with their ninth label compilation, uniting some of the brightest talents
from their label roster, and also inviting some new names to join their mischievous posse.
Well take you on a whistlestop tour deep into the Wild West of modern house and
techno, with producers like Adultnapper, James What, Alland Byallo, Roland Appel, Steve
Bug & Clé, Nick Harris, Sebastien San, Ribn, Ian Pooley, Alex Niggemann, Alex Flattner &
LOPAZZ and many more besides!
Released on Double Cd, Double Vinyl and Digital formats, with over 20 tracks to choose
from, 10 exclusive new productions, and a mix from the Poker Flat Sherrif himself Steve
Bug, theres more than enough quality to choose from.
CD1 is home to 10 unmixed, fresh tracks including exclusives from newcomers Tom
Taylor & Gareth Whitehead with the bassline-odyssey of Tired Of Being Wrong - stirring
up the heady classic vibes, and Alland Byallos One Of The Ones pushing into rolling peak
Two more exclusives are featured on Disc 1, with NRK label boss Nick Harris contributing
Her Black Wings, a moody synth led house trip, while acclaimed producer Sebastien San
offers up the string-led anthem Bliss. On top of that we find sure fire numbers from the
recent PFR catalog, like Adultnappers Idiot Fair remixed by H.O.S.H, Lee Curtiss funktastic
remix of James Whats It Feels Wrong, or Roland Appels wonderful Fleurs Du
Mal. Its a strong selection from some of the finest gunslingers in the business!
The Bug then takes us on a real trek across scenic landscapes and rocky terrain as he
mixes together 16 tracks including a further 6 new exclusives. Aeromaschine heads off
the journey with Zeit - a tracky, percussive jam that fits perfectly with Steve Bugs DJ
style. Newcomers DJ F.E.X & Ron Costa then have their first chance to shine with the
heavy Acid Shaking, before London don Stuart Geddes Johns Nu Disco takes things
subterranean and into more late night zones.
Essens badboys Ribn drop their new weapon in the shape of Siam, a bass rolling dubentwined
masterpiece, which is followed closely by veteran proudcer Ian Pooleys techy
Indigo - a reminder of his studio skills! In contrast young blood Nico Lahs does very well
with Peace Of Mine, a carefully executed cut of heavy soulful funk.
The mix continues to elevate with a stampede of class acts, like Alex Flattner & LOPAZZ
with the ingenious Its, or Allessio Mereus 2 Points After You. Steve Bug holds the reins
as the mix charges ahead into the burning morning sun, concluding with a showdown
between Alland Byalldo (Shipwrecked) and Alex Niggemanns Madness - a deadly dual indeed.
