This month Focus On travels to Germany to present you the mixes of one of the leading record labels over the European scene. Following the closure of Raw Elements label after 3 years in circulation, the legendary producer and DJ Steve Bug founded in 1998 Poker Flat Recordings, aiming to explore and re-define the TechHouse genre in all its varieties.
The first release came from own Steve, named Double Action, including the legendary Loverboy hit, followed by a chain of singles, EPs and LPs by the likes of Trentemøller, Märtini Brös, Guido Schneider, John Tejada, Donnacha Costello and way more.
With almost 130 references on the market, Poker Flat finished the year 2011 with the release of Forward To The Past 2 – The Acid Flashback, the second release within the outstanding compilation series Forward To The Past, a new episode of the highy anticipated epic Poker Flat label compilation history produced by TJ Kong & Modular K.
And 2012 has much more to offer as the labels schedule includes artist albums by Alex Niggemann and Steve Bug himself as well as exciting single releases by Daniel Dexter, H.O.S.H. and many more. Poker Flat has made clear in recent years who will take the European electronic scene, with its exuberant present and very healthy future.
In this Focus On we will enjoy four of their artists:
- Daniel Dexter
- Tj Kong
- Alex Niggemann
- Steve Bug
