Poker Flat labelhead Steve Bug returns with a new 12″, “Wet’n'Dry". “Wet” on the A-side kicks off with a punchy kick’n’shakers and a dark chord which sneaks up from behind and slowly makes your feet move, before the irresistably groovy bassline comes in and paves the way for a slow rising climax. Very nice fresh’n'funky synths take the lead after the break. “Dry” on the flip spreads a darker atmosphere with straight up textured cuts and acid reduced elements. Synth stabs, a dry bassline and a manic melody sequence characterise the track and start to erupt after the middlepart and tighten the tension.

PFR80 in the media

Chloe: “B1-DRY. This is the kind of track with this weird atmosphere only Steve bug can do. It reminds me "loverboy"... a bomb track.”

Chris Duckenfield: “Another strong one from Herr Bug....liking both sides ”

Dixon (Innervisions): “gefällt mir. ”

DJ MAG (UK) Giles Smith: “For the labels 80th release label owner Steve Bug steps up with his "Wet n Dry" EP. "Wet" by far the stronger track is not unlike his last release "Smackman'. Focussing very much on hard hitting drum programming, a dominant synth line that twists and turns and a cool old school bassline this is carried out in his usual slick effortless style. "Dry", a gnarly, darker groove with a morphing acid bassline and bleeps over a simple groove is not bad but really lacks that special something we have come to expect from Bug from with tracks like "Bug in Yer Brain" or "Loverboy".”

Groove Magazin (GER): “...zwei gelungene Nummern!”

James Flavour: “a1 is great! already in rotation....”

Jeff Benett (Treibstoff/Kung F: “"Another wicked releases from the big boss. Beautiful symbiosis between melodies and minimalism. Full support for the "Wet" charted and used in radio play, and on the road of course." ”

John Tejada (Palette): “i liked both tracks and played them both. should be a good one. ”

Jussi-Pekka(Audiomatique/Desso: “ ""dry"" is a cool one as a dj tool or when you need to slowly build up the feeling... nice groove in it! will play defo!! :) " ”

Karotte: ““dabei werden die boys ganz nass und ich ich darf sie dann wieder trocknen! mach ich doch gern:-) tolles release vom cheffe bug. mag die A ein bisserl mehr als die B.” ”

Laurent Garnier: “"lovely as always full support ”

Martin Landsky (Poker Flat): “gewohnt gute platte vom bug..mein fav ist dry, für mich ein perfektes follow up zu der future retro101, die ich nach wie vor liebe...wet ist aber keineswegs weniger cool...steve goes epos..=))) ”

Oxia (Kompakt): “"I really like both tracks, really good, I play it and I put on my chart. ”
