Review

Poker Flat welcomes: Simon Flower, our new man at the controls from far away, New Zealand! Because a little isolation goes a long way he was one of the small group of people instrumental in starting and keeping the techno scene in Auckland City alive and kicking, from the early 90’s through till the present day - through promoting parties, DJing, producing and releasing records. And he spared no effort - here comes: Simon Flower with „The Whisper Had It“ on Poker Flat! Beginning with dark sounds for a while, a stunning bass drum cuts off the mystic mood and takes the track right to the floor. This track comes techy and percussive, the sub bass is pushing things forward all the time, exhausting, no chance to stop moving on the floor. Increasing the tension until the end of the track, Mr. Flowers dismisses the audience, like said, exhausted, but satisfied. Redshape, releasing tracks since 2006 on specialized labels like Styrax or Delsin, is taking the track to deepness at its best. His „Discodub“ -version is hypnotic and keeps that dance!-dance!-dance! fever. Perfect track for the floor at peak time! Mark August‘s remix rounds off this record in a fantastic minimal way, slightly reduced but spiced up with strange sounds.

PFR89 in the media

De:Bug (GER): “Nach seinen beiden Platten auf Curl Curl und Moon Harbour ist der Neuseeländer jetzt auf Poker Flat gelandet und hat gleich auch mit Redshape und Mark August zwei ziemlich feine Remixer bekommen. Das Original ist ein leicht elegischer Track mit viel perlendem Acid-Funk im Untergrund und hitzigen Hi-Hats, der einem nahelegt, doch zum Sound wegzuschmelzen wie zu einer richtig alten organischen Detroit- Trance-Nummer. Der Discodub von Redshape bringt die Dub-Nuancen des Tracks heraus, und faucht damit fast schon bissig in seiner ausgelassen sanft schliddernden Stimmung. Mark August nimmt sich eher die unheimlichen Momente des Tracks und überträgt sie auf ein minimaleres Fundament, ohne ihnen dadurch die Stimmung zu rauben. Eine Platte, die man gerne mit ein paar Nächten Schlafentzug zu sich nehmen möchte. http://www.pokerflat-recordings.com bleed•••• ”
