Tracklisting LP 2x12“ A1: Jeff Samuel: Relapse * A2: Cle: All Dried Out * B1: Steve Bug: Momwack * B2: Dan Berkson & James What: Indigo * C1: Ryo Murakami: Nightmare * C2: D’julz: Here & Now * D1: Guido Schneider & Florian Schirmacher: Organic * * = exclusively produced for this album The start of a new year marks the arrival of the sixth dedicated compilation from the world-renowned Poker Flat imprint. Just like the notorious ‘Dead Man’s Hand’ in a high stakes all-nighter, this double CD release is full of carefully judged mind games and more than a few winning surprises! Dead Man’s Hand follows strong Poker Flat CD releases like Trentemøller (The Last Resort - PFRCD18) and “Bets’n’Bluffs” (PFRCD19). The first half of the compilation is dealt out in traditional style by none other than label figurehead and internationally revered DJ and Producer Steve Bug. Bug’s success behind the decks somewhat mirrors the success of Poker Flat’s inimitable sound, and his ‘Compiled by…’, unmixed CD shows off exactly that! CD 2 contains a fantastic mix presented by key label name and one half of the critically acclaimed Märtini Brös, Clé. The German DJ and Producer, who also collaborates with Steve Bug, has chosen 13 more Poker Flat past and future classics for the ‘Dead Man’s Hand’ Mix. ‘Dead Man’s Hand’ sums up perfectly the ethos of the label, that is, to produce genre defining electronic music, that works perfectly whether inside the head or on the dancefloor. If the selection, depth and field of music available here says one thing about this label of labels, it is that its Here to Stay, and its not about to start doing things quietly! Here’s to Poker Flat in 2008 and beyond…..

PFRLP20 in the media

BPM MAG (USA): “From the gambling den of Steve Bug’s concept lab, comes this year’s double CD compilation hand picked from the label’s best dealers. The first disc in the compilation is tracked and selected from Bug himself, displaying their new step towards the deeper side of techno and house. Delivering a bit of disco glam with Bug and Cle’s “Behind The Curtains”, live bass cuts and clever hits sooth the anxious ladies. Sebo K remixes Martin Landsky’s “Let Me Dance”, into a quirky down right thumpin’ groove that only this Mobilee master can create. Disc two contains a mix from Cle (one half of the Martini Bros), compiling 13 future and past Poker Flat tracks into a seamless impression of late night splendor.”

Dj Koze (International Pony): “A2 UND C1 SIND MEINE Favoriten!”
