Roland Appel is the well loved and respected Producer and DJ, based in Southern Germany. Quickly recognised for his work for Sonar Kollektiv or Compost, we are proud to announce his debut for Poker Flat Recordings. The beautifully original and stand-out ‘Fleurs Du Mal’ is a classically themed masterpiece in the making. Warm, phasing synth energies build before introducing cosmic choirs and bell melodies that blurs the boundaries between mysterious cult soundtrack and club bomb! The deep searchin’ ‘Black Leather’ shows yet more techno promise with a brooding, textural synth at the centre of a full-on exploration into dark, tactile and satisfyingly underground territories. A true slow-burner, and a post tech-house killer in its own right, this detailed and accomplished cut forms the ideal futuristic backdrop to take us into 2011! Tracklisting: A. Fleurs Du Mal B. Black Leather

Eric Cloutier (Bunker NYC)

"black leather" is a dark, brooding track that builds perfectly over its six-and-a-half minutes. sharp chord stabs and a sinister bassline make for a magical package every time.

Two very good atmospheric cuts that combine a range of textures. 4/5
