Poker Flat Recordings has been dealing out underground house music with a unique twist since 1999; from the defining debut 'Loverboy' through the Bugnology series, acclaimed albums and worldwide club hits, Steve Bug's essential imprint has unearthed new talent, developed rising stars and welcomed veterans into the fold.
Steve Bug's reputation as an exceptionally gifted DJ, producer and music connoisseur is about to carry the beloved imprint to its 15th anniversary, which will be celebrated with its finest collection of raw talent yet.
After shuttering his legendary Raw Elements-imprint (1995-1998), Steve Bug embarked on the defining label that would soon be considered as one of handful of the handful labels credited with moulding the sound of tech house and minimal house.
Poker Flat Recordings arrived with a bang - the very first release named Double Action included the massive hit 'Loverboy' - and began to grow from strength to strength, gathering fans, critical and DJ support from the very outset.
Double Action was followed by a string of quality singles and EPs by Martin Landsky, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Berkson & What and Guido Schneider, plus defining longplay albums by Trentemøller, Märtini Brös, John Tejada, TJ King & Modular K and Donnacha Costello.
The sub-labels Dessous, Audiomatique and Traffic Signs cemented the presence of the Poker Flat familia, and further refined the signature sounds of Vincenzo, Adultnapper, Phonique, and Steve's own alter ego Traffic Signs.
Fifteen years deep, and Poker Flat Recordings is still on top of its game. In celebration of this milestone, Steve Bug & co. plan to mark it in style, with a 15 Years Of Poker Flat digital compilation of 16 new exclusive, unreleased tracks and remixes by Josh Wink, Taylor, DJ Tennis & Mind Against, youANDme, Mark Henning, John Tejada, Joeski, Audiofly, Ejeca, Sebo K, Anaxander, Kindimmer, The Organ Grinder, Tom Flynn and more, taken from the Four Jacks series of EPs. Poker Flat's unwavering dedication to the finest underground house music is 15 years young, with absolutely no sign of slowing down.
