Storm by Daniel Dexter

Berlin based Daniel Dexter is part of the new breed of producers showing us why there‘s still mileage in the good old house groove. His cultu- red, expressive productions have the mark of a true talent and Mr. Dexter has only just begun...!

The acid-revival lives on - `Storm‘ is a heavy, late night tale of sax, e-piano and stomping synth basslines. Growing from a filtered intro, its song like structure drives us into true reckless abandon - perfect for the darker moments of the night, but still oozy with funk and soul.
The thick, percussive opening bars of `There Will Be Jazz‘ lead to a focus on one of Dexter‘s cho- sen weapons - more jazzy saxophone samples and synthesized strings lift us into a musical cre- scendo of tension, yet there‘s a laid back, New York vibe to the track, which will no doubt get plenty of plays this summer.

The mysterious `Murder‘ is a darker affair, shrouded in rave-era stabs and a real pushing vibe. Its clear that Daniel is a dextrous (no pun intended) producer with plenty of tricks up his sleeve... This is confirmed with digital bonus track ‚Sirens‘, a fully-fledged electronic voyage full of melodic strings, blossoming, Detroit-inspired builds and playful programming.

 Scheduled for early May on Poker Flat Recordings is the release of Daniel Dexters new three track EP named "Storm" which introduces a new feel to the labels sound, combining original sax lines with a pumping TechHouse drive and - this goes especially for the title track "Storm" and the B2-feature "Murder" - a certain, ever building dark'ish intensity that, not only due to clonky bass lines, ravey hooks and oldskool claps in the right place, transforms clubs into raves and sets primetime floors on fire. Soundwise not your average Poker Flat-release and defo not the one you'd necessarily expect on Steve Bugs very own imprint, one that might not appeal to all fans and followers in the first place but one that is a long time grower for sure and easily can stand the test of time. Also keep your ears open for the nicely irritating and very subliminal use of field recordings in "There Will Be Jazz" that once again prove Mr. Dexters excellent studio and dancefloor abilities. Quality.
