Lately by Alex Niggemann
Popping up on labels like 8Bit, Supernature and Tsuba, releasing quality tech-house and club-assured cuts since 2008, we're delighted to welcome German producer Alex Niggemann to Poker Flat. This new EP raises Niggemann's game with three tracks taking in heavy acid bass, chicago-house vibes and inventive, smooth flowing arrangements.
'Lately' is a real stomper in the classic Poker Flat tradition. Haunting, acidic, modern, club guaranteed! Niggemann twists a spooky and funky synth line around a heavy old-school house vibe, complete with a thoughtful smokey-voiced naration.
'Madness' lifts the tension higher with a sub-heavy chigaco bass attack, 2011 style. Alex has fused the best of both old and new and found a new sound that leaves behind rigid sound in favour of more funky, warmer and totally fresh vibes!
The EP concludes with 'Smash Your Face', a groovy houser that rolls wonderfully with more growling square wave bass and plenty of details to keep the flow nothing short of riveting!
