Shaping Elements - Poker Flat Volume 8 by Various Artists
Poker Flat pull in the reigns once again with the 8th installment of their legendary compliation series. To celebrate, a double pack vinyl release accompanies the CD which also features a stunning mix by Jay Tripwire.
Being the boss it’s only fair he kicks things off as Steve Bug's 'A Shot In The Dark' begins the fun on A1. Of course its a high-class trippy affair full of classic Bug shenanigans. Awesome synth hooks and captivating drums spiral almost out of control! Making his mark on the DJ mix Jay Tripwire also contributes a very special new track featuring the wonderful vocals of Katherine Larr. 'Find Me' stands out as a further reminder of the producers edge in the modern house scene. Irish legend Donnacha Costello contributes 'Hey, Dummy', a great follow up to his recent album on Poker Flat: 'Before We Say Goodbye'. This solid track is founded in Donnacha's deep acidic traditions and injects some subtle touches of melody into the mix. Patrick Chardronnet's dramatic and summery 'Birds On Strings' raising the tension. Well known for his tense, timely arrangements he hands in a future classic that has had us all in raptures. Tried and tested! French scenester D'Julz just refuses to back down and so we hear in 'Get Down'; its a hot natured party track with a great timeless house atmosphere packed in to a fresh and modern party killer! Finally dutch Techno-boy Benny Rodrigues provides the ominous 'G'. A great, classic sounding cut that ties together the worlds of Amsterdam's rich Techno scene with the trippier, deeper sound of Berlin.
