Virtual Mood by Dario D'Attis & Reto Ardour
Poker Flat Recordings has rarely put a foot wrong in the past 16 years, and one of their undisputed strengths is the wide range of artists they have managed to bring together under one label. This time it’s the turn of Swiss duo Dario D’Attis & Reto Ardour - collaborating on a blistering three tracker.
Both Dario and Reto have been central to the scene in their native Switzerland for many years, representing quality house music via countless releases, remixes and DJ residences. Their first outing on Poker Flat shows why.
Virtual Mood gives a good indication of their combined talent - highly polished tech-house that builds and builds into a pressure cooker of a track - sure to cause mayhem on clued-up dance floors.
Shape is similarly rounded in its production values, but opts for a deeper, dubbier vibe that evolves into a techy, emotive monster.
Drop It is a tracky, narcotic jam, deeply loopy and yet with enough space and movement to keep ears and feet locked in.
