Poker Flat present London Warehouse Party this Feb

On Saturday 25th February 2012 a very special Poker Flat showcase is to happen in London for the very first time. Featuring a carefully curated selection of label associates old and new, and set in a secret London warehouse space (although we wonder if there are really any secret spaces left?) this looks set to be a complete roadblock. Joining label boss Steve Bug, will be Ovum chief Josh Wink and 2011 star M A N I K, as well as Martin Landsky, Daniel Dexter and Burnski, plus more to be confirmed.

Poker Flat (as if it needs an introduction) is a deep house and tech label run by DJ, producer and A&R maestro Steve Bug since 1999. Amongst its illustrious back catalogue are genre defining hits like ‘Loverboy’ and ‘1000 Miles’, compilations by the likes of Argy and Märtini Brös, full lengths from the boss himself plus cuts from the likes of Trentemoller and Donnacha Costello, as well as the usual string of excellent 12” and EP releases from established names and new young blood alike. The label is a pillar of the modern scene and so a showcase such as this in the English capital is long overdue…

Josh Wink, boss of Ovum Records,tops the bill behind Steve Bug and needs little hype given his countless acid, techno and house hits over the past few decades. Joining them is M A N I K. This NYC virtuoso has a great musicality running through his sultry house and snaking tech releases on Poker Flat, Hot Creations and of course Ovum (for whom he also released a full length this year) whilst one of Bug’s oldest partners in crime, Martin Landsky – known for his production finesse – also gets in on the action.

Another fast rising talent is Chicago house and Detroit techno derived producer, DJ and label boss Daniel Dexter, and Berlin based Brit Burnski who has a long association with Poker Flat thanks to his deep and tidy productions for the label in recent years. The show also ties in with release of the label’s latest double compilation album ‘Poker Flat Volume 9 – Gunslingers and Greenhorns’, which is due for release on Monday February 20th.
