Thomas Koch - better known under his DJ T. moniker - is finally back on Poker Flat Recordings with his double-A side 12" "After Dark / Before Light" which is cat.no. 099 of this well respected and highly appreciated imprint. Joining production forces with Ian Pooley - a musical force within the German and international scene as DJ T. himself - he serves two hypnotic, ever evolving peaktime cuts that refer to the more experimental side that was to be found within the Techno / TechHouse movement in the mid- and late-90s, a time that seems to be gone for ages nowadays, but still manage to keep their sound fresh and on cutting edge standards. There's jack, there's rave, there's claps, there's some tribalistic percussion and there's thrill - guess this mixture makes this one so exciting and one to stick in my box for ages.
