Well, it's pretty hard to believe that Poker Flat Recordings is like 10 years in business yet as time flies by pretty fast, especially in club culture, but looking back it seems like the time span from 1999 to 2009 makes up to ten years so it must be true anyway. To celebrate this special anniversary Poker Flat comes up with a collectors CD box, a limited and hand numbered edition of 2000 pieces, that includes three discs plus a specifically designed poker deck and a set of cards as well while the regular will only contain a 2-CD pack. Whatever, we're talking music not features here so we'll see CD1 jam packed with exclusive tracks by usual suspects as Steve Bug himself, Märtini Brös., Patrick Chardronnet as well as some new faces or collabos as we e.g. see Adultnapper and Mr C (yes, of The Shamen and The End fame) working together as Sycopant SLags and delivering a deep athmospheric masterpiece named "Telling". CD2 delivers a retrospective view on Poker Flat's latest output featuring recent releases from the past year as Phonique's massive "House Of God" remix , Donnacha Costelllo's massive "Hello, I Must Be Going" or DJ T.'s techy "After Dark" whilst CD3 - the bonus - serves classics as Hakan Lidbo's "Kiki De Montparnasse", Jackmate's "Recall" or Steve Bug's "A Night Like This" amongst others that cannot be missed by any lover of the typical Poker Flat-sound.
