Poker Flat Recordings are serving the first of two remix packages accompanying Steve Bug's great album "Collaboratory" these days with their cat.no. 109A, while part two will be numbered as 109B. On rework duties are Ribn, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Sven Tasnadi who are all catching up on the quality House vibes delivered on Mr. Bug's longplayer. Ribn's version of "Like It Should Be" is quite epic and emphasizes the beauty of Gigi's enlightening vocals, whilst Motor City Drum Ensemble transforms the collaboratory work of Steve Bug & Donnacha Costello named "Still Music" into a deep chicago'esque monster with oldskool'ish basslines and a classic Acid House influences - defo the strongest track on this 12". Finally we have Sven Tasnadi's rework of "Passing Clouds" on B2, originally written and produced by Steve Bug & Simon Flower, a functional, whirring piece of percussive TechHouse providing thrills due to a combination of latin drums, a free floating main theme, uplifting stabs and male vocal samples. Defo a good one.
