Finally Poker Flat Recordings hits the 120 12" releases mark and sees two longtime heavyweight champions in electronic music teaming up once again, four years after their last collaboration release "Silicon Ballet". Yes, we're talking Steve Bug & Cle here and I guess none of them needs any further introduction. On the A-side of their forthcoming 12" we've the title track "Seven Hills", a very basic and stripped down TechHouse workout featuring ecstatic strings and a quiet trancey breakdown that'll surely drive punters mad not only when played out at one of the several open air parties and festivals about to happen this summer. Plus: the extended play time stretched out far beyond the usual 6 minutes is another bonus win. "Monkey Shoulder" on the flip is on a deeper tip, more rollin' and obviously influenced by Secret Cinema's technoid evergreen "Timeless Altitude", using similar aesthetics and sounds, referring to the oldskool and providing something good and useful for all jocks out there.
