Scheduled for February 27th is the new Poker Flat Recordings-compilation named "Gunslingers And Greenhorns: Poker Flat Volume 9", showcasing what has happened within the past months on this highly respected imprint and introducing the future with a few fresh names and exclusive tracks physically released as 2xCD and 2x12". Talking the CD version the first part features a bunch of 10 unmixed tracks including - finally! - a dub version of Adultnapper feat. Black Light Smoke's "Idiot Fair", a hyper-tense Lee Curtiss rework of James What's thrilling "It Feels Wrong" alongside exclusive tunes by Sebastien San, NRK-head Nick Harris and others, all underlining the slightly darker musical path that Poker Flat recently took. One more playful exception is Alland Byallo's "One Of The Ones" which is well to be filed under the flag of happier House. CD2 holds a 16 track DJ-mix provided by no one less than Mr. Steve Bug, starting out with at least four exclusive tracks in a row including Aeromaschine's melodious "Zeit" and a dark Chicago-flavored Acid workout named "Acid Shaking" by F.E.X. & Ron Costa, drifts off into dubby spheres with SHOW-B's "Time Comes" and generates a hypnotizing maelstrom somewhat in between Intelligent Techno and dancefloor thrill, sucking the consumers mind in and sending everyone into deeper space - a seductive journey with no return. This mix is essential.
