Coming up next via his own Poker Flat Recordings label is Steve Bug's new double-A-sided 12" "Those Grooves" featuring his tune "Tell Me Why" on the flip side. Announcing an album to come these two tracks are giving a hint of what is to expect - quality as usual for sure but with a slightly different twist as "Those Grooves" seems to take a step back from the immanent, stripped-down Chicago-influences that have always been found in his music but to lean forward to a warmer, more melodic and a - yes! - slightly deep, nearly trancey feel that is even intensified by its massive, speed changing and slowed out breakdown - serving a trick that hasn't been heard in ages and defo made to increase the tunes dancefloor impact by numbers. But the true winner is "Tell My Why", a dark moody affair with an even film noir-fitting feel in its chords and a few freaky, motor city reminiscing synth lines that will be appreciated by connaisseurs throughout any late night session. Good one.
