Daniel Dexter is the latest new talent to emerge as part of the Poker Flat crew. After some success with his strong, futuristic productions on Semester Musik, the Berlin based producer has found a new home in Steve Bug’s modern house magnate.
The moody, storming ‘No House For Old Men’ is a superb example of Daniel’s talents. Synth-heavy, dramatic and restrained, this slow burning houser lifts and climbs into spacey, ecstatic moments as its Detroit influenced keys and Carl Craig-esque peaks bring it home.
The groovy ‘Who Knows Motorcity’ works a simple yet addictive theme in a powerful pop-house moment, especially designed for summertime evening action. Clean, bright percussion and rubbery synths flavour this delightful second course!
The deeper, hypnotic tones of ‘The Other Day’ have an almost soundtrack quality as subtle key changes and detailed sound design take this track into more subterranean realms. Melancholic yet positive in its resolution, this is future house music in its prime!
As a digital bonus the funky organ-led grooves of ‘Real Life’ swing along with some great old-school references, yet keeping it fresh for a new generation.
