Poker Flat Night

12:00 midnight: Steve Bug (Poker Flat/Ovum, Berlin, Germany)
Style: Electronic music

Steve Bug is one of electronic music’s true originals. Through his labels Poker Flat, Audiomatique, Dessous Recordings, Traffic Signs or Raw Elements, he has made a sizeable contribution to building the European house and techno scene as we know it. A dedicated, energetic and constantly innovative talent, he has been described as “the gentleman of techno”, because of his sense of duty and dependability as one of the world’s most renowned DJs and producers.

Having grown up in Germany’s techno and acid-house heyday, Steve Bug’s love for a perfect groove is as apparent now as it was back then. His DJ skills led him not down the typical path of the early-1990s trance and harder dance scene, but instead towards a fresher, hybrid deep house. Having released no fewer than six full-length LPs over the last two decades, his latest Paradise Sold, created alongside Langenberga full ten-track album of exquisitely crafted house music on Poker Flat—, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, and described as “elegantly euphoric” by Mixmag.

11 pm: Tim Engelhardt Live (Poker Flat/Fryhide/Cityfox, Cologne, Germany)
Style: Electronic music

Tim Engelhardt is one of Cologne’s youngest and brightest electronic music stars on the rise. He started his path to connoisseurship early on: trying to rewrite the piano pieces he had to practice at the age of eight, he showed an independent creative mind from the get-goa character trait that would prove extremely helpful for his later career as electronic music producer. Part of a diverse new breed of young producers that get their cues from all sorts of genres and listening situations, Tim still stands apart, having released his very first record when he was just 14 years old. Combining profound musical knowledge with intuitive playfulness, his solid pianist background becomes rather obvious in the great care he takes over harmonies and an expanded melodic structure. His music stands out for its organic fluidity and atmospheric dexterity.

Tim has released a torrent of tracks and remixes with a wide range of labelsTraumSchallplatten, WIR, Babiczstyle, Amuse Gueule, Ostwind Records, Popart Music, Playmusic-Productions, Parquet Recordings, Manual Music, and Steve Bug’s iconic Poker Flat Recordings. His busy schedule is testament to his growing popularity among electronic music fans: tours to the USA, Asia, India and Australia are underway.Inspiration for Tim’s personal brand of melodic house and techno can come from many sources: childhood memories of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells playing in his dad’s car, a walk in nature, or simply mining his modular synth for happy accidents.
