Tim Engelhardt – First Contact – Poker Flat Recordings

A stunning piece of electronic music from Tim Engelhardt. First Contact, is soulfully resonate, forward-thinking capturing the essence of an imagined reality with its smouldering drums, cutting synthesizers plus probing bass. Creating a sublime atmosphere in the process while punching its weight in gold, this resolute production will serve both the dancefloor and your heart. Just to highlight that perspective a Beatless Tool proves the point with blazing keys setting the world alight. Second original, Light The Fire then carves out deeper grooves with more thought-provoking sights and sounds feeling just perfect.

Berkson & What – Keep On feat. Robert Owens (Tim Engelhardt Remixes) – Poker Flat Recordings

Does twenty years feel like a long time to you? Perhaps not if you’ve reached a certain vintage, but in the end it’s all about the music and how it survives exposure to the ticking clock. Celebrating that timespan then is a series of remixes with this from Tim Engelhardt beginning the sequence in two parts. Saluting, Keep On and featuring the unmistakable time honoured voice of one Robert Owens, Remix A highlights all of the vocal goodness on offer, alongside its timely message, over a bed of electronically charged rhythms feeling that bit loser with an addictive, shuffling funkiness very much in evidence. Remix B injects a little extra energy rearranging the song over brisker drums and freshly squeezed sounds. Although, either way this is a classic moment to add the labels already robust canon.

Steve Bug & Langenberg – NGC 6240 – Poker Flat Recordings

Lifted from his the current album Paradise Sold this joint collaboration alongside Langenberg seeks out an urgency that becomes all too apparent depending on the numbers. From one aspect the undulating stabs feel like haunting, atmospheric ruminations. Yet viewed from another the reoccurring, sizzling Acid lines are purely fierce, cutting determinedly through the airwaves backed-up by a single strident kick drum. Never one to underplay the power of music in all its forms NGC 6240 supplies and then satisfies the demand for invigorating moments. Remixes come from Tim Engelhardt who lifts the rhythms skyward adding hints of melody amid the rush of synthesized keys. Plus, from Vince Watson who inevitably stokes the fire igniting the array of stabs punctuating and building the tension in expert fashion.
