Exclusive Premiere: Steve Bug – Knitting Hill (Poker Flat)

Artist: Steve Bug
Title: Solid Maybe
Label: Poker Flat
Release Date: 19th October 2018 | Retail link
Genre: House / Tech House

The man that needs no introduction returns on his own, ever-impressive Poker Flat imprint to drop yet more killer dancefloor treats.

‘Solid Maybe’ is a classic Steve Bug – thickly rounded kick, urgent percussion, and perfect squelchy bass tones. The track grows ever more restless, before unleashing blips, bleeps and bass tones that echo back to the early days of warp-era Sheffield.

‘Chordwalk Empire’ is more on the melodic side, a tech-house roller that as its name suggests, has a killer chord sequence that keeps the whole track in motion. ‘Knitting Hill’ rounds things off for this release, a tech-driven electronic funk work- out: deceptively simple on first listen but exhibiting all Steve Bug’s signature attention to detail and mastery of tension and release.
