Review: There is no doubt that Steve Bug is one of house and techno's most respected artists, and the second volume of this compilation demonstrates why he is such an essential part of the underground. It contains Bug standards like the seductive melodies of "Chordwalk Empire" and the deeper than deep house of "Different in Detroit", which sit alongside more tripped out tracks like the 303-soaked, moody bass of "Tweaky Blinders" and the low-slung jacking house of his Traffic Signs project, represented here with the vocal-led "Cookie Jar". It's a fitting tribute to one of electronic music's most talented producers.
Review: Long-standing German tech-house legend Steve Bug, founder of both Pokerflat and Dessour, returns to the latter label with something a bit special, and likely to satisfy all of your DJ needs. The producing don has taken it upon himself to remix a twelve tunes, all from different artists that have shaped the sound of house and techno as we know it today. You'll find Bug's retouches on artists like Simon Baker, Manuel Tur, and even Lovebirds. However, the special moments come from his sleek Re-Dub of Chez Damier's mythical house bomb "New York Dub", a stripped back edit of Laurent Garnier's "Whistle For Frankie, and the gorgeously deep swells of his remix of "Pensum" by Francis Harris. Masterful, and very much recommended.
