Poker Flat Recordings keeps up its release schedule with another EP, this time from Gorge and Markus Homm. Gorge (aka Pit Waldmann) is the co-owner of 8bit Records, originally from Mannheim and has possibly carved a singular niche for himself over the past 20-odd years. Similarly, Markus Homm has possibly been influential in developing the scene in his native Romania, and is now working alongside the Poker Flat regular Mihai Popoviciu.
With this EP Gorge and Markus have merged their talents into these two tracks. ‘Holos' is a tightly wound slice of tech house, textured and layered with chords and a thick lower end.
'Glint' also showcases the duo's mutual understanding of the dynamics of the dancefloor - a groove is enhanced and expanded via subtle and effective melodic elements, including a pinch of acidic 303 sounds.
Gorge & Markus Homm ‘Holos’ is out 20 August on Poker Flat Recordings.
