Last september, The Drone had a nice chat with Pokerflat legend Steve Bug about his "Noir" album and his first encounter with house music around 1987,when he was still a hairdresser. Filmed at Le Rex Club, Paris.
Steve Bug is one of the elder statesmen of house, despite his youthful appearance he has been a major cog in underground electronic music machinery since the late 90's. His label Pokerflat was turning out stripped back simple house grooves long before minimal blew up and many would credit the label as being the forerunning pioneers in that scene. It is perhaps his unwillingness to bow to hype....
The Poker Flat boss's fifth studio album, due for release next week, sees lush melody combine with simple groove over ten tracks.More ›
