Jeff Samuel (Poker Flat, Spectral, Trapez | Berlin), Derek Plaslaiko (The Bunker, Spectral | NYC)
Jeff Samuel first caught our attention when he appeared at Magda's Gel and Weave party at Openair in 2002, and then again with an amazing set at the Mutek picnic in 2004. He completely stole the show when we caught him in his hometown of Seattle at the Decibel Festival (the night after he played The Bunker) on his US tour last year. He's released over 20 singles in the past 7 years, on labels like Dan Bell's 7th City, Karloff, Spectral, Pokerflat, Morris/Audio, Tektite, Frankie, and many more. He has a long-standing relationship with Triple R's Trapez label that has resulted in eight 12"s. He has been remixed by Akufen and Ricardo Villalobos, and gets his tracks charted by practically every big DJ in the techno world (Hawtin, Bug, Wink, Tejada, Mayer, and Vath, just to name a few). Tonight is his second performance at the Bunker.
