Poker Flat Recordings proudly presents it’s fifth label compilation! “Bets’n’Bluffs” features the essence of the Poker Flat single-releases from the current season as well as a preview on things to come plus some brandnew exclusive tracks. From bare and trippy minimal techno of Argy’s huge hit “Love Dose” or Berkson & What’s “If I Was A Man” to Trentemøller ‘s bombastic “Always Something Better”, from funky hipshakers á la Bug & Tanzmann’s “Shock” or Chardronnet’s “Shake It” to quirky soundscapes - the album covers the full range of modern electronic cutting edge music. The fifth Poker Flat statement features Steve’s Berlin based inmates such as Guido Schneider, Martin Landsky and Martini Bros as well as internatinally well reputed producers like Trentemoller, John Tejada, Luciano, Patrick Chardronnet or Martin Buttrich and highly talented newcomers like Argy, Dan Berkson & James What, Limacon, Philippe Autuori, Sian and Jamie Jones. “Poker Flat Volume 5” includes the best hits from the current season spearheaded by Luciano’s remix for Argy’s “Love Dose”, Martin Landsky’s “1000 Miles”, Steve Bug’s “Smackman”, Chardronnet’s “Shake It” and Trentemøller’s “Always Something Better” as well as still to be released future classics like Martin Buttrich’s “Snapshots” or “If I Was A Man” by Berkson & What.

Martin has been member of the Poker Flat family since the early days and apart from his album “In Between” (pfrcd04) he released eight fantastic singles on Poker Flat - most recently the clubhit “1000 Miles” (/w Loco Dice remix).
