Poker Flat Classics continues its highly promising series with a huge pair of reworks of a seminal Poker Flat track.
Martin Landsky’s '1000 miles' –originally released in 2006, rightfully takes the stage in the second instalment – receiving blistering remixes from two true masters.
Laurent Garnier’s incredible career barely needs commenting on; suffice to say he brings his trademark, tough and epic sound to the forefront here. Pushing '1000 miles' into yet more mind-bending shapes, the Frenchman injects the original with a new sense of urgency. Welding a fractured synth melody around Landsky’s big room hook, the results are a pure techno moment – sure to cause a stampede to the booth at most discerning clubs.
Holland’s Gerd, responsible for some recent incendiary dancefloor burners of his own, also drops another bomb here. Under his Geeeman persona, Gerd, twists '1000 miles' into a trippy, euphoric monster – a late night house detonation for the heads and a fitting tribute to Landsky’s modern classic.
The digital release features another three tracks, which include Landsky's original versions of '1000 miles' and its re-interpretation '2000 miles', as well as the stunning Loco Dice remix of '1000 miles'.
