Poker Flat welcomes Aril Brikha. The Swede's 1998 debut "Groove La Chord" remains a tech house big floor classic and his live-sets have been highly appreciated all the way from DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival) to in-vogue clubs like London's Fabric and Tokyo's Air and Yellow, where he has been playing his take on Detroit-techno with his special spacey soulful and funky flavour. They don't come along very often, but when they do, Aril Brikha releases are guaranteed to get people of eclectic musical affinities all under one groove. After his Kompakt release earlier this year, Brikha joins Poker Flat with a welcome dose of hi-end melodic deep techno soul. "Akire" is trademark Brikha deepness. It wins quickly with it's emotional and dark dirty bass-line grooves with light sample work and atmospheric build-ups."Life Like" also follows his unique arrangements - building up softly and tweaking out with strong percussions complemented by subtle kicks and surges, backed up with the synths - making a killer track."To Beginn" works with it's straightforward funky bassline and dry percussion making it a straight-up floor-shaker. Akire is not a simple genre centric house or techno 12", Brikha has dropped eclectic elements of electronic music, creating weaving warm hooks and spacey disco techno, resulting in his well known vspacious atmosphere.

"For the moment I never played it, but it's good EP, maybe not for my set put I like it. Best Oxia"

Jeff Bennett

"Great piece of music just feels a bit to late somehow, also a bit to progressive allthough it feels very detroity. Personally i really enjoy it but not sure if ill play them."

Josh Wink (Ovum)

"Big fan of Aril. These tracks seem very different from his older things, which is nice to hear an artist progress... I just think it's okay. I like "To Begin" the best of the 3, and will be testing out more. Thanks- W"

Ralph Lawson (2020 Vision)

"This is really superb!!!!! I was very dissapointed with his return on Kompakt but this is REAL Aril Brihka or how I expect him to be! LOVE IT!"

Aril Brikha
(Poker Flat 83/Word And Sound)
Niemand erwartet von dem Schweden Aril Brikha ein zweites ?Groove La Chord". Sein Hit aus dem Jahre 1998 ist eine der Platten, die man eben nur einmal im Leben macht. Diese EP auf Pokerflat bewegt sich irgendwo zwischen Detroit-Inspiration und europäischen Phänomenen wie Industrial-lastigen Basslines und trancigem Grundgefühl. Eine ungewöhnliche Mischung und nicht ohne Reiz. Gerade der Titeltrack ?Akire? dürfte sich in vielen Sets wiederfinden, ein wenig verträumt und gleichzeitig treibend ist er gutes Futter für die Clubs. AB
