press: “ Steve Bug is a one of electronic music's most prolific ambassadors. Next up for the German minimal dance connoisseur is another stellar release: the Coconut Paradise EP via his own Poker Flat Recordings, which is now in its 16th year. A master class in crisp, high-definition house (XLR8R) Now Steve returns to his prized label with a three track EP and you've got a lot to look forward to. The 'Coconut Paradise' EP is another fine example of Bug's production skills. (Mixmag) ‘Coconut Paradise’, ‘Thick As Mud’ and ‘Pants On Fire’ don’t have much in common apart from the relentless groove so characteristic of Steve Bug. From House to metallic sounds and dubby synths, the artist innovates and surprises us – in a good way. Yet another solid EP that completes the impressive discography of an artist who doesn’t have much left to prove. (Cue And Play) Quality Cuts (Data Transmission) The EP excels in Bug class with three solid original tracks from the master himself. (UpFront Beats) Steve Bug flexes his sun-drenched deep house muscles with his Coconut Paradise EP. (dmc world magazine) One EP. Three outstanding tunes. Yet another formidable addition to an impressive discography. (Different Grooves) Steve Bug is a bit of a legend. He’s been around for a long while now, establishing his label Poker Flat as a home for high quality club music, while also building his own reputation as a skilled selector and a great producer, too. The label celebrated 15 years in the business last year and he’s soon to drop a new solo EP „Coconut Paradise“. (Deep House London) Like (Pete Tong, Radio1) A brilliant and exciting EP (DJ Times USA) Nicely crafted release – dynamic and diverse sounds. (Diversions Radio Toronto) Elegance defined. (Electric Feel DJs) Cool EP (Tsugi) Next great EP by Mister Bug (1Live) Great, love the vibe. (Faze Mag) Daring tracks by Mr. Bug (DJ Mag Netherlands) Superb release. (Dub Ibiza) REAL deep house here. (DJ Mag Spain) ”
