Back To Mine with Defex & Blondewearingblack

Defex is the alias of Franz Hager, a Bavaria-born DJ and producer who has been actively making hard hitting house and techno for some time. As he brings his talents to Steve Bug’s Poker Flat Recordings with Ibiza vocal icon, Blondewearingblack, titled, ‘We Are The Beat!’, DMCWorld goes back to mine with this perfect pairing.


Lindstrøm & Christabelle – Baby Can’t Stop – Alternate Version 2

Lindstrøm & Christabelle - Baby Can't Stop - Alternate Version 2 (rare)

Beats, funky hook, weird noises and an unleashed Christabelle telling us she can’t stop. Nobody is going to bed anytime soon!

Italo Brutalo – I Feel Lonely

Italo Brutalo – I feel lonely

My favorite track of Italo Brutalo’s new album. Dreamy, melancholic, yet still full of hope – and he did it in my studio in Ibiza!

The Soulchip – Let’s Rock (Tom Novy vs Eniac Remix)

the soulchip - let's rock (Tom Novy vs Eniac Remix)

Timeless stripped back House-Monster with amazing vocals. It was very hard to get back in the days when it came out in 1997. I went 150km to Munich by train when i found out this record was finally back in stock! Whoever asks about my background at home parties gets to hear this track.

Defex & Blondewearingblack – I Win

Defex & Blondewearingblack - I Win (Original Mix) [Muna Musik 012]

Our first release together. Actually we recorded the vocals for a different song, but it was a bit too sweet. After a club session I experimented with my studio partner on what else we could do with the vocals – I can’t remember how we got to acid house, it just flowed!

Steve Bug – Loverboy

Steve Bug - Loverboy

The first ever Poker Flat release from 1999 was and still is an obvious afterparty sunset cuddle track. A big honor to have We Are The Beat out on Poker Flat now!



Duran Duran – Girls On Film (Night Version)

Duran Duran - Girls On Film (Extended Night Version)

It’s the first thing I put on when I have people back to mine – it’s sexy, amazing synth pop and it’s re-starts a party!

Little Dragon – Ritual Union

Little Dragon - Ritual Union

Organic techno melodic heaven – with hope! It’s hard and romantic and I love it

Zodiac Childs – O TO THE M

Pure DnB heaven made by my very good friend and producer with me on vocals…dark and thoughtful- how I like it

D*Note – Waiting Hopefully (4 Hero Remix)

D*Note - Waiting Hopefully (4 Hero Remix)

Dub dnb and beautiful- on the first ever Cafe Mambo compilation by Pete Gooding 1997 – one of the reasons I came to the island in the first place!

Fleetwood Mac – The Chain

Fleetwood Mac - The Chain

Where you’re hugging each other singing then jumping up and down like crazy after the build – what a finisher and WHAT a bass guitar

‘We Are The Beat’ is out now on Poker Flat:
