Reference remixes TJ Kong & Modular K for Pokerflat

TJ Kong & Modular K present ‘End-game‘, the first single to be lifted off the CD on Poker Flat. Shuffling and sparkling with urgent, peak-time electronic disco vibes, ‘End-game‘ is one of the calling cards from their album, which as it happens is jammed packed with stand-out cuts. Freaking and peaking over almost 10 minutes, the pair are not afraid of fully exploring and expanding a jam until they have worked it as much as possible! The pumping Reference remix leads us into even bigger room zones as an old school techno vibe lifts us up and carries us into the late night. Strong, rushing and full of tension, this mix is a guaranteed festival goosebumb moment!
