This Is What Happens, the third release on the Botanika label, is a story of two cities: Tel-Aviv, Israel, represented on the A side by Polar Pair; and Detroit, USA, represented by both Atlantis, with a ferocious spoken word delivery, and Mark Flash, whose classic Detroit soulful techno remix occupies the B side – both of whom hail from the Underground Resistance collective.

The collaboration between Polar Pair and Atlantis, the voice behind UR’s classic Transitions, came about after a meeting in Tel Aviv in Spring 2007, and now the dubplate is creating serious club-buzz in the underground scenes of both cities, as in the UR related forums.

Polar Pair is the ongoing production team of Malkiel Grossman and Nadav Ravid (aka NDV). They have collaborated with Maddslinky, Shawn Lee, Daz-I-Kue, Sinden, and have remixed the likes of Al Haca, Bonde Do Role and Black Devil Disco Club.

Punk-Funk, cut-up breaks and classic UR techno colliding on the third release of the Tel-Aviv based label – representing the cutting-edge diversity of the artistic/musical collective behind it.

The delicious artwork was designed by Heela Harel, based on a picture taken by Dania Heller
