French house music duo DJ Entwan aka Antoine Maitre and Dan Corco join forces on their Piston Recordings debut with the fantastic Lala La EP. Antoine is well known for his night time transformations where he brings his brand of electronic music to the discerning clubber. His influences range from Vincenzo D’amico, Max Chapman, George Privatti, Mirco Caruso and Mauro Venti among others. His tracks have been rocking floors for almost 8 years and he enjoys the support of a plethora of top jocks. Dan is influenced by new wave and the new beat sound along with strong links to the Detroit movement. He started to produce around the year 2000 and his first tracks were quickly signed to the prestigious Rotation Records run by Dave Angel (UK) as well as Scandium Records (France). Musically he is very open, he produces various styles and takes great pleasure in mixing genres and trying to innovate his sound. His solid productions have gained him more and more DJ gigs in France and beyond. Delighted to have these guys on board.

The early French house inspired Break Down intros with a nice powerful punchy kick drum alongside crispy hi hats that provide a dancey beat to get down to. A cool discofied funky bassline fades in which is joined by familiar guitar licks and pretty soon you will find yourself hooked on the groovy vibe on offer. The track oozes retro house and, aside from it being a dancefloor destroyer, will definitely get it a lot of attention for that. Not to be missed.

THE SLUM VAGABUNDS – SOLACE EP
Aug 2017 07

Lisbon based music duo The Slum Vagabunds aka Syper and Vanhell, mark their debut on Piston with the fantastic Solace EP which is a super sexy slice of dancey house music. Syper and Vanhell got together back in 2011, which is also the year they joined Fuse Records. They share a common identity strengthened by eclectic tastes and a creative freedom that allows them to run all the spoils of electronic music without any boundaries. They are attentive to the reality of the world we all live in and they arise as the representative name of memory and awareness to the imbalance that still exists in this so called modern world, where no one is absolutely saved. Inspired by the underground, The Slum Vagabunds present themselves on an alternative line, far from the mainstream, which is what makes their brand imprint gain strength in musical aspects ranging from deep house to modern techno.

Solace delivers a superb slice of quality house music for your ears right from the off with a tight drum section filled with chunky kicks and bright crispy hi hats leading the way. A deep and probing bassline lurks on the low end, drawing us deeper into its solid groove. Wonderfully rich chord pads fill the groove while distant vocals join in. On the break a simple melody provides cool contrasts before the track bursts back in with a super cool cord stab at the forefront. The track carries a fantastic dynamic that will definitely turn some heads.

Disturb intros with a very nice classic style kick drum and hi hat combi with a mixture of rhythmic percussions in the background. A powerful probing bassline joins in giving the track a solid house vibe. Mysterious spoken vocals signal the introduction of some gnarly sounds that capture the imagination as a chilling string fades in. The break offers a hypnotic sequence that builds and builds before those pumping beats and that solid bassline return for the duration. This one goes dark and is not to be missed.
