MARCO MADIA – JACKALS EP
Oct 2017 16

Marco Madia is back at Piston Recordings with his 11th outing on the label, and once again he delivers only the finest quality sounds that are perfect for the groovier floors out there. His last effort here – Gray Squirrel EP – saw great support from across the board which is a testament to the talents this guy has to offer. Always a pleasure to have his latest works drop into the inbox and no doubt we’ll be hearing more in the future.

Golden Jackal opens with a smooth funky riff that draws you in before a nice chunky beat thumps out a solid rhythm with a little help from some cool percussion elements. The funky keys and chords continue on a deep house vein as a deep rumbling bassline fades in becoming the dominant force of the groove for the duration. A sublime slice of deep house that will not disappoint.

Side-Striped Jackal sets off with a Blues vibe that will definitely grab attention with its liking to a smooth John Lee Hooker riff. Tight betas and a rumbling bassline soon join in and we find ourselves getting down to the floor. Layers upon layers stack up effortlessly delivering a very nice groove indeed, not to be missed.

Black-Backed Jackal intros with a cool live feeling drum arrangement with a hypnotic background. A deep, subby bassline bursts through as the beats get a nice thump and the synths start to fade in alongside rhythmic percussions. Real deep and moody keys litter the groove as we’re hypnotised with that warming deep house vibe. Definitely a late night session weapon.

RICKY KK – HARDGROOVE
Oct 2017 16

Ricky KK delights with his Piston Recordings solo debut slice entitled Hardgroove. Italian DJ and producer duo Riccardo Lippi is one half of Stranger Boys who had a very well received cut here back at the start of 2017 with Industry.

Hardgroove is a title that definitely does the track just and vice versa. Right from the off you get a nice thumping kick drum coupled with crispy hi hats and rhythmic percussions. The track carries a tribal element that fits nicely with the deep house vibe on offer. Subtle chords lace the deep groove as the drums and bass do the work to keep the booty’s shakin’. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Season Ended goes deep with a surreal vibe filled with strangely eerie pads and piercing horns. A solid drum arrangement drives the track as those keys work on our imaginations. On the low end a subtle bass holds the track up nicely as cool vocal captivates. The keys deliver a melancholic sequence as a striking vocal shows up to get the goosebumps rising. An ethereal slice of deep house that is not to be missed.

His tracks have graced labels such as Vudeux Records, Quanticman Records and Liquid Music with a healthy dose of support coming in from all quarters. Delighted to have him on board and no doubt the music world will be seeing much more from him.

Go dishes out a solid tech house joint filled with tight beats and a deep grooving bassline. Flowing rhythms ooze from the expertly crafted percussions with a nice and crispy hi hat at the fore. The bassline weaves through the track effortlessly adding to the rhythmic qualities and keeping that ass shakin’. Cool spoken vocals litter the track adding an organic flavour to the sound. Top notch that will not disappoint.

I’m Not intros with a classic style punchy kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi. Cool vocals fade in bringing a clubby vibe to the sound before a deep monster bassline comes through to dominate the ensuing infectious groove.

Make My Body Go gets right down to business from the off thanks to a pumping tech house beat and a cool vocal shot.

A solid, hypnotic slice to keep the party rocking, not to be missed.

P.A.M.O. – COITUS EP
Oct 2017 09

French producer P.A.M.O. returns to Piston with another sublime slice of deep house in the two tracker Coitus. It’s been just over a year since we last saw P.A.M.O. on Piston, his last outing – Somewhere – gained great support and has since went on to feature in several compilations on various labels. Nice to see him back with another round of quality music.

Coitus offers up a solid helping of deep and sultry house music for the late night hedonist. The track is powered by a superb drum arrangement that forces you to move to the beat. A deep bassline meanders through the sound effortlessly but the main event here are those wonderful groovy chord stabs and lush pads that give the track its deep flavour. Top notch stuff you do not want to miss.

The aptly titled Bounce is up next and this is a track the floors are gonna love no doubt. A percussion laden intro leads us to a female vocal shot which delivers a cool club vibe. Deep probing basses are equally matched by garage style chord stabs, and the two blend very nicely indeed alongside a jazzy sax. A beautifully arranged slice of deep house and a definite must have.
