MIKE DENITZ – IT’S HERE EP
May 2017 22

Madrid based DJ and producer Mike Denitz returns to Piston Recordings for his second stint with the superb It’s Here EP. His last effort here – Come Back EP – proved popular among many and we’ve no doubt this one will follow suit. Since then he has released on several labels as well as featuring on My House Is Your House 14 for our parent label Bonzai Progressive. Nice to see him back for more.

This three tracker serves up a real nice tech house treat that gives us plenty of reasons to hit the floors. First up we have It’s Here which intros with a pumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combo. The deep basses have a building intensity which comes to the fore on the break creating a solid groove to get down to. Top notch stuff. Next up we have Chop That which sets out with punchy kicks and rhythmic percussions before a deep rumbling bassline takes over dominating the groove. Cool vocal shots litter the sound creating a dynamic layer while pads float across the spectrum. Superb stuff with a pounding beat that is not to be missed. Rounding off this fine pack we have the deeper One More Time with its slightly more minimal approach. The drums beat out a steady groove as sub level basses rattle the bass bins. Intense pads rise up alongside distant rave synths which are joined by a very cool spoken vocal creating an intriguing narrative. Excellent stuff once again that will not disappoint.

MIRKO GORELLI & PIERPAOLO PIEROTTI – BASSONE UK
May 2017 15

Italian DJ and producer Mirko Gorelli is back at Piston and is joined by fellow country-man, DJ and producer Pierpaolo Pierotti on the superb Bassone UK which is backed with Pump Up The Bass. Mirko’s last outing was back in 2016 with Travel which proved popular among many. Delighted to see him back at Piston as we just love what this guy does with music. Pierpaolo Pierotti spent his adolescence listening to house music between clubs and music cassettes. His journey begins as P.R. and event organizer leading him to work with some of the best Italian clubs including Aqva Discovillage Numana, ECU Rimini, Syncopate and Prince Riccione.

Bassone UK intros with cool classic style pumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi. Sharp claps and sporadic snares add movement to the rhythm getting us right into dancefloor mode. A prominent deep throbbing bassline comes through to dominate the groove before the track breaks to reveal remnants of oldskool drum and bass sounds. The synths are simply outstanding here and they capture the essence of house music in tech format. A top notch slice that is not to be missed.

Pump The Bass is the perfect title for this one, right from the off you know the bass is gonna get pumped as a tight drum section takes us up to a short break before the inevitable bass pumping begins. The track is elevated to classic status instantly thanks to the use of a much loved acapella from 1988 that fits so perfectly into this contemporary groove, gimme a phat beat, anyone. Swelling chords accompany the vocal adding richness to the sound making this an absolute must have track for any party set.

MIKE MORALES – COME WITH ME EP
May 2017 15

Mike Morales returns to Piston Recordings with the superb Come With Me EP. We last saw Mike under his Mi Ke moniker back in 2016 with his 214 EP which performed very well indeed and no doubt this latest effort will follow suit. Mike is a force to be reckoned with on the house scene as he’s been around for quite some time. He is heavily influenced by Portugal’s infamous underground scene and his name began resonating amongst established DJ’s and artists. His debut track – Dream Shattered, premiered on Digweed’s Transitions radio show in 2003 and since then he has continued to churn out top quality vibes.

Come With Me is a full on club driven monster with chunky beats and an outstandingly simple yet highly effective diva-esque vocal. Tight drums lead a flowing rhythm while a meandering bass weaves through the track to the backdrop of that superb wailing vocal that will definitely get booty’s on the floor. Warm chords litter the sound bringing in a richer vibe as various vocal snippets ring out. A wonderfully crafted slice that will not disappoint.

Dub With Me strips out most of the vocal with just a few select phrases thrown in to keep that club vibe alive. A powerful groove on this one that will hit the floors for sure.

Bumble-B intros with slicing hi hat patterns and a pumping kick drum before a deep rumbling bass joins in and gets the body moving. Soft melodies come through and cascade effortlessly through the sound, contrasting perfectly against the deeper elements of the groove. Short vocal snippets give the track an energetic vibe making this a straight up house stomper.
