MAX BIOCCA – CALVIN IS BACK
Jun 2017 19

Buenos Aires based DJ and producer Max Biocca debuts on Piston with Calvin Is Back, a pumping two track tech house joint that will rock the floors, no doubt. In the last couple of years Max has seen several releases on labels including Beatamin Recordings and Balkan Connection Tech. His production style delivers quality vibes with every release and we’re delighted to have him on board at Piston.

Calvin Is Back intros with a subdued kick drum and various percussions before a bright crispy hi hat comes through to get the rhythm moving nicely. The kicks are soon boosted with a mighty thump alongside a deep rumbling bassline which sets the tone for the monstrous tech house vibe. In the background we find a myriad of subtle sounds that add some wonderfully textured layers and giving the groove a lot of character. One for the late night sessions here, not to be missed.

Won’t Give In sets off with a cool percussion driven intro filled with shuffling hats and sharp claps. A pounding kick drum comes through to take over and we’re soon locked into the driving tech fuelled groove. The bassline probes deep here and will definitely give the bins a bit of work to do. Throughout the track we’re treated to an array of FX and some cool keys that give a unique character to the sound. Superb stuff and a must have for sure.

MICHAEL BRANDI – BREAK IT
Jun 2017 12

Michael Brandi debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb tech house fuelled two tracker entitled Break It. DJ and producer Michael remains on the mysterious side, but we do know he loves to spin deep sets and his production skills are tight. Hopefully we will see more of this guy in the future.

Break It sets off with that classic kick and hi hat arrangement before various other percussions join in to settle into a smooth rhythmic flow. A sub level bass comes through and dominates the groove with its woofer shuddering prowess. A one shot vocal delivers a cool clubby vibe as that bass fades out to reveal a surreal FX driven sequence on the vocal before those tight drums and chest intruding bass returns. Excellent stuff that is not to be missed.

Ye intros with a cool muted kick drum and intricate percussion combo that teases us into wanting more thump on the kicks, and that’s just what we get as the kicks are opened up to reveal just that. The track really lifts of when the bassline slides in at a meandering pace bringing a smooth tech vibe to the groove. Hypnotic and mesmeric, this one will definitely get the booty’s shaking on the floors.

BOYARD – STILL IN SPACE
Jun 2017 12

Belfast based Boyard is back at Piston Recordings with another dishing of elegantly funky house music in the form of his newest two tracker entitled Still In Space. We were blown away by his debut cut – After Hours, back in April 2017 and we’ve no doubt this one will follow suit.

Still In Space delivers a smooth and deep groove right from the off thanks to a fantastic lush meandering bassline and a super tight rhythmic beat. A sultry voice crops up as the groove deepens with surreal atmospheric pads and FX coming through. Bright pianos come in on the break before melting away and leaving us locked into this hypnotically infectious slice. Top notch stuff once again from Boyard.

Sunrise intros with a nice slapped drum pattern and a warm house chord over the top. Punchy beats and shuffling percussions form up to create a nice rhythmic flow to the groove while a probing bassline dance across the track. Cool stabbing keys come in alongside high strings for that classic deep house sound. On the break the drums are accompanied by cool vocals before the beat returns for the duration. A definite must have track in your arsenal.
