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.

EAT DUST – UNDERDOG EP
Oct 2017 02

Portuguese DJ and producer Mario Silva aka Eat Dust returns to Piston for his 8th outing with the superb two tracker – Underdog. Over the last number years this guy has released some excellent cuts on various labels including Obscura Recordings, Plastik Galaxy and Dubtek Records to name just a few. He has also shown up on Monog Records back in 2014 with Portrait Illusions and a remix on HedUbble’s Animal Feeling as well as an appearance on Tech House Toolbox 3 for Bonzai Progressive. On the DJ circuit Mario enjoys playing gigs all over Portugal, particularly in the underground scene. He is a constant presence at Ramboya parties and a member of the collective LIVE Lisbon. His tracks are championed by many jocks around the world which is a testament to his unique style.

Underdog intros with a cool rhythmic drum arrangement that is soon joined by a chunky kick drum that gets things moving nicely. A deep and groovy bassline rattles the lower end before being joined by some excellent chords and scattered vocals. On the break club driven pads fade in to the backdrop of a snare roll that takes us right back into full on mode for the duration.

Paradigma sets off with an upbeat intro filled with nice chunky beats and shuffling hats. Drum patterns form up delivering a flowing rhythm to the sound before short stabby synths join in. A well crafted subby bassline comes through bringing lots of warmth along the way. Short vocal snippets are introduced alongside groovy keys resulting in a tight, tech groove. A definite must have for sure.

DANIEL RAY – EXIT 1 EP
Oct 2017 02

South Africa based Daniel Ray heads up our next Piston release with the superb two track deep house joint entitled Exit 1 EP. This guy continues to impress with his production style, he’s provided a plethora of fine cuts over the years on Piston and Eyepatch Recordings as well as appearing on several compilations. Daniel is also the man behind the electronica, downtempo and breaks project Placid Larry with several albums already under his belt. Always a pleasure to have Daniel on board and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.

Exit 1 takes us on a journey deep into house with a sultry melancholic flavour. Dubby beats and muddy bass tones paint a murky and mysterious picture. The deep groove penetrates into your soul, forcing you to lock on with an air of contemplation. A rich atmosphere filled with contrasting sounds generates an intensity and gives the track character. A solid slice that will keep the late night floors busy.

Poly Snatch intros with a nice punchy kick drum over a melancholic organ drone. Subtle, shuffling hi hats and percussion FX fade in alongside bright notes and a dominating low piano chord. A multi-layered bass section produces some superb results, keeping the track firmly in the deep house arena. A wonderfully rich and hypnotic cut that will not disappoint.
