Danny eM is back at Piston with this fantastic three tracker entitled Voces EP. It’s been a while since we last saw him round these shores, it was July 2014 when he delivered his first Piston cut – Shades Of Summer EP. Heavily influenced by the early Chicago and New York sounds, Danny brings a wealth of quality to his productions which always raises the excitement levels and we can tell you that this one fits the bill.
Voces serves up a solid tech house workout with a tight drum arrangement that gets the rhythm flowing nicely. Big punchy kicks and bright crispy hats are joined by a plethora of rhythmic percussions that dish out a tribalistic vibe. The track breaks to reveal a soft chord before slamming us head first right back into this relentless groove. The perfect track to keep those dancing feet shuffling on the floors.
Interrupcion intros with a cool deep groove made up of tight drums and a warm rising synth alongside subtle funky guitar licks. An array of vocals litter the sound and are perfectly placed to keep the groove moving going deeper and deeper. Funky guitars and soft keys become a big focus on the track and are joined by some expert trumpeting later on. A feel good sound that will lift any set and get booty’s on the floor.
Sydril delivers a solid tech house groove right from the get go as chunky kicks and a wonderfully deep and lush bass combine to form the main body of the sound. Cool FX sweep across the sound as drum layers form up to bring a steady flowing rhythm. The track has a wonderful natural flow which is shown through contrasting sounds such as the cascading soft keys and the harsher noises that complement each other. A superb slice of tech here that will not disappoint.
Portuguese DJ and producer Mario Silva aka Eat Dust returns to Piston with another fine slice of Tech House on his latest offering entitled Invaders EP. Mario is no stranger to these shores as he made his debut here back at the start of 2016 with the Savages EP which gained great support from all over. We’re delighted to see him back and no doubt we’ll be seeing more from this guy in the future.
First up we have Invaders which gets going with a nice solid kick and a cool shuffling hat sequence that will surely get butts moving towards the floors. The track takes on a smooth persona with subtle synths delivering a bit of funk to the sound. Sprinklings of acid and vocal snippets are littered throughout and add cool textures to the tech groove. The big hitter here though is that bassline as it effortlessly meanders through the sound ramping up the groove in style. A nice phat sound that will be a welcome addition in any set.
Shades Of Love intros with a punchy kick drum and bright hats and percussions that form into a cool rhythmic flow. The track breaks to reveal a cool vocal before the beats come back with a superb phat bassline that probes through the sound beautifully. The tech grooves ooze out of this one and has that dancey vibe the floors are gonna love. The vocals continue throughout and are joined by cool chord stabs that have a nice retro edge. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.
Carlo Caldareri returns and hits us up with another one of his superb tech house fuelled cuts that will surely get the floors pumping. His last outing on Piston came back in November 2015 when he appeared on remix duty for Bonetti’s Pumping Pumping which gained great support all over. Always an exciting time when this guys tunes come into the office and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more from him in the future.
People Run intros with a very cool percussion arrangement followed up by a nice chunky kick drum. Shuffling hats and rides fill the gaps and set the rhythm on the loose. Cool vocal snippets come through and bring a subtle retro theme to the sound. The bassline takes over and walks flawlessly across the groove with ass shakin precision. The break throws up more cool vocals before we get right back into full on mode. A beautifully constructed slice here that will appeal to the movers and shakers on any floor.
Move Right sets off with a bright crispy hat and sharp claps alongside a pounding kick drum that will rattle the cones on any speaker system. The rhythm lifts off as those shuffling hats gain momentum before a short break unleashes the dirty tech fuelled bassline. A big focus on the drums here which is great news for the purists, but we do get a glimpse at some subtle synths that add cool textures throughout. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.
