MARCO MADIA – EGRET EP
Jan 2017 16

Marco Madia returns to Piston with the superb three track Egrets EP. This one marks his 7th outing for us and comes after his latest offering Ascidians back in Summer 2016. He’s also appeared on various compilations over the years. Marco has been in and around the underground scene for a number of years. In 2006 he moved to Berlin where he got a degree audio engineering and soon started work as a sound designer. He also produces under the pseudonym Flip Morton and his experience has led to working on film soundtracks and exhibitions. Always a pleasure to have his work drop into the inbox.

First up we have Great Egret which delivers a solid deep house slice with an effortless display of tight drum arrangement and captivating sounds. The track is led by a chunky kick drum and crispy hi hat combo alongside a deep throbbing bassline. The bass meanders through the sound beautifully and contrasts perfectly with the hypnotic arpeggios that cascade throughout. A simplistic yet extremely effect cut that you will not want to miss.

Snowy Egret captures a dramatic scene with a wonderfully intense deep house workout. Solid drum and percussion patterns deliver a flowing rhythm while a deep resonating bassline rises up from the depths. Mesmeric synths and pads keep us locked in for the duration as the intensity rises through the layers. A deep and thoughtful track that will be a welcome addition to any late night set.

Little Egret delves deeper into house with a wonderfully rich and captivating sound. Chunky kick drums and beautifully crafted intricate percussion patterns create a nice rhythmic flow. Swirling pads are matched with very subtle chord stabs that create a sublime and infectious groove from start to finish. Get this one in your bag, not to be missed.

DANIEL RAY – LOW HEALS
Jan 2017 09

Daniel Ray returns to Piston Recordings with another superbly crafted deep house double entitled Low Heals. Over the last few years Daniel has delivered some top quality sounds both here and over at Eyepatch Recordings. His last effort – Tinker was very well received indeed and we’ve no doubt he will continue to bring his A-game to everything he touches.

Low Heals opens with scattered percussions that are soon joined by a chunky kick drum and deep piano chords. Shuffling hats pick up the rhythm as deep bassy notes come through. A general air of melancholy and intrigue arises as the track lays down its roots. Sweeping pads and strings create interesting textures throughout that gives the track character. A beautifully constructed slice of deep house grooves that will not disappoint.

Time Signal intros with a cool crispy hats and clangy FX alongside a punchy kick drum. Synths stabs and deep low frequencies leave their mark as the layers build. A slow mesmeric arppegio is joined by various one shot sounds creating intricate patterns. On the low end a lush bass lingers allowing other sounds their freedom to roam. A truly deep and thoughtful slice filled with wonderful piano chords that offer a hypnotic experience, top notch stuff.

Southern Groove aka Adrian Romero and Mariano Chiappe are back at Piston Recordings for more of their house fuelled shenanigans in the form of the superb two tracker entitled Dirty Business. The duo’s last outing here was back in May 2016 with Bodyjack which gained great support across the board. Delighted to have them back once again and we look forward to more in the future.

Funky fills come through creating perfect ass shakin’ moments as chunky kicks and a throbbing bassline dominate. Strong chords play a big role here making this a definite must have track.

The Other Side Of The Groove is a straight up delicious helping of pure house that will entice bodies to the floors no doubt. Pumping kick drums lead the way and are joined by a superb pitching bassline that grabs a hold of you and lock you in. Filtering guitar licks dominate as spoken vocals deliver their stereo sound vinyl record based narrative. A top notch cut that is a must for your house music arsenal.
