MIANYO – BREAKING BYTES EP
Mar 2017 13

Returning to Piston Recordings after a bit of a hiatus we have Spanish DJ and producer Mianyo with his fantastic two track EP entitled Breaking Bytes. It was way back in 2014 when we last saw this guy here at Piston and we’re delighted he has returned. Since his Beat Club EP he has racked up quite an impressive list of quality cuts on various labels and has worked with a few top artists on other projects. Hopefully we’ll be seeing much more form this guy in the future.

Breaking Chords intros with a beautifully surreal sequence filled with ethereal pads and a mesmeric high string alongside subtle percussions. A cool broken beat comes through before subsiding and leaving us with those pads once more. The track then goes into full on deep house mode with a flowing 4 x 4 structure that will guide feet to the floors. A warming bassline reside perfectly on the low end as superb gated synths deliver that perfect house groove. A wonderfully nostalgic vibe that will not disappoint.

Piano Bytes sets out with a cool and crispy hi hat which is paired with a sharp clap. A pumping kick drum soon follows as does a probing, deep bassline that moves effortlessly through the sound. Superb chord stabs fade in and we find ourselves locked into a classic styled garage groove that will both satisfy and electrify. The break is where this track really starts to shine as it throws in a real nice piano riff that will tear up the floors with ease. Top notch stuff that you do not want to miss.

LEANDRO SILVA – NADA
Mar 2017 06

House music maestro Leandro Silva is back for his fourth Piston outing with the superb Nada which comes hot on the heels of his last slice Aural. His repertoire continues to grow together with Piston’s partner label Igual Recordings where he has unleashed a few gems of his own. He continues to deliver killer sets at top parties and radioshows and is a very much revered artist among many. Always a pleasure to see new material from this guy.

Nada delivers a sublime, deep house track that straddles minimalism and leans heavily into a hypnotic groove from start to finish. The drums are magical here, they create a sing song musical vibe courtesy of some expertly tweaked pitch control from Leandro. The occasional warm chord crops up alongside cool vocals and in the background we find an almost eerie string that lurks menacingly. A beautifully intricate arrangement that will not disappoint.

Rewind intros with a solid pumping kick drum with a nice and bassy tail end. Bright crispy hi hats slice through the lower frequencies as percussion patterns start to build. A deep rumbling bassline comes through bringing depth to the sound while warming chords fade in to deliver that pure deep house groove. Super stuff from Leandro and a must have track.

DISTILLED NOISE – SOLID ROOTS EP
Mar 2017 06

Italian DJ and producer Francesco Tegazzin aka Distilled Noise debuts on Piston Recordings with his Solid Roots EP. Growing up in and around Verona, Francesco found electronic music which he used to express his musical creativity. His roots lie in Blues and Rock n Roll and he uses these influences alongside vintage samples while shaping his own unique groove. We’re glad to have this young up and coming artist on the roster and we hope to see more in the future.

Mr. Please Please Please shows off Francesco’s use of the vintage sound with perfectly placed FX and some very cool vocal samples. The intro boasts a bass free kick drum that is soon joined by layers of percussions that deliver a solid rhythmic groove. The kicks get beefed up and lead us straight to the floor while a lazy bassline meanders through the sound effortlessly. Cool pianos and various other sounds combine beautifully to fill the track out and make it a definite must have for the groovier parties.

Up next we have a track that not only has a cool title but is also a seriously eclectic slice of house music. Walking On The Moog is a wonderful display of multi layered grooves with a nice jazzy rhythmic vibe. A tight drum arrangement carries the track along at a steady pace as a myriad of colourful sounds create rich textured grooves. This one goes all out for the funk factor with some tasty riffs thrown in alongside various vocals. A top notch sliced that will not disappoint.
