MARCO MADIA – LEMURS EP
Jun 2017 05

Piston firm favourite Marco Madia returns with his eighth production for us in the form of the fantastic Lemurs EP. One thing you will notice about all of his productions is the attention to the detail, ensuring a quality sound with every release. 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 in 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. His last outing – Toucan EP – proved popular and no doubt we’ll see more of the same here.

Sifaka sets out with the sole purpose of wrapping us up in a warm deep and sultry house groove. This is achieved right from the first few bars as a mesmerizing and rich synth chord meanders between a tight drum section. A deep droning bassline sits perfectly on the bottom end while a funky guitar lick fades in. Beautifully simplistic in its nature which delivers maximum deep house flavour, a must have for sure.

Indri gets right down to business with an intro filled with sweeping pads and a bassline that bubbles up from the depths. A tight drum section of chunky kicks and rhythmic percussions leads the way and forces us to the floor. Brilliantly crafted synths create a rich tapestry of colourful sound that hypnotizes the mind in true deep house style. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Jun 2017 05

Veteran DJ and producer Tatsu aka Isaac Indart teams up with deep house guru Gaol and the hugely talented Portuguese DJ and producer Miss Dee for their debut slice – Brighter Days EP – on Piston Recordings. A master of good taste and a hunger for good grooves, Tatsu is currently the resident DJ at Garito Cafe which he has held for more than 10 years, he also plays at Puro Hotel & Puro Beach in Mallorca as well as several gigs around the world. Gaol represents an unmistakeable deep house style with minimalistic and electronic traits. He is highly influenced by the 90’s and to date he has released a plethora of cuts spanning several years. Miss Dee aka Dee Fonte is a music lover at heart, every set she plays is done so with emotion which emanates to the crowd. She started off in Hip Hop but soon found House music and this transition has made her a very flexible artist with a diverse musical mindset. A talented trio with a unique sound, we’re delighted to have them on board.

First up we have Chubbak which dishes out a solid deep house groove for the floors. Nice and chunky kick drums lead the way with a shuffling hat section delivering a flowing rhythm. A garage-esque bassline crops up moves effortlessly between the beats before a deep and warm chord pad fades in to take over. You’ll soon find yourself moving to the groove on this one, highly infectious and a must have.

The Original Mix of Brigther Days offers up a real nice slice of house music to get the booty’s shakin’. Punchy kicks and crispy hi hats provide a classic intro as cool bongo percussions join in creating a steady flowing rhythm. A smooth and groovy bassline sits nicely on the low end while rich pads and warm chords add to the house flavour. The breaks throws up very cool vocals that add character and club appeal to the track. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Spanish DJ and producer Hurlee returns after a bit of a hiatus from Piston with a superb remix on Brighter Days. He has been influenced by top DJ’s from across the world and he has plied his trade on the Balearic Islands for a number of years now. He has seen releases on many labels including Gimmick Records, Reisei Records, DeepInside and Deepart. Great to see him back. On the remix here Hurlee delivers a solid house joint filled with tight beats, rhythmic percussions and a superb bubbling bassline that will definitely get asses shaking. The bassline dominates and is joined by cool synth stabs alongside subtle acid lines and equally cool club driven vocals. Residing on the deeper end of the house music scale, this one is not to be missed.
