MIKE MORALES – 606 STATE EP
Jul 2017 24

Mike Morales aka Mi Ke returns to Piston with another round of sublime deep house grooves. This one marks his thrid outing for us having previously scored great support with Come With Me EP back in April 2017 and his debut slice, 214 EP under his Mi Ke moniker. Mike is a force to be reckoned with on the house scene as he’s been around for quite some time. He is heavily influenced by Portugal’s infamous underground scene and his name began resonating amongst established DJ’s and artists. His debut track – Dream Shattered, premiered on Digweed’s Transitions radio show in 2003 and since then he has continued to churn out top quality vibes.

606 State gets moving with a distinctive, organically flavoured drum arrangement that coaxes you into its infectious rhythm. A powerfully deep and probing bassline comes through to dominate the groove as brighter chord stabs are introduced. A cool vocal rings out while groovy keys add an extra spice to the groove. Superb deep house sounds perfect for dancing well into the night.

So Special delivers a solid deep house groove that will definitely keep the floors buzzing. The track is powered by a tight drum arrangement featuring shuffling hi hats and percussions with a nice punchy kick drum as leader. A fantastic subby bass weaves its way through the groove as cool vocals come through. Warm deep house chords are joined by distinct clubby vocals that take the track to the next level and making it a definite must have.

Jul 2017 17

House music aficionados Discult Soundsystem debut on Piston Recordings with the superb three tracker Onket EP. Known for their super cool parties, their Let’s Discult open air livestreams and groovy sets, we’re delighted to have this talented group on Piston.

Onket settles into a deep tech house groove right from the off thanks to a solid drum arrangement and powerful chords. A wonderful bassline enters the fray as an intriguing spoken vocal delivers a narrative to create that deep groovy vibe. The drums and percussions make for a tight rhythmic display that will surely get the floors moving. As the groove powers on the chords become intensive as they get a more prominent stabby hit. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

IDTKNW intros with a classic kick drum and hi hat combi that is joined by the most beautiful Rhodes chords complete with a tasty tremolo on the tail end. A deep, probing bassline comes through to join the chords and create a wonderfully lush and deep groove. Cool vocals litter the track as we’re drawn ever deeper into its sublime vibe. Definitely one for those intimate late night sessions.

Basic Principles delivers an upbeat and upfront tech house groove complete with a raucous acid line that is gonna light up the floors no doubt. Well crafted drum patterns lead the way and provide a dancey rhythmic flow to the groove while surreal chords fill out the background. The bass mirrors the acid sequence to form a powerful bassline as interesting synth arps ease in at the midway point. Excellent stuff and a must have track in any tech fuelled set.

MOLINERO – MARTINI EP
Jul 2017 17

Leipzig, Germany based DJ and producer (Sebastian) Molinero comes to Piston Recordings with a superb deep house slice entitled Martini EP. Sebastian started to DJ at just 15 years old, by the time he was 17 he was getting his first club gigs playing house and techno. A couple of years later he secured his current residency at Kaffeehaus Le Club, Flensburg. In 2016 he started to get into producing his own music and he is carving out his own unique style where rhythm and groove are important as well as blending different genres. Both tracks here are dedicated to his friends and his hometown. A fine debut we think you’ll agree.

Deep house grooves abound in the garage fuelled Martini that will definitely get a run out in many sets. Powerful probing basses are the order of the day here and no doubt the subs are gonna love it. A groovy drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks and rhythmic percussions keeps the feet dancing while cool chord stabs fill out the high end. A distinct intensity is realised within the track which adds to the deep nature of the groove giving you the tools to command the floor.

Wenn Ich Gehe intros with a punchy kick and bright hi hat combi and the kicks bring the rhythm to life with their flavourful arrangement. A mesmeric chord pad fades in along with a beautifully lush sub level bass which fills out the track brilliantly. The break is a wonderful piece of arrangement, the pads are left alone, slowly fading in with a subtle voice in the background, both creating a surreal atmosphere before the drums return for the duration. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.
