Spanish DJ and producer Juanma is back with this four tracker entitled Baila EP. His last outing Kamatharu was his debut and performed very well indeed hitting download portals and playlists alike.
Baila intros with a cool percussive arrangement that is soon joined by a big chunky kick and throbbing bassline. Latin inspired chants bring a worldly character to the sound as well as some very cool vocal samples. The track keeps us locked in with its infectious grooves and on the break the bassline produces some cool note changes before getting right back into the main sound. A strong and solid groover that will get asses shakin all over.
Mystic Motion is up next and gives off a smooth mellow vibe from the intro. Thick chunky kicks and crisp hats are joined by distant wispy pads that bring cool melodic flavours. The first break enhances those pads with a contrasting deep toned vocal sample taking us out and into a lush laidback groove. The bassline has a perfectly balanced vibe as it dances up and down the musical scale creating a solid rhythmic groove. The main break adds more melodic flavours to those pads with the vocal samples remaining prominent. Super smooth and the perfect tonic for the late hours.
Next up we have Lust 112 which intros with a super tight drum arrangement complete with chunky kicks and crispy hats to get the rhythms on the move. A wonderfully deep bass takes over the low end as it throbs through the sound to the backdrop of a mixture of cool vocal snippets. The track takes on a sexy vibe with subtle erotic vocals coming through as the bass delivers its powerful groove. Definitely one for the deep dark late night party sessions.
Move On rounds up this superb EP and keeps the vibe alive with a cool rhythmic intro filled with sharp crispy hats and snappy drums. Punchy kicks soon follow and are joined by a powerful pulsating bassline that hits the spot with a punch. A wonderful smooth jazzy vocal becomes the main feature and sits in the sound perfectly. A real groovy mover here that will be a big hit on the floors for sure.

Leiden based duo Formel aka Tom Noah and Bas Van Der Laken debut on Piston with the superb The Magnificent Kaleidoscopa EP. The guys had met in strange circumstances, they were fighting over a bottle of Vodka backstage at a gig and from that they formed Formel. Since then they have forged a strong partnership and blended their respective styles, Bas having the more progressive sound and Tom having a more tech house style. They debuted in 2013 on Bla Bla Records and have played at top gigs and events across Europe. Well worth keeping an eye on this formidable pair.
We kick off this superb EP with the title track, The Magnificent Kaleidoscopa. The intro eases in with some cool percussions that have a hint of tribalism attached. A perfectly balanced thumping kick soon takes over with a super sweet pad and sultry vocal sitting in the background. The bassline is a wonderfully rich, full sound that warms the track beautifully as smooth synths add a colourful texture. A very smooth and upbeat slice that will be a feature in many sets for sure.
Popayan intros with a subtle percussion with distant melodic phrases fading in from the back. A strong punchy kick gets the track really moving with the help of crispy sharp hats and some brilliant FX. The bassline takes the sound that little bit further with its deep resonating pulses. Very smooth and groovy offering with beautifully layered sounds, top notch.
Prince Rupert sets off with a cool punchy kick as the percussions begin to form up to bring a steady, flowing rhythm. Lush chords bring a wonderful deep house groove to the sound which are filled with melodic flavours. The bassline brings a tough edge to the track which contrasts perfectly with much more upbeat main sound. The break reveals smooth pads that ebb and flow beautifully leading to some cool synth work before getting right back into the main groove for the duration, classy stuff that is not to be missed.
