AITOR ASTIZ – DO IT AGAIN
Sep 2017 04

Spanish DJ and producer Aitor Astiz debuts on Piston with the fantastic two track release entitled Do It Again. He got into music at the age of 6 and later he discovered electronica. Inspired by house music his productions delve into the old skool sound. With several quality releases under his belt already, you can be sure you’ll be seeing a lot more from this guy in the future.

Do It Again opens with a distinctive breaks pattern followed by a thumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi to get the floors moving. A short pause unleashes a retro style siren before a superb, deep probing bassline takes over. The bassline is complimented by cool stabs that bring the funk to the sound. On the main break a wailing diva belts out a solid club vocal which becomes highly infectious. Top notch stuff and a definite must have.

Believe In delivers a solid house cut complete with a tight drum section that is driven by a powerful kick drum and snappy snares. A deep rolling bassline lurks on the beat leaving a subby trail in its wake. Quirky synths add a surreal layer to the track while diva vocals ring out alongside cool one shots that beef up the groove nicely. A fine slice that will keep the floors rocking.

JUANMA LLOPIS – SOWILO
Sep 2017 04

Spanish DJ and producer Juanma Llopis returns to Piston after a bit of a hiatus with the excellent Sowilo. We last caught a glimpse of this guy’s work here back in 2015 with Going Insane which was very well received indeed. Juanma is a lover of music and is able to turn his hand to various genres, but Deep House is where he mostly resides. His DJing has taken him all over Spain and he has appeared on labels like, Joyfull Family Records, Sound Mass Records and Vandalism Musique.

Sowilo takes us into the depths of house music thanks to the deep and warm sounds oozing out of the groove. A tight drum section led by a chunky kick drum keeps the feet moving while deep basses provide that warming feeling. Quirky synth shots blend effortlessly with intricate percussion patterns that create a beautifully textured sound. The contrast between the deeper sounds and brighter melodies is what gives this track its edge, definitely one for the floors here.

Faker intros with a solid punchy kick drum which is soon joined by crispy hats and rhythmic percussions. Deep chords fade in giving the track a rich vibe while a deep probing bassline keeps the groove locked in. Various sounds layer up creating a complex tapestry of rhythms that are perfectly aligned for maximum impact. A solid cut that will not disappoint.

MATTIAS COLL – YOU EP
Aug 2017 29

Mattias Coll debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb You EP. Mattias got into electronic music at the beginning of 2008 exploring programs like Traktor and music production DAW’s such as Ableton Live, learning how to use these tools without specialised courses. He threw himself into music production, listening to the likes of DJ Chus and David Penn, this put him on the path to house music where he toys with multiple sub genres to find the best sound. Delighted to have him at Piston and we hope to see more soon.

You intros with a classic punchy kick drum, sharp hi hat and clap combi which is sure to get the booty’s moving towards the floors. As the percussion layers build a superb, deep probing bassline emerges to dominate the groove and really get the asses shakin. Cool voices litter the sound as darker elements begin to appear. Subtle chords add that pure house vibe which works beautifully with the dark sound. An absolute must have that will give any set a boost.

Return delivers a tight house joint made up of solid, tight drums and some very cool FX that add colourful textures to the sound. The bassline owns the low end with its powerful, resonating tones that are matched brilliantly with cool diva-esque vocal shots. The groove is beefed up by top notch chord stabs that lull you in and force you to move to the soulful vibe. Fantastic stuff that will not disappoint.
