MIRKO GORELLI & PIERPAOLO PIEROTTI – BASSONE UK
May 2017 15

Italian DJ and producer Mirko Gorelli is back at Piston and is joined by fellow country-man, DJ and producer Pierpaolo Pierotti on the superb Bassone UK which is backed with Pump Up The Bass. Mirko’s last outing was back in 2016 with Travel which proved popular among many. Delighted to see him back at Piston as we just love what this guy does with music. Pierpaolo Pierotti spent his adolescence listening to house music between clubs and music cassettes. His journey begins as P.R. and event organizer leading him to work with some of the best Italian clubs including Aqva Discovillage Numana, ECU Rimini, Syncopate and Prince Riccione.

Bassone UK intros with cool classic style pumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi. Sharp claps and sporadic snares add movement to the rhythm getting us right into dancefloor mode. A prominent deep throbbing bassline comes through to dominate the groove before the track breaks to reveal remnants of oldskool drum and bass sounds. The synths are simply outstanding here and they capture the essence of house music in tech format. A top notch slice that is not to be missed.

Pump The Bass is the perfect title for this one, right from the off you know the bass is gonna get pumped as a tight drum section takes us up to a short break before the inevitable bass pumping begins. The track is elevated to classic status instantly thanks to the use of a much loved acapella from 1988 that fits so perfectly into this contemporary groove, gimme a phat beat, anyone. Swelling chords accompany the vocal adding richness to the sound making this an absolute must have track for any party set.

MIKE MORALES – COME WITH ME EP
May 2017 15

Mike Morales returns to Piston Recordings with the superb Come With Me EP. We last saw Mike under his Mi Ke moniker back in 2016 with his 214 EP which performed very well indeed and no doubt this latest effort will follow suit. 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.

Come With Me is a full on club driven monster with chunky beats and an outstandingly simple yet highly effective diva-esque vocal. Tight drums lead a flowing rhythm while a meandering bass weaves through the track to the backdrop of that superb wailing vocal that will definitely get booty’s on the floor. Warm chords litter the sound bringing in a richer vibe as various vocal snippets ring out. A wonderfully crafted slice that will not disappoint.

Dub With Me strips out most of the vocal with just a few select phrases thrown in to keep that club vibe alive. A powerful groove on this one that will hit the floors for sure.

Bumble-B intros with slicing hi hat patterns and a pumping kick drum before a deep rumbling bass joins in and gets the body moving. Soft melodies come through and cascade effortlessly through the sound, contrasting perfectly against the deeper elements of the groove. Short vocal snippets give the track an energetic vibe making this a straight up house stomper.

SMOKIN US – LOVE U
May 2017 08

Smokin Us aka Italy based artist Kenneth Nshuti debuts on Piston Recordings with Love U – a delicious two tracker that delivers a solid slice of house music for our aural pleasure. Over the last couple of years this guy has been churning out quality cuts on several labels and, he commands a lot of attention for his delivery of sound that always generates a positive vibe. Delighted to have him on board.

Love U goes straight for the dance floors with a muted kick on the intro that soon gets beefed up with some pounding kick drum action. The vibe of the track is set out early on as the mesmerizing vocal narrative takes hold. Well rounded deep bassy tones are the mainstay of the groove and the reason the floors will be rocking, with a little help from a solid rhythmic percussion section of course. Excellent stuff you do not want to miss.

Get The Fuck Out is another serious contender to get the floors moving and the party rocking. Pumping kick drums lead the way alongside a superb rhythmic percussion arrangement. Cool vocals litter the sound giving off a club vibe as a deep rumbling bassline works its magic on the low end. The track intensifies on the break as rattling snares create a climactic build up alongside noisy synths and those sharp vocals which takes us back into full on mode for the duration. A definite must have no doubt.
