Danny eM aka Daniel Martinetti debuts on Piston with the outstanding three track Shades Of Summer EP. Based in Lima, Peru Danny is influenced by Chicago House and New York Garage. He has released on Audionumb in Peru and on Form and Function in the UK. Support for his music comes from all over and we are delighted to have him on board.
First up we have the title track Shades Of Summer with is filtered intro that slowly forms into a warm and lush groovy joint. Nice big chunky kicks are joined with a classic styled percussion section that packs a smooth rhythm. A deep rising bass gives off a cool garage theme and deep piano notes keep the vibe firmly in the house arena. The track is topped of beautifully with some amazing gospel style vocal giving the track so much character, a definite must have here that will keep any party on the move.
Devotion intros with a sublime wavering synth and a smooth percussion line giving a laidback feel to the sound. A deep and droning bass comes through and dominates as the kicks get into their 4×4 groove. Tight drum arrangements dish out various patterns keeping a steady rhythm as the layers build. A distant vocal sample is the perfect addition here and works well with subtle synth licks which become a main feature. Deep dark and moody, perfect for late night ventures.
New Beginning sets off with a deep bassy vibe with subtle percussions sitting on top. Out of the blue a monster kick appears and takes full control of the sound as those droning basses continue in the background. Sinister sounding dark melodies ooze melancholy in a beautiful way and we are on course for a journey into the deeper side of house. Excellent stuff that will appeal to many for sure.

Miguel Reis is back at Piston with Boom Bam. His last release Classic Motherfucker Record was well received and landed a spot on Piston’s Ghetto Tales EP Volume 2.
Boom Bam intros with a super tight drum arrangement that provides a cool shuffling groove with the help of subtle percussion. A catchy vocal is very distinctive throughout and puts the track at the dancey side of the tracks. The groovy bass is a big feature and will no doubt shake the speakers at any club. AS the track evolves we are led into a world full of expertly tweaked FX and erotic vocal snippets that keep the sound firmly at the deeper end making this a definite must for the darker rooms out there.
Dancefloor sets off with a bass heavy sequence which is contrasted with bright tinkling percussions. Classic vocal samples filter through as sublime strings and melodic pianos clash. We are taken into the main track with a brilliant vocal sample that leads to a tough kick and deep bass combi with contrasting open hats. The groove builds as various percussive instruments get the rhythms flowing resulting in a very urban feeling sound. Superbly constructed piece that will turn a few heads for sure.
