Matteo Cabassi & Luky debut on Piston with the deep and dancey two tracker, Throwback. Italian DJ and producer Matteo is a lover of vinyl and has released tracks on various labels such as Circle Music, Ritual, Fontek, Hustler Music, Infinity Label and Music Things. Support for his music has come from some of the top names on the scene including Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Alex Flatner, Sis, Danny Tenaglia, Marco Corola and more. Italian DJ and producer Luky aka Luca Grasselli has seen his work on many top labels over the years including Spaceland Records, Infinity Label, Antura Records and Recovery Tech. He has lots of collabs under his belt and his music is supported worldwide. Great to see these guys on board the Piston train.
Throwback intros with a superb big beat themed drum arrangement that provides a cool shuffling groove before a fantastic chunky kick comes in and takes the groove firmly into the realms of house music. The bassline pulsates right through the track and gets the groove moving as a myriad of percussions let the rhythms loose. On the break a haunting, swirling synth builds creating a colourful texture to the sound as cool spoken vocals hit out. A seriously energising masterclass in drum arrangement that will definitely have floors shakin.
Cigarettes & Joint sets off with a cool snappy snare and rising bass tone to the backdrop of hushed voices. A nice big punchy kick comes in and is joined by a throbbing, deep bass that dominates the sound. Various drum layers are added and a shuffling rhythmic groove is born that will have the hips gyrating in time. Cool spoken vocals litter the sound alongside short, one shot guitars and synth stabs that add character to the groove. A proper deep and driving slice of tech that will not disappoint.

Spanish DJ and producer Juanma Llopis serves up another deep treat with Going Insane. Last time out he delivered the goods in style with his Baila! EP which gained fantastic support from many quarters.
Going Insane intros with a smooth upbeat kinda vibe as nice phat beats are joined by some bright keys and cool risers. Expertly crafted basses clutter together beautifully to deliver an intricate pattern that seals up a proper solid groove. The vocals complete this track perfectly with their raspy, harmonic house flavours. Cool melodies flow throughout and create wonderful textures that allows you to fully immerse into the sound. Sublime stuff from Juanma that will turn a few heads for sure.
Walk With Me intros with sharp hats and a very cool drum arrangement that builds up a solid rhythmic structure. Nice and chunky kicks are joined by a warm probing offset bass that controls the groove beautifully. The drums continue layer up and result in a complex web of patterns that work so perfectly together to the backdrop of a myriad of vocal shots. Subtle chords and rich strings reveal the true deep house vibes of the track as a superb female vocal brings a sultry cabaret style to the sound. Another excellent cut that will see a lot of playtime no doubt.
