EAT DUST – HUSTLE EP
Aug 2017 29

Eat Dust aka Portuguese DJ and producer Mario Silva delivers his latest slice in the form of the two tracker Hustle EP. This one follows the fantastic Anomalia EP which came out in June 2017 and which gained some great support across the board. On the DJ circuit Mario enjoys playing gigs all over Portugal, particularly in the underground scene. He is a constant presence at Ramboya parties and a member of the collective LIVE Lisbon. His tracks are championed by many jocks around the world which is a testament to his unique style.

Hustle intros with a nice solid thumping kick drum with a subtle percussion background. The percs build to deliver a smooth rhythmic flow as a deep subby bassline rocks the low end. Eerie synth lines fade in an out alongside dark chord stabs and cool FX and an urban style vocal snippet. Lots going on here but it’s the percussions that really stand out, creating their own niche groove within the track, top notch stuff.

Over Me sets out with a cool pacey vibe as punchy kick drums line up alongside shuffling percussions. Sweeping pads and tech fuelled house chords paint a smooth textured picture as the groove settles in. On the low end a lush bassline dominates giving the track a dancefloor appeal. A dark and mysterious slice that will certainly turn a few heads.

Aug 2017 21

French house music duo DJ Entwan aka Antoine Maitre and Dan Corco join forces on their Piston Recordings debut with the fantastic Lala La EP. Antoine is well known for his night time transformations where he brings his brand of electronic music to the discerning clubber. His influences range from Vincenzo D’amico, Max Chapman, George Privatti, Mirco Caruso and Mauro Venti among others. His tracks have been rocking floors for almost 8 years and he enjoys the support of a plethora of top jocks. Dan is influenced by new wave and the new beat sound along with strong links to the Detroit movement. He started to produce around the year 2000 and his first tracks were quickly signed to the prestigious Rotation Records run by Dave Angel (UK) as well as Scandium Records (France). Musically he is very open, he produces various styles and takes great pleasure in mixing genres and trying to innovate his sound. His solid productions have gained him more and more DJ gigs in France and beyond. Delighted to have these guys on board.

Lala La is a solid house music slice that will definitely get the floors moving. Right from the off we’re lured into its groove as pumping beats are joined by a filtered synth and probing bassline. Cool vocals litter the sound adding character. Funkier elements start to creep into the groove that are sure to keep the asses shaking. Excellent stuff and a definite must have.

The early French house inspired Break Down intros with a nice powerful punchy kick drum alongside crispy hi hats that provide a dancey beat to get down to. A cool discofied funky bassline fades in which is joined by familiar guitar licks and pretty soon you will find yourself hooked on the groovy vibe on offer. The track oozes retro house and, aside from it being a dancefloor destroyer, will definitely get it a lot of attention for that. Not to be missed.
