Piston Recordings
May 2014 26

Italian DJ and producer Ivan Masa debuts on Piston with this wonderful two tracker ‘Don’t Stop The Groove Man’. Ivan recently released his old school inspired ‘From London’ on Eyepatch gaining much praise for a stunning piece of work.

First up we get ‘Don’t Stop The Groove Man’ which intros with a nice and smooth percussion arrangement before the chunky kicks and cool deep stabs come through. A brilliantly lush groovy bass pops up and totally dominates the sound to the backdrop of a pure House pad that sweeps through the sound. Very cool classic vocal samples get a show and soon the funk factor rises as the sounds evolve. Very dynamic sounding track and one that will be a must for any box.

‘Caramel And Chocolate’ sets off with a funky rhythm made up of cool hats and a groovy synth note. The bass come through beautifully and ramps up the groove big time as vocal samples begin to shine all over the track. The break showcases the power of the funky groove as the synth takes over with a high note oscillating in the background. Fantastic structure on this track as the bass transforms perfectly with the sound and the vocal popping up at the right places.

Top notch stuff yet again from Ivan, not to be missed.

Italian DJ and producer marks his Piston debut with a stunning EP entitled ‘Diggin Time’. Davide has a hugely impressive release list among many top labels and he has worked with some of the best producers around. Davide is also an active DJ playing festivals and radio shows around Europe.

First up we have the Original Mix of ‘Diggin Records’ which intros with a chunky kick and cool percussions that slowly build to a smooth groove as swaying pads sound off in the background. The bass begins its journey and soon evolves into a monster with a vibration that runs deep and will shudder any bass bin it touches. A real cool feature on the track is the vocal that comes to prominence on the break and which sits in contrast with the darker vibe as it brings a freshness to the sound. Top class stuff and a must for any box.

Xander & Niederreiter are Austrian duo Xander Kassian and Niederreiter Markus and they also debut on Piston with their remix on ‘Diggin Records’ and what an effort these guys put in. Big and brash kicks coupled with a nice and crisp hat make for a solid start to the track. The in your face bass starts early as it bubbles up from below before the track suddenly breaks and the tweaked original vocal bursts to life before slamming back into the main track. The bass has transformed beautifully as it almost growls its way through the sound. A real floor shaker here that is not to be missed.

Rounding off this EP we have the superb track ‘Time’. Getting off to a pumping start with a wonderful phat kick and crispy hat combi with the bass joining the party early on. The bass has a darkly sinister vibe that works so beautifully with the synth chords and the equally dark vocal samples. The break is dominated the brilliantly crafted chords that etch out a real cool groove along with the vocal. The track kicks back in with ass shakin power making this a track that you will definitely want in your playlist!
