Italian born and London based DJ and producer PulpTalks returns to Piston Recordings with the superb two tracker – Sugar Lips. We saw PulpTalks debut here back in the Summer of 2016 with Sand which gained good support all over. With a penchant for turning out some quality vibes and for igniting the party with his DJ sets, we’ve no doubt that this guy will just get better and better.
Sugar Lips is a smooth deep house groover with a steady flowing rhythmic vibe that is made up of punchy kick drums and slicing hi hats alongside intricate percussion patterns. The bassline and synths are where it’s at here, they both combine beautifully to deliver that solid deep house groove that is sure to get the bootys on the floors, a must have no doubt.
When She Smiles intros with a fantastic heavily filtered synth that morphs brilliantly alongside a deep slow vocal. Big chunky kick drums come through and we’re taken on a deep and groovy trek filled with crispy hi hats and those excellent synths. A superb rumbling bassline sits on the low end shoring up the track and giving it a cool edge. On the break the synths are let loose before the filters kick back in leaving us wanting more. This one will definitely be a welcome addition in any late night set.
Japanese DJ and producer Ryo Kinjo aka Ryo-Chin debuts on Piston Recordings with the deep and luscious two tracker Chandan. Ryo’s music career started in 2000 as a DJ in clubs in Okinawa. In 2004 he started to produce his own sounds and he soon found his music appearing on various compilations. After releasing on a few labels he signed with Soulstar Records in 2015 where the bulk of his work resides. Since then he has topped many charts and playlists across the world. We’re delighted to have him on board at Piston.
Chandan delivers a solid deep house groove with fantastic live sounding drums and percussions bringing an authentic vibe. A nice and big chunky kick drum is also at play here adding some warmth alongside smooth chords and a lush bottom end. Cool synths add wonderful textures to the sound while giving off a funky vibe. The deep probing bassline keeps the track moving nicely making this a definite must have.
Roughing Mood is beautifully crafted slice of deep house that has a very cool unique vibe made up of warm analogue sounds and a very distinctive classic vocal sample. A tight drum and percussion section provides a nice flowing steady rhythmic vibe as the deep probing bassline weaves through the track. Warm chords wash over the sound as the classic vocal is met with a very cool diva-esque snippet. Top notch stuff that will be a dancefloor filler for sure.
Thule & Hassio (COL) join forces to deliver their Piston Recordings debut – Room Advices EP. Thule is made up of Romanian artists Iulian Arbanas and Alexandru Voicu. The guys launched Thule in 2014 and have generated a lot of interest with their strong bassline approach giving them a unique characteristic. They also drew the attention of many labels over the last few years and are shaping up to be a major force on the scene. Medellin based Hassio aka Daniel Messa returns to Piston for his full debut after his remix for Dennis Franchi featuring Angelo Dobric – Into Place, back in June 2016. He has amassed a hugely impressive release count over the last few years and has appeared on many top labels during this time. He is also a hard working DJ, playing out at many gigs around his home country and beyond. Daniel also runs events for UnderGrooveNation.
Some Advices intros with a nice upbeat techy kinda drum arrangement that will get the floors moving no doubt. A deep pulsing bass delivers a healthy dose of low end as the shuffling rhythm intensifies. Distant synths melt into the arrangement which takes us to the break where a very cool vocal comes through before we are built back up and into full on mode. Superb stuff not to be missed.
Vozic Room offers a nice and smooth tech house vibe that carries a deep flavour. Chunky kick drums lead the way with crispy offset hi hats creating a rhythmic flow. Short chord stabs fade in and out as a real deep low end bass weaves through the sound. The track gives off a cool dancey vibe with a laidback kinda groove that will definitely get booty’s shakin on the floors.
The Indian is a deep hypnotic slice of tech house. Chunky kicks and bright crispy hi hats provide the intro alongside some cool synths and eerie background pads. The bass rises stealthily through the sound becoming infectious throughout. On the break we are faced with a surreal sequence made up of those eerie pads and a mesmerizing Ethnic style male vocal that adds so much character to the sound. Top notch stuff.
