Italian DJ and producer Francesco Tegazzin aka Distilled Noise debuts on Piston Recordings with his Solid Roots EP. Growing up in and around Verona, Francesco found electronic music which he used to express his musical creativity. His roots lie in Blues and Rock n Roll and he uses these influences alongside vintage samples while shaping his own unique groove. We’re glad to have this young up and coming artist on the roster and we hope to see more in the future.
Mr. Please Please Please shows off Francesco’s use of the vintage sound with perfectly placed FX and some very cool vocal samples. The intro boasts a bass free kick drum that is soon joined by layers of percussions that deliver a solid rhythmic groove. The kicks get beefed up and lead us straight to the floor while a lazy bassline meanders through the sound effortlessly. Cool pianos and various other sounds combine beautifully to fill the track out and make it a definite must have for the groovier parties.
Up next we have a track that not only has a cool title but is also a seriously eclectic slice of house music. Walking On The Moog is a wonderful display of multi layered grooves with a nice jazzy rhythmic vibe. A tight drum arrangement carries the track along at a steady pace as a myriad of colourful sounds create rich textured grooves. This one goes all out for the funk factor with some tasty riffs thrown in alongside various vocals. A top notch sliced that will not disappoint.
Fresh off the back of his Egret EP, Marco Madia returns with another tantalising cut, this time around he delivers the fantastic two tracker Toucan EP. Marco is a solid, dedicated artist who always dishes out quality sounds. He’s considered with very high regard among his peers and his music is a testament to this. Never one to disappoint, we just know you’re gonna love this latest cut.
Channel-Billed intros with a nice chunky kick drum and crispy offset hi hat that generates a cool steady beat. A deep rumbling bassline soon joins in and we find ourselves locked on to a solid deep house groove filled with warm keys and hypnotic sequences. The track layers up beautifully creating moody textures that will keep the floors moving with ease. A top notch slice that is not to be missed.
Keel-Billed sets out with a very interesting percussion pattern that sets the track up with a cool rhythmic flow. A combination of drums sit tightly packed in the groove and serve as a solid platform for the track. Trippy arpeggio synths bellow out their mesmeric sequences as a subtle bassline sits on the low end. On the break those synths come to life and dish out colourful patterns that blend effortlessly with the deep groove. A definite must have for sure.

A cool house vibe full of distant voices and rich high strings prevails while a deep rumbling bassline shores up the low end. The track manages to muster up a seriously groovy workout with a minimal approach, a top class effort and one that is not to be missed.
