Purveyor of funky grooves and deep vibes, Ollie S. debuts on Piston with the fantastic Wellness EP. Ollie has been positively influenced by his father as a funk bass player, his excitement for different music genres including Funk, Jazz & Disco, has been prominent since his childhood. As a teenager he bought a set of turntables and started with Turntablism just for fun. A few years later his excitement for Dance Music and DJing has grown and now he wants to get into producing. He started producing Minimal Techno before moving through other styles to House music where his originality shines. Marked by deep and clear bass lines, driving drums and colourful accents, his productions are meant to be listened to everywhere, no matter whether it is in the bathroom or on the dance floor. Delighted to have him on board.
First up we have the title track – Wellness, which delivers a smooth deep house groove full of warmth and intrigue. A tight drum arrangement gets the rhythm moving nicely before a short break brings in warming chords and swirling pads. The beat comes back with a dancey bassline in tow, forcing us to move with its infectious groove. The main break reveals cool club vocals and more of those mesmeric pads and chords before we head back into full on mode for the duration. Excellent stuff that will not disappoint.
Flash dishes out a tight deep house groove filled with deep chords and a solid probing bassline. A beautifully arranged drum section get the feet tapping as short funky riffs peek out. The bassline captivates and hypnotizes as it weaves through the sound alongside those warm chords. The break adds in distant vocals as a surreal sequence takes hold up to the returning beats and back into full swing. A definite must for the early morning after party or the main event.

This guy just keeps on hooking us up with some top notch quality vibes. This time he delivers his Future EP which comes hot on the heels of his last outing – Cosmic Waves EP. Ivo has notched up quite an impressive back catalogue in the last 5 years and his music has found its way onto several top labels and, this latest effort marks his third here at Piston. Always a pleasure getting his new works through the inbox.
Future delivers a solid tech house joint that will get feet on the floors thanks to its powerful presence. Right from the off we’re drawn to the sound as a nice punchy kick drum leads the way followed by rhythmic drums and percussions. A playful bassline cuts a smooth groove through the sound while various instruments lay down short riffs. Mesmeric and hypnotic, a must have for sure.
Now intros with a thick, punchy kick drum and tribal fuelled percussions. Sharp, crispy hi hats slice through the low frequencies as the rhythm gathers pace. A deep rumbling bassline comes through to take control of the groove while dark synths play out a surreal sequence. Definitely one for the later sessions that is not to be missed.
