We welcome French artist Evenn to Piston Recordings with his superb debut, Pacific Ave EP. Even is a name already associated with quality music. He’s had his very first full release in 2018 on Henry Street Music which was quickly followed by another gem just a few months later. For 2020, he’s lined up a few more releases on various labels and he’s beginning to cause quite a stir, gaining a lot of attention. We’re excited to have him on board at Piston and we hope to hear more from him in the future.
Pacific Ave opens with a warm, phasing pad, with smooth note changes, setting the mood for a deep and groovy ride. Nice chunky kicks and sharp hats come through as rhythmic percussions layer up. A deep, plucked bass opens up the low end beautifully as a creative synth line gest moving, competing with an array of keys that ooze deep house flavour. A solid cut that is not to be missed.
Ease Back is up next, taking us straight to the floor with a pacey beat that sets up a smooth rhythm alongside intricate percussion patterns. A sweeping, fluid synth mesmerizes as a deep, probing bassline shores up the low end. Cool vocal shots reside in the distance, adding that classic club touch to the sound and making this one an absolute must have to get the party started.
Timeless intros with a solid, thumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combo. A filtered pad fades in, revealing a warm, phased sequence which is backed up with deep rumbling basses. The groove captivates, hypnotic and dancefloor friendly, the tight beats will definitely get the toes tapping. A superb slice that will be a welcome addition in any set.

UK based DJ, producer Burton, debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb four track EP titled City Streets. Quite the mystery character, Burton is a young up-and-coming artist with a passion for music, he’s already seen a couple of releases hit the download stores. He dabbles in several genres, but here, he delights with some smooth, urbanised deep house grooves. Great to have him on board at Piston and we hope to see more from him soon, definitely one to watch.
City Streets sets off with a nice upbeat rhythm, complete with punchy kicks, crispy hats and a retro themed muted piano chord. A bouncy bass gets the booty shakin’ as the filters open on the chords, revealing the piano riff in all its glory to the backdrop of a classic hi string. A mesmerizing slice with a stand out club vibe that will rock the dancefloor no doubt.
Back And Forth is a straight up floor destroyer for the dancing crew to get down to. Solid beats and a rhythmic percussion arrangement set the pace as a plucky bassline lights the groove up. Filtered synths fade up before opening into a hypnotic riff that dominates the sound beautifully. The synths fade off leaving the drums and bass before being joined by some lush piano goodness. A definite old skool vibe is felt off this one, making it the perfect fodder for the livelier floors.
Main Geezer is a wonderfully crafted slice of deep house with a classic flavour. Chunky beats and shuffling hats lead the way as groovy keys fade up alongside mesmerizing pads. An authenticity is prevalent thanks to a crackling vinyl style effect, giving the track character. Again, we see influences of the good old days in the form of the deep probing bassline and piano chords, working together in perfect sync. An absolute gem of a track that will not disappoint.
Passive Thoughts opens with a classic bouncy bassline and rhythmic drum arrangement. Chord stabs ebb and flow to the backdrop of an ambient crowd which can just be heard enough to create a live feel. The chords are treated to various effects, sending them moving all through the track as cool vocals come through alongside swirling pads. The attention to detail is evident thanks to subtle authentic touches that make this a must have for sure.
