Mario Silva aka Eat Dust returns to Piston Recordings with his tenth offering entitled Cachofarra EP. Mario always serves up a real treat with everything he produces. This time he delves into tech house with two tracks that will most definitely represent his superb talents. Previous outing here have proven very popular thanks to high chartings and numerous playlistings.
Cachofarra intros with a solid 909 kick alongside a bright and crispy slicing hi hat. Cool percussions layer up creating a tight rhythmic vibe while curious FX deliver an experimental sound. A deep sub level bass comes through giving the track great depth and a raw organic feel. The mish mash of sounds combine perfectly making this an absolute belter of a track that will get the tech party flowing for sure.
Word On The Hood delivers a superb tech house groove filled with warm beats and shuffling hi hats alongside cool percussions. The bassline draws you in with its powerful low end gait while subtle chord strikes face off against surreal FX and mysterious pads. Throughout the track superb spoken vocals bring an urban vibe to the sound and on the break ambient vocals set against a street soundscape take the track to the next level before we are thrust back into the main groove. A definite contender for peak time sets, not to be missed.
Portuguese artist LUS debuts on Piston Recordings with the fantastic The Most Famous Classic EP. Since 2016 LUS has been churning out serious beats on various labels. Known for his deep house grooves, LUS is already a name synonymous with quality and we’ve no doubt this will continue for a long time. Delighted to have him at Piston.
The Most Famous Classic takes us down the rabbit hole of deep house thanks to some wonderfully crafted sounds and a dosing of ultra smooth groovy vibes. A solid drum arrangement keeps the track moving nicely as deep muddy basses lurk on the low end. Perfectly tweaked chords blend effortlessly into the sound alongside cool vocals and on the break that applauding audience fits brilliantly into the groove. Lots of funky elements fill the track making this an absolute must have for the late night session.
It’s The Kiss intros with a tight punchy kick drum and surreal pads before shuffling hi hats give the rhythm a boost. A superb bassline mesmerizes as it cascades up and down the notes alongside a deeper, reverberating bass on the low end. A short break reveals a fantastic indie style vocal before the kicks return. Softer, more melodic keys break out of the murk before dissipating to let a wonderful analogue style bass take control. Brilliant stuff that will not disappoint.
Paris, France based artist Meda debuts on Piston Recordings with his Inside EP. Meda is involved in many projects around electronic music. Management of labels and organization of evenings rub shoulders with the musical production within several projects as well as his first passion, DJing. Musical and dynamic, his mixes allowed him to open the doors to famous clubs and evenings in France and abroad. Rex club, Batofar, Cocobeach, Red Villa, Electromind and Big Banf are just some of the parties he’s played. He’s been a producer since late 2011 and has collaborated with many artists such as Ian Pooley, Robert Armani, Johannes Heil, Antony Shake Skakir, Justin Berkovi and Kolombo with his tracks getting great support from big names on the world stage like Laurent Garnier, Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, Dave Clarke, Monika Kruse and Steve Bug to name just a few. Great to have him on board at Piston.
Inside takes us on a sublime journey into deep house with some fine, expertly crafted sounds. Punchy kick drums and shuffling hi hats lead the way as a deep, low end bass lurks providing a solid platform for the groove. Cool chords and vocal snippets are front and centre, adding that deep house touch which will definitely get the booty’s shakin’ on the floors. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.
Barreled Up intros with some very nice chords and shuffling percussions alongside a cool clubby vocal and twanging guitar riff. Punchy kicks come through to get us moving while extra layers are piled on including a funky guitar lick. To cap it all off we get the funkiest bassline that ramps up the groove to ass shakin’ levels. Definitely one for the peak time moments here, not to be missed.
