Augusto Gagliardi debuts here at Piston Recordings with the sublime Smoothie EP. Argentinean DJ and producer Augusto got into music from a young age. At just 13, his Father encouraged him to take his skills to clubs around La Quinta and Aquabarra. It was here that he nurtured the skillset needed that would take him around the world, playing top venues in several countries. His sets are composed of tech sounds, synths and percussions, with variations of deep, techno and progressive. In recent times, he shared the booth with Mariano Trocca, Lolu Menayed, Manu Desrets and Matías Sundblad among others. Currently, in addition to nightclubs, he has a monthly show on Radio Beat Club and throws private parties in Nordelta. Since 2015 he has been producing quality tracks that have gained massive support from labels and fellow jocks. Great to have him here and we hope to see more in the future.
Smoothie lives up to its name with a real smooth, deep and lush groove, setting the mood for sublime journey. The intro teases with softened kicks and a single note before the kicks get a nice thump alongside a rumbling bassline. Rich chords weave through the groove, layering up into a cool melodic flow. The break focuses on the chords with some interesting background ambience adding great effect. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.
Order To Disorder is a superb melodious deep house cut that will help wash away the grit of the day with its warming allure. Tight beats get the rhythm moving as super low-end basses go to work shuddering the foundations. Swirling pads and distant voices add character while mesmerizing notes cascaded through the groove. An intriguing slice that is not to be missed.
