Spanish DJ, producer Mianyo returns to Piston with the superb Hurt My Eyes which features a fantastic vocal from J. Burnside and a host of solid remixes. Last time out, we were treated to the smooth vibes of his Breaking Bytes which was very well received. This one is his third release for us and, since 2014 he’s been an active producer for many other labels. He has seen releases on labels like Musex Industries and Azari Records. His tracks have been remixed by Oraa and Peter Ryan and he has turned his own hand to remixing other artists also. Great to have him back for more at Piston.
The Original Mix is a smooth, deep and mellow slice with nice drums and a groovy, infectious bassline. Sweeping chords add texture and colour to the sound, taking us deeper and deeper. The dry, intriguing vocal from J. Burnside gives the track a distinct, organic flavour and really locks you in to the narrative. Perfect fodder for the late-night sessions.
David Garcia aka Deephope is up first on remix duties. David is a DJ, producer who has released his music around the world on various labels where he shows his experience and it’s a pleasure to have him here at Piston. On the remix here, David opts for a straight-to-the-floor groove as tight drums are joined by crispy, shuffling hi hats, creating a solid rhythmic flow. A deep, powerful bassline rocks the low end while hypnotic keys draw us in. The vocal stands out beautifully, making this a definite must have.
GarcyNoise aka Ruben Garcia returns to Piston with a solid remix which is also backed up with an instrumental version. Last time out for Ruben was back in 2014 with his The Colour Of Your Heart. He set up his own label Justified Cause Recordings which has spawned a whole host of top talent and led to the formation of a sub label, Justified Entertainment which itself has a very impressive roster. Here, Ruben delivers a strong, dancefloor friendly slice filled with chunky beats and bright rhythm fuelled hats and percussions. The big focus lies in the intricate drum patterns and attention to detail in the keys that bring out a smooth garage vibe. The vocal adds weight to the groove, but if you’re only interested in the music, then we’ve included a vocal free, GarcyNoise Instrumental Remix.
Jules Heller aka Julio Guillen marks his Piston Recordings debut with his Closing Remix. A relative newcomer, Julio is fast gaining a solid reputation on the scene. He is also part of Elementsof and has enjoyed releases on several labels. We’re excited to have him on board. The perfect way to round up this solid release. Julio brings us deep down into the groove with slow-burner that will grab a lot of attention. Sub-level basses are joined by smooth, loungy beats. Rich keys strike a funky note as the vocal is eased into the track. An absolute must have for those lazy, chilled out sessions.
