DJ and producer Gregore Konstantine is back at Piston Recordings with the fantastic Stop Me EP. This one follows his debut from early 2018 with Street Jam EP and no doubt we’re in for another tasty treat. Hailing from Switzerland, he started to mix in 1996 playing Hip Hop, Soul and RnB. After 12 years playing in different clubs, he decided to change his musical orientation. In 2008 he got into House from Chicago and Techno from Detroit and he hasn’t looked back since. He has graced the decks at various clubs including Mytic, Khaos Club, L’apart, Zanzi Bar, Sea, Soccer & Sun, Le Klow and he has been releasing quality sounds since 2014.
We get a dosing of tech house from Stop Me, although one thing is for sure, this track will not stop you dancing. Right from the intro we’re locked in. Nice chunky beats are layered with a deep bassline that weaves through the groove effortlessly creating a strong tech vibe. Cool vocals are scattered throughout with a more hypnotic vocal found lurking. The drum section gets the rhythm flowing while short stabby chords add a little extra flavour. A definite mover here that is not to be missed.
Give Me One intros with a solid beat alongside a shuffling percussion arrangement. A few bars in we are introduced to a wonderful, deep rolling bassline that gets the dancing juices excited. A classic style vocal comes in adding a nostalgic vibe to a tight tech joint. A beautifully crafted slice here that delivers a hypnotic groove making it the perfect fodder for the peak time set, no doubt.

Andy Bach joins us at Piston Recordings with a superb debut slice titled Ibiza Sunset. Prolific DJ and producer Andy started to showcase his skills back in 1995 when he started to DJ in different clubs around Europe.

This one will keep the party rocking, not to be missed.
Juanma Llopis returns to Piston, this time he is on remix duties delivering a fine rendition of Ibiza Sunset. Spanish artist Juanma is heavily influenced by house music, tech house and chill out among other genres. He started out in 1999 but it wasn’t until 2013 when he began to produce his own sounds and, to date he has released on several top labels with great support. His last outing here was back in the Summer of 2017 with Sowilo and we’re happy to see him back again. On the remix here the beat comes in with a nice thump alongside a bright hi hat and mutes chords that rise up to dominate the groove. A deep probing bassline rocks the low end while the drum section layers up. Funky guitar licks come through accompanied by smooth piano keys. A bouncy number for the floors and a must have no doubt.
Istanbul, Turkey based artist Sinan Kaya debuts on Piston with a fine remix to make an instant impression that will definitely last. Sinan loves to create unique sounds, providing a vision for life. Over the years his works have appeared on many labels and he always enjoys great support. A welcome addition to the Piston roster. The remix delivers a sublime piece of deep house music with a rich dusting of quality sounds. Rhythmic drums with a hint of tribal share the spectrum with hypnotic basses, lush chords and brass stabs alongside dancing keys which all make for a good time on the floor. Throw in some extra spicy club sounds and you’ve got a track that will always deliver.
The Dub Mix offers up a surreal alternative take on the original. A much deeper groove is evident with the dubby bassline creating just the right vibe. The main hook gets a filtered makeover creating a highly infectious sequence. One for the late night sets that will not disappoint.
On the Rhodes Mix we’re treated to the same fresh baked groove as the original but with an added sprinkling of magical keys. It’s easy to get lost in the moment with this track, it draws you in, forcing your soul to dance along to the wonderful groove. This one gives us a superb moment on the break where a real funky sequence adds that extra layer. Super stuff yet again.
