Mute: is a dj / producer heavily influenced by his family musical background – he grew up surrounded by drum machines & synths and at an early age was taken to the DMC’s which in his own words “changed his life” and started his obsession with vinyl/djing.
With a long story within the music business with his Kike Pravda moniker, MUTE: is another side of him, a more minimal,tech and detroitish sound.

Born in Elizondo (Navarra-Spain), Piek is next to Oren BI or El_Txef_A, one of the electronic music artists from Euskadi that are gaining more and more respect around the world.
His talent is reflected in numerous productions, doing collaborations with artists like UNER, Danny Serrano or with Miguel Toro . The result of this work was his nomination for best revelation producer in Deejaymagazine, and the licensing of his song “La Gondola” with Stan Garac in the last compilation of the legendary London club Fabric, mixed by Derrick Carter himself.
His passion for music since he was a little kid has allowed him to develop a very special selection when it comes to playing records.Thats why his DJ sets are always a surprise, diferent and a sharing experience with the audience.

Rogério Martins was born in 1974 in Setúbal, Portugal, and since a tender age his passion for music was always present, either collecting records or recording radioshows to exaustion.
It was not until 1995, during the big electronic boom in Portugal that his interest for deejaying growed and soon after he was already playing bars and clubs in his hometown.
Fast forward to 2004, where he saw his first record release, Deep Flight 01 and straight after a series of remixes and originals were starting to see the daylight in several labels like Look At You Records or Player Records.
Back in 2007 he then started his own label, Piston Recordings, where since then he has been releasing several works, originals and remixes and getting praises from various top dj’s in the world like Laurent Garnier, John Acquaviva, etc…
Nowadays he keeps working on Piston Recordings with fellow artists Accatone and Piek, DJ’ing regularly nationally and internationally in Spain, Germany, Belgium, etc and preparing a bunch of original works to be released in Piston Recordings.
