We welcome Tuneon back to Piston Recordings with another fine slice of deep house goodness in the form of his Placebo. This one marks his 5th outing here and comes hot on the heels of his We Don’t Learn EP towards the end of 2017. Always great to hear his new works and we hope to see more soon.
Placebo gives us a deliciously deep and groovy slice of house music thanks to a superb arrangement of sounds. Leading the way we have a tight drum section dominated by bright and crispy shuffling hi hats and a pumping kick drum. Swirling pads float overhead, drawing us into the groove while deep basses deliver groovy vibes to get the booty’s shakin’. A definite must have track for the floors that will not disappoint.
Daddy’s Tape intros with a cosmic vibe made up of space age pads and a tight shuffling percussion arrangement. Deep, moving basses full of grit and warmth fade in adding rich textures to the sound. A cool vocal litters the sound while thick keys are matched with bright synth stabs. The bassline powers the track brilliantly with its constant morphing and changing while contrasting sounds blend effortlessly giving the track a very dynamic vibe and a dancey groove.

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.
