Black Dolly is a straight up tech house pumper that will definitely command a presence on the floors with its thumping kick drums and rhythmic percussions. This one delivers a solid groove which is spurred on by the on beat bass that creates a superb vibe. But the big hitter here is the hypnotic acid line that runs right through the heart of the track and coupled with a very cool vocal sets this one up to hammered by many, a definite must have.
Snap sets out with a very cool retro kinda vibe as punchy kicks are offset by bright crispy hats and sharp claps. The kick drums get a huge boost to deliver a solid thump that will get the bassbins working overtime. A cool and funky style bassline eases into the sound as the drums begin to pile up creating a nice rhythmic flow. Cool vocals shots give the track a club vibe and will no doubt generate an interest on the floors, top notch stuff indeed.

A plethora of keys and pads dish out intricate melodies that captivate. The melodies are backed up by some sultry vocals that blend so beautifully into the sound. A fantastic construction of sounds perfectly suited to late loungy sets, a must have.
Mesh delivers a brilliant slice of deep house. It’s one of those tracks that forces you to let go on the floors, the driving nature of the track ensures this. Punchy kick drums are joined by crispy hi hats and a tight percussion arrangement. The big player though are those wonderful chords and expertly crafted arps that sit perfectly over the driving bassline. Cool vocals grace the track adding textures along with an ever building synth section. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.
Turin based DJ and producer duo Seb Ba and Denny IlSan make up DYS (Italy) and here they mark their Piston Recordings debut with the superb two tracker My Girl.

They notched up their first release on Klaphouse Records with Is Not Necessary EP in May 2016 which propelled them into the producer world. We’re delighted to have the guys on board and we sure hope to see and hear a lot more from them in the years ahead.
My Girl intros with a probing bass against a shuffling percussion pattern that is soon joined by some very nice chunky kick drums that lead the charge. The bassline continues to probe deeper and is joined by ultra cool pads laden with FX. Those pads create a super rich sound filled with wonderful textures and dancefloor friendly vibes. Scattered vocal snippets add a subtle club vibe which will most definitely appeal to many, a must have.
I Love It sets off with a bass heavy intro that will give the bassbins some work to do alongside a solid pumping kick drum.

A definite late night stomper that is not to be missed.
