OLI FRANCES – SLOW MO FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Debut appearance on Piston for Blackpool, UK based DJ and producer Oli Frances with his superb Slow Mo, which also comes backed up with a top class remix from Alvaro Martins. This relatively young artist is proving to be a person of interest due to his great knowledge and love of house music. At 23 years old he has already got the attention of many in the industry having played at top nights such as Sub Sono, Edit and Kaluki in venues like Sankey’s, Bar 137 and Warehouse. On the production front he is making waves on various labels with his raw style and driving house grooves. Great to have him on board here at Piston and we hope to see more in the months ahead.

Oli Frances – Slow Mo, out this week on Piston Recordings, is featured by Beatport in the Staff Picks section at the Deep House genre page!

MATAN CASPI – SERENITY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matan is back with the irresistible Serenity which comes backed up with a remix from Audio Noir, enough to get the progressive taste bud flowing. Matan remains a very popular figure at Bonzai, his work always oozes quality and attracts a lot of attention. His last outing Aim To The Moon, did just that having gained top spots across various platforms. Always an exciting time when his stuff comes through the office.

On the Original Mix the track eases into its progressive flow with a strong kick and a selection of sublime strings and pads that give off a nice ethnic flavour. The bassline sits perfectly at the low end and really drives home the deeper side of the groove. Drums and percussion slowly build up and provide a solid rhythm to the backdrop of stunning FX and surreal vocal snippets. At the break huge strings swell up as bright and beautiful pianos plink along the sound before we are taken right back into the main groove for the duration. A superb slice of prog once again from this man and a definite must have.

Australian DJ and producer Audio Noir never lets up on the quality front as he always delivers the goods, his Audio Noir Safari mix on Serenity is no exception and must be heard. Audio Noir kicked off 2015 with Life which gained a lot of support all over and he is currently working on other material, which is exciting as he always likes to delve into different styles, drawing inspiration from unlikely sources. Much more to come from this guy in the months ahead so stay tuned. The remix intros with a beautifully constructed sequence filled with bright melodic notes and tribalistic slapped drums. The layers just keep on building as wave after wave of rich strings and pads sweep across a steady chord layout. Whispered voices bring an air of mystery to the sound that builds a lot of character into the track. We get a superb dosing of strummed guitars that lead up to the tight beats as the melodies continue to float by before the track settles into its progressive groove filled with probing basses and shuffling hats. A fantastic cut yet again that you will not want to miss.

OLI FRANCES – SLOW MO (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Debut appearance on Piston for Blackpool, UK based DJ and producer Oli Frances with his superb Slow Mo, which also comes backed up with a top class remix from Alvaro Martins. This relatively young artist is proving to be a person of interest due to his great knowledge and love of house music. At 23 years old he has already got the attention of many in the industry having played at top nights such as Sub Sono, Edit and Kaluki in venues like Sankey’s, Bar 137 and Warehouse. On the production front he is making waves on various labels with his raw style and driving house grooves. Great to have him on board here at Piston and we hope to see more in the months ahead.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a cool punchy kick and sharp hat combi with a teasing bass lurking in the rear. The bass comes to the fore with its amazing analog prowess and brings with it a warm flowing house groove. Offset keys provide a cool contrast to the lower frequencies that playfully dance their way through the groove. Throughout the track we get a very cool 90’s flavour that just oozes out of the piano riffs. A very tight and solid slice of house which is a definite must have.

On remix duty we have Porto based producer Alvaro Martins. Alvaro grew up with a love for 80’s and 90’s Pop and Rock sounds which soon developed into a passion for Classic Soul and Funk. At 8 years old he joined a music school and learned classic piano which gave him a deeper insight into how music evolves. Nowadays his early influences have proved useful in his outstanding production style. He has released a plethora of top quality House cuts across many labels and he also joins forces with his friend to form Peers & Upright with releases on Something Else and Save Room Recordings. On the remix we get a bass heavy intro that reverberates beautifully through the sounds system with sharp, crispy hats cutting through the low end. Very smooth house keys make their way into the sound with groovy riff that leads us into a raw analog groove. On the break the 90’s flavour pours out in the form of classic piano stabs as cool vocals pop up all around. A fantastic contrast between the old skool style and modern deep house grooves, top notch stuff.
