Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax are back at Piston with Let It. The guys are fresh off the back of their Piston debut, In Da House which saw great support from many quarters. This time around we are treated to some nice and deep, sublime house, so get ready to groove.
First up we have Let It with a very cool well rounded kick drum and snappy snare combi. Crispy sharp hats join in and the rhythms begin to flow fluently. Lush organ chords get the deep grooves moving to the backdrop of a rumbling bass that sits on the low end beautifully. The break offers up some expertly crafted FX and note structures with cool vocal samples adding character. Nice and tight deep house for the dancefloor, not to be missed.
Break King intros with a nice punchy kick with subtle percussions building slowly as smooth rising pad FX sit in the wings. Loose and hissy hats gather pace as the superb bass pattern begins to weave its magic. Nice and subtle synth hits fade through beautifully taking the groove to deeper levels. Smooth vocals come through on the break giving the track a very cool personality and rounding off a top notch cut, a must have no doubt.
The Spanish are back. That’s true, our well known Spanish duo, composed by Iban Montoro and Jazzman Wax, is back with another EP and we are extremely excited with it! “Amarre” is the name of the third EP from the duo with the Monog Records stamp and it’s composed by two original tracks: “Amarre” and “A Moot Point”.
“Amarre” have all the essential ingredients that makes our label so characteristic: It’s deep, dense, delicate and powerful at the same time. It’s the kind of music that you can easily listen for hours and it will never be too much!
On the B side, we have “A Moot Point” is a dance floor killer! A very powerful groove, combined with subtle chords and a lot of detailed ambient effects are the motto to make this track a “must have” in all the DJ Bags. Just have a listen and see for yourself!
Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax aka Ivan Delgado and Christian Gomez are a DJ and production duo from Spain, the guys are debuting on Piston with this fantastic two tracker ‘In Da House’.
The guys are responsible for a huge amount of releases across many top labels including Susurruous Music, King Street, Soulman, Monog Records and Tip Tap Records to name just a small few. They have a dynamic partnership and their styles mix together very well, they both use as much of the classic analog sound as they can in their works, especially TR-909 and 808 as they try to bring a bit of classic Chicago House into the modern era.
The title track ‘In Da House’ sets us off on a truly sublime deep and groovy journey, the intro boasts a cool percussion line that is soon joined by a nice and full chunky kick that just takes over the sound. A deep rooted bass begins to form as the drum arrangement goes into full effect creating a solid rhythmic base. Warm keys come into play alongside a low and slow vocal sample which really stands out. The break reveals more of those surreal chords while continuing the percussion led theme of the track. Top stuff and a cert to draw a lot of attention.
‘Too Much’ goes into groovy overdrive and does it in style. Nice and steady intro with the kicks and percussions, a few very cool vocal samples come in the form of a sultry female voice and smooth male voice making for a fantastic contrast. The house keys on show are outstanding as they weave out a groovy pattern that takes over the track superbly as the bass sits in the perfect position.
A straight up in your face House stomper that will no doubt light up many floors!
Iosupescu Lucian is the man behind our latest release called “Drug Dealer EP”. Iosupescu is a Romanian DJ and producer living in Italy, with strong focus in what he want and where he wanna go with his music.
Drug Dealer is his debut EP at Monog Records and it is a perfect exemple of Iosupescu tremendous skills as a producer. This EP is composed by 2 original tracks (“Drug Dealer” and “Power Down”) with a very deep, moody vibe (so characteristic of this label) and an outstanding remix of “Drug Dealer” by our well known Spanish duo Iban Montoro and Jazzman Wax. This remix is an authentic dancefloor bomb, with a very different (and much more agressive) approach compared to the original version.
