Based in Barcelona, Spain, GarcyNoise aka Ruben Garcia returns to Piston with this stunner entitled The Colour Of Your Heart. Ruben has featured on Piston before with cuts showing up on The Secrets Of The Trade 2 and Best Of Piston Recordings 2012 as well as the diverse She’s Got It EP back in 2012. Considered an international force in electronic music Ruben has worked with top producers from around the world and is a highly respected DJ and producer. He set up his own label Justified Cause Recordings which has spawned a whole host of top talent and led to the formation of a sub label, Justified Entertainment which itself has a very impressive roster. Vinyl is a big part of his ethos and he has been collecting since a young age, at 17 he started to play at parties around his hometown and beyond before breaking out onto the international scene.
First up we have the Original Mix of The Colour Of Your Heart with its electrified intro that features very cool FX accompanied by a raw bass sound. A nice phat kick soon appears and the groove starts to take shape beautifully. The track takes on a very street vibe with gritty sounds and sharp percussions. The arrangement is tight and combines well giving off that raw house vibe which becomes so infectious. The break introduces a smooth funky synth that gives so much character and makes this a definite must have for those deep sets.
Spanish DJ and producer Andres Boned aka Bonetti delivers a stunning remix of The Colour Of Your Heart as he takes the sound through a pure house workout with sublime twists and turns. We recently saw Bonetti’s ‘My House Of Neglect’ on Piston which done the rounds in style. This remix is top notch as it nurtures the original sounds into a driving house groove filled with sublime organ riffs that will have you hooked in no time and a super tight drum arrangement that will have the asses shaking all night long. All this is shored up by a very cool and deep bass that sits perfectly within the sound. Cool vocal samples are evident throughout and keep with the street vibe of the original. Top notch stuff from Bonetti, not to be missed.
The next track we have is the Original Mix of Not NY. The intro is a smooth percussion led sequence with a classic wood hit that drives the tempo beautifully. A fantastic stab teases its way into the sound and soon dominates the track before a nice chunky kick gets the track really moving. Classic electro sounds are there to be discovered as the track evolves with the master stroke being that groovy bassline that seeps right into your soul as it commands authority throughout the sound along with its groovy synth riff partner. Nice vocal samples are the perfect addition here and round off a stunning display of house music production, superb stuff!
Italian DJ and producer Ivan Masa offers up his remix of Not NY. Ivan’s last outing on Piston was the stunning ‘Don’t Stop The Groove Man’ which solidifies this guys talents as a top end producer. Here the remix takes the groove that little bit deeper with its tough bass that pulsates right through the sound. Cool drum arrangements provide a solid rhythmic bass as classic vocal samples come through. A stabby synth begins to form and transforms into a tasty riff that keeps this track firmly at the deeper end. The break sees more of that synth stab as beautifully placed strings and pads begin to filter in. A brilliant slice of house that will do well on the floors no doubt.
Italian DJ and producer Ivan Masa debuts on Piston with this wonderful two tracker ‘Don’t Stop The Groove Man’. Ivan recently released his old school inspired ‘From London’ on Eyepatch gaining much praise for a stunning piece of work.
First up we get ‘Don’t Stop The Groove Man’ which intros with a nice and smooth percussion arrangement before the chunky kicks and cool deep stabs come through. A brilliantly lush groovy bass pops up and totally dominates the sound to the backdrop of a pure House pad that sweeps through the sound. Very cool classic vocal samples get a show and soon the funk factor rises as the sounds evolve. Very dynamic sounding track and one that will be a must for any box.
‘Caramel And Chocolate’ sets off with a funky rhythm made up of cool hats and a groovy synth note. The bass come through beautifully and ramps up the groove big time as vocal samples begin to shine all over the track. The break showcases the power of the funky groove as the synth takes over with a high note oscillating in the background. Fantastic structure on this track as the bass transforms perfectly with the sound and the vocal popping up at the right places.
Top notch stuff yet again from Ivan, not to be missed.
Italian DJ and producer Ivan Masa debuts on Eyepatch with the sublime three tracker ‘From London EP’ which also comes with two superb remixes to whet your appetite. Ivan grew up with music all around him so it’s no wonder his path led him to become involved in music. Having played at many gigs around his hometown Ivan soon found his niche within the early Acid sounds of the eighties. With successful releases across many labels we are delighted to welcome this great talent in the Bonzai family.
‘From London’ is up first and sets off on a smooth deep grooving ride as chunky kicks and sharp hats take over from a cool percussion led intro. Surreal chords are accompanied by a high pitched synth adding cool textures to the sound. The deep bass lifts the track up a notch and is soon joined by some vocal samples and a round of grungy synths, superb stuff!
The Original Mix of ‘Old School In My Skin’ has a very cool retro theme as expected from the title. A single high string is joined by a percussion line and a very cool vocal sample. Big phat kicks soon come through as a groovy bassline takes shape alongside funky house synths. The main break delivers a cool chord sequence with some quality snares taking us into each section before blasting back into this deep fuelled groove, top notch stuff!
Italian DJ and production duo 2Manyfold aka Francesco Fortini and Giovanni Martino are up on remix duty on ‘Old School In My Skin’. The guys have worked with Ivan in the past and have themselves released a multitude of track across many labels. Here they transform the original into a full on deep fuelled masterclass in house music. Nice and smooth snare driven intro with cool synths making their mark. The kicks really set the track up perfectly for the journey ahead with the vocal samples fitting in perfectly. The track evolves beautifully as a big bass sound bursts through to dominate. On the break a very well crafted synth sequence shines through before some smooth chords take over, excellent workout from these guys and definitely one to watch!
‘Sweet In My Heart’ is up next and intros with a fantastic vocal which soon leads to a massive kick and bass combo that will pump any floor. Big and bouncy grooves abound and as the sound progresses we get some funky synths and vocals which add huge character to the proceedings. Big tune here and a must for any box.
The Italian connection continues as Daniele Kama steps up to remix ‘Sweet In My Heart’. Daniele has already carved a cool niche with his sound and has appeared on the home of deep house, Piston Recordings, with his EP ‘She Appears’ in 2012 as well as other remixes on various Bonzai imprints. Here he keeps the deep grooves flowing with a stunning display of sounds. Nice and smooth intro as a sweeping synth is accompanied by a single clap, soon a huge kick appears and is suitably coupled with a pounding deep bass. The vocals are prominent throughout and on the main break they marry well with a dry, sublime melody. A sure fire big hitter here with all the qualities to rip up any floor.
