FORMEL – THE MAGNIFICENT KALEIDOSCOPA EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Leiden based duo Formel aka Tom Noah and Bas Van Der Laken debut on Piston with the superb The Magnificent Kaleidoscopa EP. The guys had met in strange circumstances, they were fighting over a bottle of Vodka backstage at a gig and from that they formed Formel. Since then they have forged a strong partnership and blended their respective styles, Bas having the more progressive sound and Tom having a more tech house style. They debuted in 2013 on Bla Bla Records and have played at top gigs and events across Europe. Well worth keeping an eye on this formidable pair.

We kick off this superb EP with the title track, The Magnificent Kaleidoscopa. The intro eases in with some cool percussions that have a hint of tribalism attached. A perfectly balanced thumping kick soon takes over with a super sweet pad and sultry vocal sitting in the background. The bassline is a wonderfully rich, full sound that warms the track beautifully as smooth synths add a colourful texture. A very smooth and upbeat slice that will be a feature in many sets for sure.

Popayan intros with a subtle percussion with distant melodic phrases fading in from the back. A strong punchy kick gets the track really moving with the help of crispy sharp hats and some brilliant FX. The bassline takes the sound that little bit further with its deep resonating pulses. Very smooth and groovy offering with beautifully layered sounds, top notch.

Prince Rupert sets off with a cool punchy kick as the percussions begin to form up to bring a steady, flowing rhythm. Lush chords bring a wonderful deep house groove to the sound which are filled with melodic flavours. The bassline brings a tough edge to the track which contrasts perfectly with much more upbeat main sound. The break reveals smooth pads that ebb and flow beautifully leading to some cool synth work before getting right back into the main groove for the duration, classy stuff that is not to be missed.

KRES FEATURING PAOLO CAMPONUOVO – OH BOY (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Kres and Paolo Camponuovo make their Piston debut with the stunning two tracker Oh Boy. Italian born Kres grew up messing around with midi cables and hardware samplers in his basement. He became attached to Hip Hop and vinyl before getting more into techno and house. He has a long list of releases across many labels and always delivers the goods. Paolo brings band playing experience to the track with some cool riffs on the saxophone and gives the track a lot of character.

Oh Boy takes us on a smooth and colourful journey through loungy deep hose grooves. The intro boasts a mish-mash of clangy percussions that paint a cool picture and work in perfect contrast to the deep, throbbing bass and chunky kicks. Melancholic pianos dish out their surreal melodic touches as a wonderful saxophone riff plays throughout and gives that jazzy lounge touch. Very cool stuff you will want in your collection for sure.

Sunshine takes us on a surreal deep house journey with many twists along the way. Big chunky kicks are joined by a deep droning bass synth that evolves brilliantly into a full on bassline pattern as cool, dark vocals come through. Various piano types can be heard through the layers which works perfectly in the sound and on the main break those pianos are keyed beautifully to reveal a very colourful melodic sequence. Top notch stuff that would be a definite must for those late night sessions.

Italian producer Marco Madia returns to Piston with his newest two track cut entitled 12 Seagulls EP. We last saw Marco back in early 2014 with his Dance Files EP which was well received with great support coming from all quarters.

First up is the title track 12 Seagulls with its real smooth deep house flavour. The intro boasts a nice and warm synth stab as the percussions form up bringing a flowing rhythm. The bass eases into the sound and provides a solid platform for this groovy ride which draws you in for the duration. The break throws up some cool piano sounds which takes the sound deeper still before kicking back into this fine slice of deep house, a must have track for sure.

21 Souls gently comes into existence with a lush bass tone to the backdrop of a tapping percussive instrument before a deep pulsating bass takes over alongside a snappy kick drum. Crispy hats create a nice flowing rhythm as cool house chords fade through. The track builds beautifully with those stabs becoming much more prominent while the bass relentlessly delivers its superb groove. A top notch cut that will be a welcome addition to any deep set.

Solid Groove is up next and is the perfect description for this sound. Big pounding kicks and crispy sharp percussions set the scene beautifully for this groove. The bass rises up from deep within the sound and throbs right through the groove as very cool FX come in alongside a fantastic synth riff. Instantly recognisable vocal samples add that classic touch which will definitely see this track hit the floors hard.

In Da Houz intros with some very cool percussions that get the rhythms flowing with the help of a chunky kick and some classic vocal samples. The bassline walks through the sound leaving a groovy ass shaking aftertaste that will keep the floors moving.

S!LK – ARGO’S LULLABY (PISTON RECORDINGS)

S!LK debuts on Piston with his three tracker Argo’s Lullaby. Italian born but raised in USA and South America S!LK has carved out a name for himself among his peers with superb releases across many labels. When DJing he likes to keep things interesting while mixing up genres and keeping the floor pumping. In producing he adds atmospherics in unlikely places with top results and it is this type of workmanship that gains lots of respect.

First up we have the deep Argo’s Lullaby with its smooth intro boasting a low end kick and layered percussions building effortlessly. Nice and tight arrangements which give off a rhythmic vibe as cool FX add textures in the background. A subtle intensity builds in the sound as we head to the break where wonderfully layered sounds create a stunning atmosphere with a groovy edge. Great stuff that will do well in those deeper loosened up sets.

Mutafuka Say is up next and gets right into the groove as chunky kicks are contrasted with crispy hats and tight drum patterns. Deep chords provide a solid groove and sit perfectly in the sound. Vocal samples add a very cool dynamic and come to the fore on the break with great effect. After the break we settle into a relentless hypnotic groove for the duration. Top notch stuff and not to be missed.

Red Pill intros with a cool percussion arrangement before punchy kicks take over with a smooth vocal sample in the background. Deep house synths take us up to a super groovy bassline that gives the track a dancey vibe. Expertly crafted drum patterns keep the rhythms flowing as those synths dominate the track. Superb cut from S!LK that will no doubt turn a few heads.

DI CHIARA BROTHER’S – COME WITH US EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian DJ and producer duo Davide and Michele Di Chiara aka Di Chiara Brothers debut on Piston with the two track Come With Us EP. The guys have been DJing together for quite a while and in 2010 they got into producing. Since then they have notched up a hugely impressive back catalogue featuring on many labels with a focus mainly on Deep and Tech House.

Come With Us intros with a smooth percussion arrangement and is joined soon after by a nice chunky kick and a bass that walks through the groove beautifully. More percussive layers are added and create a nice flowing rhythmic vibe while the filters take the sound to near silence. A cool vocal arrives adding a wonderful character to the sound before we are slammed right back into a deep tech fuelled ride. A truly relentless monster that will light up any floor.

I Understood brings a fresh wave of deep tech house. Percussion heavy arrangements will get those asses shakin in no time as a nice phat kick thumps out the deeper elements. The bass takes shape with long notes dishing out perfectly pitched lower end frequencies. The big hitter here are the vocal samples which dominate throughout as classic snippets are instantly recognisable. Big pumping dancefloor tune which will be a feature in many sets no doubt.
