RICK WADE – DAEDALUS FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Detroit based, prolific house music producer and DJ Rick Wade makes a welcome return to Piston, after a bit of a hiatus, with the superb Daedalus. It was back in 2013 when we last got a glimpse of this highly respect artist with his very much revered, Zombie. With a career spanning over 20 years, Rick utilises music as a release which in turn allows him to further his ideas and his approach to creating stunning DJ sets. A product of the heyday of deep house Rick continues to ply his trade through various radioshows with his fresh, soulful and downright dancy sets. Great to see him back with this fantastic offering and we hope to see more in the future.

RICK WADE – DAEDALUS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Detroit based, prolific house music producer and DJ Rick Wade makes a welcome return to Piston, after a bit of a hiatus, with the superb Daedalus. It was back in 2013 when we last got a glimpse of this highly respect artist with his very much revered, Zombie. With a career spanning over 20 years, Rick utilises music as a release which in turn allows him to further his ideas and his approach to creating stunning DJ sets. A product of the heyday of deep house Rick continues to ply his trade through various radioshows with his fresh, soulful and downright dancy sets. Great to see him back with this fantastic offering and we hope to see more in the future.

The Original Mix of Daedalus intros with a tight kick and sharp percussions that build up a flowing rhythmic vibe alongside cool slapped drums. Smooth, soulful keys beckon releasing a full on deep infectious groove that lasts long into the night. The bass offers great depth to the sound and delivers a somewhat laidback approach in contrast to the dancy beats. Cool, heartfelt vocals come through and add to the poignant soulful vibe. A real nice slice of deep here that will get a few heads turning for sure.

Piston head honcho Rogerio Martins delivers his Deep Down Inside Remix. Aside from running the label on a day to day basis, Rogerio certainly knows how to produce the goods. His recent vinyl cut, Otherwise Unknown, shot up the vinyl charts with ease and gained a large support base from across the world with the digital release looking likely to follow suit. Already in 2015 we have seen great things from this guy and rest assured there will be much, much more to come. The remix intros with a nice big pumping kick with sharp claps on the downbeat alongside a fantastic deep bass line. That bass line melds beautifully into the sound and contrasts perfectly with those bright and crispy hats. A solid groove is formed as the layers build and the introduction of smooth, warm keys ramps up the soulful elements. A super tight production that will definitely light up the floors.

Paradox intros with a cool breaks drum arrangement and is soon joined by an array of acid style plucks. Organically charged chords come through resulting in a dark atmospheric vibe that is coupled with high strings resulting in cool contrasting textures. An innovative drum arrangement keeps the groove on track and offers a cool listening experience which you will not want to miss.

RICK WADE – ZOMBIE RP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

The legendary Rick Wade makes a welcome return to Piston with his ‘Zombie RP’ which comes backed up with a superb remix. Rick’s last outing ‘Night Flyer’ saw much support from all quarters and no doubt we will be seeing a lot more support with this latest offering.

We kick off with the Original Mix of the title track ‘Zombie RP’ which gets us moving with classic kick and hat intro. A fantastic big double bass soon takes over the sound as the grooves begin to shuffle along. A nice and warm piano finds its way in alongside a subtle stab and wispy FX. Superb stuff from Mr Wade and an absolute must for those late night groovy floors.

The head honcho at Piston, Rogerio Martins, lends his skills at the mixing desk with his Rotting Deep Remix of ‘Zombie RP’. Rogerio recently released his own ‘Gonna Be Mine’ on vinyl which is proving to be an increasingly popular choice of media in these days of technology. Here Rogerio gets things moving with a chunky kick and a superb array of hats and cymbals that give off a classy vibe. The bassline dominates the track beautifully as the main hook appears and takes us up to the break where deep chords being to rise before slamming us back into the groove, not to be missed!

‘Mighty’ is up next with a chunky intro filled with phat kicks and a cool percussion arrangement. Sweeping synths set the mood brilliantly and make way for a pulsating bassline that just rolls along the groove superbly. As the track evolves layers continue to build and result in a full flowing deep and funky house vibe. We get a few respites in the short breaks that occur before we are flung back into this relentless groove. Fantastic stuff and a track that will be a main feature in many sets for sure.
