CARLO CALDARERI – CUZ I’M KILLIN (PISTON RECORDINGS)

It’s been just over a year since we last saw Carlo at Piston HQ, we’re delighted to have him back with his latest offering Cuz I’m Killing which comes with no less than four top notch remixes from Rogerio Martins, Marcus Raute, JR From Dallas and Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a nice and smooth kick and hat combo. Cool percussions form up providing a flowing rhythm which takes us to the main feature on this track, the bassline. The bass sits perfectly as it meanders through the sound giving off a head nodding rhythmic vibe as cool vocals scatter throughout. A very cool slice of house that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

DJ, producer and Piston founder Rogerio Martins is first up on remix duty. As ever Rogerio spends most of his time managing the label as well as many other things including Piston Recordings radio show. His last outing Gonna Be Mine saw great support and was licensed for the Enter Ibiza 2014 compilation, featured in Apollonia’s Terrace Mix. The remix intros with a punchy kick and a vocal sample on the offset as bright and crispy hats follow. The star of the show begins to emerge in the shape of spicy chords that filter in and out beautifully. A deep subtle bassline sits back allowing those chords to shine while on the break smooth pads rise up and give off that true deep house vibe. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.

Next up we have the Marcus Raute Re-pitched Mix. Back in the summer of this year we saw Marcus’ Samplin’ Memories EP which was very well received indeed and since then he also got a showing on the Deep Worx 9 compilation. No doubt we are in for another treat with this remix. The intro sets off with a very cool percussion arrangement filled with crispy hats, sharp claps and snappy snares to the backdrop of a chunky kick. A deep-rooted bass soon bursts through and dominates the sound with its throbbing groove as percussive layers continue to build throughout. Superb stuff yet again from Marcus and definitely one for the floors.

JR From Dallas delivers his superb Raw Mix and gets the deep house vibes flowing with a super tight cut. It’s been a while since JR has been around these shores but we know that when he does reappear we can expect something special. The intro boasts a cool percussive driven arrangement that continues to build bringing a smooth rhythmic vibe. A short break reveals cool vocals and leads into a wonderful strolling bassline that will get asses shakin in no time. A relentless groove ensues as your senses are raided by the tight drum and percussion patterns making this a definite must for those bouncy house parties.

Rounding off this superb release we have the Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax Re-vocal Mix. The guys are no strangers to Piston and tracks like this are the reason. Summer of this year saw their track Let It gain lots of support from many quarters. We hope to see more from this duo in the future. The remix sets off with a cool punchy kick as the percussive elements build getting the rhythm flowing. A deep throbbing bass complete with the most fantastic tail end warms the track beautifully as the vocals begin to come through. The break is filled with various vocal samples and FX with the percussions keeping the vibe alive before we get right back into the main groove. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

GHETTO TALES EP – VOLUME 2 (PISTON RECORDINGS)

As the vinyl resurgence continues to gain momentum Piston Recordings head honcho Rogerio Martins has selected top quality cuts to make up the next vinyl release entitled ‘Ghetto Tales EP Volume 2′. Rogerio is joined by friends Miguel Reis, Carlo Caldareri and Yusuke Yamamoto as four stunning deep house slices are etched onto plastic so you can enjoy the analogue pleasure of putting the needle on the record. Undoubtedly the best way to listen to music, you will not be disappointed.

First up is Rogerio with his exclusive Taking It Back. As ever Rogerio continues to run a tight ship putting in the hours running the label, DJing, remixing and producing. Lots more to come through for 2014 so it’s worth keeping an eye on. The intro goes classic with a chunky kick and sharp hat combo along with a well crafted snare arrangement. The rhythms soon gather pace as a beautifully lush bass joins in. Groovy house keys add great depth to the sound while simple vocal samples sit back before being unleashed with a long release. The break brings forth a deeper sub bass that marries perfectly with those vocals before slamming back into the main groove. Top class stuff yet again from Portugal and a great addition to those “physical” record boxes.

Miguel Reis is up next with his Classic Motherfucker Record. Miguel Reis is a new moniker and is the very same artist with a multitude of releases under the alias of Mike Kings who has seen tracks on labels like Nervous Records, Stereo Productions, Kult Records, Session Trax, Fatal Music, Magna Recordings, and many more. The track intros with a nice mix of kicks and percs which set up a smooth rhythmic vibe, a deep, rasping vocal comes in with a very cool narrative which blends perfectly with the house beats. The track builds steadily as the vocal becomes a big focus before a truly deep and groovy bassline comes to the fore and injecting a funky flavour to the sound, top stuff.

Italian born DJ and producer Carlo Caldareri is back to Piston with this exclusive vinyl cut Not Before. Since he was young he always cultivated a passion for music, he spent the first years of his career looking into different genres of music. Soon he focused in on house music and his DJ sets began to take on house and deep house grooves. Carlo has worked with top artists and his tracks have appeared on many labels including Digital Traffik, Microtech Records and Mono Recordings to name just a few. Here the track intros with a cool percussion arrangement before classic styled kicks gets the sound locked into a solid groove. The bass rules from below as it cascades up through the sound, simple and effective short vocal samples add huge weight to the groove as the track takes us into a gritty workout complete with brass stabs. The break unleashes a brilliant Hip Hop styled vocal sample that leads us right back into this full on deep house monster groover.

Yusuke Yamamoto aka Freischwimmer delivers with his stunning Night Journey which is exclusive to this vinyl release. Yusuke is a contemporary house music producer and DJ currently based in Kyoto, Japan. His authentic sound remains universal and independent of trends and periods. He runs his own label Vacances Records and has seen release on many other labels including Oasi Lab, Houseworx, City Life, Ibiza House Hotspot and more. His last outing on Piston ‘Sun Shower EP’ was well received and is a testament to the eclectic nature of his style. A minimal sounding approach with a nicely clipped kick and percussion combo while a cool atmosphere is created in the background with great FX work. A simple yet highly effective bass joins the fray and soon transforms into a dominating force in the sound. Cool synth keys hypnotise and are joined by a much tougher synth riff that has a gritty edge. Throughout the sound a brilliant vocal sample keeps the groove flowing and continues through the break where a striking high pitched string comes in and leads us back into the swing of the main groove. Great stuff from Yusuke and definitely not to be missed.

KENNY KEYS – SOURCE (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Brighton based UK producer Kenny Keys debuts on Piston with wonderful Source and comes backed up with two quality remixes. Kenny has been delivering his faultless cuts for a few years now and his tracks have appeared on Massive Music, GND Records and Kompass Recordings. We’re delighted to have this guy on board and look forward to more in the future.

First up we have the Original Mix of Source which intros with a brilliant percussion driven groove alongside a punchy club kick. The rolling percs are tweaked to perfection and become a major player on the track. A fantastic deep sub bass bursts through with a cool plucky synth over the top which is replaced with a sublime sliding riff. Super tight arrangement that will be a big feature for many floors no doubt.

No introduction needed for Piston boss Rogerio Martins as he steps up with a superb remix. Beautifully tapered kicks pack a huge punch on the intro and throughout as the rolling percussions build us up to the main groove. The groove is intensified with a brilliant deep bass that has the power to move, this is coupled with a classy chord that filters in and out beautifully. Silky smooth female vocals give it the club feel making this an absolute gem of a track that will light up many floors this summer!

Italian DJ and producer Marcus Raute spends his time between Naples and Berlin where no doubt he draws from both cultures to refine his own sounds. Marcus is a player in the modern underground world where he dishes out his brand of all things House and Techno. Here he delivers a solid remix that intros with a chunky kick and cool, crispy hats and percussions. Deep chords rise up from the depths and blossom into a very cool, sliding riff before leaving the scene and letting those tight drums, pulsing basses and vocals do their work. The break reveals those chords once again and locks us in for the duration, superb stuff!

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.
