Our next Piston release comes as a real treat, a trio of artists at the top of their game have joined forces to deliver a stunning slice of smooth deep house vibes. D-Compost & Leandro Silva have recruited the heavenly vocal talents of Veselina Popova on their Piston debut Feel Alive. D-Compost is a DJ and producer who spends his time between Lisbon and London. He got into dance music from a very early age thanks to his older brother. When he moved to a new town at just 13 years of age he quickly settled into life in a new school and became involved with the local radio station. Lots of DJ bookings followed and soon he got into production where he has gained worldwide recognition due to his unique style which is derived from a love of many different genres. Angolan DJ Leandro Silva began to play music in 1997 and turned professional in 2001. He has plied his trade in Luanda ever since and has continued to promote and expand his music with residencies in top clubs all over the city. His DJing skills transfer to music production with ease and he has racked up a very impressive back catalogue across many top labels. Rounding up this trio is Bulgarian vocalist Veselina Popova. After her participation on a local televised talent show Veselina embarked on a singing career with a few Pop releases coming soon after. Currently she focuses her attention on House music projects and with her stunning vocal range we are glad she chose this particular path.

Expect deep, groovy, sultry, edgy, gritty and downright banging tracks on this limited pressing.
Debut appearance on Bonzai Progressive for Mendexx with the superb Life Begins which is backed by three fantastic remixes.The Original Mix intros with a smooth kick and strolling bass that gets the juices flowing. Cool percussions form up and bring a nice rhythmic vibe to the sound as various FX add depth. The bass hypnotizes as it unleashes its groove on our senses and takes us deep into the progressive abyss. Spacey synths dominate as they deliver their harsh tones giving the track a real edgy feel. The break reveals some very cool and subtle melodic flavours which stand in contrast to those harsher synths before the track rises back into the main groove. A top notch slice of prog for those darker rooms.

Releases on labels like Dusk Underground Music, Planet Acetate Records and Dash Deep Records followed and gave him the opportunity to share his music. We are delighted to welcome Jamie and his tight production skills here at BP and look forward to an exciting future.
