Debut appearance on Piston for Blackpool, UK based DJ and producer Oli Frances with his superb Slow Mo, which also comes backed up with a top class remix from Alvaro Martins. This relatively young artist is proving to be a person of interest due to his great knowledge and love of house music. At 23 years old he has already got the attention of many in the industry having played at top nights such as Sub Sono, Edit and Kaluki in venues like Sankey’s, Bar 137 and Warehouse. On the production front he is making waves on various labels with his raw style and driving house grooves. Great to have him on board here at Piston and we hope to see more in the months ahead.

Having joined forces just a few short months ago, Manu Riga and Matt Holliday deliver the fruits of their labour with the superb two tracker You Are Contagious. Both artists bring their different expertise to the table, Manu aka Adriaan Baussens, with his deep, dark and tribal ethnic flavours merges beautifully with Matt’s progressive trance, tech edged grooves. Their producer minds have connected effortlessly as they collaborated initially via Skype and then in person with Manu travelling to Matt’s hometown of Birmingham. Manu is a longstanding member of the Bonzai family and has brought many top notch progressive tracks to the table, a list way too big to type. Matt has established himself firmly within the underground scene in the last few years, he has released on top labels including JOOF, L*C*D, Discover and Go On Air. His style of producing covers progressive, trance and deep tech grooves and it was this that caught the eye of John 00 Fleming, who described him as a “great discovery”. A big moment for Matt, and one he takes great pride in, was back in 2014 when he had the opportunity to remix a track for the legend that is Airwave. Big plans are ahead as these two gifted artists let loose their creativity in the studio and refine their DJing skills with upcoming radio guest spots.

ravenherz aka Otto Ravenherz returns to Elemental with a blissful trek into chilldom with Host. This young Russian producer debuted at the start of 2014 with Safe Place which has since went on to feature on numerous compilations. In his earlier years he was inspired by the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, AC/DC and Metallica. At the age of +5, he was watching live performances on VHS again and again and decided to become a Rock Star, but his parents always told him that being a musician isn’t a stable way of life. Later, against the odds, he attended music school and found a passion for electronica as well as studying forensic science. Currently he enjoys dabbling with a wide range of music styles of which the results are outstanding. We hope to see much more from this guy in the future.
