Porto, Portugal based DJ and producer Mi Ke aka Mike Morales debuts on Piston with the absolute monster three tracker 214 EP. Mike is a force to be reckoned with on the house scene as he’s been around for quite some time. He is heavily influenced by Portugal’s infamous underground scene his name began resonating amongst established DJ’s and artists. His debut track – Dream Shattered, premiered on Digweed’s Transitions radio show in 2003 and since then he has continued to churn out top quality vibes. He runs his own label – Ssignature Music and back in 2013 our very own label boss Rogerio Martins featured as remix artist on Fauvrelle’s Turn Me On alongside fellow remixer Mi Ke.

Angelo Ferreri & Daniele Kama join forces on our next Piston release with this superb two tracker entitled Wasting Time. Italian DJ and producer Daniele Kama returns to Piston after his remix stint on Hermann Dius’ UK Movement back in December 2015. This Rome based producer is highly respected in the world of electronica having gained lots of support from a host of international DJ’s and working with many other fine artists on various record labels. Joining Daniele is Sicilian born DJ and producer Angelo Ferreri who brings a wealth of musical knowledge to the table having been around the electronic music scene for quite some time. From a young age he was attracted to the Techno sound of the 90’s and pretty soon he found himself using an old Playstation to learn about arrangements. He got into DJing after learning from older jocks and soon he got his first gigs in Italy and then in Europe. 2004 saw him start to produce and he quickly gained attention from many labels. He started his own label – Mood Funk Records soon after and he continues to play us with only the finest quality sounds.

As we are always scouting for producers with talent and a passion for music, we thought it was about time to launch a new remix contest. The winner’s remix will become part of Manu Riga’s new album which is due next summer (with remix contract) and the top 3 will receive a surprise goodie package. Interested? Click the button below to enter the remix contest.
Manu Riga was formed in 2004 by Adriaan Baussens, not long after this in 2005 he released his first single, “Good Feeling”, this rode high in the Belgium dance chart.
After sending the 2005 track “Tai Chi Girl” to Bonzai Progressive he found his new home. The label recognised the potential & appreciated his approach to music resulting in an artist deal.
Soon after this remixes for Quadran, Art Of Trance, … more were requested including remixes for Blufeld, Planisphere, LoQuai & Crocy to name just a few.
Manu Riga’s style is progressive with a touch of emotional synth & a tribal backdrop, this was evident in his release “Time In Between”. The single “No Matter What” on the same label followed with remixes from Moshic, Kintar and others. To date Manu Riga has an impressive list of releases which saw lots of support from all over the world.

Piston main man and head honcho Rogerio Martins is remix duty and delivers another fine slice of deepness for our listening pleasure. When this guy isn’t busy sifting demos and managing his label he gets into the studio to delight us with his sounds. Fresh off the back of his debut release on the legendary KMS Records, Rogerio loves nothing more than dishing out deep and groovy vibes and here he does not disappoint. The remix open with a very cool bassy kick drum and a super crispy hat with subtle percussions bringing up the rear. No time is wasted and soon the beautifully warm bass envelopes the sound while equally warm pads create a deep atmosphere. The track takes a short break where we are introduced to the star of the show, a fantastic piano chord that just oozes coolness and sophistication. The piano is so understated that it quite simply dominates the groove to perfection. Sprinklings of that smooth vocal litter the track making this a track you do not want to miss.
Pavlin Petrov is back at Bonzai Progressive with the superb Resistance. This one comes after he dished out the goods on remix duty for Crocy’s – Mind, back towards the end of 2015. His BP debut – Feeling Alive certainly turned a few heads and we’ve no doubt that this one will follow suit.
