Italian producer Marcus Raute makes his Piston debut with this stunning three tracker ‘Basement Love EP’. Marcus resides in Berlin and he is a modern producer of electronic music, full of innovation he strives to refine his sound whether it be House or Techno.
First up we have the soulful ‘Basement Love’ which gets the blood pumping from the off as a big chunky kick and pulsating bass set the scene. Staccato chords chip away throughout giving off a powerful groove and taking us right into the heart of deep house. A fantastic vocal works wonders here and gives that soulful touch. Superb stuff from Marcus, one to watch!
‘Be Free’ is up next and gets right into your face with a massive kick that will move any floor. A cool vocal sample wafts through and a smooth pumping bass keeps the rhythm flowing. Sweeping pads and funky keys are met with a brilliant female vocal giving the track a real fresh uplift. A monster of a tune that will have floors bouncing no doubt!
Rounding up this wonderful EP we have ‘Gi-Give Me’. The intro boasts a cool chunky kick and rhythmic percussion arrangement with a very cool stuttered vocal sample. The bass soon takes over as it powers through the sound. Beautifully crafted strings and an infectious chord riff on top of fantastic vocal samples put this track firmly in the deep house spectrum where it belongs. Top notch stuff with big floor appeal!
