MEND – METROPLEX EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)
January 15th, 2014
Sardinia born DJ and producer Mend makes a debut appearance on piston with this three tracker entitled ‘Metroplex EP’. Mend has been into music from a very early age and has performed all across Europe at various events. He has released on labels like Deep Plastic Records, Vida Recordings and Clatter Records to name just a few.
Firstly we have the title track, ‘Metroplex’ which goes straight to the deeper side from the off with a wonderful well rounded kick and percussion combo. A deep bass rises from the depths to captivate the sound and settles in for a hell of a ride. Some quality FX add texture to the sound and very cool synth work sits well alongside the odd chord, sublime stuff!
‘After On The Roof’ keeps well within the realms of deep house goodness as on the intro a brilliant synth drone sits behind a cool kick and percussion arrangement. The bass soon follows and gives the track a new depth with hypnotic qualities. Subtle FX ease their way through giving the impression of a vocal sample which is very cool indeed. Top notch stuff!
‘Watergate’ sets the grooves flowing with a very cool intro including some retro styled percussions. The bassline fires up the track to perfection as it cascades through the sound. Cool vocal samples and simple one hit synths in just the right amounts add textures to the sound. Wonderful deep house vibes here, not to be missed.
