DEAN CHAPPLE & JAMES DANIELS – LOOK INTO MY EYES FEATURED BY BEATPORT

UK based producer duo Dean Chapple & James Daniels aka Daniel Morris debut on Piston with the superb 2 tracker Look Into My Eyes. The guys met several years ago while working at a high street clothing store in what they’ve both described as a “random meet”, they’ve been friends ever since. Dean started to write his own music around 2007 having started to play around with basic production software, learning as he went through trial and error. He was responsible for getting Daniel interested in music and after releasing a couple of tracks they started to take this music thing much more seriously, and after a trip to Ibiza their minds were made up. Starting off with a tech sound, they soon realised that they wanted to make music that they liked, so they went underground. Now after a raft of releases on several top labels, these guys are riding the crest of a wave with their sound. Delighted to have them on board at Piston and we hope to see more soon.

Now after a raft of releases on several top labels, these guys are riding the crest of a wave with their sound. Delighted to have them on board at Piston and we hope to see more soon.

Look Into My Eyes intros with a cool kick and hat combi with various percussions delivering a steady rhythm. The kicks are beefed up and are joined by a superb bassline that rolls through the sound creating a dancey tech house groove. Metallic chord stabs come through create some excellent textures while a diva-esque vocal adds an extra layer of spice. Top notch grooves for any floor, a must have.

Different Walks sets out with a nice chunky kick drum that delivers a pounding thump and will rattle any sub woofer into submission. On the percussion front a collection of bright crispy hats and rides set up a solid rhythmic flow to the sound. The bassline rolls along on the low end with a deep bouncy groove and is joined by some fantastic layered pads. Cool vocals are scattered throughout and add colour to the sound as that bassline dominates the groove. Superb stuff once more, not to be missed.

TAPEOUT – MAKE ME FEEL GOOD EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

TapeOut aka Italian DJ and producer duo Davide Ercolin and Christian Diaferia debut on Piston with the fantastic three track EP entitled Make Me Feel Good. Christian and Davide began their collaboration in 2013 and have released several tracks on various labels. They possess a passion for music and a desire to express their ideas on both the dancefloor and in their productions. They draw influence from Jazz and Soul and have recently refined their own brand of minimal and deep house. Delighted to have them on board and we hope to see more soon.

Make Me Feel Good sets out with a nice punchy kick drum and bright crispy hi hats alongside a tinkling piano melody. A deep rooted bassline comes in and contrasts with the brighter elements beautifully. Cool vocals deliver a classic groovy vibe that many will recognise, this adds to the bouncy rhythm of the track brilliantly and will definitely get bodies on the floor. A perfectly arranged slice of deep goodness that will spice up any set no doubt.

My Little Children dishes out a wonderful classic vibe right from the get go as chunky kicks are met with smooth chords and a fantastic female vocal. The bassline comes through and takes over with a superb deep groove that flows effortlessly through the sound locking us in with its infectious draw. As the track evolves we are treated to more one shot vocals and a playful FM bass that dances across the groove. Beautifully layered with a tight arrangement making this a definite must have track.

Rounding off this top notch pack we have I Need A Boat Party which intros with a very nice chunky kick and warm chord. A deep and probing bassline joins in and settles the track into its deep house groove for the duration. Cool vocal snippets are scattered through the composition as funky elements begin to emerge in the form of electric guitar licks and some nifty bass guitar alongside pitching keys. Top notch stuff that you’ll not want to miss out on.

VICTOR BERGH – DELTAHOUSE (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Fresh off the back of his last Piston cut – Sot Vaed – Swedish DJ and producer Victor Bergh aka Victor Berghmeister returns with another fine slice of deep house pleasure on his two tracker Deltahouse. Always an exciting time when this guy drops his tunes into the office and this time around is no exception, listen and learn.

The title track Deltahouse intros with a very classy kick drum and hi hat combi, straight away you feel locked into a deep groove and this feeling grows as the layers build. In the background a high string hangs in the air as percussive elements form up. The track breaks to reveal a muffled vocal that yields to more percussions before the beats return along with a warm chord and abyss level basses. The vocal comes to the fore soon after and is accompanied by some dialogue, but the vocal steals the show with its catchy appeal and cool lyrics. An expertly crafted piece that will sit beautifully into the more groovy peak time sets.

Las Legos is up next and sets of with a top notch punchy kick drum and bright crispy hat combi. Percussions start to build all around and form into a solid rhythmic groove that is complimented by some very cool chords and keys. A Barry White-esque vocal comes through adding a sultry tone to the groove. The deep nature of the sound ensures an equally deep groove that oozes sex appeal. The bassline is the icing on the cake here as it struts along playfully and marrying perfectly with the keys. If you’re looking for something to keep the hot and sweaty floors grooving then this is your cut, not to be missed.

On the break we are treated to some expert pitching keys and pads that deliver a surreal edge to the sound before those tight beats and bass return for the duration. An excellent slice of tech and a must have track no doubt.

Marketplace sets off with a very cool synth sound that is soon joined by a punchy kick drum and an array of bright hats and cool percussion patterns. A retro theme comes off the drums and binds beautifully with the quirky nature of the synths as they rise in pitch. The vocals are neither sung nor spoken, a strange mixture of the two and this works perfectly with the sound adding eclectic textures and character. A space age synth appears taking the track to the next level before we get back to the down and dirty of this solid groove. Superb stuff here that offers a sideways look at tech, not to be missed.
