DANNY EM – MAS HOUSE QUE ESTO EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Danny eM is back with another round of quality house music in the form of his Mas House Que Esto EP that we just love here at Piston. His last outing – Voces EP – was very well received and no doubt this one will grab a lot of attention also. Based in Lima, Peru Danny is influenced by Chicago House and New York Garage. He has released on Audionumb in Peru and on Form and Function in the UK. We’re delighted to have him back once more.

CHRIS RAVEN – I KNOW YOU LOVE ME TOO – ALFONSO MUCHACHO REMIX (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Chris Raven’s 1998 smasher, I Know You Love Me Too, gets the remix treatment on our next 25 year celebrations release. The talented Alfonso Muchacho is the artist in the hot seat this time around and he delivers a sublime effort that compliments the original beautifully. This one marked Chris Raven’s debut on the scene and featured a superb, deep progressive groove alongside a sultry, melancholic vocal. Originally appearing in 1997, Bonzai Trance Progressive snapped up this hit a year later putting this special sound into a worldwide audience making it an instant classic. Remixes from Bruce Norris and Van Bellen sparked a decade’s long debate as to which was better, both stand out as greats in our opinion. Chris went on to release several other top notch cuts on BTP putting his work firmly within the realms of retro classics status.

CORTEX THRILL – UTOPIA (COLONIZATION) (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

After a hugely successful return to Bonzai Progressive with Mitochondria in 2016, we welcome Cortex Thrill back in 2017 with the superb Utopia which features two top notch remixes from Thorin and Fabian Jakopetz. Regarded with high esteem in the music production world Cortex Thrill’s style and sound helped shape an entire scene back in the early nineties. Throughout the years the Cortex Thrill sound has moved effortlessly with the times, right up to today it brings a unique dynamic that reverberates beautifully, slotting into progressive sets with ease. The Cortex Thrill studio remains a hub of activity with lots of work being done not only for Bonzai but for Soul Access and for the Croatian electronic music scene in general. Lots more to come out of Croatia so stay tuned for more.

VALLEPHARON featuring DAMMY ARI – GIVE ME YOUR LOVE FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Valleraphon debuts on Bonzai Progressive alongside Dammy Ari with the stunning Give Me Your Love. Valleraphon is a multi artist collaboration between Irish DJ, producer – and former member of successful Irish rock band In Tua Nua, Martin Clancy, Greek producer and music production lecturer Vasileios Gourgourinis, Italian DJ, producer and Bonzai regular Giuliano A.L. and Carlow, Ireland rapper, singer Dammy Ari. An unlikely bunch in some regards, the age range is from 20 to 50 (we’re not saying who is closer to 50 though). This group of talented artists have bandied together to create something quite unique in the electronic music world. The range of expertise on show is staggering and goes some way to reflect the level of quality in the sound. This is a truly exciting venture that will break through boundaries as it explores new ways of creating electronic music. We are proud to present this to the world and have no doubt it will attract a lot of interest. Enjoy!

BOYARD – AFTER HOURS FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Belfast based DJ, producer and house music aficionado Francis Keeley aka Boyard debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb two tracker entitled After Hours. Great to be on it mate! Thanks very much glad your liking the tracks. Francis (or Fra to his mates) has always wanted to make his own music, a lot of his friends were DJing and producing and he knew he wanted this also. He started to learn everything about producing around 6 years ago and in 2016 he saw his first release on Sneaky followed by top cuts on Melodymathics and Trend Records. His tracks have not only been championed by jocks from all over the world but have been remixed by the likes of Orlando Voorn, Melodymann, J Garcia and Groove Riddim to name a few. In August 2016 he played his debut DJ gig in Chalet, Berlin and has not looked back since. He draws inspiration from deep, jazzy melodic house music as well as smooth funk and disco too. When he is making music his influences range from Glen underground, Rick wade, Moodymann, Agnes, Jovonn and Ron Trent among others. For the future he plans to keep bringing out bigger tracks and put more time into DJing since he has now got the bug. It’s great to have him on board here at Piston and we’re sure we’ll be seeing more of this talented artist in the future.
