Argentinean DJ and producer Sherr aka German Basualdo debuts on Piston Recordings with the fantastic Los Monjes EP. Since his childhood he developed a passion for the art of sound. His love for the creation of rhythms and melodies grew over time, then he discovered house and fell in love with this rhythm. An obsessive collector always open to new inspirations of house music, he immediately began to understand and create his own music. His DJ sets are always fun, original and full of grooves that have made thousands of Buenos Aires clubbers dance over the years. He has seen releases on Innocent Music, Act Natural Records, Deeper Records, Alboratory, Tip Tap Records and Baile Musik. Great to have him on board at Piston.
Los Monjes intros with a single punchy kick drum and is joined by shuffling hi hats and a deep rooted bassline that fades in from the depths. On the first break subtle keys float in the distance, the ambience is broken by a sharp spoken vocal before the beats return with slicing crispy hi hats in tow. Soft pads stand in contrast to the deep low end basses and the two combine beautifully. A deep and thoughtful slice that will definitely work the floors no doubt.
Whoreel gets right into a tech house fuelled groove made up of superb chunky kick drums and rhythmic percussions. A deep and dark them flows through the groove here which is enhanced by a mysteriously haunting vocal one shot. The break reveals the darker elements even more as a chill runs down your spine thanks to those haunting vibes. Throughout the track a low end bass pad mesmerizes making this a definite must have track.
Redentor delivers a top notch groovy workout complete with tight beats and probing bassline. Dark keys litter the sound while bright and crispy hi hats slice through the lower frequencies. Tech house vibes ooze out of the sound which the floors are gonna love. The break is a sinister affair as those darker sounds combine alongside a mysterious vocal and some expertly crafted sweeping noise. The punchy beats return and lock us in for the duration. Top notch stuff.
