SAVVAS – CRY AWAY (PISTON RECORDINGS)
February 19th, 2014
Greece based DJ and producer Savvas aka Savvas Karabinos debts on Piston with this sublime two tracker entitled ‘Cry Away’. Savvas was born in Chicago and found electronic music in the early nineties. Soon after he discovered the art of DJing and was soon playing all around town at the best clubs and open-air parties. His first production was released in 2000 on Klik Records with many more releases following on labels like Ready Mix Records, Itom Records and Kraak Records to name just a few.
‘Cray Away’ intros with wonderfully lush synth pads with a nice chunky kick and crisp hat combination. The bass soon raises its head and offers a truly deep groove which fills out the sound beautifully. Quality deep house keys make a showing alongside some cool vocal samples, the track whittles down to just the keys on the break creating a brilliant vibe in the process before getting right back into this full on deep ride, great stuff.
‘Vice Versa’ sets off with smooth kicks and flowing percussions. A deep and lush chord takes over the sound as a low bass rides along the rhythm. Vocal samples add a cool vibe with perfectly placed synth keys weighing in. Many different instruments show up in this ever evolving sound which makes this a must for any box.
