Based in the UAE, Russian born artist Dimitry Liss graces the shores of Piston Recordings with his new cut “Downside Swindle EP” which is backed up with super remixes. Having signed a new exclusive deal with Bonzai, it’s clear that this guy has a lot offer and this EP is testament to that.
Kicking off with the original mix of “Into The Night”, a deep funky slice of pure house, excellent bassline with a very laidback groove and a very effective continuous organ synth hypnotises the mind, add into this a really cool vocal and you’ve got a track that will hold up in any club.
First up on remix duty is Portuguese deep house star Accatone aka Jose Reis with his remix of “Into The Night”. Jose is heavily involved with Piston along with the founder and close friend Rogerio Martins. The remix kicks off quite minimal but soon builds to an awesome house vibe with the great vocal from the original taking centre stage, deep basses and crisp sharp hats create a sweet groove which will make sure this has a lot of plays.
Pistons head honcho Rogerio Martins returns to the mixing desk after a brief hiatus to deliver the same quality production that keep his label at the forefront of the house scene. His remix of “Into The Night” really is an amazing insight into the deeper side of house. Soulful vibes kick off this remix and the vocal sweeps in and out with some very nifty FX work. Cool organ sound fills the arrangement with a grungy type bass coming in midway, really well crafted remix of the highest standard and sure to hitting the floors big time.
“Killa Dime” Cold Cut Mix is a sublime piece of deep house that really gets the toes tapping, surreal synths dominate with a very cool vocal over a laidback groove. Very impressive production from Dimitry and definitely taking deep house in a different direction.
Finally we have the delectable and funky “Midnight On Wax”, deep funky vibes take control, this tune builds up to a frenzy of awesome house organs and stabs, different vocal one shots from both male and female add a cool texture, late night parties will be queuing this up for a while.
Aiemo aka David Nicosia Longhi takes a detour from his usual chilled out, ambient grooves to deliver a stunning piece of deep tech house. David’s talents shine through with his ability to jump from one genre to the next and he always puts out top notch quality. His latest effort on Eyepatch “Too Many Bubbles” comes with a superb remix from Accatone.
The original mix is a cool laid back affair with lots of deep house and a bit of tech thrown in, nice subtle synth intros the tune with the drums and a thick chunky bass following suit. The delayed piano stands out in this track and adds that deep flavour, some amazing percussions keeps the groove in check.
Portuguese remixer Accatone reworks the original in majestic fashion, retaining the deep vibe while adding in the funk, well crafted instruments slip and slide around this track and keeps up a constant groove, cool FX on the sounds also. Subtle break with a high pitched string and then back into that solid groove, perfect!
After last year’s hit release in Piston Recordings, Brett Lawrence is back with two hot housey tunes, Remember That Jack? and Where You From?. Add a Valeria Croft and an Accatone remix to the potion and you get sonic magic!
Early support from: Figueroa, Infestus, Maceo Plex, Mike Morales, Mirco Violi, Olderic, Paco Osuna, Piek, Rafael Yapudjian, Rees Urban, Rompante, Sasch BBC, Slam, Soul Sway, etc…
Eyepatch continues to go from strength to strength, we’ve been able to capture another fine example of deep house pleasure.
Accatone is the alias of José Reis. He grew up listening to Detroit techno, Chicago house, deep, dub techno and later on to all kinds of world music. With a debut album gaining a lot of support from around the world Jose now gives us a sublime two tracker.
Bring starts off on a kind of dub trip breaking down into a simple yet effective piano chord structure with a cool vocal sample, tight bassline and great percussions tie this whole track together beautifully.
Everything is stripped back to bare minimal sounds with a great hypnotic bass and a raspy distorted vocal on a huge breakdown, tight production which shows real professionalism in music.
Early support and feedback comes from the likes of Sander Kleinenberg, Claude Von Stroke, Gabriel Ananda, Richie Hawtin, Nick & Danny Chatelain, Ken Liu, Merlyn Martin (Subdivisions Global Radio Show), Koma (Jacbri Radio Show/Proton Radio), Deep South Audio (Volcano Radio, Pulzar FM), Andreas Akratos (Re-Think Radio, Night Series), Riyaz Khan (Diversions Radio Toronto), Mikey Breaky (Flirt 101.3FM, Galway) and many more…
