Satour aka Satur returns to Piston with Disconnect EP and is joined by fellow DJ, producer, remixer and singer David Van Bylen. We last caught a glimpse of Satour on Piston back in September 2015 when he joined forces with Pandeo on their debut Kindel. Heavily influenced by 70’s rhythm and groove this guy definitely knows how to work a sound and bring rhythms to life, great to see him back once more. David debuts on Piston and brings a very diverse set of skills that allows him to move between many styles and genres. He has DJed at top venues and played with top jocks from around the world. On the production front he has worked with many great artists and his work as a composer and producer transcends the boundaries of pop and dance music, having signed several soundtracks for documentaries, short films, commercials and TV shows, and even movies.

Almost 8 months on from the release of his album Artificial Star, Australia’s Audio Noir sets out his stall once more and invites four top quality remixers to do their thing with his track From London To Moscow. The original version delivered a solid progressive house groove and we’ve no doubt that these four remixes will do that justice.

Srinivas debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic three track Profound EP. For the last couple of years Srinivas has been delighting with some superb tracks having appeared on labels like Sensoria Records, Electronic Tree and Low Pressings. Good to have him on board at BP and hopefully we’ll see more from him soon. Profound is a deep progressive grooving track that will sit beautifully in any late night set with its lush tones and captivating nature. A droning bass is the big player here as it hooks you in while the cascading arps and fleeting melodies give our imagination lots to work with. Underneath the complex synths and FX we have a solid drum section that drives the track with a solid rhythm. Excellent stuff not to be missed.

Innovative Argentine DJ and producer Sebastian Busto debuts on our Green Martian imprint with the superb Temptation which features a wonderful vocal from fellow Buenos Aires native Paula Melicci. The Original Mix sets out with a cool percussion led intro before a nice and solid kick drum joins in. A lush offset bass comes through and gives the track a nice classic feel as those drums continue to build up a steady flowing rhythm. Warm pads float overhead as various one shot synths come in to tease us. The break throws up a real smooth acoustic guitar riff over a fantastic vocal from Paula that drips with charm and sophistication. A stand out track with a stunning vocal you will not want to miss.

Move Around sets out with a nice pumping kick drum and a pulsing bass that sits lurking on the low end. Shuffling hats make for a steady rhythmic flow as retro house stabs come through alongside a raspy synth and some cool vocal snippets. The track holds a superb deep house groove that builds and builds until you have no choice but to hit the floor and get dancing.

Close To My Heart is one of those tracks that will quickly fall into the ‘I gotta drop this one tonight’ category. Pounding kick drums and crispy hi hats alongside tight percussions make for a solid rhythmic groove. A subtle yet hugely effective bassline lurks on the low end ready to pounce. The track gives off a retro vibe as cool vocal snippets come through, but it’s the layers of bass that make this one special as well as background organs that tease all the way through. A truly epic slice of deep and groovy house that will most definitely not disappoint.
