DANIEL RAY – TINKER (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Daniel Ray returns to Piston Recordings with deep and sultry vibes of Tinker. We last saw this guy back in October 2015 with Dirty Laugh before heading over to Eyepatch Recordings in early 2016 with Petal. Daniel spreads his expertise over many genres with deep house and chill being his most active genres, today we see him with his deep house mode in full effect.

Tinker invites us into a world filled with moody deep house vibes. A nice live sounding drum arrangement leads the way as surreal piano keys add to the mesmerizing atmospherics. Deep, warm and lush basses dig deep into your soul and you soon find yourself totally hooked on the groove. A thought provoking slice of deep house grooves that is a definite must have.

It’s OK To Smile intros with a nice chunky kick drum with cool shuffling hi hats and percussions building up forming into a solid rhythmic groove. Deep resonating basses come through to beef up the sound in contrast to the surreal synth shots and quality FX. The deepness continues and we are lost in a world full of strangely melancholic sounds that draw us in, making us want more. A wonderfully crafted slice that will be the perfect fodder for those late night sessions.

October 2014 saw A Numbers Game perform well and on top of that he featured in several compilations from the Bonzai stable.

Mirrors sets out with a smooth chord structure that just oozes late night house vibes. Bright and crispy hats come through and join up with a cool drum arrangement as various other key elements are introduced. The keys go through various stages as they are twisted and contorted with expert precision. A cool plucky bassline keeps the low end groove flowing in this beautifully constructed slice of deep organic house.

Under intros with a very cool kick and hat combi that could have come straight off a high end drum kit. Various percussive elements begin to layer up as orchestral wind instruments lurk in the background. A big plucky, cello sounding bass dances along the groove while simple key structures fill the gaps. The track gives off a very live sounding vibe that will definitely get the floors moving with its big sounds.
