Italian DJ and producer Hermann Dius aka Emmanuel De Caprio returns to Piston with UK Movement which also features three top notch remixes. His debut came back in May 2015 with Baht which also appeared on Bonzai Progressive’s Tech House Toolbox 4 back in the Summer of 2015.
The Original Mix intros with a very cool kick and hat combi that really starts to get the rhythmic juices flowing. Short vocal hits litter the sound as synths stabs fade through and lead us up to the deep tech fuelled bassline that dominates the sound. As the layers build we find more vocals come through which gives the track a cool upbeat vibe. A quite minimal sound with a huge punch that will definitely get the floors on the move.
Bonetti aka Spanish DJ and producer Andres Boned is back at Piston with another of his superb remixes. Since 2014 we’ve had four fantastic releases with this guy, as well as a few remixes in between. His latest offering – Pumping Pumping EP continues to perform well on the circuit, which is no surprise really given that the tracks are perfect dancefloor fodder. The remix intros with a nice crispy hi-hat that is accompanied by a sharp clap and snare. A chunky kick joins the party and we set off deep into a house groove with the introduction of some warm chords. The track breaks to reveal a groovy bassline and a superb bright piano melody which take over the sound for the duration. Quirky counting vocal snippets are spread over the track and timed to perfection. A host of cool drums dish out a solid rhythm and set the scene for this epic funky groover.
Jader Ag aka Italian born, Canada based DJ and producer Jader Agnolin returns to Piston on remix duty after his debut – Triggs back in July 2015. Here, the remix intros with a nice solid kick drum and hi hat combi before a raw, deep bassline takes over. Cool percussions layer up and we soon get locked into a very smooth rhythm that flows effortlessly out of the speakers. Short synth stabs are met with cool vocals and give the track a nice tech flavour. But it’s the bassline that wins the day here, it stands out beautifully with its probing tentacles looking for new orifices to invade. Another fine slice of tech you will not want to miss.
Italian artist Daniele Kama returns to Piston Recordings on remix duties after a bit of a hiatus. We last saw him way back in 2012 with She Appears EP and since then he has shown up on Eyepatch Recordings and Sounds R Us Recordings. Daniele remains a highly respected artist in the world of electronica having gained lots of support from a host of international DJ’s and working with many other fine artists on various record labels. The remix intros with a cool percussion led affair. Shuffling hats and various other drum themed sounds converge alongside the chunky kicks to deliver a solid flowing rhythm. Soon enough the bassline arrives and transforms the track beautifully with its infectious warm glow. In the background we are faced with some very cool FX indeed, some come direct from the cosmos with their surreal spacey vibes and alien themes. The track suddenly breaks to reveal an ear splitting high pitch tone as counting vocals go off over the top before the drums kick back in and we are left with a superb laidback tech groove. Top notch stuff.

Italian DJ and producer Ivan Masa debuts on Eyepatch with the sublime three tracker ‘From London EP’ which also comes with two superb remixes to whet your appetite. Ivan grew up with music all around him so it’s no wonder his path led him to become involved in music. Having played at many gigs around his hometown Ivan soon found his niche within the early Acid sounds of the eighties. With successful releases across many labels we are delighted to welcome this great talent in the Bonzai family.
‘From London’ is up first and sets off on a smooth deep grooving ride as chunky kicks and sharp hats take over from a cool percussion led intro. Surreal chords are accompanied by a high pitched synth adding cool textures to the sound. The deep bass lifts the track up a notch and is soon joined by some vocal samples and a round of grungy synths, superb stuff!
The Original Mix of ‘Old School In My Skin’ has a very cool retro theme as expected from the title. A single high string is joined by a percussion line and a very cool vocal sample. Big phat kicks soon come through as a groovy bassline takes shape alongside funky house synths. The main break delivers a cool chord sequence with some quality snares taking us into each section before blasting back into this deep fuelled groove, top notch stuff!
Italian DJ and production duo 2Manyfold aka Francesco Fortini and Giovanni Martino are up on remix duty on ‘Old School In My Skin’. The guys have worked with Ivan in the past and have themselves released a multitude of track across many labels. Here they transform the original into a full on deep fuelled masterclass in house music. Nice and smooth snare driven intro with cool synths making their mark. The kicks really set the track up perfectly for the journey ahead with the vocal samples fitting in perfectly. The track evolves beautifully as a big bass sound bursts through to dominate. On the break a very well crafted synth sequence shines through before some smooth chords take over, excellent workout from these guys and definitely one to watch!
‘Sweet In My Heart’ is up next and intros with a fantastic vocal which soon leads to a massive kick and bass combo that will pump any floor. Big and bouncy grooves abound and as the sound progresses we get some funky synths and vocals which add huge character to the proceedings. Big tune here and a must for any box.
The Italian connection continues as Daniele Kama steps up to remix ‘Sweet In My Heart’. Daniele has already carved a cool niche with his sound and has appeared on the home of deep house, Piston Recordings, with his EP ‘She Appears’ in 2012 as well as other remixes on various Bonzai imprints. Here he keeps the deep grooves flowing with a stunning display of sounds. Nice and smooth intro as a sweeping synth is accompanied by a single clap, soon a huge kick appears and is suitably coupled with a pounding deep bass. The vocals are prominent throughout and on the main break they marry well with a dry, sublime melody. A sure fire big hitter here with all the qualities to rip up any floor.

The sampler comes with four original tracks and remixes from Dimitri Liss, Nasrawi, Wonji, Daniele Kama, Project KF and Crocy.
Now in its third instalment, Eyepatch delves into the vaults to deliver another ram packed exclusive vinyl filled with top quality deep house grooves. Four top class tunes with tracks and remixes from some of the best artists Eyepatch has to offer. A must have for any vinyl junkie and your decks are gonna love it!
First up we journey into the sounds of “Backstage Queen” from Dimitry Liss & Nasrawi, both these guys have appeared on this series before and we just had to get them back again. This track is a deep house groove that grabs you and holds you in its grip for the duration. Sublime deep bass and a well crafted arrangement are held together with a quite brilliant vocal sequence throughout the track.
Daniele Kama’s remix of Wonji’s “Convince Me” is up next with a more tribal feel, lots of bongos doing the rounds and the vocal takes control when in effect. A deep bassline commands throughout and on the break some classic samples are evident, perfect fodder for vinyl and already a firm favourite on the circuit.
The awesome talents of Dimitry Liss gives us his Re-Rub of Project KF’s “Priority Of Night”, and taking things to a deeper level. Cool sharp hats accompanied with a tight kick set up a solid groove. The sounds are arranged brilliantly with a few added vocal samples thrown in, monster tune for any floor.
Crocy’s “Bouquet” carves out a cool groove with a laidback approach to deep tech house. Subtle intro with percussions building the rhythm and the bass shining through for an awesome ride. On the break funky keys make an appearance changing the landscape slightly and then straight back to a solid deep groove, top stuff.

Fresh from the superb “From My Soul EP” Wonji returns with another huge soul funkin groover with a few awesome remixes.
The original mix of “Convince Me” is an amazing trek into the world of house with hints of tech and funk. Well structured sounds from the percs to the kicks and the brilliant guitars to a spoken vocal that takes control of the waves. Top class stuff that is sure to be a hit with its upbeat vibe.
Portugal’s own Accatone is first up with his Back In The Day Remix. Accatones unique style shines through bringing a deeper slide to the original. Tight arrangement on the percs and kicks with wonderful organs and synth stabs. There is a retro element here that comes to the fore with a brilliant trumpet riff, class!
Daniele Kama is up next with a more tribal feel, lots of bongos doing the rounds and the vocal takes control when in effect. A deep bassline commands throughout and on the break some classic samples are evident.
Popular remixer Jimmy Galle provides the final remix here and a stellar job it is. Straight to the floor intro with a huge rising effect kick us into a bouncing bassline, a sinister vocal comes through now and again and this gives a darker edge. On the break a melancholic melody appears and that massive riser comes in, kicking back in to a steady groove with some surreal sounds bringing this tune from the depths to a much more lighter feel, top stuff here.
Piston Recordings has come a long way and gained the support of top jocks all over the world since its creation in 2007. Now in its fifth year, and with an ever increasing artist roster, the quality continues to flow in style.
