RECENT POSTS: Dimitry Liss
Dimitry Liss is now a very regular and popular fixture at Piston. Here he shows off his latest works via a superb four tracker entitled “Electric Boogaloo Street Tapes” complete with awesome track titles!
First up we have deep organic vibes with “Pimptastic Waterloo” which intros with a cool filtered percussion and count in before getting into a classic electro type arrangement. This track oozes street and is backed up with an array of classic vocal samples and some classy deep house keys, absolutely pimptastic indeed!
“Electromagnetic Cheerleader” sends out a powerful deep groove with a superb bassline over a true house styled drum arrangement. Warm, lush keys are a big focus here but the vocal work is outstanding as it brings the vibe to life and forces you to move, top stuff and a track that will see a lot of attention for sure.
“Chocolate Dealer” raises the bar and the tempo with a much more upbeat and club fuelled vibe. Cool, crisp hats and real thumpy kick build up a steady rhythm. The bassline thunders in and brings with it a cool funky undertone, the vocals and FX add a nice flavour rounding up a stunning slice of house music. One to watch!
“Fluffernutter Buttercup” takes us deeper into the vibe with a strong and solid deep house groove. Real nice rolling bassline with accompanying drums and percs keep the rhythm flowing. Dimitry’s talents in vocal cutting, sampling and arranging really shine through here, simply stunning!
Dimitry gets his shuffle on once again with his next three track release “The What If Device”. His last few releases came out of the home of deep house, Piston Recordings, today he returns to Eyepatch with more of his quality deep vibes.
First up is the title track “The What If Device”, the intro has a tight kick and crisp modulated hats with a classic vocal sample making an appearance. The chunky bassline comes through and deep house chords add texture with lots of vocal samples adding flavour. Another fine example of deepness that will fill a lot of boxes.
“Need Ya Babe” kicks off with a heavy bass drum and filtered synths meandering through the arrangement. Super sharp percussions are a cool contrast here with a great vocal throughout taking the tune up a notch. The track breaks down midway with that vocal standing out beautifully alongside the chords. Sublime stuff yet again from Dimitry.
“With Out You” showcases Dimitry’s talents on arrangement, the kicks and percussions give off a bouncy vibe with the hats being prominent. Nice high pitched strings and the blippy bassline work well together. A superb vocal dominates the break as a phased type synth brings up the rear. Top stuff for the deep house floors.
And here’s part two of Victor Maximiliano dj set for Bonzai Basik Beats!

This first installment comes with original tracks and remixes by Kerri Chandler, DJ Sneak, Mark Farina, Detroit Swindle, Hector Couto, Rick Wade, Shades Of Gray, Joss Moog, Jordan Peak, Alex Agore and several others!
Portuguese deep vibes guru Jose Reis aka Accatone returns to Eyepatch with a fine slice of house goodness all wrapped up with some lush vocals and groovy keys. “You Know I Love Her” comes with a top class remix from none other than Dimitry Liss.
The original mix is one of those moments where you cannot help yourself but move to the groove, the rhythms are super smooth with cool, crisp hats and claps backed up with a nice subtle kick. Wonderful keys flow all over this track with an added measure of funk thrown in, but the big attraction is sure to be the vocals, real smooth with an almost jazz feeling, top stuff.
At the remix controls is a very busy man indeed, with productions and remixes coming thick and fast Dimitry Liss adds his magic touch to this track with his She Loves You Too Remix. Straight away we are drowning in deep house flavours with a brilliant kick and percussion arrangement, this fits perfectly with a stomping bassline. The great thing about this remix is it’s contrast to the original, while we have a male vocal on the original telling us how he loves someone, we have a female vocal here telling us how she loves him back, great concept and one that will for sure be a hit with many jocks and clubbers alike.
Purveyor of the finest deep house grooves Dimitry Liss delivers yet another slice of goodness for our pleasure with a little help from the awesome vocals of Kevin Bassett on “Nothing In Particular”. This track also comes backed up with a superb remix!
The original mix kicks off in true Dimitry style with a very unique shuffle style goin on. We get down to business soon after with a sublime synth chord that just oozes deep house. Cool strong and steady groove with a very catchy bassline and rhythmic percussions. The shining star here of course is the outstanding vocals of Kevin Barrett, soulful, sultry, sensual and funky! The lyrics are an absolute joy to listen to and they tell a cool interesting story, a must have in any club playlist.
Czech DJ and producer Michal Schwa and Australian DJ and producer Nick West make up the talented duo of Shades Of Gray. This duo have a very impressive list of releases and remixes and have had their own tracks remixed by the cream of the crop in house music. Here the guys have created a simply stunning remix, they have chopped the vocal beautifully and the arrangement allows it to stand out well. The track takes on a much more deep tech approach with the deep bassline contrasting well with a real cool house chord and some chunky often grungy synths. A wonderful array of FX adds texture with an acid blip or two filtering through, awesome stuff!
