Piston Recordings is back on plastic with its third vinyl outing. “Ghetto Tales EP” delivers four superb deep house cuts from top quality artists including label boss Rogerio Martins, JR From Dallas, Dimitry Liss and J.Cub.
First up is Piston head honcho Rogerio with his wonderfully deep “We Need To”. This track gets right down to business with a super tight arrangement filled with chunky kicks and crispy hats. It’s hard to sit still as the track builds with suave deep house chords, cool vocal samples and later on sweeping pads that binds the track up brilliantly.
J.Cub aka UK based DJ and producer Jacob Kelly debuts on Piston with the deeply delightful “Don’t Stop”. The track has a very distinct deep flavour form the off, cool snares are accompanied with equally cool vocal samples and a throbbing bassline that will have any floor shuddering. A strong solid groover with a gritty edge, top stuff.
The very popular Dimitry Liss is up next with his multi faceted track “Pimptastic Waterloo”. Dimitry has a knack for combing raw, urban vibes and deep house grooves, which he does brilliantly. Cool and sophisticated house chords are married with a very street fuelled beat with a host of classic vocal samples thrown in, superb!
JR From Dallas aka Jerome Asselin completes this package with the energetic “Down Society”. Deep house vibes are evident but with an injection of pure energy which gives it a unique flavour. Lots going on here with a tight arrangement tying things up beautifully. The bassline pounds the senses and distant vocal sounds add texture to the vibe, top notch!
