Piston Recordings was born in 2007 out of the hands of Rogério Martins, Managing Director, A&R and Artist, to fill the void in Portugal’s independent dance music labels dedicated to young and fresh new talent.
In Piston Recordings it’s not all about the music. It’s also about growing and nurturing a family of artists with their music and establishing strong bonds with them. Does not matter if its Deep House, Techno, Chillout or whatever you want to call it, to us what matters is the people behind it.
Today Piston continues to deliver it’s promise and is always looking out for new and uprising talent who need a solid platform to release their music!

EPISODE 40: Fab Code – The Glitch (Mint & Mustard Recordings)
At an early age Fab was bewitched by music. It was around 6 years of age that he was attracted by the sounds of soul, funk and later disco, funky, new-wave playing from his parents jukebox. Rocked to the sounds of Tamla Motown, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Barry White, KC & The Sunshine Band and later Kraftwerk, Human League, Depeche Mode and many others, he built up a strong and diverse music background dominated by rhythm and groove.
With a DJ career spanning from the early 80´s up until now, it was at the end of 2009, Fab decided to move and settle in the United Kingdom !
Freshly landed in Manchester, his new home, he went back to work and returned to the recording studio to relaunch his career as a producer / composer.

EPISODE 42: Kevin Cheung – Push (Bonzai Basiks)
Despite being born into a conservative Chinese family, Kevin Cheung defied all rules and expectations and from a young age set on the path to become a serious player in electronic music, embarking on a 10 year journey to hone his art into the weapon it is today.
Debuting in the city of Hong Kong, Kevin subsequently travelled to the UK to learn the art of production and DJing, after completing a degree in audio engineering at OIART, Kevin moved to the capital of Canada’s nightlife to take his music to the next level. He quickly established himself as a serious player, earning his first weekly residency alongside DJ Mark Oliver. Opening and closing weekly for Mark with 3 hour sets, Kevin Cheung had the opportunity to hone his art to perfection alongside one of Toronto’s most influential DJs.
Building on this success, Kevin landed several residencies in Toronto and in 2010 began collaborating with other upcoming producers. Kevin also works as sound designer and editor for the Ontario Arts Council which funded a documentary on the house music scene, the Toronto Sounds Project.
This release comes with the original mix plus three remixes from Markus Ilgner, Gr-oy and Adrian S featuring Yisell Sanchez.
