MARCO MADIA – TOUCAN EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Fresh off the back of his Egret EP, Marco Madia returns with another tantalising cut, this time around he delivers the fantastic two tracker Toucan EP. Marco is a solid, dedicated artist who always dishes out quality sounds. He’s considered with very high regard among his peers and his music is a testament to this. Never one to disappoint, we just know you’re gonna love this latest cut.

Channel-Billed intros with a nice chunky kick drum and crispy offset hi hat that generates a cool steady beat. A deep rumbling bassline soon joins in and we find ourselves locked on to a solid deep house groove filled with warm keys and hypnotic sequences. The track layers up beautifully creating moody textures that will keep the floors moving with ease. A top notch slice that is not to be missed.

Keel-Billed sets out with a very interesting percussion pattern that sets the track up with a cool rhythmic flow. A combination of drums sit tightly packed in the groove and serve as a solid platform for the track. Trippy arpeggio synths bellow out their mesmeric sequences as a subtle bassline sits on the low end. On the break those synths come to life and dish out colourful patterns that blend effortlessly with the deep groove. A definite must have for sure.

ALEX WELLMANN – PEAKY BLINDERS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Santa Cruz de Tenerife based DJ and producer Alejandro Gutiérrez aka Alex Wellmann marks his Piston Recordings debut with the superb Peaky Blinders. Alex has delivered quality cuts for the last number of years across various labels and we’re delighted to have him here with his latest effort. His style focuses in and around house music with slight variations in between, but he consistently lays on the quality in all of his works and this one is no exception.

Peaky Blinders sets off with a distinct kick drum that leaves a nice bassy trail as shuffling percussions add rhythmic spice to the track. A cool house vibe full of distant voices and rich high strings prevails while a deep rumbling bassline shores up the low end. The track manages to muster up a seriously groovy workout with a minimal approach, a top class effort and one that is not to be missed.

Way Back serves up a real tasty house groove with pumping kick drums and bright crispy hi hats leading the way. Tight percussions for up to bring in a cool rhythmic element as urban style vocals add character to the sound. The bassline lurks in the depths providing a solid groove that becomes the mainstay of the track alongside warm chords that crop up throughout. Super stuff that will not disappoint.
