VICTOR BERGH – SOT/VAED (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Swedish DJ and producer Victor Bergh aka Victor Berghmeister returns to Piston with the fantastic two track Sot/Vaed. Victor is no stranger to Piston having released Leaving Yous back at the start of 2014 as Victor Berghmeister. Great to see him back once more and we hope to see more from him soon.

Sot intros with a nice chunky kick drum and a superb warbling, ever shifting wah wah type synth that delivers a cool tech house groove. The synths sit perfectly with the vocals that find themselves embroiled in a myriad of FX that create some very cool textures in the sound. A subtle and very deep bass sits on the low end as that dominating synth line takes control. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Vaed sets out with a cool percussive driven intro filled with shuffling snares and rides and crispy hats that blend nicely into a smooth rhythmic flow. Swirling synths rise up and lead us to the thumping kick drums and a brilliant synth chord pad that begins its twisting journey with gusto. Cool house styled vocals filter through as the tech house groove carries us along for an epic ride that will leave a sweet taste making you want more and more, not to be missed.

JADER AG – ROAD 801 EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Canada based DJ and producer Jader Agnolin aka Jader Ag returns to Piston with the superb Road 801. Last time around we saw this talented artist on remix duties for Hermann Dius’ UK Movement, also on Piston, back at the end of 2015. Prior to this he debuted back in the Summer of the same year with Triggs EP with appearances on Complex Textures, Hi Fi Stories and Wasabi Recordings in between. An on-the-rise artist with a steady building solid collection of grooves, it’s great to see him back for more at PR.

If you like your house deep (just like we do) then Road 801 will surely have you cutting up the rugs with its deep rooted grooves that will take you late into the night. Nice and big chunky kick drums are paired with a superb low end bass that is perched beautifully within the sound for maximum effect. Cool chords are interwoven throughout and really bring a smooth soulful vibe to the sound. Some fantastic classic style vocals have been added that will definitely get the crowd moving making this a must have track that will not disappoint.

Hezo is a deep contrasting track that takes us way beyond the boundaries of deep house. A solid wall of bass greets us right from the get go as bright crispy hi hats join the punchy kicks. In the background we find a myriad of subtle percussion elements that build up a steady rhythm. On the break a distant voice comes through adding an air of mystery before they move up top bringing a tribal feeling to the sound. An excellent slice that will sit perfectly in those late night smoky venues.

Rouge goes straight into a cool funky kinda groove from the off as pumping kick drums are met with slicing hi hats and a wonderful warm chord stab. A bouncing bassline is introduced that works flawlessly with the keys creating a smooth swaying dancefloor groove. A tight percussion section keeps the rhythm flowing while on the break we get treated to a surreal sequence that draws us in before we get churned back into the main groove. Fantastic deep grooves you do not want to miss.

AN-BEAT – KINGZ EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Andrés Tamayo aka An-Beat debuts on Piston with the fantastic three tracker Kingz EP. Since 2009 Andres has built up a solid electronic music profile with a vast back catalogue on many labels. It was 2007 when he started to use local musical influences such as House, Tech House, Techno and Minimal which led to him starting to produce his own sounds in 2008. His music has appeared on the likes of Witty tunes, 1605, Deeperfect and Neurotraxx Recordings among others and has been supported by top artists such as Claude Vonstroke, DJ Sneak, Maximiljan, Richie Hawtin, Joris Voorn and Karotte to name just a few. He is currently owner of Moustache label along with Camilo Do Santos.

Kingz intros with crisp snappy snare on top of a muted kick drum and bright percussions before a fantastic punchy kick powers through to take control. A cool house vibe ensues with a playful groove to get the feet shuffling to the beat. Tight drums and percussions lead the way becoming a big focus in the track and take us to the break where we’re met with a display of various sounds and cool vocal snippets. A rattling snare roll takes us out of the break and slams us back into full on mode complete with that superb probing bassline. Top notch stuff and a definite must have track.

If you’re after deep edgy late night grooves then I Am is the track for you. A cool flowing rhythm is established from the outset as crispy bright percussions form up. Nice and chunky kick drums deliver a powerful punch and join forces with a wonderfully crafted bassline to take over the track. The drums tighten up and you will be forced to move to the groove. On the break a cool vocal delivers a self professing narrative that will captivate and intrigue. Super smooth basses shore up the low end bring depth and texture to the sound. Excellent stuff not to be missed.

Eats takes us on a cool tech fuelled ride filled with tight drums and quirky basses to whet the appetite. Punchy kicks join in as the layers build into a solid rhythmic flow. A wonderful moving bassline shows up in all its analog glory alongside a really cool vocal that gives a great character to the sound. This one will definitely do the damage on the floors with its tight solid grooves.

ORAA – ROCKETSHIP EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Jurgi Oraa Diaz aka Oraa returns to Piston with the superb two track Rocketship EP. This guy always delivers the goods and judging by his last outing back in January 2016 with Time Out For Love, we know we’re in for another tasty treat. Rocketship blasts off with a real nice drum arrangement complete with bright crispy hats and snappy snares. A monster kick drum soon comes through and takes over as cool vocals litter the sound. As if this wasn’t enough to get the floors shakin, we soon find ourselves on the receiving end of a superbly chunky bassline that drives the groove beautifully. Gritty synths come into play but soon make way for a much smoother spacey kinda hook as a high pitched string hangs over head. A big, brash slice of tech house grooves you do not want to miss.

Back In Time intros with a classic punchy kick and hat combo that builds into a feet shuffling rhythmic groove. Cool vocals deliver a raw, urban vibe as a superb bassline weaves its way through the track taking us on along for the ride. Quirky effects build a solid texture in the sound, but the big player here has got to be those fantastic retro styled synth chords that light up the track brilliantly. This one will not disappoint, a must have for sure.

The track gives off a retro vibe as cool vocal snippets come through, but it’s the layers of bass that make this one special as well as background organs that tease all the way through. A truly epic slice of deep and groovy house that will most definitely not disappoint.

Wasting Time is a sublime trek deep into the bowels of house music, and all done in a laid back funky groove kinda style.
