SATOUR FEATURING DAVID VAN BYLEN – DISCONNECT EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Satour aka Satur returns to Piston with Disconnect EP and is joined by fellow DJ, producer, remixer and singer David Van Bylen. We last caught a glimpse of Satour on Piston back in September 2015 when he joined forces with Pandeo on their debut Kindel. Heavily influenced by 70’s rhythm and groove this guy definitely knows how to work a sound and bring rhythms to life, great to see him back once more. David debuts on Piston and brings a very diverse set of skills that allows him to move between many styles and genres. He has DJed at top venues and played with top jocks from around the world. On the production front he has worked with many great artists and his work as a composer and producer transcends the boundaries of pop and dance music, having signed several soundtracks for documentaries, short films, commercials and TV shows, and even movies.

VICTOR BERGH – DELTAHOUSE (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Fresh off the back of his last Piston cut – Sot Vaed – Swedish DJ and producer Victor Bergh aka Victor Berghmeister returns with another fine slice of deep house pleasure on his two tracker Deltahouse. Always an exciting time when this guy drops his tunes into the office and this time around is no exception, listen and learn.

The title track Deltahouse intros with a very classy kick drum and hi hat combi, straight away you feel locked into a deep groove and this feeling grows as the layers build. In the background a high string hangs in the air as percussive elements form up. The track breaks to reveal a muffled vocal that yields to more percussions before the beats return along with a warm chord and abyss level basses. The vocal comes to the fore soon after and is accompanied by some dialogue, but the vocal steals the show with its catchy appeal and cool lyrics. An expertly crafted piece that will sit beautifully into the more groovy peak time sets.

Las Legos is up next and sets of with a top notch punchy kick drum and bright crispy hat combi. Percussions start to build all around and form into a solid rhythmic groove that is complimented by some very cool chords and keys. A Barry White-esque vocal comes through adding a sultry tone to the groove. The deep nature of the sound ensures an equally deep groove that oozes sex appeal. The bassline is the icing on the cake here as it struts along playfully and marrying perfectly with the keys. If you’re looking for something to keep the hot and sweaty floors grooving then this is your cut, not to be missed.

SATOUR FT. DAVID VAN BYLEN – DISCONNECT EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Satour aka Satur returns to Piston with Disconnect EP and is joined by fellow DJ, producer, remixer and singer David Van Bylen. We last caught a glimpse of Satour on Piston back in September 2015 when he joined forces with Pandeo on their debut Kindel. Heavily influenced by 70’s rhythm and groove this guy definitely knows how to work a sound and bring rhythms to life, great to see him back once more. David debuts on Piston and brings a very diverse set of skills that allows him to move between many styles and genres. He has DJed at top venues and played with top jocks from around the world. On the production front he has worked with many great artists and his work as a composer and producer transcends the boundaries of pop and dance music, having signed several soundtracks for documentaries, short films, commercials and TV shows, and even movies.

Disconnect intros with an upfront, upbeat tech house vibe complete with a nice thumping kick drum, crispy hats and a very cool vocal that gets laced with an array of even cooler FX. A deep probing bassline comes through and sets the track up for a groovy ride into tech town as the drums form up to bring a solid rhythm. On the break we are treated to some expert pitching keys and pads that deliver a surreal edge to the sound before those tight beats and bass return for the duration. An excellent slice of tech and a must have track no doubt.

Marketplace sets off with a very cool synth sound that is soon joined by a punchy kick drum and an array of bright hats and cool percussion patterns. A retro theme comes off the drums and binds beautifully with the quirky nature of the synths as they rise in pitch. The vocals are neither sung nor spoken, a strange mixture of the two and this works perfectly with the sound adding eclectic textures and character. A space age synth appears taking the track to the next level before we get back to the down and dirty of this solid groove. Superb stuff here that offers a sideways look at tech, not to be missed.
