SEBASTIAN TOURT & NATUR – MOVE BIT (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Sebastian Tourt & Natur join forces to deliver their first appearance on Piston Recordings with the superb Move Bit. These guys have generated a wave of support from their previous collabs while venturing into the tech house arena. Natur is a relative newcomer to the scene with several releases spanning a couple of years, while Sebastian has been around for quite a while with numerous top notch cuts over the last 7 years. Two varying degrees of experience on this one with an exciting end result that is sure to get the floors pumping.

Move Bit gets down and dirty with a solid tech house groove right from the off as a classic style kick and hi hat combi take hold. The bass starts to creep in and you know you’re headed straight for the dancefloor. The bulk of the track focuses in on the drums with a cacophony of beautifully sequenced drums layered up into intricate patterns with a live element feel and the spoken vocal adds an extra level of texture. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

Cut Hop is a proper ass shakin’ floor filler with its bouncy rhythmic groove that forces you to move. Nice chunky kicks lead the way against a tight drum section that delivers a smooth rhythmic flow. A wonderful low end sub bass bursts through and is joined by a cool urban rap vocal that fits the theme of the sound perfectly. With a big draw towards the drums and bass there is minimal synth use that manages to add a brighter edge to the sound. A must have track no doubt.

Insomnia delivers a real nice deep house groove that keeps you hooked in for the duration. A tight drum section filled with chunky kick drums and shuffling patterns gets us on to the floors as lush organs cook up a deep house treat. A cool vocal gives an interesting narrative throughout as the bassline is introduced sending the booty’s into overdrive. A fantastic slice with some very tasty drums that will not disappoint.

Plot Twist intros with a chunky kick drum and high string with a cool synth stab coming on the opening bar and throughout. A very cool vocal with heavy FX comes in before the real funkness is delivered via a James Brown-esque style. The bassline keeps the track moving nicely and is joined by some warm keys later on that gives off a smooth deep house groove. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

MARCO MADIA – ASCIDIANS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

In 2006 he moved to Berlin where he got a degree audio engineering and soon started work as a sound designer. He also produces under the pseudonym Flip Morton and his experience has led to working on film soundtracks and exhibitions. This one is Marco’s sixth Piston release and we’ve become accustomed to his quality, something we look forward to hearing more of in the future.

Ascidians takes us deep into the house sound right from the off as muted kicks are joined by dark sounds that rise up from the depths. The kicks get boosted to pounding status and we’re on our way. A deep rumbling bass shores up the low end while warm chords are stabbed into the groove. Throughout the track you continue to find little nuanced sounds that add some wonderful textures to this almost primordial sound that gets you right in the soul. Superb stuff.

Thaliace is a beautifully constructed slice of Summery deep house vibes that would be perfectly at home on a sunkissed terrace just before Sunset. A smooth deep groove is prevalent throughout and it’s filled with warming, lush basses and wonderfully melodic synths. The hypnotic nature will keep you locked on for the duration making this an absolute must have track in your arsenal.

DJ and producer Kenny is renowned the world over and has released a huge amount of quality cuts on many top labels over the years. He is very well respected amongst his peers and has shared the decks with many top names. He is a co-owner of Southpark Records, Old School Department and Glory Touch Records. His style is quite diverse, but he loves to delve into tech house with a distinct oldschool flavour that creates a synergy on the floors.

Overload delivers a minimal tech house cut that will definitely get the floors moving with its infectious rhythms and pumping vibes. The intro boasts a nice and solid kick drum with crispy hi hats on the offset that get the rhythm up to speed. In the background an almost eerie pad dominates and draws our attention. The pads fade and we’re left with a pumping tech house groove with a deep low end and a cool one word spoken vocal. Those pads return in the final third and keeps us hooked for the duration. Top notch stuff indeed and not to be missed.

WTF, translated as text speak for what the fuck, is the perfect reaction to this superb slice of tech house. There will be many clubbers who will exclaim WTF on hearing this cut as it’s one of those tracks that will perk you up and get you straight onto the floor with its fist pumping grooves and cool vocals. A tight drum section ensures a flowing rhythm while on the low end a superb sub does its thing. The vocals create a very cool vibe and are matched in equal coolness by raw acid lines and quirky synth plucks. Brilliant stuff and a must have no doubt.

After appearing on Secrets Of The Trade in 2015 Demarkus delighted us with his full debut – Strung On You, soon after. His sound carries a wonderful deep house flavour and it’s no wonder he’s appeared on many top house labels over the years. We’re delighted to see him back and we just know that this one is gonna rock.

First up we go with the Original Mix straight to the dancefloor, there’s no choice here, the track will force you to move to its solid rhythmic flow while an instantly recognisable diva-esque vocal rings out. The pounding kicks and bright crispy hi hats keep things moving nicely while a deep rooted bass rattles the subs mercilessly. Cool synth chords remain strong throughout, but it’s the vocal that steals the show here. A definite must have for the floors to get down to.

Piston firm favourite Spanish DJ and producer Andres Boned aka Bonetti steps up to the remix desk with a superb rendition that takes us deep into the house sound. His last outing – Pumping Pumping at the start of 2016 proved popular and this one follows suit with its party fuelled sounds. Right from the off we’re instantly dragged towards the floor as that funky bassline does its thing. Big chunky beats are matched with a tight percussions arrangement to deliver a well oiled rhythm that just lights up the groove beautifully. The vocal stands out nicely and adds to the funky nature of the sound. Top notch stuff indeed.

MIRKO GORELLI – HAPPY (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian DJ and producer Mirko Gorelli is back at Piston Recordings with the fantastic two tracker entitled Happy. Mirko joined us with his debut House Culture back in May 2016 and the response was very well received. Having released his first track back in September 2015 Mirko is quickly building a very respectable and impressive catalogue of works. No doubt we’ll be seeing a lot more from this talented artist in the future.

Happy is carried along by a nice and warm sounding kick drum that is broken only by a sharp clap and then some nice and crispy hi hats. The rhythm builds as the shuffling hats take hold and are joined by a cool vocal snippet. A deep rumbling bassline soon takes over and we find ourselves locked into a solid slice of tech house to get down to. Additional vocals deliver a party atmosphere making this a welcome addition for any set.

Release intros with a pumping kick drum and shuffling hi hats and rides that form into a classic style upbeat vibe full of flowing rhythms. A deep probing bassline delivers a solid low end that will get those asses shakin no doubt. The cool vocals will be recognisable and give the track a cool clubby vibe while high strings and surreal pads create wonderful textures. After a short break the track comes back with a vengeance ready to take control of the floors. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.
