RUBBA J – THE NEXT (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Rubba J aka Jan Costermans returns to Piston for more house party goodness with his three tracker entitled The Next. His debut came in 2013 with the fantastic The Art Of Doing Nothing and quickly gained a great amount of support around the circuit. Great to see him back once again and hope to see more of this guy in the future.

The Next intros with a cool house flavour that builds nicely as various deeper sounds converge. Chunky kicks pound out a solid groove and are accompanied by a tight percussion arrangement complete with sharp hats and snappy snares. Lush deep house chords faded in and out of the groove as subtle keys fill in the background. The bass sits perfectly on the low end and lurks ominously with its warm tones that really keeps the track on course. The break throws the focus squarely on that superb bassline before we get thrust right back to the main groove for the duration. Brilliant stuff that you will not want to miss.

Detroit Soul Searchers intros with a cool percussion rhythm alongside a high pitched string. Big phat kicks soon find their way in and really sets the track off on its pure house journey. A wonderful probing bassline cuts through the sound and dominates the groove perfectly. Cool synth plucks are added and give the groovy rhythm a boost. Classy vocals stand out and offer up a true Garage vibe with solid deep roots. Definitely a floor filler for sure, this one will get the booties shakin’.

Grabbit sets off with a fantastic upbeat kinda vibe as big punchy kicks are met with cool shuffling percussions complete with open hats that gets the rhythm moving nicely. Deep and groovy sounds begin to form up as lush chords are accompanied by rougher edged keys. The bassline just trots along superbly and really allows the upbeat elements to come through much more prominently. A definite must have track that will most definitely notch the party up a gear.

ITALOBROS – ONCE AGAIN (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian DJ and producer duo, ItaloBros, debut on Piston with the fantastic Once Again. These guys are committed to creating unique musical pictures while delivering adrenaline fuelled sounds filled with passion. Always experimenting and looking for new ways to blend sounds, they do not conform to conventional ways. However, they do keep their toes in oldskool vibes with deep and techno influences.

Once Again sets off with a tough edged kick and harsh, jagged hats that cut through the sound beautifully. Tight drums form up and the rhythm lifts off with a little help from a deep probing bass that dances along brilliantly with an upbeat vibe. Cool vocals litter the groove and add character to the sound. The break throws up a retro style synth alongside cool FX on the vocal as a rolling snare takes us back to the main track and that pounding kick and powerful bass combi. Top notch cut from the guys and one that will definitely turn a few heads.

We Get intros with an in your face array of percussions complete with sharp hats and snappy claps that seem to cut through the air like a knife. A nice punchy kick joins in and the groove gets lift off from a playful, gritty bass that carries a very warm analogue sound. At the midway point we get treated to some cool vocals that stand out as well as subtle stabs. The break reels in a smooth deep groovy pad that takes us out and into the main sound for the duration. Super stuff and a must have track in your box.

A product of the heyday of deep house Rick continues to ply his trade through various radioshows with his fresh, soulful and downright dancy sets. Great to see him back with this fantastic offering and we hope to see more in the future.

The Original Mix of Daedalus intros with a tight kick and sharp percussions that build up a flowing rhythmic vibe alongside cool slapped drums. Smooth, soulful keys beckon releasing a full on deep infectious groove that lasts long into the night. The bass offers great depth to the sound and delivers a somewhat laidback approach in contrast to the dancy beats. Cool, heartfelt vocals come through and add to the poignant soulful vibe. A real nice slice of deep here that will get a few heads turning for sure.

Piston head honcho Rogerio Martins delivers his Deep Down Inside Remix. Aside from running the label on a day to day basis, Rogerio certainly knows how to produce the goods. His recent vinyl cut, Otherwise Unknown, shot up the vinyl charts with ease and gained a large support base from across the world with the digital release looking likely to follow suit. Already in 2015 we have seen great things from this guy and rest assured there will be much, much more to come. The remix intros with a nice big pumping kick with sharp claps on the downbeat alongside a fantastic deep bass line. That bass line melds beautifully into the sound and contrasts perfectly with those bright and crispy hats. A solid groove is formed as the layers build and the introduction of smooth, warm keys ramps up the soulful elements. A super tight production that will definitely light up the floors.

Paradox intros with a cool breaks drum arrangement and is soon joined by an array of acid style plucks. Organically charged chords come through resulting in a dark atmospheric vibe that is coupled with high strings resulting in cool contrasting textures. An innovative drum arrangement keeps the groove on track and offers a cool listening experience which you will not want to miss.

With a proven track record on various other labels we have no doubt that this time around we are in for an ass shakin time.

Make You Shake intros with a pounding kick and crystal clear, sharp hats that cut a swath through the powerful bassdrums. A deep, meandering bassline comes through and guides the track well into the deeper realms of house music as cool vocal shots are let loose on the groove. Full bodied chord stabs fade through and bring intoxicating textures along the way. A relentless and hard hitting affair that will definitely deserve a spot in your box.

What I Want comes to life with a cool display of percussions and a distant low end tone fades in slowly before being joined by a superb kick that gets the track on its feet. The bright, open hats become an obsessive trait throughout the sound and hold the dominant position. That bass sits perfectly and delivers a solid groove as cool sweeping pads bring in the house flavours. Wonderfully textured layers are formed using short vocal hits and subtle melodic keys making this a must have cut.
