Richie Hawtin, A Day At The Park, Amsterdam 21st July 2012.
Techno pioneer Richie Hawtin plays Piek – Susurros (Efron Remix) from Piston Recordings at the A Day At The Park party in Amsterdam. With an impressive tracklist featuring many great tracks, Susurros fits in the mix beautifully with it’s minimal tech house vibe. Effron has provided a super remix along with other quality remixes on this release. Spanish producer Piek’s music is gaining huge support all over with Hawtin’s mix proving this point and from here things will only get bigger and better for Piek and for Piston Recordings.
After a great run of releases in labels like Cecille, Paulatine, Brise Records, Inmotion Music, Sphera and others, Piek is back to Piston Recordings with a smashing new single, Susurros, featuring remixes from Cosmic Cowboys, Efron, Lights Electronika and Muk.ti.

Steady Pace is Accatone’s debut album, a personal journey and view on house music, what it means, what it stands for and what it should be about, in a steady pace, like the title suggests.
The writing process was long, but the outcome is stunning and comes in a very subtle and elegant way.
Steady Pace is a bold statement in the deep house contemporary scene, with tracks ranging from chilled out breaks, to slow-mo nu-disco, passing by deep house hypnotic beats and ending in trippy house experiments.
Accatone, long time label collaborator and exclusive artist, presents us a single with tracks taken out of his forthcoming debut artist album – Steady Pace – to be out in Piston Recordings this summer.
