ORAA & EKAI – HOT LIKE 95 FAHRENHEIT (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Oraa & Ekai make their duo debut on Piston the superb two track Hot Like 95 Fahrenheit. Great to see Oraa return to Piston after his last release a few years back with That Go EP which was very well received indeed. Since then he has released on several labels and added his skills on remix duty for various artists. Ekai is a lover of house in all its forms and while he may seem relatively new to the scene he brings a fresh sounding quality to house music and he lists some of the greats of house as his influence such as Masters At Work, MK and Green Velvet. An exciting future for this Spanish duo as their music will attest, we’re looking forward to more in the future.

Hot Like 95 Fahrenheit intros with a classic styled kick and hat combi that always gets the appetite whet. Cool vocals creep into the sound early on and give us a glimpse of things to come. A superb pounding, throbbing bass takes full control of the sound as it bounces through the groove while those MC style vocals do their thing. Super tight drums bring a solid rhythm and keep the dancing feet moving easily. All throughout the track we get shook to the core by that brilliant bassline which really holds the track up beautifully. Get this on your playlist, you will not be disappointed.

Sun Won’t Shine Forever gets going with a powerful kick that hits you right in the chest and is joined by some crispy distorted open hats. Cool siren FX fill out the background as cool analog sounds bounce along the groove. A deep rooted bass lurks at the low end and allows the mid range sounds to flourish. Sinister sounding vocals sound off throughout and provide a dark narrative as much softer voices filter through. Cool dark sounds for the late night sessions, superb stuff.

BONETTI – DON’T STOP THE RHYTHM (PISTON RECORDINGS)

The stylish sounds of Bonetti return with his new four track EP entitled Don’t Stop The Rhythm. This Spanish DJ and producer likes to add his own unique twists on Tech House and Deep House which you can find on his last release Rupture. Always a delight to have this guys sounds come into the office and hopefully much more to come.

Up first we have the aptly named Don’t Stop The Rhythm with its shuffling percussive intro that really sets the rhythm loose. Tight drum arrangements build up and are soon joined by a nice well rounded kick that adds a cool punch to the track. A short break brings in groovy keys that bring a warm glow to the sound. The keys take on various personas as a result of some nifty finger play creating a smooth head nodding groove that in turn gets the booty shakin. Top notch FX sweep through the sound alongside funky vocals which sit so well into the groove. Superb stuff you will not want to miss.

House Of The Rising Sun intros with a classic styled chunky kick and hat combi which is joined by a throbbing bass that walks through the sound effortlessly gaining momentum as it goes. Warbling keys soon join is also and deliver a real funkness to the groove with the help of cool vocals. The break whittles down to echoed claps and vocals as a brilliant chord stab fades through before slamming us right back into the main groove for the duration. Top notch solid beats here that will be a welcome addition in any deep and groovy set.

Next we have My Lonely Nights which sets off with a smooth, atmospheric house vibe as soft keys come through and transform into a sustained synth complete with filtered edges before slamming into a full deep fuelled vibe. Super tight drums and plucked basses provide the solid rhythms here and the myriad of keys make for a very interesting ride. The vocals stand out beautifully and keep with the funky tones within the groove, a stunning slice of deep house goodness here and a must have track for 2015.

Dance For Me rounds up the EP in style with its classic intro and teasing notes. A wonderfully lush bass meanders through the sound giving off a quick step feel as a tight drum arrangement sets the rhythm off. Cool keys litter the groove throughout and provide a true house experience alongside the fantastic vocals on offer. A proper upfront deep house cut that will have the floors moving no doubt.

Bozza Grezza gets right into a deep and dirty groove from the off with a cool, crispy hat and chunky kick combo alongside a tight percussion section. We get drawn into the rhythmic nature of the track as the expertly crafted drums become a big feature providing the groove beautifully. Brilliantly effected vocals come through and bring striking textures to the sound in their various forms. Superb stuff that will get any dancefloor rocking with its bouncy beats.

Inside intros with a high pitched string, muted kicks and an inviting open hat which leads up to a strong punchy kick that takes over beautifully. A big, brash dirty bassline soon enters the fray with its menacing groove that will get the booty shakin no doubt. Superbly tweaked vocals litter the sound throughout and give the track its character as late night grooving monster. Perfect fodder for the late night sessions, not to be missed.

Since late 2013, releases on labels like Natura Viva, Innocent Music, ExpMental Records, Antura Records and Hang On Music have garnered much support from top jocks around the world. We’re delighted to have Kunda here at Piston and look forward to more in the future.

Persiano gets the EP moving with a solid intro filled with chunky beats and a nice and warm well rounded bass that will have asses shakin no doubt. Intricate percussions weave out a steady flowing rhythm as cool house styled vocals come through. Smooth keys slowly fade in and tease us with their groovy goodness before cutting back into the bassy grooves. A real nice slice of deep house with a sprinkling of tech you will not want to miss.

In Another World intros with an electro tech flavour as cool drum patterns will attest. A punchy kick is soon introduced alongside the plucky bassline that gives off that techy edge. The bassline transforms into a full on groovy mover as more notes are played in. In the background we get some very cool pads and keys bringing a funky twist to the sound. The break unleashes more of those synths and pads and give a much more intensive vibe, after the break a soulful vocal breaks out and is the icing on the cake for the fantastic offering.

The Manner Of The Bulls gives a very cool drum led intro as crackly breaks lead us up to a strong and powerful kick that takes over the sound. A distant bass begins to rise up through the sound and brings a smooth and groovy vibe with a nice bassy aftertaste. Tight drum patterns emerge and become the mainstay of the track with very cool FX work happening all around. Top notch stuff that will turn a few heads for sure.
