DEAN CHAPPLE & JAMES DANIELS – LOOK INTO MY EYES FEATURED BY BEATPORT

UK based producer duo Dean Chapple & James Daniels aka Daniel Morris debut on Piston with the superb 2 tracker Look Into My Eyes. The guys met several years ago while working at a high street clothing store in what they’ve both described as a “random meet”, they’ve been friends ever since. Dean started to write his own music around 2007 having started to play around with basic production software, learning as he went through trial and error. He was responsible for getting Daniel interested in music and after releasing a couple of tracks they started to take this music thing much more seriously, and after a trip to Ibiza their minds were made up. Starting off with a tech sound, they soon realised that they wanted to make music that they liked, so they went underground. Now after a raft of releases on several top labels, these guys are riding the crest of a wave with their sound. Delighted to have them on board at Piston and we hope to see more soon.
