GUSHER – CIRCADIAN RHYTHM (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Gusher aka Caracas, Venezuela based DJ and producer Gustavo Herrera debuts on Piston Recordings with the deep house grooves of Circadian Rhythm. Gustavo first got into dance music at age 14 when he bought Daft Punk’s Homework. Four years later he became a DJ after absorbing all the delights of electronic music. His early influences are the likes of Jon Cutler, Marques Wyatt, Mark Farina, Groove Armada, Carl Craig, Roman Flugel and more. In 2009 he seriously got involved in making music and started working with Carloscres on a few tracks like Sleepscience released on Society 3.0 and One life to live released on Cosmic Disco Records before signing with Argentinean house label Di One Music to release his first EP titled Someday. He was then picked up by Irish record label Swink Music Ltd releasing the Freedom EP with Carloscres and two other producers (Matthew Collins and Love Bites). Great to have him on board and we know you’re gonna love this guy’s sound.

Circadian Rhythm intros with a nice and warm punchy kick drum with some cool FX floating in the background. A superb, funky ass bassline shows up and is joined by some superb chords that bring rich textures to the sound. Deep house vibes ooze out of this one and the percussion section generates a solid rhythmic flow with a snappy snare cutting through those lower frequencies. A beautiful slice of deep grooves that is not to be missed.

Light Fluctuations sets out with a shuffling hat sequence combined with an array of percussions that entices you in before a nice and chunky kick drum takes centre stage. A throbbing bassline is introduced and the groove is ramped up to a deep house frenzy which is enhanced by fading in keys. This one delivers a truly epic, mesmeric and hypnotic groove as those house fuelled chords do their thing. A welcome addition in any late night session.

CERILLO – ALL DEM HOES (PISTON RECORDINGS)

On the DJ front he spins regularly at many events unleashing his superbly crafted sets to the floors and the radio waves.

The Original Mix intros with a nice deep probing bassline and chunky kick drum combi which is soon joined by a crispy hi hat and layering percussions that get the rhythm moving effortlessly. The hypnotic bassline remains a constant throughout and locks you into its grasp for the duration with little respite. A cool vocal comes in giving the track a whole new demeanour and floor appeal. A very subtle acid line starts to creep in on one of the filtered breaks which leads to a wonderful, energetically charged climax before slamming right back into full on mode. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

A Piston firm favourite and all round hugely talented artist Leandro Di is up first on remix duties and once again we are blown away by the sheer quality this guy brings to the table. His last outing for us was back in July 2016 with Spiral Space which was a top pick among many as well as various appearances on several compilations. Always an exciting time to get this guys work through the inbox and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more in the future. The remix intros with a nice punchy kick drum that sets the tone perfectly for a trip into deeper territory. Bright crispy hats come through as warm chord stabs fade in which are in turn joined by a superb low end bassline. Cool vocal snippets litter the sound adding character while beautifully lush pads create some excellent textures in the groove. Perfect deep fodder for the floors.

UK based DJ and producer Alex Bradbury returns to Piston, this time he steps up to the remix plate offering a wonderful take on the original with a more pacey approach. His last outing here was his debut back in the Summer of 2016 with his Spektrum EP which certainly proved popular among many and then in September he appeared on My House Is Your House 13. We can’t wait to hear more from this guy. The remix intros with a cool mixture of percussions and a muted kick that is soon beefed up to a full on pumping bass drum. The percussions really get the rhythm flowing here and lead us up to a superb deep rooted bassline that dominates so much of the track. Cool FX start to appear and we find ourselves locked on to the groove. Subtle synths add some excellent textures to the sound but it’s that bass and winding down FX that carry the most weight here.

BJERK PETERSON & CITRUS – FUNKADELIKA EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Since then he’s been racking up quality cuts for various outfits as well as appearing at top parties around Barcelona and beyond.

The original mix of Funkadelika is up first and right away we are thrust into full on swinging slab of deep house grooves with a very cool garage sound. Everything is tight, from the drums to the beautifully crafted keys, club driven vocals and that rumbling low end sub level bass. A definite dancefloor slice here that will not disappoint. Funkadelika gets a makeover with the Jazzy Booty Mix which delivers a much funkier vibe that its original counterpart. We get the same tight arrangement and that blend of cool keys and vocals but with a much deeper groove that befits the jazzy style. Silky smooth vibes for the late night escapades.

Wanna Know is up next and the original mix gets straight down to a floor friendly vibe right from the off. Chunky kick drums are joined by rhythmic percussions and an array over very cool keys and a high pitch tone. The vocals add a lot of character to the sound in an almost playful fashion while the guts of the track delivers a superb deep house groove complete with warping basses inside a sophisticated arrangement. Next up is the Wobble Mix of Wanna Know which takes a deeper path than the original. The drums offer much more depth here as the vocals ring out alongside funky keys and the infectious rhythmic groove. The bass weaves in and out creating a hypnotically charged effect. Another fine slice of deep house that is a definite must have.

JON COSTAS – DON’T TOUCH ME FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Spanish DJ and producer Jon Costas debuts on Piston Recordings with the upbeat groovy vibes of Don’t Touch Me which is a cool play on words and cleverly split into two tracks. Jon began his music career at just 16 years old, dabbling in different styles until he found his true calling, house music. At first he was learning all about producing music before he started to DJ and in the last few years he has been focusing more on that while still learning all he can about making beats. Great to have him on board and we hope to see more soon.

Great to have him on board and we hope to see more soon.

Don’t sets off with a nice bouncy tech vibe that will get feet to the floors no doubt. Pumping kick drums and crispy hi hats lead the way as a superb bouncing bassline takes the groove up a notch. Sultry, swirling pads offer a warm fuzzy glow to the track as the more edgy drums section gathers pace. A top notch slice of tech that will not disappoint.

Touch Me intros with a fantastic sharp synth that glides across the sound to the backdrop of a building percussion section and cool vocal hits. Punchy beats soon follow and are joined by slicing hi hats and a beautifully round deep sub bass. The track picks up the pace thanks to the infectious synth hook that dominates the groove. A fantastic pure tech house cut that is a definite must have.

Daniel spreads his expertise over many genres with deep house and chill being his most active genres, today we see him with his deep house mode in full effect.

Tinker invites us into a world filled with moody deep house vibes. A nice live sounding drum arrangement leads the way as surreal piano keys add to the mesmerizing atmospherics. Deep, warm and lush basses dig deep into your soul and you soon find yourself totally hooked on the groove. A thought provoking slice of deep house grooves that is a definite must have.

It’s OK To Smile intros with a nice chunky kick drum with cool shuffling hi hats and percussions building up forming into a solid rhythmic groove. Deep resonating basses come through to beef up the sound in contrast to the surreal synth shots and quality FX. The deepness continues and we are lost in a world full of strangely melancholic sounds that draw us in, making us want more.
