DANNY EM – VOCES EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Danny eM is back at Piston with this fantastic three tracker entitled Voces EP. It’s been a while since we last saw him round these shores, it was July 2014 when he delivered his first Piston cut – Shades Of Summer EP. Heavily influenced by the early Chicago and New York sounds, Danny brings a wealth of quality to his productions which always raises the excitement levels and we can tell you that this one fits the bill.

Voces serves up a solid tech house workout with a tight drum arrangement that gets the rhythm flowing nicely. Big punchy kicks and bright crispy hats are joined by a plethora of rhythmic percussions that dish out a tribalistic vibe. The track breaks to reveal a soft chord before slamming us head first right back into this relentless groove. The perfect track to keep those dancing feet shuffling on the floors.
Interrupcion intros with a cool deep groove made up of tight drums and a warm rising synth alongside subtle funky guitar licks. An array of vocals litter the sound and are perfectly placed to keep the groove moving going deeper and deeper. Funky guitars and soft keys become a big focus on the track and are joined by some expert trumpeting later on. A feel good sound that will lift any set and get booty’s on the floor.

Sydril delivers a solid tech house groove right from the get go as chunky kicks and a wonderfully deep and lush bass combine to form the main body of the sound. Cool FX sweep across the sound as drum layers form up to bring a steady flowing rhythm. The track has a wonderful natural flow which is shown through contrasting sounds such as the cascading soft keys and the harsher noises that complement each other. A superb slice of tech here that will not disappoint.

Mario is no stranger to these shores as he made his debut here back at the start of 2016 with the Savages EP which gained great support from all over.

First up we have Invaders which gets going with a nice solid kick and a cool shuffling hat sequence that will surely get butts moving towards the floors. The track takes on a smooth persona with subtle synths delivering a bit of funk to the sound. Sprinklings of acid and vocal snippets are littered throughout and add cool textures to the tech groove. The big hitter here though is that bassline as it effortlessly meanders through the sound ramping up the groove in style. A nice phat sound that will be a welcome addition in any set.

Shades Of Love intros with a punchy kick drum and bright hats and percussions that form into a cool rhythmic flow. The track breaks to reveal a cool vocal before the beats come back with a superb phat bassline that probes through the sound beautifully. The tech grooves ooze out of this one and has that dancey vibe the floors are gonna love. The vocals continue throughout and are joined by cool chord stabs that have a nice retro edge. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.

People Run intros with a very cool percussion arrangement followed up by a nice chunky kick drum. Shuffling hats and rides fill the gaps and set the rhythm on the loose. Cool vocal snippets come through and bring a subtle retro theme to the sound. The bassline takes over and walks flawlessly across the groove with ass shakin precision. The break throws up more cool vocals before we get right back into full on mode. A beautifully constructed slice here that will appeal to the movers and shakers on any floor.

Move Right sets off with a bright crispy hat and sharp claps alongside a pounding kick drum that will rattle the cones on any speaker system. The rhythm lifts off as those shuffling hats gain momentum before a short break unleashes the dirty tech fuelled bassline. A big focus on the drums here which is great news for the purists, but we do get a glimpse at some subtle synths that add cool textures throughout. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

The Acid Line gets moving with a superb kickdrum that pounds out a solid punch and is helped along by a deep throbbing bassline and some crispy sharp hats and retro electro percussions. In the background a tantalising acid line starts to fade up and instantly we are thrust back into that nostalgic world at the birth of a phenomenon in dance music. A real solid slice of pumping house music with a pristine acid lick that will appeal to veterans and newcomers alike. A must have record for sure.

Check My House intros with a cool musical stab that leaves behind a crispy shuffling hat and a sharp clap alongside a muted kick that transforms into a thumping monster kickdrum. A cool pad lurks in the background and builds an air of tension as we wait for that kick to get its punch on. A deep throbbing bassline drives the groove and sits beautifully in the world of drums around it. The break offers a short respite as smooth pads and keys come through before we climax back into the main groove for the duration. A wonderful slice here that is sure to keep the floors rocking.

His last outing came back in December 2015 with a collaboration on Fear Like Me alongside Ekai which gained great support across the board. Lots going on with this guy in 2016 and we look forward to more in the year ahead.

Time Out For Love serves up a real tasty slice of deep house goodness right from the off as chunky kicks are met with a crispy hat and some ultra cool vocals. The big hitter has to be that retro themed chord stab that resonates throughout the track and settles perfectly above the deep probing bassline that drives the groove. A definite must have track that will get the floors moving no doubt.

Countless intros with a punchy kick and sharp hat combi in a classic set up that will hit the floors with a bounce. A deep probing bassline starts to lurk about on the low end and is joined by cool vocal snippets and a high string. The layers build nicely and the groove is boosted by those fantastic vocals that burst through. Smooth deep house chords add a warm glow to the track on the break before we get slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff that is definitely not to be missed.
