PULPTALKS – SUGAR LIPS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian born and London based DJ and producer PulpTalks returns to Piston Recordings with the superb two tracker – Sugar Lips. We saw PulpTalks debut here back in the Summer of 2016 with Sand which gained good support all over. With a penchant for turning out some quality vibes and for igniting the party with his DJ sets, we’ve no doubt that this guy will just get better and better.

Sugar Lips is a smooth deep house groover with a steady flowing rhythmic vibe that is made up of punchy kick drums and slicing hi hats alongside intricate percussion patterns. The bassline and synths are where it’s at here, they both combine beautifully to deliver that solid deep house groove that is sure to get the bootys on the floors, a must have no doubt.

When She Smiles intros with a fantastic heavily filtered synth that morphs brilliantly alongside a deep slow vocal. Big chunky kick drums come through and we’re taken on a deep and groovy trek filled with crispy hi hats and those excellent synths. A superb rumbling bassline sits on the low end shoring up the track and giving it a cool edge. On the break the synths are let loose before the filters kick back in leaving us wanting more. This one will definitely be a welcome addition in any late night set.

Some Advices intros with a nice upbeat techy kinda drum arrangement that will get the floors moving no doubt. A deep pulsing bass delivers a healthy dose of low end as the shuffling rhythm intensifies. Distant synths melt into the arrangement which takes us to the break where a very cool vocal comes through before we are built back up and into full on mode. Superb stuff not to be missed.

Vozic Room offers a nice and smooth tech house vibe that carries a deep flavour. Chunky kick drums lead the way with crispy offset hi hats creating a rhythmic flow. Short chord stabs fade in and out as a real deep low end bass weaves through the sound. The track gives off a cool dancey vibe with a laidback kinda groove that will definitely get booty’s shakin on the floors.

The Indian is a deep hypnotic slice of tech house. Chunky kicks and bright crispy hi hats provide the intro alongside some cool synths and eerie background pads. The bass rises stealthily through the sound becoming infectious throughout. On the break we are faced with a surreal sequence made up of those eerie pads and a mesmerizing Ethnic style male vocal that adds so much character to the sound. Top notch stuff.

We’re delighted to have him on board at Piston.

Chandan delivers a solid deep house groove with fantastic live sounding drums and percussions bringing an authentic vibe. A nice and big chunky kick drum is also at play here adding some warmth alongside smooth chords and a lush bottom end. Cool synths add wonderful textures to the sound while giving off a funky vibe. The deep probing bassline keeps the track moving nicely making this a definite must have.

Roughing Mood is beautifully crafted slice of deep house that has a very cool unique vibe made up of warm analogue sounds and a very distinctive classic vocal sample. A tight drum and percussion section provides a nice flowing steady rhythmic vibe as the deep probing bassline weaves through the track. Warm chords wash over the sound as the classic vocal is met with a very cool diva-esque snippet. Top notch stuff that will be a dancefloor filler for sure.

JR FROM DALLAS – SLOWING FEATURED BY BEATPORT

French DJ and producer JR From Dallas returns to Piston Recordings after a bit of a hiatus with the fantastic two tracker Slowing. We last caught a glimpse of this guy on our Secrets Of The Trade 6 compilation a few months back, but his last full release was way back in 2013 alongside LuRob and their Deep Into EP. JR has been buys though, he continues to dish out quality deep house, tech house and house joints as well as performing at many top venues across Europe. He’s currently in the middle of his album – World House Experience (Gourmand Music Recordings) – release tour which will see him take in multiple shows in the Czech Republic and Japan having already toured extensively this Summer. Great to have him back at Piston and no doubt we’ll see more of him in the future.

Great to have him back at Piston and no doubt we’ll see more of him in the future.

First up we have the deep and raw Slowing which delivers a solid moody deep house groove full of quirky sounds and a wonderful hypnotic bassline. Lush tones, warm chords and that rumbling bassline sit below a tight drum arrangement made up of chunky kicks and rhythmic percussions that will force you to move. A plethora of quirky sounds fill the space alongside a deep spoken vocal adding some very cool textures to the sound. Top notch stuff that you will not want to miss.

Yokohama Ghetto intros with a nice punchy kick drum and a cool vocal snippet alongside building percussions and crispy hi hats. A fantastic deep bassline that carries a funky element takes hold and lulls you towards the floor. Eerie sounding pads swirl over head creating a superb atmosphere that just goes deeper and deeper while the rhythmic elements keep the booty’s shakin’. Another fine slice from this guy that will not disappoint.

A fantastic deep rumbling bassline steals the show here as its low end subs rattle the speakers. Cool vocals spill out of the sound adding character with an urban feel. A truly stomper of a tune that is not to be missed.

Asthma sets off with a real nice and bouncy old school flavour as punchy kicks and shuffling hats get the rhythm moving. Cool percussions join in and you’ll be forced towards the floor against your will due to the infectious grooves. The bassline comes from way deep down in the sub department and will certainly get the booty’s shakin’ while cool vocals are spread throughout. A straight up pumping tune that will keep the party rocking long into the night, top notch stuff.

Two varying degrees of experience on this one with an exciting end result that is sure to get the floors pumping.

Move Bit gets down and dirty with a solid tech house groove right from the off as a classic style kick and hi hat combi take hold. The bass starts to creep in and you know you’re headed straight for the dancefloor. The bulk of the track focuses in on the drums with a cacophony of beautifully sequenced drums layered up into intricate patterns with a live element feel and the spoken vocal adds an extra level of texture. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

Cut Hop is a proper ass shakin’ floor filler with its bouncy rhythmic groove that forces you to move. Nice chunky kicks lead the way against a tight drum section that delivers a smooth rhythmic flow. A wonderful low end sub bass bursts through and is joined by a cool urban rap vocal that fits the theme of the sound perfectly. With a big draw towards the drums and bass there is minimal synth use that manages to add a brighter edge to the sound. A must have track no doubt.
