SOUTHERN GROOVE – DIRTY BUSINESS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Southern Groove aka Adrian Romero and Mariano Chiappe are back at Piston Recordings for more of their house fuelled shenanigans in the form of the superb two tracker entitled Dirty Business. The duo’s last outing here was back in May 2016 with Bodyjack which gained great support across the board. Delighted to have them back once again and we look forward to more in the future.

First up we have Dirty Business which is certainly in the business of delivering the goods. A solid house joint that will definitely fill floors. Cool spoken word vocals sit over a driving house groove filled with deep basses and a tight drum arrangement. Funky fills come through creating perfect ass shakin’ moments as chunky kicks and a throbbing bassline dominate. Strong chords play a big role here making this a definite must have track.

The Other Side Of The Groove is a straight up delicious helping of pure house that will entice bodies to the floors no doubt. Pumping kick drums lead the way and are joined by a superb pitching bassline that grabs a hold of you and lock you in. Filtering guitar licks dominate as spoken vocals deliver their stereo sound vinyl record based narrative. A top notch cut that is a must for your house music arsenal.
