GIANLUCA RATTALINO – THE PARTY STARTED (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian DJ and producer Gianluca Rattalino debuts on Piston with the funked up tech house flavours of The Party Started. Gianluca has been dishing out quality vibes for the last few years and his repertoire extends to many top labels with a great deal of support coming in from all quarters. On the DJ front he is active at various parties as well as guest spots on several radio stations. We’re delighted to have him on board and we’ve no doubt his sound will appeal to many.

The Party Started intros with a superb funky synth riff that will have feet shuffling straight to the floors. In the background a very cool simple vocal delivers maximum effect while solid chunky beats keep the rhythm flowing. The track carries a full on club vibe that will most definitely be a welcome addition in any set.

Slow sets off with a cool rhythmic drum led intro that is filled with punchy kicks, crispy hi hats and shuffling percussions. A deep and lush bassline comes through and sends the track on its gritty tech house fuelled ride. Proper floorfilling beats here that will no doubt appeal to many, a definite must have.

MARCO MADIA – ASCIDIANS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian producer Marco Madia returns to Piston with another top notch two tracker entitled Ascidian. Marco has been in and around the underground scene for a number of years. In 2006 he moved to Berlin where he got a degree audio engineering and soon started work as a sound designer. He also produces under the pseudonym Flip Morton and his experience has led to working on film soundtracks and exhibitions. This one is Marco’s sixth Piston release and we’ve become accustomed to his quality, something we look forward to hearing more of in the future.

Ascidians takes us deep into the house sound right from the off as muted kicks are joined by dark sounds that rise up from the depths. The kicks get boosted to pounding status and we’re on our way. A deep rumbling bass shores up the low end while warm chords are stabbed into the groove. Throughout the track you continue to find little nuanced sounds that add some wonderful textures to this almost primordial sound that gets you right in the soul. Superb stuff.

Thaliace is a beautifully constructed slice of Summery deep house vibes that would be perfectly at home on a sunkissed terrace just before Sunset. A smooth deep groove is prevalent throughout and it’s filled with warming, lush basses and wonderfully melodic synths. The hypnotic nature will keep you locked on for the duration making this an absolute must have track in your arsenal.

He is very well respected amongst his peers and has shared the decks with many top names. He is a co-owner of Southpark Records, Old School Department and Glory Touch Records. His style is quite diverse, but he loves to delve into tech house with a distinct oldschool flavour that creates a synergy on the floors.

Overload delivers a minimal tech house cut that will definitely get the floors moving with its infectious rhythms and pumping vibes. The intro boasts a nice and solid kick drum with crispy hi hats on the offset that get the rhythm up to speed. In the background an almost eerie pad dominates and draws our attention. The pads fade and we’re left with a pumping tech house groove with a deep low end and a cool one word spoken vocal. Those pads return in the final third and keeps us hooked for the duration. Top notch stuff indeed and not to be missed.

WTF, translated as text speak for what the fuck, is the perfect reaction to this superb slice of tech house. There will be many clubbers who will exclaim WTF on hearing this cut as it’s one of those tracks that will perk you up and get you straight onto the floor with its fist pumping grooves and cool vocals. A tight drum section ensures a flowing rhythm while on the low end a superb sub does its thing. The vocals create a very cool vibe and are matched in equal coolness by raw acid lines and quirky synth plucks. Brilliant stuff and a must have no doubt.
