GOBBETTI PIZZINI – BLACK GIRL EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Based in Verona, Italy, DJ and producer duo Gobbetti Pizzini debut on Piston with this superb three tracker entitled Black Girl EP. Gianmaria Gobbetti and Thomas Pizzini aka Gobbetti Pizzini bring a smooth blend of deep house along for the ride, their tracks have seen great support and have seen releases on labels like Young NRG Productions, Deep Dependence and Exotic Refreshment. We are delighted to have these guys on board and look forward to more.

First up is the title track, Black Girl. On the intro deep rooted basses and muted kicks filter up and are joined by a distant piano arp that hints at melodic flavours. Crispy percussions make an appearance as the offset bassline takes full control of the sound. A fantastic sounding brass riff with its spacious vibe provides an unexpected twist to the sound and adds very cool textures. This track really does go deep and will keep you locked in for the duration, not to be missed.

Freedom intros with some very cool keys that fade in slowly, building anticipation. Those keys soon reveal their warm tones and are joined by a nice chunky kick and a deep resonating bass. Crispy percussions soon follow as the kicks take on a breaks persona that really gets the rhythm flowing. The track has a melancholic flavour throughout which is built upon by a raspy blues styled vocal snippet. A fantastic, deep and thought invoking track that will appeal to many for sure.

Solo gets going with a haphazard display of sounds that gets the rhythms flowing nicely with the help of a stuttering percussion display. Smooth warm house chords gets the groove moving beautifully while a superb bassline brings up the rear. The deep chords play a huge role here and keep the track moving as the layers build. A little nod to the oldskool style here that will definitely grab a lot of attention no doubt.

IVAN MASA – I DON’T REMEMBER MY SYNTH (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Ivan returns to Piston with I Don’t Remember My Synth which is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Don’t Stop The Groove Man back in March 2014. We have no doubt that this two tracker will garner lots of support as his previous outings have.

I Don’t Remember My Synth intros with a cool kick and an ever increasing array of percussions that really set the rhythm loose. Smooth house chords bring a classy vibe to the sound as they swirl around with a warm clarity. Vocal samples are the perfect addition as they bring a lot of character and add cool textures. The big draw here has gotta be that bassline, it just dances through the sound beautifully, picking you up and carrying you along its groovy journey. As the track meanders along the layers continue to build on the deep house grooves, bright strings and synth hits create a fantastic myriad of sound making this a track not to be missed.

Deep Penetration is up next and brings a very cool percussion arrangement alongside soft keys and a harsh bass pluck that gives some very cool contrasts. A big heavy hitting chunky kick soon follows and we are set into a brilliant groovy workout. A deep sub bass is on hand to accompany those bass plucks and does a great job shoring up the groove. Vocal samples litter the sound as big synths fade into the background. The break reveals cool melodies that are borne out of a stark, raw analogue styled synth which blends so beautifully into the sound. A deep and penetrating track that will turn a few heads for sure.

JAVI ALVADO & THC – BROOKLYN TALES EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Javi Alvado & THC aka Victor Alvado make their Piston debuts with the superb two track, Brooklyn Tales EP. The guys started to DJ together back in 2009 and have went on to perform at top venues across Europe including placed like the Plastik Beach Club in Ibiza. In 2012 they started producing together and have amassed many releases across various labels. Their style is a cross between Tech House, Deep House and Techno which makes for some diverse results. They currently run A&R on Ultradrum Records.

First up is the title track Brooklyn Tales with its classic intro, solid kicks and nice crispy hats with sharp claps soon following, this gets the rhythm flowing beautifully and sets us up for a wonderful dancing experience. Old school styled synth stabs are the mainstay here and bring an edge to the track allowing memories of the heady days to surface. At the low end a raw sub bass lurks menacingly yet holds back enough to let the stabs run free and dominate the sound. Cool vocal samples give the track a lot of character making this a definite must have.

Grip Me intros with a nice punchy kick and cool percussion pattern that become infectious as the rhythm builds. Excellent stabbing synths filter through and are joined by cool vocal samples. The bass lets loose with a fathomless sub tone aimed to get you right in the chest with its pulsating groove. The big hitter though are the very cool synths and keys that bring that true house vibe to the sound with a fresh appeal. Superb stuff here that will gain a lot of attention for sure.

LUROB – SLIPPERY WHEN WET EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

San Francisco based LuRob aka Luis Roberto makes a welcome return to Piston with his Slippery When Wet EP. We last saw Luis back in March 2013 and since then he has continued to grace the finest House establishments as well as releases across various labels.

First up we have the Original Mix of Twin Peaks Lounge which intros with a beautifully filtered funky groove filled with lush tones and grainy guitar licks. The track lets loose with a fantastic punchy kick and shuffling percussions that will definitely get floors moving to the groovy rhythms. The track goes deep with a wonderful pulsating bass that contrasts perfectly with the brighter elements as those funky riffs remain prominent. The track also boasts classy melodic sequences which are joined by some brilliantly crafted drum arrangements. Top notch stuff from Luis and a definite must have.

Dave Dubbz provides the remix on Twin Peaks Lounge and goes right into the heart of deep house grooves. We saw Dave on Secrets Of The Trade 2 back in 2013 with his track Funky Thrills. Dave has seen a multitude of releases across many labels he also remixes many artists including JR From Dallas and Joss Moog. Here the track gets into full swing right from the off with pacey rhythmic groove made up of tight kicks and sharp hats to the backdrop of cool snare rolls. The warm bass comes through beautifully and gives a real sense of depth to the sound. Big chord stabs litter the sound as house synths begin to filter through. The big feature on the track has gotta be those drum arrangements, ever evolving and complex, they will definitely keep those dancing feet moving.

Meet Me After Dark rounds up this stunning EP with its slightly tougher stance as big chunky kicks are joined by harsh and crispy hats alongside some very cool percussions. The bassline evolves out of the depths with a resonating power that dominates the low end. In contrast the track works brilliantly as the harsher sounds meet warmer tones. A great vocal riffs throughout the track adding lots of character and reinforcing the tougher edge. A true deep house groove that will find a home in the deeper sets for sure.
