BONETTI – PUMPING PUMPING EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Spanish DJ and producer Bonetti aka Andres Boned is back at Piston with his Pumping Pumping EP, and one thing is for sure, it’s pumping. His last outing came on remix duties for Rob Small and Dan Hartley’s – Stubbed which proved popular among many jocks, which is no surprise as this guy really knows how to work a groove. Pumping Pumping comes with the original mix and a top notch remix as well as two other tracks making this pack a tasty treat.

The Original Mix sets out with some cool and crispy hats and sharp claps before a solid kick drum pounds out a thumping beat. We get locked down into a full on Chicago inspired deep house groove as that bass line rolls effortlessly across the sound. Retro styled vocal snippets litter the groove and are the perfect match for the classic chord stabs. A proper dance floor destroyer no doubt, a must have track.

Italian born DJ and producer Carlo Caldareri returns to the Piston camp with his remix of Pumping Pumping. We last caught a glimpse from this guy back in 2014 with Cuz I’m Killing and an appearance on Best Of Piston Recordings 2014. He’s also shown up on My House Is Your House 10 and Tech Room Toolbox 4 on Bonzai Progressive. Great to see him back once again and we hope to see more in the future. On the remix here Carlo etches out a full on tech house flavoured groove. Tight drums and super crispy hats ensure the rhythms will force you to move. A solid unbroken bass line takes over and dominates with a funky twist. That bass line keeps us going until the break where classic vocals come through before we get slammed right back into full on mode. Top notch stuff yet again from this guy, not to be missed.

Gangsta Boom intros with a classic thumping kick and sharp hat combi complete with snappy claps to get the rhythm juices flowing. A superb bass line takes over and brings a warm deep groove to the sound. The bass is coupled with some smooth keys that deliver a funky side to the sound which will definitely have booty’s shakin all over the floor. Cool rap style vocals lift the track and give it a pacey edge while other classic vocal sit in the background. Another fine slice of deep house that will be a welcome addition in any collection.

Follow The Leader sets off with a classic intro full of punchy kicks and crispy clear hats and sharp claps. A smooth rolling bass line soon joins in and offers up a brilliant deep groovy vibe. On top of the bass we have warm chords that seal the track firmly into the deep house realm. We are treated to some fantastic vocals that will definitely give the party a lighter touch. A wonderful fusion of sounds that will keep floors moving all night long, top notch stuff.

ROB SMALL & DANNY HARTLEY – STUBBED (JACKY (UK) REMIX) CHARTED BY MAX CHAPMAN

UK DJ and producer Jacky (UK) debuts on Piston Recordings having cut his teeth on various labels over the last couple of years. Known for injecting high energy into his sets, this guy knows how to turn it on for the floors. As well as his residency at Manchester’s Mute he also spins regularly at Sankeys and South Nightclub. A relative newcomer to the world of production, we’re definitely gonna see a lot more from this guy. The remix intros with a fresh tech house vibe as crispy hats lay down a cool rhythm alongside equally cool vocals. A nice punchy kick comes in as the drum layers build giving the track a well rounded feel. The bass powers through and takes full control of this superb grooving monster. The break filters out the bass and brings in some cool riffs that keep the rhythm locked in before we hit the peak and come crashing back to those lush low end frequencies that really give this one a lot of oomph. Top notch stuff that will do well in any upbeat set.

The Original Mix offers up a solid tech workout with punchy kicks and tight drum patterns to keep the dancing feet shuffling. A deep rip roaring bass trundles through the sound and gives off that tech vibe beautifully. Cool spoken vocals straight outta the “dungeons” litter the sound and add a little extra spice that livens up the groove. The floors are gonna love this one, a definite must have track in your arsenal.

Top notch stuff that will do well in any upbeat set.

Portuguese DJ and producer Alvaro Martins aka Upright returns to Piston with his fantastic remix. He grew up with a love for 80’s and 90’s Pop and Rock sounds which soon developed into a passion for Classic Soul and Funk. At 8 years old he joined a music school and learned classic piano which gave him a deeper insight into how music evolves. Nowadays his early influences have proved useful in his outstanding production style. He has released a plethora of top quality House cuts across many labels and he also joins forces with his friend to form Peers & Upright with releases on Something Else and Save Room Recordings. Alvaro debuted on Piston back in January 2015 with a remix on Oli Frances’ Slow Mo. As Upright he takes a clear vision on how he wants a sound to project, strong rhythms and deep chords, the perfect recipe to light up floors. The remix intros with a nice solid kickdrum alongside cool snappy snares and sharp claps. The vocal fades up and leads us to a superb low end bass that just hangs perfectly over the sound as a high pitched synth rings through. We soon settle into the groove as the tech vibes drip off the sound. A super tight arrangement delivers the rhythms beautifully as that bass dances along the groove. Heads will be turned and floors will be burned with this one.

Spanish DJ and producer Bonetti aka Andres Boned shows up once more on Piston with his remix and judging by his last outing – Don’t Stop The Rhythm EP – back in January 2015, we are in for a real treat. Andre has been attracted to electronic music and clublife from an early age. In 2010 he decided to get into making his own music. He likes to add his own unique twists on Tech House and Deep House so that his sounds can be enjoyed on the beach or in the club at the same time. Since he released his first track in 2011 on iFrominal he has not looked back, a raft of releases and support from around the world has stood him in good stead and will no doubt keep him on track for an exciting future. The remix takes on a wonderful deep house groove right from the off as warm keys are locked in with a solid kick and sharp clap before the rhythm starts to flow with cool hats and clap patterns. A fantastic FM bassline bursts through and drives the track beautifully while spacey FX go off all around. We get treated to some very cool spoken vocals that adds a cool layer to the sound and keeps the house groove moving nicely. An excellent slice of house that will be a welcome addition in any set.

UPRIGHT – SHAPER TAPE (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Portuguese DJ and producer Alvaro Martins aka Upright marks his full release debut on Piston with the fantastic two tracker – Shaper Tape. Upright takes a clear vision on how he wants a sound to project, strong rhythms and deep chords, the perfect recipe to light up floors.

First up we have Shaper Tape which intros with a strong kick drum accompanied by crispy hats and snapping snares. A tight drum arrangement sees the rhythm flow effortlessly in the sound and will definitely get the dancing feet shuffling. A deep throbbing bass rattles its way through the track and provides a solid platform for the deep techy groove to shine. Retro themed basses add that classic touch to the sound and is further enhanced by superb stabbing piano chords. Excellent stuff from Alvaro and we hope to see more soon.

Bite You At The Altar is up next and again we get a strong intro filled with punchy kicks and crispy hats. A deep probing bass soon follows and takes over the sound as layer continue to build creating depth in the track. Cool FX litter this tech groove and it’s a more sinister sounding effect that gives this one a darker edge. A brilliant vocal comes at the end of a tight buildup and slams us into the groove once more where we get treated to a myriad of cool sounds and various vocal shots that add so much character to the groove. A top notch slice of tech house that will be a welcome addition in any box.

Melted eases into existence with a real sense of deep as soft kicks are met with a distant hum and building percussions. A wonderfully lush and warm bass comes through and settles the track into a smooth house groove. In the background we find swelling pads mixed with haunting voices that add a great character to the sound as we journey ever deeper. The break reveals subtle melodic flavours that add cool contrast to the darker elements and blend in perfectly with those swirling pads and voices. Top notch stuff from Mash that is a definite must have track.

Jeep House dishes out a nice and solid tech groove right the from the off as those punchy kicks get to work with a little help from some cool percussive elements that build up nicely delivering steady rhythms. The tech flavours just drip off this sound as the bass hangs in the groove while cool vocals pop up throughout. The big focus here has got to be that tight drum and percussion arrangement which really delivers on the rhythm front and will definitely keep those feet shuffling to the floors. Superb stuff here that you will not want to miss.

CHARLIE PEARSON – TROJAN SENDOUT (ORIGINAL MIX) FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Trojan Sendout intros with a scathing scraping sound alongside super crispy closed hats and a powerful punchy kick that dominates. Cool vocal one shots pop up and offer a cool vibe to the sound before the phattest, grooviest bass line takes over and forces your body to rock to its beat. The vocals become more prominent and deliver a nice retro vibe giving the track an upbeat mood. It’s that bass line that commands the most here though and will surely be a definite floor filler.
