DEMARKUS LEWIS – STRUNG ON YOU (ROGERIO MARTINS REMIX) FEATURED BY BEATPORT LISTEN

Piston main man and head honcho Rogerio Martins is remix duty and delivers another fine slice of deepness for our listening pleasure. When this guy isn’t busy sifting demos and managing his label he gets into the studio to delight us with his sounds. Fresh off the back of his debut release on the legendary KMS Records, Rogerio loves nothing more than dishing out deep and groovy vibes and here he does not disappoint. The remix open with a very cool bassy kick drum and a super crispy hat with subtle percussions bringing up the rear. No time is wasted and soon the beautifully warm bass envelopes the sound while equally warm pads create a deep atmosphere. The track takes a short break where we are introduced to the star of the show, a fantastic piano chord that just oozes coolness and sophistication. The piano is so understated that it quite simply dominates the groove to perfection. Sprinklings of that smooth vocal litter the track making this a track you do not want to miss.

Marco Madia is back at Piston with this superb three tracker entitled Exos Lusius EP. His last outing was back in April 2015 with Sugar Lift EP and no doubt he’ll be cranking up the deep grooves once more on this newest slice.

Gardon intros dripping with a deep house groove that gets right under your skin instantly. A deep penetrating bass tone ebbs and flows as punchy kicks and bright crispy hats settle into a cool dancey rhythm. The intensity builds on the lower frequencies while more mid range sounds come through creating a very interesting dynamic.

Bright crispy hats enhance the sound and get the rhythm moving nicely. A solid tech house groove ensues as surreal strings are introduced to the sound resulting in a definite must have track to keep the floors burning into the small hours.

The title track, Exos Lucius, rounds up this EP and delivers a truly deep and grooving house sound right from the off. Deep basses form dominate the intro as cool percussions fade up and a solid punchy kick comes through. The track definitely gets its groove on with a little help from those tight drums and shuffling percussions. Swirling pads and warm chords fill up the sound and takes us deeper into the groove. A wonderfully crafted slice that will turn a few heads for sure.

DANNY EM – VOCES EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Danny eM is back at Piston with this fantastic three tracker entitled Voces EP. It’s been a while since we last saw him round these shores, it was July 2014 when he delivered his first Piston cut – Shades Of Summer EP. Heavily influenced by the early Chicago and New York sounds, Danny brings a wealth of quality to his productions which always raises the excitement levels and we can tell you that this one fits the bill.

Voces serves up a solid tech house workout with a tight drum arrangement that gets the rhythm flowing nicely. Big punchy kicks and bright crispy hats are joined by a plethora of rhythmic percussions that dish out a tribalistic vibe. The track breaks to reveal a soft chord before slamming us head first right back into this relentless groove. The perfect track to keep those dancing feet shuffling on the floors.
Interrupcion intros with a cool deep groove made up of tight drums and a warm rising synth alongside subtle funky guitar licks. An array of vocals litter the sound and are perfectly placed to keep the groove moving going deeper and deeper. Funky guitars and soft keys become a big focus on the track and are joined by some expert trumpeting later on. A feel good sound that will lift any set and get booty’s on the floor.

Sydril delivers a solid tech house groove right from the get go as chunky kicks and a wonderfully deep and lush bass combine to form the main body of the sound. Cool FX sweep across the sound as drum layers form up to bring a steady flowing rhythm. The track has a wonderful natural flow which is shown through contrasting sounds such as the cascading soft keys and the harsher noises that complement each other. A superb slice of tech here that will not disappoint.

Mario is no stranger to these shores as he made his debut here back at the start of 2016 with the Savages EP which gained great support from all over. We’re delighted to see him back and no doubt we’ll be seeing more from this guy in the future.

First up we have Invaders which gets going with a nice solid kick and a cool shuffling hat sequence that will surely get butts moving towards the floors. The track takes on a smooth persona with subtle synths delivering a bit of funk to the sound. Sprinklings of acid and vocal snippets are littered throughout and add cool textures to the tech groove. The big hitter here though is that bassline as it effortlessly meanders through the sound ramping up the groove in style. A nice phat sound that will be a welcome addition in any set.

Shades Of Love intros with a punchy kick drum and bright hats and percussions that form into a cool rhythmic flow. The track breaks to reveal a cool vocal before the beats come back with a superb phat bassline that probes through the sound beautifully. The tech grooves ooze out of this one and has that dancey vibe the floors are gonna love. The vocals continue throughout and are joined by cool chord stabs that have a nice retro edge. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.
