BHOO & DIRTYPLAN – KOMBOLOY (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Bhoo & Dirtyplan join forces for their Piston debut with the superb Komboloy which comes backed up with a fantastic remix from Holic Trax boss Tomoki Tamura. Bhoo are made up of three like-minded DJ’s and producers – Gianluca Viscovo, Luciano FM aka Luciano Fotis Meletopoulos and Paul Kenny aka Paolo Canale. Each brings his own unique style to the table, Gianluca adds in his blend of Funk, Soul and 80’s Electro while Luciano injects Disco Funk and oldskool House leaving Paul to usher in his Tech and Electronic sounds. Bhoo have appeared on many labels with great support over the years and they have worked with lots of top artists including Tali Freaks and C Minor. DirtyPlan recently saw his debut track Kilonova get a release on Let It Play and has gained a lot of support across the board as well as climbing many charts. His Deep House grooves can also be found on remix duty for Jeremy Urbano’s Human Rise and having hit the ground running at the end of November, it’s still gathering pace with support coming in from all angles.

The Original Mix intros with a huge crash which settles into a nice chunky kick and percussion led rhythm. Cool synth hits litter the groove as the layers build and give off a sublime deep tech experience. A subtle bass runs through the sound with the focus remaining on percussive elements and cool FX as distorted voices add textures and keep the deep vibe of the sound going. The break throws out more spoken word vocals and adds to the intensity of the sound with the help of amazing filtered synth sequences. We crash right back into the main groove with a flourish before settling back into this full on stomper for the duration. A gem of a track that will turn a few heads for sure.

Tomoki Tamura debuts on Piston with his stunning remix. The head of Holic Trax has been around the scene for a long time and in 2012 he decided to turn his very successful 10 year old Holic club events into a vehicle for showcasing rising talents and established artists alike. Many hits followed and in 2014 the labels profile was raised with support coming in from all angles, artists like Tuccillo, Sierra Sam, Doublet, Rick Wade, Chris Carrier, Ekkohaus & Rufus, Kate Simko, and Robert Dietz to name a few, are storming live sets and charts with their brand of deep tech vibes. No doubt we will be seeing a lot more from this stable, in the meantime we are delighted to welcome Tomoki to Piston. The remix sets off with a full on deep tech vibe, chunky kicks are met with a stand out percussion section with crispy hats and some excellent electro styled drums. A deep, raw bass gets the groove really flowing as those intricate drum patterns let the rhythms loose. Cool spoken vocals litter the sound with some great effects creating cool textures. Stabby synth riffs crop up delivering a real house experience and blend in beautifully with the techier groove. Superb stuff that is definitely not to be missed.

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.
