Detroit based, prolific house music producer and DJ Rick Wade makes a welcome return to Piston, after a bit of a hiatus, with the superb Daedalus. It was back in 2013 when we last got a glimpse of this highly respect artist with his very much revered, Zombie. With a career spanning over 20 years, Rick utilises music as a release which in turn allows him to further his ideas and his approach to creating stunning DJ sets. A product of the heyday of deep house Rick continues to ply his trade through various radioshows with his fresh, soulful and downright dancy sets. Great to see him back with this fantastic offering and we hope to see more in the future.

RICK WADE – DAEDALUS (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Detroit based, prolific house music producer and DJ Rick Wade makes a welcome return to Piston, after a bit of a hiatus, with the superb Daedalus. It was back in 2013 when we last got a glimpse of this highly respect artist with his very much revered, Zombie. With a career spanning over 20 years, Rick utilises music as a release which in turn allows him to further his ideas and his approach to creating stunning DJ sets. A product of the heyday of deep house Rick continues to ply his trade through various radioshows with his fresh, soulful and downright dancy sets. Great to see him back with this fantastic offering and we hope to see more in the future.

The Original Mix of Daedalus intros with a tight kick and sharp percussions that build up a flowing rhythmic vibe alongside cool slapped drums. Smooth, soulful keys beckon releasing a full on deep infectious groove that lasts long into the night. The bass offers great depth to the sound and delivers a somewhat laidback approach in contrast to the dancy beats. Cool, heartfelt vocals come through and add to the poignant soulful vibe. A real nice slice of deep here that will get a few heads turning for sure.

Piston head honcho Rogerio Martins delivers his Deep Down Inside Remix. Aside from running the label on a day to day basis, Rogerio certainly knows how to produce the goods. His recent vinyl cut, Otherwise Unknown, shot up the vinyl charts with ease and gained a large support base from across the world with the digital release looking likely to follow suit. Already in 2015 we have seen great things from this guy and rest assured there will be much, much more to come. The remix intros with a nice big pumping kick with sharp claps on the downbeat alongside a fantastic deep bass line. That bass line melds beautifully into the sound and contrasts perfectly with those bright and crispy hats. A solid groove is formed as the layers build and the introduction of smooth, warm keys ramps up the soulful elements. A super tight production that will definitely light up the floors.

Paradox intros with a cool breaks drum arrangement and is soon joined by an array of acid style plucks. Organically charged chords come through resulting in a dark atmospheric vibe that is coupled with high strings resulting in cool contrasting textures. An innovative drum arrangement keeps the groove on track and offers a cool listening experience which you will not want to miss.

CARLO CALDARERI – CUZ I’M KILLIN (PISTON RECORDINGS)

It’s been just over a year since we last saw Carlo at Piston HQ, we’re delighted to have him back with his latest offering Cuz I’m Killing which comes with no less than four top notch remixes from Rogerio Martins, Marcus Raute, JR From Dallas and Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a nice and smooth kick and hat combo. Cool percussions form up providing a flowing rhythm which takes us to the main feature on this track, the bassline. The bass sits perfectly as it meanders through the sound giving off a head nodding rhythmic vibe as cool vocals scatter throughout. A very cool slice of house that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

DJ, producer and Piston founder Rogerio Martins is first up on remix duty. As ever Rogerio spends most of his time managing the label as well as many other things including Piston Recordings radio show. His last outing Gonna Be Mine saw great support and was licensed for the Enter Ibiza 2014 compilation, featured in Apollonia’s Terrace Mix. The remix intros with a punchy kick and a vocal sample on the offset as bright and crispy hats follow. The star of the show begins to emerge in the shape of spicy chords that filter in and out beautifully. A deep subtle bassline sits back allowing those chords to shine while on the break smooth pads rise up and give off that true deep house vibe. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.

Next up we have the Marcus Raute Re-pitched Mix. Back in the summer of this year we saw Marcus’ Samplin’ Memories EP which was very well received indeed and since then he also got a showing on the Deep Worx 9 compilation. No doubt we are in for another treat with this remix. The intro sets off with a very cool percussion arrangement filled with crispy hats, sharp claps and snappy snares to the backdrop of a chunky kick. A deep-rooted bass soon bursts through and dominates the sound with its throbbing groove as percussive layers continue to build throughout. Superb stuff yet again from Marcus and definitely one for the floors.

JR From Dallas delivers his superb Raw Mix and gets the deep house vibes flowing with a super tight cut. It’s been a while since JR has been around these shores but we know that when he does reappear we can expect something special. The intro boasts a cool percussive driven arrangement that continues to build bringing a smooth rhythmic vibe. A short break reveals cool vocals and leads into a wonderful strolling bassline that will get asses shakin in no time. A relentless groove ensues as your senses are raided by the tight drum and percussion patterns making this a definite must for those bouncy house parties.

Rounding off this superb release we have the Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax Re-vocal Mix. The guys are no strangers to Piston and tracks like this are the reason. Summer of this year saw their track Let It gain lots of support from many quarters. We hope to see more from this duo in the future. The remix sets off with a cool punchy kick as the percussive elements build getting the rhythm flowing. A deep throbbing bass complete with the most fantastic tail end warms the track beautifully as the vocals begin to come through. The break is filled with various vocal samples and FX with the percussions keeping the vibe alive before we get right back into the main groove. Top notch stuff not to be missed.
