Piston Recordings is back on plastic with its third vinyl outing. “Ghetto Tales EP” delivers four superb deep house cuts from top quality artists including label boss Rogerio Martins, JR From Dallas, Dimitry Liss and J.Cub.
First up is Piston head honcho Rogerio with his wonderfully deep “We Need To”. This track gets right down to business with a super tight arrangement filled with chunky kicks and crispy hats. It’s hard to sit still as the track builds with suave deep house chords, cool vocal samples and later on sweeping pads that binds the track up brilliantly.
J.Cub aka UK based DJ and producer Jacob Kelly debuts on Piston with the deeply delightful “Don’t Stop”. The track has a very distinct deep flavour form the off, cool snares are accompanied with equally cool vocal samples and a throbbing bassline that will have any floor shuddering. A strong solid groover with a gritty edge, top stuff.
The very popular Dimitry Liss is up next with his multi faceted track “Pimptastic Waterloo”. Dimitry has a knack for combing raw, urban vibes and deep house grooves, which he does brilliantly. Cool and sophisticated house chords are married with a very street fuelled beat with a host of classic vocal samples thrown in, superb!
JR From Dallas aka Jerome Asselin completes this package with the energetic “Down Society”. Deep house vibes are evident but with an injection of pure energy which gives it a unique flavour. Lots going on here with a tight arrangement tying things up beautifully. The bassline pounds the senses and distant vocal sounds add texture to the vibe, top notch!

Dimitry raises the bar yet again with another awesome deep tech vibe on Eyepatch, the talent this guy has just gets better and better. This newest cut is backed up with a very impressive list of remixers.
Kicking off with the original mix we get a solid deep grooving workout, thumping kicks and sharp hats build the rhythm and gets rounded up with a brilliant vocal. Top notch stuff that will be a great tune on the floors all over.
The head of Piston Recordings, Rogerio Martins, steps up on remix duty with his Next To My Body Remix. Rogerio turns up the heat a bit here and takes us deeper into the groove, deep basses and tight drums get us to an absolute stunner of a break. The vocal comes in and the funk begins with some brilliant chord work, big sound here and will be a top pick for many jocks.
Eyepatch regular Wonji takes control and delivers a sublime take with a straight in your face tech ride Taking on a more surreal feel with long reverbed sounds and retaining a solid groove, great use of the vocal also and this is a tune that will keep you hooked throughout.
Popular remixer Project KF keeps the party rocking with another fine deep tech fuelled effort on the mixing desk. Darker edged vibe with a hypnotic feel, lots of nice samples come and go with a huge rise to the first break that kicks back with the now familiar vocal. Big party sound on this one and definitely one for a lot of floors all over.
Piston Recordings has come a long way and gained the support of top jocks all over the world since its creation in 2007. Now in its fifth year, and with an ever increasing artist roster, the quality continues to flow in style. Coming soon we have a compilation, “Best Of Piston Recordings 2012” to celebrate a successful year for the Portuguese outfit. The compilation consists of superb deep house and techno cuts from an impressive line-up including, Piek, Brett Lawrence, Accatone, Baltj More, Daniel Karma, Garcy Noise, Oraa, Valeria Croft, Vasco, Lights Electronica, newly signed Dimitry Liss and label founder Rogerio Martins. Piston prides itself on being not just about music but also about building a family of artists creating special bonds that will stand the test of time.
Many of the tracks have featured in playlists from Richie Hawtin, Nick Harris and Michel De Hey to name a few, with Richie Hawtin hammering Piek – Susurros multiple times in one weekend. Tracks have also been featured heavily on download portals and are included in a lot of DJ charts as well. Rogerio has also been busy on the club circuit with a host of label nights gaining popularity across Portugal.
You can expect the very best on this compilation from the deep tech fuelled grooves of Valeria Croft’s “Hippy”, sublime blissed out beats from Vasco with “It’s never Too Late” and the solid deep house rhythm on Accatone’s “Future Us”. Rogerio Martins “I’ll Bring You Home”, Brett Lawrence’s “Remember That Jack” and GarcyNoise feat. Bizzarre DJ’s “Pussycats Howl” adds deep funk while a mixture of deep house and tech rounds up a brilliant year for Piston.
Piston’s artists enjoy much success on the DJ circuit and are also in demand for remixes on various labels and guest mixes on radio stations all over Europe.
The future for Piston is bright with many more projects in the works and with previous releases on vinyl being well received this can only mean more to come.

Based in the UAE, Russian born artist Dimitry Liss graces the shores of Piston Recordings with his new cut “Downside Swindle EP” which is backed up with super remixes. Having signed a new exclusive deal with Bonzai, it’s clear that this guy has a lot offer and this EP is testament to that.
Kicking off with the original mix of “Into The Night”, a deep funky slice of pure house, excellent bassline with a very laidback groove and a very effective continuous organ synth hypnotises the mind, add into this a really cool vocal and you’ve got a track that will hold up in any club.
First up on remix duty is Portuguese deep house star Accatone aka Jose Reis with his remix of “Into The Night”. Jose is heavily involved with Piston along with the founder and close friend Rogerio Martins. The remix kicks off quite minimal but soon builds to an awesome house vibe with the great vocal from the original taking centre stage, deep basses and crisp sharp hats create a sweet groove which will make sure this has a lot of plays.
Pistons head honcho Rogerio Martins returns to the mixing desk after a brief hiatus to deliver the same quality production that keep his label at the forefront of the house scene. His remix of “Into The Night” really is an amazing insight into the deeper side of house. Soulful vibes kick off this remix and the vocal sweeps in and out with some very nifty FX work. Cool organ sound fills the arrangement with a grungy type bass coming in midway, really well crafted remix of the highest standard and sure to hitting the floors big time.
“Killa Dime” Cold Cut Mix is a sublime piece of deep house that really gets the toes tapping, surreal synths dominate with a very cool vocal over a laidback groove. Very impressive production from Dimitry and definitely taking deep house in a different direction.
Finally we have the delectable and funky “Midnight On Wax”, deep funky vibes take control, this tune builds up to a frenzy of awesome house organs and stabs, different vocal one shots from both male and female add a cool texture, late night parties will be queuing this up for a while.
