DIMITRY LISS – DOWNTOWN SWINDLE EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

 

 

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.

Rogério Martins was born in 1974 in Setúbal, Portugal, and since a tender age his passion for music was always present, either collecting records or recording radioshows to exaustion.

It was not until 1995, during the big electronic boom in Portugal that his interest for deejaying growed and soon after he was already playing bars and clubs in his hometown.

Fast forward to 2004, where he saw his first record release, Deep Flight 01 and straight after a series of remixes and originals were starting to see the daylight in several labels like Look At You Records or Player Records.

Back in 2007 he then started his own label, Piston Recordings, where since then he has been releasing several works, originals and remixes and getting praises from various top dj’s in the world like Laurent Garnier, John Acquaviva, etc…

Nowadays he keeps working on Piston Recordings with fellow artists Accatone and Piek, DJ’ing regularly nationally and internationally in Spain, Germany, Belgium, etc and preparing a bunch of original works to be released in Piston Recordings.

BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – EPISODE 40, 41 & 42

EPISODE 40: Fab Code – The Glitch (Mint & Mustard Recordings)

At an early age Fab was bewitched by music. It was around 6 years of age that he was attracted by the sounds of soul, funk and later disco, funky, new-wave playing from his parents jukebox. Rocked to the sounds of Tamla Motown, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Barry White, KC & The Sunshine Band and later Kraftwerk, Human League, Depeche Mode and many others, he built up a strong and diverse music background dominated by rhythm and groove.

Freshly landed in Manchester, his new home, he went back to work and returned to the recording studio to relaunch his career as a producer / composer. He released his first tracks in 2010 on Belgian label Kiss My Beat Records (KMB) and has now signed with Bonzai Music to release some material on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks and Mint & Mustard labels.

Being the resident DJ of one of the biggest clubs in Spain, Txitxarro, and already with licensed tracks to high profile compilations like Roger Sanchez’s Release Yourself, this is one highly expected release in our catalog.

On top of that we got Piek and the label head honcho Rogerio Martins on remix duties.

Despite being born into a conservative Chinese family, Kevin Cheung defied all rules and expectations and from a young age set on the path to become a serious player in electronic music, embarking on a 10 year journey to hone his art into the weapon it is today.

Debuting in the city of Hong Kong, Kevin subsequently travelled to the UK to learn the art of production and DJing, after completing a degree in audio engineering at OIART, Kevin moved to the capital of Canada’s nightlife to take his music to the next level. He quickly established himself as a serious player, earning his first weekly residency alongside DJ Mark Oliver. Opening and closing weekly for Mark with 3 hour sets, Kevin Cheung had the opportunity to hone his art to perfection alongside one of Toronto’s most influential DJs.

Building on this success, Kevin landed several residencies in Toronto and in 2010 began collaborating with other upcoming producers. Kevin also works as sound designer and editor for the Ontario Arts Council which funded a documentary on the house music scene, the Toronto Sounds Project.

This release comes with the original mix plus three remixes from Markus Ilgner, Gr-oy and Adrian S featuring Yisell Sanchez.
