Italian DJ and producer Alessio Rizzo makes a welcome return to Piston with the superb All I Wanna Do Is Shake. This time around Alessio is flying solo after he teamed up with fellow Italian producer for their debut back in 2015 with Breakfast In Lebanon. Having played many venues as a DJ he honed his skills and musical knowledge to make the leap into production, and the results so far have been outstanding. Delighted to have him back once more and no doubt we’ll be seeing more in the future.
The Original Mix gets you in the mood for a good shakin with a bright upbeat vibe that will surely move the floors. Nice chunky kick drums lead the charge here as a deep sub bass lurks on the low end against some very cool mid range sounds. Sketchy vocals litter the sound and add cool textures. The groove is lifted with a tight drum arrangement that unleashes a flowing rhythmic vibe. Top notch stuff and a definite must have.
Naples based DJ and producer Giacomo De Falco heads up remix duties and delivers a solid slice of tech house for our listening pleasure. Giacomo started out with a firm grasp of Techno and Minimal, he strived to organise parties in his hometown and soon found himself at some top clubs. 2013 saw him enter the producing world and he has since seen releases on many labels including ADSR Records, In Dushe, Sound Vessel, Cubek, Blackpoint Records, Async Records and recently featured on the newly formed Skull & Tones. On the remix we get drawn into a superb tech house flow right from the off as chunky kicks take centre stage with an offset crispy hat getting the rhythm flowing. A very cool stuttering bassline finds its way into the sound and mesmerizes throughout. Perfectly tweaked vocals and classic crowd noises litter the sound alongside warm chords that pop up from time to time. A solid tech houser that will be a welcome addition in any set.
