Dublin based Irish DJ and producer Cerillo returns to Piston with All Dem Hoes which marks his fourth outing for us and follows the impressive Ill Behaviour from April 2016. He’s also appeared on several compilations over the last couple of years which is a testament to the high quality sounds he dishes out. His tracks are consistently championed by many top jocks including B.Traits BBC Radio 1, David Moreno Ibiza Global Radio, wAFF, Marco Carola, Ibiza Voice, Robert Owens, Solomun, Steve Lawler, Defected Residents, Loco Dice, DJ Sneak, Chus, Dave Seaman, Sam Divine and more. On the DJ front he spins regularly at many events unleashing his superbly crafted sets to the floors and the radio waves.
The Original Mix intros with a nice deep probing bassline and chunky kick drum combi which is soon joined by a crispy hi hat and layering percussions that get the rhythm moving effortlessly. The hypnotic bassline remains a constant throughout and locks you into its grasp for the duration with little respite. A cool vocal comes in giving the track a whole new demeanour and floor appeal. A very subtle acid line starts to creep in on one of the filtered breaks which leads to a wonderful, energetically charged climax before slamming right back into full on mode. Top notch stuff not to be missed.
A Piston firm favourite and all round hugely talented artist Leandro Di is up first on remix duties and once again we are blown away by the sheer quality this guy brings to the table. His last outing for us was back in July 2016 with Spiral Space which was a top pick among many as well as various appearances on several compilations. Always an exciting time to get this guys work through the inbox and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more in the future. The remix intros with a nice punchy kick drum that sets the tone perfectly for a trip into deeper territory. Bright crispy hats come through as warm chord stabs fade in which are in turn joined by a superb low end bassline. Cool vocal snippets litter the sound adding character while beautifully lush pads create some excellent textures in the groove. Perfect deep fodder for the floors.
UK based DJ and producer Alex Bradbury returns to Piston, this time he steps up to the remix plate offering a wonderful take on the original with a more pacey approach. His last outing here was his debut back in the Summer of 2016 with his Spektrum EP which certainly proved popular among many and then in September he appeared on My House Is Your House 13. We can’t wait to hear more from this guy. The remix intros with a cool mixture of percussions and a muted kick that is soon beefed up to a full on pumping bass drum. The percussions really get the rhythm flowing here and lead us up to a superb deep rooted bassline that dominates so much of the track. Cool FX start to appear and we find ourselves locked on to the groove. Subtle synths add some excellent textures to the sound but it’s that bass and winding down FX that carry the most weight here.
