Italian DJ and producer Luigi De Santis aka GgDex returns to Piston alongside his newest creation KEYGI with the fantastic Yes I Am EP. Luigi is no stranger to these shores, his last outing Put The Needle gained great support across the board and rocked out many venues with its deep and dirty vibes. Since then he has shown up on various compilations for Bonzai and Piston as well as releases on other labels. KEYGI is Luigi’s newest creation and what a way to introduce, we hope to see more from this guy and his persona’s in the future.
First up we have the title track Yes I Am which in short is a relentless slice of deep techy grooves with a probing bass that fills the sound beautifully. The track is somewhat minimal with a cool drum arrangement made up a punchy kick and shuffling hats with a few percussions to keep the rhythm loose. Throughout the track we are treated to a gritty vocal that delivers that classic house vibe while the music carries us along for the ride with a cool tech edge. Excellent stuff that will sit snugly into any set.
Black Leo intros with a nice chunky kick alongside a round of percussions that layer up providing a cool rhythmic flow. The track breaks to reveal a scraping synths that cut out a nice deep house vibe. The bass comes through and dominates as it winds its way through the sound delivering a solid groove for the track to build on. On the main break those synths get the focus before we are thrust back to the main sound for the duration. Mesmerizing sounds for the floors here that you will not want to miss.
Sweet Beat sets out with a warm urban groove filled with gliding chords and a tight drum arrangement. The drum patterns dish out smooth rhythms with an a very much laidback approach. The deep bassline moves the track ever so smoothly and takes the groove to a deeper level. On the break we are led into a wonderful sequence that offers up more of those warm dreamy chords before the beats and bass return to get the floors livened up. A welcome addition to any set for sure.
