Spanish DJ and producer Juanma Llopis returns to Piston after a bit of a hiatus with the excellent Sowilo. We last caught a glimpse of this guy’s work here back in 2015 with Going Insane which was very well received indeed. Juanma is a lover of music and is able to turn his hand to various genres, but Deep House is where he mostly resides. His DJing has taken him all over Spain and he has appeared on labels like, Joyfull Family Records, Sound Mass Records and Vandalism Musique.
Sowilo takes us into the depths of house music thanks to the deep and warm sounds oozing out of the groove. A tight drum section led by a chunky kick drum keeps the feet moving while deep basses provide that warming feeling. Quirky synth shots blend effortlessly with intricate percussion patterns that create a beautifully textured sound. The contrast between the deeper sounds and brighter melodies is what gives this track its edge, definitely one for the floors here.
Faker intros with a solid punchy kick drum which is soon joined by crispy hats and rhythmic percussions. Deep chords fade in giving the track a rich vibe while a deep probing bassline keeps the groove locked in. Various sounds layer up creating a complex tapestry of rhythms that are perfectly aligned for maximum impact. A solid cut that will not disappoint.
