Lex returns to Piston Recordings and this time he joins forces with Esteban De Haro and Kel to deliver the superb Three Laws Of Audio. DJ, producer, artist, label owner, Alex (Lex) of Athens Greece, represents a way of life that embraces innovation, evolution and communion through sound. His last outing on Piston was alongside Dimi Wilson on Thoughts About It which picked up a lot of support and featured in many charts and playlists. He runs his own labels and has amassed quite an impressive back catalogue, great to see him back for more and hope to see even more in the future. Esteban De Haro debuts on Piston and brings a refined tech house sound to the mix, definitely an artist to watch. Kel also debuts on Piston and brings a wealth of experience to the sound. Since 2007 Kel has dished out quality cuts on various labels and has worked alongside Lex on their recent cut Jexin on Frole Records.
First up we have Lex (Athens) & Esteban De Haro with Three Laws Of Audio which intros with a smooth and groovy drum arrangement that lulls you into the sound. A solid rhythmic flow comes out of the shuffling hats and beautifully arranged percussions as bright synth notes ease in alongside stuttered vocals. A deep, walking bassline comes through to take over and brings the sound deeper, delivering a solid tech house groove to get the floors pumping. A very cool track indeed with a plethora of FX that blend together perfectly creating a rich texture that will most definitely appeal to many.
Next we have Lex (Athens) featuring Kel with Texas Maggot. The intro here boasts a strong, punchy kick drum and shuffling hats alongside a sharp clap. Bright crispy hi hats come through and cut through the bassy tail of the kicks like a knife. A surreal vibe takes over when the clangy synth chords come into play alongside a deep meandering bassline. The groove is deep here and the collection of warm sounds and smooth vocals will keep it there. Top notch stuff indeed, definitely not to be missed.
