Spanish artist Oscar Holgado debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb two tracker Quiddity. Residing in Amsterdam, Oscar is passionate about music in all its forms, he has already amassed an impressive back catalogue on various labels over the years where he has delivered his unique productions. Great to have him on board at Piston and we hope to see more in the future.
Quiddity intros with a rich chord that unleashes a wave of warmth that is enhanced by beautifully placed vinyl noise. Nice and chunky kick drums come in alongside building percussions and a subtle bassline that peeks out from the depths just enough to get you locked in. The chords are the big player here as they hypnotise the mind and get you into that deep house mood. Contrasting strings and pads add smooth textures to the sound as well as subtle FX. Excellent stuff that is not to be missed.
Le Groove Est Dans Le Move sets off with a very smooth synth sound with a sharp clap taking us up to the punchy beats and soft percussions. The drum section layers up brilliantly creating a steady flowing rhythm while a funky ass bassline does a fine job in getting the booty’s shakin’. On the break we’re taken down the rabbit hole into a surreal world filled with colourful keys before starting to build back into the main groove. The track feels groovy and would sit perfectly in a late night session, a must have no doubt.
