Eat Dust aka Portuguese DJ and producer Mario Silva is back at Piston with the impressive two tracker – Anomalia EP which is the follow up to his early 2017 slice Come Together EP. Over the last number of years this guy has released some excellent cuts on various labels including Obscura Recordings, Plastik Galaxy and Dubtek Records to name just a few. He has also shown up on Monog Records back in 2014 with Portrait Illusions and a remix on HedUbble’s Animal Feeling as well as an appearance on Tech House Toolbox 3 for Bonzai Progressive. Always a pleasure to hear new material and we hope to be hearing more soon.
Anomalia delivers a solid, grooving tech house vibe right from the off as chunky kicks lead the way alongside shuffling percussions that also offer a subtle tribal feeling. A deep subby bass come through adding heaps of warm bottom end groove while scattered synths crop up. A soulful vocal eases in to the groove while the break adds more weight behind the tribal elements. One for the late night sessions here, not to be missed.
Lock It Down sets out with a classic punchy kick drum and crispy hi hat combi before rhythmic percussions make their way through. This combination throws up a cool tribal tech vibe that will surely get the floors moving. Deep sub basses are the order of the day here coupled with surreal synths and a cool clubby vocal. High impact stuff for the floors that will not disappoint.
