Portuguese DJ and producer Mario Silva aka Eat Dust returns to Piston with another fine slice of Tech House on his latest offering entitled Invaders EP. Mario is no stranger to these shores as he made his debut here back at the start of 2016 with the Savages EP which gained great support from all over. We’re delighted to see him back and no doubt we’ll be seeing more from this guy in the future.
First up we have Invaders which gets going with a nice solid kick and a cool shuffling hat sequence that will surely get butts moving towards the floors. The track takes on a smooth persona with subtle synths delivering a bit of funk to the sound. Sprinklings of acid and vocal snippets are littered throughout and add cool textures to the tech groove. The big hitter here though is that bassline as it effortlessly meanders through the sound ramping up the groove in style. A nice phat sound that will be a welcome addition in any set.
Shades Of Love intros with a punchy kick drum and bright hats and percussions that form into a cool rhythmic flow. The track breaks to reveal a cool vocal before the beats come back with a superb phat bassline that probes through the sound beautifully. The tech grooves ooze out of this one and has that dancey vibe the floors are gonna love. The vocals continue throughout and are joined by cool chord stabs that have a nice retro edge. Top notch stuff you will not want to miss.
