Lisbon based Portuguese DJ and producer Pedro Faria debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb deep and techy fuelled No Looking Back. Since 2012 Pedro has been releasing quality cuts across various labels. He is a lover of music, particularly everything between deep house and tech house. On the DJ front he is a much sought after spinner and he plays at top parties around his hometown and beyond. Delighted to have him on board here at Piston and we hope to see more from him soon.
The Original Mix is a top notch tech house offering that carries a solid drum arrangement made up of chunky kick drums and cool shuffling hats and percussions. A deep mesmerizing bassline weaves through the track as a sinister distorted vocal creeps in. Groovy keys fade in creating a wonderful hybrid tech sound that exudes a deeper vibe. A fantastic weapon for any late night set that will not disappoint.
Up next we have the Gear Remix which is a definite dancefloor destroyer. A solid workout from start to finish fuelled by techy beats and superb groovy elements that will get the booty’s shakin’ no doubt. The intro boasts a muted kick and subtle percussion combi before the kick get a massive boost with an added thump for good measure. Shuffling hats deliver a flowing rhythm as those deep pads start to rise. A pulsating bassline is the big hitter here that blends perfectly with the mesmeric synths and pads. A must have track you do not want to miss.
Lastly we have No More which is a wonderful display of tech house that will ignite any set. A simplistic approach here with a solid drum arrangement creating a nice flowing rhythmic vibe. Distant voices add cool textures to the sound as a deep rooted bassline shores up the low end. As the layers build we find a lot of interesting sounds that combine beautifully, but it’s that strong drum and bass combi that packs the punch here. Perfect fodder for giving any floor a boost.
