Angelo Ferreri & Daniele Kama join forces on our next Piston release with this superb two tracker entitled Wasting Time. Italian DJ and producer Daniele Kama returns to Piston after his remix stint on Hermann Dius’ UK Movement back in December 2015. This Rome based producer is highly respected in the world of electronica having gained lots of support from a host of international DJ’s and working with many other fine artists on various record labels. Joining Daniele is Sicilian born DJ and producer Angelo Ferreri who brings a wealth of musical knowledge to the table having been around the electronic music scene for quite some time. From a young age he was attracted to the Techno sound of the 90’s and pretty soon he found himself using an old Playstation to learn about arrangements. He got into DJing after learning from older jocks and soon he got his first gigs in Italy and then in Europe. 2004 saw him start to produce and he quickly gained attention from many labels. He started his own label – Mood Funk Records soon after and he continues to ply us with only the finest quality sounds.
Wasting Time is a sublime trek deep into the bowels of house music, and all done in a laid back funky groove kinda style. The intro boasts a simple hat pattern before a superbly funky bassline warms the track and gives us a push towards the floor. A plethora of cool drums and percussions form up and deliver a smooth rhythmic flow with that bassline at the forefront. Quirky synths litter the sound and blend effortlessly into the drum dominated arrangement. Top notch stuff not to be missed.
Gimme Something delivers a solid tech house workout with a nice chunky kick drum leading the way as cool crispy hats and wonderfully snappy snares bring in the rhythm in style. Warped vocals come through and drift away to leave a rumbling bassline that generates a powerful groove. The vocals come in and out with a playful manner and give the track a great character while a brilliantly executed drum arrangement keeps the floors rocking all night long on this one, excellent stuff here that will not disappoint.
