Maximiliano and Vincent debut on Piston Recordings with the fantastic The Traveler EP which features a sublime slice from the duo as well as a solo effort from Maximiliano. Relative newcomers to the scene, these guys bring a fresh twist on the tech house sound. Max already has several releases under his belt this year while Vincent marks this as his debut release. Both guys come from the DJing world and their sets have wowed many crowds over the years. Great to have them on board and no doubt we’ll be hearing more from them in the future.
Klaus Benedek marks his Piston Recordings debut with the impressive Never Get Out EP. Klaus grew up in a small town near Vienna. His interest in electronic music began during the 90’s techno hype. He spent hours watching video clips on MTV and viva, gaining knowledge about electronic music. In 2004, he began teaching himself to produce. Gathering his inspiration wherever he could, he began collecting 12″ vinyl records the same year and 2 years later got his first DJ gigs. From 2008 till 2010 he was one of the resident DJ’s at the MNML Thursdays in the Camera Club. In 2012 he started, along with Alex Kolodziej, the event series Tellerbetrieb. Currently he finds most of his inspiration in Chicago House, Deep House, Disco and Breakbeat. After releases on labels like Petrol Dollar, Subversaal, Rekooda, Soul Shift Music, Clean and Dirty Recordings and Tanzbar, Klaus launched his own label ForTunea in 2014.
Joyfull Family is made up of 3 like-minded Italian DJ’s and producers, Cristian Carpentieri, Guido Nemola and Chico Perulli and they return to Piston with the superb Mediterraneo. Ten years ago these guys got together to create underground tracks and house remixes. Their 2005 hit – Da Breaker got plenty of airtime, notably through gaining top spot on various European charts including Pete Tong’s Essential Selection. They went on to remix for international stars like Corrina Joseph and Shawn Christopher as well as a remix for Cajmere and Dajae’s Brighter Days. Their last outing – Keep On Dubbin’ EP – from Summer 2017 gained great support and we’ve no doubt this one will follow suit.
Belgian DJ and producer Marius Acke marks his Piston Recordings debut with the superb Tropical Island EP. In the early 90’s Marius was inspired by the grooves of Chaka Khan, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Bobby Brown and Masters at Work. It wasn’t long before he started DJing and thinking about making his own beats. He has been producing deep house on the Wally’s Groove World label and his album Balance was nominated for the Zamu awards. Marius also teamed up with WGW owner Koenie and bass player Rubba J. Together they form the MAYAKU collective, and have releases on labels like Grayhound, Outergaze, Tom Bone Vibratig Music, Heading Home recordings, Aroma and Wha roots? He also works alongside Rubba J on their Deepwater project and he regularly spins at various clubs including Café d’Anvers, Café Capital, Bar Tabac where you can always expect a deep, warm, groovy and driving DJ set.
Argentina based DJ and producer duo Agustin Dutari and Mauro Mosciaro return to Piston with the superb Time On Air EP. We last caught a glimpse of their studio talents with their debut here back in April 2017 with the fantastic Behind The Beat which gained great support. These guys are two clear examples of how Argentinean dance culture is shifting and moving, especially towards the rhythms of house. In the studio they combine their skill sets to produce only the finest quality beats and grooves. Agustin utilises his DJ skills, which he has presented at top clubs including Pacha, Ibiza and in showcases for Ibiza Global Radio. He has also travelled the beautiful Balearic Islands playing at different beach clubs and bars such as Sands, Delano, White, Magic Boat Party and Veto Social Club. Mauro combines his career as a music producer with DJing. He runs his own studio and when he’s not laying down house laden beats he’s working with bands and solo artists as a sound engineer. Great to see them back, and this time we’re in for some tasty deep house grooves.
