RICK WADE – I KNOW UR THERE (ROGERIO MARTINS REMIX) FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Rogerio Martins is up first on remix duties for I Know Ur There and once again he delivers a super fine slice of groovy deep house music. A formidable presence on the Portuguese electronic music scene, Martins’ mission is to provide quality sounds nurtured from up and coming artists and veterans alike. For over 10 years now this has been a reality and, from time to time, we’re lucky enough to get exquisite sounds from the man himself. Here Martins doesn’t hold back as he unleashes powerful kick drums and noisy distorted hi hats that pack a massive punch. A deep pulsating bassline dominates the low end as beautiful deep house chords rise up from the depths. The vocal come through on the break to give the track a club vibe. The break also features a rich hi string and climaxes with a nice snare roll before those monster kicks returns for the duration. A solid slice form the boss that will not disappoint.

THE SLUM VAGABUNDS – CONSPIRACY EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Lisbon based music duo The Slum Vagabunds aka Syper and Vanhel return to Piston with delicious Conspiracy EP. Syper and Vanhell’s first outing here – Solace EP – was very well received indeed with a lot of support and, no doubt this newest effort will follow suit. The guys got together back in 2011, which is also the year they joined Fuse Records. They share a common identity strengthened by eclectic tastes and a creative freedom that allows them to run all the spoils of electronic music without any boundaries. They are attentive to the reality of the world we all live in and they arise as the representative name of memory and awareness to the imbalance that still exists in this so called modern world, where no one is absolutely saved. Inspired by the underground, The Slum Vagabunds present themselves on an alternative line, far from the mainstream, which is what makes their brand imprint gain strength in musical aspects ranging from deep house to modern techno.

He understood that scratching and cutting was an important form of entertainment and this led to him generating a collection of vinyl ranging from funk to disco and pop to new wave. from here to collect discs ranging from funk to disco, from pop to new wave. In the late 80s and early 90s Italy experienced the house phenomenon and this appealed to him very much and brought him into contact with many DJ’s. He soon discovered the Balearic beat after a Summer in Ibiza and found that house music was his passion. Over the years he has played alongside the likes of Jose de Divina, DJ Oliver, Willie Graff, Tuccillo, Alfredo, Pippi, Jon Sa Trinxa and many more.

VICTOR SORIANO – NOVATION (ORIGINAL MIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Novation is a solid house joint that is powered by a strong drum section and a deeply probing bassline. Cool voices are scattered throughout the sound while bright high strings compete with warmer, lush pads. Stabby synths mesmerize as the groove takes hold, giving us a perfect reason to take to the floors. The break lets loose on the synths before we’re thrust back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch stuff indeed.
