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.

RICK WADE – I KNOW UR THERE / SEEN THINGS – REMIXES [PISTON RECORDINGS]

Rick Wade’s double hitter I Know Ur There and Seen Things gets the remix treatment from Piston label boss Rogerio Martins and the prolific Bicycle Corporation. Released back in Spring 2017, these two cuts performed very well indeed and we thought they deserved to be brought to the fore once again. House music hero Rick Wade is revered throughout the electronic music community. His career is an illustrious one, becoming involved in a fledgling house music scene in the mid 80’s. He spent his time working hard, DJing at parties, on radio stations and eventually turning his hand at producing music, a signature sound developed and the rest is history. An amazingly talented artist we just love having here at Piston.

JAKHIRA – BOSTON RASCAL (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Jakhira’s next outing on Piston is the delicious deep house groover Boston Rascal which comes backed up with two superb remixes from Rubba J and label boss Rogerio Martins.

His musical roots spread far and wide with some serious bangers across multiple genres.
