Monotronik are Portuguese DJ and producer duo Freddy Lourenzo and D’Joseph Alves and they return to Piston Recordings with the impressive three track slice Do To Me EP. Their last outing here – Subculture – was very well received indeed having landed on many charts and playlists. The pair DJ regularly all over the place and are known for their tight, groovy sets. They’ve put out several top quality cuts recently on Underground Source Records and Sync Forward, moving between tech house and deep house. Great to see them back once more.
Athens, Greece based Tolis Q aka Apostolis Palantzas debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb three track EP entitled Foolish Behaviour. DJ, producer, remixer, label owner, party maker and entrepreneur are just some of the ways to describe this hugely talented artist. His love for music is transparent through his devotion to his calling, the reward comes in the shape of success having produced and signed tracks through his label Quantized Music which have been supported by some of the world’s cream of the crop. Regarded all over Greece for DJ sets bursting with euphoria, style and attitude, always unleashing his potential with powerful dance floor sessions that serve as both unique and unforgettable experiences. With a full discography of productions, collaboration projects and remixes to his credit, Tolis’ brand of sound delivers sultry grooves, pulsing deep baselines, and intensely energetic tracks that work magnificently in the hands of DJs as well as big sound systems to the swankiest of lounges all over the globe. Delighted to have him on board at Piston.
Argentinean DJ and producer duo Agustin Dutari and Mauro Mosciaro return to Piston with more tech house grooves on the two track Momentum EP. We got a nice treat with their debut Behind The Beat a few months ago and we’ve no doubt this one will follow suit. 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. Working together for the last couple of years they are able to hone in on each other’s ideas with some very nice results indeed.
Bilboni aka Slovene musician Goran Bilbija debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the wonderful two tracker entitled Off Road EP. Goran’s early starts in the field were marked by attending and concluding a music school, where he learnt to play the accordion. As a teenager, his passion for music accelerated to the point where he would spend all his monthly pocket money on borrowing/buying new records. Growing up, he started tasting the club life. Drawn by the electronic sounds, he would always be the last to go home. At that point he was inspired by the early Euro sounds such as LA Style, as well as EuroDance, Culture Beat, 2 Unlimited and Captain Jack to name a few. As a professional sportsman (handball), Goran had to give up on his music dreams for a while, yet he never completely stopped his production. At the age of 20, he established a successful music duo 2 Alive and signed quite a few contracts with various record labels. After years of music production, Goran finally decided to dedicate his time fully to music, issuing his very own tracks. Inspired by world famous DJ’s, such as Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Joseph Capriati, Luciano, Julian Jeweil and others, he sees himself most in tech house vibes. Being fully committed to his fans, he is always open for new suggestions and critique. Convinced that self-awareness is the key to delivering quality, you can certainly expect no less than a technical perfection of mesmerizing beats.
Barletta, Italy based DJ and producer Michele Battaglia debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb tech house fuelled Getta EP. Michele’s passion for music became evident from a young age. He discovered a whole world of new sounds and DJ’s which inspired him and fed his desire in music. Tech House and techno are two genres he feels most comfortable in and since 2015 he has seen release on labels such as Sousa Label and Shaman Records. A rising talent with lots to offer, hopefully we’ll be seeing more soon but for now enjoy this solid cut.

Alessandro De Tuglie marks his Piston Recordings debut with two superb tech house joints on Vintage Vibes. Hailing out of Bari, Italy, Alessandro started to show an interest in music from a young age which led him to discover DJing, and then he caught the music bug.
