Manchester based DJ and producer Wrighty debuts on Piston with Drop The Bass. Wrighty has been around the scene for a while now and boasts a very impressive back catalogue which includes originals and remixes on labels like Digital-Muzik and Bedroom Muzik. He delves into Deep and Tech House and here we get a fine example of his skills.
Drop The Bass intros with a classic punchy kick and sharp hat combo that sets the rhythms off smoothly. Rich pads and a very cool synth riff fade through and take us up to the monster bass that really gets the grooves flowing in the track with its raw analogue sound. Classic vocal samples add cool character to the track and will be easily recognisable. The break brings those pads and synths back with the vocal samples being the dominant force before we get slammed right back into this relentless groove. Top notch cut and not to be missed.
Can You Feel It gives off an energetic vibe from the get go with pounding kicks and rhythmic percussions. The beats fade to reveal a dark bassline as an eerie pad rises before the bass takes over and settles us into this solid groove. Very cool and perfectly tweaked synth stabs give a retro feel to the sound which is enhanced by vocal samples on the break. An absolute slamming track that will no doubt be a feature on many sets.
