Buenos Aires based DJ and producer Ivo C debuts on Piston with the superb It's Time EP. Ivo has been releasing quality content since 2013 and his work has appeared on the likes of Deepmentality Records, Club Rayo Disquets, Kermesse Music, Votan Records and more. He puts in a lot of time DJing at various events around his hometown and beyond and his sets are renowned for pumping the crowd with energy and dynamic mixing. Great to have him on board at Piston and no doubt we'll be seeing more from him in the future.
First up we have It's Time with a wonderfully distinct drum arrangement made up of a pumping kick drum, crispy sharp hats and a shuffling percussion section that would force anyone to move. A deep and resonating bassline sits perched on the bottom end dominating the groove effortlessly while smooth synths take control in the mid-range. The main synth riff slowly rises to prominence throughout the track, delivering its soft release. A proper moody slice of tech that will not disappoint.
Highway intros with an upbeat vibe made up of punchy kicks and slicing, crispy hi hats. The kicks carry a superb bassy after tone that fills the spectrum beautifully. The bassline proper surges onto the track delivering a top notch bouncy groove that joins the various percussions resulting in a superb shuffling rhythm. Short, sharp keys add cool textures to the sound as that bass probes into every corner of the track. The break throws up some very cool pads creating a surreal tech fuelled groove that will definitely grab a lot of attention.
