Alex Galvan and Filizola join forces for their collaborative Piston Recordings debut with the fantastic ‘Tarantino’s House’ EP.
California-born and now residing in Mexico City, Alex Galvan is a seasoned music producer and DJ who has travelled across the world in pursuit of musical enlightenment. Growing up he was always influenced by music, learning classical piano, jazz piano and the basics of beat making from a young age before advancing his studies to audio engineering. Now, he is focused on his solo project as a live performer, driving his sets from deep classical house to an experimental percussive upbeat groove that takes you into the cosmic realm. His work has reached high chart positions on major portals, recently in 2018 Alex reached the top 100 on Beatport Deep House Charts as #64 with his single ‘Into The City’ on RNGDS Music and he has share the stage with a host of top artists such as Crew Love, Lee Foss, Roderic, Damian Lazarus and M.A.N.D.Y and more.
Filizola first became involved with music in 1990, then in 1993 he started to learn to play musical instruments. He is known around Mexico City on the DJ and producer circuit for his remixes and edits, these were played on local radio and in various clubs around the city. Most notably, he made a remix of a Duran Duran track which the group highlighted on their Twitter account. Sharing the stage with several top artists such as Purple Disco Machine, Sammy D (PillowTalk) and a B2B with KOLOMBO has put his name among the best and there’s no doubt he will continue to be a popular figure on the scene. Great to have both guys on board at Piston.
‘Tarantino’s House’ delivers a solid, groovy tech house joint filled with a series of quirky sounds and a very cool spoken vocal. Tight beats lead the way headed by a nice thumping kick drum and crispy hi-hat combo. A nod to the film director indeed, the guitar licks are the perfect representation of this. The track is constructed around various sounds that converge into a sublime offering that is most definitely not to be missed.
‘Believe It’ intros with an organic crackling-vinyl sound before a chunky beat comes through alongside tribalistic percussions. Deep and groovy piano stabs beef up the vibe as a subby, rumbling bassline dominates the low end. Cool, funky riffs line up against orchestral sequences for that surreal moment, giving the track a unique character making this a must have to build up the party atmosphere.
Release Date: November 12th, 2018
