Piston Recordings’ next adventures in vinyl come in the form of the superb album sampler from Ritz and his latest studio album titled Meditation. Portuguese DJ and producer Ricardo Cardoso aka Ritz has been a stalwart for us over the years, he continues to deliver the goods, raising the bar with every release. We got excited when he told us about his new album so we just had to make sure we selected four choice cuts to be etched onto wax, furthering the vinyl revolution.
First up on the A-side we have the smooth and dreamy vibes of Acid Sundays which takes us on a post-club ride that will regenerate the mind and body. The A2 slot features Roads which heads for the floor with its straight up 4×4 solid beat alongside mesmerizing chords and groovy bassline.
On the flip in B1 Dusty embarks on an urbanised groove delivering a solid deep house joint that will keep any set going in the right direction. B2 holds the title track, Meditation which starts to get into much deeper territory. Tight drums and shuffling percussion join a deep probing bassline as smooth pads engage the senses, drawing us down to the depths. Vibrant chord stabs cut through the darker elements creating a dynamic groove.
An absolute must have for any serious vinyl junkie.
