Piston Recordings represents the Portuguese physical and digital label founded in 2007 by Rogerio Martins, label manager and A&R, to fill the void in Portugal's independent dance music labels dedicated to young and fresh new talent.

In Piston Recordings itís not all about the music. Itís also about growing and nurturing a family of artists with their music and establishing strong bonds with them. Does not matter if its Deep House, Techno, Chillout or whatever you want to call it, to us what matters is the people behind it.

With no strings attached to any specific music style, this gave Piston Recordings the liberty to release quality dance music would it be Techno, House, Minimal, Deep -House, etc.

Rogério Martins was born in 1974 in Setúbal, Portugal, and since a tender age his passion for music was always present, either collecting records or recording radioshows to exaustion.

It was not until 1995, during the big electronic boom in Portugal that his interest for deejaying growed and soon after he was already playing bars and clubs in his hometown.

Fast forward to 2004, where he saw his first record release, Deep Flight 01 and straight after a series of remixes and originals were starting to see the daylight in several labels like Look At You Records or Player Records.

Back in 2007 he then started his own label, Piston Recordings, where since then he has been releasing several works, originals and remixes and getting praises from various top djís in the world like Laurent Garnier, John Acquaviva, etc.

Nowadays he keeps working on Piston Recordings with fellow artists Accatone and Piek, DJíing regularly nationally and internationally in Spain, Germany, Belgium, etc and preparing a bunch of original works to be released in Piston Recordings.
Today Piston continues to deliver it's promise and is always looking out for new and uprising talent who need a solid platform to release their music!
