His last outing ‘Definition’ on Bonzai Progressive was very well received indeed.

German DJ and producer Jonny Calypso is back with this brilliant two tracker, Girls Gone Wild. His last outing, Definition was well received and no doubt we will be treated to more of the same on this one. You can catch Jonny on upcoming Bonzai Basik Beats radio episodes soon.
The title track, Girls Gone Wild, intros with a nice big phat kick and a deep rooted bass combi. The percussion arrangements build nicely giving off a smooth rhythmic flow as distant arps form up in the background. The bassline keeps a relentless course as it pulsates through the sound beautifully while some very cool and subtle synth work goes off to great effect. The break downs are a showcase for the percussive elements and keep the sound on trek brilliantly. Top notch deep progressive vibes, not to be missed.
Home Alone gets right into the progressive house vibe from the get go as nice and chunky kicks sit beside sharp hats and cool percussions. The bass throbs out a powerful groove that hooks you in for the duration as it hypnotises your mind. In the background a surreal hook plays out and teases up to the break where a gritty analog bass synth takes over before slamming us right back into the main track with a punch. The deep side of prog house just got deeper, a must have for those darkened rooms.

Jonny Calypso – Definition, out this week on Bonzai Progressive, is featured by Beatport on the Staff Picks section at the Progressive House genre page!
German DJ and producer Jonny Calypso makes his solo debut on Bonzai Progressive with the amazing two tracker ‘Definition’. Jonny first headed our way on his collaboration with Dafar late in 2013 with ‘Spirit’.
First up we have the title track ‘Definition’ which intros with a lovely phat kick and crisp hat combo. A deep and burly bass comes on the scene and will be a contender to punish bass bins all over as it pulsates through the sound. This tough groove powers on mercilessly before a short respite on the break where the percussion takes over and a fading vocal sample is introduced then its right back into this solid deep progressive workout.
‘San Zhi’ is up next and we are eased into the track with a smooth kick led intro and a soothing pad in the rear. Sharp edged hats are a perfect contrast and provide a cool dynamic. A sub level bass is matched brilliantly with pads and give off a solid feel to the sound. As the track progresses a gritty and very powerful synth line is introduced which gives the track a cool edgy vibe. Truly deep and dark progressive house which be a gift in any box.
