MINDGAMERS – THE PREACHERS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The dynamic duo from Tallinn is back with another stomping progressive house cut in the shape of The Preachers. Zas and Sanze have been at the forefront of Bonzai Progressive label for many years now and they never disappoint. 2014 saw multiple releases and remixes with great feedback coming from many quarters. The summer saw the release of You Know Why which was followed up by remixes for the likes of Dark Soul Project and Ecco, the guys also featured on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends Progressive Underground Collection which gained the number 1 spot over at Beatport in January 2015. The Preachers is backed up with two top notch remixes.

The Original Mix gets us going with a superb upbeat intro filled with chunky kicks, tight drums and a rising synth which is soon joined by crispy hats that get the rhythm flowing. The synths intensify with the addition of a wonderfully constructed voice effect before descending into a short break where the lush bassline takes over and dominates the sound. The main break throws up a very cool piano sequence alongside fantastic vocals that keep the house vibe alive before we get thrust back into the main track for the duration. A real prog house stomper here that you will definitely not want to miss.

The hugely talented Rishi K. is first up on remix duty. We last saw Rishi back in October 2014 with the widely regarded Black Ice and then soon after with an appearance on our Bonzai & Friends compilation. Rishi is also active on many other labels with a raft of releases covering various styles, always one to watch. On the remix Rishi gets right into house music mode with an absolute banging sound. The intro boasts the classic kick and hat combi with a sharp clap on the 2 and 4 as smooth house keys lurk around the background. The bassline plunders into the groove with its funky tones marrying perfectly with the outstanding vocal, all of which makes for a proper booty shakin experience. On the break we get a fantastic stabbing piano chord sequence that solidifies the groove beautifully. An absolute must have track that will fill floors easily.

Steve Sai is up next on the remix and he delivers the goods in his own unique style yet again. Steve’s track, Stardust saw a release during the Summer of 2014 and grabbed a lot of attention as expected. Recently he has made appearances on a few of our compilations including Bonzai & Friends, Afterhour Trax 14 and Club Traxx Deep & Dark 2. Much more to come from this guy so well worth looking out for. The remix intros with a cool pulsing bass and tight drum sequence with rising synths and short vocal hits. A nice and phat kick soon joins the party as the bassline comes to the fore with its bubbling grooves. A lot of attention is paid to the superbly crafted drum patterns that give the track a lot of rhythm which will get the floors moving no doubt. The break focuses in on the bass with wispy sounds accompanying the vocals and beautiful piano before we get thrust back into the main track for the duration. Top notch stuff from Steve and will no doubt turn a few heads.

DARK SOUL PROJECT & MATHOV FEATURING FE MALEFIZ – AIN’T NO MELODIES LEFT FOR ME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dark Soul Project & Mathov enlist the stunning vocals of Fe Malefiz on the superb Ain’t No Melodies Left For Me which comes backed up with three fantastic remixes. Dark Soul Project marks his full debuts on Bonzai after his track Feels Like Heaven featured on our Club Traxx Progressive House compilation. He brings a wealth of talents to the table as his impressive back catalogue will attest. Mathov returns after his highly regarded Dark Activity was released in early November with support pouring in from all quarters. Since leaving uplifting trance behind he is definitely causing a stir in the progressive world with his smooth grooves. German singer Fe Malefiz provides the vocals for this release and it’s clear why she has been chosen as you will find out. Fe has worked with many artists over the years including Martin Merkel among others.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a cool drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks, sharp hats and rhythmic percussions. The track breaks to reveal a lush bass that sits perfectly within the groove and becomes the mainstay of the track. We get our first glimpse of the vocal here with its haunting tones and melodic phrases. The groove settles in with a strong progressive edge that will keep the heads nodding. The main break unleashes the vocal as it sweeps throughout before the Bjork-esque song comes through just at the right time to round up this absolute stunner of a track. A definite must have.

On remix duty we have Tallinn’s own Zas & Sanze aka Mindgamers. We haven’t seen the guys for a while as they have been busy with DJing and other projects, but we know they will be unleashing their latest works soon which we are all excited about. Here the guys do their thing and they do it well as always. Tight progressive vibes right from the off, muted kicks are joined by a fading in bass alongside cool FX. The kicks transform into chunky hits as the bass warms to become a lush grooving sequence. Fe’s vocal comes through beautifully here and blends so perfectly with the sounds around it. The groove is captivating as it lulls you into its grip with the help of sharp melodic sequences that add character and contrast to the sound. Another fine offering from the guys and sure to be a main feature in many sets.

Kintar returns for remix duty here at Bonzai Progressive with his unique blend of prog house that we know and love. DJing is a big part of his career, playing all over the world, you’d think he wouldn’t have the time for producing but he finds the time and always gets it done with great results. Here he intros the track with a fantastic low end kick, crispy hats and snappy claps. A deep resonating bassline shores up the rear as the layers build bringing surreal sweeping pads that lead up to some cool, subtle melodic flavours. The vocal is used sparingly with great effect as the anticipation builds with the help of an intense piano chord. Wonderful stuff out of Argentina and a track you have got to have.

Audio Noir never stops, he relentlessly churns out top quality productions and remixes to the delight of many. His most recent stint was Reworked Volume 2 from his album Almost Famous which have been getting fantastic support from many quarters. Much more to come out of Australia which we always look forward to. Here he gives us his Rekonstruction mix which takes the tempo back a bit, getting into a more laidback vibe. The intro is a wonderful cacophony of glitched FX and atmospheric sequences which combine beautifully before a superb warm bass breaks things up and provides that almost downtempo quality. The kicks sit mid range and allow you to become immersed in their beat while cool crispy hats bring a rhythmic flow to the sound. The vocal keeps the track firmly on course with its wonderfully haunting and rich tones. Subtle melodies play out as you become hypnotized by this sublime progressive groove. Yet again we get hooked by an Audio Noir cut, not to be missed.

MINDGAMERS – YOU KNOW WHY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Tallinn’s finest are back with their long awaited follow up to The Crown with You Know Why on Bonzai Progressive. November 2013 was their last full release but they have been very busy indeed with remix duties for Phi Phi & Airwave, Ecco, Cordoba and Matan Caspi. The original gets a rework from four of Bonzai’s top remixers to satisfy our progressive addictions.

The Original Mix intros with a cool round of percussions before a nice punchy kick joins the fun as vocal samples come through. A deep and laidback bass provides the perfect platform for the progressive house vibes to flourish here and are matched beautifully with a flowing rhythmic percussion section. Cool housey stabs come through as a more progressive inspired synth makes the rounds. The break reveals a bright melodic string that adds lush tones to the vibe. Top notch effort yet again from Zas and Sanze.

Top Bonzai artist Nico Parisi is up first to remix and what a fine job he does yet again. Nico as usual remains a very busy guy in the studio and on the road gigging. His latest remix for Matan Caspi has been performing very well indeed and his newest track Napoli By Night will no doubt follow suit. Here Nico turns up the progressive dial a few notches with a nice deep grooving track. The original elements are well represented with the bass walking along beautifully as big chunky kicks dominate the sound. The vocal samples come through perfectly and add to the darker tones. On the break we see wonderful contrasts as the strings pitch above the deeper vibe resulting in a must have cut for those late night sessions.

Crocy is next up for his remix and again we see top quality delivery for a top quality artist. Recently we were treated to his own latest cut, a reworking of Recht, as well as remixes for Nico Parisi and Steve Sai. The remix here intros with a nice and bright crispy hat and sharp clap combi with vocal samples coming in. The punchy kicks give way to a brilliantly crafted bassline that filters into a superb grooving house vibe as the synths dish out their subtle melodies. A super tight arrangement with a huge dancefloor appeal that will no doubt feature among many.

Jakhira delivers a top notch remix as you’d expect with his trademark house elements shining through beautifully. Right from the off you know you’re in for a good time as crispy percussions form up a solid rhythmic base. Well rounded, punchy kicks are joined by a groovy chord riff that will get the dancing feet moving easily. A cool plucky bassline keeps the groove flowing brilliantly as the layers continue to build with the addition of classy synth stabs. The break unleashes a fantastic deep bass pad as the synths continue their journey with the addition of some funky keys to shake things up a bit. Superb stuff from this Jakhira as always and no doubt this will feature heavily in many sets.

Rion Oidua rounds off this stunning remix pack with his own stunning cut. Since October 2013 Rion has featured on many remix rosters across various labels within the Bonzai realm, and each time he always surpasses expectations with quality work. This time around we see his progressive traits shine through as the track intros with a classic kick and hat combi that will always get feet moving. A deep and moody synth is joined by cool vocal samples and leads us up to a fantastic stand out plucked bass that just sits perfectly in the track. Cool house vibes come off the synths and pad chords as a smooth string melody eases in. The break lets loose with big stabby synth chords that take the track on a bit of an oldskool tangent with stunning results before settling back into this solid progressive house groove. A definite must have.

ECCO – SWITCH (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Ecco returns to Bonzai Progressive after a short hiatus with the superb Switch featuring three top notch remixes from top quality artists. We last saw Ecco on remix duty for Eric Powa B’s track Sunshine and we are delighted to see him back in action yet again.

Switch intros with a smooth drum arrangements that features muted kicks and a strong metallic feel. The kicks evolve into nice and punchy hits aits as percussions begin to form up flowing rhythms. A deep bubbling bassline shores up the rear and gets the track into full gear. The break offers up some cool synth pads creating a surreal atmospheric vibe which combines beautifully with the deep nature of the track. Nice deep, dark and long progressive for those darker rooms.

Dynamic duo Mindgamers are up first on remix duty with their stunning cut. The guys had recently remixed Matan Caspi’s Just Let Go receiving great support and have also been busy DJing. We are always excited when their work hits the office and we are in for a treat here. Straight from the off we get an upbeat kinda vibe off the chunky kicks and subtle percussions, the multi layered bass also gives the vibe a nice bounce to it. Sharp and rhythmic hats lift the sound up a notch alongside some superb synths and textured licks that give the sound a funky side. A definite must have for any party and not to be missed.

German DJ and producer Manuel Palmitesta debuts on Bonzai Progressive as offers up the next remix. Manuel has seen releases on many labels over the last few years and he always gains lots of support, and we are sure that this effort will turn a few heads. The track intros with a punchy kick and classic percussion set up with an in your face hypnotic siren styled synth note that dominates the sound. A very subtle yet effective bass sits in the rear and binds the track together beautifully. On the break a techy element filters into the sound as the percussions keep the groove flowing before we slam right back into full swing with an air raid siren for good measure. Top notch stuff.

Phat Traktor aka Spanish DJ and producer Jose Vinilo returns after his brilliant debut track Voyage gained much support. Here he takes the remix on a sublime journey into the deeper side of progressive house. The track intros with dark drums and a pulsating bassline as various percussions begin to filter through setting the dark tone of the sound. A tech styled synth swirls in the background as brighter lick comes through. A deep and hypnotic slice that will sit perfectly in those darker sets.
