AUDIO NOIR – ALMOST FAMOUS REWORKED – VOLUME 2 FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Since Audio Noir released his debut album, Almost Famous, things have been gaining pace, which led us to gathering top remix artists to work their skills on the superb tracks within the album. Back in the summer of this year Reworked Volume 1 hit the floors running and on the back of that we present to you another round of top quality remixes with Reworked Volume 2 comprising five, on fire producers doing their thing. In the meantime, Audio Noir continues his reign over deep progressive sounds with an upcoming remix on a new Phi & Airwave collaboration as well as a remix on Thorin’s Secrets and appearances on various compilations. Always worth keeping an eye on this outstandingly talented artist.

AUDIO NOIR – ALMOST FAMOUS REWORKED – VOLUME 2 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Since Audio Noir released his debut album, Almost Famous, things have been gaining pace, which led us to gathering top remix artists to work their skills on the superb tracks within the album. Back in the summer of this year Reworked Volume 1 hit the floors running and on the back of that we present to you another round of top quality remixes with Reworked Volume 2 comprising five, on fire producers doing their thing. In the meantime, Audio Noir continues his reign over deep progressive sounds with an upcoming remix on a new Phi & Airwave collaboration as well as a remix on Thorin’s Secrets and appearances on various compilations. Always worth keeping an eye on this outstandingly talented artist.

Swedish four piece Inkfish are first up on remix duty with their Promise Nothing Remix of One More Night. The intro comes in with a gnarly, raw organic flavour as heavy keys and grainy flutes set the tone. Punchy kicks soon follow alongside a fantastic distorted vocal sample that really captures the organic nature of the sound beautifully. A smooth rhythmic flow is established with the percussive elements and is further enhanced by a subtle bass that sits back allowing that vocal sample to keep control of the track. Superb stuff that will be a welcome addition to those darker, deeper sets.

Pole Folder & Cedric Piret are up next with their remix of Under The Sun. It’s been a while since we last saw these guys, their last outing was on remix duty for Quincy’ In Balance back at the start of this year. Since then the guys have been working on other projects as well a DJing at various events. Here the remix gets going with some smooth bass tones alongside a steady building rhythmic percussion sequence. Nice chunky kicks get the progressive vibes flowing as melodic phrases ebb and flow through the track. A deep-rooted bassline adds to the darker element of the sound as we are locked into this wonderful groove. The break takes a surreal sidestep with those melodies converging into a beautiful sequence that leads back into the main track. A truly epic ride with deep and thoughtful imagination, not to be missed.

East Cafe aka Gabor Kaszas debuts on Bonzai Progressive with his superb remix of Midnight Til Morning. Gabor pride himself on producing intelligent sounding progressive house and has been doing so for several years. His works can be found on labels like Silk, Mistique Music, Digital Sensation and Morphosis with support coming from all quarters. Here he utilises his skills to churn out a masterful slice of prog goodness. The intro eases us into the groove with a nice and smooth percussive laden sequence which leads up to a grainy bass synth that sets the scene perfectly. The vocal sits off the main groove beautifully and captivates with its intriguing narrative. The layers continue to build and bring fleeting melodies as well as a pulsing bass that becomes a big feature. Deep and smooth progressive grooves that will draw the attention of many for sure.

Bonzai regular Yuriy From Russia delivers another of his stunning cuts we have become accustomed to with his remix of La Polaris. After a summer of multiple remixes, we look forward to more from this guy. The intro boasts a swelling, rich pad sequence with a harsh clap on the upbeat, a nice well-rounded kick is joined by a wonderful pulsating bass that fills the sound beautifully. Intricate melodies burst out of the deeper groove as arps speckle the sound. A stunning trek into deep progressive vibes that does not disappoint.

Antonio Citarella wraps up this pack with his superb remix of Morphine. We last saw Antonio on our Progrez imprint with Traveller, which was very well received among many. Here he delivers a truly sublime prog experience as the intro lets loose with a metallic arp sequence on top of some lush synth licks and a quite subtle kick. Percussions form up and bring a solid rhythm that locks you into the groove beautifully as those arps relentlessly drive on. Overall, the sound seems quite minimal but a lot of layers really beefs things up giving off a fuller sound. Top notch stuff yet again from Antonio and a definite must in any set.

A.M.X – SECRET LOVER (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Cypriot DJ and producer Andreas Metaxas aka A.M.X debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime Secret Lover. Andreas started out DJing from a young age as he had the urge to share his own electronic music experience with everyone. He began to play regularly at top clubs in 2008 which led to sharing line-ups with the likes of Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond, Cosmic Gate, Wippenberg and more. Currently based in the UK Andreas has seen releases on various labels including Karmak Records, Disco Rebels Records, Paprika Musika and Polytechnic Records among others. Lots of new stuff in the pipeline for this guy and we are delighted to have him here at Bonzai Progressive. Secret Lover comes with two fantastic remixes from Tali Freaks and Manuel Palmitesta.

The Original Mix intros with a silky smooth deep vibe as a warm sweeping pad flows beautifully alongside a nice punchy kick and subtle percussion arrangement. As the layers build a strong house groove is born allowing you to get lost in its hypnotic state. On the break a brilliant, raspy evocative vocal captures your imagination and keeps you locked on. Top notch stuff that will appeal to many.

Tali Freaks is up first on the remix with a truly sublime cut. We last saw Tali Freaks back in May this year with his Set The Sun on Eyepatch Recordings. The remix here intros with a cool deep kick as bright percussions begin to stitch together forming a flowing rhythmic vibe. The vocals work well and leads us to a smooth stepping bassline that will definitely get those asses shakin. A pure house vibe with a funky undertone that will be a welcome addition in any set.

Manuel Palmitesta returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duty after his superb remix on Ecco’s switch during the summer. Here he toughens up the groove with a nice chunky kick and sharp percussions that bond well to deliver a tight drum arrangement. A deep pulsating bass sits on the offset beat giving that driving vibe to the sound. Cool house vibes with a sprinkling of techno giving off a very groovy feeling, definitely one to watch.

PHI PHI & AIRWAVE – FINESSE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Since Phi Phi & Airwave got together in the studio they have pumped out some top quality cuts and today is no exception. Finesse comes with three superb remixes and promises to be a firm favourite among many for sure.

First up the Original Mix gets right down to business with a fantastic kick that hits the spot perfectly with its snappy punch. A smooth rolling bass lurks in the background waiting to pounce as the rhythms form up with the help of crispy hats and percussions. The bass comes to the fore as the intensity around the vibe builds taking us to a short break before we settle back into this relentless driving progressive groove, a definite must have.

Athens based DJ and producer John Tsamis returns to remix duty after his debut remix back in July this year on Steve Sai’s Stardust. On the remix John pulls out all the stops and takes the track deep into the progressive abyss. A cool rhythmic percussion pattern and beautifully crafted kicks set the track on course as a lush, deep bass holds up the low end. The break throws up a sublime drum and FX sequence with selection of various instruments bringing contrasts to the almost tribal nature of the sound. Superb stuff yet again from John and one for those darker rooms out there.

Hady Tarek joins the remix roster and comes out all guns blazing with a fantastic punchy kick and sharp hat combo that really gets the track moving. As if that wasn’t enough he ramps things up a gear with a wonderfully balanced bouncing bassline that will get any ass movin’. A short break throws up cool synth riffs with a touch of melodies that will keep your ears trained. Nicely paced grooves and superb arrangements will make this a definite go to tune for many jocks.

Australia’s finest Audio Noir is up next with another of his surreal remixes that always gets those progressive juices flowing. Having just released his first studio album, Almost Famous, which has already been given the remix treatment, we eagerly await some new material as it is always an exciting time. For now we will indulge in Another Audio Noir Trip which intros with a very cool vox pad that grips you immediately. A smooth understated kick gets the track moving as subtle hats and percussions begin to form cool rhythms. The deep rooted basses do a great job shoring up the low end and take on a hypnotic trait that locks you in for the ride. A truly spectacular arrangement that will see a lot of playtime for sure.

KRUNO KERETA – DISQUIET EP (MONOG RECORDS)

Croatian producer Kruno Kereta debuts on Monog with the sublime Disquiet EP and comes complete with a superb remix from Alan Castro.

The Original Mix oozes deep minimal techno grooves as tough break beats dish out head nodding rhythms alongside some very cool percussions that become the mainstay of the track. A simple yet highly effective bass sits just behind the kicks beautifully as shuffling hats drive the rhythms. A series of synth sequences fade up from nowhere and keep with the minimal groove resulting in a proper deep techno experience.

Argentinean DJ and producer Alan Castro returns to Monog on remix duty, we last saw Alan with his Metodology EP back in 2013 which also got appearances on compilations through Eyepacth Recordings and Bonzai Progressive. Here he beefs up the original with big punchy kicks in a breaks pattern and a super tight drum and percussion arrangement which keeps with the minimal feel of the sound. Eerie sounding synth licks and pads combine brilliantly with a series of metallic FX which marries perfectly with the vibe. The beats transform into a full on 4×4 rhythm at the midway point and this beast of a track really takes off. A truly epic experience you will not want to miss.

Stratus rounds up this EP and gets right into the heart of deep minimal techno sounds with thumping break beats and a pure, raw bass. Rhythmic patterns flow effortlessly with the addition of spacey hats and percussions. A fantastic arp sequence brings with it a hypnotic flow that filters wonderfully to become the dominant force of the groove. Top notch stuff that will surely get attention within the techno fraternity.
