Audio Noir – From London To Moscow – Remixes, out this week on Bonzai Progressive, is featured by Beatport in the Progressive House genre page!
Almost 8 months on from the release of his album Artificial Star, Australia’s Audio Noir sets out his stall once more and invites four top quality remixers to do their thing with his track From London To Moscow. The original version delivered a solid progressive house groove and we’ve no doubt that these four remixes will do that justice. Vince Aoun is up first on remix duties with his unique twist on the original. Lebanese DJ and producer Vince was last seen round these parts back in November 2015 with his Bonzai Progressive debut Lilium. Since then he has seen his work released on Vandit Records and Melodika Music as well as appearances on our WMC 2016 compilation and Afterhour Trax 19 on Green Martian. The remix opens with a muted kick drum that is cloaked by some crispy bright hats. The beat dissipates to reveal a warm lush bass tone as a cool arp rises up. Sultry vocals ring out and suddenly we’re lashed with a monstrous breaks pattern complete with a powerful kick and snappy snares. The drums are super tight here and will certainly cause a commotion on the floors. As we get lost in the breaks and 80’2 styled rolls a delicious acid riff courses through the sound alongside gritty basses. Top notch stuff from Vince that you do not want to miss.
Quantus aka Volkan Erman returns to the remix desk with another of his top notch efforts. Last time out we got a dosing of his superb talents on remix duty for Nico Parisi’s Raklet before teaming up with Findike on Deep Connection. On the remix we get a taste of the sheer quality coming out of this guys studio. A classic punchy kick and hi hat combi graces the intro alongside hypnotic percussions that set up a flowing rhythm. Cool vocals are scattered throughout and deliver a mysterious edge to the sound. Deep droning basses carry the groove nicely and are accompanied by dirty synths and basses. The break reveals a more melodic side to the sound as a soothing vocal rings out complete with superb FX bringing some very cool textures into the groove. A definite must have track that will delight any set.
Blufeld is up next on the remix with his Long Distance Rework and once again we see why this guy remains a firm favourite. Since September 2015 when we saw his last cut, this guy remained very busy indeed in the studio. After a few remixes he teamed up with Platunoff to deliver Tiefe Gedanken which quickly gathered pace and saw great support from across the board. Always an exciting time when this guy drops by and no doubt there will be much more to come. The remix intros with some very cool FX that fade away to reveal a powerful kickdrum and rattling bass combi as bright open hats feed through. The stuttering synths create a superbly colourful melody that grabs a hold of you and carries you along for the ride. As the layers build we find more and more melodics creep in to the sound resulting in a very impressive progressive groove. On the break we are transported back in time with a wonderful gated synth that dishes out a mesmerizing pattern before we are slammed right back into full on mode. A simply stunning slice of prog that will be at the top of many sets no doubt.
Ruslan Vashkevich rounds up this impressive remix pack with a superb chill remix. Taking a bit of a side step from his usual progressive vibes, Ruslan enters the world of chill and does so with a flurry of panache and surrealism. His last outing – Perfect Choice saw support from a lot of top jocks and we’ve no doubt that this side step into chilldom will follow suit. The remix opens with a fading in, haunting sound that opens up into an expertly layered pad. Deeper elements make their way into the soundscape as various FX add colour to the sound. A surreal arp cascades up and down creating a sublime space type vibe. Intermittent bass drops raise the intensity as those arps dominate the sound before fading away to reveal a cacophony of bells that play us out. A wonderfully creative piece that will give your imagination something to think about.

Prolific artists Blufeld and Platunoff join forces as they both return to Bonzai Progressive after a short hiatus with the superb Tiefe Gedanken which also comes backed up with two quality remixes from Nico Parisi and Alex Vidal. We last saw Blufeld back towards the end of 2015 with Out Of This Life which came shortly after his superb studio album A World Less Ordinary. Some big things in the pipeline with this guy so make sure you keep up to date with all his goings on via social media and of course the Bonzai Progressive website. Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff also returns with a quality remix and his last outing was on remix duties for Blufeld’s Out Of This Life. Great to see both of these diverse artists back at the helm and we hope they collaborate more in the future.
The Original Mix opens with a smooth almost dreamy sequence complete with swirling pads and playful melodics alongside a building percussion arrangement. A subtle bass appears and steers the track toward the deeper side before superb punchy kick drums come in. The track settles into a solid prog groove that becomes filled with subtle melodies and cool FX. The bass is a truly hypnotic experience that is enhanced by those tight drums, this one is a definite must have for those late night sessions.
Nico Parisi returns with a top quality remix which comes fresh off the back of his recent remix of Thorin’s Dreaming of A Better World which appeared on the massive Bonzai & Friends – 500 (Remixes). No doubt we’ll be seeing more in the coming months from this hugely talented artist, so stay tuned. On the remix Nico opens with a punchy kick drum with a subtle synth arp chasing in the background. Percussions start to form up and we soon find ourselves drawn to the groove. The progressive vibes on offer really shine through as a deep droning bass takes over the low end while up top a myriad of melodies take charge and steer the track in a hypnotic direction. A real nice slice of prog here that is not to be missed.
The ever impressive Alex Vidal steps up to remix duties and delivers another one of his sublime progressive cuts. His last outing for BP was also on remix duties, this time on LoQuai’s Numans Prayer on Bonzai & Friends – 500 (Remixed). Much more to come from this guy in the future, well worth keeping an eye and an ear on. Alex’s remix intros with a punchy kick drum that sits over a dreamy pad sequence complete with swirling FX and subtle melodies. A deep, probing bassline fades in and soon takes control of the groove as it drives the track forward. Cool spacey vibes ooze out of the sound as the intensity rises. On the break we get drawn deeper into the vibe with a series of melodic pads and a tight percussion keep us going before getting slammed right back into full on mode. One for the deeper darker progressive sets here that will not disappoint.

Bulgarian born and now residing in Turkey, DJ and producer Askin Dedeoglu debuts on Green Martian with the superb White which comes in two flavours namely Re-Awakening and Al-Kan’s Hard Drug Mix. Askin became interested in electronic music around 1990 and in 1994 he started to DJ securing gigs at various night clubs. In 2005 he started to look into producing while working in the IT industry. His first release came in 2014 and was representative of the sounds he was creating between 2005 and 2008. Tracks he made between 2008 and 2012 were part of his second album Route 34 and all tracks after that make up his hugely impressive back catalogue. Delighted to have him on board and hopefully we will be seeing much more from this guy in the future.
White (Re-Awakening) intros with a nice smooth percussive driven groove that builds up to deliver a rhythmic vibe before a punchy kick drum comes through to take control. Superb dark laced synth stabs get the progressive juices flowing as cascading arps do their thing. On the low end a deep probing bass lurks that carries the groove with ease. Throw in some warm chords and expertly crafted FX and you have yourself the perfect recipe to get any floor moving.
Al-Kan debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the Hard Drug Mix of White. This one delivers a fine slice of progressive vibes that start off with some tasty beats to get the groove moving. Chunky kick drums and crispy hi hats are on hand to get us on to the floors while a solid probing bassline ramps up the prog groove. Throughout the track we’re treated to an array of cascading arps. On the break lush chord stabs take over before we get slammed back to full on mode for the duration, top notch stuff.
Top Belgian DJ and producer Van Czar joins forces with top Mexican DJ and producer Acid Kit to deliver the superb Take Control which features a stunning remix from DJ ESP aka Woody McBride.

His fresh approach to producing and DJing has led him down some successful paths resulting in him working with some of the most well known and respected artists in the world.

He runs his own promotion company – We Love Techno Group – which is dedicated to promoting all aspects of music, from festivals and artists as well as running 5 music labels We Love Techno, We Love Tech House, We Love Minimal, We Love Psy Trance and Mexicanilicious.
The Original Mix intros with a seriously thumping kick drum that leave a trail of low end in its wake. Sharp claps sit over a cool rhythmic percussions section as a rumbling bassline bubbles up from below. A dark and sinister vocal comes through demanding to get on the floor as the beats pound you into submission. A top notch cut no doubt and a must have track.

Andrés Tamayo aka An-Beat debuts on Piston with the fantastic three tracker Kingz EP. Since 2009 Andres has built up a solid electronic music profile with a vast back catalogue on many labels. It was 2007 when he started to use local musical influences such as House, Tech House, Techno and Minimal which led to him starting to produce his own sounds in 2008. His music has appeared on the likes of Witty tunes, 1605, Deeperfect and Neurotraxx Recordings among others and has been supported by top artists such as Claude Vonstroke, DJ Sneak, Maximiljan, Richie Hawtin, Joris Voorn and Karotte to name just a few. He is currently owner of Moustache label along with Camilo Do Santos.
Kingz intros with crisp snappy snare on top of a muted kick drum and bright percussions before a fantastic punchy kick powers through to take control. A cool house vibe ensues with a playful groove to get the feet shuffling to the beat. Tight drums and percussions lead the way becoming a big focus in the track and take us to the break where we’re met with a display of various sounds and cool vocal snippets. A rattling snare roll takes us out of the break and slams us back into full on mode complete with that superb probing bassline. Top notch stuff and a definite must have track.
If you’re after deep edgy late night grooves then I Am is the track for you. A cool flowing rhythm is established from the outset as crispy bright percussions form up. Nice and chunky kick drums deliver a powerful punch and join forces with a wonderfully crafted bassline to take over the track. The drums tighten up and you will be forced to move to the groove. On the break a cool vocal delivers a self professing narrative that will captivate and intrigue. Super smooth basses shore up the low end bring depth and texture to the sound. Excellent stuff not to be missed.
Eats takes us on a cool tech fuelled ride filled with tight drums and quirky basses to whet the appetite. Punchy kicks join in as the layers build into a solid rhythmic flow. A wonderful moving bassline shows up in all its analog glory alongside a really cool vocal that gives a great character to the sound. This one will definitely do the damage on the floors with its tight solid grooves.
Bulgarian DJ and producer Pavlin Petrov returns to Bonzai Progressive with another sublime effort – Set Me Free. Once again he enlists the vocal talents of Selina Stoane and we can certainly see why. His last outing – Feeling Alive – also featured Selina on vocals and the chemistry created between the two did not go unnoticed. Great to see these two talented artists back once again and we hope to see much more in the future.
Set Me Free intros with a subtle percussion that lures you in before a powerful beat bursts through alongside cool synths and rich swirling pads. A deep, probing bassline rises up and settles the track into a smooth deep house groove. Mesmerizing vocals cascade over the sound and join those beautifully melodic pads to deliver a sublime dreamy vibe that captivate the mind. Top notch stuff for sure, the perfect fodder for a late night session.
Australian producer Audio Noir steps up to the plate with his Rekonstruction and shows us once more the range of skills he has to offer. Fresh off the back of his Progressive Tales 2 release, this guy remains consistent with top quality results at every turn. The remix opens with a cool arp which is soon joined by a nice, well rounded thumping kick drum. Cool percussions begin to appear delivering a shuffling rhythm that will get the bodies moving towards the floor. A gritty bassline takes over with a little help from sharp edged synths that set the track off brilliantly. The vocals fade through and bring nice contrasting textures between the smoother tones of the voice and the edgier synths. Excellent stuff once more from Audio Noir.

Wasting Time is a sublime trek deep into the bowels of house music, and all done in a laid back funky groove kinda style. The intro boasts a simple hat pattern before a superbly funky bassline warms the track and gives us a push towards the floor. A plethora of cool drums and percussions form up and deliver a smooth rhythmic flow with that bassline at the forefront. Quirky synths litter the sound and blend effortlessly into the drum dominated arrangement. Top notch stuff not to be missed.
Gimme Something delivers a solid tech house workout with a nice chunky kick drum leading the way as cool crispy hats and wonderfully snappy snares bring in the rhythm in style.
