EXTREME TRAX – SOUND AND FUTURE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Extreme Trax is back after a long hiatus with the superb Sound And Future which comes in original and dub flavours as well as a remix from the on form Audio Noir. Extreme Trax is responsible for a multitude of Progressive Trance and Trance hits in the late 90’s and early 00’s on XTC and Bonzai Trance Progressive with tracks such as Don’t Hold Back, Monday’s Blue and Final Fantasy. Now headed up by the legendary Yves Deruyter and given a 2015 makeover we are sure that this will strike chord with old and new fans alike.

First up we have the Original Mix of Sound And Future which gives off a real live sounding particularly through the drums with their session like qualities. The drum arrangement is big feature here and really gets the feet moving with their tight construction and solid rhythm. A raw sounding organic bass chugs through the sound beautifully and dominates for the duration. On top of the bass we have some very cool synth leads that ooze early 90’s flavour and sit so perfectly in the sound alongside sweeping pads and climactic risers. Stunning work from Mr Deruyter that will surely have the discerning clubbers wanting more.

The Dub mix is a stripped version of its big brother, we still get that live feel from the drums and that bass just dominates with its chugging driving force. In fact the bass has an even bigger place on this mix as the synths take a slight step back. But do not despair as those expertly crafted leads are still in effect and still carry their big lead qualities. Look out for the nod to the 80’s in the form of some very cool FX that lay hidden within the sound. Top notch stuff and a must have track for sure.

Audio Noir is up on remix duty with his EuroBeat remix and he really does do the original some justice with a sprinkling of his own trademark sound. Recently Audio Noir has confessed to changing things up a bit in his productions, he started toying with Electro and 80’S sounds and this remix is providing the perfect platform to showcase this slight change in direction. Nice chunky kicks are joined by stuttering crispy hats and snappy snares alongside delayed claps. A beautifully deep piano chord takes us up the I Feel Love styled rolling bassline that just sits perfectly within the 80’s inspired drums and percussions. Sweeping pads and rising FX complete with laser sounds litter the groove as we lose ourselves in this medley of synthtastic sounds. In true Audio Noir style we are treated to a sublime break that unleashes sweet melodic phrases before a sci-fi riser takes us back into the main groove. Superb stuff yet again from this guy you will not want to miss.

TOMIN TOMOVIC & ANIKO TOMOWITCH featuring CHERIF – SUMMER’S GONE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Debut appearance on Bonzai Progressive for Tomin, Aniko and Cherif with the wonderful deep progressive tones of Summer’s Gone. First time venture for this trio of artists with each bringing their own unique flavour to the table. Bratislava based Tomin has been around the scene for quite a while having started out in 2004 as resident DJ in Exit and Mecca before getting his teeth into music production. He has flirted with many styles of music but always brings out a deep emotional vibe.

Summer’s Gone Original Mix gets right into a smooth groove right from the off with those punchy kicks and subtle drums which are contrasted by snappy, sharp claps. In the background a nice melody floats around before the track takes a nose dive into progressive depths with a superbly deep and throbbing bass that will have sub woofers quaking. Cool synth notes litter the sound and form a textured layer throughout as sweeping pads and strings dish out a cool atmospheric vibe. On the break the track whittles down to reveal a super sweet melody as soft plucks are faced off by that bass before we are plunged back into the groove for the duration. Top notch cut here you will definitely want in your collection.

The Deeper Dub Mix of Summer’s Gone takes on a deeper role as the more progressive elements are enhanced. That deep throbbing bass remains and is a big focus in the sound alongside very subtle synth plucks and chords. As the track evolves we are drawn into the depths as the hypnotic groove takes hold of your senses. The break throws up a hint of melody but is overshadowed by that powerful bass. One for the late night sessions here, a must have.

Divergence intros with a cool drum arrangement that boasts cool hat and percussion patterns alongside a muted kick. That kick gets its punch on soon after as the layers build creating a nice, flowing pro house groove. The bassline comes at us with a merciless reverberating prowess that will definitely have the floors shakin. Colourful textures evolve from the various synth sounds on offer as the track mesmerizes with each phrase. Tucked away deep inside the track are subtle house chords that adds a great character to the sound. A relentlessly powerful track that will sit well in the deeper sets for sure.

ALTEK – CONTROL EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Altek debuts on Green Martian with the tantalising Control EP. Hailing from El Paso, Altek has been influenced by lots of different genres which have shaped his sound today. In mid-2000’s he became more involved with electronic music, particularly deep house, progressive house, minimal, techno, and trance. He started DJing in 2006 and was mainly focused on trance but changed direction as he looked more into progressive sounds. Now residing in Austin, TX and thanks to the help from RealMusic Events, Electric Avenue ATX †and Hypersonic Radio, today Altek can showcase his record box at local clubs (Kingdom and Lania) which contain sounds from Cid Inc, Stas Drive, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Guy J, Guy Barone, †Mike Griego, Marcelo Vasami, Andrea Cassino, Anthony Mea, Addex and many more underground house hold names. He started producing back in 2007 when he took piano and music theory lessons which in essence have helped with his understanding of music.† After many years of learning and practicing, he got recognition for his remix on One of Use, One of Them by Lukajieff. Delighted to have him on board and we look forward to more.

First up we have the slinky progressive house grooves of Control. A tight punchy kick intros with cool atmospheric sounds coming through in the background. The track breaks early to reveal a fantastic dancing bassline that will definitely get the floors moving. The bassline melds into the groove as cool vocals blend in alongside subtle melodies. On the main break we get drawn into a superb melodic sequence filled with sweeping pads and lush synths. A real smooth slice of prog here that will not disappoint.

Coven intros with a cool melodic arp as deeper tones go off in the background. A nice and phat kick soon takes over and we begin our trek into a true progressive house groove. Smooth swelling pads rise up alongside a superb bass that meanders along in its slinky groove. Fresh sounding synths bring an air of brightness to the sound and on the break we get a taste of a very cool lead that ties the track together beautifully. Perfect fodder for an early morning session, not to be missed.

Rounding up this fine EP we have Bayside Drive with its classic intro filled with a surreal atmosphere that builds and builds with a blissful flavour. Cool synth arps deliver a subtle melody as the track evolves and takes us deeper into the groove. Sleek percussions dish out a solid flowing rhythmic vibe as we head into the break where we are drawn into the sound even more with a little help from a smooth melodic groove. A top class progressive house experience that will turn a few heads for sure.

ALEX WOLF & CLAAS HERRMANN – WORMHOLE EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Alex Wolf and Claas Herrmann join forces on the techno fuelled Wormhole EP. These two young German producers have been around for a while now and have worked together in the past on Captiol Input. Alex started out at a young age and found himself immersed in Minimal Techno vibes. In 2011 he began to produce his own material and gained a lot of support with his first release Drugs All Night. Soon after he embarked on a new journey when he got the DJing bug which led him to play at lots of top parties. Claas also started out in music when he was young, his first release Unknown Groove was snapped up by many labels and spread around the globe with much support. He also DJ’s regularly alongside some of the world’s top jocks.

Wormhole is a straight up techno stomper with big chunky beats and a hypnotic groove that locks you right in for the duration. A deep probing bass rocks the speakers with its raw power and sits perfectly at the lower end. Cool FX litter the background and pair up brilliantly with a tight drum arrangement. Definitely a big hitter that will dominate the floors.

Vortex goes in for the kill with a tight construction filled to the brim with punchy kicks and shuffling hats that dish out a solid rhythmic flow. The bassline dominates in a simplistic style that hooks you into its grip for a deep and groovy ride. Grungy synths fill out the break as a riser takes us back into full on mode, top notch stuff you will not want to miss.

FATAL ERROR – ANGEL’S ARMS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

A Belgian legend joins us at Bonzai Progressive with a sublime track, Angel’s Arms. Fatal Error aka Patrick De Meyer is hailed as one of the New Beat and early Belgian rave greats. Having started his career in 1986 with the group Turbo 99, he soon became recognised as a top producer, remixer, arranger and composer. As the New Beat era raged on many artists were nurturing the new club sound that would be acid house and early rave. Patrick soon found himself at the forefront of this new movement as Technotronic’s Pump Up The Jam stormed the charts all over Europe. Prior to this, Patrick’s T99 project was lurking in the background having secured a couple of New Beat hits. T99 would be transformed into the much loved acid, hardcore, techno sound with the hard hitting Anasthasia which would become a benchmark for the rave sound in the early 90’s. As the years rolled on Patrick has notched up a dizzying amount of works covering many styles which will definitely remain firmly rooted in Belgium’s rich music history. As a nod to this Fatal Error and T99 have been included in the hugely popular The Sound Of Belgium (TSOB) compilation which covers the whole spectrum of the Belgian dance music scene. Angel’s Arms comes with three top quality remixes that you simply cannot miss out on.

First up on remix duty is Airwave with his Breaks Remix and boy does he deliver. Airwave continues to be a firm favourite among many due to his strong commitment to his profession. Never scrimping on quality and always leaving you with wanting more. His latest outing, Gaijin, on Joof is currently doing the rounds at the top end of many charts which is no surprise. Lots of gigs coming up as well as new material in the works, expect load more in the future. Big, pounding kicks are joined by snappy snares and bright hats that really get the rhythm flowing. A deep droning bass keeps the low end grooving as those big beats take full control. The deep and raspy vocal from Patrick sits perfectly within the sound and is contrasted by some spritely high pitched strings. On the breakdown distorted guitars fade out as Airwave delivers his signature soundscape that always captivates the mind before slamming right back into the main groove for the duration. Another top notch cut from the master which is most definitely not to be missed.

Belgian DJ, producer and house music stalwart Tom De Neef is up next with his remix that delivers a burst of quality house grooves. Tom has been around the scene for quite a while now and from his earliest tracks to his latest tracks he has always delivered the goods. He was a member of various groups such as Blue Minds and Calvin Stones as well as several aliases of his own and he has a vast back catalogue spanning many top labels. 1997 and 1998 saw him get great support on labels like Additive, Positiva and FFRR with subsequent releases on Fluential and Defected. His remix CV covers the likes of Kylie Minogue, Roger Sanchez, Jon Cutler and Kings Of Tomorrow. On the remix he lets loose with a superb house fuelled groove with a fantastic piano hook that will definitely get the floors pumping. Tight drums and a deep pulsing bass keeps the groove flowing with ease as Patrick’s deep monotone voice is joined by a crisp female vocal. A nice full on house joint that has a classic feel, not to be missed.

Australian producer Audio Noir returns with his remix entitled An Audio Noir Trip, and what a trip we are in for. As promised, Audio Noir continues to make 2015 one of his best years to date. Already he has dished out the superb Life as well as remixes on Rise and Falls Immersion and the late great Quadran’s Animals Rebellion. Much more to come from this guy so stay tuned. On the remix he takes us deep into the progressive world with chunky kicks, bright hats and tight drum section. A hypnotic bassline runs right through the sound and locks you into the groove beautifully. The vocals have been given a sinister makeover as they sit deeper in the sound. The background is littered with sweeping FX and cool noises that add great textures all over. Another top notch cut from down under that will not disappoint.
