ALEX LEDOV – WONDERLAND (PROGREZ)

Russian producer and sound designer Alex Ledov debuts on Progrez with Wonderland which takes us on a fantastic journey through various stages of house music all wrapped up in three top notch tracks.

Wonderland opens with some cool drums and percussions that form up a nice flowing rhythm. A strong kickdrum comes through and is joined by an array of fantastic synths alongside a gritty bassline that drives the groove brilliantly. This one grabs a hold of you and keeps you locked on for the duration with its tech fuelled beats and top notch synths and melodies. A floor stomper for sure.

Svati intros with a cool kick drum and a subtle percussion bringing up the rear. The kickdrum gets a huge punch added and bursts into the track closely followed by a superb deep, rolling bassline. We are treated to a fine display of synths that weave through the track effortlessly with their pitching notes and striking chords. The track breaks early to reveal a smooth melodic sequence before slamming back into full on mode. A wonderfully crafted slice of progressive house for the floors here, not to be missed.

Sunset starts out with a muted kick and a stuttering percussion alongside cool one shot sounds that add texture to the track. A big focus lies on the percussions here with subtle melodies floating in the background. The breakdown enters us into a surreal world filled with deep sounds and a melancholic flavour which is only broken by a pounding kickdrum and those superb percussions alongside a meandering bassline that sits perfectly on the low end. Excellent stuff that will be a welcome addition in any set.

AUDIO NOIR featuring LOKKA VOX – YOUR LOVE – REMIXES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The second track from Audio Noir’s 2015 album – Artificial Star – to get the remix treatment is Your Love which features the superb vocals of Lokka Vox. On remix duties this time around and giving us a nice range of styles we have Alex Vidal, Yoky, Dharmalogy and Experimental Feelings. Some great choices for any progressive set, you need this one in your collection.

Alex Vidal steps up to the remix desk first and delivers a solid progressive cut that will get the floors shifting to the groove in no time. We last saw Alex back in June 2015 with Mesmerized, a track which proved popular among many, and no doubt this time out we will see great support for this one. The remix opens with a dark progressive vibe as chunky kicks are set against subtle percussions and deep basses that take us deeper into the groove as the layers build. A real progressive mover here that transforms on the break as those beautiful melodies are introduced. The best of both worlds here, a definite must have track.

Next up we have Bonzai Progressive debutant Yoky on the remix. This Italian DJ and producer started out at a young age and performed all around Italy and on some of the country’s top radio stations. His passion for music led him to set up his own studio and in 2006 he released his first track under the pseudonym R-Type with a raft of top quality cuts coming thick and fast through the years under both Yoky and R-Type guises. Great to have this guy on board and we hope to see more in the year ahead. On the remix we get a taste of this guys talents within electronica as we are introduced to a fine selection of sounds that ooze that electronic vibe with a solid progressive groove in tow. The thing that stands out here is that bassline as it slices through the track to become the dominant force throughout. Cool vocals with equally cool FX added from Lokka litter the sound and add that extra dimension to the vibe. Top notch stuff and a worthy debut cut that will find its way into many sets no doubt.

Dharam Vir aka Dharmalogy returns to Bonzai Progressive with his remix and once again shows us a wonderfully deep melodic side to prog house that we know can be the icing on the cake of any progressive set. Last time out we got Back To 315 from this guy as well as a showing on a few compilations. Hopefully we will see more from this guy in 2016, well worth keeping an eye and ear on. The remix throws up a solid Dharmology performance that delivers a strong progressive groove that will definitely make it into many playlists. A cool contrasting track, this one has deep tendencies while brighter melodies ensure the track stays firmly in the peak time slot. Great use of the vocals on the break create a surreal sequence that climaxes with deep droning basses before we get locked back into full on mode for the duration. Fantastic stuff yet again from Dharma, not to be missed.

Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez aka Experimental Feelings returns to BP with a sublime remix. We last saw this guy back in September 2015 with his Indian Trip EP which gained great support across the board. Aside from this remix he has another release scheduled for early 2016 on Green Martian which will no doubt grab the attention of many jocks, keep a lookout for that one. As you’d expect from Experimental Feelings, we are treated to a sublime trek into the world of melodic progressive house. A tight drum arrangement complete with crispy hats and a nice punchy kick provide a solid platform for this progressive groover to shine. Up top we have a cacophony of melodies that take on various forms keeping the track fresh. The bass is a subtle affair that packs a huge punch but allows the brighter sounds to take the glory. The vocals come through beautifully and melt into the sound adding to the melodic structure of the track. Superb stuff yet again from this guy, a definite must have track for 2016.

CROCY featuring ASHLEY BERNDT – MIND – REMIXES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Crocy’s Mind is given the remix treatment on our next release and we have enlisted the talents of two top notch producers to lend their talents on the mixing desk. Mind was first released back in Summer 2015 to a great reception, the vocals from Ashley Berndt had a huge impact and we’ve no doubt that these new cuts will follow suit.

First up we have Pavlin Petrov on remix duty and he certainly knows how to turn up the groovy meter. Pavlin first appeared on BP back in September 2015 with the superb Feeling Alive which featured the vocal talents of Selina Stone, and what a debut that was. Hailing from Bulgaria Pavlin grew up with the music by Jean Michelle Jarre, Vangleis and Enigma. He started producing in 2005 with a keen interest in Ambient before he got more into progressive house. Since then he mixes his tracks with an ambient atmosphere which is essential for progressive house. He likes to experiment with every new track and express that deep and dark feeling dedicated to his unique style. Over the last 5 or 6 years he has released a plethora of music on various labels including Mystic Carousel Records, KP Recordings, Beat Block Records, Suffused Music among others. On top of this he has an impressive list of remixes for others making him a very much in demand artist. On the remix Pavlin finds that precarious line between tech house and progressive house in a way that allows both iterations to meet in the middle and deliver the best of both worlds. A solid workout ensues complete with nice punchy kicks, a raw, organic bassline and swirling pads. On the break we get a taste of Ashley’s stunning vocal and a reminder just how good this seemingly simplistic vocal really is. A perfect track for that crossover period in any set.

Since his first Bonzai Progressive outing back in June 2015, we have seen some fine work from this guy, both in original and remix formats. Starting out in Techno he made his way over to the Progressive side with a truly unique style that is definitely getting a lot of attention. Always worth checking out this guy’s endeavours, we hope to be seeing more from him in the future. Alexey’s remix goes straight into a deep house groove with a series of chord stabs that are mashed up beautifully resulting in a cool upbeat kinda vibe and are soon joined by the superb dancefloor friendly kicks and percussion that will keep the booty’s shakin all night. The star of the show however is that mesmerizing piano riff that weaves throughout the track. Working beautifully with the vocals on offer this piano riff is a nod to proper classic deep house that will leave punters feeling very good indeed. A definite must have in general but if you know your stuff then this one is for you.

Crocy’s House Mix intros with a real nice chunky kick and a crispy hi-hat that is soon joined by cool percussions. A quirky pluck takes over as a deep bassline dominates the low end resulting in a perfectly matched arrangement that allows the groove to flow effortlessly. The vocals start to make an appearance in a subtle way before Ashley’s voice bursts out into full on effect on the break accompanied by that super sweet piano riff from the original cut. A much tougher slice of progressive than the original which gives the track a whole new dimension, fantastic stuff.

Rounding off this top notch remix pack we have Crocy’s House Instrumental which strips out the vocals for those that like to keep it purely musical.
