AUDIO NOIR – ALMOST FAMOUS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Audio Noir has been around for a while now at Bonzai and he has consistently delivered the goods in all his productions and remixes. We are used to seeing his progressive house side or his revisits to oldskool grooves side, but this time around he throws out the script and shows us more of his superb skills in all aspects of music creation. Almost Famous takes us on a surreal ride through many aspects of musical form, from downtempo to big beats and from dark progressive to vocalised progressive house. A classic album in the making with something for everyone which will not disappoint.

The album kicks off with Kontakt with its fading intro revealing words from one of the great minds of our time. A fantastic double bass creates a smooth and groovy workout which is further enhanced with superb breaks and sharp flute riffs. The spoken word adds great character to the track resulting in the perfect introduction to this wonderful album.

Evolver intros with a punchy breaks pattern backed up with organic FX that flow beautifully with the vibe. A deep throbbing bass eases alongside some very cool dark synths. Strikingly surreal vocals cascade through the sound which keeps your mind locked in.

Next up we have The Hawthorne Effect with its intense intro and giving an injection of energy into the album. Again we see Audio Noir go down the breaks route with a tight drum arrangement which is so expertly crafted. Rhythmic percussions keep the groove flowing alongside cool melodies and that intense synth that sits in the background. Pulsating basses are the perfect companion to round off this stunning cut.

We head into Love – Vox On and the first four to the floor beat on the album. Nice and smooth intro with punchy kicks that sit over a cool percussion section as a deep and powerful bassline takes control of the grooves. Sultry vocal phrases add a cool dynamic to this dark vibe which is contrasted beautifully by lush pads on the break.

One More Night sets off on its journey with a very cool intro consisting of echoed beats, bright melodic flavours. Sharp percussions soon follow and the track breaks into a smooth organ melody with an airy vocal over the top. Hypnotic basses let the grooves flow beautifully as a gritty synth riff plays out on the sidelines.

Ramping up the tempo and getting the party in full swing we have La Polaris. Nice chunky kicks and layered percussions get the rhythm flowing as a deep pulsating bass hits the offset to the backdrop of wispy vocal samples. A darker tribal element filters through as the drum sections notches up a gear with a hypnotic synth becoming a big focus. Swirling pads reveal a stunning melody and offers a very cool contrast as whispered vocal shots come through, top notch cut yet again.

Deep into the midway point on the album is Morphine which intros with a fantastic punchy kick and percussive layers building all around. Cool rising FX brings each layer to its peak and reveals even more superb percussion patterns. The track descends into a darker vibe as a wonderful bass resonates right through the sound before coming back into the main groove. Brilliant vocal samples and a blippy arp sequence provide solid textures which would be a welcome addition in any set.

Wunderschong goes deeper with its dark pulsing bassline and chunky kicks. The percussions are top notch as is the tight drum arrangement with its solid rhythmic workout. Sweeping, raw FX rise and fall throughout and take us to the break where super sweet and lush pads weave a beautiful melodic sequence. The melodies subside and the dynamic shifts back to the dark progressive nature of the track, superb stuff.

Under The Sun boasts a fantastic intro as bassy percussions are joined by wonderful vocal FX. Rhythmic hats and claps get the groove flowing as a myriad of sounds cascade down resulting in a complex web of perfectly pitched sounds. The bassline brings order and drives the track forward with a little help from cool punchy kicks. Beautifully crafted synth pads elevate above the darker tones and are joined by a stunning melancholic vocal, brilliant stuff.

Leaving the midway section of the album we run into HairSplitter with its big beat tendencies. Cool raw sounding beats sit well with gritty, organically flavoured synths and basses. Wistful vocals sweep through as gentle arps form up in the sound. The break reveals a stunning display of filtered synths that are the perfect addition to the sound. Big, brash and ballsy stuff.

Chemical Phunk keeps the big beat trait running as we are treated to a fascinating display of drum arrangement with punchy kicks and sharp, snappy percussions. Industrial sized FX dominate to the backdrop of a hypnotizing deep pulsing bassline. The break comes amidst a round of gritty distorted synths as the breaks build up and climax back into this super charged cut, great stuff.

Midnight Till Morning intros with warm melodic synths and a hair raising vox sequence as smooth and groovy beats come through. The track builds nicely and the raspy vocals add beautiful textures as the dynamics of the sound shift continuously. Cool and laidback sounds, perfect for those late night to early morning sessions.

Rounding off this stunning album is Love – Vox Off which removes the sultry vocals from Vox On and leaves us with a beautifully crafted slice of smooth and deep progressive vibes. The perfect ending to a perfect journey which will no doubt be a great listening experience among many.

PHILTHY CHIT – CONFABULATE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Philthy Chit returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Confabulate which comes packed out with three top quality remixes. Phil has been very busy lately on remix duties, churning out top notch cuts at every turn, his last effort on Nico Parisi and Gai Barone’s Perla saw great support and many features at top download sites.

The Original Mix gets us moving with a cool punchy kick and steadily building percussion led intro. The bass soon commands the track as drives the progressive grooves forward alongside stunning FX and a striking vocal sample. On the break the track really comes to life with hypnotic synths and intricate melodies alongside that soulful vocal adding great character. Top notch yet again from Phil and a definite must have track for those peak time prog sets.

Fresh off the back of his Camis Minor EP, Relaunch is back to lend his talents on remix duty and yet again he does not disappoint. A full on uplifter is played out in his own unique style which is a joy to many. So many wonderful elements combine beautifully here, from big chunky kicks to beat pulsing pads and that bubbling bassline to fascinating FX. The break unleashes a wave of euphoria as melodic sequences build up to climax with an ear piercing synth that will force those hands in the air. One for the big floors here and not to be missed.

Yuriy From Russia continues his spate of remixes with this latest cut solidifying the quality he always delivers. We last saw Yuriy on K-Fel – Pantheon which was a well received track among many and no doubt we are in for more of the same here. The track oozes a tough progressive vibe as the bassline drives the groove beautifully. Tight drum arrangements keep the rhythms flowing with a little help from a brilliant vocal sample that fits so well. The synths are the big hitter here hypnotising the mind with their complex melodies keeping the groove flowing. Superb stuff yet again from Yuriy.

Audio Noir is up next with another of his outstanding remixes. Lately he has been extremely busy with a multitude or remixes, his last coming on Airwave and DJ Fire’s Without Roots. But not only that he has also been working hard on his very own studio album Almost Famous which has recently been released on Bonzai Progressive. The intro boasts a nice big chunky kick as we have come accustomed to with an Audio Noir cut, the kick is joined by a fantastic percussion section that delivers cool rhythms. A vocal sample comes through with a sweeping pad going off in the background before the track open up with a monster bass taking control. Beautiful melodies are delivered via cool arps and add rich layered textures to the sound. An all round fast paced stomper that will be a welcome addition in any set.

ALEX PHILIPP – PARALLEL CROSSPOINT (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer Alex Philipp debuts on our Green Martian imprint with the sublime three tracker Parallel Crosspoint. Alex loves blending grungy atmospheres from the nineties with psychedelic sounds from the sixties, all wrapped up in techno flavours. He has seen a very impressive list of releases on various labels since 2013 and we have no doubt we will be seeing much more from this outstanding talent.

Parallel Crosspoint is up first with its glitchy organic vibes. The intro eases in with a soft pad alongside a nice punchy kick as various percussions get the rhythm flowing. Blippy FX and raw analogue sounds provide wonderful textures as pulsing bass drives the track forward. A multitude of FX draws lots of focus here and the expertly crafted arrangement keeps the vibe groove intact. Sublime slice of deep techy progressive house that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

Steady movement sets of with a smooth uplifting pad as blippy FX fill the spectrum. A superb bright arp weaves in and out as the filters tear out harder edged segments. Subtle kicks and a flowing rhythmic structure round off the intro as the track crashes into the main groove with a fantastic acid styled bassline. The break offers up cool chords that give stark contrasts to the sound resulting in a strong hypnotic groove. Superb stuff and not to be missed.

Tired Of News sets off with a crashing FX that leads to a grungy bass that resonates through the speakers menacingly. Big phat kicks join in as the percussions begin to form up to the backdrop of rolling, melodic arps and subtle chords. Intensity builds leading up to the break where a smooth melodic sequence plays out before easing back to the main groove for the duration. Top notch progressive and a must for any late night set.

TFC – JOEY.L (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

TFC debuts on Bonzai Progressive with Joey.L which is filled with wonderful deep progressive layers and comes backed up with two superb remixes.

The Original Mix intros with a tight clipped kick and sharp hat combi as a very cool bouncing bass dances across the lower end getting this track into full swing early. Cool percussion patterns evolve and get the rhythms flowing beautifully as rising and falling FX bring wonderfully textured layers. The bass holds the track up brilliantly as bright and short arps deliver cool melodies. The break produces a pulsing bass with short vocal samples and takes us back to the main groove in style as the track intensifies to its climax. Top notch stuff and a must have track in any playlist.

Spanish DJ and producer Alex Vidal returns to Bonzai Progressive for remix duty after his much anticipated debut Solar Citadel which gained much support from all quarters. The intro here boasts a punchy kick and subtle hats arrangement as distant synths fade through bringing smooth deep progressive vibes along the way. The bass line throbs as it teases its way into the groove before letting loose and taking us on a deep and thoughtful journey. The track builds steadily to the break where a wave of melodic flavours are unleashed alongside rich pads that take us back into the main sound for the duration. Great stuff from Alex that will no doubt turn a few heads.

Australia’s own Audio Noir shows up for remix duty with another of his outstanding creations. With a new album and lots of other remixes on the way, we are always excited to see what this guy has in store and yet again he does not disappoint. Big and ballsy breaks would be a nice description here with an added dose of dubstep flavours while retaining a progressive edge. The intro is a maelstrom of percussive elements that merge beautifully into flowing rhythms. Short stabs are met with brash edgy synths that tease and tease. The beats intensify and culminate in a frenzy of breaks alongside glitchy ear crunching synths. Contrasting bright arps play out in tandem creating a quite surreal groove that will appeal to many floors all over.

CROCY FEATURING COTRY – RECHT – REMIXES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Crocy’s Recht gets a full makeover with four fantastic remixes and a Vocal mix. The track was previously featured on Cry back in the Autumn of 2013 in instrumental form. This time around we are treated to the wonderful vocals of Cotry which give the track a beautiful narrative.

First up we get right into the action with the Vocal Mix. Tight drum arrangements sit over subtle percussions that build up a nice flowing rhythmic vibe. In contrast the deep bass transforms from soft and rounded into tough and gritty effortlessly adding a strong dynamic. The tantalising vocal really sets the track off as you find yourself locked in to the sultry grooves, great stuff yet again from Crocy.

Audio Noir just can’t keep away at the moment, the guy is churning out quality cuts and remixes at every turn. Here we have his Sound Of Eve Remix which totally beefs up the original in a big way. A shuffling percussion led intro is soon joined by a nice chunky kick that really gets the track on the move. A lush bass note takes over and oozes progressive house vibes to the backdrop of a tweaked vocal sample. The bassline rumbles through the sound as the layers come together to complete a truly epic slice of prog that is not to be missed.

Hady Tarek returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duties after his debut Night Shift performed very well indeed. He also recently saw a stint on Bonzai Basik Beats radio show among other things. Here he churns out a top class offering as the intro boasts a cool punchy kick withy rhythmic percussions bringing up the rear. Short chord stabs tease as a very smooth guitar lick in introduced adding an air of Balearia to the groove. The deep bass which powers the track is accompanied by the beautiful vocal from Cotry and takes us to the break where that guitar lick becomes more prominent. Edgy stuff and a definite must for any party this summer.

Jakhira delivers his stunning Undercurrent Remix. Recently we saw Jack on remix duty for Kindred Spirits and Wild Guess as well as his own Princess EP which featured very well on the circuit. Here he strips the groove back to a smooth flowing progressive vibe. Cool, punchy kicks are complimented with a subtle yet very effective percussion line that keeps the rhythm grooving. Deep and lush basses are the order of the day as the track takes us through the paces beautifully. The vocal sits perfectly in the sound as it contrasts the bass wonderfully. The break serves up a very cool melodic sequence as stuttered strings and synths do their work. Excellent stuff that is not to be missed.

Lastly on this superb pack we have a stunning slice from deepAlexander who we last saw on remix duty for Matan Caspi and Chantola as well as his own Midnight Launch. Here the groove takes a laidback approach with smooth flowing rhythms. The intro goes deep with a chunky kick alongside subtle percussion as a bubbling bass lurks in the rear. Sweet melodic flavours filter through and tease throughout as the layers form. On the break deep rooted chords accompany that sultry vocal as the track heads back into the main groove for the duration. Classy stuff that will be a welcome addition to any set.

AUDIO NOIR – BROOKLYN XPRESS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

On fire Australian DJ and producer Audio Noir is back again with another of his top notch creations with Brooklyn Xpress. Audio Noir is one of those producers that always delivers, he has an insight into where sounds originated and has the ability to transfer that sound with today’s technology. This skill is evident in all he produces, most notably with his last two incarnations R3WIND and Pressure. Brooklyn Xpress comes with three superb remixes making up this stunning slice of prog.

The Original Mix intros with a round of cool percussions and a hypnotic delayed bass note, these are soon joined by a nice chunky kick which gets us into full swing. Sublime synths weave in and out of the sound and give off a true progressive house vibe. The first break reveals the stunning bassline that just seems to materialise out of nowhere and adds a driving force to the sound. Cool FX fill the spaces and we are on our way into a world full of deep and dark grooves. The main break lets loose with surreal pads accompanied by a luscious vox and eases us back into the main track for the duration. Top quality yet again and not to be missed.

In-demand producer and remix artist Steve Sai is up first on remix duties with his superb take on the original. Steve has a knack of always pushing out quality cuts of his own and remixes alike. His sounds are featured regularly in many sets and download portals. With a new single on the way very soon we are always delighted to see his work come through the office. The remix intros with a huge chunky kick that will get any floor on the move. Subtle percussions provide a smooth rhythmic feel and short synth stabs build the layers up nicely. The track bursts right into full swing as the fantastic offset bass takes full control of the sound perfectly. Cool FX and one shot hits are evident through and add textures within the layers. Surreal atmospherics come through on the break as the bass continues to reign before slamming right back into the groove, superb stuff from Steve.

Alex Vidal returns to Bonzai Progressive after his debut, Solar Citadel was very well received indeed. No stranger to deep progressive vibes Alex has a keen eye for marrying sounds with ease. Here he sets out on a truly awesome journey as nice, well rounded kicks are contrasted with sweeping melodic pads that seem to float just above the arrangement beautifully. The track settles in as a fantastic deep bass bubbles up from below and dominates for the duration. The break gets groovy with those pads working wonders alongside a gated synth and a superb vocal before coursing effortlessly back to the main groove. Excellent stuff and a definite must have.

Deuzler is up next for remix duty and transforms the original brilliantly. He is an admirer of electronic music who has been around for many years in the Mexican scene, nine years as DJ and three years as a producer. He recently made his Bonzai debut with the stunning Go Toward The Light. Here he sets the remix off with a punchy kick and tight percussion arrangement. A groovy analog bass pulsates through the sound as it hits the offset notes creating a bouncy groove. Cool arps weave in and out of the sound and sit perfectly with metallic styled FX. A wispy pad meanders through on the break and the bass note change adds a new perspective. Classy stuff and a must for any set no doubt.

ALFONSO MUCHACHO – DESPINA (GREEN MARTIAN)

Alfonso Muchacho debuts on Green Martian with Despina. DJ and producer Alfonso learned his craft at underground parties across the UK. His remixes and productions are widely supported by some of the biggest names in the scene and his ridiculous work ethic ensures that his tracks will continue to fill the sets of the world’s biggest progressive DJs.

First up we have Range Park with its smooth progressive flowing vibe. Floating synths bring that progressive house vibe to life as chunky kicks and rhythmic percussions provide a solid beat. A deep, throbbing offset bass envelopes the sound and takes it a little deeper as contrasting melodic flavours filter through. Very cool and dancey cut here which is not to be missed.

Despina gets into full progressive house mode with a stunningly mesmerizing synth that captivates throughout the track. Tight drums keep the groove moving as a fantastic bassline takes control. Melancholic melodies flow as a myriad of arps and synths weave together to provide a surreal atmosphere. Nice, deep and hypnotic progressive grooves fit for any party, not to be missed.
