CHRIS RAVEN – I KNOW YOU LOVE ME TOO – ALFONSO MUCHACHO REWORK FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Chris Raven’s 1998 smasher, I Know You Love Me Too, gets the remix treatment on our next 25 year celebrations release. The talented Alfonso Muchacho is the artist in the hot seat this time around and he delivers a sublime effort that compliments the original beautifully. This one marked Chris Raven’s debut on the scene and featured a superb, deep progressive groove alongside a sultry, melancholic vocal. Originally appearing in 1997, Bonzai Trance Progressive snapped up this hit a year later putting this special sound into a worldwide audience making it an instant classic. Remixes from Bruce Norris and Van Bellen sparked a decade’s long debate as to which was better, both stand out as greats in our opinion. Chris went on to release several other top notch cuts on BTP putting his work firmly within the realms of retro classics status. Alfonso Muchacho debuted on our Green Martian imprint with Despina back in July 2014 before delivering a fantastic remix on Mendexx’s Life Begins on Bonzai Progressive in November 2014. Since then he has went on to feature in various compilations as well as stepping up for gust mix duties on Bonzai Basik Beats. Alfonso learned his craft at underground parties across the UK and his remixes and productions were quickly supported by some of the biggest names in the scene. His ridiculously committed work ethic churns out quality results at every turn and will ensure that his tracks continue to fill the sets of the world’s biggest progressive DJs.

Here the remix slowly extracts the essence of the original as the elements fuse together bringing an air of intensity to the sound. We’re teased with the captivating vocals that sit beautifully in the groove as a calming force against a solid, tough progressive workout. Tight beats and shuffling percussions ensure a flowing rhythm as a droning bass dominates the low end. Sharp synth hits deliver the original melody in a unique fashion that captivates and mesmerizes. A fitting tribute to a brilliant track that is not to be missed.

His tracks also appear regularly on Beatport’s top listings making him a much sought after artist. Great to have him on board.

The Original Mix sets a deep progressive tone right from the off as chunky kick drums pave the way alongside subtle percussions and a powerful sub bassline that bubbles up from the depths. Swirling, eerie pads fill out the background as haunting vocals creep in. Surreal melodies float through the sound giving off a true underground vibe. Superb stuff that will keep the groove alive in any late night set.

Fresh off the back of his most recent BP slice – Farewell Inti – JoC H steps up to the remix desk with a sublime effort to get the progressive juices flowing. Here JoC H takes us on a sublime journey deep into the progressive abyss with a superb construction made up of tight beats, rhythmic percussions and ethereal cascading melodies. Punchy kicks are at the forefront with crispy hi hats on the offset that generate a nice flowing rhythm. A strong bassline commands the low end as it probes deeper and deeper while those melodies glide effortlessly through the groove. Top notch stuff indeed.

After a short hiatus we welcome back Samotarev who dishes out his latest remix on this one. Last time we seen this guy here was back in June 2016 with the stunning Voice Of Phangan which gained a lot of support. Here he takes us deep, way deep in the progressive sound. Leading the way we have a solid kick that is joined by a bright closed hat and pulsating pads. The bassline keeps the groove firmly in the underground with its hypnotic gait. Cool percussive elements deliver a steady rhythm while mysterious vocals lurk in the background. A fantastic cut that will definitely turn a few heads.

Short Circuit gets right down to business with a nice chunky kick drum and crispy hi hat combi alongside tasty chord stabs and a deep subby bassline. The keys are sublime here and really deliver a true deep house groove. Rhythmic percussions will get the dancing feet shuffling and floors filled as the track lures you in. A beautifully constructed slice that will be a welcome addition in any set.

FlexKey delivers a stompingly good deep house groover filled with warm tones and a fantastic drum arrangement that will force you to move. Punchy kicks lead the way with slicing hi hats on the offset while a meandering deep bassline moves effortlessly through the lower frequencies. A rhythmic percussion section dishes out a dancey groove accompanied by expert keys and fresh vocals that give the track club vibe. Brilliant stuff and the perfect fodder for any deep house fueled set.

Both tracks will ensure that any set has depth as well as provoking a melancholic feeling. Great to have this superb talent on board and we hope to see more in the future.

The epic multi layered story that is La Oscuridad is up first and goes deep right from the off muted drums are layered over a glitchy sound and eerie pads. Chunky kick drums fade in drive the track nicely with a mesmeric trait while sultry synths and mysterious vocals come through. The track cuts deep into your soul and holds on relentlessly for the duration wrapping you up in its warming grooves as the more darker side creeps through. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Whatever You Know intros with some very cool dark drums and hypnotic percussions that deliver a solid, tight arrangement. On top of the bassy tones we find sharper synth notes as well as surreal FX, melancholic melodies and a haunting vocal. The groove takes hold and we find ourselves locked on for the duration on this epic 11 minute monster of a track that is a definite must have for the late night sessions.

CHECCO ESSE & ADRIANO DODICI – MOTION EP (PROGREZ)

Italian DJ and producer duo Checco Esse and Adriano Dodici are back at Progrez with the superb two track Motion EP. The guys’ last outing here was back in August 2016 with the Quick EP which gained great support from many. Checco and Adriano are considered with very high regard among their peers and are known for the outstanding quality in their work. Since the early nineties they’ve been delivering the goods and we certainly hope they’ll be delivering many more goodies in the future.

If you’re looking for some deep hypnotic progressive grooves for that moment in your set when you want take things to the next level, then you’ve come to the right place. High Motion does exactly that with its sublime mesmeric groove, steeped in wonderful lush basses and ethereal atmospheres. Yes, this is progressive house at its rawest, and it will not disappoint. Tight beats and shuffling percussions keep the rhythm pumping while a beautifully crafted bassline gets the hips swaying. A cacophony of melodic synths and FX blend effortlessly to give that trippy vibe which is accompanied by a fantastic spoken vocal that draws you in with an intriguing narrative. On the break a melodious piano opens the enlightenment flood gates before the solid beats return for the duration. An absolute stomping track that is not to be missed.

Up next we have Slow Motion which certainly lives up to its title as the beats are slowed to a laidback tempo that carries an infectious groove that will hook you in. A tight arrangement made up of chunky kicks and bright crispy hats sets the pace as a chugging bassline brings the low end to the fore. Superb melodic pianos litter the sound alongside various stabbing synths and cascading arps making this the perfect fodder for the wind down after a solid night of partying.
