DARK SOUL PROJECT & MATHOV FEATURING FE MALEFIZ – AIN’T NO MELODIES LEFT FOR ME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dark Soul Project & Mathov enlist the stunning vocals of Fe Malefiz on the superb Ain’t No Melodies Left For Me which comes backed up with three fantastic remixes. Dark Soul Project marks his full debuts on Bonzai after his track Feels Like Heaven featured on our Club Traxx Progressive House compilation. He brings a wealth of talents to the table as his impressive back catalogue will attest. Mathov returns after his highly regarded Dark Activity was released in early November with support pouring in from all quarters. Since leaving uplifting trance behind he is definitely causing a stir in the progressive world with his smooth grooves. German singer Fe Malefiz provides the vocals for this release and it’s clear why she has been chosen as you will find out. Fe has worked with many artists over the years including Martin Merkel among others.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a cool drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks, sharp hats and rhythmic percussions. The track breaks to reveal a lush bass that sits perfectly within the groove and becomes the mainstay of the track. We get our first glimpse of the vocal here with its haunting tones and melodic phrases. The groove settles in with a strong progressive edge that will keep the heads nodding. The main break unleashes the vocal as it sweeps throughout before the Bjork-esque song comes through just at the right time to round up this absolute stunner of a track. A definite must have.

On remix duty we have Tallinn’s own Zas & Sanze aka Mindgamers. We haven’t seen the guys for a while as they have been busy with DJing and other projects, but we know they will be unleashing their latest works soon which we are all excited about. Here the guys do their thing and they do it well as always. Tight progressive vibes right from the off, muted kicks are joined by a fading in bass alongside cool FX. The kicks transform into chunky hits as the bass warms to become a lush grooving sequence. Fe’s vocal comes through beautifully here and blends so perfectly with the sounds around it. The groove is captivating as it lulls you into its grip with the help of sharp melodic sequences that add character and contrast to the sound. Another fine offering from the guys and sure to be a main feature in many sets.

Kintar returns for remix duty here at Bonzai Progressive with his unique blend of prog house that we know and love. DJing is a big part of his career, playing all over the world, you’d think he wouldn’t have the time for producing but he finds the time and always gets it done with great results. Here he intros the track with a fantastic low end kick, crispy hats and snappy claps. A deep resonating bassline shores up the rear as the layers build bringing surreal sweeping pads that lead up to some cool, subtle melodic flavours. The vocal is used sparingly with great effect as the anticipation builds with the help of an intense piano chord. Wonderful stuff out of Argentina and a track you have got to have.

Audio Noir never stops, he relentlessly churns out top quality productions and remixes to the delight of many. His most recent stint was Reworked Volume 2 from his album Almost Famous which have been getting fantastic support from many quarters. Much more to come out of Australia which we always look forward to. Here he gives us his Rekonstruction mix which takes the tempo back a bit, getting into a more laidback vibe. The intro is a wonderful cacophony of glitched FX and atmospheric sequences which combine beautifully before a superb warm bass breaks things up and provides that almost downtempo quality. The kicks sit mid range and allow you to become immersed in their beat while cool crispy hats bring a rhythmic flow to the sound. The vocal keeps the track firmly on course with its wonderfully haunting and rich tones. Subtle melodies play out as you become hypnotized by this sublime progressive groove. Yet again we get hooked by an Audio Noir cut, not to be missed.

CHRIS HARRIS – FEELS REAL? (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Chris Harris makes a welcome return with fantastic driving progressive grooves of Feels Real? His full debut back in the summer of this year, What’s Left Of Them, turned a few heads with support coming in from all angles. Coming backed up with a brilliant remix you can expect to be blown away with this track.

The Original Mix gets us on the move with its punchy kicks and rolling bassline setting the groove firmly into the progressive realm. Cool percussions layer up bringing a steady rhythmic vibe while sweeping synths take us on a surreal, twisting journey. The track settles beautifully into its groove as the myriad of sounds paint a colourful picture filled with elements of psy and trance. The break reveals an absolute gem of a vocal sample that sits so perfectly into the sound with its melancholic undertones. Superb sweeping arps cascade through the sound before we get thrust right back into the main track. A stunning slice of deep hypnotizing progressive house that will no doubt find itself crossing over into many sets.

Manu Riga is up on remix duty with his Tribal Remix and yet again he hits it right out of the park. Currently he is working on lots of new material with a slightly different direction in mind which we are very excited about. His newest track No Time Left is a collab with DJ Fire and continues to garner much support, keep an eye out for more from this guy and you will not be disappointed. On the remix he digs deep and delivers a superb progressive cut. The intro gets right into it with a nice snappy kick and shuffling percussions that get the rhythm flowing. A very sinister bassline sits in the wings waiting to pounce as it bubbles up with a raw energetic power. The vocal sample used is just the perfect accompaniment to the sound and continues throughout the track in all the right places. Cool arps litter the groove while on the break a much more melodic flow comes through alongside that vocal which takes us back into full on mode. Deep, tribal, full on grooves that will be a big feature in any set.

BONZAI WORX – VOLUME 5 (BONZAI VINYL) – PRE-SALE AVAILABLE NOW!

As vinyl continues its steady rise we are pleased to present our next vinyl release, Bonzai Worx Volume 5. After the success of previous wax releases we trawled through our catalogue and came up with four of the hottest and grooviest cuts to get the etching treatment. Tracks from Van Czar featuring Sugar Love, Ecco, Sa.Du and Alfredo Mena as well as a remix from Manuel Palmitesta have all been selected this time for their diverse ranges. Expect deep, groovy, sultry, edgy, gritty and downright banging tracks on this limited pressing.

Sa.Du’s Imaging Your Self gives off deep and sultry sounds as a provocative female vocal swamps the vibe. Cool rhythms are formed out of a tight drum arrangement with punchy kicks and sharp hats. The bassline gels everything together brilliantly and on the break a female vocal comes to life with a huge diva-esque chorus, top notch production in effect.

Ecco’s Switch gets the remix treatment from Bonzai debutant Manuel Palmitesta. The track intros with a punchy kick and classic percussion set up with an in your face hypnotic siren styled synth note that dominates the sound. A very subtle yet effective bass sits in the rear and binds the track together beautifully. On the break a techy element filters into the sound as the percussions keep the groove flowing before we slam right back into full swing with an air raid siren for good measure. Top notch stuff.

Alfredo Mena gives us his track The Scrawl with its full on techno vibes. A deep throbbing sub bass is joined by cool clipped kicks and a superb percussion line followed up with crispy clear hats. Cool vocal samples give the track a darker feel and makes this a strong favourite for the darker rooms. A big feature in the track is the expertly arranged percussion section, tight and to the point as various rhythms filter through alongside a more energetic secondary bass and a continuous metallic perc hit.

Van Czar joins forces with Sugar Love on Love Trip which intros with a tough bass sound and an enticing sultry vocal. The track settles into a full on Techno groove with punchy kicks and super crisp hats alongside that gritty edged bass. The vocals continue to lull you into their lustful grasp and adds a real dynamic contrast to the sound. A real powerful Techno slice yet again from Van and no doubt this one will see a lot of playtime.
