MANU RIGA & FE MALEFIZ – FORGOTTEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The hugely talented Manu Riga joins forces with the wonderfully gifted vocalist Fe Malefiz on their track, Forgotten which comes backed up with a top notch remix from Mark Found. Over the last several months we have seen Manu collaborate with various other artists, from which some stunning results have flourished. This time around is no different as Fe is clearly the right voice for this sound. Manu is a Bonzai Progressive stalwart and an all out work horse, his attention to detail and quality is second to none and the proof is in his works. Fe is no stranger to these shores, she has worked with Dark Soul Project and Mathov on a number of occasions with great support coming in from all angles. But, we’ll let the music do the talking here and remember to keep an eye on Manu as he will have much more coming in the months ahead which we are very excited about.

The Original Mix intros with a real smooth progressive sound as nice punchy kicks are met with an array of subtle percussions that add lots of weight to the groove. A deep reverberating bass sits on the low end with a menacing tease as the percussions become much more prominent. We get the first taste of Fe’s vocal and right away we become mesmerized by the subtlety and richness of her voice. On the break, accompanying the beautiful vocal lies a melancholic narrative as rich strings swell up and take us back into the main groove where a cool, more jagged bass comes through. The track takes us on an intriguing journey that throws up many twists and turns filled with melody and emotion. An epic slice of prog that will definitely appeal to many.

The Dub Version picks up the track without the main vocal from the Original. A captivating sound filled with deep, dark and emotional elements with subtle melodic phrases that caress your soul. Manu has left in little snippets of the vocal which really give the Dub its own characteristic. Superb stuff yet again from this guy.

Mark Found steps up to the remix desk with his Red Heart Remix. Very much on form, Mark is fresh off the back of his remix for Blufeld’s A World Less Ordinary which charted well across many sites. Prior to this he had a run of appearances on many compilations with the most recent being Bonzai’s WMC 2015 package. We hope to see more from this guy in the future so stay tuned for more. The remix intros with a surreal sequence as strange voices are joined by eerie sounds and a cool rising arp that dominates the sound. Chunky kicks and crispy hats deliver a solid groove as a deep bass probes its way through. Big stabby synths litter the groove and are soon joined by more menacing, distorted synths that build a wall of sound. At the midway point the break unleashes a myriad of sounds that raid the senses before we get thrust right back into the thick of it for the duration. Top notch from Mark yet again.

TRIBAL WARRIORS – REVIVAL (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E. Push returns to Bonzai Progressive with the two track tech fest, Revival. Last time out, at the start of 2015, we saw Defiance gain a lot of support from all quarters. Since then, as you would imagine, M.I.K.E. Push continues on his relentless musical journey filled with worldwide DJ appearances and a ton of studio work. His Club Elite Sessions is going strong with a huge fan base and top DJ guests making regular appearances. Always worth keeping an eye on this guy, he never disappoints.

Revival intros with a very cool techy vibe as punchy kicks are joined by razor sharp closed hats and snappy claps. Warm, rounded analogue basses accompanied by brighter synths cascade downwards and deliver a real smooth groove before a gritty sub bass bursts through. Sweeping pads make an appearance and bring a cool contrasting flavour and textured layer. After a short break filled with an array of shuffling hats we are treated to a sublime filtered arp that captivates as it weaves its way through the sound. A brilliant display of progressive house with a fusion of tech, superb stuff.

Alpha Beta sets off with an in your face pounding chunky kick and harsh hats that slice through the sound to the backdrop of cool noise effects. A warm and full bassline fades through and really gets the groove moving with a little help from some organic sounds and cool techno induced blips. The track goes through a series of peaks and troughs as the layers build resulting in some intense climactic sequences. Definitely one for the bouncier floors here and a must have track in your collection.

DARK SOUL PROJECT & MATHOV – BETWEEN 2 SIDES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dark Soul Project and Mathov are on a bit of a roll at the moment. The guys have been churning out top quality tracks of late and this time around is no exception. Between 2 Sides comes backed up with two superb remixes as well as the original which will definitely whet the appetite for an indulging prog experience.

The Original Mix takes us into a smooth, almost laidback ride into house music with deep, flowing grooves that glide effortlessly along the sound. A deep and probing bass keeps the track on point as rich strings ebb and flow with climactic prowess right through the track. At the midway point we are treated to a very cool siren like lead that dominates with its cosmic vibe. Perfectly wrapped tune complete with a super tight arrangement that will definitely keep floors moving.

Netherlands based DJ and producer Thorin returns to remix duty with another of his sublime takes. It’s been a while since we last saw Thorin round these shores, it was back at the end of 2014 when he provided a brilliant remix on Manu Riga’s Tai Chi Girl 2014. But, he has been very busy indeed with remixes for Rick Pier O’Neill on Mistique Music and appearances on several top progressive compilations. On the remix we get treated to Thorin’s smooth vibes that take us deep into prog with an uplifting feeling that is born out of those gracious strings and pads as they cascade beautifully filled with wonderful melodies. The solid grooves are shored up by a tight drum section and smooth basses which provide the perfect platform for the brighter elements to shine. A definite must have track in your collection you will not want to miss.

Blufeld is up next with his Darkside Remix and yet again he pulls out all the stops to deliver on the quality front. Last time out we saw his track, A World Less Ordinary, gain a lot of support across the board. Currently Blufeld remains hard at work in the studio and no doubt we will be seeing a lot more in the months ahead. On the DJ front he continues with his radioshow Progmospherica which you can catch every month on Pure Fm. Here, the remix intros with a nice chunky kick that filters in to reveal crispy hats and some cool percussions that dish out a solid rhythm. A chugging, multi layered bassline drives the groove beautifully as warm strings and pads begin to rise. Sweet melodic phrases flow through the sound creating a wonderfully textured construction. On the break that bass drives on as the pads are joined by soft voices and a winding siren lead. Top notch stuff from this guy that is not to be missed.

AUDIO NOIR – PROGRESSIVE TALES EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The prolific Audio Noir dishes out another tasty treat with this two tracker entitled Progressive Tales. Just recently he was on hand for remix duty on the revamped Extreme Trax release, Sound & Future where he delved into a more electro theme with fantastic results. Currently he is finishing off some very exciting work which we hope to be seeing very soon. Lots to keep an eye and an ear on with this guy so stay tuned.

Solace & Light drags you deep into the progressive world right from the off as big chunky broken kicks burst through to the backdrop of a stunning atmospheric soundscape that really locks you in. An infectious arp dishes out a sweet melody as the beats go for a full on four to the floor groove. The track soon reveals an energetic, driving bassline that takes over the sound before we hit the break where a dark progressive lead is unleashed with a little help from a classic trance-like gated vox. A big and ballsy production that will definitely light up floors everywhere for sure.

Spaghetti Western intros with a surreal musical trotting hoof sound that is joined by punchy kicks, sharp claps and a devilish, driving bassline that dominates the groove. Shuffling hats provide a solid rhythmic platform where the layers build effortlessly as huge deep pad sequences form up on the break alongside a cool spoken vocal. The leads inject a dose of adrenaline that sends this deep progressive groover into overdrive complete with a sprinkling of Morricone for good measure. One for the big floors here that will not disappoint.
