AITRA & E.F.G. – SPLASH OUT FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Aitra and E.F.G. debut on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Splash. Since childhood Aitra was interested in club music. As a result of this fascination she has begun her adventure with music production in 2011. Since then, her tracks have been released on labels such as Mistique Music, Electronic Tree. Elliptical Sun, Round Triangle, Majestic Family, Pineapple Digital or Clinique Recordings. E.F.G.’s first musical influences date back to the late ’90s, listening to tunes from acts like The Prodigy and Fatboy Slim who have played a significant role in his musical taste formation. His true passion started in 2005 after discovering trance and techno music. In 2008 E.F.G. released his first tracks and shortly after realised that his style developed into progressive house sound which is his main genre up to today. 2013 turned out as a breakthrough year for Oleg with some big achievements like double support from Markus Schulz, highly praised releases via Electronic Tree, Mistique Music and finally playing successful gigs across Poland.

ALEX VIDAL – MESMERIZED (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Spanish DJ and producer Alex Vidal churns out another top notch cut on Bonzai Progressive with Mesmerized. Just a few months ago we saw him on remix duty for Audio Noir’s, Life which proved very popular indeed on many playlists. Since then he has racked up appearances on our Ibiza 2015 compilation as well as showings on Green Martian’s Afterhour Trax 15 and 16.

Mesmerized takes us down into the progressive abyss with a truly captivating array of sounds that blend effortlessly into a superb construction. Right from the off as the percussions form up to the backdrop of an atmospheric pad and the fading in punchy kicks, we get locked into the groove. A proper, raw, dirty bass picks up the pace and really delivers the goods to keep asses shakin’. Scattered around you’ll find smooth vocal licks and subtle melodic phrases that pop out for a short time before getting lost in the mire once more. An epic slice of prog that will definitely grab the attention of many this summer.

Distant Lights intros with a somewhat tender kick drum that sits nicely alongside those captivating pads that ebb and flow. A smooth and steady rhythm is picked up by the crispy hats and tight percussion arrangement with a further boost by the deep rooted, driving bass line that dominates the track throughout. Sweeping strings and pads come complete with drifting melodies as synths threaten to burst out. On the break be prepared to totally lose yourself in the cosmic soundscape with that tough edged bass line as the backbone. A hell of a track that is most definitely going to be a main player in many sets no doubt.

The Original Mix intros with a cool punchy kick that packs a lot of power and sits in dominance over sharp edged percussions that provide a solid rhythm throughout. A deep strong bass line bursts through to take control alongside cool piano chords. A wonderful sax riff takes the lead and ramps up the groovy elements of the track in style. This track dishes out a real smooth house sound that will have the floors full in no time, superb stuff.

The Hey, I Was First… Mix picks up where the original left off in a kind of ironic way. The pure house driven elements remain, courtesy of that grooving saxophone and warm piano chords. A much more progressive theme runs through this sound with the introduction of cool synths that sit back enough to allow the sax to take centre stage once again. Excellent stuff you will not want to miss.

RUSLAN VASHKEVICH – BODHISATTVA FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with the impressive Bodhisattva. Last time out we saw Ashuar gain a lot of support and no doubt this one will be no exception. The original mix of Bodhisattva intros with a punchy kick as sweeping FX cascade in the background. Subtle percussive elements come through as winding synths fade in along with a superb, deep rolling bassline that drives the groove beautifully. The track settles into a deep progressive vibe that really grabs a hold of you and locks you in with its obsessive qualities. On the break that bassline takes over and hypnotises as it fades in and out to the backdrop of eerie synths and distant spoken vocal. A nod to the hedy days of progressive here that will definitely grab the attention of many jocks no doubt.

AUDIO NOIR – NOW & ZEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

One of Bonzai’s most prolific artists delivers his stunning studio album, Now & Zen, filled to the brim of top quality original works and remixes. Audio Noir has certainly made Bonzai Progressive his home over the last number of years. He has racked up a hugely impressive back catalogue which covers many forms of music styles. His diversity has driven him to be able to complete this album. He draws on some of his past remixes and transforms them into his own Zen style, and he looks to the future with outstanding original works. This album will take you on a journey through beautifully constructed soundscapes that will allow you to detach from reality and create a sense of enlightenment. A much anticipated collection of works from an outstanding talent, definitely not to be missed.

The structure of the album brings out a beautifully crafted narrative that lulls us into its blissful realms. 17 tracks are huddled together with each bringing their own Zen like state. Audio Noir has selected some of the finest progressive tracks to be converted into this Zen structure. Tracks from Dark Soul Project & Mathov, Phi Phi, Airwave, DJ Fire, Samotarev featuring Max Magnum, Matan Caspi, Rise and Fall, Alexey Lisin & Ange and Cordoba are transformed into totally immersive and mesmerizing constructs that allow us to dig deep into our imagination. The attention to detail is sublime and ranges from subtle melodic phrases to full on intense, climactic soundscapes.

A large portion of the album is made up of Audio Noir’s original works, and he enlists the help of two outstanding vocalists to really get the goosebumps on the rise. Natalie Major is brought in for vocal duty on the wonderful Story Of Our Lives, a truly captivating track that intros with a very soft and deep bass tone. The vocals come through early on and straight away you get hooked on to the attractive sounds. In the background, rich cascading strings offer the perfect balance of both high and low frequencies. Quite simply a beautiful track.

Australian Epic delivers an abstract look into music with a mixture of contrasting sounds that converge in perfect harmony. From glitchy to warm rising pads and deep basses, the track builds beautifully into a raw almost urbanised sound complete with a tough edged drum section. Definitely something for the late night sessions.

Love intros with a tribalistic drum arrangement before cool plonky piano notes come through. A softer side develops with the introduction of beautiful strings that sweep through the sound. A deep bass walks through the groove as sensual vocals are unleashed. A deeply though provoking track, brilliant.

The Hawthorne Effect delves deep with a superb hypnotic trait that reaches out the deeper recesses of the mind. A melancholic sound prevails as wonderful sounds converge to the backdrop of a fantastic drum sequence. In contrast, a melodic piano phrase plays the track out and leaves you wanting much more.

Lena Grig joins Audio Noir on Like The Wind which intros with a cool bass pulse that leads up to a superb percussions arrangement filled with crisp hats and claps. A big 80’s synth sound peeks out and the strong vocal from Lena combines perfectly. A much deeper vibe takes over for the duration as the lower end is given free reign on this expertly crafted number.

Furō intros with cool percussions amid a plethora of superb FX that sweep through the track and lead us up to a fantastic synth riff. We are teased with the notion of a pounding kick drum as mini risers takes us through each section of the track. A world of melody is unleashed as the myriad of sound blends perfectly to the pulsing bass that dominates. A wonderful track full of anticipation and energy that will definitely grab your attention.

Navagio Beach rounds up the album and does it in style. The track bursts into life with a crash that fades out to reveal the most beautiful melodic piano sequence alongside soft gated synths, sweeping pads and the mesmerizing action of the sea. Quite simply, stunning.
