CROCY featuring ASHLEY BERNDT – MIND – REMIXES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Crocy’s Mind is given the remix treatment on our next release and we have enlisted the talents of two top notch producers to lend their talents on the mixing desk. Mind was first released back in Summer 2015 to a great reception, the vocals from Ashley Berndt had a huge impact and we’ve no doubt that these new cuts will follow suit.

First up we have Pavlin Petrov on remix duty and he certainly knows how to turn up the groovy meter. Pavlin first appeared on BP back in September 2015 with the superb Feeling Alive which featured the vocal talents of Selina Stone, and what a debut that was. Hailing from Bulgaria Pavlin grew up with the music by Jean Michelle Jarre, Vangleis and Enigma. He started producing in 2005 with a keen interest in Ambient before he got more into progressive house. Since then he mixes his tracks with an ambient atmosphere which is essential for progressive house. He likes to experiment with every new track and express that deep and dark feeling dedicated to his unique style. Over the last 5 or 6 years he has released a plethora of music on various labels including Mystic Carousel Records, KP Recordings, Beat Block Records, Suffused Music among others. On top of this he has an impressive list of remixes for others making him a very much in demand artist. On the remix Pavlin finds that precarious line between tech house and progressive house in a way that allows both iterations to meet in the middle and deliver the best of both worlds. A solid workout ensues complete with nice punchy kicks, a raw, organic bassline and swirling pads. On the break we get a taste of Ashley’s stunning vocal and a reminder just how good this seemingly simplistic vocal really is. A perfect track for that crossover period in any set.

Since his first Bonzai Progressive outing back in June 2015, we have seen some fine work from this guy, both in original and remix formats. Starting out in Techno he made his way over to the Progressive side with a truly unique style that is definitely getting a lot of attention. Always worth checking out this guy’s endeavours, we hope to be seeing more from him in the future. Alexey’s remix goes straight into a deep house groove with a series of chord stabs that are mashed up beautifully resulting in a cool upbeat kinda vibe and are soon joined by the superb dancefloor friendly kicks and percussion that will keep the booty’s shakin all night. The star of the show however is that mesmerizing piano riff that weaves throughout the track. Working beautifully with the vocals on offer this piano riff is a nod to proper classic deep house that will leave punters feeling very good indeed. A definite must have in general but if you know your stuff then this one is for you.

Crocy’s House Mix intros with a real nice chunky kick and a crispy hi-hat that is soon joined by cool percussions. A quirky pluck takes over as a deep bassline dominates the low end resulting in a perfectly matched arrangement that allows the groove to flow effortlessly. The vocals start to make an appearance in a subtle way before Ashley’s voice bursts out into full on effect on the break accompanied by that super sweet piano riff from the original cut. A much tougher slice of progressive than the original which gives the track a whole new dimension, fantastic stuff.

Rounding off this top notch remix pack we have Crocy’s House Instrumental which strips out the vocals for those that like to keep it purely musical.

AUDIO NOIR featuring JIMMIE WESTWOOD – FAR FROM HOME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Taken from his second studio album Artificial Star and featuring a superb vocal from Jimmie Westwood, Audio Noir’s Far From Home gets the remix treatment delivering three very different takes on the original.

Audio Noir’s Rekonstruction intros with a cool 80’s electro styled drum arrangement which delivers a dancey feel to the sound. The drums are the big focus here and are soon joined by equally cool percussions that etch out smooth rhythms throughout. Swirling pads offer up a sweet melodic sequence that fizzles out to be replaced by a heavy hitting gritty bass workout that totally transforms the sound. That gritty bass twists and morphs with an underlying acid tone and sits snuggly with the raspy vocal from Jimmie to the backdrop of some seriously shuffling hi hats and stuttering perc hits. Top notch stuff that will appeal to many for sure.

The legend that is Airwave takes on remix duties on Audio Noir’s Far From Home and delivers another slice of pure progressive breaks that will get any venue to fever pitch. Airwave continues to enjoy a hectic schedule as an artist and DJ with gigs taking him all over the world. How he still finds the time to produce top quality sounds we will never know, but one thing we do know is he never disappoints. His recent showing on Bonzai & Friends 500 with the exclusive Vega Shining, was a most welcome surprise for his army of fans and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more from this guy in the future. On the remix he takes us on an exciting journey that raises the energy levels with that solid breaks arrangement complete with a chunky kick and super cool snares that add a lot of character to the sound. The drums evolve throughout the track with little nuanced beats cropping up here and there while a wonderfully low bass resonates all around. Simple and highly effective short guitar riffs get the musical side flowing alongside Jimmie’s New Order-esque vocal delivery. The verses of the song ride along so smoothly and melt into the sound while the chorus winds up into a brilliant climactic event. Top notch from Laurent yet again, not to be missed.

Bonzai stalwart Crocy shows up on remix duty with a fantastic progressive workout that will light up the floors no doubt. His last outing gave us a brilliant remix on Matan Caspi & Roy Lebens’ Klubnichka as well as an exclusive track for Bonzai & Friends 500 entitled Bedroom Stories. The remix intros with a solid kickdrum that pounds out a nice big chunky beat. Warm synths start to fade in and are soon joined by a rhythmic percussion section that gets the feet moving toward the floor. A phat probing bass comes at us in various layers resulting in a deep driving bassline that really ramps up the energy on the track. Short vocal snippets creep through as the lead synth delivers an electrifying groove. Excellent stuff yet again from Crocy that will be a welcome addition in any set.

MATAN CASPI & ROY LEBENS – KLUBNICHKA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Tel Aviv based DJ and producer Matan Caspi joins forces with fellow Tel Aviv DJ and producer Roy Lebens on the superb Klubnichka which comes backed up with two brilliant remixes. Matan is undoubtedly one of the most productive & rising electronic music producers under the spotlight. He has been constantly developing his music productions and his work has been internationally exposed and played by many artists and top DJ’s around the globe. He has releases a slew of top tracks on Bonzai Progressive, among others, over the last few years and sits in high regard among his peers. Roy is also an artist on the up, he has seen a raft of releases on many labels and is no stranger to Bonzai Progressive, in 2014 he featured on our Club Traxx Progressive House 1 compilation with his track Alien Boys alongside R3cycle. As well as many solo cuts, Roy and Matan have delivered lots of top notch tracks as a duo, particularly through Matan’s Outta Limits label.

The Original Mix intros with a solid rhythmic drum fuelled workout that will get the floors on the move for sure. Cool vocals sit in the background as a gritty synth rises before dissipating and leaving a fantastic grooving bass line in its wake. The subtle vocal continues and is joined by a cool clubby female vocal that works perfectly with tech house elements of the sound. Various basses are introduced creating a maelstrom of intricate patterns and textures. The female vocal shines on the break alongside those tightly packed drums and percussions which bode well for a smooth rhythmic flow. Excellent stuff you will not want to miss.

Dennis Franchi and studio partner C-Les make up the House Lovin Criminals and their mission is to take various house music fusions and bring them to new heights while retaining a classic vibe. The guys have known each other for a number of years and regularly DJ’d together at various parties. They went their different ways for a time before somehow getting back together and ultimately getting into the studio. A truly fresh approach from this dynamic duo and we have no doubt they will make their mark on the scene in a big way. The House Lovin Criminals debut came in the summer of 2015 with Basetimes and proved to be a dancefloor hit. The remix intros with a super bassy punchy kick that pounds out a solid hit which is joined by a cool open hat and gritty synth shots. The female vocal spurs the bass line that meanders through the sound beautifully delivering a deep solid groove. Cool synths come through on the break and keep the tech vibes flowing which will transfer effortlessly onto the floors.

Slovenian DJ and producer Matevz Crocy aka Crocy returns to remix duty and dishes up another tasty treat for us to get our groove on. His last outing on Bonzai Progressive, Mind featuring Ashley Berndt was a firm favourite among many and continues to prove popular. Here, Crocy takes us deep into tech house with his effort as super tight drums are led by a nice punchy kick and crispy hat combo. Cool synth risers litter the sound alongside perfectly placed vocals that give the groove a definite club vibe. The bass line rattles through the sound with ease and undergoes various transformations, from smooth and well rounded to tough and edgy which works beautifully with the groove. To top off the tech vibe we get some very cool stabby synths that offer an air of retro which will definitely go down very well on the floors.

CROCY featuring ASHLEY BERNDT – MIND (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bonzai Progressive firm favourite Crocy is back with another of his spine tingling progressive cuts entitled Mind. He once again enlists the delicious talents of Canadian vocalist Ashley Berndt who was also the voice behind the very well received Cry. Crocy continues to be a much revered artist on the scene given his attention to detail and levels of creativity. His music finds its way into many sets and has featured on lots of compilations across Europe. On the DJing front he continues to impress with ass shakin, feet stompin mixes.

Ashley is making her mark on the scene with perfectly executed vocals and strong lyrics, both of which fit snugly into the progressive, deep house genre. A superb talent that captivates with a magical singing voice, we are sure to be hearing a lot more from this lady in the future.

The original mix of Mind opens up with a solid kick and cool hats and cymbals that set the scene for a very dancey groove. A short vocal snippet leads up to the wonderfully rich bassline that becomes a big focus on the track and the main drive throughout. Sweet melodic piano sequences are the perfect accompaniment to the beautifully weighted vocal performance from Ashley. Another superb progressive cut from Crocy that will gain a lot of attention no doubt.

Comfort intros with a cool drum arrangement made up of punchy kicks, sharp claps, crispy hats and rhythmic patterns. The attention remains firmly on the drum patterns throughout and along the way we are treated to some expert FX tweaking. The track takes on a surreal cosmic vibe filled with deep, dirty synths and cool noisy licks resulting in a very interesting construction. A must have tool in your box that will not disappoint.
