KEVIN VEGA – IN CHAINS (PROGREZ)

Kevin Vega heads up our next Progrez cut with the fantastic three tracker – In Chains. A big part of the Progrez journey, Kevin has consistently delivered the goods with his lush progressive house vibes. His last outing, The Gambler gained a lot of support across the board and since then he has racked up several top notch remixes for the likes of Dofamine and Airwave & DJ Fire. He also featured on Bonzai Progressive’s 500th release with his exclusive track – Afraid. With releases and remixes spread over various labels including Progrez, Bonzai Progressive, ADSR Records and GR8 Trance Music it’s always worth checking this guy out, he never disappoints.

First up we have In Chains with its superb progressive meets techno fusion. A tight arrangement filled with rhythmic percussions and a solid kick that drives the techno end of the track. On the progressive side we are treated to some cool cascading melodic arps that mesmerize with an infectious hook. A deep throbbing bassline lurks below alongside a simple yet highly effective low note. Top notch stuff that will definitely keep those darker floors rocking.

Trojan quickly builds to become a solid slice of progressive with a hint of techno weaving through to add a little spice. We find ourselves completely hooked on this totally engrossing groove that holds on relentlessly with a series of spiralling arps and a band of rich strings that add some wonderful textures. At the bottom we find a solid bass that holds the track together beautifully while providing a warm glow over the sound. Definitely a track to look out for, a welcome addition in any set.

Rounding off this fine cut we have The Gentle Warrior which intros with a subtle kick that soon finds a full bodied thump alongside a rhythmic percussion section. A deep pulsating bassline is let loose and we settle into real progressive groove that is joined by a nice tonal stab providing cool contrasting sounds. Just before the break a fantastic synth riff comes in alongside melodic pads that take us through the break and beyond. A superb track that offers a nice, diverse range of sound, perfect for a proper music hungry crowd.

A.R.E.S – BELISHA BEACON (KEVIN VEGA REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Our very own Kevin Vega shows up on remix duty and delivers another super cut for our pleasure. He gave us The Gambler back in April 2015 which saw great support from all quarters which is a testament to the expertly crafted sounds he churns out. The remix intros with a wonderful chunky bass with atmospheric FX and percussions going off in the background. At the forefront a fantastic bass takes over with deep probing prowess. The drum section continues to build and adds a shuffling groove to the rhythm which is brought to prominence by hypnotic shakers and tight patterns. Surreal synths give off a mysterious vibe that plays beautifully into the nature of the track, dark and moody. A fine slice of prog to get the juices flowing.

A.R.E.S – Belisha Beacon (Kevin Vega Remix), out this week on Progrez, is charted by Beatport in the Must Hear Progressive House chart!

Since 2011, after starting to produce his own works under the A.R.E.S. guise, he released tracks on Balkan Connection S.A, Green Snake Records, Massive Harmonys, Ambber Records and Entangled.

During this time he also put in some live shows before he edits his first album, Truth Be Told with 8 original tracks under the Ambber label.

Belisha Beacon takes on a deep and grooving progressive persona right from the get go as muted kicks are joined by a superb deep droning bass with a sprinkling of cascading arps. The kickdrums get a nice punchy boost ass the percussion layers build giving off a cool rhythmic flow. You can find very subtle psy element creep into the sound with the construction of the synth layers and the energizing bassline. A serious contender no doubt and a track that will definitely grab the attention of many, one to watch here.

KINDRED SPIRITS – DEMOISELLE (GREEN MARTIAN)

Kindred Spirits’ next Green Martian release, Demoiselle, follows on from the superb Folies d’Antan in February 2015. Kevin Vega is called up for remix duty on this one which will definitely get the house juices flowing.

The Original Mix intros with a cool bright flavour filled with crispy hats and sharp percussions which are soon joined by a nice big chunky kick. Synth arps come through early on and set the scene for a melodic trek into smooth progressive house. The offset bass and accompanying deeper sounds provide the perfect backdrop for the melodies to slide effortlessly through the sound. A wonderfully upbeat sound that will do well in any set, just in time for Summer.

Fresh off the back of his last outing, The Gambler on Progez, Kevin Vega shows up at Green Martian for remix duty on Demoiselle. The remix itself delivers an infectious floor jam filled with super tight drums complete with intricate percussion patterns. On top of this we find a punchy kick that really dominates the sound with its well rounded edges and low end prowess. Rising arps cascade right through the sound as we are locked on to the groove, while on the break we are led deeper into the groove before getting slammed right back into the main track for the duration. A super smooth progressive house journey you will not want to miss.

KEVIN VEGA – THE GAMBLER (PROGREZ)

Progrez stalwart Kevin Vega returns with the fantastic three tracker entitled The Gambler. A big part of the Progrez journey, Kevin has consistently delivered the goods with his lush progressive house vibes. His last outing, Andromeda gained a lot of support across the board and since then he has racked up several top notch remixes for the likes of Dofamine and Airwave & DJ Fire. Always worth checking this guy out, he never disappoints.

The Gambler gets us on the move with a real nice punchy kick and mesmerizing percussions that lock you right into the groove. A wonderfully lush probing bass joins in and takes the track right into the deepest depths of progressive house. Sweeping pads form various layers and bring a melodic edge to the sound that captivates the mind. On the break a beautifully constructed kaleidoscope of sound takes over and you soon find yourself lost in this fantastic epic world. Another superb Kevin Vega cut that you will not want to miss.

The Wizard intros with a huge kick that pounds hard on the subs while subtle percussions begin to layer up alongside a rising synth and deep bass. You feel the intensity building as the track progresses with the bass staying firm on the low end. The break delves into a surreal soundscape with cool atmospheric sounds and a subtle synth before getting right back into the main groove for the duration and those pounding kicks once again. Top notch stuff, definitely one for the late night sessions.

The Preacherman takes us on another epic Kevin Vega journey, deep into the heart of progressive house grooves. A big chunky kick provides the intro and will give the bassbins a run for their money alongside that probing, powerful bassline. Bright crispy hats and some cool drum patterns let the rhythms loose as various strings rise up to combine into a spacey sequence. The break reveals a very cool sequence filled with a distant spoken vocal over some gritty, raw sounds that add superb textures to the track. Another highly effective track that would be a welcome addition in any progressive set.
