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.

PHAT TRAKTOR – CETTE NUIT (PROGREZ)

Phat Traktor continues his fine run of outstanding deep cuts with Cette Nuit. We last saw him back in the summer of 2014 with Negative which went down an absolute storm among many and we have no doubt this new effort will follow suit. Since then he has remixed Ecco’s Switch and his tracks have appeared on our Club Traxx – Dark & Deep 2 as well as a spot on Bonzai Basik Beats, lots more to come from this guy so stay tuned.

First up we have the title track, Cette Nuit. From the opening bars we instantly get drawn into a deep rooted groove filled with low end bass and cool percussions.

Sweeping pads crop up and bring a futuristic vibe as the infectious grooves continue to drive the track. A superb cut that will definitely turn a few heads.

La Criatura intros with a gritty beat as big chunky kicks are met with distorted percussions and rising pad. The track transitions into a much smoother flow as the distortions subside and the kicks get a nice rounded touch. Tech flavours run through the sound and are enhance by a brilliant robotic styled spoken vocal. As the layers build we are treated to a deep and pulsating bass that sets the track up beautifully. A tough and gritty workout that will definitely put fear into any sound system.

A deep and tech flavoured groove that will be a welcome addition in many sets no doubt.
