VAN CZAR – RUMBA EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

The ever impressive Van Czar gets his techno groove on at Bonzai Basiks once again with his Rumba EP complete with two brilliant remixes. A truly gifted artist, Van devotes his time to music in many ways. His very successful Bonzai Basik Beats Spain, which can be heard on multiple internet radio stations, will have passed its 65th episode by the time of this release. On top of that he is also releasing material as Cysxe as well as various collaborations. Just recently he got a vinyl release on our Bonzai Worx Volume 5 series with Love Trip featuring Sugar Love. Still a lot more to come from this guy, so stay tuned.

The Original Mix intros with a nice, big punchy kick with a healthy dosing of claps that really get the rhythm flowing. The Techno just oozes out of the sound with sharp synth stabs joining forces with cool vocals. The rhythms keep with the title of the track and bring out that rumba-esque groove which ties in perfectly given Van’s African roots and his current Spanish residence. A nice mixture of cultures that has been captured beautifully in this driving Techno sound. A definite must have you won’t want to miss.

Fran Navaez returns to Basiks with his remix and really darkens the tones beautifully. His last appearance was with the fantastic Feeling back at the start of 2014 as well as a guest spot on Bonzai Basik Betas. On the remix a monster kick drum resides over the proceedings as crispy hats break through. A deep bass rattles right through the sound as it lurks on the low end. Sweeping FX litter the groove and give way to the superb synth hits that pop up all around. A tight drum arrangement ensures a solid groove that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

Onofrio Conte joins in on the remix duties with his superb slice. Onofrio has cropped up across various labels under the Bonzai umbrella including Sounds R Us Recordings, Eyepatch Recordings and Bonzai Basiks. His works are well renowned for their energetic vibes and we are never disappointed. Great to see him return to these shores and hope for much more in the future. The remix intros with a subdued kick drum as a throbbing, deep bassline takes control. Bright, crispy hats cut through the low frequencies like a knife providing a great contrast to the sound. Shuffling percussions begin to form up alongside a cool stab as that bassline dishes out its driving force. The break throws up a surreal pad sequence before we get thrust right back into the main sound for the duration. Another gem from Onofrio that will no doubt feature heavily in many sets.

BONZAI WORX – VOLUME 5 (BONZAI VINYL)

As vinyl continues its steady rise we are pleased to present our next vinyl release, Bonzai Worx Volume 5. After the success of previous wax releases we trawled through our catalogue and came up with four of the hottest and grooviest cuts to get the etching treatment. Tracks from Van Czar featuring Sugar Love, Ecco, Sa.Du and Alfredo Mena as well as a remix from Manuel Palmitesta have all been selected this time for their diverse ranges. Expect deep, groovy, sultry, edgy, gritty and downright banging tracks on this limited pressing.

Sa.Du’s Imaging Your Self gives off deep and sultry sounds as a provocative female vocal swamps the vibe. Cool rhythms are formed out of a tight drum arrangement with punchy kicks and sharp hats. The bassline gels everything together brilliantly and on the break a female vocal comes to life with a huge diva-esque chorus, top notch production in effect.

Ecco’s Switch gets the remix treatment from Bonzai debutant Manuel Palmitesta. The track intros with a punchy kick and classic percussion set up with an in your face hypnotic siren styled synth note that dominates the sound. A very subtle yet effective bass sits in the rear and binds the track together beautifully. On the break a techy element filters into the sound as the percussions keep the groove flowing before we slam right back into full swing with an air raid siren for good measure. Top notch stuff.

Alfredo Mena gives us his track The Scrawl with its full on techno vibes. A deep throbbing sub bass is joined by cool clipped kicks and a superb percussion line followed up with crispy clear hats. Cool vocal samples give the track a darker feel and makes this a strong favourite for the darker rooms. A big feature in the track is the expertly arranged percussion section, tight and to the point as various rhythms filter through alongside a more energetic secondary bass and a continuous metallic perc hit.

Van Czar joins forces with Sugar Love on Love Trip which intros with a tough bass sound and an enticing sultry vocal. The track settles into a full on Techno groove with punchy kicks and super crisp hats alongside that gritty edged bass. The vocals continue to lull you into their lustful grasp and adds a real dynamic contrast to the sound. A real powerful Techno slice yet again from Van and no doubt this one will see a lot of playtime.

VAN CZAR FEATURING SUGAR LOVE – LOVE TRIP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Van Czar’s newest cut enlists the sultry vocal talents of Sugar Love on his Love Trip EP which is backed by two fantastic remixes. July this year was his last outing with In Vino which received a lot of support. After a recent trip to ADE where he showcased Bonzai Basik Beats, Van continues to deliver the goods as well as running Bonzai Basik Beats Spain and his new radio show Delotux.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a tough bass sound and an enticing sultry vocal. The track settles into a full on Techno groove with punchy kicks and super crisp hats alongside that gritty edged bass. The vocals continue to lull you into their lustful grasp and adds a real dynamic contrast to the sound. As the track progresses the groove becomes tougher and the vocals become more sinister in nature as they are pitched down lower and lower. A real powerful Techno slice yet again from Van and no doubt this one will see a lot of playtime.

DJ and producer Josh Love debuts with Bonzai on remix duty. Josh has been around the scene for a long time now and has worked with some of the best in the industry. Here he turns up the heat and dishes out a top notch slice of pure driving Techno goodness. The intro sets off with some very cool punchy kicks as subtle percussions sit back. A simple yet effective note appears and paves the way for some raunchy vocal samples. The track begins to transform as the notes squelch and vocals become more prominent. The break lets loose with a full on erotic scene as the bass notes rise and burst back into full on Techno mode. A monster tune that will be a main feature among many for sure.

Fran Naveaz steps up for his remix and delivers another of his top quality cuts. His last outing was back in the summer with Feeling which saw great support. Here he takes the original by the horns with a classic punchy kick and accompanying percussions. The groove builds beautifully with the introduction of a tight drum arrangement and those fantastic vocal shots. A deep and throbbing bass shores up the rear and beefs up those kicks brilliantly. Various FX litter the groove as the vocals become much more prominent. The track takes a much tougher stance with the sounds and on the break that big stab really takes control. A full on driving Techno groove that will appeal to many.
