Cuban born Abdiel Quintana and Israeli born Roy Engel form the project Abi-Q & Raw-E. They have delved into all sorts of musical styles and continue to create unique sounds for us.
Fresh from their last outing “Liquid Disco Jam” on Green Martians “Mars Attacks Volume 2″ this Barcelona based duo gives us a quality prog, tech house vibe over a two track release and backed up with an impressive remix on Bonzai Progressive.
The original mix of the title track “12” opens with an almost tech vibe but quickly switches to a banging prog monster, deep basses and plenty of awesome FX help to create a solid groove, on the break we are treated to some cool, eerie melodies and then back into that awesome groove, huge big floor appeal on this one.
Very popular and regular remixing duo Manu Riga provide a more darker edged house vibe with their “Manu Riga’s The Number Is 12 Remix”, quality beats with a tribal feel and a really cool bassline, great vocal used also. The break takes a melodic approach with some nice sounds and coming back in with a bouncier groove, very impressive remix indeed.
Finally we have “Weekend” which quit simply is an absolute joy to listen to, pure tech house driven progressive groove, from the thudding kicks to the crisp percs and chugging bass to the sweeping synths this tune is such a tight production, massive massive sound here and one to watch for sure.
Yet another fine release from Bonzai Progressive with Abi-Q & Raw-E definitely on the up!
This release is exclusive on Beatport for two weeks.
