AUDIO NOIR – REVELATION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
August 21st, 2013
Audio Noir is back with another fine slice of progressive for our listening pleasure. “Revelation” comes backed up with a slew of fantastic remixes.
The Original Vox On mix intros with a heavy shuffle type groove on the percussion and drum arrangements. This soon delves into the deep recesses of progressive house as the bassline draws you in, very well crafted track with a diverse range of sounds to keep the ear trained. Subtle melodies are a cool contrast to the overall vibe and on the break an unexpected vocal comes through. Top notch track with a pulsating rhythmic groove.
Veteran Gai Barone steps up to remix duty with his Vox On Wax Remix. Gai is fresh off the back of a wonderful remix for Manu Riga & Nico Parisi’s track “Reborn” and is currently working on new material also. As usual we are treated to a masterclass in progressive vibes from Gai with a sound drenched in deep grooves. A subtle intro builds and builds up to a full flowing hypnotic rhythm with a host of FX doing a great job as the layers continue to build. The break releases a myriad of synths where you can lose yourself completely. Monster of a tune here that will be a perfect fit in many sets!
Italian DJ and producer Matteo Monero is next up on the remix. Matteo is a stalwart in the progressive scene having appeared on top labels like Mystique Music, Sudam and Baroque alongside the likes of Kintar and Loquai. Here he applies his own brand of progressive house and he does it in style. Solid beats create a steady flowing rhythm right from the off with FX adding texture to the sound. The percussions find their way into the track with crisp, sharp hats standing out. A deep bassline lingers in the depths while sweeping pads keep things moving alongside a much more prominent vocal, top quality stuff!
Melbourne based Narel beefs up the groove with his remix. Tougher edged vibe here with the beats and tight arrangements shining through. The deep bassline provides a well rounded groove which will have many floors shaking. Wonderful gated strings come through with the vocal matching up very well with the sound. The break winds things right down before powering back into full swing with an amazing melodic arp, very hard to keep still with this one, the floors are gonna love it.
Near the end we have Yuriy From Russia on the remix. Yuriy has just released two stunning tracks through our Progrez and Bonzai Progressive imprint and is shaping up to be a top draw in the progressive world. Here he adds a much more melodic composition with the bassline serving up some sweet sounds, the vocal works extremely well in this context and the myriad of sounds in the background fill the spaces brilliantly. Superb piano sequences are dotted throughout the track which really gives off a feeling good vibe overall, top quality!
To wrap the pack up the Original Vox Off mix is an added extra, for those who want to lose the vocal then this is for you.
