Ivan returns to Piston with I Don’t Remember My Synth which is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Don’t Stop The Groove Man back in March 2014. We have no doubt that this two tracker will garner lots of support as his previous outings have.
I Don’t Remember My Synth intros with a cool kick and an ever increasing array of percussions that really set the rhythm loose. Smooth house chords bring a classy vibe to the sound as they swirl around with a warm clarity. Vocal samples are the perfect addition as they bring a lot of character and add cool textures. The big draw here has gotta be that bassline, it just dances through the sound beautifully, picking you up and carrying you along its groovy journey. As the track meanders along the layers continue to build on the deep house grooves, bright strings and synth hits create a fantastic myriad of sound making this a track not to be missed.
Deep Penetration is up next and brings a very cool percussion arrangement alongside soft keys and a harsh bass pluck that gives some very cool contrasts. A big heavy hitting chunky kick soon follows and we are set into a brilliant groovy workout. A deep sub bass is on hand to accompany those bass plucks and does a great job shoring up the groove. Vocal samples litter the sound as big synths fade into the background. The break reveals cool melodies that are borne out of a stark, raw analogue styled synth which blends so beautifully into the sound. A deep and penetrating track that will turn a few heads for sure.
TFC is back, this time on our Green Martian imprint with My Superman. His first outing was on Bonzai Progressive with Joey.L back in the summer and gained lots of support.
First up we have the Original Mix of My Superman which intros with a smooth round of percussions that get the rhythmic juices flowing right from the off. A deep resonating sub bass rattles the sound before a tight punchy kick comes through. Rising FX takes us into the first break where a wonderful melodic sequence brightens up the groove with the help of a sumptuous vocal that captivates the mind with its tale of wonder. A euphoric feeling floats over the whole sound in the most beautiful way while retaining a progressive house groove. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.
Swiss producer Louis Desero returns to Green Martian with an outstanding remix on My Superman. We last saw Louis in July with his Oriental Breeze which enjoyed a great response across the board. Here he intros the remix with a beautifully melodic sequence as a touch of melancholy creeps in through the vocal. Sweeping pads and arps fade away and reveal a brilliant bassline that meanders through the sound perfectly. Nice chunky kicks set the rhythms loose as percussive elements find their way. Stunning melodies come back into the sound with a vengeance as the vocal delivers its sweet nothings. A true progressive vibe lies at the heart of the track and will definitely make this a must have in any set.
Next up we have the Original Mix of Running Away with its big and brash synths that give it a big room appeal. The intro boasts those big synths that set the tone perfectly for the track and they are soon joined by punchy kicks and a deep throbbing bass that just sits at the low end allowing the synths to take the glory. The track offers up a truly awesome melodic display through big synth sequences that will surely have the floors pumping. On the break the synths subside a little to reveal a nice and simple vocal strain that ties the melodies up beautifully. Very cool uplifting sound that will appeal to many and will no doubt gain a lot of attention.
Digital Department serve up the remix for Running Away and do a great job for sure. We last saw Digital Department in June this year with You Put A Spell featuring Cara Leigh, and no doubt this time around we will be treated to more of the same top quality vibes. The intro sets off with a sharp clap and a rising pads that give way to a filtering kick that turns into a superb pounding thump. Those pads continue to formulate a surreal vibe and really dig deep into your mind. Out of the blue the most warmest bass takes over and adds a beautiful quality to the sound. On the break the melodies shine alongside the brilliant vocals and are complimented with a big break beat pattern. This is a monster of a track that will leave you wanting more with every listen, not to be missed.
A welcome return to Basiks for Lucio with this two tracker 2Basics EP. Lucio’s last outing, Let’s Go, back in the summer was well received and we are sure this newest cut will follow suit.
First up is Basic A which takes us into the proverbial rabbit hole of deep techno as a myriad of sounds converge onto our senses with merciless gusto. Solid, well constructed beats sit over a superb pulsating bass that seems to go on forever and ever. The break is where the track takes a surreal turn, cascading sounds and FX are met with fading arps which give off a space vibe. You find yourself totally hooked in here as these intricate patterns play havoc with your imagination. A definite must have track which will not disappoint.
Basic B goes deeper with a harsh, raw groove that etches itself into your brain. Big chunky kicks are joined by crispy percussions that keep time in a solid rhythmic vibe. A fantastic deep throbbing bass comes through and leads us to the break where a cacophony of spaced out sounds multiply as the layers build. Wonderfully crafted FX and synth patterns are brought together in a mind blowing sequence that locks you in for the duration. Superb, sublime and simply stunning stuff you will not want to miss.
Ferdas Digital is a young, up and coming producer who is making a name for himself in the Deep House, Tech House scene. Here he makes his debut on Progrez with the fantastic four track, Sand Candy EP. He boasts a ton of releases on†prestigious labels including Mandelstam Music, System Recordings, Divine Techno Records and Baroque Records to name a few. Working alongside notable vocalists such as Marcie and Ange, Ferdas Digital crafts deep and moody Techno inspired tracks guaranteed to find a place in the virtual record bag of many DJ’s.
Sand Candy kicks off this EP with a smooth deep and grooving vibe. The intro is filled with a mixture of percussions that set the rhythmic tone of the track and are joined by a nice punchy kick that will get feet stomping. The big hitter here is a deep pulsating bassline that takes over the track and brings a deep raw vibe to the sound. The superb percussion and drum arrangements stand out well as they keep the juices flowing resulting in a deep tech monster that will turn a few heads for sure.
Little Fix intros with some very cool effected percussions that give off an organic vibe. This soft arrangement is broken by a monstrous bassy kick that dominates the sound. Cool FX work takes us into the main groove as a throbbing bass joins the party. The overall sound gives off a spacious vibe that gets filled up brilliantly by the bass and those kicks. A deep and tech flavoured groove that will be a welcome addition in many sets no doubt.
The strangely titled Mooooumimi is up next and intros with a wonderful quirky array of sounds that blend beautifully to give a rhythmic vibe that builds and builds as the track progresses. A somewhat muted kick has a great impact on the sound while allowing those percussions to stand out. Again we see Ferdas Digital apply a superb bass to his sound, hypnotically rich and warm grooves hold up the sound perfectly with a deep techy house consistency. Cool chord stabs litter the arrangement in all the right places and keeps us locked on for the duration. Top notch yet again.
The tech fuelled vibes of Desman is up next and gets going with a very cool deep thumping kick with a sprinkling of bass tones thrown in to beef it up even more. Subtle percussion patterns come through and hold back allowing this bass vibe to rule the sound. Brighter hats and claps soon follow that unleash a superb flowing rhythmic vibe. A truly relentless display of bass driven tech that will definitely be a featured track among many jocks.

Rick Pier O’Neil debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the wonderful two tracker Swim Deep. French native Rick started DJing at just 14 years old, at 16 he already became a sound engineer and built his first home studio. He quickly gained a reputation as a talented artist and travelled to the US where he became embedded into the music scene there. He set up two record labels, Pro Records and Garbage Records, tracks from these labels have been hammered by top jocks all over the world. We are delighted to have him on board with much more to come in the future.
First is the title track Swim Deep which intros with a monster kick full of low end subs that will have the bassbins quivering. Crispy sharp claps lead into a layering of percussions that holds the steady rhythmic flow as grungy synths and FX sweep by. The bassline starts to creep up through the sound and settles into a full on driving tough edged progressive groove. The break unleashes a stunning atmospheric sequence where euphoric melodies take over with hair raising effect before slamming back into the main groove. Proper deep progressive vibes that packs a huge punch here and sure to grab a lot of attention.
Arty Grain sets off with a cool bass led intro with shuffling hats and claps over the top. Big chunky kicks soon follow and the tight drum arrangements gets us on our way. Cool melodic synths and pads rise up through the sound and sweep across the groove beautifully. A subtle yet highly effective bass sits down below paving the way for the FX and synths to do their thing. The break offers up a truly awe inspiring cacophony of rich pads and lush strings that come together to deliver a very tough sequence that will have the goosebumps on the rise. A solid progressive workout that will be a big hit in many of the deeper sets.
Javi Alvado & THC aka Victor Alvado make their Piston debuts with the superb two track, Brooklyn Tales EP. The guys started to DJ together back in 2009 and have went on to perform at top venues across Europe including placed like the Plastik Beach Club in Ibiza. In 2012 they started producing together and have amassed many releases across various labels. Their style is a cross between Tech House, Deep House and Techno which makes for some diverse results. They currently run A&R on Ultradrum Records.
First up is the title track Brooklyn Tales with its classic intro, solid kicks and nice crispy hats with sharp claps soon following, this gets the rhythm flowing beautifully and sets us up for a wonderful dancing experience. Old school styled synth stabs are the mainstay here and bring an edge to the track allowing memories of the heady days to surface. At the low end a raw sub bass lurks menacingly yet holds back enough to let the stabs run free and dominate the sound. Cool vocal samples give the track a lot of character making this a definite must have.
Grip Me intros with a nice punchy kick and cool percussion pattern that become infectious as the rhythm builds. Excellent stabbing synths filter through and are joined by cool vocal samples. The bass lets loose with a fathomless sub tone aimed to get you right in the chest with its pulsating groove. The big hitter though are the very cool synths and keys that bring that true house vibe to the sound with a fresh appeal. Superb stuff here that will gain a lot of attention for sure.
DARK SOUL PROJECT & MATHOV FEATURING FE MALEFIZ – AIN’T NO MELODIES LEFT FOR ME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
Dark Soul Project & Mathov enlist the stunning vocals of Fe Malefiz on the superb Ain’t No Melodies Left For Me which comes backed up with three fantastic remixes. Dark Soul Project marks his full debuts on Bonzai after his track Feels Like Heaven featured on our Club Traxx Progressive House compilation. He brings a wealth of talents to the table as his impressive back catalogue will attest. Mathov returns after his highly regarded Dark Activity was released in early November with support pouring in from all quarters. Since leaving uplifting trance behind he is definitely causing a stir in the progressive world with his smooth grooves. German singer Fe Malefiz provides the vocals for this release and it’s clear why she has been chosen as you will find out. Fe has worked with many artists over the years including Martin Merkel among others.
First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a cool drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks, sharp hats and rhythmic percussions. The track breaks to reveal a lush bass that sits perfectly within the groove and becomes the mainstay of the track. We get our first glimpse of the vocal here with its haunting tones and melodic phrases. The groove settles in with a strong progressive edge that will keep the heads nodding. The main break unleashes the vocal as it sweeps throughout before the Bjork-esque song comes through just at the right time to round up this absolute stunner of a track. A definite must have.
On remix duty we have Tallinn’s own Zas & Sanze aka Mindgamers. We haven’t seen the guys for a while as they have been busy with DJing and other projects, but we know they will be unleashing their latest works soon which we are all excited about. Here the guys do their thing and they do it well as always. Tight progressive vibes right from the off, muted kicks are joined by a fading in bass alongside cool FX. The kicks transform into chunky hits as the bass warms to become a lush grooving sequence. Fe’s vocal comes through beautifully here and blends so perfectly with the sounds around it. The groove is captivating as it lulls you into its grip with the help of sharp melodic sequences that add character and contrast to the sound. Another fine offering from the guys and sure to be a main feature in many sets.
Kintar returns for remix duty here at Bonzai Progressive with his unique blend of prog house that we know and love. DJing is a big part of his career, playing all over the world, you’d think he wouldn’t have the time for producing but he finds the time and always gets it done with great results. Here he intros the track with a fantastic low end kick, crispy hats and snappy claps. A deep resonating bassline shores up the rear as the layers build bringing surreal sweeping pads that lead up to some cool, subtle melodic flavours. The vocal is used sparingly with great effect as the anticipation builds with the help of an intense piano chord. Wonderful stuff out of Argentina and a track you have got to have.
Audio Noir never stops, he relentlessly churns out top quality productions and remixes to the delight of many. His most recent stint was Reworked Volume 2 from his album Almost Famous which have been getting fantastic support from many quarters. Much more to come out of Australia which we always look forward to. Here he gives us his Rekonstruction mix which takes the tempo back a bit, getting into a more laidback vibe. The intro is a wonderful cacophony of glitched FX and atmospheric sequences which combine beautifully before a superb warm bass breaks things up and provides that almost downtempo quality. The kicks sit mid range and allow you to become immersed in their beat while cool crispy hats bring a rhythmic flow to the sound. The vocal keeps the track firmly on course with its wonderfully haunting and rich tones. Subtle melodies play out as you become hypnotized by this sublime progressive groove. Yet again we get hooked by an Audio Noir cut, not to be missed.
