Italian born technoist Carlo Micali aka Kenny Dahl brings his brand of techno to the Bonzai Basiks stable.
Having become hooked on house music from the age of 11 in 1991, he knew he wanted to be a DJ and play in all the Italian clubs. By 1999 he had discovered the sound of Techno and was soon performing in the top spots all over Italy. Not long after this he got into music production on his PC, Carlo has great passion for music and sound and he is now working as a sound engineer.
Here we have a minimal slice of techno goodnesss backed up with a quality remix.
“Telecommander” is an all out stripped down minimal journey through an almost tribal techno sound, plenty of ethnic percussions and an elasticated constant synth sound that starts to filter as the track goes on, an all round tight production that will create a buzz on any floor.
On the remix we have the Ultimate Breakers with their beefed up tech house joint. Real cool percussion at different pitches over a thumping kick drum and a proper deep bassline, still retains the almost minimal feel of the original but really does turn up the drive.
Next up on Creamminal is Belgian producer and DJ, Ugur Yurt. Ugur has been passionate about music an early age having started to play tapes to his friends at age 11. This passion continues to this day with releases on many techno and house labels including Labyrinth Music, Toxicated Beats and more. Ugur also takes to the decks at loads of parties across Europe and has also graced the booth at Tomorrowland! Today we have his newest release “What Is House”, pure techno driven beats at their best.
First up is the title track “What Is House”, very minimal, solid techno groove, tight percussions and a constant throbbing bass, heavily effected vox samples dominate the break and beyond giving this a more sinister feeling, definitely a tune for the late night darker rooms where the full extent of a tune like this can be experienced.
“Peacock” definitely ruffles it’s feathers and stands proud, upbeat techno vibe on this and quicker tempo gives this feeling. Heavy thick bass and a hypnotic percussion leads up to a wide expanding synth line, short stop for the break and then straight back into this awesome groove!
Next up is “Talking Truss”, slightly more house feel on this with a hint of techno, cool retro vibe is also evident in the hook. Real toe tapping stuff with the drums and bass working well together to provide a steady rhythm, real pro sound on this and we can see this one getting the crowds moving!
“Feromon” is the final track on this amazing EP, the tide turns yet again with a tech-house-prog hybrid. This track has everything, chugging basses, tight thick drums, crisp sharp hats and a groove that is for sure gonna make you move, very impressive stuff from Ugur on this track.
7even is one of the most important DJ’s and producers of the new Spanish tech house scene.
His trademark is groove and funk which can be heard in all of his productions.
As a music coordinator at Loca FM Radio Station in Andalusia, he’s more integrated in the Spanish dance scene.
7even drops a strong massive tribal tech house track with hypnotizing vocals which goes perfectly along with the bass line. The remix support is from Istanbul’s finest, Goksel Vancin.
This time AU Black brings us an Ultra-Deep Single from Joao Martins.
The original mix is a melodic and technoish track with a lot of acid and detroit influences. The drums are from TR909 as usual from most of our crew.
The other mix is a completely different path, Fragoso brough the original concept into an empty space and re-build it since the beginning. It’s a pure detroitish dub techno track with a lot of space and ambience. The original is more peak time track. Fragoso’s one is for sure an after-hour track.
New installment in the Pure Chillz series comes with original tracks and remixes from Magitman, Placid Larry, Michele Cecchi, Twins In Mind, Alexander Dancaless, Suburban Dreams, Aiemo, Miika Kuisma, Jane Maximova, Fushe, Ed Lee, Corrado Bucci, Parafernalia, LaboRoss, Eddie M, Manu Riga, Suburban Dream, Red Avenue, Graphite and Morpheus 7 vs Nale.

Aiemo aka David Nicosia Longhi takes a detour from his usual chilled out, ambient grooves to deliver a stunning piece of deep tech house. David’s talents shine through with his ability to jump from one genre to the next and he always puts out top notch quality. His latest effort on Eyepatch “Too Many Bubbles” comes with a superb remix from Accatone.
The original mix is a cool laid back affair with lots of deep house and a bit of tech thrown in, nice subtle synth intros the tune with the drums and a thick chunky bass following suit. The delayed piano stands out in this track and adds that deep flavour, some amazing percussions keeps the groove in check.
Portuguese remixer Accatone reworks the original in majestic fashion, retaining the deep vibe while adding in the funk, well crafted instruments slip and slide around this track and keeps up a constant groove, cool FX on the sounds also. Subtle break with a high pitched string and then back into that solid groove, perfect!
A welcome return to Bonzai Elemental for Fushe with his new pure chilled 2 tracker “Amnesia”. After his well received last release “Saxophoria” we are treated to another trip into the world of blissed out sounds.
Krygystan born composer Fushe is turning heads in the chillout world with his cool downtempo lounge vibes. With a couple of releases on Bonzai Elemental and featuring on the “Pure Chillz” compilation we continue to get locked in to these smooth grooves.
First up is the title track “Amnesia”, beautiful sweeping pads and sweet melodic plucked notes open up this track, tight kicks and crisp hats come in and settle down into an awesome chilled out ride. When the melody takes over your mind is transported far away in thoughts, brilliant.
“Chillses” has a very spacey feel to it with its high pitched notes and almost machine like sounds, a beautiful vox pad sits nicely in the background and ties up the melodies very well.
Yet another fine chilled out release for the very popular Bonzai Elemental imprint.

“Yang” is the name of our newest EP from our family member Luis Bravo. After the sucess of “Today” EP, Luis is back with two ground breaking original tracks. The Original Mix of “Yang” is a great representation of what he do best: Deep and hypnotic atmosphere, a powerfull groove some small touch of funk here and there and simplicity at his most perfect state! On the other hand we have “Urban Sailor”, a deep tech house track that will delight the most exquisit dancefloors! A Strong groove, delicated rhode chords and a “loopy” vocal that will be around your head for the next few hours. And at last but not least, we are proud to have with us Mike Kings again! The last time he released at Monog, his remix of Joal “Tones and Stuff” was reviewed on Dance TV Show and received a lot of very good feedbacks around the world! Just listen and see for your self what I’m talking about.
Dutch producer and remix wizard returns to Bonzai Basiks with a superb three track EP filled to the brim with awesome tech vibes.
First up we have the title track “Noah”, kicking off in a kind of funky vibe with a cool synth stab, the tech influences build up and stomp hard by the time the tune breaks, gritty synth and sharp hats prevail and kicks back in with a vengeance bringing with it a huge hard edged sound, massive tune that will get the floors pumping!
“New Rank” is a more minimal approach to the tech sound, big focus on the drum arrangement and percussions, lots of FX sweep by and on the break we get a glimpse of a really cool synth line with a heavy filtered vocal talking about house, big build up kicks in to a serious tight groove, massive sound!
Finally we have “Love, Honor And Dance’ (12 O’Clock Mix)”, again quite minimal with some awesome percussion work and a nice chunky kick, the track moves along at a cool steady pace and then some brilliant sound manipulation occurs, amazing production skills.
