Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons returns to Green Martian with this stunning three tracker entitled ‘The View At 2 AU’. Nick is a veteran on the EDM scene with releases on some classic labels and remixing for top artists over many years. Most recently he delivered a solid remix on Blufeld’s ‘Huddlestone Arch’ as well as his own ‘The Machines Were Dreaming’ on LCD Recordings.
First up we have the superb ‘The View At 2 AU’ as it intros with subtle percussions alongside a warm rising pad and deep bass plucks. A monster kick soon takes control and the track is on its way. The grooves build steadily as those pads return as does the fantastic bubbling bass. The bass just oozes summer vibes and beautifully tweaked melodic sequences come through as the track evolves. On the break we see the melodies mature to the backdrop of a cool breaks pattern. The perfect fodder for the terraces this summer and definitely not to be missed.
Deepcry makes his Green Martian remix debut with his superb take on the original of The View At 2 AU. Deepcry has worked with many top artists over the years and has a string of releases on Morphosis Records. Here the remix intros with a nice punchy top heavy kick with a rising pad coming in from the back. The track gets into full swing with a superb driving bass that would have any floor jumping. A wonderfully melodic sequence plays out giving off a euphoric vibe that gets the goose bumps rising. A definite big hitter here that will keep the summer memories alive well into the Autumn and beyond.
‘Terminal Shock’ intros with a slowly fading in pad and subtle percussions. A cool, punchy kick joins in as bass notes begin to form. Nice and laidback progressive house grooves here that lock you in for the duration. The bass becomes much more prominent as its velvety texture lulls you into its groove. Subtle keys give off cool melodies as the FX in the background beautiful textures. After the break the track takes a very cool twist adding a grittier side to the sound. A must have track for the late night parties and will turn heads for sure.

Airwave continues his reign as progressive master to deliver another absolute stomper entitled Carre. His last outing with DJ Fire, Without Roots, is still enjoying high positions on various charts and playlists. DJing is still a big focus for Airwave and he is enjoying gigs and some very cool and exotic places so be sure to catch a glimpse if he comes your way. Backed up with two stunning remixes we are sure there is something for everyone here.
The Original Mix gives off a real deep progressive vibe which is evident right from the off as pounding kicks are joined by distant percussions and a deep droning bass sound. Various layers start to build and bring a steady flowing rhythm within a super tight arrangement. In perfect Airwave style you start to feel the intensity as pads begin to rise. Bright melodic flavours offer stark contrasts that work so well with darker elements. We end up locked in a beautifully constructed progressive groove and can only be described a simply sublime, top notch yet again and a definite must have.
Hailing out of Poland we have Monojoke up first on remix duty. This guy is a very much in demand artist due to his diverse range of skills which he utilises to deliver top quality every time he touches his own productions or remixes. He has seen a couple of remixes appear on our compilations in the past and we are delighted to see him grace these shores once more. The remix intros with a very cool display of percussive patterns as well as an ebbing and flowing synth. A large bass pluck is backed with a very cool rising arp that leads us up to the main track where a smooth punchy kick drives the groove. The main bass takes the track up a gear as it relentlessly delivers its powerful progressive force. On the break the synths take over delivering cool melodic phrases that match perfectly with that deep sub bass effect. A fantastic journey that you will not want to miss.
Rise and Fall delivers another top notch remix which we have come to expect given his recent efforts. A firm favourite among many we last saw him with his wonderful Seize The Day back in early summer this year. Here the remix intros with a nice punchy kick with subtle percussions littering the background alongside a sweeping pad. A warm bass pluck sets the tone and is soon joined by a much deeper bass which provides a solid platform. Short synth riffs are accompanied by cool FX as a hypnotic arp begins to rise. The break reveals a very cool display of pads that lead us back into the main groove for the remainder of this epic slice of prog, superb stuff.
Spanish DJ and producer Alex Vidal returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Pieces Of A Dream which comes with two fantastic remixes courtesy of DJ Fire and Blufeld. Alex always dishes out quality cuts as proved on his last outing Solar Citadel which was very well received among many.
The Original Mix sets a cool progressive mood with a nice mellow intro filled with wispy sounds and distant percussions. The drum section fades up to reveal a monster kick that just hits you right in the chest as it pounds out its groove. A truly deep progressive bassline ensues and drives the track beautifully as the crispy percussions keep the rhythm flowing. Cool synth stabs and brighter melodic flavours give a nice contrast as we are drawn into this hypnotising world. A top notch cut yet again which will be a big hitter in any set.
DJ Fire is up first to remix duty and yet again we see his skills shine beautifully. Jurgen has recently been enjoying much attention for his works with lots of features on top sites for Without Roots and his most recent track Kleine Nyo. The remix intros with a firm kick that packs a phat punch, this is joined by some very nice crispy, snappy percussions which build a solid rhythmic base. Very cool synth stabs lurk in the background as the mid section reveals some smooth riffs that have a hint of acidic flavour. Up front a monster bass dominates the groove and sits perfectly in the sound drawing you in completely. The track takes us on a truly sublime journey which you will definitely not want to miss.
Fresh off the back of his last track Threlkeld, Blufeld is up next on the remix with his superb effort. Some big news on the way from Blufeld with the hope of a new album imminent which we are excited about and cannot wait to hear. The remix intros with some rising percussions that lead to a huge chunky kick and droning bass combi that will get the floors pumping for sure. Warm sweeping pads begin to wash over the track beautifully before a sharp melodic synth comes into play. On the break the melodies take over and steer the track in a euphoric detour before slamming right back into the full on progressive monster that it is, an absolute stomper from Blufeld.
Kres and Paolo Camponuovo make their Piston debut with the stunning two tracker Oh Boy. Italian born Kres grew up messing around with midi cables and hardware samplers in his basement. He became attached to Hip Hop and vinyl before getting more into techno and house. He has a long list of releases across many labels and always delivers the goods. Paolo brings band playing experience to the track with some cool riffs on the saxophone and gives the track a lot of character.
Oh Boy takes us on a smooth and colourful journey through loungy deep hose grooves. The intro boasts a mish-mash of clangy percussions that paint a cool picture and work in perfect contrast to the deep, throbbing bass and chunky kicks. Melancholic pianos dish out their surreal melodic touches as a wonderful saxophone riff plays throughout and gives that jazzy lounge touch. Very cool stuff you will want in your collection for sure.
Sunshine takes us on a surreal deep house journey with many twists along the way. Big chunky kicks are joined by a deep droning bass synth that evolves brilliantly into a full on bassline pattern as cool, dark vocals come through. Various piano types can be heard through the layers which works perfectly in the sound and on the main break those pianos are keyed beautifully to reveal a very colourful melodic sequence. Top notch stuff that would be a definite must for those late night sessions.

DJ Fire goes solo for his next effort entitled Kleine Nyo. Jurgen has been a longstanding member of the Bonzai family for many years now and after a short break from producing he is back. His re-entry began a few years ago through collaborations with other producers, most notably his friend Airwave. Those two guys together always come up trumps as we all know, their most recent cut as a duo was on the stunning Without Roots, which climbed up many charts since its release. We are sure you will find this new solo work something special as we do here at HQ.
Kleine Nyo intros with a smooth percussive sequence as cool synth stabs go off in the background alongside a fading in deep vocal sample. A growling bassline materialises out of nowhere and gives off a raw organic flavour. Tech influences are crawling out of the sound beautifully as the track takes us on a relentless journey. The break throws up a cool pulsing bass note as the percussions filter back in with that brilliant vocal sample continuing. Top notch from Fire and a definite must in those boxes.
Next up we have the DJ Fire Remix which sets off with expertly crafted arrangements filled with percussions and a throbbing bass. Crispy hats get the rhythm flowing and a nice phat kick gets the party started. A prominent offset bass adds extra punch as the vocal samples make a return. Much more progressive orientated than the original with the basses playing a big role. Short synth stabs bring wonderful textured layers to the sound. Excellent stuff which is not to be missed.
It’s been over a year since we last saw Frangellico at Bonzai, now he is back with his superb Floating EP. Last time around we got a dosing of his progressive flavours on Manu Riga’s The Darkness Within which performed very well indeed. Since then he has seen his remixes appear on various compilations from the Bonzai stable as well as releases on various labels.
Floating intros with a nice and smooth percussion arrangement as a silky pad and soothing melody fade through. Punchy kicks soon follow and the journey begins into progressive utopia. A solid bassline walks through the track beautifully and gets the grooves flowing effortlessly. Melodic layers begin to shine as you get lost in the sound and on the break these melodies evolve with striking synths and wistful pads. Stunning display of progressive house that will be a feature among many no doubt.
Only For Now sets off in classic chunky kick and crispy hats fashion that creates a solid platform for the track. A deep throbbing sub bass comes through and takes over the sound as sweeping pads lurk in the background. Percussions begin to layer up giving off a smooth rhythmic flow taking us up to the main bass that packs a huge punch. Silky smooth plucks ooze sweet melodies which give cool contrasts and add an almost dreamy vibe. Another strong progressive house stomper that is sure to delight many.
Italian producer Marco Madia returns to Piston with his newest two track cut entitled 12 Seagulls EP. We last saw Marco back in early 2014 with his Dance Files EP which was well received with great support coming from all quarters.
First up is the title track 12 Seagulls with its real smooth deep house flavour. The intro boasts a nice and warm synth stab as the percussions form up bringing a flowing rhythm. The bass eases into the sound and provides a solid platform for this groovy ride which draws you in for the duration. The break throws up some cool piano sounds which takes the sound deeper still before kicking back into this fine slice of deep house, a must have track for sure.
21 Souls gently comes into existence with a lush bass tone to the backdrop of a tapping percussive instrument before a deep pulsating bass takes over alongside a snappy kick drum. Crispy hats create a nice flowing rhythm as cool house chords fade through. The track builds beautifully with those stabs becoming much more prominent while the bass relentlessly delivers its superb groove. A top notch cut that will be a welcome addition to any deep set.
Darouge shows up on Eyepatch with his superb two tracker Deep. Music. which delivers exactly what it says, pure and deep grooves. His last offering was over at Bonzai Basiks earlier this year with Bite The Curb. This guy knows how to get the floors pumping so sit back and enjoy this trek into the deeper side of house.
Deep. Music gets the blood pumping with its pulsing basses and a brilliant chunky kick combi. Subtle percussions provide a solid rhythm and sit perfectly in the sound. Cool deep house stabs bring a classic feeling which is the real heart of this track. The layers build brilliantly with various chord structures blending well with the addition of some very cool deep spoken vocals. The break throws up a bright melodic sequence which works very well with the deeper nature of the vibe. An absolute stomper that will get bodies moving no doubt.
Persuasion is up next and intros with a nice crispy hat and a fantastic low end kick that hits you right in the mid section. Layers begin to form up with the addition of a cool bass that comes from deep within and contrasting brighter synth hits. Nice and smooth solid rhythms keep the track flowing beautifully and on the break those brighter elements shine through and are joined by cool vocal samples. A wonderful listening experience you will not want to miss.
Gunther Robles returns to SRUR with the superb two tracker Secret Annexe EP. Gunther last appeared on remix duties for Gforty’s Sinful Soul EP and since then he has racked up a few of his own originals and remixes. Delighted to see him back at the helm for his full SRUR release.
First up we have Secret Annexe with its melancholic, dark tones which are manifested through a deep bass hit and low end chunky kicks. Cool percussions sit back before coming to the fore with crispy sharp hats and snappy claps. Synth pads start to rise as a prominent plucky bass takes centre stage with its acidic undertones. Those acid tones start to evolve and draw you into its grasp for the duration. Wonderful deep tech sounds that will no doubt be a feature in many sets.
The Raven goes right into full on mode from the off as punchy kicks are joined by rising pads and a deep sub bass alongside a plucked bass. The rhythm starts to boil as cool percussions are added to the mix. Manic arps that seem in disarray come to the fore and soon level out in intricate patterns that work so well. The track breaks with a dominate pad sequence to the backdrop of cool raven calls before we are thrust back into the full swing of the groove. Top notch stuff from Gunther that is not to be missed.
Antonio is back with another stunning cut on Progrez entitled Traveler which brings together his many years of experience in production and DJing. Antonio loves new digital technologies as well as classic sounds from analogue synths.. Back in April this year his I Believe In The Music EP hit the floors with lots of support and there is no doubt this new effort will be getting the same treatment.
First up is the delectable Traveler with its deep and dark tones running through the sound beautifully. Aside from a super tight drum arrangement we are treated to some stunning acid blips and squelches which add lots of analogue flavours to the groove. The bassline is the perfect companion as it trots alongside adding to the smooth rhythmic flow of the track. A deep droning synth rises up through the sound and brings those darker elements with the help of some cool synth hits. Hugely infectious groove here that will be a draw for many jocks no doubt.
Yari is up next and the intro gets the senses tingling with a nice deep bass sound with contrasting bright rhythmic hats and percussions overhead. The track settles into a smooth groove as nice chunky kicks come through alongside lush basses. As the track progresses you will find yourself locked in to the subtle hypnotic grooves. A fantastic track for the late night floors.
