Our next SRUR release comes from the masterful Ozan Kanik with Adults Only and comes backed up with a superb remix from Gforty.
The Original Mix intros with a massive punchy kick with subtle hats keeping the rhythms flowing. Ozan definitely had Techno in mind with this one as the monster bass will testify, the bass dominates throughout with a merciless pulsating groove that will knock you off your feet. The break is even less forgiving as a cool percussion sequence comes into play as the bass thunders on. A monster sound that will feature on many sets for sure.
Gforty takes the bull by the horns and turns out an absolute stomper. Bug chunky kicks and deep throbbing basses take the track to full effect from the off. A very cool hat sequence brings a strong rhythmic section that keeps the track flowing alongside some cool vocal samples. A top notch cut destined for those darker techno rooms.
2014 has been a very productive year so far for Matan with his string of releases through Bonzai Progressive. Aim To The Moon continues this successful run and is the follow up to the popular Fabulous which gained great support across the board.
The title track Aim To The Moon sets us off with a wonderful energetic vibe that can be felt straight away. Big punchy kicks and an upbeat percussion section makes for a cool driving rhythmic flow and takes us up to the star of the show, the bassline. The bassline sits in the perfect spot within the sound, its lush tones will draw you in and hold you for the duration forcing you to move your body. Smooth textured layers bring out cool synth licks and on the break we are treated to a fantastic pad sequence before getting right back into the mix. A truly progressive groove here that will be a top pick among many for sure.
Hidden Landscape intros with a very cool percussion sequence that builds smoothly generating a nice rhythmic groove. Well rounded kicks soon follow and are joined by a superb dancing bassline that produces so much groovy colours you will have no choice but to shake that ass. Cool synths provide contrasting brighter displays and these marry perfectly with the vocals that add lots of character to the sound. Another stunning slice that will be a most welcome addition to any set.
French DJ and producer Mathov aka Mathieu Meyer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime three tracker Dark Activity. A lover of ethnic percussions Mathov has been inspired by and worked with producers such as Airwave, Kintar, Dark Soul Project and Moshic. He recently left behind Uplifting Trance and decided to take his radioshow on di.fm in a more Progressive Psytrance direction. Great to have him on board and we’re sure he will fit right in at Bonzai.
First up we have Dark Activity which intros with a sublime tribalistic percussion arrangement alongside a deep, dark growling bass synth that captivates the mind instantly. A nice and smooth drum section keeps the rhythms flowing but the big hitter is the monster bassline and ethnic stringed plucks which offer lots of contrasts. Those tribal drums really take on hypnotic traits as you get lost in this wonderfully deep progressive slice, top notch.
Gasparyan smacks you right in the face from the off with its energetically charged drum charged arrangement filled with wonderfully crafted percussion patterns. A warm, lush bass comes through bringing stunning depth to the sound and soon you will be gripped by its power. Striking synths and pads bring a subtle melodic flavour and are balanced beautifully with the darker nature of the sound. A real pumping progressive monster that will be a firm favourite no doubt.
Perception intros with a wonderful deep pad sequence filled with lush bass tones and hair raising bright pitches. The chunky kicks make for a cool breaks arrangement as deeper basses begin to form up at the backend. Big synths tease throughout and you find yourself wanting them to burst out. A highly infectious groove here that will turn a few heads for sure.
Manchester based DJ and producer Wrighty debuts on Piston with Drop The Bass. Wrighty has been around the scene for a while now and boasts a very impressive back catalogue which includes originals and remixes on labels like Digital-Muzik and Bedroom Muzik. He delves into Deep and Tech House and here we get a fine example of his skills.
Drop The Bass intros with a classic punchy kick and sharp hat combo that sets the rhythms off smoothly. Rich pads and a very cool synth riff fade through and take us up to the monster bass that really gets the grooves flowing in the track with its raw analogue sound. Classic vocal samples add cool character to the track and will be easily recognisable. The break brings those pads and synths back with the vocal samples being the dominant force before we get slammed right back into this relentless groove. Top notch cut and not to be missed.
Can You Feel It gives off an energetic vibe from the get go with pounding kicks and rhythmic percussions. The beats fade to reveal a dark bassline as an eerie pad rises before the bass takes over and settles us into this solid groove. Very cool and perfectly tweaked synth stabs give a retro feel to the sound which is enhanced by vocal samples on the break. An absolute slamming track that will no doubt be a feature on many sets.
Ego Progressus returns with another of his stunningly deep and tough progressive workouts in this two tracker entitled The Bow Tie. We last saw him with The Broken Circle earlier this year and no doubt we’ll be in for another real treat.
First up we have The Bow Tie which sets its dark tones right from the off as deep basses permeate through the speakers with shuddering effect. Snappy kicks lie in cool contrasts with the bass and are joined by subtle percussions to provide a steady rhythm. Lots of colour and textures can be found within the sound as a myriad of expert FX paint this dark progressive picture.
Not For Horses Song intros with a nice punchy kick that is joined by a very cool percussive arrangement to the backdrop of a sinister deep pad. Eerie vocal samples come through early on and give you a sense of what’s to come as the layers build a dark and surreal groove. A wonderfully rich bass gives the track a boost and carries the dark element forward beautifully. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

Since Phi Phi & Airwave got together in the studio they have pumped out some top quality cuts and today is no exception. Finesse comes with three superb remixes and promises to be a firm favourite among many for sure.
First up the Original Mix gets right down to business with a fantastic kick that hits the spot perfectly with its snappy punch. A smooth rolling bass lurks in the background waiting to pounce as the rhythms form up with the help of crispy hats and percussions. The bass comes to the fore as the intensity around the vibe builds taking us to a short break before we settle back into this relentless driving progressive groove, a definite must have.
Athens based DJ and producer John Tsamis returns to remix duty after his debut remix back in July this year on Steve Sai’s Stardust. On the remix John pulls out all the stops and takes the track deep into the progressive abyss. A cool rhythmic percussion pattern and beautifully crafted kicks set the track on course as a lush, deep bass holds up the low end. The break throws up a sublime drum and FX sequence with selection of various instruments bringing contrasts to the almost tribal nature of the sound. Superb stuff yet again from John and one for those darker rooms out there.
Hady Tarek joins the remix roster and comes out all guns blazing with a fantastic punchy kick and sharp hat combo that really gets the track moving. As if that wasn’t enough he ramps things up a gear with a wonderfully balanced bouncing bassline that will get any ass movin’. A short break throws up cool synth riffs with a touch of melodies that will keep your ears trained. Nicely paced grooves and superb arrangements will make this a definite go to tune for many jocks.
Australia’s finest Audio Noir is up next with another of his surreal remixes that always gets those progressive juices flowing. Having just released his first studio album, Almost Famous, which has already been given the remix treatment, we eagerly await some new material as it is always an exciting time. For now we will indulge in Another Audio Noir Trip which intros with a very cool vox pad that grips you immediately. A smooth understated kick gets the track moving as subtle hats and percussions begin to form cool rhythms. The deep rooted basses do a great job shoring up the low end and take on a hypnotic trait that locks you in for the ride. A truly spectacular arrangement that will see a lot of playtime for sure.
Bonetti is back with his long awaited follow up to My House Of Neglect. His Rupture EP comes with dancey deep house in mind and includes a fantastic remix from Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax. Since his last outing Bonetti has appeared on numerous compilations and featured on many sets, still one to watch for the future.
First up is Rupture and from here we get right into the groove with this floor friendly cut. The intro boasts a classic punchy kick and crispy hat combo with a cool vocal sample coming through. After a short break the bassline takes over and ramps up the groove brilliantly and is soon joined by some smooth chords. Cool vocal snippets keep the track moving nicely and sit well among the tight arrangement. A highly infectious track that will burn up many floors no doubt.
Iban Montoro & Jazzman Wax step up for remix duty and really hits the spot. Their last track Let It performed very well with features on top websites and plays in many sets. Here they get to grips with their remix of Rupture. A nice and subtle percussive intro leads in to a monster kick that packs a huge punch. Rhythmic percussions begin to form up and get the groove flowing nicely alongside some distant vocal FX. The bassline dominates as it delivers its pulsating groove alongside some very cool deep chords. The break reveals more of those vocals as a subtle acid type line lurks around before we get slammed back to the main sound for the duration. Top notch remix and definitely not to be missed.
Body & Soul is up next and intros with a superb punchy kick and sharp hat combo. Deep lush chords soon make their way through and bring that smooth house flavour to the sound as a wonderfully deep bass provides a solid pulsating groove. A short break reveals some very cool vocal samples that add cool textures to the sound. Nice and solid cut that will be a definite must for the dancefloors.
It’s been almost a year since we last saw Rishi K. over at Green Martian HQ and we are delighted to see he is back with another plunder in his progressive house world. His latest two tracker Black Ice is the long awaited follow up to Inflection Point from November 2013 and we have no doubt this latest offering will be just as stunning.
First up we have the title track Black Ice that sets off with very cool and classic styled punchy kick and hat combo. Smooth housey chord stabs ease their way into the sound alongside a colourful vocal sample. We get right into the track proper after a smooth rising pad transition takes us to the upbeat bassline that dominates the sound so well. The break reveals a smooth piano sequence before a massive kick roll thrusts us back into the main groove for the duration. A hugely impressive slice of prog house that is a definite must have.
Falling awake intros with a cool punchy kick and offset hat combo as various percussions layer up on top. A very cool synth riff comes in early on alongside some vocal FX before we get a taste of the powerful bassline. The bassline will get asses shakin on the floors as it delivers its groovy workout. Subtle piano sequences filter through and marry well with the synth arps which bring a melodic flavour. Top notch stuff from Rishi and a track you will not want to miss.
