Aiemo aka David Nicosia Longhi is gaining a lot of attention with Dreaming Eyes, harnessing the stunning vocal talent of Sandra Hakky, this lush melodic chilled out sound has gained over 250k views with some amazing positive feedback on Youtube.
This inspiring Dannish/Italian artist now living in Copenhagen, David has dabbled with deep, minimal psy trance but now focuses in on chillout lounge music with flowing melodies.
Such a relaxed vibe suitable for the beach or the lounge, the video features awesome snaps that match beautifully with the music. Creating a serene atmosphere you will find yourself drifting along with every note and wanting more.
As part of Aiemos Dreaming Eyes EP which is available on all major download portals and features other very talented female artists, this tune continues to draw in a lot of listeners.
Formed by Adriaan Baussens and Sven van Hove in 2004, this talented duo deliver quality progressive sounds. Having signed with Bonzai in 2010 things have been looking up and a slew of remixes followed. With an artist album scheduled for later in 2012 Manu Riga will go from strength to strength.
No Matter What is a classic progressive sound for the modern age with awesome remixes included in this release.
The original is a trancey affair with sweet melodies yet a dark progressive edge, a constant groove with a deep bassline and a haunting vox sample, very tight production as expected.
The awesome Moshic delivers his unique deep progressive house vibe and adds his ever present ethnic sounds to create a truly sublime piece of work which will for sure be on a lot of playlists.
Kintar & Rex produce a stunning take on the original with a huge sound full of progressive flavours, more chunky and grungy in places with an array of FX have added a whole new layer to the sound.
Another fine Bonzai Progressive release with early support and feedback from Sander Kleinenberg, Richie Hawtin, Markus Schulz, Claude Von Stroke, Gabriel Ananda, Franco Bianco, Sossa, Tyler Smith, Gare Mat K, Dema, Ken Liu, Tommi Bass, Jay Marshall, Nick & Danny Chatelain, DJ Samer, Mellow Fusion Radio Show, Clubflavour, Re-Think Radio, MK Tronic Radio Show, VolcanoRadio, Pulzar FM, Berlin FM, Diversions Radio Toronto, Flaix FM, Noice Podcast, Warm FM, Turntables24 Radio, Conecta FM, Via Sound Radio, Sirenium, Jacbri Radio Show, Proton Radio, Ibiza Global Radio, Flirt 101.3FM, Radio FDS, Afterhours Radio Show 99.1 FM and The Bass-Room Radio Show between many more…
Eyepatch continues to go from strength to strength, we’ve been able to capture another fine example of deep house pleasure.
Accatone is the alias of José Reis. He grew up listening to Detroit techno, Chicago house, deep, dub techno and later on to all kinds of world music. With a debut album gaining a lot of support from around the world Jose now gives us a sublime two tracker.
Bring starts off on a kind of dub trip breaking down into a simple yet effective piano chord structure with a cool vocal sample, tight bassline and great percussions tie this whole track together beautifully.
Everything is stripped back to bare minimal sounds with a great hypnotic bass and a raspy distorted vocal on a huge breakdown, tight production which shows real professionalism in music.
Early support and feedback comes from the likes of Sander Kleinenberg, Claude Von Stroke, Gabriel Ananda, Richie Hawtin, Nick & Danny Chatelain, Ken Liu, Merlyn Martin (Subdivisions Global Radio Show), Koma (Jacbri Radio Show/Proton Radio), Deep South Audio (Volcano Radio, Pulzar FM), Andreas Akratos (Re-Think Radio, Night Series), Riyaz Khan (Diversions Radio Toronto), Mikey Breaky (Flirt 101.3FM, Galway) and many more…
