Eyes Wide Shut settles into a solid progressive vibe from the get go with a subtle rolling bassline, chunky kicks and a cool bending synth. A strikingly sharp siren rises and takes us into full on mode as the drums and percussions deliver a smooth rhythmic flow. Some fantastic sounds come through and bring an 80’s vibe alongside a superb contemporary melodic arp that rises and falls beautifully through the track.

Futurity sets off with a filtered kick which joined by a slicing hat that and some cool vocal sounds that pop up along the way. The kicks get a massive thump added as the track lifts off with its infectious groove. The rolling bass line becomes a main focus in the sound while a cool house atmosphere builds up in the background. Expertly tweaked filters keep the track bouncing along nicely as those one shot vocals add that urban vibe. Superb stuff that will be a welcome addition in your box.

We last saw Greek DJ and producer Steve back at the start of 2015 with a remix on Mindgamers’ The Preachers which gained a lot of support from all over.The Original Mix intros with a cinematic themed sequence filled with sweeping sounds and a thick probing bass. Cool staggered hats come through alongside an otherworldly string which leads us into nice chunky kicks and warm melancholic vocals. The track goes deeper with the bassline providing the deep groove alongside those stunning vocals and a super tight drum arrangement. Another wonderfully deep progressive cut from Steve that will definitely grab a lot of attention.

Dutch DJ and producer Jesper Mauerhoff debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two tracker, Eyes Wide Shut. Eyes Wide Shut settles into a solid progressive vibe from the get go with a subtle rolling bassline, chunky kicks and a cool bending synth. A strikingly sharp siren rises and takes us into full on mode as the drums and percussions deliver a smooth rhythmic flow. Some fantastic sounds come through and bring an 80’s vibe alongside a superb contemporary melodic arp that rises and falls beautifully through the track. A nice slice of progressive fodder that will do well in any set. Electric Gathering intros with a wonderful driving synth sound that binds perfectly with the punchy kicks. A round of very cool percussions builds up and delivers a flowing rhythm right throughout the track with a very subtle tribal element. The groove goes full on cosmic with the introduction of winding spacey themed synths and pads. A definite set builder and a must have track no doubt.
