Lightyears Away From Here intros with a powerful muffled kick drum that slowly filters in to unleash a huge punchy thump that becomes a solid backbone for the track. We’re soon met with some fine psy trance sounds as an industrial sized synth stab fades in with an intense vibe. In the background we find some very cool FX that create stunning textures and add to that intensity. Subtle melodies start to come through as the bass line lurks deep in the low end. On the break we get a taste of those melodies in full bloom as they combine to create a huge climactic experience before we get slammed back into full on mode. Another fine slice from the master who is ensuring that the trance sound is alive and kicking in 2015.

This one comes after two huge releases, namely Vega Shining on BP and the emotionally charged Sadness In Black And White on the mighty JOOF. An inspiration to us all, we look forward to more from this guy, but in the meantime play this one loud.

Give It To Me (I Need It) gets right down to business with a solid deep house groove filled with beautifully warm chords and a wonderful perfectly tweaked bassline. Up top we have a high string that sits over those warm chords as well as various FX that add great textures along the way. A classic styled vocal comes through and sets the groove alight. Tight drums filled with chunky kicks, crispy hats and snappy snares dish out cool rhythms as this super charged house cut gathers pace. A must have track for sure.

First up we have the title track Yes I Am which in short is a relentless slice of deep techy grooves with a probing bass that fills the sound beautifully. The track is somewhat minimal with a cool drum arrangement made up a punchy kick and shuffling hats with a few percussions to keep the rhythm loose. Throughout the track we are treated to a gritty vocal that delivers that classic house vibe while the music carries us along for the ride with a cool tech edge. Excellent stuff that will sit snugly into any set.

Our next Bonzai Basiks release – The Force – comes courtesy of a fantastic collaboration of artists featuring Belgian DJ and producer Van Czar, DJ and producer Dantiez Saunderson and UK songstress Ann Saunderson. Van continues to lead the way in deep techno grooves and his tracks are always powerful tools in the mix for many jocks. After he joined Dantiez on their back to back set at this year’s (2015) Legacy Festival, they decided to get together in the studio and soon after they started working on this fine cut. Over the last few years Dantiez has taken after his legendary father, Kevin Saunderson, and released quality cuts on several labels including Kevin’s own KMS. The guys then decided to employ the soulful, gospel-esque vocals of Dantiez’s mother, Ann. Back in 1992 Ann featured as backing vocals on the anthemic Pennies From Heaven by Inner City which was headed up by her husband Kevin, and went on to record several high profile tracks over the years. To keep it all in the family we get treated to a wonderful remix by the legend himself, Mr Kevin Saunderson who led the way in the early Detroit house and techno scene and gave the world some of the most memorable tunes ever with Inner City and others.
