CHANTOLA – DAYS GO BY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
May 15th, 2013
Henrik is back with another round of his mellowed out progressive vibes on this two tracker “Days Go By”. His last release “Another Day At The Dream Factory” done very well with support coming from many corners and top download stores featuring it heavily.
The title track intros with a nice thud on the kick and a warm pad sweeping through, subtle keys come in and the percussion starts to build up a cool flow on the rhythm. The strings gain slightly in intensity and the bassline adds a bouncy touch with some very cool pianos filling in the background. On the break we get an almost trancey feel with the synth chords ramping up the groove, very nice indeed.
“XTC” takes us deep into progressive vibes with a journey through a myriad of lush sounds, lots going on here and a perfect example of Henrik’s technical ability to be able to marry all these sounds while keeping the structure on point. Deep prog bassline with many different melodic sequences blending beautifully over a tight drum and percussion section. Elements of both house and trance are evident yet still offering a unique style, very well crafted and a joy to listen to.
