CHANTOLA – MAKE IT HAPPEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
August 29th, 2012
Henrik Kantola aka Chantola is a well versed Finnish producer and we see his new slice entitled Make It Happen backed up with a slew of awesome remixes.
Henrik has been a stalwart in progressive beats for a long time having been on labels like Spinnin Records, Blackhole, Baroque and more recently Bonzai Progressive.
He has appeared on many compilations and remixed lots of tunes under the Green Martian, Camouflage, Fourty 5, Nemesis, Subtraxx and Eyepatch labels. Today Chantola resides on Bonzai Progressive and has delivered a very nice piece of music.
First up we have the Balearic Mix which is full of island pleasures, cool, sophisticated and laid back prog grooves, tight production blends a host of awesome sounds, chunky kick, grooving bass, sultry vocals and swaying synth pads all make for an evening on the terraces.
Matan Caspi drops in to add a hint of tech into the prog house vibe while keeping the coolness and suave of the main sound, very well crafted remix, a little more synth work and some crisp guitar keeps the summer theme alive.
Popular remixing duo Manu Riga gives us their Come Back Remix which delivers a full on prog experience that would fit well on any floor or beach party, constant groove on the bass with those vocals lead up to a break that just exudes summer essence, very powerful remix.
Johny S returns with remix duty on a Chantola track and he delivers as usual, with the focus more on the house side we are treated to an amazing ride, funky bassline and jazzy sax/trumpets make for a big sound for big floors.
