Gai Barone, a name synonymous with quality music returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic There’s A Lady which comes backed up with a remix from Stan Kolev. His last outing for us came in March 2017 as he helped celebrate 25 years of Bonzai with his superb remix of Push – Universal Nation which became a top pick in many sets and gained numerous top spots on several download portals. Over the last number of years Gai has consistently churned out top quality cuts on various labels. He is a firm favourite on Bonzai Progressive as his brand of deep, flowing progressive house sits comfortably on the legendary label. His radioshow Patterns is listened to religiously by a worldwide fan base and he is held in very high regard by his peers, with many citing him as an inspiration to produce their own music. Great to have him back for more.

Gai’s original mix gives us a solid slice of progressive house as the sound moves effortlessly creating a warm groove filled with lush tones and subtle melodies. A tight drum section complete with chunky kick drums and shuffling hi hats drives the track with a steady flowing rhythm. Expertly crafted basses bubble up from the depths delivering a deep and sublime groove. On the break a series of subtle melodies break out and are contrasted by short sharp stabs while a mysterious vocal lurks. Excellent stuff once more from this huge talent, not to be missed.

Based out of Miami Beach, Florida, Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with a superb remix. We last got a taste of his unique talents on remix duties for Iga Dep’s Fat Analog which proved popular among many. This guy has been churning out quality vibes for over 10 years and in that time he has turned his hand to many styles and genres. He focuses mainly on progressive house but you will find he can dish out top notch vibes in various genres with the same dedication and resulting quality. A very much revered artist by his peers, Stan inspires many to reach his standard. His back catalogue is mind blowing and he has appeared on many top rated labels over the years. On the remix here Stan dishes out a fine slice of progressive house filled with warm tones, tight drums and a deep grooving bassline. The melodies swirl throughout the track with ease and are joined by cool FX and rich strings. The bassline transforms from deep droning to a short riff style that creates a lot of movement in the sound making this an absolute must have.

Russian based producer Dofamine returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Star Light. Last time out we got some real nice progressive vibes on For My Love which grabbed a lot of attention. Dofamine never fails to impress and releases on the likes of Suffused, ICONYC and Stripped Recordings as well as the mighty Bonzai have secured his place at the top of the progressive pile. Always a pleasure to hear new material from Dofamine and no doubt there’ll be much more to come.

Star Light opens with a snappy kick drum as various percussions start to form a smooth rhythmic flow. A wonderfully warm and lush bass emerges washing the groove in deep tones while hypnotic arpeggios add lots of movement to the sound. Subtle melodies creep through and on the break the melodies really shine, creating a beautiful sounsdscape before the track powers back into full on mode. A solid slice of mid tempo progressive here that will not disappoint.

Echoes is a suitably apt title for Dofamine’s next cut as the intro paints a wonderful kaleidoscope of colourful sounds through a myriad of echoing sounds. The sounds blend effortlessly, intertwining into a rich tapestry of noise. A nice and solid drum section develops which gives us a steady rhythm to get down to. Sweet, soft melodies arrive in the form of cascading arpeggios while atmospheric pads swirl overhead. A wondrous piece that is most definitely not to be missed.

Le Mills debuts on Piston Recordings with the sublime two tracker entitled AM EP. First up we have the wonderful house grooves of AM which intros with a bright, crispy hi hat combo before being joined by a solid kick drum. The track breaks to reveal a cool vocal which gives the sound a superb club vibe. A seriously deep bassline weaves into the track taking the groove to a deeper level. Various synths of the filtered and arpeggio variety come through to give that true house feeling as the vocal continues to pelt. Very nice indeed and not to be missed.

Controller sets off with a muted kick and sharp percussions that get the rhythm moving nicely. The kick are beefed up with a bit of thump as a powerful spoken vocal fills the sound. A probing bassline moves effortlessly through the track generating a solid groove that will definitely get the floors moving. Quirky FX dish out cool textures and blend smoothly into the percussions and ultimately to your feet. Top notch stuff, no doubt.

Ilario Laggetta returns to Piston Recordings as a solo artist with his 088 EP. His debut for us came back in the Summer of 2015 alongside studio partner Alessio Rizzo with the superb Breakfast In Lebanon. Ilario found music early in his life and in 1988 he stepped into the DJ world and began a magical journey that would take him through various clubs and top spot at various DJ competitions. His sets deliver a cool blend of rhythmic tech house with melodic touches while his music carries its own unique characteristic. Great to see him at Piston once more.

088 intros with a fantastic pounding kick drum and bright crispy hi hat combo alongside minimal percussions and a cool vocal one shot. The track breaks to reveal some very cool synth stabs and club vocals that deliver a nice retro theme throughout. The groove is pumped up by a dancey bassline and various synth riffs that keep the vibe alive. A real nice slice of tech flavoured house that is not to be missed.

I Said House is a solid stomper of a track which pumps out a serious groove that will delight the floors for sure. Thumping kick drums lead the way alongside tight percussions and shuffling hats as a bubbling bassline rattles along. Cool vocals which sound like ‘acid house’ litter the groove giving the track a real nice club vibe. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Love And Money delivers a full on tech house groove complete with punchy kick drums, slicing hi hats and a fantastic bouncing bassline that will force you to the floor. A very cool female vocal runs through the track to great effect, giving it a solid dancefloor appeal for sure. Minimal sounds blend together in all right places making this a definite must have for those pumping sets.

Belgian technoist Van Czar is back at Bonzai Basiks with Danse Du Petit Matin which comes backed up with a fine remix from Jamez. Van is all about the music, he never fails to deliver the goods with quality always at the forefront. Aside from creating cuts like this he is constantly on the lookout for great new music for his label CZ, which is already gathering a hugely impressive back catalogue of sounds. We always look forward to his latest offerings, he never disappoints.

Van’s Deep Dub Tech gets us on the move with a pounding kick drum and short, sharp hi hat combo. Various percussions fade through and the rhythm takes hold as a darker elements start to rise. The kicks generate a nice bassy after touch that merges beautifully with the deep rooted subs. Soft synth notes are contrasted with chilling stabs creating a sinister vibe. The percussions play a big part here, keeping the groove on point and the rhythm flowing. Top notch yet again from this guy.

Dutch legendary DJ and producer Alex Dijksterhuis aka Jamez steps up on remix duties and delivers an absolute banging track in the process. A co-founder of Trancesetters, Tata Box Inhibitors, P.I.M.P., Loophole, Amfibian, Mindfunk and many more guises, this guy is a workhorse when it comes to producing quality music. He is no stranger to Bonzai having released several cuts on our Eyepatch Recordings imprint as well as Bonzai Back Catalogue. He has also appeared regularly on Bonzai Basiks in the past, most notably on the remix for Tribal Warriors’ (aka M.I.K.E./Push) 08 back in 2013. Great to see him back after a hiatus, he’s always welcome here. On the remix here Jamez takes us to a deeper level of techno with a sublime slice. Right from the off we’re drawn into the lower echelons as eerie synths beckon us along to the backdrop of a solid drum section that delivers a tight rhythmic groove. Hypnotic basses keep us locked in as those synths do their thing while in the background mesmeric pads remain a constant. The percussions intensify drawing us into a tribal vibe and ultimately to the floors. Fantastic stuff that you do not want to miss.

Puresine aka USA based producer Stephen Moon debuts on Green Martian with the sublime two tracker entitled Wave EP. Expect to hear some serious deep progressive grooves complete with spine tingling melodies with this one. Stephen also goes by the alias Onium and has several cuts under this moniker spanning a few years. This project is somewhat of brand new adventure in his musical journey and we’re delighted to have him on board here to kickstart this new chapter.

Drops Of Light is a divine slice of progressive bliss with a solid, driving bass groove sitting beautifully against a tight drum arrangement that spews out dancey rhythms. That bassline dominates here and will certainly get the feet moving towards the floors. Swirling pads and risers float overhear as sweet melodies cascade through the groove. A wonderfully contrasting piece that is a definite must have.

Shared Vision intros with a superb tribalistic vibe as various percussions get the rhythm moving. A chunky kick drum follows to take control and we soon find ourselves mesmerized by the impending progressive groove. A deep probing bass fades in to fill the low end with lashings of warm vibes while filtered synths go to work in the mid range. A short break reveals a sweeter side before those tight drums and thick basses take over. On the main break we’re taken deeper into the progressive abyss and hypnotized by the pulsing pads and those stabbing synths that take us back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff you do not want to miss.

As part of our 25 Year celebrations we’ve entrusted one of our biggest tracks for the remix treatment to the capable hands of Airwave, and he definitely hits the spot with this one. Blue Alphabet’s Cybertrance is most definitely a classic that is worthy of this remix. First appearing in 1994 the Blue Alphabet collective was made up of like-minded artists Christophe Vervroegen, David Brants, Gregory Dewindt and Peter Schiettekatte. The timing of the release of Cybertrance couldn’t have been more fitting as energetic and hypnotic harder edged trance was about to peak. Numerous remixes and re-issues followed down the years which is a testament to its legendary status. The group went on to release several other successful tracks that delivered the Bonzai sound to the masses. Airwave relished the opportunity to get his hands on this one, and he just knew it required his signature breaks vibe which works so well in the sound. A master of his trade, Airwave is revered across the World for his meticulous track building and vision for his sound. He’s dished out hundreds of original releases and contributed to an equal amount of remixes over the years which has gained him an army of dedicated fans. Currently (2017) he’s practically touring the World with gigs in Canada, USA, UK, Belgium, Spain, The Netherlands and beyond. On top of all this he still finds the time to give us beautiful music such as his latest offering Amber Sky and through his LCD Sessions. A special remix from a special talent, enjoy.

Prolific house music aficionado Rick Wade returns to Piston Recordings with his fourth slice of house music goodness for our listening pleasure. Detroit based Rick is highly revered in the industry for his dedication to the true purposes of house. Also known as Big Daddy Rick and Dr. Low-Tech, he has literally released hundreds of tracks throughout his career on almost 50 different labels since the mid 1990’s. He is also owner of Harmonie Park Records which specialises in deep house and has been running this label since 1993. Born just outside Chicago’s South Side he started spinning in the mid 80’s in the same club where Jeff Mills was cutting his teeth. From there he went on to run his own show on WCBN and gained a name for himself on the circuit to this day. His last outing here – Daedalus – was very well received as expected and we’ve no doubt this one will hit the floors in time for the Summer months.

Narel returns to Green Martian after a bit of a hiatus with the superb album Losing Adequacy. We last saw this hugely talented artist with The View At 2 AU back in 2014. But, since then he has shown up on remix duties for Alfonso Muchacho’s Darkosaur on Bonzai & Friends 500. Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons became fascinated by electronic music after hearing Jean Michel Jarre’s Oxygene aged 5. At 15 he began experimenting with+samplers and sequencers and in time+added synthesizers to his setup. What was a hobby became a bit more serious in 2010 when his first tracks were released on the Bonzai Progressive imprint Fourty 5. After over 30 releases+across multiple labels his first album is finished and more original tracks are remixes are always in production. The Narel sound is rooted in oldskool progressive, progressive house, ambient and downtempo.

Airwave’s Cyberbreaks Remix is a beautifully constructed track filled with all the intricacies of the original blended effortlessly with Laurent’s contemporary vision. The intro draws us into a wonderful cinematic experience filled with those chunky breaks and rich pads alongside the famous 7th dimension spoken vocal. Gnarly basses deliver the original melody with a little help from sweeter elements recreating that mesmeric arpeggio. A myriad of delicate sounds and FX layer up in the background adding some colourful textures. Track holds tension and builds us up into a breaks frenzy by the end making this a very fitting tribute to the original, an absolute gem.

Based in Velenje, Slovenia, Brlee debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic This Is The Place which comes backed up with two superb remixes from Manu Riga and Crocy. Brlee’s DJ career began in 2002 and since then he has played at many clubs and events including Bora Bora in Ibiza, Space, Ibiza – alongside Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin at This Is Revolution – and has held residencies at Casablanca and Escape in Slovenia. In 2016 he founded Overload Records bringing together a collection of like-minded artists and spreading their sound far and wide. With several releases on various labels, Brlee’s first solo effort on Overload came out in late 2016 and no doubt we haven’t seen the last of this guy.

The Original Mix intros with a brilliant punchy kick drum that pounds out a solid beat alongside subtle percussions and sweet melodies that fade in slowly. The theme of the track is laid out beautifully in the first few bars as we embark on a deep and thoughtful slice of progressive house bliss. Stabbing synths contrast well with the softer melodic elements while a rumbling bass lies on the low end. A heavily FX’d voice mesmerizes as we are locked in for the duration on this one. Top notch stuff you do not want to miss.

Manu Riga is back for remix duties with another one of his sublime efforts that blow us away every time. His Dreamz Remix is simply stunning and will leave you wanting more and more. So far this year Manu Riga has already delivered us some quality cuts in the form of the outstanding Your Silent Cries as well as a few remixes. Currently he is working on new material with an exciting new collaboration also in the works, we look forward to that one in the near future. Here he gives us a solid progressive house workout with the original melody given prominence. A tight Manu Riga style drum section delivers a flowing rhythm while a lush bass fills us with warmth. Swirling pads etch out a rich tapestry of sound that blend effortlessly with the soft melodies as that drum arrangement gets the feet working to the floor. Superb stuff once again from the Belgian maestro.

Crocy is up next with his fantastic remix which takes us down a deeper progressive path filled with contrasting sounds and a solid driving groove. Last time out we saw Crocy deliver a stunning remix on Platunoff & Blufeld’s Trua and before that we caught him on our In The Mix series where he performed a blisteringly good prog set. Here he gives us a real tasty treat in the prog department as the track intros with a punchy kick and slicing hi hat combo to the backdrop of a mesmeric rising pad and soft melody. Shuffling rhythms come out of an enhanced percussion arrangement as the synths and keys intensify. The bassline gets major focus with its driving prowess and powerful groove directing us to the floors. A wonderfully crafted slice that balances darker elements with softer melodies, top notch.

Cyprus based music duo Paul Angelo and Don Argento return to Bonzai Progressive with the brilliant Voyager EP which comes fresh off the back of their debut Ipanema EP back in February 2017. They started writing and playing electronic music as a duo back in 2013 and since then they performed at top electronic music venues in Cyprus and managed to reach the Beatport top 100 with their debut EP, Bromelain. Their music blends elements of Progressive House, Trance and Techno. They have seen support from big electronic artists such as Tim Penner, Capa, Robert R. Hardy, Pete K, Dmitry Molosh, Simos Tagias, Chris Zag, Haris C, Paul Anthonee and many more. Great to this talented team back for more.

Voyager delivers a beautifully constructed melodic progressive groove right from the off. Muted kicks are joined by hypnotic keys as a deep droning bass rises up. The kicks are beefed up with nice mid level thump taking the track to the next level. Melodies come fleeting through mesmerizing the senses and locking us in for the duration. An array of intricate patterns converge perfectly to create a blissful experience that is not to be missed.

Below Sea Level intros with nice chunky kick drum alongside various percussions that build up a cool rhythmic sequence. Deep basses litter the sound creating anticipation as cosmic synths layer up creating a surreal narrative. The abyss level bass shores up the groove beautifully while the upper sounds take the track galactic. The break is divine as retro styled synths dish out their Jarre-like sound. Top stuff once again from this duo, a must have for sure.

Prolific house music aficionado Rick Wade returns to Piston Recordings with his fourth slice of house music goodness for our listening pleasure. Detroit based Rick is highly revered in the industry for his dedication to the true purposes of house. Also known as Big Daddy Rick and Dr. Low-Tech, he has literally released hundreds of tracks throughout his career on almost 50 different labels since the mid 1990’s. He is also owner of Harmonie Park Records which specialises in deep house and has been running this label since 1993. Born just outside Chicago’s South Side he started spinning in the mid 80’s in the same club where Jeff Mills was cutting his teeth. From there he went on to run his own show on WCBN and gained a name for himself on the circuit to this day. His last outing here – Daedalus – was very well received as expected and we’ve no doubt this one will hit the floors in time for the Summer months.

I Know Ur There gives us that classic pumping kick drum and crispy hi hat with scattered percussions combo on the intro. The track suddenly breaks to reveal the warmest chords and endearing club style vocal. The beats return and you know you’re in for a real treat. Those chords remain a constant and are joined by high strings and brighter, simple notes which add texture to the sound. A relentless floor move here no doubt, a must have.

Seen Things opens with a cool spoken vocal to the backdrop of warm pads and high strings. A deep probing bassline joins in before a subtle kick drum arrives with bright crispy hi hats in tow on the offset. The pads mesmerize creating a melancholic groove that is built upon with the addition of soft synth stabs and cool FX. The vocal returns adding character to the sound making this the perfect weapon for the late night sessions.

Madrid based DJ and producer Mike Denitz returns to Piston Recordings for his second stint with the superb It’s Here EP. His last effort here – Come Back EP – proved popular among many and we’ve no doubt this one will follow suit. Since then he has released on several labels as well as featuring on My House Is Your House 14 for our parent label Bonzai Progressive. Nice to see him back for more.

This three tracker serves up a real nice tech house treat that gives us plenty of reasons to hit the floors. First up we have It’s Here which intros with a pumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combo. The deep basses have a building intensity which comes to the fore on the break creating a solid groove to get down to. Top notch stuff. Next up we have Chop That which sets out with punchy kicks and rhythmic percussions before a deep rumbling bassline takes over dominating the groove. Cool vocal shots litter the sound creating a dynamic layer while pads float across the spectrum. Superb stuff with a pounding beat that is not to be missed. Rounding off this fine pack we have the deeper One More Time with its slightly more minimal approach. The drums beat out a steady groove as sub level basses rattle the bass bins. Intense pads rise up alongside distant rave synths which are joined by a very cool spoken vocal creating an intriguing narrative. Excellent stuff once again that will not disappoint.

Narel returns to the Bonzai stable after a bit of a hiatus with the superb album Losing Adequacy. We last saw this hugely talented artist over on our Green Martian imprint with The View At 2 AU back in 2014. But, since then he has shown up on remix duties for Alfonso Muchacho’s Darkosaur on Bonzai & Friends 500. Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons became fascinated by electronic music after hearing Jean Michel Jarre’s Oxygene aged 5. At 15 he began experimenting with samplers and sequencers and in time added synthesizers to his setup. What was a hobby became a bit more serious in 2010 when his first tracks were released on the Bonzai Progressive imprint Fourty 5. After over 30 releases across multiple labels his first album is finished and more original tracks are remixes are always in production. The Narel sound is rooted in oldskool progressive, progressive house, ambient and downtempo.

The album opens with pulsing wave as rich and warm pads fade slowly in only to be joined by sweet melodic strings and earthly FX. A tight arrangement of breaks steal the vibe taking us on a sublime journey of contrasting sounds making Pulse Garden the perfect opener for the journey ahead. Next up is The Void Which Binds with its deliberate nod to Jarre and other electronic music pioneers. Droning bass pads and cosmic synths are the order of the day here and make for a truly surreal experience. Circle Sky is next and delivers a wonderfully epic ambient groove. Swirling pads set us off and soon make way for the most beautiful array of synths, pads and strings creating an emotional and euphoric piece of music. Huge climaxes come in wave after wave as the track ebbs and flows pulling at every emotional string in your being, simply divine. Return Of The Northerlies is our first glimpse at Narel’s progressive house prowess on this album. A wonderfully crafted slice of oldskool prog filled with driving beats, hypnotic basslines, authentic acid lines and heaps of melodies, just WOW, superb stuff. We get a respite in the form of the ambient Re-Arecibo at the midway before going mid-level tempo on I Need Recalibrate with its strong bass structure and fantastic synth patterns. The deceptive Our Surface Dances intros with the most wonderfully peaceful ambience before we’re thrust into full on drum n bass like drum pattern creating a mesmerizing hybrid joint that will not disappoint. Find The Quiet Places is another dive into the progressive world and once again the groove is spot on. Rich in melodies and driven by a tight drum and bassline combo this one is destined for the floors no doubt. Plaji gives off a smooth downtempo vibe before we hit the floors again with the delicious Re-Run with its full on prog mode switched to 11. We finish up with the serene, lush vibes of A Victim Of Circumstance, the perfect ending to an inspiring and thought provoking album.

One thing is for sure, this album will be praised by all as a masterclass in production, arrangement, composition and simply as a damn fine collection of tracks.

Iga Dep returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two tracker Fat Analog which comes with remixes from two hugely talented artists, Stan Kolev on Fat Analog and Van Czar on Arctic Human, as well as original mixes for both tracks. Iga Dep is fresh off the back of his debut for BP – Indigo – which proved popular among many having charted very well indeed and getting a run out from many jocks. No doubt this one will follow suit, we just love it here in the office.

First up we have the original mix of Fat Analog and as the title suggests you can be sure there’ll be plenty of phat analogue goodness. Right from the off we’re faced with that warm traditional electronic music sound in the form of deep rich pads and basses alongside a very cool low spoken vocal. Punchy kick drums and shuffling percussions deliver a solid rhythm as superb classic sounding synths come into play. The synths are twisted, filtered and modulated throughout creating a lot of movement in the track making this a definite dancefloor monster.

Miami Beach based purveyor of fine grooves Stan Kolev is up first on remix duties on Fat Analog delivering yet another tantalising hybrid prog tech vibe for our listening pleasure. Stan’s last outing for BP was the aptly titled Breathless back in September 2016 and this one saw great support in charts and on the floors. He also appeared on several Bonzai compilations last year which is no wonder given his superb sound. Here he does the original mix proud in retaining that warm analogue sound. A deeper groove ensues thanks to a pulsating bassline and accompanying mid range synth lines. A hypnotic arpeggio cascades through the track alongside a beautiful vocal with the tight drums dishing out a flowing rhythm. Top notch stuff.

The Original Mix of Arctic Human is up next and takes us deeper with a super tight groove that will certainly keep the floors rocking long into the night. A tight drum section leads the charge with chunky kicks and percussions setting the pace. A sinister sounding spoken vocal gives the track an edge while various electronic bleeps and blips build up the layers alongside quality FX. A tough groover for sure that is not to be missed.

Belgian technoist Van Czar heads up the remix on Arctic Human with his Club Remix which will definitely light up the floors. 2017 has started off very well for Van and his own label CZ. Already this year he’s seen several quality cuts hit the shelves and the decks including his very own CZ Clubbing release which has gained great support. An exciting time lies ahead for this guy as he will have a remix out on the legendary KMS Records, well worth keeping an eye on. The remix is delivered in true Van style, pumping beats and abyss level basses that will give the bins a rattling. A hypnotic slice filled with cool synths and driven by a tribal drum section and that solid, deep bassline. Dark vocals litter the groove add intensity while those super tight beats keep the energy levels peaking. Excellent stuff once again.

A lover of all things progressive, Dorian has seen several releases gain some great support and his latest solo effort – Icing – is no exception. Great to have him on board and we hope to see more in the future.

The Original Mix intros with a teasing muted kick before letting loose with a nice punchy companion that gets the track moving. Tight percussions ensure the rhythms flow with a slicing hi hat at the forefront. A wonderful gritty bassline becomes the main focus as it drives the groove alongside some very nice synths and that rich vocal. A very well crafted arrangement that will definitely get the floors moving.

Gabriel West & Ricardo Piedra return to BP with a stellar progressive driven remix that wraps you up in a subtle melodic and warm vibe. Leading the way is a solid drum section complete with pounding kicks and shuffling percussions that get the rhythm flowing. Scattered FX create a colourful, textured sound that also carries a hint of tribalism thanks to those drums. Cascading arpeggios light up the sound as a deep bass moves effortlessly through the track. Superb vocals come through to an interesting layer giving the track an air of mystery. A top notch effort once again that is not to be missed.

Italian DJ and producer duo Adriano Dodici & Checco Esse are back in the Bonzai stable with their fantastic Re-Edit. The guys had several releases previously over on our Progrez imprint and have proven themselves to be a powerful force when it comes to deep grooving vibes. Here they deliver a wonderful, mesmeric slice of techy progressive that is headed up by a tight drum arrangement and a standout vocal that sits perfectly in the sound. Deep droning basses are the order of the day here and this gives the track some real depth and a gritty texture. Subtle arpeggios weave in and out blending effortlessly with the bassline. Super stuff and a must have for sure.

Bassone UK intros with cool classic style pumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi. Sharp claps and sporadic snares add movement to the rhythm getting us right into dancefloor mode. A prominent deep throbbing bassline comes through to dominate the groove before the track breaks to reveal remnants of oldskool drum and bass sounds. The synths are simply outstanding here and they capture the essence of house music in tech format. A top notch slice that is not to be missed.

Pump The Bass is the perfect title for this one, right from the off you know the bass is gonna get pumped as a tight drum section takes us up to a short break before the inevitable bass pumping begins. The track is elevated to classic status instantly thanks to the use of a much loved acapella from 1988 that fits so perfectly into this contemporary groove, gimme a phat beat, anyone. Swelling chords accompany the vocal adding richness to the sound making this an absolute must have track for any party set.

Mike Morales returns to Piston Recordings with the superb Come With Me EP. We last saw Mike under his Mi Ke moniker back in 2016 with his 214 EP which performed very well indeed and no doubt this latest effort will follow suit. Mike is a force to be reckoned with on the house scene as he’s been around for quite some time. He is heavily influenced by Portugal’s infamous underground scene and his name began resonating amongst established DJ’s and artists. His debut track – Dream Shattered, premiered on Digweed’s Transitions radio show in 2003 and since then he has continued to churn out top quality vibes.

Come With Me is a full on club driven monster with chunky beats and an outstandingly simple yet highly effective diva-esque vocal. Tight drums lead a flowing rhythm while a meandering bass weaves through the track to the backdrop of that superb wailing vocal that will definitely get booty’s on the floor. Warm chords litter the sound bringing in a richer vibe as various vocal snippets ring out. A wonderfully crafted slice that will not disappoint.

Dub With Me strips out most of the vocal with just a few select phrases thrown in to keep that club vibe alive. A powerful groove on this one that will hit the floors for sure.

Bumble-B intros with slicing hi hat patterns and a pumping kick drum before a deep rumbling bass joins in and gets the body moving. Soft melodies come through and cascade effortlessly through the sound, contrasting perfectly against the deeper elements of the groove.
