Italian DJ and producer Marco Trovato aka Mark Found debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb ‘Sagittarius’ and comes with an Original and Dub flavour. Mark started out at a young age, at just 16 he began to DJ at local radio stations where he soon became noticed and was offered many gigs in local clubs. He was playing Acid House and Rap in 1990 and soon his friends were encouraging him to get into the production side of things. His first equipment was of course a set of 1200’s and an Amiga computer. He learned all about MIDI and was soon churning out his own brand of Acid music using synths, sequencers and samplers. At this time he was also going all over Italy, taking part in DJ competitions where he showed off his mixing and scratching skills.
First up we have the Original Mix which takes us on a sublime journey into the deeper side of progressive house. The intro gets us on the move with a nice chunky kick and a cool array of FX that create a good portion of the sound. A deep bubbly bass comes through brilliantly as subtle melodic sequences play out in the background. Super tight arrangements on the drums and percussions give off a steady flowing groove while swirling pads will captivate your mind. A definite must have track as you will not want to miss this epic journey.
The Dub Mix goes all out deep and dark progressive with a monster kick on the intro and a truly awesome deep throbbing bass that is a big focus of the sound. Smooth and steady percussion patterns bring rhythms to life as cool synths build a nice melodic structure. Beautifully layered textures create a surreal atmosphere that is almost tangible. Top notch stuff from Mark and not to be missed.
