MINDGAMERS – ONCE AGAIN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
April 24th, 2013
Talinn’s finest Zas & Sanze aka Mindgamers are back with more tripped out prog house vibes with their new track “Once Again” and it comes with a little help from friends Florian Meindl and Electric Bastards on remix duty.
The original is a proper Mindgamers track with crisp, sharp hats and rhythmic percussions over a tight kick. Brilliant piano chords take centre stage here and a truly deep throbbing bass will get any speaker (and ass) shaking. Well placed vocal sample repeats once again and on the break the piano ramps up a notch with super cool strings coming through, one hell of a build up gets us pounding back into the groove, top quality stuff!
First up for remix duties is Florian Meindl with his Shitakusa Remix. Berlin based producer, DJ and sound designer Florian is a hard working artist with many releases and remixes under his belt including on his own label Flash Recordings. With a passion for music he is busy with writing movie soundtracks and has completed his BA at the London College Of Music. Here he applies his skill in style, carving out a straight up prog house groover, nice chunky kicks are in contrast with subtle strings and some very nifty FX and synth work. On the break the bass is boss and the pianos provide for an awesome build up back into this superb flowing track.
Electric Bastards aka Jordan Drieghe and Curt Savage are a Belgium based duo who have lost their souls to music. They are devoted to House beats and like to experiment with genres as Deep, Tech and Progressive House. Here they provide us with a stunning remix which focuses around a brilliant deep bassline throughout. Lots of FX play a part here with tight percussion and drum arrangement creating a steady groove. Cool use of the vocal with brilliant filtering on the piano sample, quality stuff here and sure to be a firm favourite for a lot of jocks.
