PADURARU – GAMES FOR GIRLS EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)
March 20th, 2013
Romanian born Cristian Paduraru is a well established producer and DJ on the scene. He is an extremely busy artist with a huge amount of releases and remixes under his belt across many many different labels. He is heavily involved with Christian Records and The Remix Label with an eclectic mixture of styles he can turn his hand to. In the mid nineties he took to the stage with a live performance act called Fire In Water with the style being acid breakbeat with ambient techno. Moving into the 2000′s saw Cristian take to the studio as his main profession and the results are stunning. Today we see Cristian make his full Bonzai debut after brilliant remixes on Manu Riga’s “Everything Comes To An End” and Pablo Gael’s “Libelula”, with the superb prog-tech hybrid, “Games For Girls EP”.
The title track starts us off in Paduraru’s signature style with his Deeptech mix. Strong and steady rhythm on the beats with a wonderful bassline adding extra weight. Top quality synth work here in a true progressive groove, on the break we get an off key piano that adds melancholy to the track. Big strings make a show and a well rounded track is the end product, top stuff destined for many boxes.
“Energetic Enthusiasm” takes on a more minimal approach with tech in mind. A very prominent electro kick takes the lead and builds up along with some quality percussions providing a perfect groove. On the break we get classic tech-house styled synth work with an added short vocal sample with great effect. Big party vibe on this that will have many floors bouncing!
