STAN KOLEV – FORSAKEN EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Having appeared on several of our compilations over the years, Stan Kolev marks his full Bonzai Progressive debut with the superb three tracker Forsaken EP. Since 2005 this guy has been dishing out top quality cuts on many top labels. Everything from progressive house, deep house and tech house has been covered. In recent times he has shown up on our own compilations including Club Traxx – Progressive House 13, 15 and 16. No doubt we’ll be seeing more from this guy in the future.

Forsaken is up first and comes in two flavours, the Original Mix and the Instrumental. Both offer up a solid slice of techno with the Instrumental made available or those that want to lose the sparse vocals. Right from the off you find yourself locked into a powerful techno groove that is made up of thumping kicks, bright hats and a superb deep and lush bassline that drives the groove beautifully. In the background a series of almost industrialised clangy FX set the tone and deliver a tough edge to the sound. The sinister vocal adds cool texture to the sound and works perfectly against the backdrop of a stunning techno groove. Simply awesome.

Mauve intros with a cool stuttering bass sound alongside a subdued kick drum with crisp hats and sharp claps riding alongside. Percussive layers start to build and a solid rhythm ensues as the kick drum gets beefed up into a powerful pounding punch. Cool FX fill in the spaces and create a colourful multi layered sound with a super tight arrangement. Sweeping vocal sounds make their presence know from time to time as we are drawn deeper into the groove. A somewhat minimalist approach to progressive that will most definitely beef up any set, no doubt.

DANIELE CUROTTO – DECK OF CARDS EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Argentinean DJ and producer Daniel Curotto marks his Bonzai Progressive debut with a very impressive three track EP entitled Deck Of Cards. It was shortly after a trip to Europe that Daniel first decided he wanted to get into music, in particular DJing. After a few years of playing in and around Mar del Plata he decided to create his own music. He started to practice with Subiela Francisco Fernandez who not only taught him about bass or drums, he also taught about emotion in music. Influenced mainly by the techno genre, Daniel had the opportunity to meet artists like+John Creamer, 16 Bit Lolitas, Tocadisco, Fatboy Slim, John Acquaviva, Trentemoller, Tiga, Loco Dice, Guy J etc. Today his style is a mixture of techno, house and progressive, and he plans to continue to evolve his sound and style.

Up first we have Deck Of Cards which delivers a mixed bag of tech house meets progressive resulting in some explosive dancefloor friendly moments. A tight drum arrangement, complete with a solid punchy kick drum and bright hats amidst a myriad of percussions, keeps the rhythms in check as ultra cool synths and chords work their magic. The track does have a dark tone that will light up any floor. A hypnotic bass mesmerizes while sporadic chord stabs beefs up the groove. Top notch stuff here that you will not want to miss.

Inspiring Clones delivers an eclectic look at deep, groovy vibes with a progressive twist that works beautifully to create a solid groove to give any set a boost. Expertly arranged beats sit over a superb deep bassline that settles into a steady flowing rhythmic groove. Up top we have a very cool vocal that inspires an Ethnic trait through the track while that bassline probes with its deep boring tentacles. Surreal in parts, this one will get the imagination running wild.

Mild Rise is a big progressive hitter that will no doubt find its way into many late night sessions with its deep and dark tones. The intro boasts a cacophony of sound with swirling pads merging with cool FX and subtle percussions that slowly build into a solid beat that delivers cool rhythms to work that booty to. A punchy kick drum bursts through alongside a brilliant chugging bassline that provides the foundation for a fantastic ride. The break throws up a surreal sequence filled with those relentless pads and a very cool vocal that captivates. A perfectly trippy slice of prog that is not to be missed.

AUDIO NOIR – FROM LONDON TO MOSCOW – REMIXES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Almost 8 months on from the release of his album Artificial Star, Australia’s Audio Noir sets out his stall once more and invites four top quality remixers to do their thing with his track From London To Moscow. The original version delivered a solid progressive house groove and we’ve no doubt that these four remixes will do that justice. Vince Aoun is up first on remix duties with his unique twist on the original. Lebanese DJ and producer Vince was last seen round these parts back in November 2015 with his Bonzai Progressive debut Lilium. Since then he has seen his work released on Vandit Records and Melodika Music as well as appearances on our WMC 2016 compilation and Afterhour Trax 19 on Green Martian. The remix opens with a muted kick drum that is cloaked by some crispy bright hats. The beat dissipates to reveal a warm lush bass tone as a cool arp rises up. Sultry vocals ring out and suddenly we’re lashed with a monstrous breaks pattern complete with a powerful kick and snappy snares. The drums are super tight here and will certainly cause a commotion on the floors. As we get lost in the breaks and 80’2 styled rolls a delicious acid riff courses through the sound alongside gritty basses. Top notch stuff from Vince that you do not want to miss.

Quantus aka Volkan Erman & Dimi Douglas returns to the remix desk with another of his top notch efforts. Last time out we got a dosing of his superb talents on remix duty for Nico Parisi’s Raklet before teaming up with Findike on Deep Connection. On the remix we get a taste of the sheer quality coming out of this guys studio. A classic punchy kick and hi hat combi graces the intro alongside hypnotic percussions that set up a flowing rhythm. Cool vocals are scattered throughout and deliver a mysterious edge to the sound. Deep droning basses carry the groove nicely and are accompanied by dirty synths and basses. The break reveals a more melodic side to the sound as a soothing vocal rings out complete with superb FX bringing some very cool textures into the groove. A definite must have track that will delight any set.

Blufeld is up next on the remix with his Long Distance Rework and once again we see why this guy remains a firm favourite. Since September 2015 when we saw his last cut, this guy remained very busy indeed in the studio. After a few remixes he teamed up with Platunoff to deliver Tiefe Gedanken which quickly gathered pace and saw great support from across the board. Always an exciting time when this guy drops by and no doubt there will be much more to come. The remix intros with some very cool FX that fade away to reveal a powerful kickdrum and rattling bass combi as bright open hats feed through. The stuttering synths create a superbly colourful melody that grabs a hold of you and carries you along for the ride. As the layers build we find more and more melodics creep in to the sound resulting in a very impressive progressive groove. On the break we are transported back in time with a wonderful gated synth that dishes out a mesmerizing pattern before we are slammed right back into full on mode. A simply stunning slice of prog that will be at the top of many sets no doubt.

Ruslan Vashkevich rounds up this impressive remix pack with a superb chill remix. Taking a bit of a side step from his usual progressive vibes, Ruslan enters the world of chill and does so with a flurry of panache and surrealism. His last outing – Perfect Choice saw support from a lot of top jocks and we’ve no doubt that this side step into chilldom will follow suit. The remix opens with a fading in, haunting sound that opens up into an expertly layered pad. Deeper elements make their way into the soundscape as various FX add colour to the sound. A surreal arp cascades up and down creating a sublime space type vibe. Intermittent bass drops raise the intensity as those arps dominate the sound before fading away to reveal a cacophony of bells that play us out. A wonderfully creative piece that will give your imagination something to think about.

ZRG – FORGET THE PAST (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

ZRG debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Forget The Past which includes a fantastic remix from Chris Drifter. This guy has been churning out quality vibes since 2007 with a mixture of progressive and tech house. He has shown up on labels such as Egothermia, Krata and his own ZRG. On the remix we find Chris Drifter delivering the goods, and these two are no strangers having worked together on various collabs over the years.

The Original Mix intros with a distinctly crispy hi hat and snappy percussion combi before a monster kick drum come through and takes full control alongside a superb deep bassline. The percussions continue to layer up forming into a solid rhythmic flow as the bass is joined by a more probing, chugging sibling. Throughout the track a series of short breaks steadily introduce a rising pad the goes on to mesmerize with its captivating tones. A super slick slice of tech house that will definitely turn a few heads.

Next up we have the Chris Drifter Remix which takes us down a more cultured progressive route. Right from the off we find ourselves locked on as punchy kicks and crispy hats combine alongside a chugging bassline. A melodic sequence slowly fades in and teases us with its enchanting siren like qualities. At the break the bass is filtered allowing a very cool drum pattern to form up before slamming right back into full on mode. A powerful driving progressive cut that will be a welcome addition in any set.
