MENDEXX – LIFE BEGINS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Debut appearance on Bonzai Progressive for Mendexx with the superb Life Begins which is backed by three fantastic remixes.The Original Mix intros with a smooth kick and strolling bass that gets the juices flowing. Cool percussions form up and bring a nice rhythmic vibe to the sound as various FX add depth. The bass hypnotizes as it unleashes its groove on our senses and takes us deep into the progressive abyss. Spacey synths dominate as they deliver their harsh tones giving the track a real edgy feel. The break reveals some very cool and subtle melodic flavours which stand in contrast to those harsher synths before the track rises back into the main groove. A top notch slice of prog for those darker rooms.

Manu Riga, a firm favourite at Bonzai, delivers his Progrezz Remix. We know and love Manu’s work and here he transitions himself into slightly different territory with an emphasis on a much tougher vibe with a true driving progressive groove. The intro boasts a wonderful kick with a nice clipped top as crispy hats sit alongside some classy FX that rise and fall beautifully. Melodies are borne out of cool synth riffs that litter the track in all the right places. A harsh sounding vocal adds some very cool textures and fits perfectly into the dynamics of the track. The bass drives the track forward while giving space to the multitude of layers to shine. Something slightly different from Manu and no doubt we will be seeing this track get a lot of attention.

Next up we have Wild Guess’ Life In Space Remix. We last saw J.E.O.F., Config and P.O.W. aka Wild Guess back in June this year on remix duty for Digital Department featuring Cara Leigh’s You Put A Spell. Here they hold no bars in letting loose their superb progressive house grooves. The intro sets off with punchy kicks and sharp percussions as a superb melodic arp fades through. A deep throbbing bass soon follows and dominates the sound wonderfully as those arps continue to rise. The track settles into an infectious groove that holds you in as those basses begin to really let loose with fantastic note changes. The break is a cacophony of melodies that interweave beautifully and are joined by a pulsing bass before the beats kick back in. A truly stunning slice from these guy’s as you’d expect, a definite must have.

Rounding off this superb pack we have Alfonso Muchacho on remix duty. July 2014 saw Alfonso mark his Bonzai debut with the fantastic Despina, delight to have him on board here and no doubt we’ll be in for a treat. The intro gives that driving feel right from the off as chunky kicks and syncopated percussions merge beautifully alongside a deep-rooted bass that strolls along wonderfully. Tough and gritty stabs litter the groove and add great contrasts to the sound as much brighter sparks sit in the background. The break unleashes those gritty synths in full effect before slamming back into the main track. A brilliant display of contrasting sounds that will appeal to many.

JAMIE BAGGOTTS – JERUSALEM (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

UK based DJ and producer Jamie Baggotts marks his Bonzai debut with this stunning two tracker, Jerusalem. Jamie began his music career in the 90’s playing Drum n Bass before moving into the Trance world where he enjoyed relative success. After getting the producer bug he incorporated his unique DJing style into his productions, pushing the boundaries to discover fresh new styles. Releases on labels like Dusk Underground Music, Planet Acetate Records and Dash Deep Records followed and gave him the opportunity to share his music. We are delighted to welcome Jamie and his tight production skills here at BP and look forward to an exciting future.

First up we have Jerusalem which goes for the jugular from the get go. Pounding kicks sit over a rolling, energetic bassline that teases as it waits to pounce. Smooth rhythmic percussions give the sound a cool upbeat theme that works perfectly. The layers build beautifully here with various FX adding wonderful texture alongside a subtle melody. The bass intensifies and borders on the trance side as the track progresses taking you deeper into the groove. On the break we are treated to some very cool sweeping vox and a hypnotic arp before we are thrust right back into the main sound. An absolute monster here that will do a great job crossing over between prog house and deeper progressive trance sets.

Luna sets off with a nice punchy kick and raucous percussions that do a great job in getting the energy levels rising. A fantastic pulsing bassline comes through and then transforms into a full on driving progressive groove that really locks you in for the duration. Beautifully layered pads sit over the bass while various melodies combine on the hook culminating in a powerful rhythmic ride bringing a euphoric edge to the sound. Quite simply a stroke of genius that will appeal to many, a definite must have.

AUDIO NOIR – ALMOST FAMOUS REWORKED – VOLUME 2 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Since Audio Noir released his debut album, Almost Famous, things have been gaining pace, which led us to gathering top remix artists to work their skills on the superb tracks within the album. Back in the summer of this year Reworked Volume 1 hit the floors running and on the back of that we present to you another round of top quality remixes with Reworked Volume 2 comprising five, on fire producers doing their thing. In the meantime, Audio Noir continues his reign over deep progressive sounds with an upcoming remix on a new Phi & Airwave collaboration as well as a remix on Thorin’s Secrets and appearances on various compilations. Always worth keeping an eye on this outstandingly talented artist.

Swedish four piece Inkfish are first up on remix duty with their Promise Nothing Remix of One More Night. The intro comes in with a gnarly, raw organic flavour as heavy keys and grainy flutes set the tone. Punchy kicks soon follow alongside a fantastic distorted vocal sample that really captures the organic nature of the sound beautifully. A smooth rhythmic flow is established with the percussive elements and is further enhanced by a subtle bass that sits back allowing that vocal sample to keep control of the track. Superb stuff that will be a welcome addition to those darker, deeper sets.

Pole Folder & Cedric Piret are up next with their remix of Under The Sun. It’s been a while since we last saw these guys, their last outing was on remix duty for Quincy’ In Balance back at the start of this year. Since then the guys have been working on other projects as well a DJing at various events. Here the remix gets going with some smooth bass tones alongside a steady building rhythmic percussion sequence. Nice chunky kicks get the progressive vibes flowing as melodic phrases ebb and flow through the track. A deep-rooted bassline adds to the darker element of the sound as we are locked into this wonderful groove. The break takes a surreal sidestep with those melodies converging into a beautiful sequence that leads back into the main track. A truly epic ride with deep and thoughtful imagination, not to be missed.

East Cafe aka Gabor Kaszas debuts on Bonzai Progressive with his superb remix of Midnight Til Morning. Gabor pride himself on producing intelligent sounding progressive house and has been doing so for several years. His works can be found on labels like Silk, Mistique Music, Digital Sensation and Morphosis with support coming from all quarters. Here he utilises his skills to churn out a masterful slice of prog goodness. The intro eases us into the groove with a nice and smooth percussive laden sequence which leads up to a grainy bass synth that sets the scene perfectly. The vocal sits off the main groove beautifully and captivates with its intriguing narrative. The layers continue to build and bring fleeting melodies as well as a pulsing bass that becomes a big feature. Deep and smooth progressive grooves that will draw the attention of many for sure.

Bonzai regular Yuriy From Russia delivers another of his stunning cuts we have become accustomed to with his remix of La Polaris. After a summer of multiple remixes, we look forward to more from this guy. The intro boasts a swelling, rich pad sequence with a harsh clap on the upbeat, a nice well-rounded kick is joined by a wonderful pulsating bass that fills the sound beautifully. Intricate melodies burst out of the deeper groove as arps speckle the sound. A stunning trek into deep progressive vibes that does not disappoint.

Antonio Citarella wraps up this pack with his superb remix of Morphine. We last saw Antonio on our Progrez imprint with Traveller, which was very well received among many. Here he delivers a truly sublime prog experience as the intro lets loose with a metallic arp sequence on top of some lush synth licks and a quite subtle kick. Percussions form up and bring a solid rhythm that locks you into the groove beautifully as those arps relentlessly drive on. Overall, the sound seems quite minimal but a lot of layers really beefs things up giving off a fuller sound. Top notch stuff yet again from Antonio and a definite must in any set.
