ORAA & EKAI – FREAK LIKE ME FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Oraa & Ekai return to Piston with the superb two track Freak Like Me. This dynamic duo’s first outing for Piston was back in January 2015 with Hot Like 95 Fahrenheit, which picked up great support from across the board and no doubt this newest cut will follow suit.

Oraa & Ekai – Freak Like Me, out this week on Piston Recordings, is featured by Beatport in the Deep House genre page!

SATINKA – DEEP WITHIN EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Mike Walshe aka Irish DJ and producer Satinka debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this stunning three tracker entitled Deep Within EP which is sure to cause waves through the underground. Although a debutant we have seen this guy before, his track The Way Of The Ancients featured on Bonzai’s In The Mix 001 mixed by the legend that is Airwave. A relative newcomer to producing he has definitely made a huge impact with his first release over at JOOF with his five track – Dissolving The Fear EP which was followed closely by the equally impressive Everything Is Energy on Geomagnetic. Now residing in Perth, Australia, Mike focuses in on the underground side of Trance, Psytrance and Progressive with his music being supported on many worldwide radioshows.

MATHOV – INSANE FEATURED BY BEATPORT

French DJ and producer Mathov aka Mathieu Meyer returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Insane which comes with two awesome remixes from Ruslan Vashkevich and Config. Mathov’s last outing was on our 500th release where he delivered his exclusive Chill Out Trip. Prior to this he joined forces on two occasions with Dark Soul Project receiving huge support with the tracks Between 2 Sides and We Are Not Alone. Mathov is a lover of deep progressive vibes with ethnic flavours and endeavours to keep his music in the underground. Over the years he has seen his music released on top labels like Mystique Music, OLD SQL Recordings and Bonzai Progressive. His music has gained the support of some of the finest names including Airwave, Kintar, John 00 Fleming, Dark Soul Project and Moshic. He believes in releasing his music slowly so he can put as much effort into the sound as he can to deliver the highest quality.

SATINKA – DEEP WITHIN EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Mike Walshe aka Irish DJ and producer Satinka debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this stunning three tracker entitled Deep Within EP which is sure to cause waves through the underground. Although a debutant we have seen this guy before, his track The Way Of The Ancients featured on Bonzai’s In The Mix 001 mixed by the legend that is Airwave. A relative newcomer to producing he has definitely made a huge impact with his first release over at JOOF with his five track – Dissolving The Fear EP which was followed closely by the equally impressive Everything Is Energy on Geomagnetic. Now residing in Perth, Australia, Mike focuses in on the underground side of Trance, Psytrance and Progressive with his music being supported on many worldwide radioshows.

Deep Within Your Soul intros with a smooth sequence of sounds before bursting out into a full breaks arrangement that captures the imagination right away. Surreal atmospheric sounds flow through the track alongside some very subtle melodies that are just chomping at the bit to be let loose. A deep and driving bassline takes over the sound and is the perfect platform for the track to evolve. A beautifully crafted array of colours and sounds that melt into each other, drawing you in and locking you on for the duration, it’s hard to get away from this infectious groove. There’s so much more to Deep Within Your Soul than this description, making this a definite must have, you will not be disappointed.

Obscured By Dreams opens with a soft bell and smooth pads with a slight swell that seem to linger on forever. A deep, pounding kickdrum makes its way through delivering a breaks pattern that develops into a strong, solid arrangement complete with crispy hats and long splashy snares. The most beautiful melodies start to form up and contrast well with the tougher drums and gritty bassline. You get a real sense of underground with this expertly crafted collection of sounds, a totally immersive and mesmerizing groove that will have you coming back for more and more. Superb.

Introspection fades into existence with some real nice sounds including a deep droning bass and warm raspy flute. A beautifully melodic guitar soon follows and leads us into the superb, tight breaks arrangement we’ve been waiting on. Cool vocals are scattered all through this epic monster of a track and bring a little taste of retro to the sound. Again we witness the true power of the underground as Satinka unleashes an obscene array of quality sounds that seem to find common ground in the most fantastic way. Another fine slice of progressive breaks with a hint of almost everything thrown in, absolute genius.

MATHOV – INSANE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

French DJ and producer Mathov aka Mathieu Meyer returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Insane which comes with two awesome remixes from Ruslan Vashkevich and Config. Mathov’s last outing was on our 500th release where he delivered his exclusive Chill Out Trip. Prior to this he joined forces on two occasions with Dark Soul Project receiving huge support with the tracks Between 2 Sides and We Are Not Alone. Mathov is a lover of deep progressive vibes with ethnic flavours and endeavours to keep his music in the underground. Over the years he has seen his music released on top labels like Mystique Music, OLD SQL Recordings and Bonzai Progressive. His music has gained the support of some of the finest names including Airwave, Kintar, John 00 Fleming, Dark Soul Project and Moshic. He believes in releasing his music slowly so he can put as much effort into the sound as he can to deliver the highest quality.

The Original Mix gets right into a full on progressive groove from the off as cool shuffling hats are met with a chunky kick and hypnotic bass that just lurks menacingly on the low end. Very cool atmospheric sounds and FX rattle through the track adding a whole new dimension in the sound, all the while that superb prog groove is building and building. Just before the midway point the star of the show emerges in the shape of a mesmerizing synth line that arpeggiates in a never ending waterfall of melody. This one has it all and no doubt a lot of attention will follow, watch out for that bass, it’s a monster.

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is first up on the remix and yet again we the sheer quality of this guys talents shine through. He recently unleashed Acid Pig on Bonzai Progressive – which gained great support and solidified his standing in the progressive world. He also had a feature on our 500th release with Hyper Space to the delight of many. Always well worth checking this guy out. The remix sets out with a pounding kick and distant rising pads that reveal a rich texture to the sound. These pads are soon expertly manipulated to include a grittier edge that matches beautifully with the monstrous bassline that takes over the track. This one packs a massive punch even with a minimal approach to the sound. Those big swelling synths and pads will have a huge impact in any set, but the bassline will shine through for sure. A definite must have track.

Config aka Wouter Vermeire is up next with his Encrypted Reality Remix which takes us on a trippy progressive trance journey filled with melodies and a solid groove. We normally see Config as one third of producer and DJ trio Wild Guess who debuted back in February 2014 with Nebulae and followed that with Trysal 35. Several remixes followed on Green Martian and Bonzai Progressive and have become a consistent force when it comes to delivering quality. More recently though we have seen Wouter break out on his own and is putting himself out there as a go to artist for remix duty, hopefully we’ll be seeing a lot more from this guy in the future. The remix delivers a smooth intro that slowly builds into a full on, well rounded progressive groove with a sprinkling of trance that gives off a subtle euphoria. The kickdrum stands out with a nice punch and is matched with an equally nice bassline that effortlessly dominates the whole sound. On the break we get drawn into a much more trance induced sound with wonderfully crafted synth arps and sweeping pads doing the rounds. The break concludes with a simply awesome climax that locks you in for the duration. Brilliant stuff from Config, not to be missed.

MATT HOLLIDAY – PIPE DREAM FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Matt Holiday returns to BP with the hugely impressive two tracker – Pipe Dream. A very much in-demand producer Matt always notches up the quality and this one is no exception. Last time out we had Light Year which proved very popular indeed with great support having shown up in many sets and DJ charts. Outside of Bonzai he still continues to impress the head honchos over at JOOF(as well as ourselves of course). On the DJ front he plays regularly around the UK where he brings his solid progressive grooves to the floors. Much more to come from this guy and well worth keeping an eye and an ear on.

MATT HOLLIDAY – PIPE DREAM (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Last time out we had Light Year which proved very popular indeed with great support having shown up in many sets and DJ charts. Outside of Bonzai he still continues to impress the head honchos over at JOOF(as well as ourselves of course). On the DJ front he plays regularly around the UK where he brings his solid progressive grooves to the floors. Much more to come from this guy and well worth keeping an eye and an ear on.

Pipe Dream intros with a subtle kick and cool percussive arrangement as a dark bass teases us with its existence. The teasing abates and we are exposed to a superb deep and lush bass that moves slowly through the sound. Hints of melody pop up and build anticipation before a dark chant starts to form up. In a wonderful twist the dark chant is replaced by the most beautifully layered, soothing Ethnic voices that cascade through the sound to the backdrop of a deep, dark sinister progressive groove which comes to prominence on the break. As the voices subside we are taken back into full on prog mode with a little help from some cool synths that offer a rich tone to the sound. A fantastic slice and a definite must have track.

Navajo sets off with a nice punchy kick and a simple percussion arrangement that builds up into a solid drum section that carries a top notch tribal vibe. As the title suggests we are treated to some excellent Native American chants that resonate right throughout the sound and fit perfectly into the progressive nature of the track. A deep and beefy bassline shores up the low end providing a solid platform for the myriad of sounds to take hold. The break throws up a great mixture of sounds with subtle melodies at the centre before we crash back into the main track for the duration. Top notch stuff yet again from Matt, this one will be a welcome addition in any set.

KAY BARTON – RETURN 01 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Kay Barton aka Kay Piranha debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Return 01 which comes with 2 brilliant remixes from Van Czar and Jesper Mauerhoff. Kay was born in Northern Germany in 1980. From just 14 years of age he started to realize he had a passion for electronic music and his ideas soon turned into tracks with his computer using basic DOS operating software. After moving to Southern Germany near Heidelberg in 1997, Kay was given the possibility to actually work on his career for the first time. Besides producing he started working as a DJ and ever since he plays dynamic techno, house and electro swing DJ sets. For more than 2 years he has been a part of La Nuit Boheme, the biggest event series for swing and electro swing music in Germany, as a resident DJ. Over the years Kay has played in many national and international locations, at events like Love Parade, Street Parade and G-Move as well as for several German broadcast transmitters and radio stations.

The Original Mix delivers a cool slice of tech house with a pumping groove that will keep the floors alight. Punchy kicks and crispy hats provide a tight rhythmic flow as a throbbing bassline holds the track together. A wonderfully tech fuelled sound dominates on the break as it pulsates sending the mind into overdrive and is joined by a synth stab that builds us back up into the main track for the duration. A proper, punchy slice of tech for the floors, a must have.

Van Czar delivers yet another blistering remix, something we have become accustomed to over the years. We usually see this guy over on Bonzai Basiks or Eyepatch Recordings, but he has made the jump over to BP in an unexpected twist to offer up his talents once more. A very hard working artist, Van juggles hosting Bonzai Basik Beats Spain with various gigs in and around Madrid as well as finding time to create a slew of remixes and original works for Bonzai and other labels. Here on the remix Van lets loose with a wonderful Tech House groove right from the off with his Club Remix. The intro throws up a tight drum arrangement with a chunky kick at the forefront. A tech rich stab gets the track into full swing as layers build with a cacophony of sounds straight outta the space age. Fantastic stabby synths resonate throughout the track to the backdrop of those tight drums and percussions. A definite must have track for sure, proper dancefloor fodder.

Dutch DJ and producer Jesper Mauerhoff returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duty and delivers a solid slice for the floors. We first got a taste of this guys talents back in the Summer of 2015 with his BP debut Eyes Wide Shut which was followed a few months later by Trip To Strip, as well as appearances on a few compilations in between. The remix notches up the tempo slightly as those punchy kicks make their mark against a superb synth chord and a gritty bassline. This one builds beautifully resulting in a full on tech groove with just a hint of progressive coming through on the arrangement. Tough offset basses are the perfect match for those splashy snares that cut through the sound brilliantly. A monster of a tune that will appeal to many.
