MANU RIGA & ALEX VIDAL – WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Manu Riga teams up with fellow producer Alex Vidal for their first tantalising collaboration on When Worlds Collide. The constant force that is Manu Riga never ceases to amaze, his productions always come in at the high quality end and leaves us stunned with their intricate progressive prowess. To top it all off he now appears as a DJ on many radio shows on the likes of Progressive Beats, Pure FM and Bonzai Basik Beats. 2015 has also seen Manu hit the clubs but the big event of the year has to be his appearance at Tomorrowland alongside studio partner Matt Holliday, something we know he is very much looking forward to and will no doubt relish the experience. The hugely impressive Spanish DJ and producer, Alex Vidal is fresh off the back of his last outing Mesmerized. We know what this guy brings to the table and can safely say that these two guys will definitely hit the progressive sweet spot and we look forward to more from these two in the future. Aside from the Original Mix, the guy’s branch out with their own takes on this monster progressive cut.

MANU RIGA & ALEX VIDAL – WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Manu Riga teams up with fellow producer Alex Vidal for their first tantalising collaboration on When Worlds Collide. The constant force that is Manu Riga never ceases to amaze, his productions always come in at the high quality end and leaves us stunned with their intricate progressive prowess. To top it all off he now appears as a DJ on many radio shows on the likes of Progressive Beats, Pure FM and Bonzai Basik Beats. 2015 has also seen Manu hit the clubs but the big event of the year has to be his appearance at Tomorrowland alongside studio partner Matt Holliday, something we know he is very much looking forward to and will no doubt relish the experience. The hugely impressive Spanish DJ and producer, Alex Vidal is fresh off the back of his last outing Mesmerized. We know what this guy brings to the table and can safely say that these two guys will definitely hit the progressive sweet spot and we look forward to more from these two in the future. Aside from the Original Mix, the guy’s branch out with their own takes on this monster progressive cut.

The Original intros with a nice and chunky kick and a sharp closed hat as a beautiful, swirling pad begins to swell. Cool and very subtle percussive elements are introduced and sets the rhythm up nicely as the layers build. A deep droning bass takes over and the deep progressive groove is set in stone. In contrast we are treated to some wonderfully rich plucked notes which are accompanied by the most stunning female vocal that will get the hairs raised on the back of your neck for sure. Little nuanced sounds filter through, like the gentle arps that just glide across the sound. A superb piano melody takes the centre of attention on the break alongside that lush bass before we get thrown right back into the main groove for the duration. A definite must have track in your box this Summer, the floors are gonna love this one.

Our first remix comes from Alex with his Inner Void Remix. The track sets of with a punchy kick alongside a wonderfully rich deep bass that captivates from the moment it arises. Soft hats and cool percussions deliver a solid and steady rhythm as the bass begins to transform into s full on driving progressive groove. Subtle melodic arps fill the background and offer a cool contrast between the low and high frequencies of the sound. On the break we are thrown into a world filled with beautifully sweet sounds and prominent tribal edged drums. The melodies float across the sound and keep your attention before taking a back seat once again to allow the driving bass and pounding kicks to shine. An absolute belter of a track you will not want to miss.

Next up we have Manu’s Balearic Dreams which intros with a cool drum filled sequence alongside some very cool synths and stunning FX. A very intense groove is borne out of those deeper elements that shore up this solid groove as tight breaks carry the track forward. The impressively intricate structure will definitely leave you wanting more as you discover new and exciting patterns with each listen. Manu is a master of the drum sequence and here he holds no bars as those breaks deliver a very solid and upbeat rhythm. Trademark voices come through and really capture the imagination which is given a huge boost with the addition of a fantastic ethnic guitar riff. On the break we descend into a melodic filled world that will touch your soul with a sense of euphoria before those tough breaks make their way through once more. A superb display of Balearic vibes that will no doubt feature heavily on the terraces this Summer.

SURVEYOR MODE – VAL KILMER (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Italian DJ’s and producers Matteo Tonioli and Marco Nascetti make up the duo, Surveyor Mode. The guys mark their Bonzai Progressive debut with the superb two tracker Val Kilmer. Driven by innovative musical inspirations offered by their city, at the age of 15 their passion towards club music reached into their souls. A key moment in their career was playing in a well-known club in Bologna that, in a short time, transformed a simple passion into a real job. From here they started to produce and were quickly signed to different labels. Tracks include Noster Annuit EP on DNC Limited, Arkham EP on Presslab Electro Label, Call Batman EP on Attik Room Records, More Blend EP on MO2 Records and Il Perito EP on Electro Top Records.

Val Kilmer intros with a dark Techno style vibe as muted kicks are met with a solid wall of percussions. A monster deep and throbbing bass comes through and just totally owns the track, all the while a sinister sounding vocal is going off in the background. The track gathers pace as that bassline surges into a driving groove with up and down motions taking your mind on a trip. The track breaks into a surreal melody before those super solid dirty beats raise their head once again to take us back into its murky world for the duration. Top notch stuff that will definitely have bassbins quaking.

051 sets out with a cool percussion led intro complete with muted kicks and cool FX. The kicks deliver a monster blow when they are let loose with pounding prowess. A deep, solid probing bassline sits on the low end with intent as the track drives on. On the break the low end sounds are filtered out and leave behind a super cool sequence made up of delayed vocals and a wall of filtered sounds. We are then thrust back into the main groove and those super pumping kickdrums. A real slice of deep, dark and dirty grooves that will be a welcome addition to your dancefloor arsenal.

ALEXEY LISIN & ANGE – VESNA FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Alexey Lisin marks his full debut on Bonzai Progressive with Vesna and enlists the fantastic vocal talents of Ange along the way. Not quite his first appearance as he got the Zen remix treatment on Audio Noir’s superb album, Now & Zen. Having burst onto the scene back in November 2014 with the awesome Moscow Calling, and following that up with the equally impressive Desolation at the start of January 2015, we’ve certainly got a taste of this guys musical prowess on the Techno front.
