PHI PHI – HICCUP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

We’re delighted to present yet another Phi Phi progressive trip, this time around we get locked on to the sounds of Hiccup which comes backed up with a fantastic remix. Phi Phi’s last outing – Alone, scored very well indeed and gained top spots on many charts. DJ-ing still plays a huge part in this guys career and you never have to wait too long until his next gig. Hiccup intros with a tough kick that packs a nice big punch and carries a cool click on the top end. In the background a cacophony of percussions are let loose and help create a solid platform for the track. Dark, sinister vocals ring out and lead us up to the first short break before the track gets into full on mode with a strong probing offset bass line. That bass line really gets the groove into full swing alongside those expertly crafted drum patterns. The main break throws up a rich string that contrasts beautifully with the sinister vocal sound. A proper progressive monster that will definitely hit any floor hard.

MENDEXX – DECEPTIVE MINDS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The impressive Glaswegian DJ and producer Mendexx returns with Deceptive Minds. We last got a glimpse of this guy’s talents on remix duty for Wild Guess’ Trysal 35 on Green Martian back in March 2015, as well as several appearances on various compilations. The Original mix settles into a solid progressive groove right from the off thanks to those punchy kicks and that deep pulsating bass line. Swirling FX cascade throughout the sound as striking synth keys cut through the low end frequencies. The break delivers more of those cool pads and FX before leading us back into the main groove for the duration. A simply fantastic slice of prog here that you will not want to miss.

DANIEL RAY – DIRTY LAUGH (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Daniel Ray returns to Piston with the brilliant Dirty Laugh. His last outing – Keeping On, via Eyepatch Recordings performed very well indeed and no doubt this one will be following suit. Dirty Laugh intros with a real drumkit feel as nicely tuned kicks are joined by a snappy snare hit and crispy hi-hats. A warm, deep chord comes in to take control alongside a probing bass providing a deep groove to get down to. Various layered sounds begin to find their way including some excellent gritty synths raw plucked strings. On the break we get a dosing of organic sounds that contrast perfectly off each other as those plucked strings and that deep bass continue leading us back into full swing and those super tight drum patterns. A deep and thoughtful slice of house music that will keep you on the move into the small hours.

ZEO – CYCLE EP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

Zeo debuts on Eyepatch with Cycle EP, and has the enviable job of offering a bit of a revival for the label as we haven’t had much activity since July 2014, and he definitely delivers the goods in style. Five intros with deep house grooves in mind as stabbing chords are met with a probing bass and crispy hats. You find yourself locked in for the duration as your mind is explored by that probing bass which is joined by a mesmerising pad that hangs in the air beautifully. A real solid slice here that will get the floors moving for sure.

HARUN KARABULUT – CLUB ENTRANCE EP (SOUNDS R US RECORDINGS)

Regular SRUR contributor Harun Karabulut returns with the superb four track EP entitled Club Entrance. We’re used to seeing this guy over on our Muzika series but this time around we get a tasty full release. Club Entrance takes us right into a full on techno workout from the get go as a tough kick drum is met with distorted hats and a fantastic FM bass. The track breaks to reveal a rising 303 acid line that twists and morphs into a pitching monster before subsiding and joining in on the groove. The acid line levels out and provides the perfect fodder for a real trip deep into your mind. An expertly crafted slice that will definitely be a must have track.
