GmT aka Gamut returns after a bit of a hiatus since his debut Vices & Transgressions EP on Green Martian back in April 2013. This time out he churns out the goods on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Closer EP. Slovenian born Gamut is the product of a very musical family having taken to this art from an early age with a venture in drums and percussion instruments. His teenage years were spent performing with bands and in 2000 he entered into the world of EDM with his first listen to a progressive CD. It wasn’t too long after that he started to DJ and ultimately produce his own sounds, many releases followed on many labels and here we see this diverse talent shine with more already lined up for the future.

First up we have They Don’t Matter which intros with a soft piano sequence as the kicks start to fade in and take over with a contrasting toughness to the soft piano. A deep, almost growling bass line soon joins in and takes the track down into the depths. In the background tight drum patterns form up and deliver a solid rhythmic flow to the sound. Out of the blue the most wonderful vocal cuts through the groove bringing a classy vibe that works perfectly with that piano and those tough beats. Top notch stuff that will definitely be at home in many sets.

Planet Of Two sets out with a cool drum arrangement alongside an equally cool spoken vocal. Big punchy kicks find their way into the sound and take full control before a fantastic walking bass line comes in to dominate. Striking, pitching synth stabs ride along the mid range as the vocals start to become more prominent. The break lets loose with subtle classic stabs that give the track a pure club vibe that will definitely get the floors moving. A brilliantly constructed slice here filled with tight drums, quirky synths, cool vocals and a smooth driving bass, superb stuff.

Tel Aviv based DJ and producer Matan Caspi joins forces with fellow Tel Aviv DJ and producer Roy Lebens on the superb Klubnichka which comes backed up with two brilliant remixes. Matan is undoubtedly one of the most productive & rising electronic music producers under the spotlight. He has been constantly developing his music productions and his work has been internationally exposed and played by many artists and top DJ’s around the globe. He has releases a slew of top tracks on Bonzai Progressive, among others, over the last few years and sits in high regard among his peers. Roy is also an artist on the up, he has seen a raft of releases on many labels and is no stranger to Bonzai Progressive, in 2014 he featured on our Club Traxx Progressive House 1 compilation with his track Alien Boys alongside R3cycle. As well as many solo cuts, Roy and Matan have delivered lots of top notch tracks as a duo, particularly through Matan’s Outta Limits label.

The Original Mix intros with a solid rhythmic drum fuelled workout that will get the floors on the move for sure. Cool vocals sit in the background as a gritty synth rises before dissipating and leaving a fantastic grooving bass line in its wake. The subtle vocal continues and is joined by a cool clubby female vocal that works perfectly with tech house elements of the sound. Various basses are introduced creating a maelstrom of intricate patterns and textures. The female vocal shines on the break alongside those tightly packed drums and percussions which bode well for a smooth rhythmic flow. Excellent stuff you will not want to miss.

Dennis Franchi and studio partner C-Les make up the House Lovin Criminals and their mission is to take various house music fusions and bring them to new heights while retaining a classic vibe. The guys have known each other for a number of years and regularly DJ’d together at various parties. They went their different ways for a time before somehow getting back together and ultimately getting into the studio. A truly fresh approach from this dynamic duo and we have no doubt they will make their mark on the scene in a big way. The House Lovin Criminals debut came in the summer of 2015 with Basetimes and proved to be a dancefloor hit. The remix intros with a super bassy punchy kick that pounds out a solid hit which is joined by a cool open hat and gritty synth shots. The female vocal spurs the bass line that meanders through the sound beautifully delivering a deep solid groove. Cool synths come through on the break and keep the tech vibes flowing which will transfer effortlessly onto the floors.

Slovenian DJ and producer Matevz Crocy aka Crocy returns to remix duty and dishes up another tasty treat for us to get our groove on. His last outing on Bonzai Progressive, Mind featuring Ashley Berndt was a firm favourite among many and continues to prove popular. Here, Crocy takes us deep into tech house with his effort as super tight drums are led by a nice punchy kick and crispy hat combo. Cool synth risers litter the sound alongside perfectly placed vocals that give the groove a definite club vibe. The bass line rattles through the sound with ease and undergoes various transformations, from smooth and well rounded to tough and edgy which works beautifully with the groove. To top off the tech vibe we get some very cool stabby synths that offer an air of retro which will definitely go down very well on the floors.

Hungarian producer Paul Kardos shows up on our Bonzai Progressive imprint with fantastic two tracker, The Workout Song. He marked his Bonzai debut on Green Martian with the wonderful Tres Sonidos EP back in July 2015. Since 2013 Paul has been churning out the quality on OLD SSQL Recordings with a raft of releases focusing in on the Progressive House side of the tracks.

The Workout Song intros with a very cool sequence of subtle melodies that intertwine with harsher synth shots and quirky FX creating a colourful, textured sound. A nice and chunky kick comes through and is joined by a fantastic pulsing synth that sits on the offset. Crispy hats and sharp claps deliver a rhythmic flow to the sound as the layers continue to build. A subtle bass sits back and allows the groove to move while adding just enough oomph to the groove. The short break allows chords to develop that takes the track even deeper into the progressive house abyss.

We Are One sets out with a nice chunky kick and a gently tip tapping hat. A distant synth begins to rise and becomes the big focus in the sound as it mesmerises with a subtle sweetness before crashing out to unleash the true deep traits of the track. Warm chords and a deep reverberating bass take over as we settle into a solid deep progressive groove. Those chords go through a transformation as they are opened up to reveal a striking bright melodic flavour. The break lets the melodies shine and weave intricate patterns that captivate beautifully. A wonderful display of melodies that will definitely appeal to many.

In 2010 he became hooked on progressive house and since then he has infused his prog sounds with wonderful ambient atmospheres while experimenting with new sounds. Over the years he has racked up quite an impressive back catalogue across many labels including Mystic Carousel Records, Revelation Records, DeeperSense Music and Beat Block Records to name just a few.

Airwave returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic, A touch Of Grace. He last appeared here on remix duty for Fatal Error’s Angel’s Arms which went down a treat among many. Previously, in 2014, he released a lot of tracks on BP alongside Phi Phi and others as well as a raft of cuts on Joof Recordings. Also, in the last few years, Laurent has upped his live appearances having played at gigs across the world from Canada to India and the UK to his homeland in Belgium. A truly prolific artist of this age and we are sure there will be plenty more from this guy.

First up we have the Original Mix of A Touch Of Grace which lives up to its name with a smooth, graceful intro filled with punchy kicks, building percussions and warm sweeping pads. A touch of eastern promise is added with subtle plucked strings leading the way. We are soon wrapped up and totally locked into the sound as a wonderfully rich vocal takes over and captivates while raising the hairs on the back of your neck. The music takes on a progressive trance persona as a driving, chugging bass keeps the energy levels up. Tough and gritty acid lines weave their way through contrasting melodic strings and gated synths. A truly complex structure that melds together beautifully resulting in a definite dance floor destroyer.

The Deep And Dark Mix of A Touch Of Grace is up next and takes us in a slightly different direction. Big and powerful kicks sit alongside a myriad of percussions and provide the intro which builds up with a crescendo into a deep, driving groove. A superb low end bassline holds the track up perfectly as gritty lines begin to form up all around. An Eastern flavour is evident with those beautiful melodic plucks and captivating raspy vocals. Intensity rises with every phrase and new sounds added that take us further into the groove before a short respite on the break that unleashes more of those sweet melodies. Another epic monster from Airwave that will set floors alight all over.

Reus Calling sets off with a cool drum led intro that sets out a solid rhythm complete with nice chunky kicks. In the background, very subtle, haunting voices can be heard which are soon overlayed by much richer pads and strings. A cool melodic synth comes through and sets the scene for an epic ride into an uplifting progressive journey. This is what Airwave is all about, huge intense sounds that feed off each other and forms into an engrossing soundscape that you do not want to end. Definitely a big floor stomper here, you need this in your box.
