RUSLAN VASHKEVICH – BODHISATTVA FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with the impressive Bodhisattva. Last time out we saw Ashuar gain a lot of support and no doubt this one will be no exception. The original mix of Bodhisattva intros with a punchy kick as sweeping FX cascade in the background. Subtle percussive elements come through as winding synths fade in along with a superb, deep rolling bassline that drives the groove beautifully. The track settles into a deep progressive vibe that really grabs a hold of you and locks you in with its obsessive qualities. On the break that bassline takes over and hypnotises as it fades in and out to the backdrop of eerie synths and distant spoken vocal. A nod to the hedy days of progressive here that will definitely grab the attention of many jocks no doubt.

AUDIO NOIR – NOW & ZEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

One of Bonzai’s most prolific artists delivers his stunning studio album, Now & Zen, filled to the brim of top quality original works and remixes. Audio Noir has certainly made Bonzai Progressive his home over the last number of years. He has racked up a hugely impressive back catalogue which covers many forms of music styles. His diversity has driven him to be able to complete this album. He draws on some of his past remixes and transforms them into his own Zen style, and he looks to the future with outstanding original works. This album will take you on a journey through beautifully constructed soundscapes that will allow you to detach from reality and create a sense of enlightenment. A much anticipated collection of works from an outstanding talent, definitely not to be missed.

The structure of the album brings out a beautifully crafted narrative that lulls us into its blissful realms. 17 tracks are huddled together with each bringing their own Zen like state. Audio Noir has selected some of the finest progressive tracks to be converted into this Zen structure. Tracks from Dark Soul Project & Mathov, Phi Phi, Airwave, DJ Fire, Samotarev featuring Max Magnum, Matan Caspi, Rise and Fall, Alexey Lisin & Ange and Cordoba are transformed into totally immersive and mesmerizing constructs that allow us to dig deep into our imagination. The attention to detail is sublime and ranges from subtle melodic phrases to full on intense, climactic soundscapes.

A large portion of the album is made up of Audio Noir’s original works, and he enlists the help of two outstanding vocalists to really get the goosebumps on the rise. Natalie Major is brought in for vocal duty on the wonderful Story Of Our Lives, a truly captivating track that intros with a very soft and deep bass tone. The vocals come through early on and straight away you get hooked on to the attractive sounds. In the background, rich cascading strings offer the perfect balance of both high and low frequencies. Quite simply a beautiful track.

Australian Epic delivers an abstract look into music with a mixture of contrasting sounds that converge in perfect harmony. From glitchy to warm rising pads and deep basses, the track builds beautifully into a raw almost urbanised sound complete with a tough edged drum section. Definitely something for the late night sessions.

Love intros with a tribalistic drum arrangement before cool plonky piano notes come through. A softer side develops with the introduction of beautiful strings that sweep through the sound. A deep bass walks through the groove as sensual vocals are unleashed. A deeply though provoking track, brilliant.

The Hawthorne Effect delves deep with a superb hypnotic trait that reaches out the deeper recesses of the mind. A melancholic sound prevails as wonderful sounds converge to the backdrop of a fantastic drum sequence. In contrast, a melodic piano phrase plays the track out and leaves you wanting much more.

Lena Grig joins Audio Noir on Like The Wind which intros with a cool bass pulse that leads up to a superb percussions arrangement filled with crisp hats and claps. A big 80’s synth sound peeks out and the strong vocal from Lena combines perfectly. A much deeper vibe takes over for the duration as the lower end is given free reign on this expertly crafted number.

Furō intros with cool percussions amid a plethora of superb FX that sweep through the track and lead us up to a fantastic synth riff. We are teased with the notion of a pounding kick drum as mini risers takes us through each section of the track. A world of melody is unleashed as the myriad of sound blends perfectly to the pulsing bass that dominates. A wonderful track full of anticipation and energy that will definitely grab your attention.

Navagio Beach rounds up the album and does it in style. The track bursts into life with a crash that fades out to reveal the most beautiful melodic piano sequence alongside soft gated synths, sweeping pads and the mesmerizing action of the sea. Quite simply, stunning.

RUSLAN VASKEVICH – BODHISATTVA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with the impressive Bodhisattva. Last time out we saw Ashuar gain a lot of support and no doubt this one will be no exception. The original mix of Bodhisattva intros with a punchy kick as sweeping FX cascade in the background. Subtle percussive elements come through as winding synths fade in along with a superb, deep rolling bassline that drives the groove beautifully. The track settles into a deep progressive vibe that really grabs a hold of you and locks you in with its obsessive qualities. On the break that bassline takes over and hypnotises as it fades in and out to the backdrop of eerie synths and distant spoken vocal. A nod to the hedy days of progressive here that will definitely grab the attention of many jocks no doubt.

The Breakz mix offers up a much tougher outing to its more subdued sibling. Huge break beats dominate alongside a driving bassline that is beefed up with accompanying sub bass and gritty synths. The percussive elements take the frantic approach as they get right up in your face and keep the rhythm on solid ground. A nice deviation from four to the floor that will get any room energised.

AIRWAVE – A TOUCH OF GRACE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

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.
