MATT HOLLIDAY – UNDERWORLD (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matt Holliday is back once again at Bonzai Progressive with another stunning slice entitled Underworld. These last few years have been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride for Matt, on top of moving to a new country, he found himself in great demand after a plethora of quality releases and taking the helm at JOOF Aura. 2016 has been a huge year after what has been described by many as a ‘killer set’ at the Luminosity Trance Gathering in Amsterdam, and the release of his long awaited studio album on Phase Of Life. It’s always great to see this guys work drop into the mailbox and we’ve no doubt we’ll be seeing lots more in the future. In the meantime check out this latest offering and don’t forget to tune in to Matt’s radioshow Ethnoscience alongside Manu Riga, the first Saturday of each month on Progressive Beats Radio.

Underworld could be considered as some of Matt’s deepest, darkest works. Right from the start we are drawn into a murky and moody sound that is steeped in glorious low end basses and sublime pads and FX. A fantastic ethnically charged vocal runs through the track delivering a chilling narrative given the tone of the voice. Quite a minimal piece with a lot of character and raw grooves that will definitely keep those late night sessions moving.

Belfast’s Louis Irvine is up on remix duties and this one also marks his Bonzai Progressive debut. Louis normally resides over on our Progrez offshoot where he dishes out quality techno grooves, the latest of which – Alpas EP – is performing very well indeed. As this is Louis’ first remix he set out to deliver a bad ass mutha, and we think he’s done just that. After a bit of trial and error he found the path he wanted to take and decided to throw in the vocal which definitely takes things up a notch or two. He was thinking big on this one and he has certainly captured that big festival vibe which is sure to please many. The remix intros with thunderous kick drum that would be right at home at any festival and its massive sound system. Bright crispy hats cut through the low frequencies as hypnotic percussions start to fade up. The techno fuelled groove settles into its mesmeric state while some very cool vocals come through. An absolute stomper no doubt that will tear up any floor.

CHRISTOPHER HERMANN – SANDS OF MARRAKECH (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

DJ and producer Christopher Hermann aka Kristof Hermann returns for his third stint on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Sands Of Marrakech. Kristof has established himself as a top artist on the scene with releases on various labels and appearances on several compilations. It’s nice to see him back at BP and we’ve no doubt we’ll be seeing much more in the future.

Sands Of Marrakech intros with a warm kick drum and subtle percussion arrangement that draws you in to its shuffling rhythmic sequence. A deep probing bassline comes through to take the reins as we are led deep into the progressive world. Cosmic synths play out surreal melodies creating an almost dreamlike state that you will find yourself completely hooked on. A complex sound design offers up a mystical take on the ancient city of Marrakech making this a definite must have track.

Athens Lights takes us on a sublime journey filled with wonderfully crafted deep basses and cascading arps that fill the spectrum beautifully. The intro delivers a solid progressive vibe right from the off as a tame kick drum sits behind a superb bassline and those mesmerizing arps. The track gives off an almost utopian vibe as those synths combine. A cool percussion section generates smooth rhythms that marry up perfectly with the majestic sounds of Greece. Deeply hypnotic and Ethnically charged, a superb slice of prog that is not to be missed.

MATAN CASPI – DISTANT MUSE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

For the last number of years we have seen nothing but the very best sounds from Matan Caspi, and today is no exception. Here he delivers his latest offering, Distant Muse which comes backed up with remixes from Manu Riga and Persya. Apart from giving us super fine cuts Matan is running the label Outta Limits together with his good friend and production partner Stan Kolev. He is also busy with touring and concentrating on his future productions, where you will find original, raw and innovative material. His last outing for Bonzai Progressive – Brain-Storm was well received and this was followed up by a double appearance on the ADE 2016 Compilation from Bonzai. All of the above doesn’t leave a doubt that Matan’s music will be heard on the most popular dance floors around the world.

The Original Mix is a sublime trek deep into the progressive sound, full of wonderful subtleties and nuanced elements that combine beautifully to bring that rich sound evident in Matan’s work. Chunky kick drums lead the way as crispy hi hats and shuffling percussions form up alongside a deep and lush bassline. A myriad of FX and one shot synth hits are perfectly placed for maximum effect enhancing the stabby, more prominent layers. On the break we are treated to some excellent key work that bring in rich melodies before the synths are slowed down and then sped up to a brilliant climax and the back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch stuff indeed.

Manu Riga is up first with his Progrezz Remix and in true Manu Riga fashion, he knocks it outta the park. An extremely busy and in demand artist, this guy remains consistent in his delivery of top quality sounds. His last outing – Unstoppable proved to be popular on the floors and various charts and we’ve no doubt this remix will follow suit. The remix definitely goes straight to the floors with a nice rhythmic drum arrangement along with cool FX and a subtle underlying melody. The track builds nicely with the bassline shoring up the dancey groove and the tougher edged synths keeping things moving. The break is where the magic happens here as a beautifully serene vocal captivates the mind and draws you in deeper before those chunky kicks take us back into full on mode. A must have no doubt.

Bologna based producer Persya returns to BP with a wonderfully constructed progressive house remix. His last outing – Heide EP – was back in June 2016 and made a very good impact on the scene. The intro allows us to dive head first into the deep groove on offer as a fantastic atmospheric sound is generated. Hypnotic melodies draws us in even more as chunky kick drums lead the charge. A deep droning bassline dominates the low end as the intensity increases. The solid groove becomes so immersive you are lost in its ethereal grasp and on the break this is more true. A stunning slice that will not disappoint.

BTG’s debut on Bonzai was back in May 2016 with Eddy’s Theme which proved popular among many and we’ve no doubt that this latest cut will follow suit.

Some Seed Of Love is a wonderfully lush and deep progressive groove that captures the imagination wonderfully. Nice and chunky kick drums lead the way deep rooted basses pulsate through the track. Tight drums and bright crispy hats deliver a solid rhythmic groove that will keep the floors moving for sure. A teasing acid line lurks around gliding effortlessly through the track as melodic pads sweep across. Top notch stuff that you do not want to miss.

My Little Tree Of Paradise intros with a punchy kick drum that is joined by shuffling hats and a rising mesmeric arp. A musical bassline glides up and down the scale with fantastic note changes that add an extra dynamic to the sound. Cool percussions keep the rhythm moving becoming prominent on the break where we are treated to a fine display of melodic sounds before the beats kick back in for the duration. A definite must have no doubt.

You’ll Never Know Why has many strands that combine beautifully into a solid slice of progressive house.
