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.

A.ERYOMIN – YOU’LL NEVER KNOW WHY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian producer Alexander Eryomin aka A.Eryomin returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb You’ll Never Know Why which comes with a plethora of top notch remixes from top producers within the Bonzai sphere.

Since then he has been churning out quality vibes on various labels as well as featuring on many compilations. Great to see him back with this stomper which we’ve no doubt will grab a lot of attention.

You’ll Never Know Why has many strands that combine beautifully into a solid slice of progressive house. A distinct retro theme runs through the sound that will definitely grab a lot attention in today’s scene. Nice and chunky kick drums are joined by crispy hats and a superbly crafted percussion arrangement giving off a cool rhythmic flow.

Soft vocals add a real character to the sound while an array of FX give the track cool textures. A definite must have right here.

Accompanying the original we have a host of top remix artists to whet the progressive appetite.

JOHN LEAD – DOUBLE JAY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

John Lead aka Lisbon, Portugal based DJ and producer Joao Apell marks his Bonzai Progressive debut with the superb Double Jay and comes backed up with a fantastic remix from Manu Riga. John Lead has been churning out quality cuts for a number of years now and his style is not restricted to any one genre. His goal is to be innovative and combine different musical elements for a unique sound every time. A strong passion for music gives Joao the drive to pursue music as he does now. His music takes us on a journey, telling a story along the way and drawing out many emotions from the listener. Great to have him on board and we certainly hope to see more soon.

The Original Mix intros with a wonderful warm synth pad that sets the scene for this one perfectly as we embark on a mesmeric journey filled with all the wonders of electronica. A steady flow of solid beats dish out a smooth rhythm over a meandering bassline that delivers a laidback groove. The big hitter here though are the impeccable synths. Cascading arps and piercing synths in various shapes and sizes ring out that captivate the imagination with subtle melodics and powerful note changes. A superb cut that is definitely not to be missed.

The ever present Manu Riga delights with another one of his sublime remixes with its groovy beat and surreal, mystical sound. As with previous remixes and originals, Manu Riga never lets up on the quality front and even though his style has changed to be directed more towards the dance floors this is even more true. Good things continue for Manu Riga in 2016, a new EP – Unstoppable (October)as well as numerous remixes and future original material are all still in the pipeline. His craftsmanship is still very much revered by his peers and he remains an inspiration to artists and music fans alike. His radioshow Escape continues to gather pace delivering the very best sounds every month on Progressive Beats. Stay tuned for more, there’s plenty to come. The remix here intros with a solid kick drum to get things moving as warm basses start to fade up alongside cool arpeggio sequences. As we are lured into the deep prog vibe, sweeping accordion pads add wonderful textures on top of the infectious groove. The break throws up some very nice vocals giving the track a lot of character and depth. An absolute stomper once again from this guy that will sit perfectly in any set.

His debut came in February 2016 – Never Give Up – and gained a great deal of support. Great to see him back once more and hopefully more to come in the future.

Momento is a solid progressive workout that mesmerizes with its warm grooves filled with lush basses and a tight drum arrangement. The progressive vibes ooze out of this one as beautifully tweaked synths deliver that rich sound alongside the hypnotic bassline. The break delivers a short respite from the full on nature of the track before we’re slammed right back into the groove for the duration. Top notch stuff once more from this guy, a must have no doubt.

Pulso intros with a muted kick drum and crispy hi hat combi that set up a nice flowing rhythmic slice. The kicks get their punch soon after leading the track on its path deep into tech. A powerful bassline is the main player here and it dominates the groove beautifully alongside that super tight drum arrangement. Scattered synths and swirling pads create some very nice textures in the sound, but it’s that solid bassline that will get you hooked. One for the late night sessions right here, not to be missed.
