EXTREME TRAX – SOUND AND FUTURE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Extreme Trax is back after a long hiatus with the superb Sound And Future which comes in original and dub flavours as well as a remix from the on form Audio Noir. Extreme Trax is responsible for a multitude of Progressive Trance and Trance hits in the late 90’s and early 00’s on XTC and Bonzai Trance Progressive with tracks such as Don’t Hold Back, Monday’s Blue and Final Fantasy. Now headed up by the legendary Yves Deruyter and given a 2015 makeover we are sure that this will strike chord with old and new fans alike.

First up we have the Original Mix of Sound And Future which gives off a real live sounding particularly through the drums with their session like qualities. The drum arrangement is big feature here and really gets the feet moving with their tight construction and solid rhythm. A raw sounding organic bass chugs through the sound beautifully and dominates for the duration. On top of the bass we have some very cool synth leads that ooze early 90’s flavour and sit so perfectly in the sound alongside sweeping pads and climactic risers. Stunning work from Mr Deruyter that will surely have the discerning clubbers wanting more.

The Dub mix is a stripped version of its big brother, we still get that live feel from the drums and that bass just dominates with its chugging driving force. In fact the bass has an even bigger place on this mix as the synths take a slight step back. But do not despair as those expertly crafted leads are still in effect and still carry their big lead qualities. Look out for the nod to the 80’s in the form of some very cool FX that lay hidden within the sound. Top notch stuff and a must have track for sure.

Audio Noir is up on remix duty with his EuroBeat remix and he really does do the original some justice with a sprinkling of his own trademark sound. Recently Audio Noir has confessed to changing things up a bit in his productions, he started toying with Electro and 80’S sounds and this remix is providing the perfect platform to showcase this slight change in direction. Nice chunky kicks are joined by stuttering crispy hats and snappy snares alongside delayed claps. A beautifully deep piano chord takes us up the I Feel Love styled rolling bassline that just sits perfectly within the 80’s inspired drums and percussions. Sweeping pads and rising FX complete with laser sounds litter the groove as we lose ourselves in this medley of synthtastic sounds. In true Audio Noir style we are treated to a sublime break that unleashes sweet melodic phrases before a sci-fi riser takes us back into the main groove. Superb stuff yet again from this guy you will not want to miss.

HADY TAREK – THE BOAT EFFECT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Hady Tarek is back with his stunning two tracker entitled The Boat Effect. We last saw Hady back in 2014, firstly with his Bonzai debut Night Shift and later on with remixes for Phi Phi & Airwave on Finesse and Crocy feat Croty on Recht. As always he delivered the goods on each occasion and this time around he holds true with a sublime trek into the tech side of progressive.

The Boat Effect intros with a tough punchy kick with sharp distorted hats and claps that lead up to a sub shaking bassline that rolls right through the track and providing the driving force of the sound. The track breaks to reveal a plethora of retro styled synth stabs and chords that give a real edge to the sound bringing it very close to the Techno side. The result is an energetically charged slice of dark matter that you simply must get hold of, not to be missed by any means.

Next up we have Restless which sets off with a big and ballsy kick that pounds out a solid beat alongside rhythmic hats and tight drums and percussions. A deep probing bass swells up from the depths and takes control of the sound while teasing chords fade through. The track breaks and unleashes a very cool array of synths and chords that set the tone for our journey into this darkened world. A nod to the early Techno sounds is evident and sits perfectly in this contemporary construction. A hint of melody seeps through and keeps the track within the progressive realm while retaining its dark roots. A must have track that will definitely spruce up any set.

PHI PHI & RODDY REYNAERT – ATLAN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Phi Phi and Roddy Reynaert join forces again to bring us the superb three tracker Atlan. They teamed up in 2014 for Platinum on Infonika Recordings to a great reception. Phi Phi is no stranger to these shores, he’s been cutting tracks under Bonzai’s umbrella for many years alongside the likes of Philip Van Mullem, Airwave, Greg D, Yves Deruyter and M.I.K.E.. In recent years he got into the studio with Airwave with jaw dropping results. French DJ and producer Roddy makes his Bonzai debut, although he has been around the scene for a while. He has tracks released on Anjunabeats, Fuzzy Recordings, Intricate Records and Ifonika Recordings. He is definitely making waves with his style and he was snapped up for remix duty on DedRekoning feat Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Only Child on Perfecto Records.

Atlan delivers a solid progressive groover with tight beats and a cool rolling bassline. The track builds steadily and keeps you locked in as various layers are revealed. An intensity comes through on the synths which are backed up by some rising pads real cool vocal FX. On the break a plucky arp takes over as those rich strings add to the melodies before the track reaches climax and we are thrust back into the main groove. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Believe intros with a nice punchy kick alongside a cool drum pattern and crispy hats and soon descends into a deep grooving progressive monster with a dose of gritty sounds, winding synths and an aggressive bassline that dominates throughout. Cool voices sweep around and contrasts beautifully with the deeper elements and bright melodic arps. A real solid slice of prog here that is a definite must have track.

Mayhem is an obsessive in your face 4×4 track that delivers a solid punch with its no-nonsense kicks and filtered percussions. The bass is where it’s at here, deep rooted pulsating notes are drawn up form below and really take command of the sound. A tribalistic vibe comes through with the wonderful drum arrangement and tight patterns. This one is a must for those late night sessions, not to be missed.

THORSTEN HAMMER – BLACK HOLE EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

German DJ producer Thorsten Hammer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb two tracker Black Hole EP. Thorsten grew up with the early 90’s German sound and frequented clubs such as Omen and Dorian Gray, this is when he really fell in love with electronic music. After many years of DJing he decided he would try to find his own unique sound. In 2011 he started up his own label, Ametist Records which focused on bringing in new talent and Tech House and Deep House with room left for some Techno. Aside from Ametist his tracks have been released on a hugely impressive amount of labels. Delighted to have him on board.

We kick off with Black Hole Breakfast with its bright intro packed full of snappy snares, crispy hats and punchy kicks. A deep, probing bass soon follows with an accompanying chord to get the groove flowing. Cool vocal one shots litter the sound and give a nice added texture to the vibe. In the background various pads and strings are on the rise and give way to a warbling riff that soon dominates for the duration. A real nice slice of deep Tech House that you will not want to miss.

Soda intros with a nice crispy vibe as various hats and cymbals combine before a punchy kick takes over. Rich pads and strings take over on the first break and bring a beautiful atmospheric vibe which is backed up by a very cool singing vocal and a sinister deep spoken vocal. The track settles into a deep groover complete with a phat bassline that drives the track brilliantly. An expertly crafted slice of prog tech with wonderful contrasting vibes, a must have.
