DARK SOUL PROJECT & MATHOV FEATURING FE MALEFIZ – AIN’T NO MELODIES LEFT FOR ME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dark Soul Project & Mathov enlist the stunning vocals of Fe Malefiz on the superb Ain’t No Melodies Left For Me which comes backed up with three fantastic remixes. Dark Soul Project marks his full debuts on Bonzai after his track Feels Like Heaven featured on our Club Traxx Progressive House compilation. He brings a wealth of talents to the table as his impressive back catalogue will attest. Mathov returns after his highly regarded Dark Activity was released in early November with support pouring in from all quarters. Since leaving uplifting trance behind he is definitely causing a stir in the progressive world with his smooth grooves. German singer Fe Malefiz provides the vocals for this release and it’s clear why she has been chosen as you will find out. Fe has worked with many artists over the years including Martin Merkel among others.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a cool drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks, sharp hats and rhythmic percussions. The track breaks to reveal a lush bass that sits perfectly within the groove and becomes the mainstay of the track. We get our first glimpse of the vocal here with its haunting tones and melodic phrases. The groove settles in with a strong progressive edge that will keep the heads nodding. The main break unleashes the vocal as it sweeps throughout before the Bjork-esque song comes through just at the right time to round up this absolute stunner of a track. A definite must have.

On remix duty we have Tallinn’s own Zas & Sanze aka Mindgamers. We haven’t seen the guys for a while as they have been busy with DJing and other projects, but we know they will be unleashing their latest works soon which we are all excited about. Here the guys do their thing and they do it well as always. Tight progressive vibes right from the off, muted kicks are joined by a fading in bass alongside cool FX. The kicks transform into chunky hits as the bass warms to become a lush grooving sequence. Fe’s vocal comes through beautifully here and blends so perfectly with the sounds around it. The groove is captivating as it lulls you into its grip with the help of sharp melodic sequences that add character and contrast to the sound. Another fine offering from the guys and sure to be a main feature in many sets.

Kintar returns for remix duty here at Bonzai Progressive with his unique blend of prog house that we know and love. DJing is a big part of his career, playing all over the world, you’d think he wouldn’t have the time for producing but he finds the time and always gets it done with great results. Here he intros the track with a fantastic low end kick, crispy hats and snappy claps. A deep resonating bassline shores up the rear as the layers build bringing surreal sweeping pads that lead up to some cool, subtle melodic flavours. The vocal is used sparingly with great effect as the anticipation builds with the help of an intense piano chord. Wonderful stuff out of Argentina and a track you have got to have.

Audio Noir never stops, he relentlessly churns out top quality productions and remixes to the delight of many. His most recent stint was Reworked Volume 2 from his album Almost Famous which have been getting fantastic support from many quarters. Much more to come out of Australia which we always look forward to. Here he gives us his Rekonstruction mix which takes the tempo back a bit, getting into a more laidback vibe. The intro is a wonderful cacophony of glitched FX and atmospheric sequences which combine beautifully before a superb warm bass breaks things up and provides that almost downtempo quality. The kicks sit mid range and allow you to become immersed in their beat while cool crispy hats bring a rhythmic flow to the sound. The vocal keeps the track firmly on course with its wonderfully haunting and rich tones. Subtle melodies play out as you become hypnotized by this sublime progressive groove. Yet again we get hooked by an Audio Noir cut, not to be missed.

AUDIO NOIR – ALMOST FAMOUS REWORKED – VOLUME 2 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Since Audio Noir released his debut album, Almost Famous, things have been gaining pace, which led us to gathering top remix artists to work their skills on the superb tracks within the album. Back in the summer of this year Reworked Volume 1 hit the floors running and on the back of that we present to you another round of top quality remixes with Reworked Volume 2 comprising five, on fire producers doing their thing. In the meantime, Audio Noir continues his reign over deep progressive sounds with an upcoming remix on a new Phi & Airwave collaboration as well as a remix on Thorin’s Secrets and appearances on various compilations. Always worth keeping an eye on this outstandingly talented artist.

Swedish four piece Inkfish are first up on remix duty with their Promise Nothing Remix of One More Night. The intro comes in with a gnarly, raw organic flavour as heavy keys and grainy flutes set the tone. Punchy kicks soon follow alongside a fantastic distorted vocal sample that really captures the organic nature of the sound beautifully. A smooth rhythmic flow is established with the percussive elements and is further enhanced by a subtle bass that sits back allowing that vocal sample to keep control of the track. Superb stuff that will be a welcome addition to those darker, deeper sets.

Pole Folder & Cedric Piret are up next with their remix of Under The Sun. It’s been a while since we last saw these guys, their last outing was on remix duty for Quincy’ In Balance back at the start of this year. Since then the guys have been working on other projects as well a DJing at various events. Here the remix gets going with some smooth bass tones alongside a steady building rhythmic percussion sequence. Nice chunky kicks get the progressive vibes flowing as melodic phrases ebb and flow through the track. A deep-rooted bassline adds to the darker element of the sound as we are locked into this wonderful groove. The break takes a surreal sidestep with those melodies converging into a beautiful sequence that leads back into the main track. A truly epic ride with deep and thoughtful imagination, not to be missed.

East Cafe aka Gabor Kaszas debuts on Bonzai Progressive with his superb remix of Midnight Til Morning. Gabor pride himself on producing intelligent sounding progressive house and has been doing so for several years. His works can be found on labels like Silk, Mistique Music, Digital Sensation and Morphosis with support coming from all quarters. Here he utilises his skills to churn out a masterful slice of prog goodness. The intro eases us into the groove with a nice and smooth percussive laden sequence which leads up to a grainy bass synth that sets the scene perfectly. The vocal sits off the main groove beautifully and captivates with its intriguing narrative. The layers continue to build and bring fleeting melodies as well as a pulsing bass that becomes a big feature. Deep and smooth progressive grooves that will draw the attention of many for sure.

Bonzai regular Yuriy From Russia delivers another of his stunning cuts we have become accustomed to with his remix of La Polaris. After a summer of multiple remixes, we look forward to more from this guy. The intro boasts a swelling, rich pad sequence with a harsh clap on the upbeat, a nice well-rounded kick is joined by a wonderful pulsating bass that fills the sound beautifully. Intricate melodies burst out of the deeper groove as arps speckle the sound. A stunning trek into deep progressive vibes that does not disappoint.

Antonio Citarella wraps up this pack with his superb remix of Morphine. We last saw Antonio on our Progrez imprint with Traveller, which was very well received among many. Here he delivers a truly sublime prog experience as the intro lets loose with a metallic arp sequence on top of some lush synth licks and a quite subtle kick. Percussions form up and bring a solid rhythm that locks you into the groove beautifully as those arps relentlessly drive on. Overall, the sound seems quite minimal but a lot of layers really beefs things up giving off a fuller sound. Top notch stuff yet again from Antonio and a definite must in any set.
