ERIC KANZLER – CIGU (BONZAI BASIKS)

German producer and DJ Eric Kanzler is back to Basiks with the impressive three tracker, Cigu. Over the years Eric has worked with many artists on various projects, since 2012 he began going solo and performing live. He has a knack of getting his soul right into his music and whipping his audience into a frenzy. Here at Bonzai Basiks we are always excited when his tracks drop into the mailbox. His last outing for us came back in 2014 with Exercise Of Life which gained a lot of support across the board.

Cigu rolls up with a full on tech house flavour that grabs your attention right from the off with its solid, tight beats and deep probing bass. Cool percussive elements provide a steady flowing rhythm as a scattering of one shot FX pop up throughout. We get a nice surprising twist on the breaks with the introduction of an ethnic sound that adds a cool character to the track. Very nice, polished sound that will keep the floors grooving no doubt.

Neurotisch intros with a cool bass heavy theme as various drum and percussion layers form up to deliver a real tight and beautifully crafted arrangement that carries a cool rhythmic flow. That bass dominates as it probes its way through the sound alongside subdued kicks. At the midway mark we are treated to some stunning murky acidified stabs that add some very cool textures to the sound. A superb, tough edged Tech groove that will definitely feature in many sets for sure.

Welcome In The Club sets off with a nice bright intro with crispy hats and sharp claps that are soon joined by punchy kicks and a proper sub shaking bassline. The bass draws you in with its hypnotic groove and locks you down for the duration. On the break we get some real cool synths that tease just before the track gets back into its deep rooted groove. A must have track in your box that will not disappoint.

ALEX WOLF & CLAAS HERRMANN – WORMHOLE EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Alex Wolf and Claas Herrmann join forces on the techno fuelled Wormhole EP. These two young German producers have been around for a while now and have worked together in the past on Captiol Input. Alex started out at a young age and found himself immersed in Minimal Techno vibes. In 2011 he began to produce his own material and gained a lot of support with his first release Drugs All Night. Soon after he embarked on a new journey when he got the DJing bug which led him to play at lots of top parties. Claas also started out in music when he was young, his first release Unknown Groove was snapped up by many labels and spread around the globe with much support. He also DJ’s regularly alongside some of the world’s top jocks.

Wormhole is a straight up techno stomper with big chunky beats and a hypnotic groove that locks you right in for the duration. A deep probing bass rocks the speakers with its raw power and sits perfectly at the lower end. Cool FX litter the background and pair up brilliantly with a tight drum arrangement. Definitely a big hitter that will dominate the floors.

Vortex goes in for the kill with a tight construction filled to the brim with punchy kicks and shuffling hats that dish out a solid rhythmic flow. The bassline dominates in a simplistic style that hooks you into its grip for a deep and groovy ride. Grungy synths fill out the break as a riser takes us back into full on mode, top notch stuff you will not want to miss.

MADBALL – PEOPLE COMMENCE (BONZAI BASIKS)

Madball debuts on Basiks with the dirty tech house grooves of People Commence which comes in original and instrumental flavours.People Commence will eat you up and spit you out with its tough techy edges that scream dirty house vibes. Punchy kicks and crispy hats keep the rhythmic element in full flow as gritty synths with an oldskool vibe wreak havoc. A deep bass shores up the groove alongside a dark and sinister vocal that chills to the bone with a little help from some cool eerie background sounds. The break unleashes more of that top notch vocal and takes us to the climax where we get slammed right back into this dirty groove. A definite floor monster here that will be a big draw among many no doubt.

The Instrumental Mix strips out the vocal from the main body of the track and leaves us with a superb driving slice of tech house with top notch oldskool flavours.

SIRIUS BROWN – CLICK TIME (BONZAI BASIKS)

Sirius Brown debuts on Basiks with the pacey techno stomper Click Time which comes backed with a superb remix from Van Czar. Sirius has released some top gems over the last few years and is also the A&R for Backspin Records. As well as producing he is also a fantastic pro DJ, spinning at top clubs and parties. Nice to have him on board here and hope to see more in the future.

The Original Mix gets right into full on tech mode with a tough kick and snappy clap combo alongside bright open hats. A very cool probing bass makes its way through the sound as we go deeper into techno grooves. In the background a rising pad sweeps across the sound as tube like synths rattle around. Higher pitched string bring an air of intensity as a fantastic vocal snippet floats around. A real stomping groover here that will light up the floors no doubt.

One of Bonzai’s most prolific and hardest working DJ and producer Van Czar steps up for remix duty. Already in 2015 Van is making waves with his tight pumping DJ sets to his usual top quality productions such as his latest offering, Rumba EP among others on various labels. One highlight we know Van is very proud of is his first cut to vinyl through our Bonzai Worx Vol 5 which featured the superb Sugar Love. On the remix we get an injection of Vans signature tight drum patterns and attention to detail we have come to love. Big, pounding kicks dominate alongside a monster bassline that is complimented by a classic styled acid line that runs right through the sound. Old skool styled drums and claps keep the groove flowing and the addition of the vocal snippets works beautifully. Top notch yet again from Van and we will no doubt be seeing a lot more from this guy soon.

VAN CZAR – RUMBA EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

The ever impressive Van Czar gets his techno groove on at Bonzai Basiks once again with his Rumba EP complete with two brilliant remixes. A truly gifted artist, Van devotes his time to music in many ways. His very successful Bonzai Basik Beats Spain, which can be heard on multiple internet radio stations, will have passed its 65th episode by the time of this release. On top of that he is also releasing material as Cysxe as well as various collaborations. Just recently he got a vinyl release on our Bonzai Worx Volume 5 series with Love Trip featuring Sugar Love. Still a lot more to come from this guy, so stay tuned.

The Original Mix intros with a nice, big punchy kick with a healthy dosing of claps that really get the rhythm flowing. The Techno just oozes out of the sound with sharp synth stabs joining forces with cool vocals. The rhythms keep with the title of the track and bring out that rumba-esque groove which ties in perfectly given Van’s African roots and his current Spanish residence. A nice mixture of cultures that has been captured beautifully in this driving Techno sound. A definite must have you won’t want to miss.

Fran Navaez returns to Basiks with his remix and really darkens the tones beautifully. His last appearance was with the fantastic Feeling back at the start of 2014 as well as a guest spot on Bonzai Basik Betas. On the remix a monster kick drum resides over the proceedings as crispy hats break through. A deep bass rattles right through the sound as it lurks on the low end. Sweeping FX litter the groove and give way to the superb synth hits that pop up all around. A tight drum arrangement ensures a solid groove that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

Onofrio Conte joins in on the remix duties with his superb slice. Onofrio has cropped up across various labels under the Bonzai umbrella including Sounds R Us Recordings, Eyepatch Recordings and Bonzai Basiks. His works are well renowned for their energetic vibes and we are never disappointed. Great to see him return to these shores and hope for much more in the future. The remix intros with a subdued kick drum as a throbbing, deep bassline takes control. Bright, crispy hats cut through the low frequencies like a knife providing a great contrast to the sound. Shuffling percussions begin to form up alongside a cool stab as that bassline dishes out its driving force. The break throws up a surreal pad sequence before we get thrust right back into the main sound for the duration. Another gem from Onofrio that will no doubt feature heavily in many sets.

INSECT SOCIETY – MADE IN SWEDEN (BONZAI BASIKS)

It’s been a while since we last saw Hungarian producer and composer Insect Society at Bonzai Basiks, the wait is over as we have the newest cut entitled Made In Sweden, which comes with a top notch remix. And Cleopatra Wept was his last outing which went down a treat and prompted a call up to remix duty for Van Czar’s Despote EP. Hopefully much more to come from this talented artist in the future.

The Original Mix intros with a cool robotic voice that trails off into a deep drone that rises up through the sound beautifully as huge punchy kicks are joined by a selection of sharp percussions and top class FX. The bassline is where it’s at here, a solid, driving groove becomes the mainstay of the track and blends perfectly with the rising arps. The arps take on a retro theme with acid undertones filtered in and on the break this is complimented by stunning FX that pop up out of nowhere. A truly hypnotic and driving techno groove that will be a most welcome addition in any set.

The OSC 1 Mix takes on most of the Original Mix’s flavour, the driving bass groove and pounding beats all remain alongside the robotic voice and wonderful FX. The main difference is in the arps, here they are taken up an octave and weave a slightly different pattern. That retro theme is still in play and gives a nod to the old skool Techno sound. The perfect extension to the original and equally a must have addition to your box.

PETRI PETRO – CONNECTICS EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Belgian DJ and producer Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro makes a welcome return to Basiks with his four tracker, Connectics EP. It was back in April 2014 since we last got a taste of his brand of deep Tech and Techno on his Side Effects EP. Great to see him back and no doubt we will be seeing more in the future.

We kick off with Connectics which hooks you in with fantastic bass heavy kicks and pulsing offset bass that form a truly dark Techno vibe. A simple synth note fades in with an echoed aftertaste and dominates with its hypnotic groove. Subtle arps litter the groove also and really enhance the textures of the sound. On the break percussions take over before we get slammed right back into the mix for the duration. The perfect addition to those banging sets you will not want to miss.

Outline intros with a big chunky kick that will hit you right in the chest with its pounding groove. Crispy hats fade in alongside a wall of noise that will eat right into your brain. Intensity rises and falls throughout as the layers build on this stomper while gritty synths fill the space and give a real Techno flavour to the sound. This hard hitting super tight track has a sinister nature that will not let go, top notch stuff.

Next up is Syndrome which intros with warm punchy kicks and a mixture of shuffling hats and harsh percussions. Eerie synths captivate as they weave through the groove with expertly tweaked precision. The offset bass takes a backseat and allows the mids and highs to shine and reach ear shattering levels. A truly relentless and merciless groove that will keep floors rocking no doubt.

Fugitive rounds up this fantastic package and keeps the Techno vibe alive. Superb bass rich kicks provide the intro as big crashes lead into a very cool shuffling hat sequence. A chilling, scratching type sound dominates alongside subtle synths that sit in the background which gives this track a sinister vibe. Warm basses give great depth to the sound making this a hell of a ride that should be a tool in any set.

LUCIO GRANDI – 2BASICS EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

A welcome return to Basiks for Lucio with this two tracker 2Basics EP. Lucio’s last outing, Let’s Go, back in the summer was well received and we are sure this newest cut will follow suit.

First up is Basic A which takes us into the proverbial rabbit hole of deep techno as a myriad of sounds converge onto our senses with merciless gusto. Solid, well constructed beats sit over a superb pulsating bass that seems to go on forever and ever. The break is where the track takes a surreal turn, cascading sounds and FX are met with fading arps which give off a space vibe. You find yourself totally hooked in here as these intricate patterns play havoc with your imagination. A definite must have track which will not disappoint.

Basic B goes deeper with a harsh, raw groove that etches itself into your brain. Big chunky kicks are joined by crispy percussions that keep time in a solid rhythmic vibe. A fantastic deep throbbing bass comes through and leads us to the break where a cacophony of spaced out sounds multiply as the layers build. Wonderfully crafted FX and synth patterns are brought together in a mind blowing sequence that locks you in for the duration. Superb, sublime and simply stunning stuff you will not want to miss.

DIEGO HERRERA – SLOW BURN (BONZAI BASIKS)

Diego Herrera returns to Basiks with the double-a side Slow Burn. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Diego, his debut came in September 2013 with Afterhour EP with a great reception, after that he gave us the fantastic Middle Earth EP and then a remix on Christian Bonori & Paul S-Tone’s Chemtrails back in March 2014. Great to see him back with another track we are sure will not disappoint.

First up is the Original Mix of Slow Burn with its smooth deep tech house grooves. The intro boasts cool breaks that build up with percussive elements filtering through to get the rhythm flowing. The track instantly transforms with a four four beat and superb offset bass that seems fathomless as it pulsates through the sound. Bright percussion hits stand out beautifully and become the mainstay of the track keeping that tech flavour going. Subtle chords leak into the sound after the break rounding up this fantastic rhythm fuelled slice of tech.

Slow Burn gets a makeover from Christian Venegas with his Christian Venegas Is Burning In Hell Remix. Chilean DJ and producer Christian is a popular figure in the underground scene. He got into DJing professionally in 2006 after he started to buy records and has since performed at top venues all over the country. His weekly radio show Microtechnia airs on SonidoLikido and he currently produces for a vast array of top labels. Here he toughens up the sound with big punchy kicks and some superb in your face percussions that are a big feature in the sound. Staying true to the original he utilises the deep bass beautifully and carries over the main percussion hook to great effect. A driving and ballsy cut that will be a feature in many sets for sure.

The Vibe intros with a nice chunky kick and clangy synth shots that get the track moving with style. A wonderfully deep sub bass dominates the sound as subtle percussions build around the track. After a short break the groove settles into its tech flavoured vibe as that bass pounds the bassbins. Bright crispy hats stand out and leads us to the break where a surreal sequence filled with metallic sounds and frenzied FX takes over. Before long we get thrust back into the main track for the duration of this epic encounter with full on tech house.

Da One sets off with a monster kick that pounds a throbbing jab right in your face alongside a continuous rimshot and sharp snappy hats. A deep resonating bass rises up in the background and gets you hooked right into its groove. Detuned hits litter the sound and add to the almost eerie nature of the track. The break throws up a brilliant display of automation on the percussions that gives the track a lot of character before we get thrown right back into the mix. Top notch techno which is not to be missed.

VAN CZAR FEATURING SUGAR LOVE – LOVE TRIP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Van Czar’s newest cut enlists the sultry vocal talents of Sugar Love on his Love Trip EP which is backed by two fantastic remixes. July this year was his last outing with In Vino which received a lot of support. After a recent trip to ADE where he showcased Bonzai Basik Beats, Van continues to deliver the goods as well as running Bonzai Basik Beats Spain and his new radio show Delotux.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a tough bass sound and an enticing sultry vocal. The track settles into a full on Techno groove with punchy kicks and super crisp hats alongside that gritty edged bass. The vocals continue to lull you into their lustful grasp and adds a real dynamic contrast to the sound. As the track progresses the groove becomes tougher and the vocals become more sinister in nature as they are pitched down lower and lower. A real powerful Techno slice yet again from Van and no doubt this one will see a lot of playtime.

DJ and producer Josh Love debuts with Bonzai on remix duty. Josh has been around the scene for a long time now and has worked with some of the best in the industry. Here he turns up the heat and dishes out a top notch slice of pure driving Techno goodness. The intro sets off with some very cool punchy kicks as subtle percussions sit back. A simple yet effective note appears and paves the way for some raunchy vocal samples. The track begins to transform as the notes squelch and vocals become more prominent. The break lets loose with a full on erotic scene as the bass notes rise and burst back into full on Techno mode. A monster tune that will be a main feature among many for sure.

Fran Naveaz steps up for his remix and delivers another of his top quality cuts. His last outing was back in the summer with Feeling which saw great support. Here he takes the original by the horns with a classic punchy kick and accompanying percussions. The groove builds beautifully with the introduction of a tight drum arrangement and those fantastic vocal shots. A deep and throbbing bass shores up the rear and beefs up those kicks brilliantly. Various FX litter the groove as the vocals become much more prominent. The track takes a much tougher stance with the sounds and on the break that big stab really takes control. A full on driving Techno groove that will appeal to many.

JONATHAN CALVO – TRAUMATIZER (BONZAI BASIKS)

Spanish DJ and producer Jonathan Calvo makes a welcome return to Basiks with his brilliant two tracker Traumatizer. It’s been just over a year since we last saw Jonathan with his summer 2013 release The Instructor which performed well.

Traumatizer intros with a big chunky low end kick and crispy sharp hats that get the rhythms flowing nicely. Cool FX go off in the background and give an almost industrial feel to the sound as the layers build with various percussions. The bass sits off the main groove beautifully and provides a solid platform for this techno monster to shine. Darkly sinister whispered vocals toughen up the groove brilliantly as the track goes deeper into the realms of edgy techno. Superb stuff that will be a top pick for those deep dark sets.

Timing fades in with a smooth filtered bass and is soon joined by a punchy kick and shuffling percussion section. The bassline dominates as it locks you into the groove beautifully while various FX keep the techno vibe flowing. The break offers a subtle high pitched string with tribal chants also coming through before slamming right back into the main track. A brilliant tribal techno workout that is sure to be on many playlists.

Elek-Fun delivers his newest slice entitled Great Minds Think Alike on Basiks. Back in July this year we saw his debut with the powerful Lovely Mother Fucker EP which charted well and appeared in many sets. This time around you can expect another feisty run out in a deep tech style.

First up we have the title track Great Minds Think Alike which intros with a monster kick that punches mercilessly right in the chest and is accompanied by a deep throbbing bass from the off. Cool vocal samples add contrasting textures as harsh hats are joined by subtle percussions and FX to etch out a rhythmic groove. Very powerful stuff that will be a welcome addition in those dark late night parties.

Stand & Fight sets off with a huge kick that punches right through your body, this is offset by a sharp crispy hat and builds up a solid rhythm. At the backend of those kicks and just at the offset beat is a pulsating bass that just sits waiting to pounce as the groove intensifies with various layers coming through. A relentless slice of deep techno that will be a top pick in many sets for sure.
