MATAN CASPI – LUXURIZED (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matan Caspi returns with Luxurised which comes backed up with two tasty remixes that are sure to set the progressive world alight. Matan’s last outing here – Distant Muse – proved popular as did his remix for Iga Deep’s Indigo. We’re always blown away by this guys sound and you can put this one up there with some of his best work. Much more to come from Matan so stay tuned.

Right from the off on the Original Mix we’re faced with a solid progger thanks to chunky kick drums and a round of bright crispy hi hats and tight percussions. A deep rumbling bass casts a deep shadow over the sound, creating a vortex of subsonic grooves. Expertly crafted FX and perfectly placed synths add strength to the groove as gritty pads fade in. Put of the bass soaked sound comes some fantastic vocals that add character to the track making this a definite must have for any progressive set.

Electronic music icon Rolf Elmer aka Jam El Mar is back at Bonzai Progressive and is up first on remix duties. Unless you’ve been locked away for over 25 years, you’ll know this guy’s history and how he was responsible for a plethora of classic material, but these days he is still hard at work looking for his next groove and forming it into an energetically charged track. Recently he showcased his talents on a special remix celebrating Bonzai’s 25 years as a record label, his take on Cherry Moon Trax – The House Of House became an instant hit among many and verified his legendary status. Here Rolf takes us deep into his world where we find big punchy kick drums and a reverberating bass alongside superbly tweaked vocals. We are treated to flashes of instruments in many forms that build up cool textured layers while the main focus of the track goes to the hypnotic stabbing synth that rises up on the break and for the duration. Top notch stuff once again from this guy, not to be missed.

Gabriel West & Ricardo Piedra return to Bonzai Progressive on the remix after their debut album – Mission – back in late Summer 2016 grabbed a lot of attention. Gabriel and Ricardo are definitely a perfectly matched studio partnership, they’ve been cutting tracks together for a couple of years and they always deliver the goods. They’ve developed a unique sound that mesmerizes and draws the crowd into their groove, proving just how in sync they are. This is manifested more so when they are DJing as a duo, bringing their brand to the floors and ensuring good times for all. Great to see them back once again and hopefully we’ll see more in the future. The guys deliver a real solid slice of deep progressive grooves with their remix. Right from the off we’re locked in as chunky kicks lead the way alongside shuffling hi hats and tight percussions. Surreal sounds evolve within the track creating a multi layered groove that is focused on the deep subby basses. Softly sung vocals appear adding some very cool contrasts while a myriad of FX and synths build up. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.

My Inner offers up a seriously stunning slice of progressive house with its alluring draw that pulls you in thanks to expertly crafted arrangements and mesmeric sounds.

Swirling pads and subtle melodic arps greet us on the break before we head back into the main track for the duration. A top notch cut that will definitely be a welcome addition in any late night set.

Tiahuanaco Returns is a steady, fine flowing progger that will be welcomed on the floors no doubt. A subtle, laidback intro precedes an ever growing groove that delivers a superb progressive experience. Pumping kick drums are joined by bright and crispy shuffling hats while a deep and moody bassline rattles the lower frequencies.

YVES DERUYTER – CALLING EARTH – HAN HAAK REMIX (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

As our 25th year celebrations gather momentum we pick up the pace with a reimagining of another absolute banging track from back in the day. One of our most prolific and successful artists Yves Deruyter gave us Calling Earth back in 1994 which was the A-side to IV – BR 94061 – and backed with Rave City (Cherry Mix). The original was the epitome of the sound of the time and quickly rose to mega status among throngs of ravers and DJ’s. A string of remixes followed as well as multiple releases over the years. The man himself relentlessly churned out hit after hit putting him at the top of his game and, to this day he is still very much revered by his peers. This special 25 years remix is delivered by London based DJ and producer Han Haak and he certainly does the track justice with his slick rendition. In 2012 Han decided to brings his brand of twisted sounds to the masses and his tracks where very quickly championed by a slew of top DJ’s. He is described as being amongst a new wave of rising talent that will make the underground scene much stronger. His passion and drive will most definitely give him the opportunity to make this happen. We’re delighted to have him on board for this one and we hope to see more from him in the future.

On the remix we’re greeted with that too familiar Yves Deruyter signature synth that sits behind a punchy kick drum waiting to be unleashed. The track then takes on its contemporary role as striking synth hits fall into the offbeat accompanied by spiralling basses and a solid, tight drum section. The off-melody riff from the original adds the finishing touch to this stomping cut that will most definitely tear up the modern dancefloor.

In 2001 he got hooked on DJing and this solidified his passion for electronic music. A fine partnership doing their homeland proud and who certainly knows how to get the grooves flowing.

Farewell Inti sets out with a nice punchy kick drum alongside crispy hi hats, sharp claps and an array of shuffling percussions. We’re teased with subtle references to the bass before mercy is shown and the bassline comes through in all its lush glory. Swirling pads create eerie melodies as that bassline probes its way into your soul. The break dishes out more of the subtle melodies creating a wonderful atmosphere before the chunky basses and rhythmic drums come back for the duration. A top notch slice no doubt.

The Flow Of Let Go boasts a fantastic arrangement made up of intricate drums and some very cool FX and basses. An intensity creeps into the track as the layers build with anticipation taking over as we wait for the bass to burst free. Subtle arpeggio’s rise and fall alongside cool synths while the bass meanders through the sound beautifully. The break dishes out some brilliant synths that are tweaked to perfection resulting in a wall of sound that crashes back into the main groove for the duration. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.

AudioStorm returns in 2017 with this superb effort entitled Lethal Engine which boasts two originals and two exceptional remixes from Rise and Fall and Robert R. Hardy. As ever we’re treated to nothing but the best of quality from this guy, just like his last outing for BP – Underground Culture as well as several other remixes.

Before we get to the remixes we have two superb originals – Lethal Engine and Suspense. Both tracks offer up sublime progressive grooves and will certainly turn a few heads. Lethal Engine hits us with a dark and moody prog vibe filled with tight drums and hypnotic arps. The break is a sublime sequence and when that vocal comes through the track blows up, a definite dancefloor destroyer. Suspense also delivers the goods on the progressive front with a solid workout that drives with an intense vibe. Well crafted drum patterns lead the way as a meandering bassline casually works its way through the sound. Contrasting high frequencies work perfectly with the sub sounds here making this one a definite must have.

Rise and Fall is back on remix duties and here he takes Lethal Engine to a whole new dimension with his unique brand of prog. Right from the off you are drawn to the groove with its almost downtempo vibe, but as the track evolves we are taken deeper, much deeper. This one is a solid builder with layer upon layer revealing subtle changes that have a huge impact. The big hitter here though is the acid sequence that seems to go on forever. Enough said, do not miss this one you will not be disappointed.

Reis Robert aka Robert R. Hardy returns to Bonzai Progressive on the remix and here he gets to grips with Suspense and delivers a superb slice for our listening pleasure. The track intros with muted kicks against subtle percussions before the kicks get their thump and the percussion section starts to shuffle creating a steady rhythmic groove. Soft melodic arps linger as a warm bassline rises up enveloping the sound beautifully. A pure hypnotic groove that will draw a lot of attention no doubt.

The Original Mix intros with a nice pounding kick drum along with cool shuffling hi hats and various percussions. A distant melodic arp begins to rise and is soon joined by a warm, probing bassline.

Bob The Groove returns to Bonzai Progressive on the remix and once again he shows us his superb talents in the studio. The intro boasts a deep droning bass that takes hold, drawing you in alongside nice chunky kicks and crispy hi hats. Mesmeric pads fill the background and continue for the duration becoming prominent on the break as they blend effortlessly with hypnotic vocals. The result is cosmic bliss that will definitely be a welcome addition in any late night set.

Scottish DJ and producer Mendexx delivers a superb deep progressive remix that will not disappoint. Mendexx returns to Bonzai Progressive after his last outing Mutate performed very well indeed. Here he takes us on a sublime prog journey that sets out with superb punchy kick drums and crispy hi hats. A stabbing, probing bassline soon comes through and we’re hooked. The bassline is joined by cool synth stabs and subtle vocals that add an air of mystery to the track.

Exotic progressive house is one way to describe Paul Angelo & Don Argento’s latest creation, Ipanema. The track just oozes pure progressive vibes and draws its warmth from the famous beach area. Well rounded punchy kick drums lead the way with bright crispy hi hats on the offset generating a solid rhythm alongside subtle percussions. A hypnotic arp cascades the track and blends effortlessly with swirling pads, soft pan pipes and a superb plucky bass. The break is a wonderfully blissful sequence, a mini track in the middles of the progressiveness if you will. Dominating the break is a fantastic guitar that enables the mind to drift away before we’re drawn back into full on mode for the duration. A must have no doubt.

Punaluu delivers a superbly warm bass laden slice of progressive that makes us dream of the Summer months. A nice and tight drum arrangement takes us on our way and generates a solid rhythmic flow while the bassline adds an extra spicy groove. On the musical front we’re treated to wonderfully crafted arpeggios and a bright, rich piano that stands out beautifully. The break throws up a serene image of beach life on Hawaii’s third island before the party gets back into full swing with the return of the main track. Top notch stuff indeed that is not to be missed.
