THORIN – SECRETS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Thorin is back with his follow up to Hallucinogen back at the end of 2013 with Secrets which comes packed with three superb remixes. Over the last several months Thorin has been a busy guy with a string of remixes for the likes of Nico Parisi, Gai Barone and Audio Noir as well DJ slots on Bonzai Basik Beats and his own monthly podcast. Today Thorin keeps the progressive vibe alive with this fresh new cut.

First up we have the Original Mix that sets off with thumping kick and a wonderfully rich bass that hooks you right into its groove. Subtle percussions bring a smooth rhythmic flow to the sound as lush pads sit in the wings alongside cool arps. The first break throws up a brilliant spoken word sample that gives the track character as well as a narrative that will invoke deep thinking. A proper driving infectious groove ensues and takes us to the main break where the arps take over before we get thrust right back into full swing. Top notch yet again from Thorin and a definite must in any DJ’s box.

Manu Riga is first up to remix duty with another of his sublime progressive journeys. Manu is fresh from his fantastic Shadow of Life which saw massive support across many top portals as well as a firm favourite on the floors. Here he sets us up for one of his inspiring rides through deep prog vibes. The intro boasts a nice punchy kick and wistful FX that ebb and flow throughout bringing a mesmerizing effect to the sound. A beautifully warm bass grabs a hold of your senses and locks you in while subtle gated synths begin to form up. The break brings those wistful pads to the fore as a spoken vocal sample comes through and then it’s back to the main groove for this relentless journey which is most definitely not to be missed.

Next up we have a remix from Mark Found who has already made a big impact with his recent mix on Manu Riga’s Shadow Of Life as well as his own productions Sagittarius and Tribute which he produced under the guise Duluth. Here Mark takes a deeper approach to the sound as he introduces superb dark elements into the grooves. Chunky kicks and expertly crafted percussion arrangements keep the rhythm flowing as sinister sounding pads creep through alongside a hypnotic bassline that dominates with its pulsating rhythm. The break brings up those pads with a spoken vocal off in the distance keeping the deep vibe flowing. Superb offering here that will no doubt keep the darker floors active with its infectious grooves.

Lastly we have Deuzler with his remix, he is fresh off the back of his last remix on Audio Noir’s Brooklyn Xpress which came shortly after his debut Go Toward the Light. On the remix he takes the track firmly down the progressive house route with wonderful pounding kicks and a subtle percussion arrangement that keeps the rhythm steady and solid. Beautifully warm and lush deep basses inject the groove with a hypnotic vibe that keeps you locked in. Such a top notch cut that will be a hit among many for sure.

RELAUNCH – SLEEPWALKING EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Relaunch is back with his long awaited follow up to his Camis Minor EP with the superb Sleepwalking EP. Since then Maik has been very busy with remixes for the likes of Matan Caspi, Airwave & DJ Fire, Philthy Chit and Gai Barone as well as other projects. We are always excited when he delivers his cuts and this one will blow your mind.

First up we have Sleepwalking which takes us on a journey through the deep side of progressive. The intro boasts a beautiful display of deep sounds with throbbing basses and wonderful bright pads with a single kick that teases before pumping out a chunky 4×4 groove. Those arps and pads contrast brilliantly with a deep pulsating bassline that drives the track forward relentlessly. We can hear influences of Psy in there as the bassline produces acidic flavours that add so much texture to the sound. A merciless trek through the darker progressive sphere that will appeal to many for sure.

A State Of Full Consciousness intros with a massive punchy kick and sharp crispy percussions. The bassline gets going early on and brings a tough edge to the sound as it rolls through. An infectious groove ensues and as the layers build we are treated to some outstanding synths that propel the track to new heights. The break lets loose with the synths bringing melodies alongside a droning bass before we are thrust right back into the main groove. A huge pumping track that will light many floors.

The Original Mix of Night Train is up next and the intro takes no prisoners as it unleashes a myriad of pads and FX creating a brilliant soundscape. A plucky arp delivers a sweet melody before the track hits you right in the face with powerful kick and roaring bass combi. Wonderfully layered sounds and FX take the track forward with the bass as the main driving force. We get another taste of melodies on the break which are in stark contrast to the dark nature of the groove and then it’s back to full on mode in this fantastic dark progressive slice.

Lastly on this superb EP we have the Techno Edit of Night Train. We get the driving force from the original as those basses dominate the sound with the emphasis on the darker elements. Nice chunky kicks and a rhythmic percussions keep the groove moving as sweeping pads draw you in. A much more hypnotic affair and one that will gain a lot of attention for sure.

AIRWAVE – CARRE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Airwave continues his reign as progressive master to deliver another absolute stomper entitled Carre. His last outing with DJ Fire, Without Roots, is still enjoying high positions on various charts and playlists. DJing is still a big focus for Airwave and he is enjoying gigs and some very cool and exotic places so be sure to catch a glimpse if he comes your way. Backed up with two stunning remixes we are sure there is something for everyone here.

The Original Mix gives off a real deep progressive vibe which is evident right from the off as pounding kicks are joined by distant percussions and a deep droning bass sound. Various layers start to build and bring a steady flowing rhythm within a super tight arrangement. In perfect Airwave style you start to feel the intensity as pads begin to rise. Bright melodic flavours offer stark contrasts that work so well with darker elements. We end up locked in a beautifully constructed progressive groove and can only be described a simply sublime, top notch yet again and a definite must have.

Hailing out of Poland we have Monojoke up first on remix duty. This guy is a very much in demand artist due to his diverse range of skills which he utilises to deliver top quality every time he touches his own productions or remixes. He has seen a couple of remixes appear on our compilations in the past and we are delighted to see him grace these shores once more. The remix intros with a very cool display of percussive patterns as well as an ebbing and flowing synth. A large bass pluck is backed with a very cool rising arp that leads us up to the main track where a smooth punchy kick drives the groove. The main bass takes the track up a gear as it relentlessly delivers its powerful progressive force. On the break the synths take over delivering cool melodic phrases that match perfectly with that deep sub bass effect. A fantastic journey that you will not want to miss.

Rise and Fall delivers another top notch remix which we have come to expect given his recent efforts. A firm favourite among many we last saw him with his wonderful Seize The Day back in early summer this year. Here the remix intros with a nice punchy kick with subtle percussions littering the background alongside a sweeping pad. A warm bass pluck sets the tone and is soon joined by a much deeper bass which provides a solid platform. Short synth riffs are accompanied by cool FX as a hypnotic arp begins to rise. The break reveals a very cool display of pads that lead us back into the main groove for the remainder of this epic slice of prog, superb stuff.
