MANU RIGA – THE FALLEN EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Manu Riga returns with another of his superb solo efforts, this time around he focuses in on some stunning deep and grooving progressive vibes with The Fallen EP. Manu continues to serve Bonzai well with his unique brand of prog, he always delivers on the quality front which is a testament to his character and his abilities as a talented artist and musician. It is these qualities and a passion for music that drive this guy on and it’s also what steers other, like minded producers in his direction. Over the last few years a raft of collaborations have come out of Manu’s studio. The most recent being an excellent partnership with Alex Vidal and their When Worlds Collide release. Guest DJ mixes remain a constant also, Ethnoscience and Escape on radio stations such as Progressive Beats and Pure.FM are fast becoming a common feature and have been gaining lots of support from all over. Still much, much more to come from this outstandingly talented artist, so stay tuned for more.

The title track, The Fallen – which draws inspiration from the heroes who fought against the Ottoman Empire, embodies an Eastern flavour throughout that will send shivers down your spine. The track intros with a punchy kick and an atmospheric background filled with sweeping sounds and cool FX that etch out a surreal Persian theme. The bassline rolls in early on and settles us into a solid workout that relentlessly powers on. Rich vocals spread across the sound throughout as Manu delivers one of his trademarks alongside a tight drum arrangement. A wonderfully sharp Turkish Saz comes into play on the lead and transforms the groove brilliantly as a subtle acid line weaves its way into the track. The break focuses in on soft melodies that dance along on a smooth arp alongside that stunning voice before we get thrust back into the main groove. The track drives on in a deep progressive groove that captivates with a seemingly Twin Peaks-esque vibe making this a definite must have track.

Anywhere But Home takes us deep into the bowels of progressive with a solid workout that will leave you wanting more. Phat kicks and tight percussion arrangements lock the rhythm in place with a little help from a lush bass that sits perfectly under the main sound. Cool strings and pads sweep across the sound as the layers build and the intensity rises. On the break beautiful melancholic vocals melt into the sound and lead the way on a climactic build up that takes us back into this full on groove. A stunning effort which sees a new side to Manu Riga creep through, top notch.

DENNIS FRANCHI & HOUSE LOVIN CRIMINALS – BASETIMES EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dennis returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Basetimes EP and HE brings along the House Lovin Criminals for their debut appearance with the equally fantastic, feet stomping On The Road Again. We last saw Dennis around April 2015 with his brilliant four tracker entitled, Takin Care Of My Shit, which gained a lot of support on the circuit. Dennis and studio partner C-Les make up the House Lovin Criminals and their mission is to take various house music fusions and bring them to new heights while retaining a classic vibe. The guys have known each other for a number of years and regularly DJed together at various parties. They went their different ways for a time before somehow getting back together and ultimately getting into the studio. A truly fresh approach from this dynamic duo and we have no doubt they will make their mark on the scene in a big way.

House Lovin Criminals’ – On The Road Again intros with a superb syncopated rhythm as chunky kicks and stabbing chords deliver the infectious groove. A cool meandering bassline comes through and sets the track firmly into its solid groove. On the break we get strange sweeping sounds that ebb and flow throughout the rest of the track. A hugely popular classic vocal shows up which adds to the retro themes running through and works so well with the sound. An absolute monster of a track that will definitely set floors alight, one to watch.

Basetimes intros with a classic styled punchy kick with a cool low end after taste and crispy hat combi. A solid FM bassline takes over and we get locked into the powerful grooves of the track. Tight drums form up creating a dancey vibe that forces you to shake that booty. Cool sweeping FX glide across the sound alongside a simple one shot vocal. Top notch stuff from Dennis that will surely get the floors moving.

Never Know takes a tough stance right from the off and powerful kicks are joined by harsh, super crisp hats and cymbals. A distant sounding vocal fades through and keeps the track locked into the deeper grooves that come pouring out. The track breaks to reveal a fantastic walking bassline that plucks its way through delivering an energetic vibe and creating a solid low end for the sound. Brilliant effort that will feature in many sets no doubt.

Trouble intros with a muted kick that leans towards the clipped higher frequency and is soon paired with snappy claps and prominent brushed snares that create its own rhythmic groove. A deep resonating bass drives the track on and leaves a wonderfully deep trail in its wake. Echoed vocals fade in and are joined by a gritty, harsh sounding synth lead that takes over the sound while the bass holds everything together beautifully. A tough edged, deep slice of house music that will definitely appeal to many.

Dofamine heads up our next Bonzai Progressive release with the superb artist album, Introvert.

Introvert takes us on a fantastic journey deep into the realms of house, from progressive to deep, filled with melodic flavours and harsh tones. A truly wonderful ride that will bring emotion and inspiration which you will embed deep into your soul.

Dofamine’s Introvert is a superb collection of tracks that will give its listener a wonderful insight into the inner workings of progressive grooves sprinkled with infectious musical sequences. From the deep progressive house grooves of Hydra and Traveller, to the more subdued, smooth vibes on Wind, Mirror, Moon and March 29 there is something for everyone. Monotone takes on a more Techno persona with its harsh bass and tribal fuelled drums while we get a respite from the madness with tracks like Sun, Native and No Way Out as they takes us high into the sky with their blissful ways leaving a sense of fulfilment in their wake.

Rounding off the album we get a glimpse at the title track, Introvert which intros with a crisp hat and distant drums before a nice punchy kick takes over. The bass powers into the sound and delivers an instant injection of smooth progressive vibes. The bass transforms into a gritty throbbing monster and sits perfectly below the maelstrom of sounds above. Bright sweeping, melodic pads fill out the groove beautifully and give off an almost euphoric feeling that captivates the mind, body and soul. A wonderful display that will definitely find its way into many sets this Summer.

The track goes deeper with the bassline providing the deep groove alongside those stunning vocals and a super tight drum arrangement. Another wonderfully deep progressive cut from Steve that will definitely grab a lot of attention.

Bonzai Progressive debut remixer Acud drops a super smooth prog house stomper complete with solid grooves and sophisticated vocals that blend perfectly with punchy kicks and crispy hats. The bassline probes right through the sound as wispy strings fade in and out alongside a cool, subtle synth arp. Rich pads light up the track and bring in a spacious atmospheric vibe that adds an intense flavour to the sound. Wonderfully crafted stuff that is a must have track in your collection.

The ever present Audio Noir is back on remix duty and delivers another top notch job as usual. His last outing was on remix duty for Matt Holliday’s Memories Of Yesterday as well as his artist album Now & Zen and yet again he provides the goods in style. The Audio Noir Rekonstruction intros with a deliciously cool pad sequence that ebbs and flows to the backdrop of a solid kick and a powerful bassline. Beautiful, bright arps sweep across the sound as subtle yet very effective vocal shots pop up. We settle in for a truly epic ride as this relentless groove just keeps on giving. The break takes us deeper as those pads and arps lull us deep into the groove before that lush kick and strong bass takes us back into full on mode. From here we get locked into a solid workout complete with a full on electric rock guitar that gives off a progressive rock Pink Floyd vibe as it marries up with that superb driving bass. Sublime.
