STEVE SAI – WHITE FLUFFY CLOUDS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Greek born DJ and producer Steve Sai returns to the Bonzai Progressive stable with this stunning two tracker entitled ‘White Fluffy Clouds’. Steve’s last track ‘The Cube EP’ got the attention from many corners, and no doubt this release will be up there with its predecessor.

The title track, ‘White Fluffy Clouds’ gets us on the go with a smooth deep progressive house workout. Nice and steady rhythms built up on the intro with a cool hat, clap combo alongside sweetly melodic synth shots. The bass and kicks join the party and set the track on its proper journey through prog with a hypnotic undertone that really captivates your mind. The break goes to a deep place enhancing the experience throughout this superb track, great stuff.

‘Across The Sky’ intros with a distant kick that sits below a dark synth sound. The kicks soon beef up and a solid progressive groove is born as a wonderful bassline eases into the sound. Flowing, soothing rhythms emanate from the tight arrangements as the layers are expertly crafted. At the break things simmer down to a blissful state before you are ejected right back into the groove, top notch stuff!

NEPTUN 505 – ZULU EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Polish producer Marcin Stepien aka Neptun 505 makes his debut on Bonzai Progressive with a two track progressive monster entitled ‘Zulu EP’. Marcin started to make own music in 1999, but 2008 was a real breakthrough year for him with original and remix releases on labels like Magnetide Records, UDTK Records, and then later on Dirty Stuff Records, Electronic Tree, Mistique Music, Smart Phenomena Records and Passion Fruit Recordings. Today he is working on solo stuff and sometimes he collaborates with E.F.G.

First up is ‘Zulu’ which intros with superb tribalistic patterns via some smooth membranophone action and a nice chunky house kick with a side of cool hats and other percussions. A deep resonating bass makes a stealthy entrance to the sound with nifty work on the frequency filter. Wonderful cascading synths weave out a cool vibe and the track soon takes on a full progressive persona. Brilliant stuff and a definite must for any prog set!

‘Orion’ gets down to tribal business from the off as a round of quality percussions carve out neat rhythmic patterns. A rising synth pad also brings the bassline along for the ride as the track builds the layers beautifully. Very cool chord changes on the synths keep the ear trained and on the break subtle melodies get the focus before coming right back into prog mode for the duration, top stuff.

THORIN – HALLUCINOGEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bonzai regular Thorin returns after the very well received ‘End Game’ which saw massive support from all over and features on top download portals. Here we see his newest works in the shape of ‘Hallucinogen’ which delves into the deeper side of the progressive spectrum. The track also comes backed up with four top notch remixes from top remix artists.

The Original Mix sets off with a steady groove as the kicks and subtle percussions form a flowing rhythm. The bassline sits well with the sound while in the background smooth sweeping pads provide a solid backbone. The sounds are expertly crafted and fit beautifully within the grooves creating a trippy and hypnotic ride making this a must have for those progressive jocks.

Kevin Vega is back to remix duty with a wonderful display of progressive sounds that bind together so well. The intro has a nice chunky kick that packs a punch, this is coupled with a superb bassline that comes from the depths. Subtle percussions are perfect here as the main focus lies with the hypnotically driven nature of the track, superb stuff.

Beat Maniacs aka Petar Bogojevic and Nikola Radivojevic are next up on the remix and the guys are fresh off the back of their Bonzai debut with ‘Messine’. Here the guys veer towards a more house orientated vibe while retaining a progressive nature. Cool synth pads work well throughout while a simple melody plays amongst the grooves, great stuff.

Audio Noir delivers the first of two remixes with this one being a solid slice of prog on his Rekonstruction Mix. This guy knows how to work a remix and here he sets the bar high with a strong and steady rhythmic intro. Chunky kicks and crispy hats keep the flow and some outstanding synth work adds that progressive element we love. Sweeping pads ebb and flow before an amazing bassline takes total control of the sound. A definite one to watch here!

Audio Noir lowers the tempo with a nod to his Rekonstruction Mix for his Afterhours Mix. Another fine slice of prog on offer for the late late night parties. We are treated to a sophisticated arrangement of warm and lush vibes with a bassline that will keep the toes tapping for the duration. Simply stunning from this guy yet again.

EIGHTY SIX – VITAMINE EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Eighty Six debuts on Bonzai Progressive with a sublime four track EP entitled ‘Vitamine’.

The title track ‘Vitamine’ sets off in true prog style with a strong kick accompanied by a cool synth chord which leads into a short break that reveals a refreshing melodic sequence. The bassline adds a bounce to the sound as it drives through creating a very rhythmic vibe with the help of some tight percussion arrangements. We lead into a stunning break down filled with fantastic melodies before being thrown right back into this fine slice of progressive house, superb stuff that is not to be missed.

‘Palmeraie’ keeps the prog vibes flowing with a nice chunky kick and sharp hi hat combo. A gritty synth fades through transforming into a full on attack with the release knob getting a workout. Building nicely, the bassline solidifies the sound as it takes on many layers before breaking down to a beautiful synth fusion and then slamming straight back into full on prog mode with gusto, great stuff.

‘Connection’ takes the sound a little deeper with a huge thumping kick and darkly synth pads alongside a sinister sounding vocal. This is beautifully contrasted with a cool, plucky synth sequence that blends perfectly with the bassline as it meanders in the background. Cool use of more vocals rounds this track up brilliantly and would be a welcome addition to any set.

Lastly we have ‘Feeling’, super smooth housey intro as groovy keys work their magic alongside a sultry female vocal with percussions building up around the sound. The bassline, that can only be described as outstanding, weaves its way into the sound with a stealthy approach leaving you gaping due to the impact it has on the groove. Very cool synths provide a fantastic melodic sequence which is the perfect accompaniment to that bassline. This track is the complete package and will be a main feature among many music lovers for sure, just amazing!

AUDIO NOIR – NY XPRESS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/128471478″ params=”color=ff0000&auto_play=false&show_artwork=true” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

 

Australian producer Audio Noir has been rather busy on the remix front lately, but he has also been working on his own material. ‘NY Xpress’ is his latest incarnation and comes backed with a slew of top class remixes.

The Original Mix intros with a cool chunky kick and metallic percussion combination which leads the rhythms smoothly. A subtle yet very effective bassline sits back and gels the vibe together beautifully before it explodes into a full on groovy progressive workout. One big feature here is a simple synth riff that dominates throughout with huge impact on the sound. Top stuff yet again from down under!

First up to the remix plate we have Sector 7 aka Mike Dierickx. Mike as usual is very busy indeed with his Club Elite Sessions, remixing, producing and DJing around the world. Here he takes us on a tour of progressive charged tech vibes, the intro leads nicely into a tough edged bass sound that transforms its way through the track creating contrasting textures. Cool synths wait in the wings and on the break they burst forth delivering a stunning tech twist to the track, superb stuff.

Belgian DJ and producer Nico Parisi is our next remix artist. Nico is currently working on new material and is dusting off the retro after his superb set at Bonzai Retro 2013. His latest track ‘Caress’ is very well received and we are sure to see more from this guy soon. His remix sets off on a cool flowing progressive journey right from the get go as a chunky kick sets the scene alongside a droning bass sound. Sweeping FX add textures and percussive elements fade through. On the break the deep resonating bass comes to prominence with a cool vocal sample thrown in. Fantastic darkly vibes which will sit perfectly in many sets.

Fresh off the back of his last release ‘Spirit’, alongside fellow producer Dafar, Jonny Calypso is up next on the remix. Jonny’s mix intros with well rounded chunky kicks with sharp, crisp percussions. A surreal pad lurks in the depths as a wonderful bass begins to rise. The break becomes a respite to the darker sounds with a percussion led groove and strange FX filtering through before slamming back down into dark prog territory, brilliant stuff.

Lloyd Trimmer aka Cordoba delivers his own round of prog beats. UK based Lloyd seen his debut remix on BP on the Mindgamers track ‘The Crown’ which seen top reviews from all quarters. The remix here intros with well crafted percussive instruments alongside cool FX. A truly deep and intense bass grips the sound and dominates the track with gusto. The drum section is well crafted and keeps the rhythms flowing as a hypnotic synth note joins in. Massive bass led track that will feature in many playlists for sure.

MINDGAMERS – THE CROWN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id=’127390988′]

 

Mindgamers are back from their recent stint on Frisky Radio’s world tour when they stopped off in Talinn for the guys to do an exclusive set in which they played this track for the first time. These guys need no introduction really as they are now firmly rooted within the Bonzai sound. Their new track “The Crown” comes backed up with two top notch remixes.

The Original mix gets flowing with a cool percussion led intro that builds the rhythm nicely. A superb deep bassline soon takes over the sound and matches up beautifully with a tight drum arrangement. Vocal snippets give the track a punch while the synths rise up to epic heights. On the break the levels rise yet again with wonderful strings and an awesome female vocal before crashing right back into this solid slice of progressive house, enough to raise the roof at any venue and a must for any set.

Koen Mertens has been very busy of late with a round of brilliant remixes, here he makes no exceptions as he delivers his brand of prog with another great remix. Chunky kicks fade through on the intro as the vocal sits back on top of some tight percussions. The bassline rises up in a stealthy approach and before you know it you are locked into its groove, alongside this a wall of sound is forming with huge synths stacking up on top of each other. The break does a great job maintaining the vibe and the female vocal is the perfect companion. An intense build-up gets us back into full swing, a true prog monster that is not to be missed.

UK based Lloyd Trimmer aka Cordoba is next on the remix. Lloyd has seen releases on House Proud Records and Kushtee Records. As a DJ he has played at prestigious clubs such as London’s Ministry Of Sound, The Egg and Mango, he also co-founded Substance Promotions to progress the sound of House in some of the finest venues in Hampshire and Surrey. The remix takes the prog sound a little deeper with hypnotic rhythms and a wonderful deep bass that transforms as the track drives on. Very cool FX make a big play also and work perfectly with a tight drum and percussion arrangement. Sweeping synths and subtle melodies add texture alongside clever use of the vocal samples, great stuff!
