MATAN CASPI – MUDDY DREAMS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='120881751']

 

A regular feature within the Bonzai realm makes a welcome return, Matan Caspi delivers us his latest cut entitled “Muddy Dreams” which comes backed up with two brilliant remixes from two very talented youngsters.

The Original Mix is pure progressive house utopia with a super tight upbeat arrangement, Matan really goes to town with this one, it is a real treat to listen to as the drums weave out a flowing rhythm against some superb synth work and groovy basses. The big feature on the track are the outstanding vocal samples which really tie the whole thing up beautifully. A must for any house jock!

The awesome talent of Anthony Yarranton is shown once again with his remix. Aside from his own “Cotton Candy EP” back in June this year, he had also featured as a remixer on Quadran’s “Rumour” which has seen fantastic reviews from all quarters. In this remix the groove is smooth as the track builds nicely with cool kicks, soft hats and a subtle pad. The break delivers some well crafted synths before a vocal sample takes us back into the main track, great stuff.

Fresh off the back of his “Miracle EP”, Jakhira is back with more stunning prog vibes. A rhythmic intro full of many percussive elements get us moving with a well toned kick following suit. Cool, funky riffs fill the sound as the groovy bass eases through. Great use of vocals here as the track gets into full on club mode making this one to watch on the floors. The break boasts a wonderful array of lush pads before heading straight back into the main track, excellent stuff.

THORIN – END GAME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='119592553']

 

Based in Almelo, Netherlands, DJ and producer Thorin (Van Gelden) takes progressive house by the horns and churns out a superb cut entitled “End Game”. The track also comes with two top class remixes as well as the very impressive Original. Currently Thorin has been dabbling with new ideas in the studio and hopefully we will see the results of this soon. Aside from that he is ramping up his DJing with a trip to Belgium for the DJunkee hosted party, Insane in November.

The intro on the Original Mix takes no prisoners as retro inspired synths do their work. Big chunky kicks pack a punch and as the layers build a solid rhythm has taken hold. Lots going on within the sound and you will find yourself locked in and finding new paths with every listen. Sweet melodic plucks are a cool contrast to the robust synths which transform with every phrase. The break shows a myriad of sounds as the track builds back up and crashes straight into this full on prog stomper, superb stuff!

The very popular duo from Tallinn are at it again, Mindgamers aka Zas and Sanze dish out their recipe for fine teched up progressive vibes. The guys provide their usual stunning kicks and drum arrangement which always has huge floor appeal. The baseline has a nice bounce to it and will be sure to get the toes tapping in no time. Accompanying the baseline is a wonderful sub melody that itself has a huge impact. On the break the track is stripped bare to reveal a sweet melodic synth that soon dissipates as the main track kicks back in, great stuff from the guys and a must for any box.

Relaunch aka German based Maik Relaunch is at the mixing desk next with a stunner of a remix. Maik was first a clubber and then became inspired by the legendary Dorian Gray which set him on his DJ journey. Production soon followed and he was quickly affiliated with the likes of John 00 Fleming among others. Releases on Bonzai Progressive, Green Martian, LCD Recordings, Camouflage, JOOF, Borderline Music and Mistique Music over the years have marked Maik as a highly respected artist who is in great demand for remixes. The mix sets off in true progressive style as the baseline becomes the main focus with its rolling effect and sitting well beside a huge kick that will rock any speaker. Synths appear as the layers begin to form up and take us on a frenzied ride into a progressive house fuelled world. A proper prog track with hypnotic qualities and a track that will gain a lot of support, no doubt.

FLEMBAZ – CAFE EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='119592366']

 

Flembaz are Joao Bandarra and Pedro Freitas, the guys teamed up in 2011 in Lisbon, Portugal. They are an eclectic duo who like to play around with different genres ranging from playful beats to deep creative techno and progressive. Here they mark their Bonzai debut with the two tracker “Cafe EP”.

“Cafe” sets off on a sublime journey through progressive sounds with an infusion of tech thrown in. Beautiful chunky kicks set the scene perfectly with a baseline that will have any woofer quaking. A nice round of percussions keep a cool flowing rhythm as warm synth pads fade through on top of a short vocal sample. Techy synths begin to form as the track intensifies carving out a sure fire hit with many DJ’s.

“Quinalle Express” takes a subtle approach to the intro before a huge kick comes slamming through and bringing with a massive sub bass that will reverberate through your body. Expertly crafted percussions knit a steady rhythm and some wonderful flute/pipe type sounds peek through giving a stark contrast. Very cool track indeed and one that will fit many sets.

CHANTOLA – I WANT YOU (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='118808784']

 

Back and refreshed from his last release, the hugely popular “Don’t You Know” (with Junior J), Chantola delivers another fine slice of house driven beats jacked up with a dose of progressive. “I Want You” also comes packed with a very impressive collection of remixes to suit any venue.

The Original Mix constructs a well balanced house groove with its thumpy kicks and crispy percussions giving good rhythm. A very cool bass rips through the track and is further enhanced with some very nifty synth work, the house vibes are ramped up to funky proportions with a great and catchy vocal sample which is coupled with real smooth guitar licks. One hell of a floorfiller on offer and one to watch for sure.

House producer Tero steps up for his first remix on Bonzai with a truly wonderful display of house beats with a sprinkling of deep funk thrown in. Tero has an impressive release count under his belt on labels like Club 86 Recordings and Bullbeat Recordings. From the off the vibe oozes with the pleasures of funky keys which soon build into full on house mode. Perfect drum arrangements give the track a cool bounce, the added vocal samples solidifies the sound while the bass works wonders on the rhythms. Awesome piano work gives this track an all round feel and makes it a must have in any box!

No Chantola release would be complete without the Johny S treatment. This is his sixth remix for Henrik and we can see why he keeps coming back for more. Johny’s own tracks have been on labels like Club 86 Recordings, Bullbeat Recordings and 4 Play Trax to name a few. Here we get into a much more progressive vibe with a super tight arrangement on the drums and percussions. A very cool retro sounding synth does most of the work here as it draws you right into its groove while the deep bass keeps the rhythm flowing. Nice vocal samples come through and on the break the guitar and melodies transform the track before crashing back. Top notch prog house and sure to feature in many sets no doubt.

Another remix debut, this time from Finnish DJ and producer Jesse Suosalmi aka FunkyDee. Jesse too has seen releases on Club 86 and Bullbeat. If you’re after a big floor tune then you’ve come to the right place. The smooth grooves of the original have been taken and ramped up into a party pumping house masterpiece. The funk has certainly been injected here and for those of us who like our music with an oldskool flair then be prepared for a trip that will have you throwing your hands in the air. Absolutely stunning remix and a cert to be featured many times on playlists all over!!

AUDIO NOIR – FLOORLICKER (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='117753242']

 

Fresh off the back of his “Revelations” track, Audio Noir serves up another round of progressive goodness with his two tracker entitled “Floorlicker”.

The title track sets us off on a wonderful trip through surreal progressive grooves. The intro creates a vibrant atmosphere as the vocal samples and FX clash alongside a superb thumping kick. Danceable rhythms are built with the aid of a fantastic percussion arrangement and on the break the track transforms into full on progressive meltdown. A chest pounding baseline pulsates through the sound as a cool riff moves alongside. Such a dynamic groove here which will get a lot of attention.

“Fibre Feelings” intros with a myriad of percussion instruments amalgamating to form a diverse rhythm. The beat gets rocking with the kicks coming through accompanied by a monstrous baseline and well crafted FX. The track intensifies and a huge wall of sound erupts, raiding the senses with a very complex groove, top stuff.
