YURIY FROM RUSSIA – DISTANT LOVE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Yuriy Kolomiytsev aka Yuriy From Russia has been a constant force at Bonzai Progressive for the last number of years. As well as his own material he has contributed a raft of remixes for a plethora of top artists with critical acclaim coming in from all angles. His current discography is extensive and he shows no signs of letting up anytime soon. Here he presents us with his first studio album entitled Distant Love which features 9 top notch progressive cuts that will most definitely grab a lot attention.

The album opens with the title track Distant Love which sets the scene for a wonderful trek deep into the heart of progressive. A well rounded kick drum leads the way alongside sharp hi hats and a superb synth stab. The track breaks to reveal a deep droning bass that resonates right through the sound to become the dominant force. Those chord stabs work wonders here creating a solid groove with its dancey vibe. The break throws up an unexpected melodic sequence that fits the sound beautifully and culminates in a cool tinkling arp and a wonderful guitar lick. An awesome slice of prog not to be missed.

Glass Bells is up next and intros with a swirling pad and cool percussion pattern before a nice and chunky kick drum comes through alongside an equally chunky bassline that hugs the low end perfectly. As the layers build we get locked on the groove and get lost in a series of melodies that hypnotize the mind. Brilliant stuff.

We move on to the progressive breaks of Keep Your Head Down. A wonderfully crafted cut filled with superb breaks and a myriad of patterns that combine perfectly to keep us hooked. The track builds to a wall of sound filled with intricate melodies and a very cool vocal with a deep droning bass shoring up the low end. From here we head in to Oriental Bazar which offers up a deeper progressive groove as lush basses are met with a tight drum arrangement and an array of Eastern flavours that deliver a complex and hypnotic construction. The perfect fodder for those late night sessions.

Reach Out takes us on a fantastic progressive journey that leaves us wanting more and more. A real smooth groove made up of warm pads and sultry piano riffs. The vocals are superb and give the track a lot of character while the bassline works its way into your body forcing you to move to the groove. Next up is She Is My Sun with its big punchy kick drums and powerful offset bassline. Bright crispy hats and shuffling percussions layer up to form a solid rhythmic groove as swirling pads cascade overhead. Wonderfully crafted melodies find their way through the deeper elements and bring in a surreal vibe to the sound that will captivate the mind. Definitely one for the late night fraternity.

Sunrise Theme is a beautiful slice of progressive house that would not be out of place on an Ibizan terrace on a cool Summers evening. A swaying melodic vibe that will warm your heart and bring a sense of euphoria. Tight drums are met with a playful bassline that dances across the sound effortlessly as we are built up to the break. Here the track reveals its true nature and offers up a beautiful display of rich sounds from smooth pads to gritty guitars. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.

Yuriy offers up a 2016 edit of his 2013 track Do You Feel featuring Ange. Back in 2013 the track pulled in a lot of support and this time around will be no different. A meandering bassline that draws you in is met with a tight drum arrangement and the ultimate smooth groove that will grab you and not let go. The sultry vocal from Ange is stunning and takes the track to the next level. A brilliantly rich sound that will definitely appeal to many.

Rounding of this fantastic album we have the super chilled out vibes of The Heart Of Asia. Strikingly rich strings provide the intro as Eastern flavoured melodies come through alongside hair raising voices. A laidback breaks pattern will get the heads nodding but it’s the musical elements here that shine. An expertly crafted slice for those chill moments and the perfect way to end a wonderful journey that this album took us on.

VOLKAN ERMAN & FINDIKE – DEEP CONNECTION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Turkish DJ and producer duo Volkan Erman and Findike aka Emrah Findik debut on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Deep Connection. Volkan is no stranger to BP as he has appeared on the label under his Quantus guise back towards the end of 2015 with Pass Through Time EP and on remix duty for Nico Parisi’s Raklet at the start of 2016. Findike released his first track back in 2014 on By Ground Digital and since then he has racked up quite a few cuts on various labels. Great to see this duo getting together and we hope to see more from them soon.

Deep Connection opens with a cool punchy kick drum and tribal fuelled drum arrangement that delivers a spritely rhythmic groove. Thick probing basses come though and the track settles into a solid progressive workout. Swirling pads float overhead as the bass ramps up the pressure and the intensity rises. The break throws up a sublime melodic sequence that mesmerizes the mind before we get slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff you do not want to miss.

Copper Mind goes right into a full on progressive groove from the off as big chunky kicks dish out a powerful punch alongside shuffling hats and a super cool bass. Over the top we are treated to lots of interesting sounds that blend together beautifully creating a sublime progressive experience. A myriad of melodies interrupt the solid prog groove in short bursts, enough to keep our attention locked on. Top notch grooves for the late night floors here, a must have track no doubt.

Aexfly aka Russian DJ and producer Alex Pronikov debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb two tracker Frozen Heart. Based in Moscow, young producer Aexfly released his first track – Across Universe – on Electronic Tree in September 2015. Focusing in on progressive house and tech house, this guy is fast becoming a much renowned name on the scene. No doubt we will be seeing much more from him in the future.

Frozen Heart gets off to a lively start with spritely percussions forming a solid rhythm as a punchy kick drum leads the way. A cool deep bass tone fades through as the layers continue to build and before you know it we’re locked in to the powerful progressive vibes on offer. The track goes deeper and deeper with a growling bassline opening the doors. A big focus remains on the drum elements but on the break a sinister edge comes through with a superb harsh synth at the forefront. Top notch stuff from Aexfly on his debut, one to watch for sure.

Rising Sun opens with cool and crispy shuffling hats and scattered percussions that form effortlessly into a smooth rhythmic flow. A nice and chunky kick drum makes a showing and we soon find our feet stomping the floor. A cool, meandering bassline lurks on the low end as those tight drums keep the track on point. On the higher end we are led into a wonderfully cosmic sounding vibe as swirling pads and high pitched strings do their thing. On the break a fantastic synth takes over taking the track deeper before those pounding kick drums are let loose once more. An excellent display of deep progressive grooves that will satisfy any late night cravings.

With a distinct New York theme you can rest assured that these will quickly make their way to the top of your playlists.

Space Cab Shuffle opens with a nice punchy kick drum that whets the appetite for a trek into progressive house. Bright and super crispy hats sit alongside the kicks and are soon joined by various other percussions to get the rhythm flowing. A deep and powerful bass comes through and dominates the groove, driving the track deeper into progressive. The break throws up a surreal violin sequence that almost seems out of place yet fits perfectly into the sound. Quirky vocals are spread over the track adding a little spice. An excellent slice of prog not to be missed.

4Ev3r starts off with a classic styled kick drum and sharp closed hat as rich pads swirl overhead. As the percussions build and we get drawn into the sound you get a sense of some kind of futuristic look at how music will sound in 100 years. The rich strings really get under your skin and a rumbling bassline delivers a powerful groove. Gritty vocals and an electrified deep synth give the track an edge that make it stand out and no doubt this one will turn a few heads.

Swingtime Swindler intros with a round of tight percussions that form a solid rhythm and give the track the perfect platform to build on. A nice subtle kick drum leads the way into a world of deep progressive grooves complete with swirling pads and a superb bassline that becomes instantly infectious. Cool vocals grace the track and offer up a slice of freshness amidst the deeper elements. A fantastic trek into progressive house that you will not want to miss.

PAVLIN PETROV – RESISTANCE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Pavlin Petro is back at Bonzai Progressive with the superb Resistance. This one comes after he dished out the goods on remix duty for Crocy’s – Mind, back towards the end of 2015. His BP debut – Feeling Alive certainly turned a few heads and we’ve no doubt that this one will follow suit. Resistance is a dark and dirty progressive groove that grabs a hold of you and won’t let go until you’re suitably infused with its deep and powerful groove. Chunky kicks and hypnotic cymbals provide a steady beat as an evolving bass generates a static energy that roots you to the spot. Gritty tones and lurking sounds fill the space and on the break we are faced with a haunting sequence. After the break a seriously cool vocal comes through adding a wonderful character to the sound. Tough and gnarly for the late night sets, you do not want to miss this one.

Synthetic Desire opens with a cool percussion led arrangement that is soon joined by a nice chunky kick and sharp claps. The drums dish out a solid rhythmic groove that provides the perfect platform for the beautifully lush bassline to latch on to. Fantastic spoken vocals leap out of the track and captivate with their dark tones as subtle synth keys are introduced later on. A powerful slice of progressive here that will be a welcome addition in any set.

Can’t You See sets off with a very nice display of drums and percussions that gets the rhythm moving smoothly into a fantastic deep house groove. Big chunky kick drums, crispy hi hats and intricate percussive elements are to blame for these tight patterns that become highly infectious. The deep house oozes out of the sound with the help of a lush bassline that carries a powerful draw. On the break we are treated to some darker elements as low end pads are joined by twisting synths before we are thrust back into full on mode. An excellent display of smooth deep grooves that will deliver the killer blow to any set.
