DENNIS FRANCHI – TAKING CARE OF MY SHIT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dennis Franchi makes a much anticipated and a most welcome return to Bonzai with the four tracker, Taking Care Of My Shit. Dennis has racked up a raft of top notch releases on the likes of Creaminal Records, Bonzai Basiks, Progrez, Wasabi Recordings, Hi Fi Stories and more since 2009. His last outing on these shores came on remix duty for Fab Code’s Midnight Shuffle which appeared on the epic Bonzai & Friends Underground Progressive compilation. Great to see him back and we hope to see much more in the future.

The title track, Taking Care Of My Shit sets off with a nice progressive vibe as punchy kicks are met with a cool shuffling hat sequence and perfectly balanced bass tones that rise up throughout the sound. This obsessive straight to the floor track will hypnotize as the layers continue to build around a solid bassline and some cool vocal shots that pop up from time to time. An expertly crafted synth arrangement takes a lot of the focus and will definitely keep the ears trained and honed in for the duration. Brilliant stuff from Dennis that will definitely find its way into many crates no doubt.

Nice big punchy kicks and crispy hats provide the intro on Winter Noise alongside a cool pulsing bass and gritty noise effects. Cascading synths flow through the sound as subtle melodies expand within to deliver an almost dream-like, mesmerizing state. Cool stabs bring a true house vibe that melts into the deep rhythms and solid no-nonsense groove. Top notch yet again, a must have track.

Little Mil intros with a punchy Techno fuelled kick that leaves a warm after touch. Classic styled percussion form up with snappy snares and sharp claps and shuffling hats. A super low sub bass throbs into the groove and will definitely give the woofers a run for their money while literally blowing the socks off all who gather. A very cool retro vibe is evident as those fantastic synths rise up and deliver an infectious sequence that will hook you right in. Expertly crafted drum patterns will move the floors with ease as the groove takes hold, superb stuff.

3+1 provides a trek into a tech fuelled progressive charged world filled with tight beats and cool rhythms. A fantastic grooving bassline takes charge and will definitely get the floors on the move as reverbed synths cascade through the sound. On the break those lush synth dominate before giving way to the solid bassline once more, this is one track you need in your box.

AMETRON – EI A EI (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Ametron aka Athens based DJ and producer Tigran Mkrtchian debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime two track Ei A Ei. Tigran played in rock bands in the 90’s as a teenager before moving on to experiment with electronic sounds. In 2005 he was co-founder of the party crew Psyacoustics who organised lots of events and played alongside some of the worlds to psychedelic artists. His musical background has enabled him to continue his journey and produce many different styles. In 2011 he released the compilation, Landing on Neurotrance Records. These days he works as a physiotherapist and spends all his free time experimenting with music with some great results. A highly talented artist no doubt, we’re glad to have him on board.

Ei A Ei intros with a throbbing sub bass that will have the bassbins quaking. A nice thumping kick is introduced and gives the track a real deep and almost psy feel. That bassline levels out into a full on driving monster and carries a lot of psy elements while keeping firmly in the deep, dark progressive sphere. A myriad of sounds converge on the track and create cool layered textures throughout. Articulate short synth stabs litter the groove and lead the way as the track gathers pace on its epic journey. Acid lines, cool vocals, driving rhythms and more, this track has it all and you do not want to miss this one.

Undercover Obsession intros with a strange mixture of blips, detuned notes and a pulsing bass sound. A chunky kick comes through and brings order with its pounding dominance as darkly sinister pads fill out the background. A proper deep low end bass sits perfectly as a much sharper raw bass gets the groove into full flow. The break delves deeper as the sinister element intensifies with some harsh synths and that constant, hypnotizing bass which fades off to leave a subtle melody and gritty sounds in its wake. Definitely a late night thumper here, top notch stuff.

EXTREME TRAX – SOUND AND FUTURE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Extreme Trax is back after a long hiatus with the superb Sound And Future which comes in original and dub flavours as well as a remix from the on form Audio Noir. Extreme Trax is responsible for a multitude of Progressive Trance and Trance hits in the late 90’s and early 00’s on XTC and Bonzai Trance Progressive with tracks such as Don’t Hold Back, Monday’s Blue and Final Fantasy. Now headed up by the legendary Yves Deruyter and given a 2015 makeover we are sure that this will strike chord with old and new fans alike.

First up we have the Original Mix of Sound And Future which gives off a real live sounding particularly through the drums with their session like qualities. The drum arrangement is big feature here and really gets the feet moving with their tight construction and solid rhythm. A raw sounding organic bass chugs through the sound beautifully and dominates for the duration. On top of the bass we have some very cool synth leads that ooze early 90’s flavour and sit so perfectly in the sound alongside sweeping pads and climactic risers. Stunning work from Mr Deruyter that will surely have the discerning clubbers wanting more.

The Dub mix is a stripped version of its big brother, we still get that live feel from the drums and that bass just dominates with its chugging driving force. In fact the bass has an even bigger place on this mix as the synths take a slight step back. But do not despair as those expertly crafted leads are still in effect and still carry their big lead qualities. Look out for the nod to the 80’s in the form of some very cool FX that lay hidden within the sound. Top notch stuff and a must have track for sure.

Audio Noir is up on remix duty with his EuroBeat remix and he really does do the original some justice with a sprinkling of his own trademark sound. Recently Audio Noir has confessed to changing things up a bit in his productions, he started toying with Electro and 80’S sounds and this remix is providing the perfect platform to showcase this slight change in direction. Nice chunky kicks are joined by stuttering crispy hats and snappy snares alongside delayed claps. A beautifully deep piano chord takes us up the I Feel Love styled rolling bassline that just sits perfectly within the 80’s inspired drums and percussions. Sweeping pads and rising FX complete with laser sounds litter the groove as we lose ourselves in this medley of synthtastic sounds. In true Audio Noir style we are treated to a sublime break that unleashes sweet melodic phrases before a sci-fi riser takes us back into the main groove. Superb stuff yet again from this guy you will not want to miss.

HADY TAREK – THE BOAT EFFECT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Hady Tarek is back with his stunning two tracker entitled The Boat Effect. We last saw Hady back in 2014, firstly with his Bonzai debut Night Shift and later on with remixes for Phi Phi & Airwave on Finesse and Crocy feat Croty on Recht. As always he delivered the goods on each occasion and this time around he holds true with a sublime trek into the tech side of progressive.

The Boat Effect intros with a tough punchy kick with sharp distorted hats and claps that lead up to a sub shaking bassline that rolls right through the track and providing the driving force of the sound. The track breaks to reveal a plethora of retro styled synth stabs and chords that give a real edge to the sound bringing it very close to the Techno side. The result is an energetically charged slice of dark matter that you simply must get hold of, not to be missed by any means.

Next up we have Restless which sets off with a big and ballsy kick that pounds out a solid beat alongside rhythmic hats and tight drums and percussions. A deep probing bass swells up from the depths and takes control of the sound while teasing chords fade through. The track breaks and unleashes a very cool array of synths and chords that set the tone for our journey into this darkened world. A nod to the early Techno sounds is evident and sits perfectly in this contemporary construction. A hint of melody seeps through and keeps the track within the progressive realm while retaining its dark roots. A must have track that will definitely spruce up any set.
