PHILTHY CHIT – DICHOTIC (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The impressive Philthy Chit aka UK based Phil Taylor delivers the powerful progressive groover Dichoctic which comes backed up with a remix from Tribal Warriors. Phil is currently churning out top class work as shown in his last release Confabulate as well as releases on other labels including Perfecto Records with more in the pipeline soon. More recently his works have gained popularity with appearances on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends compilation. He remains an in demand remix artist with many requests coming in thick and fast. Check out Phil’s new radio show Perfecto Black on DI.FM which airs on the first Wednesday of every month from 6pm GMT where you’re sure to catch only the best sounds from Bonzai and beyond.

The Original Mix gets us going with a tough, pounding kick and sharp hat intro as metallic hits drop on the downbeat. A cool shuffling rhythm ensues as a deep bubbling bassline takes control of the sound. The deep bass remains a constant while a sub bass filters off to add an edgy touch. A fantastic ‘deep in the house’ vocal wafts through the sound beautifully and adds a great character to the sound. On the break cascading arps take the track deeper into the progressive world resulting in a super tight groove that will hold you in its grip for the duration. Superb stuff yet again from Phil and a must have track for sure.

The Stripped Mix is a much smoother track than its original sibling. The powerful deep grooves remain but with a slightly different drum arrangement that still packs a huge punch as it dishes out a full flowing rhythmic sequence. The cascading arps are still a big feature alongside that deep, solid bassline and house inspired vocal. Definitely not to be missed.

On the remix we have Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E./Push who we last saw on Bonzai Basiks with his Defiance EP. 2014 was another big year for Mike as his tracks and remixes gained chart topping status across various portals. Already in 2015 he has some great things lined up including more Push Live which always makes for exciting times. Don’t forget to check out Club Elite Sessions to stay up to date with all the goings on. The remix intros with a muted kick as a wasp-like sound fades through, instantly grabbing your attention. A strong throbbing bass rises up from the depths and is joined by bright, crispy hats and sharp claps which provide a cool rhythm to the sound. The kicks are transformed into nice punchy shots that balances things out beautifully. An intensity builds in the track as synths begin to form up alongside that very cool vocal. On the break the swirling synths are tweaked and filtered into a frenzy before we crash back down with a superb kick and analog synth combi. A proper tech fuelled groover here that is the perfect crossover track into the progressive world.

CHRISTOPHER HERMANN – POINT G (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

DJ and producer Christopher Hermann debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime Point G. Also known as KristÛf Hermann, he has been a lover of music all his life. His early years were spent listening to lots of music, but in 2003 everything changed after hearing Hernan Catteneo’s Renaissance Master Of Series. Progressive House became something he would pursue with gusto and he started to as much tracks as he could. In 2007 he made his first mixes under the name Christopher Hermann and quickly gained a reputation as a respected DJ with quality tunes and tight mixes. His tracks have appeared on labels like Klinik Room, Emotional Noise, BQ Recordings, Balkan Connection South America, Clinique Recordings and Crosslink Music. A fine addition to the label and hopefully more to come in the future.

First up we have Point G with its stunningly deep bass driven intro. Phat kicks are layered over a throbbing deep bass as wispy sounds fly through the sound. The rhythm gathers pace with the introduction of a cool hat and clap pattern. The track takes on an erotic flavour as various voices seduce the senses with their sexual appeal. Dark toned stabs litter the groove with cool house textures as the progressive edge drives the track. On the break things heat up to a feverish pitch as a female voice groans with pleasure before that huge kick and bass combo returns. Superb stuff that will go down a treat in the darker rooms.

High Heels & Lingerie intros with a snappy kick and a smooth plucked bass sequence while swirling stynths create a cool atmosphere. The groove goes deep here as that bass etches into your brain, hypnotizing your mind with its progressive prowess. Cascading notes bring a hint of melody as the layers build and create a solid rhythmic flow alongside the crispy hats and percussions. The break lets loose on the synths before slamming right back into the main groove. A top notch progressive cut you will not want to miss.

AUDIO NOIR – LIFE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

After a sublime remix on Quadran’s, Animals Rebellion, Audio Noir kicks off 2015 with the superb Life, which comes packed with three awesome remixes as well as two original versions. 2014 was extremely busy for Australia’s hardest working producer, a studio album, multiple releases and a plethora of remixes have put this guys at the top of his game. So much more to come from down under so make sure you stay tuned.

The Vox On mix intros with a cool scratchy percussion arrangement that leads into a pounding kick and sharp hat combi. Swirling strings bring a surreal feeling to the track with a melodic flavour that draws you in. The track breaks to reveal a stunning female vocal full of melancholy and the perfect contrast to the high pitched strings before descending into a deeper, darker progressive groove with the addition of a bubbling bass that adds a wonderfully warm texture to the sound. Excellent stuff yet again that will whet the appetite for those deep prog sets. Also, check out the Vox Off with the vocal stripped out to leave a sublime instrumental version.

First up on remix duties we have Alex Vidal with his deep and lush progressive grooves. Alex’s last outing, Pieces Of A Dream back in the last quarter of 2014 was very well received indeed with support coming in from all angles. Here he injects some fantastic prog vibes into the remix right from the off as a nice punchy kick is joined by crispy hats and a rolling bass that fades up beautifully to dominate the track. In the background pads form up and provide a wonderful atmosphere to the sound that fits perfectly with the darker tones. The bass is complimented by some very cool chord stabs that evolve throughout the track. On the break we get a glimpse of the vocal with its playful yet haunting feel. A true deep and hypnotic slice here that you will not want to miss.

The ever popular Yuriy From Russia is next up on the remix. In 2014 Yuriy churned out multiple remixes for Bonzai, including a remix on Audio Noir’s Almost Famous, that gained lots of attention and charted across many platforms. He also got showings on many compilations including Club Traxx Progressive House 13 and Bonzai & Friends Underground Progressive Collection among others. Here the track intros with a cool round of percussions that layer up into a smooth flowing rhythmic vibe. A deep and lush bass takes over the track and drives the groove beautifully into progressive utopia. Swirling pads litter the background and bring a melodic edge to the sound as the vocals tease their way through. The track builds nicely and those playful vocals really add great character. The bass develops into a groovy mover as various notes begin to cascade through. Another top notch effort from Yuriy that will be a welcome addition to any set.

Narel aka Nick Simmons rounds up this package with his Remix Parts 1 & 2. We last saw Narel on Green Martian with the outstanding The View At 2 AU. On top of that he also got an appearance on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends compilation. Great to see this guy back and we hope to see more of him in the future. The remix today comes in two parts, the intro brings a myriad of synths and strings that form intricate and colourful patterns. The track takes off with a fantastic punchy kick that really dominates and works perfectly with the mid range sounds. A somewhat laidback groove comes off the bass as it meanders through the sound working in tandem with the melodic flow of the track before it begins its rise with superb note changes. On the break we get drawn into a beautiful melodic sequence as cascading arps fade through and lead us into the second half of the remix which becomes a slightly more upbeat affair. The vocal sweeps through the sound throughout and brings with it a contrasting melancholy. A stunning journey into the progressive world from Narel making this a track you will not want to miss.

QUADRAN – ANIMALS REBELLION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Veteran DJ and producer Quadran aka Philippe Van Mullem makes a welcome return with the fantastic Animals Rebellion which comes packed with two superb remixes. His last outing Rumour performed very well indeed with much support across the board. Since then his tracks have appeared on multiple compilations through various labels, including the 2012 stomper Vertigo which appears on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends mega pack. Delighted to see this man return and we look forward to more in the future.

First up is the Original Mix which sets out with an energetic intro filled with a rolling bassline and a nice punchy kick alongside crispy hats. The bassline gets you locked right into the groove as various sounds begin to filter through, creating a cool, colourful image. The track breaks to reveal an atmospheric pad that brings a sense of euphoria to the sound. The pads ebb and flow as a myriad of cascading arps shine through and give the track its hook. Quite a nostalgic sounding track here from a master of the original trance sound and well worth queuing up in those upbeat progressive sets.

The man from down under, Audio Noir, delivers Another Audio Noir Odyssey, and yet again we find ourselves totally locked into his tribalistic, futuristic vibes. 2014 proved to be extremely productive for this talented artist, he had his hand in multiple remixes as well as an exhaustive release schedule. On top of all that he had his debut album, Almost Famous see the light of day, and on the back of that we saw two volumes full of top class remixes from various tracks off the album. No doubt 2015 will be even bigger, we hope so. Here the remix intros with a cool glitchy sound which is soon joined by a tough edged bassline that fills the sound beautifully. A steady rhythm is formed with the addition of sharp hats, snappy claps and a tight tribal fuelled slapped drum arrangement. The intro gains intensity with a sudden burst of rich synth pads as distant kicks tease their way in, the track fades off to reveal a very cool spoken vocal before we slam right into the 4×4 beat we’ve been craving. The relentless bassline and the sub retro synths make for a truly hypnotic experience as the track settles in for the duration. The break hones in on those wonderfully sharp pads and takes us back into the main groove with ease. Another top quality slice, not to be missed.

Relaunch returns with another absolute stomper of a remix. His stunning sounds continue to garner great support from many around the world, as seen with his last release, Sleepwalking EP. A very much in-demand artist whose sounds span various labels and cover various genres with ease. His radioshow, Electronic Delight just recently passed its 50th episode and has an ever increasing fan base. Expect more from this guy in 2015. On the remix he holds no bounds as he unleashes the power of a strong and driving progressive groove on our senses. The intro crashes in with wonderful pads and sharp synth layers alongside solid beats and cool FX. The bassline lurks in the background with its deep drone allowing the myriad of mid range sounds time to play. The short break offers a respite before slamming right back into this full on prog monster of a tune. Perfect ammo for those late night sets.

The Balance Mix intros with a solid bass and kick combi that raises the energy levels right from the off. Shuffling hats give off a smooth rhythmic flow and blend perfectly with the deeper bass and punchy kicks. Big focus on the melodies with wispy pads that bring a richness to the sound, alongside a catchy note sequence. The synths are where it’s at here, big trance-like stabs with an infectious appeal that will definitely raise the roof at any venue. Top notch stuff and a definite must have.
