Atlan delivers a solid progressive groover with tight beats and a cool rolling bassline. The track builds steadily and keeps you locked in as various layers are revealed. An intensity comes through on the synths which are backed up by some rising pads real cool vocal FX. On the break a plucky arp takes over as those rich strings add to the melodies before the track reaches climax and we are thrust back into the main groove. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Believe intros with a nice punchy kick alongside a cool drum pattern and crispy hats and soon descends into a deep grooving progressive monster with a dose of gritty sounds, winding synths and an aggressive bassline that dominates throughout. Cool voices sweep around and contrasts beautifully with the deeper elements and bright melodic arps. A real solid slice of prog here that is a definite must have track.

Mayhem is an obsessive in your face 4×4 track that delivers a solid punch with its no-nonsense kicks and filtered percussions. The bass is where it’s at here, deep rooted pulsating notes are drawn up form below and really take command of the sound. A tribalistic vibe comes through with the wonderful drum arrangement and tight patterns. This one is a must for those late night sessions, not to be missed.

THORSTEN HAMMER – BLACK HOLE EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

German DJ producer Thorsten Hammer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb two tracker Black Hole EP. Thorsten grew up with the early 90’s German sound and frequented clubs such as Omen and Dorian Gray, this is when he really fell in love with electronic music. After many years of DJing he decided he would try to find his own unique sound. In 2011 he started up his own label, Ametist Records which focused on bringing in new talent and Tech House and Deep House with room left for some Techno. Aside from Ametist his tracks have been released on a hugely impressive amount of labels. Delighted to have him on board.

We kick off with Black Hole Breakfast with its bright intro packed full of snappy snares, crispy hats and punchy kicks. A deep, probing bass soon follows with an accompanying chord to get the groove flowing. Cool vocal one shots litter the sound and give a nice added texture to the vibe. In the background various pads and strings are on the rise and give way to a warbling riff that soon dominates for the duration. A real nice slice of deep Tech House that you will not want to miss.

Soda intros with a nice crispy vibe as various hats and cymbals combine before a punchy kick takes over. Rich pads and strings take over on the first break and bring a beautiful atmospheric vibe which is backed up by a very cool singing vocal and a sinister deep spoken vocal. The track settles into a deep groover complete with a phat bassline that drives the track brilliantly. An expertly crafted slice of prog tech with wonderful contrasting vibes, a must have.

MANU RIGA & MATT HOLLIDAY – SUBMERGED NEEDS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matt and Manu are back in duo form again with another sublime, tantalising progressive cut. These guys are currently hitting top form with their works, they set the bar high when they delivered You Are Contagious back in February and without doubt they have maintained their attention to quality this time around. So much going on at the moment for these guys, individually and together. They have successfully launched their own radioshow Ethnoscience and have appeared as guests on many other shows over the last few months including a spot on The Diversity of Progressive. Manu continues his run of top notch pressings with remixes for various artists including his own remix on Blufeld’s A World Less Ordinary and with Matt on Dark Soul Project & Mathov featuring Fe Malefiz’s We Are Not Alone. He is also working alongside another superb artist on a new project which we will learn more about soon, so stay tuned. Matt also continues to deliver the goods, he is a constant feature on Joof and has a brand new single coming very soon on Bonzai Progressive as well as a feature on Recoverworlds newest compilation. Lots of things happening for Matt in the coming months covering both releases and DJing, so keep an eye out as he could be playing somewhere near you soon.

Submerged Needs intros with a dark atmospheric vibe as tight drums combine with a nice big chunky kick and FX that lurk in the background with a sinister edge. A deep throbbing bass shores up the rear as various layers begin to rise including rich strings and a superb ethnic voice. A short break winds down before we get locked into the solid grooves of the track complete with chugging bassline and fantastic synths. A subtle melodic flavour rings throughout the sound as we are led deep into the progressive world. The main break throws up more of that stunning ethnic flavour and a colourful selection of sounds before getting right back into full on mode. A truly deep slice of progressive that is not to be missed.

Silence In My Head can only be described as a stunning piece of work. A super tight construction filled with punchy kicks and a bassline that melts into the groove beautifully while chugging right through the sound. A superb display of various little synth shots litter the groove and build a kaleidoscope of perfectly matched sounds. On the break we find ourselves deep within a classic progressive vibe as a haunting vocal comes through alongside a sweet melodic sequence. The lead synth is where it’s at here and coupled with that driving bassline we get a nod to the great days of progressive sounds. A big hitter here that will definitely be featuring in many, many sets all over.

TOMIN TOMOVIC & ANIKO TOMOWITCH featuring CHERIF – SUMMER’S GONE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Debut appearance on Bonzai Progressive for Tomin, Aniko and Cherif with the wonderful deep progressive tones of Summer’s Gone. First time venture for this trio of artists with each bringing their own unique flavour to the table. Bratislava based Tomin has been around the scene for quite a while having started out in 2004 as resident DJ in Exit and Mecca before getting his teeth into music production. He has flirted with many styles of music but always brings out a deep emotional vibe.

Summer’s Gone Original Mix gets right into a smooth groove right from the off with those punchy kicks and subtle drums which are contrasted by snappy, sharp claps. In the background a nice melody floats around before the track takes a nose dive into progressive depths with a superbly deep and throbbing bass that will have sub woofers quaking. Cool synth notes litter the sound and form a textured layer throughout as sweeping pads and strings dish out a cool atmospheric vibe. On the break the track whittles down to reveal a super sweet melody as soft plucks are faced off by that bass before we are plunged back into the groove for the duration. Top notch cut here you will definitely want in your collection.

The Deeper Dub Mix of Summer’s Gone takes on a deeper role as the more progressive elements are enhanced. That deep throbbing bass remains and is a big focus in the sound alongside very subtle synth plucks and chords. As the track evolves we are drawn into the depths as the hypnotic groove takes hold of your senses. The break throws up a hint of melody but is overshadowed by that powerful bass. One for the late night sessions here, a must have.

Divergence intros with a cool drum arrangement that boasts cool hat and percussion patterns alongside a muted kick. That kick gets its punch on soon after as the layers build creating a nice, flowing pro house groove. The bassline comes at us with a merciless reverberating prowess that will definitely have the floors shakin. Colourful textures evolve from the various synth sounds on offer as the track mesmerizes with each phrase. Tucked away deep inside the track are subtle house chords that adds a great character to the sound. A relentlessly powerful track that will sit well in the deeper sets for sure.
