AUDIO NOIR – R3WIND EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Audio Noir continues his run of top quality EP’s with the brilliant four tracker, ‘R3wind’. Each track takes us on a journey through retro sounds that are garnered with a modern twist.

First up we are transported back to ‘1988’ with a supped up ride into breakbeat and classic house grooves. The intro boasts a full on breakbeat vibe with a few vocal samples coming through. We soon get into a 4/4 pattern as a super cool old school bass fills the sound. The breakdown ushers in some nice strings before slamming right back into the sound along with superb retro synth samples that are instantly recognisable. A bit of the old hardcore on Bonzai Progressive which will draw a lot of attention, no doubt.

‘1989’ intros with a cool percussion line alongside a nice and simple synth. Big chunky kicks soon take over and pack a huge punch. A deep resonating bass come in and a driving rhythm ensues. You will connect instantly with the classic vocal sample, and not only that, you will once again remember ’89 as the hoover sounds dominate. So many elements make up this track and even thought the sounds have been given a modern makeover you will relate in a big way, superb stuff.

Classic breaks are the basis of the intro to ‘1990’, and alongside a well crafted percussion section your dancing feet will be moved involuntarily. Phat kicks and crispy hats keep the rhythms flowing alongside a cool synth line and ultra classic vocal samples. The break down has a wonderful hard edged synth that bounces along and takes us back into the main track with a fantastic deep bass in tow. As if we aren’t spoiled enough, in comes an awesome old school piano riff that will blow the roof off any venue!!

We end this brilliant EP with ‘1991’. Massive chunky kicks provide the intro alongside cool FX and shuffling hats. A huge dominating bassline soon takes over and will be enough to shatter any sound system into submission. In the background we get a taste of some very cool vocal samples while up top we have an infectious synth hook which fits the sound perfectly. The track shifts slightly as the bass intensifies bringing in a gated pattern before coming back around to the main sound, just amazing!

MATAN CASPI – JUST LET GO (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matan Caspi delivers his stunning ‘Just Let Go’ which is backed up with three superb remixes from Audio Noir, Mindgamers and deepAlexander. Matin’s last outing was at the start of 2014 with the wonderful ‘I Wanna’ which saw a lot of support from all over.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with super crispy hats that gets right up in your face as a nice chunky kick leads into a deep lush bass that comes through to balance things out beautifully. Cool vocal samples dash in and out of the sound adding a nice flow to the vibe. On the break a smooth synth arrangement takes over adding a hint of melody that gives off a contrasting groove, top notch from Matin yet again.

Tallinn based DJing and production duo Mindgamers are first up on remix duty. The guys have been enjoying a lot of attention for their works as their own productions as well as remixes are being picked up all over the world and featuring heavily in many sets and radioshows. Here the guys do what they do best, rock the joint! Right from the off the grooves are infectious, thumpy kicks and a sharp hi hat sequence are the perfect combination. The vocal samples off the original are used well and that bass just teases and teases. Stabby synths bring in a cool vibe and on the break we see these take full control before slamming right back into the main track to continue on this epic progressive house ride!

Audio Noir is up next and yet again he does not disappoint. His remix, Another Audio Noir Trip, is quite simply stunning. He has a way of taking a track and transforming it into something fresh and different while keeping true to the original. Nice whispered vocal on the intro which leads into a cool kick and a sublime percussion arrangement with some fantastic vocal samples over the top. The groove builds and builds before exploding into an analog fuelled, bass driven monster. Quite an energetic vibe off this as the layers build around the track culminating with a superb vibrant synth. Brilliant stuff out of Australia and not to be missed!

deepAlexander aka Sasa Skrobar rounds up the remixes with his stunning take. Sasa’s last release ‘Midnight Launch’ was well received and is a testament to the skills on offer. Big chunky kicks get us going with expertly tweaked vocal samples and fading synths sitting in the background. A cool rhythmic groove is built with the introduction of some great percussion patterns. The track takes a funky turn as a deep throbbing bass is brought forward together with a catchy, soulful vocal. The track is totally driven by that classy bass which has so much character as it binds the track together beautifully. Top stuff and a track you will want in your collection!

SOFT KNEES – REFLEXION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Soft Knees aka Finnish duo Antti Mantysaari and Jarno Kilpia are back to BP with ‘Reflexion’. The guys’ last outing ‘Couchclocking’ gained support from many quarters and here we will no doubt be treated to more of the same.

The Original Mix sets off with a nicely tweaked kick with cool clip on the top, these beats set the scene beautifully and are soon followed by a bubbly bassline that controls the low end with ease. Sweeping synths make a show and become a big feature of the sound as they tease out a cool melody. The rhythms really let loose with the aid of some tight drum patterns while on the break things whittle down to just those sweepy synths and some stunning acid lines. Superb progressive house sounds that will do well on any floor.

The ever popular Kevin Vega steps up to remix duty first. Kevin is fresh off the back of his stunning ‘Andromeda’ which marked his return to BP after a short break. Here he pulls out all the stops once more to deliver s surreal slice of progressive goodness. The intro boasts a dominating percussion section alongside a nice and chunky kick, this sets up the groove perfectly as the rhythms slowly unwind at the start of this epic ride. Subtle pads begin to fade through and bring with them a hint of melody making you want more. The bass shatters into the sound and transforms the track so beautifully giving it that real progressive edge. A story is to be told in the ever evolving melodies and that makes this track a truly awesome listening experience, top notch yet again!

UK based Cordoba aka Lloyd Trimmer gives us his remix and what a job this guy does yet again. Lloyd’s latest track ‘Surface’ has been performing extremely well on the circuit and on download portals, this is a testament to the quality on offer from a talented producer. Here the remix intros with a full on progressive flavour, chunky kicks and crispy hats provide a solid platform for hypnotic synths and a superb rolling bassline which becomes infectious after just a short time. The break focuses on stabby synths with the bass rising up from the depths to take us back into this absolutely stunning slice, a must for any box!

Smok debuts on Bonzai Progressive with his remix and what an impression he makes. The track intros with a cool deep flavour as chunky kicks pump out a lush groove. Smooth deep synth stabs are the perfect companion for the plucky bass, the bass itself is a real groovy affair which will have you on the dancefloor pronto! Tight drum arrangements provide for a solid and steady rhythmic feel and on the break this continues with some nice percussion alongside a cool funky element. Top stuff for this guys debut and a must for those groovier progressive sets.

APSARA – IN MOTION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Apsara debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this stunner entitled ‘In Motion’, which comes with two superb remixes. Apsara commands huge respect in the electronic music world. She has built a reputation as a forward thinking, stand out DJ and this has been recognised by her peers on many occasions, most notably when John 00 Fleming described her as a “super talent”. Having played all over the world and released her music on top quality labels, we are delighted to be welcoming Apsara into the Bonzai family.

The Original Mix has a quite energetic feel with a jagged bass coursing along to the backdrop of some very cool drum percussions. Nice tough kicks soon follow alongside crisp hats creating a flowing groove. Heavy duty metallic sounds become a focus on the track as the bass deepens giving off a pulsating vibe. Strong progressive edge here with a very cool organic flow, not to be missed.

UK born but now residing in Greece, Steve Self marks his Bonzai debut with a stunning remix. Steve started producing in 2004 and is currently learning classical piano. He got into electronic music during his student days in Manchester where he organised parties and held his own residencies. Steve has also released on many labels covering different genres. Here he gets the remix going with a surreal intro full of garbled vocals that etch a strange vision. Nice and chunky kicks take control soon after and a very well constructed drum and percussion section soon get the rhythms flowing. A cool deep bass lurks in the rear before easing into full flow with lush texture. Full of quirky sounds and quality FX this track is an epic ride that will be a big feature in many sets, no doubt!

Hoova & White Resonance debut on Bonzai with this simply amazing remix. The guys boast an absolute horde of quality releases across many top labels. They are a formidable pair with the progressive house realm and they also delve into other genres on occasion. Here the guys get the remix up to boiling point with a fine display of production skills. Nice and smooth intro with a simple percussion tap and a beautiful melodic pad which transforms into lush chords with a phat kick over the top. A top class vocal that just oozes classic house is the perfect accompaniment to those chords and gives this track a truly house vibe. The deep bass though keeps the track firmly with the progressive range making this an absolute must for any box, top stuff!

KEVIN VEGA – ANDROMEDA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Kevin Vega makes a very welcome return to Bonzai with his three tracker entitled ‘Andromeda’. Kevin remains a popular figure around Bonzai and he is always on hand to deliver some fantastic remixes as well as keeping us hooked with his own material.

First up we have ‘Andromeda’ which sets off on a silky smooth progressive road trip filled with a myriad of cool sounds. The groove here is just divine as the kicks meander along with ease and are backed up with a subtle percussion arrangement. A big feature on the track is the attention to detail as intricate sounds are woven together beautifully. The break descends into a world of wispy delight with a cool vocal sample keeping the ears trained perfectly. Great stuff from Kevin and not to be missed.

‘Consolidate’ intros with a nice punchy kick with a smooth percussion underlay. The bass begins to form from way down below and bubbles up to the surface to get the asses shakin. Expertly crafted synths provide a classy arp which is complimented with a sweeping pad and a hint of melody. The track evolves sweetly with an intensity being generated through raspy sounds and culminating in a very enjoyable journey.

Lastly we have ‘Destiny’ which gets going with a chunky kick that packs a massive punch. The beat drops off revealing a distant synth that leads the way for a nice flowing bassline. The sounds start to come out of nowhere and create a very fine and flowing groove with percussions spicing up the rhythm brilliantly. A very nice set builder for sure.
