DJ DIMITRI – NORTH EAST EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dimas Ramadian aka Jakarta based DJ and producer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic North East EP. A popular DJ in the worlds of House and Techno and everything in between, this guy boasts an impressive back catalogue spanning back to 2008. Dimas has gained the respect of his peers after cutting his teeth in the Indonesian underground scene, by 2005 he was a well-known artist and soon after he started to produce his own sounds. His extensive musical knowledge allows him to command any dance floor with his choice cuts. He is the proud presenter of Indonesia’s first worldwide podcast, namely Bagong Odyssey With DJ Dimitri, and this has given him the exposure to work with talented artists from around the world and which also led to the creation of his own label Bagong Digital. With appearances on many labels including The 45MF Group, Bagong Digital, Celestial Tracks, LW Recordings, Laxity Recordings, ACID029 and State Of Play, we’re delighted to have him on board at BP.

North East intros with a nice punchy kick drum and crispy hat combi alongside a cool and very subtle synth that results in a superb progressive flow. A deep rumbling bassline dominates the low frequencies and powers the track on relentlessly. The drums are tight and will keep the floors rocking no doubt as darker vibes come through. Throughout the track we are treated to some ultra cool electronic snare rolls and early synth style sounds that give the track a lot of character. A definite must have for any late night prog set.

South West sets off with a well rounded kick drum and a tribalistic drum section. Soft hi hats are joined by various percussions to deliver a tight and solid beat to move to. Some nice synth work provides colourful textures that shift within the sound beautifully as the driving beats keep the groove moving. The bassline sits perfectly with a very powerful throb that reverberates right through the sound yet allows the higher frequencies to shine. Warm pads are dominant on the break as they swirl overhead before we are slammed back into full on mode. A wonderfully deep and rich progressive sound that is not to be missed.

MATAN CASPI – FRAGILE SUNRISE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matan Caspi remains a powerful force in the progressive world and as ever he delivers the good once more with Fragile Sunrise which is backed up with no less than three stunning remixes from top class artists Manu Riga, Rick Pier O’Neil and Hady Tarek. Last time out Matan delighted with Celebrium before an appearance on the bumper Bonzai & Friends 500 Remixes pack. We’ll let the music do the talking here, enjoy.

The Original Mix is laced with all the traits we’ve come to love about Matan’s work. A real sense of deep progressiveness with wonderful lush tones and contrasting sounds. The drum sections delivers a solid rhythmic foundation for the groove to take hold. The track drives forward with a fantastic low end filled with plush, probing basses while the mid range dishes out cool synths and FX. The break reveals a superb synth line that cascades up and down before slamming us right back into full on mode. Another epic slice from this super talented artist.

First up on the remix we have Rick Pier O’Neil who is enjoying great success with various tracks on labels like 76 Recordings, Balkan Connection, Green Martian and Bonzai Progressive to name just a few. A hard working artist both DJing and in the studio, we know we’re in for a real treat when this guy is at the helm. The remix intros with a dark stab that is soon joined by a subtle bass and muted kick drum. Scathing FX come through creating a mysterious and edgy sound before the track takes off with chunky kicks and bright crispy hats. A rumbling bass takes over and we find ourselves totally locked on to the solid prog groove. As the layers build we’re hypnotised by the sound making this a sure fire weapon for the floors.

Widely regarded as a top class artist by a panel of peers across the globe, Manu Riga steps up to the remix desk with his Darkside Remix. A hugely talented and gifted artist, Adriaan Baussens has dedicated himself to music for a great number of years, this has resulted in countless tracks and remixes that continue to garner support for this Belgian native. The last year has been a tough one for this guy, but still he has managed to wow us with his works, and to top it all off he – along with Bonzai Progressive – will proudly present his much anticipated studio album, coming in around June 2016. We say thank you to Manu Riga, and in the meantime check out this superb remix. Taking a detour into the darker side of prog, Manu takes us along for the ride and right from the get go you can tell it’s gonna be epic. A swelling bass ebbs and flows as punchy kick drums are lined up against sharp hi hats. Manu’s sublime signature sound oozes out of the track as tight drums layer up into a solid rhythmic groove as the progressive elements evolve. On the break we get some cool synths alongside a deep sinister sounding vocal before crashing right back into full on mode. Another fine example of the diversity this guy can show and a definite must have track.

It’s been a while since we last saw Hady Tarek and we’re happy to see him back on remix duties here. His last outing was back in April 2015 with The Boat Effect which gained great support across the board. The remix intros with a classic styled thumping kick drum and bright crispy hat as various percussions come through with each phrase. The drum section provides a steady rhythm as cool synths begin to thrive. The big hitter here though is that bassline, a wonderful, powerful, pulsating deep low end bass that will have the bins shuddering. Throughout the track we get hooked onto a beautifully tweaked synth line that captivates as it twists and turns. Top notch stuff here you will not want to miss.

Profound is a deep progressive grooving track that will sit beautifully in any late night set with its lush tones and captivating nature.

The remix opens with a cool arp which is soon joined by a nice, well rounded thumping kick drum. Cool percussions begin to appear delivering a shuffling rhythm that will get the bodies moving towards the floor.

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.
