Diamantopoulos Dionysis aka Concealed Truth returns to BP with the two tracker “Bookamvijas”. This 24 year old producer from Heraklion, Crete, Greece. He has been meddling with music from a very young age and travelled through almost every genre of music available. His last outing for Bonzai, “Smooth Rain” was well received as were a number of remixes.
The title track takes on a fantastic house flavour with chords playing a big role and creating quite a retro vibe which we love. The drums and percussions are arranged to perfection and compliment an amazing funky bassline. The break is where it’s at on this one as those house chords come to the fore as they build and build before slamming back into this wonderfully jacked up groove.
“Deck 6″ intros with minimal percussion and a fantastic echo styled effect, well rounded kicks soon take over alongside a tough bassline which gives that rolling effect. On the break a real cool hook fades through and takes the track to the next level before kicking back in to a full on progressive fuelled ride. Top stuff here and a must for any box!

Shimmer is back after his outing with LoQuai and their “Flying Fortress” track, a track that gained a lot of attention on major download portals with support from around the world. Here we see a monster release “Give Me” with a host of top quality remixes from some great producers.
The original mix is smooth ride through progressive house creating a relaxed atmosphere. Steady rhythms from the drums and percs with some real nice FX work. Bright melodic short synths build the mood with a wonderful chunky bassline underneath. Very hypnotic groove that locks you in for the duration.
First up on the remix is Chantola with his Give Me Techno Remix. Henrik transforms this tune beautifully with some quality techno elements, particularly in the kicks. Grungy acid blips formulate a great sound which becomes much more prominent on the break. Very well worked mix with huge appeal for many jocks.
Mylan takes us on one of his tech tours with his remix. Classic intro with kicks, hats and percussions building layer by layer. Groovy bassline adds a little bounce here and the FX work fits well. This track is a solid builder with teasing synths coming through on the break, top stuff.
Accatone takes things deeper with his Black Keys Remix. Staying true to the bassline as it bounces along we are treated to a masterclass indeed. Minimal percussions with a crisp hat and clap combi. The big focus of course are those keys, a wonderful display of deep house play that will stand up well in those late night rooms.
Concealed Truth return to BP with Cold Sun Ray Remix. Powerful progressive house at its finest with brilliantly subtle synth melodies and great FX. Nice and steady rhythm with another superb bassline will keep the bootys shakin to this. On the break the melodies are ramped up a notch and the vocal sample is the perfect addition along with the pads, very nice indeed.
Making his debut at BP we have Diamantopoulos Dionysis aka Concealed Truth with his prog house effort “Smooth Rain”. Diamantopoulos is a 24 year old producer from Heraklion, Crete, Greece. He has been meddling with music from a very young age and travelled through almost every genre of music available. At the age of 6 he started studying the classical guitar and 11 years later he got his B Upper Class degree, a very exciting talent indeed.
“Smooth Rain” takes us on a dark melancholic journey with emphasis on stunning melodic sequences. Deep hypnotic bass notes grab attention from the off while an understated kick and percussion holds the rhythm beautifully. A myriad of different instruments provide the melodies and an expert arrangement ties the track up brilliantly.
“Pink Slip” is a much brighter tune with sharper, crisp percussions and a contrasting deep bass. Again we see a lot of different instruments cover a multitude of melodies, lots going on and all marrying perfectly, very well constructed.
