Bonzai favourite Crocy teams up with stunning Canadian vocalist Ashley Berndt for “Cry”. Ashley has a very impressive repertoire of vocals, she also creates her own melodies and writes her own lyrics.
“Cry” takes us on a beautiful progressive journey, on the intro the kick and percussion arrangement builds up a superbly deep and laidback bass groove with deep rooted piano chords making a show. High pitched strings and pads take us through to the drop where the sultry vocals appear with melancholic flavour. The vocals paint a stunning picture while the melodies in the music will take you right into the story, what a great collaboration and no doubt will be well received.
Next up is “Recht” with another laidback approach to the progressive house sound. Tight drum arrangement sits over subtle percussions that build up a nice flowing rhythmic vibe. In contrast the deep bass transforms from soft and rounded into tough and gritty effortlessly and this adds a strong dynamic. The break throws out a strange melody as that gritty bass lurks behind, superb stuff from this darkly groove!

Now in its third instalment, Eyepatch delves into the vaults to deliver another ram packed exclusive vinyl filled with top quality deep house grooves. Four top class tunes with tracks and remixes from some of the best artists Eyepatch has to offer. A must have for any vinyl junkie and your decks are gonna love it!
First up we journey into the sounds of “Backstage Queen” from Dimitry Liss & Nasrawi, both these guys have appeared on this series before and we just had to get them back again. This track is a deep house groove that grabs you and holds you in its grip for the duration. Sublime deep bass and a well crafted arrangement are held together with a quite brilliant vocal sequence throughout the track.
Daniele Kama’s remix of Wonji’s “Convince Me” is up next with a more tribal feel, lots of bongos doing the rounds and the vocal takes control when in effect. A deep bassline commands throughout and on the break some classic samples are evident, perfect fodder for vinyl and already a firm favourite on the circuit.
The awesome talents of Dimitry Liss gives us his Re-Rub of Project KF’s “Priority Of Night”, and taking things to a deeper level. Cool sharp hats accompanied with a tight kick set up a solid groove. The sounds are arranged brilliantly with a few added vocal samples thrown in, monster tune for any floor.
Crocy’s “Bouquet” carves out a cool groove with a laidback approach to deep tech house. Subtle intro with percussions building the rhythm and the bass shining through for an awesome ride. On the break funky keys make an appearance changing the landscape slightly and then straight back to a solid deep groove, top stuff.

Sixth installment in the My House Is Your House series, this time with original tracks and remixes by Matan Caspi, Rogerio Martins, Piek, Efron, Accatone, Joal, Luis Bravo, GarcyNoise, Electric Bastards, Dimitry Liss, Daniele Kama, Ecco, Wonji, Kike Mayor, Charles Ramirez, Chanelle Pearl, Oraa, Brett Lawrence, Rob McCarthy and Crocy.
Leicester, UK based DJ’s and producers Aaron Taylor and Charlie Robinson make up Rue Duo. The guys are making their debut on Bonzai with full on prog house monster “Set & Let”, and with a slew of quality mixes which makes for an awesome package. Rue Duo have a few releases under their belts on labels like Black Hole, Straight Up and Wildlife with support from the likes of Erick Morillo, Tom Novy and Lucien Foort to name a few with more projects in the works for the future.
The original mix is a straight shooting prog house tune with a stunning vocal. Nice steady rhythms and a deep chunky bassline converge to give off a sense of depth with the vocal adding contrast. Cleverly arranged percussions and minimal synths make this tune stand out and is a sure fire winner on any floor.
Dark progressive maestro Manu Riga steps up to remix duties and completely transforms the original into something very different. Super punchy kicks intro this track with a brilliant bassline providing a strong groove. On the break we get a very subtle melody before thumping back into the main groove and that bassline, great use of the vocal also. A master of the darker side of prog at work, this is a tune that will be on many playlists.
Tech stalwart Crocy returns to the mixing desk with his remix. The track begins with a cool low end kick that builds to a bassline full of lush heavy vibes, coupled with a round of beautifully arranged percussions and backed up with more of this wonderful vocal. Top notch tech yet again from Crocy and a must have for any box.
Another regular Rishi K. is up next with a fine example of prog house. The vocal forms the most part of the intro before we kick right into a strong, solid groove made up of thick kicks and a round of metallic type percussions. Cool stabby synths weave their way throughout the track and a deep bassline props everything up beautifully, pure quality!
