DENNIS FRANCHI & HOUSE LOVIN CRIMINALS – BASETIMES EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dennis returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Basetimes EP and HE brings along the House Lovin Criminals for their debut appearance with the equally fantastic, feet stomping On The Road Again. We last saw Dennis around April 2015 with his brilliant four tracker entitled, Takin Care Of My Shit, which gained a lot of support on the circuit. Dennis and studio partner C-Les make up the House Lovin Criminals and their mission is to take various house music fusions and bring them to new heights while retaining a classic vibe. The guys have known each other for a number of years and regularly DJed together at various parties. They went their different ways for a time before somehow getting back together and ultimately getting into the studio. A truly fresh approach from this dynamic duo and we have no doubt they will make their mark on the scene in a big way.

House Lovin Criminals’ – On The Road Again intros with a superb syncopated rhythm as chunky kicks and stabbing chords deliver the infectious groove. A cool meandering bassline comes through and sets the track firmly into its solid groove. On the break we get strange sweeping sounds that ebb and flow throughout the rest of the track. A hugely popular classic vocal shows up which adds to the retro themes running through and works so well with the sound. An absolute monster of a track that will definitely set floors alight, one to watch.

Basetimes intros with a classic styled punchy kick with a cool low end after taste and crispy hat combi. A solid FM bassline takes over and we get locked into the powerful grooves of the track. Tight drums form up creating a dancey vibe that forces you to shake that booty. Cool sweeping FX glide across the sound alongside a simple one shot vocal. Top notch stuff from Dennis that will surely get the floors moving.

Never Know takes a tough stance right from the off and powerful kicks are joined by harsh, super crisp hats and cymbals. A distant sounding vocal fades through and keeps the track locked into the deeper grooves that come pouring out. The track breaks to reveal a fantastic walking bassline that plucks its way through delivering an energetic vibe and creating a solid low end for the sound. Brilliant effort that will feature in many sets no doubt.

Trouble intros with a muted kick that leans towards the clipped higher frequency and is soon paired with snappy claps and prominent brushed snares that create its own rhythmic groove. A deep resonating bass drives the track on and leaves a wonderfully deep trail in its wake. Echoed vocals fade in and are joined by a gritty, harsh sounding synth lead that takes over the sound while the bass holds everything together beautifully. A tough edged, deep slice of house music that will definitely appeal to many.

DENNIS FRANCHI – TAKING CARE OF MY SHIT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dennis Franchi makes a much anticipated and a most welcome return to Bonzai with the four tracker, Taking Care Of My Shit. Dennis has racked up a raft of top notch releases on the likes of Creaminal Records, Bonzai Basiks, Progrez, Wasabi Recordings, Hi Fi Stories and more since 2009. His last outing on these shores came on remix duty for Fab Code’s Midnight Shuffle which appeared on the epic Bonzai & Friends Underground Progressive compilation. Great to see him back and we hope to see much more in the future.

The title track, Taking Care Of My Shit sets off with a nice progressive vibe as punchy kicks are met with a cool shuffling hat sequence and perfectly balanced bass tones that rise up throughout the sound. This obsessive straight to the floor track will hypnotize as the layers continue to build around a solid bassline and some cool vocal shots that pop up from time to time. An expertly crafted synth arrangement takes a lot of the focus and will definitely keep the ears trained and honed in for the duration. Brilliant stuff from Dennis that will definitely find its way into many crates no doubt.

Nice big punchy kicks and crispy hats provide the intro on Winter Noise alongside a cool pulsing bass and gritty noise effects. Cascading synths flow through the sound as subtle melodies expand within to deliver an almost dream-like, mesmerizing state. Cool stabs bring a true house vibe that melts into the deep rhythms and solid no-nonsense groove. Top notch yet again, a must have track.

Little Mil intros with a punchy Techno fuelled kick that leaves a warm after touch. Classic styled percussion form up with snappy snares and sharp claps and shuffling hats. A super low sub bass throbs into the groove and will definitely give the woofers a run for their money while literally blowing the socks off all who gather. A very cool retro vibe is evident as those fantastic synths rise up and deliver an infectious sequence that will hook you right in. Expertly crafted drum patterns will move the floors with ease as the groove takes hold, superb stuff.

3+1 provides a trek into a tech fuelled progressive charged world filled with tight beats and cool rhythms. A fantastic grooving bassline takes charge and will definitely get the floors on the move as reverbed synths cascade through the sound. On the break those lush synth dominate before giving way to the solid bassline once more, this is one track you need in your box.

BEST OF 2K11 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

 

End of the year compilation, including all the best tracks released in Bonzai Progressive in 2011.
Includes original tracks and remixes from 21street, Phony Orphants, Quadran, Planisphere, Manu Riga, Zas & Sanze presents Mindgamers, Thorin, SynnyS, Citizen 42, Chantola, Heinrich Kantholz & Drill Wagen, Soundmodul & Moffous, Fab Code, Tony Awake & Free Mind, Luca Lombardi, Funky Space Pirates, Cee Cee Cox, Tripzone, Philthy Chit, Dennis Franchi, Storyteller and Daiko.

Launched end 1994 under the name Bonzai Trance Progressive. The name was bit more accurate back in those days. Since then BTP has evolved into BP which is more than just a progressive trance label. Since late 2k9 we decided to distance ourselves from the trance scene since todays trance sound doesn’t really fit out vision anymore. Today the label is not afraid to take a leap into multiple directions, with a touch of electro, minimal, house and any other style – without forgetting the main focus is to deliver a quality progressive sound.
