YAROSLAV LENZYAK – JUPITER (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='117752956']

 

Fresh from his last release, “Panorama”, Yaroslav Lenzyak shows up at Eyepatch with a surreal slice of deep house grooves on this three tracker “Jupiter”. This very talented producer is putting Ukraine firmly on the EDM map with his unique brand of deep house and progressive vibes, and with much more to come it is for sure exciting times ahead.

First up is “Jupiter”, a wonderfully lush and surreal deep cut. The track intros with beautiful easy flowing synths, the kicks ease in gently before their full force begins to pound setting us off on a fantastic journey through house. Nice and simple hats alongside a minimal percussion arrangement that adds a lot of character. A low end droning bass shores up the groove while the big focus is on an awesome array of synth sounds that blend together superbly.

“Delta” intros with cool synths over a complex and very well crafted drum and percussion arrangement while the layers build slowly into a full on deep vibe. The myriad of FX work so well on the sound as a plethora of chords build up to a solid house groove making this a must for any of the deeper sets out there.

“Phantom” gets going with a huge kick intro backed up with some cool percussions and surreal synth pads. Soon a deep pulsating bass takes over giving off a hypnotic vibe while the synths begin to transform adding a new dimension in the sound. An epic ride that will dig deep down into your soul, a definite must in any box.

ITTAI BARKAI – DOST (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='114237351']

 

Israeli born Ittai Barkai returns to EP with his track “Dost” which comes with a superb remix. Ittai is a firm favourite at Bonzai HQ and it’s always great to see his work come through.

The Original Mix is a true reflection on Ittai’s work, deep, soulful house music with a very warm sound. Tight arrangements on the drums and percs set out a strong rhythmic groove, a constant synth chord sits in the back while funky stabs do the business up front. A real cool and funky treat for any house set, superb!

Another popular figure among the Eyepatch contingent is Daniel Ray with his fantastic remix. The track intros with a smooth deep undertone and a contrasting soft melody. Nice and thick chunky kicks ramp up the groove as the percussion begins to build. A low end subtle bass comes through as lots of simple melodies appear. Very nice track indeed with something about it that will grab a lot of attention.

SEBASTIEN DESAY – SO AWA EP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='113476990']

 

French born and based in Lyon Sebastien Desay returns with his two track “So Awa EP”. Sebastien’s last release on Eyepatch was the very well received “Sounds Of Sun EP”.

The title track is a tech fuelled stomper with tribal elements as evident through the fantastic percussions and in particular the bongos and tablas. A very simple yet extremely effective vocal sample dominates the track throughout adding huge character to the sound. The deep bass sits very well and holds the track up nicely, great stuff.

“Wooky” gets moving with classic chunky kicks and hats alongside a great vocal sample. The track breaks into some brilliant housey chords that fill the sound up with a lush vibe. The track goes full on when the bass kicks creating one awesome hypnotic house groove. One to watch here and one that will find its way into many boxes.

YUSUKE YAMAMOTO – YELLOW EDGE (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS) – VINYL RELEASE

 

[soundcloud id='11367498' format='set']

 

New Eyepatch Recordings from Yusuke Yamamoto is now available on vinyl!

 

 

“Yellow Edge” is a three track debut release on Eyepatch for Japanese DJ and house music producer Yusuke Yamamoto. He runs his own label Vacances Records and has seen releases on many other labels including Oasi Lab, Houseworx, City Life, Ibiza House Hotspot and more. His tracks are supported by a lot of big DJs including Luciano, Claude VonStroke, D’julz, Anthony Collins and Moodymanc to name a few. He brings a fresh approach to house and this is manifested within this superb pack and we love the sound so much we will also be releasing this onto good old 12″ vinyl which will be a welcome addition to any DJ’s box.

The title track kicks us off with a cool rhythmic vibe through a well crafted drum and percussion arrangement. The hats, combined with subtle bongos bring the track to life early on before a wonderfully deep bassline takes the centre stage. Deep rooted chord synths fade in taking the track well into the depths of house music. A classic styled simple vocal sample adds a big punch to this while higher pitched strings ease the track along.

“Noir” is up next and again we see an intro that gets right into a rhythmic flow from the off through a brilliant mixture of kicks and percussions. Deep synth chords soon follow and we are set on a head on collision with more quality deep house grooves. Yusuke uses vocals samples very well which adds a certain retro richness to the vibe. An infectious groove fit for any deep set.

“Olene” rounds up this release in style with a bit more pace in the groove. The arrangements on the drums and percussions are top class yet again and the deep bassline pulsates and throbs enough to the asses shakin’. Some brighter synth moments with a little bit of melody thrown in are coupled with stabs of brass instruments and strings. The vocal samples ooze class and sums up the track quite well overall.

Another top notch exclusive Eyepatch release which will be a must for those deeper sets.

VAN CZAR FEATURING PADHME – YOU & ME (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='112393896']

 

Residing in Madrid, Belgian producer Van is joined in the studio by a mystery guest, Padhme, for their track “You & Me” which comes backed up with a top notch remix. Van is very busy indeed as he churns out quality productions and performs in clubs around Madrid, he also now hosts Bonzai Basik Beats Spain which will soon be broadcasting on multiple radio stations. Padhme is the mysterious partner whom we hope to reveal more info on soon.

The original mix is a masterclass in deep vibes, the intro boasts a chunky kick with a wonderful melancholic synth chord. Crispy, sharp hats begin to appear and the groove is locked on for the duration. The break takes on a surreal vibe as a sensuous vocal meanders through the sound, this creates a quite intense feeling which works superbly well on the track, great stuff.

Polish DJ and producer Marcin Czubala steps up to remix duties with a powerful rework. Marcin has a very impressive back catalogue having appeared on labels like Mobilee Records, Your Mamas Friend, 8 Bit and Recovery Tech just to name a few. He has played in over 300 classical music concerts in the early to mid nineties and it’s this background in music that has put him right at the heart of the electronic sound. His remix kicks off with a classic bassdrum and hat, clap combination which creates a nice steady rhythm, the bass adds a techno twist with sublime pads sweeping through. The vocal sample works well with the sound, but the big focus on this track comes from the stunning synth work, this gives a retro feeling while keeping the overall sound modern. This one is not to be missed!

JOHNNY DEEP (AKA YONATHAN DAHAN) – PORTAL STEPS (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='109724622']

 

Israeli DJ and producer Johnny Deep aka Yonathan Dahan makes his full release debut with Bonzai on the ever popular Eyepatch imprint with his own brand of delectable deep tech. Johnny got a taste for electronica after listening to top jocks in the 90’s, he spent three years in and around Detroit as well as other parts of the US and Canada. He gained a mountain of music experience which he took back to Israel where performs at all the big parties and does his part to keep the underground scene alive.

“Portal Steps” intros with a deep throbbing bass alongside cool vocal samples and percussion arrangements. The beats kick in throwing us into a full on deep and techy house jam with some very groovy synth stabs bursting with house flavours. Throughout the track the vocal samples come through very well and the funk levels keep on rising, one to watch and sure to be on many floors upon release.

“Soulvation” is Johnny’s next track and comes in the form of his Deeper Dub. A much deeper vibe is evident with a slower tempo driving the grooves. Very well crafted percussions and FX work tie the track up beautifully while a super smooth deep, infectious baseline brings up the rear. On the break classy synths do their work and force you to shake that ass, great stuff.

[soundcloud id='108647054']

 

Onofrio Conte serves up another tasty treat with his two track “Endless Love EP”. Onofrio has had much success with his last few outings on Bonzai Basiks and Sounds R Us and here he continues to deliver the goods in style.

The title track is a wonderful journey through deep house, chunky kicks accompanied by tight percussions provide a solid grooving track. The deep bassline fills the sound brilliantly with its lush and warm vibe creating a flowing rhythm. Simple chords have a huge impact here while some percussion instruments take centre stage. Superb stuff yet again!

“Sunday Morning” gets tougher with a dirty, deep house vibe. Tough beats combine well with expertly crafted synths and a smooth deep bassline. Vocal samples are a great addition here and blend in nicely with this stunning deep cut. Onofrio shows his quality once again and you can be sure to spot this track on many playlists.

SOLARTOFF – THEY LOVE ME (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='106332036']

 

The ever impressive Solartoff marks his full Eyepatch debut with a super smooth round of deep goodness. Solartoff has been responsible for some top notch remixes in the past and today we see his track “They Love Me” get an outing and is backed up with two stunning remixes.

The original Mix kicks off in smooth style with a nice chunky kick backed up with cool percussions. The bassline comes through with a deep lush vibe and some classy house chords ramp up the groove. The vocal sample fits perfectly and on the break we get treated to an amazing round of expert synth work.

Harmon & Landowski are next up with their Rework. The track intros with a tougher edge as the heavy kicks, percussions and amazing bassline carve out a solid flowing groove. The vocal is used sparingly and adds a cool layer to the sound. Superb synth work gives this track a bouncier feel which will do well on floors all over.

Van Czar closes the release with his Club Mix. Van is truly one of the hardest working artists around, he continues to DJ frequently around Madrid and his Bonzai Basik Beats Spain radioshow is gaining popularity all over, this is all topped off with dedicated studio work where he continues to churn out the quality. His mix is a super charged club orientated groove, the kicks have an understated thump which would be so powerful on a great system. The percussion arrangement as usual is top notch and the synth manipulation creates a cool flowing rhythm. Top stuff which will feature on many sets for sure.

DAROUGE – DISPLACEMENT EP (EYEPATCH RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id='105213304']

 

Darouge is back after his “Ohwha EP” on Basiks with his three tracker, “Displacement EP”. Deep house grooves at their finest here which is a testament to this guys hard work and dedication.

The title track sets us off into the realms of deep, lush vibes courtesy of an outstanding bass that throbs out a hypnotic rhythm. Nice and tight arrangement with an almost bouncy feel as the crisp hats do their work. Soft piano chords sit back as distant sounding strings begin to rise. A cool vocal sample makes an appearance and rounds off an awesome cut.

“These Days” goes deeper still, heavily FX’ed vocal samples dominate the intro as the kicks and percs gather steam. A real low end sliding bass lurks in the depths and on the first drop a huge synth takes over setting the scene for a monster ride through the deeper side of house music. The main break offers up some quality synth work and expert manipulation of sounds, top notch.

“Laced” delivers a much more minimal vibe with the focus on huge kicks and subtle percussions. Again we see Darouge apply his expertise into a sublime bass track with very soft deep house chords bringing up the rear. As the track progresses many more elements begin to show with some classy sax and organ sounds, superb stuff yet again!
