With a distinct progressive sound these guys have matched up well and no doubt will turn a few heads with this, their first collab.

The Original Mix intros with a surreal other worldly sound that delivers a haunting vibe. Chunky kicks and tight percussions provide a solid rhythm that glides effortlessly along as a deep droning bass cuts its way through the track. Those surreal, plinky pianos and bright blips mesmerize in the strangest way as we are led into a veritable rabbit hole of progressive grooves. A wonderfully constructed slice of prog that will intrigue with its colourful textures you will not want to miss.

Up on remix duty we have Manu Riga with his Harmonies Remix. Manu aka Belgian musician, composer, producer and DJ, Adriaan Baussens is no stranger to these shores with his exhaustive back catalogue of works on Bonzai Progressive. Last time around we saw his growing collab with Matt Holliday gather pace with their second release Submerged Needs which continues to gain support across the board. Lots more coming up from this guy including, a new collab, more radioshows and DJing, so stay tuned for more. On the remix we are treated to a Manu Riga special with lots of tight drums and perfectly placed percussions. A deep droning, pulsing bass fills the track beautifully alongside the melodic synths that drive the groove. Rich voices crop up throughout as the track progresses and add a wonderful character to the sound. Such a brilliantly worked slice of prog here that will definitely not disappoint.

ALTEK – CONTROL EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Altek debuts on Green Martian with the tantalising Control EP. Hailing from El Paso, Altek has been influenced by lots of different genres which have shaped his sound today. In mid-2000’s he became more involved with electronic music, particularly deep house, progressive house, minimal, techno, and trance. He started DJing in 2006 and was mainly focused on trance but changed direction as he looked more into progressive sounds. Now residing in Austin, TX and thanks to the help from RealMusic Events, Electric Avenue ATX †and Hypersonic Radio, today Altek can showcase his record box at local clubs (Kingdom and Lania) which contain sounds from Cid Inc, Stas Drive, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Guy J, Guy Barone, †Mike Griego, Marcelo Vasami, Andrea Cassino, Anthony Mea, Addex and many more underground house hold names. He started producing back in 2007 when he took piano and music theory lessons which in essence have helped with his understanding of music.† After many years of learning and practicing, he got recognition for his remix on One of Use, One of Them by Lukajieff. Delighted to have him on board and we look forward to more.

First up we have the slinky progressive house grooves of Control. A tight punchy kick intros with cool atmospheric sounds coming through in the background. The track breaks early to reveal a fantastic dancing bassline that will definitely get the floors moving. The bassline melds into the groove as cool vocals blend in alongside subtle melodies. On the main break we get drawn into a superb melodic sequence filled with sweeping pads and lush synths. A real smooth slice of prog here that will not disappoint.

Coven intros with a cool melodic arp as deeper tones go off in the background. A nice and phat kick soon takes over and we begin our trek into a true progressive house groove. Smooth swelling pads rise up alongside a superb bass that meanders along in its slinky groove. Fresh sounding synths bring an air of brightness to the sound and on the break we get a taste of a very cool lead that ties the track together beautifully. Perfect fodder for an early morning session, not to be missed.

Rounding up this fine EP we have Bayside Drive with its classic intro filled with a surreal atmosphere that builds and builds with a blissful flavour. Cool synth arps deliver a subtle melody as the track evolves and takes us deeper into the groove. Sleek percussions dish out a solid flowing rhythmic vibe as we head into the break where we are drawn into the sound even more with a little help from a smooth melodic groove. A top class progressive house experience that will turn a few heads for sure.

WILD GUESS – TRYSAL 35 (GREEN MARTIAN)

Belgium based DJ’s J.E.O.F., Config and P.O.W. aka Wild Guess return to Green Martian with their latest creation, Trysal 35 which comes backed up with two superb remixes. The guys debuted last year with Nebulae which charted very well among many. After that they got a great response with their remix on Digital Department featuring Cara Leigh’s You Put A Spell and Mendexx’s Life Begins. So much more to come from this talented trio, well worth keeping tabs on for the future.

The Original Mix sets off with a nice punchy kick as a stabby synth fades in and soon dominates the sound. The track breaks to reveal a neatly woven melodic flavour and a superb deep droning bass that ebbs and flows with the help of some cool filtering. The synths soon take on their own melodies and captivate the mind as they wind their way through the groove. Snappy percussions come to the fore and contrast perfectly with the deeper elements and provide a steady rhythm in the process. On the break the sound intensifies with big synth pads that give a euphoric edge as the lead comes in while that droning bass keeps everything grounded beautifully. Top notch progressive house that will definitely be a peak time destroyer.

Yuriy From Russia has been a busy guy recently and he continues that trait with a fine remix here. At the start of 2015 he remixed Audio Noir’s Life to much praise. He also appeared on various compilations as well as multiple releases and remixes on various labels. Much more to come from this talented guy so stay tuned. On the remix he gives a nod to the original putting his own unique slant on the sound. A super solid groove is formed from the tight drums and attention to detail on the melodies. Rising arps and sweeping pads bring out a real nice melodic flow while a deep probing bass ensures the groove remains on point. Yuriy lays focus on the lead that etches itself into your brain with its smooth, tender vibes and catchy rhythm. A must have track in your box that will still be around for the Summer no doubt.

Jakhira is up next with his Guess Again Remix and yet again he delivers the goods in style. His last outing was back in August 2014 with a remix on Mindgamers’ You Know Why which was very well received indeed. Since then he has shown up on various compilations as well as appearances on Bonzai Basik Beats radio show. On the remix he delivers a truly epic slice of progressive goodness. The intro boasts Dave Clarke-esque chord stabs alongside a well rounded kick with tight drums and percussions that spew out a solid rhythm. A deep and probing bass keeps the groove on course as melodies start to form up. On the break those melodies come into full glory as the lead dominates the sound to the backdrop of a deep bass drone before we are led back into the main track. Top class stuff from Jack you will not want to miss.
