AUDIO NOIR – NOW & ZEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

One of Bonzai’s most prolific artists delivers his stunning studio album, Now & Zen, filled to the brim of top quality original works and remixes. Audio Noir has certainly made Bonzai Progressive his home over the last number of years. He has racked up a hugely impressive back catalogue which covers many forms of music styles. His diversity has driven him to be able to complete this album. He draws on some of his past remixes and transforms them into his own Zen style, and he looks to the future with outstanding original works. This album will take you on a journey through beautifully constructed soundscapes that will allow you to detach from reality and create a sense of enlightenment. A much anticipated collection of works from an outstanding talent, definitely not to be missed.

The structure of the album brings out a beautifully crafted narrative that lulls us into its blissful realms. 17 tracks are huddled together with each bringing their own Zen like state. Audio Noir has selected some of the finest progressive tracks to be converted into this Zen structure. Tracks from Dark Soul Project & Mathov, Phi Phi, Airwave, DJ Fire, Samotarev featuring Max Magnum, Matan Caspi, Rise and Fall, Alexey Lisin & Ange and Cordoba are transformed into totally immersive and mesmerizing constructs that allow us to dig deep into our imagination. The attention to detail is sublime and ranges from subtle melodic phrases to full on intense, climactic soundscapes.

A large portion of the album is made up of Audio Noir’s original works, and he enlists the help of two outstanding vocalists to really get the goosebumps on the rise. Natalie Major is brought in for vocal duty on the wonderful Story Of Our Lives, a truly captivating track that intros with a very soft and deep bass tone. The vocals come through early on and straight away you get hooked on to the attractive sounds. In the background, rich cascading strings offer the perfect balance of both high and low frequencies. Quite simply a beautiful track.

Australian Epic delivers an abstract look into music with a mixture of contrasting sounds that converge in perfect harmony. From glitchy to warm rising pads and deep basses, the track builds beautifully into a raw almost urbanised sound complete with a tough edged drum section. Definitely something for the late night sessions.

Love intros with a tribalistic drum arrangement before cool plonky piano notes come through. A softer side develops with the introduction of beautiful strings that sweep through the sound. A deep bass walks through the groove as sensual vocals are unleashed. A deeply though provoking track, brilliant.

The Hawthorne Effect delves deep with a superb hypnotic trait that reaches out the deeper recesses of the mind. A melancholic sound prevails as wonderful sounds converge to the backdrop of a fantastic drum sequence. In contrast, a melodic piano phrase plays the track out and leaves you wanting much more.

Lena Grig joins Audio Noir on Like The Wind which intros with a cool bass pulse that leads up to a superb percussions arrangement filled with crisp hats and claps. A big 80’s synth sound peeks out and the strong vocal from Lena combines perfectly. A much deeper vibe takes over for the duration as the lower end is given free reign on this expertly crafted number.

Furō intros with cool percussions amid a plethora of superb FX that sweep through the track and lead us up to a fantastic synth riff. We are teased with the notion of a pounding kick drum as mini risers takes us through each section of the track. A world of melody is unleashed as the myriad of sound blends perfectly to the pulsing bass that dominates. A wonderful track full of anticipation and energy that will definitely grab your attention.

Navagio Beach rounds up the album and does it in style. The track bursts into life with a crash that fades out to reveal the most beautiful melodic piano sequence alongside soft gated synths, sweeping pads and the mesmerizing action of the sea. Quite simply, stunning.

MATAN CASPI – CHECK THE WINDOWS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bonzai Progressive stalwart Matan Caspi returns with the impressive Check The Windows. Fresh from his last outing, Serenity, Matan relishes in unleashing his smooth progressive sounds on our senses. This new cut comes complete with two top class remixes from Manu Riga & Matt Holliday and East Cafe.

The Original Mix sets off with a progressive flavour as pounding kicks are joined by sharp, slicing hats and a rich voice that glides through. A deep, driving bass takes over and becomes the backbone of the groove throughout. Cool stabs litter the sound taking the track deeper into the progressive world. The break throws up a sublime sequence filled with beautiful melodic undertones while a riser takes us to a fantastic climax and then right back into the main groove. A monster tune that you will not want to miss.

The formidable duo, Manu Riga and Matt Holliday are back on remix duty with their TribeHard Remix and yet again they outdo themselves with their blend of progressive styles. As ever Manu remains a constant presence here at Bonzai Progressive, he is fresh from his latest production, along with Fe Malefiz and their track Forgotten as well as a remix over at Green Martian on SeamLess Beat & Franz Lehmann’s Toward Peace. He recently took the decks after a short hiatus and performed sets for TM Radio (Deep House) and Ethnoscience (with Matt) on Progressive Beats. Matt Holliday also remains a constant deliverer of only the finest grooves in both producing and DJing. His last outing with Manu, Submerged Needs, is still a go to track for many top jocks including Solarstone as well as his remix on Facade’s Dystopia on JOOF Recordings. Currently the guys are back in the studio working on more material which we are already excited about, stay tuned for more. As the title of the remix suggests we are in for an epic ride filled with tight beats and solid grooves. The intro boasts a nice punchy kick as sharp stabby synths come through, while the tribal elements of the track start to build. A deep, probing bassline soon commands the track as we settle in for the duration. On the break we get treated to a masterful display of layered pads and strings alongside a strong voice before getting right back into the main groove. Definitely a must have track that will keep the floors jammin.

East Cafe aka Gabor Kaszas returns to Bonzai with his superb remix. We last saw Gabor on remix duty for Audio Noir’s Midnight Til Morning, which was a part of the Almost Famous Reworked Volume 2 collection. Since then he has released on various labels and continues to deliver his intelligent progressive style. Here he cuts no corners on the quality front as he takes us deep into the progressive world. Right from the off we get locked on with an array of solid beats and wonderfully arranged synths that just seem to flow effortlessly through the sound. The bassline bubbles along and really drives the track beautifully. The break throws up rich, sweeping strings that give way to that brilliant bassline that just mesmerizes throughout. A top notch effort that will not disappoint.
