Matan Caspi delivers his stunning ‘Just Let Go’ which is backed up with three superb remixes from Audio Noir, Mindgamers and deepAlexander. Matin’s last outing was at the start of 2014 with the wonderful ‘I Wanna’ which saw a lot of support from all over.
First up we have the Original Mix which intros with super crispy hats that gets right up in your face as a nice chunky kick leads into a deep lush bass that comes through to balance things out beautifully. Cool vocal samples dash in and out of the sound adding a nice flow to the vibe. On the break a smooth synth arrangement takes over adding a hint of melody that gives off a contrasting groove, top notch from Matin yet again.
Tallinn based DJing and production duo Mindgamers are first up on remix duty. The guys have been enjoying a lot of attention for their works as their own productions as well as remixes are being picked up all over the world and featuring heavily in many sets and radioshows. Here the guys do what they do best, rock the joint! Right from the off the grooves are infectious, thumpy kicks and a sharp hi hat sequence are the perfect combination. The vocal samples off the original are used well and that bass just teases and teases. Stabby synths bring in a cool vibe and on the break we see these take full control before slamming right back into the main track to continue on this epic progressive house ride!
Audio Noir is up next and yet again he does not disappoint. His remix, Another Audio Noir Trip, is quite simply stunning. He has a way of taking a track and transforming it into something fresh and different while keeping true to the original. Nice whispered vocal on the intro which leads into a cool kick and a sublime percussion arrangement with some fantastic vocal samples over the top. The groove builds and builds before exploding into an analog fuelled, bass driven monster. Quite an energetic vibe off this as the layers build around the track culminating with a superb vibrant synth. Brilliant stuff out of Australia and not to be missed!
deepAlexander aka Sasa Skrobar rounds up the remixes with his stunning take. Sasa’s last release ‘Midnight Launch’ was well received and is a testament to the skills on offer. Big chunky kicks get us going with expertly tweaked vocal samples and fading synths sitting in the background. A cool rhythmic groove is built with the introduction of some great percussion patterns. The track takes a funky turn as a deep throbbing bass is brought forward together with a catchy, soulful vocal. The track is totally driven by that classy bass which has so much character as it binds the track together beautifully. Top stuff and a track you will want in your collection!

The ever popular Matan Caspi serves us up another tasty progressive treat in the shape of his latest works ‘I Wanna’. His last outing ‘Muddy Waters’ gained much support and is testament to the talent on offer from this guy. This release comes with two top notch remixes from top notch producers.
The Original Mix sets off with a percussion led intro with a snippet of funky keys peeking through. The kicks fill out the track nicely and a deep resonating bass gets the groove flowing. Nice and steady house vibes with a cool vocal coming in adding to the funky nature within the sound. The break reveals much more on the vocal front with the funk levels rising ten-fold through some very cool keys and pads, superb stuff from Matan and not to be missed!
Slovenian DJ and producer Matevz Crocy aka Crocy knows no bounds when it come to top quality productions and remixes as he always delivers the goods, and then some. His last release ‘Rotten Hour’ is currently doing the rounds and getting much attention. On the remix here Crocy beefs up the sound with chunky kicks and a wonderful deep infectious bass that forces those hips to sway. Super tight percussions provide a solid rhythm as the occasional synth makes an appearance. Aside from that bass the next big focus here is the use of the vocals, they are used perfectly and really set the track off brilliantly, cracking stuff and a must for those groovy late night parties.
Next up we have Daddy aka Koen Mertens on the remix. Koen has blasted out some great work in his time, but recently he has ramped things up a gear. In the last few months he has knocked out some fine original work alongside top quality remixes. Most notably his tracks ‘Hidden Mojo’ and ‘Accelerator’ saw big support across the board and we hope there is more to come from this guy. The remix intros with a cool kick and hat combo, a vocal sample fades through before a the bass ploughs in. The bass is a big focus here as more vocals play along into the groove. Some awesome acid type sequences show up on the break giving a new dimension to the track. Superb stuff from Koen!!

A regular feature within the Bonzai realm makes a welcome return, Matan Caspi delivers us his latest cut entitled “Muddy Dreams” which comes backed up with two brilliant remixes from two very talented youngsters.
The Original Mix is pure progressive house utopia with a super tight upbeat arrangement, Matan really goes to town with this one, it is a real treat to listen to as the drums weave out a flowing rhythm against some superb synth work and groovy basses. The big feature on the track are the outstanding vocal samples which really tie the whole thing up beautifully. A must for any house jock!
The awesome talent of Anthony Yarranton is shown once again with his remix. Aside from his own “Cotton Candy EP” back in June this year, he had also featured as a remixer on Quadran’s “Rumour” which has seen fantastic reviews from all quarters. In this remix the groove is smooth as the track builds nicely with cool kicks, soft hats and a subtle pad. The break delivers some well crafted synths before a vocal sample takes us back into the main track, great stuff.
Fresh off the back of his “Miracle EP”, Jakhira is back with more stunning prog vibes. A rhythmic intro full of many percussive elements get us moving with a well toned kick following suit. Cool, funky riffs fill the sound as the groovy bass eases through. Great use of vocals here as the track gets into full on club mode making this one to watch on the floors. The break boasts a wonderful array of lush pads before heading straight back into the main track, excellent stuff.
