METRONOMES – AERIKO (PROGREZ)

Jon ManimaL & Magros aka MetrONomes continue their run of top quality cuts on Progrez with this superb three tracker entitled Aeriko. The guys have proved consistent with their brand of deep techno and progressive over the years. Their last outing here was back in October 2015 with Spectreman EP which gained great support from all over. Always great to see these guys deliver the goods and no doubt we’ll be seeing and hearing much more in the future.

Aeriko intros with a deep and powerful sub bass that resonates right through the track. Big chunky kicks soon follow and are joined by bright, crispy hats and shuffling percussions that blend beautifully to form a solid, tight drum arrangement. The bass continues to dominate and is joined by other gritty, pulsing basses giving the track wonderful textures. A simply superb slice with expertly crafted intricate patterns that will definitely keep the deeper, darker techno floors alight.

So Be sets out with a nice and deep vibe that dishes out a solid techno groove filled with swirling sounds and a dominating, sinister deep bass. Tight drums do the business with a nice chunky kick leading the way as sharp hats and various other percussions stamp out a strong rhythmic flow. Dark voices lurk in the lower end of the track and fit perfectly into the sound with a menacing tone. Top notch stuff from metrONomes that will be a welcome addition in any set.

iSCREAM intros with a monster kickdrum and an equally monstrous bass that will send shivers through your body. An air of intensity and anticipation slowly builds throughout the track keeping you locked on for the duration. More darker elements are exposed as the layers build before a fantastic spoken vocal comes though on the break. A tough and relentless slice of techno here and a definite must have track.

METRONOMES – SPECTERMAN EP (PROGREZ)

The dynamic duo return to Progrez with another of their deep techno offerings, this time around they give us the superb three track EP – Specterman. Jon ManimaL & Magros aka MetrONomes remain a constant force within our Progrez imprint and their last outing – Mistique set this in stone and gained fantastic support from across the board, their work also appears on many compilations, They consistently provide quality mixes for Bonzai Basik Beats on a regular basis as well as DJing at various venues. Always an exciting time when they drop new beats our way and we look forward to much more in the future.

Specterman gets right down to business with a solid, bassy groove that will give the subs work to do. A dark techno flavour emerges from this groove as strong punchy kicks lead the way with a rumbling bass in tow. Crispy hats slice through the low frequencies while surreal FX litter the background. An air of intensity creeps in taking the sound even deeper. A relentless monster that will tear up any floor no doubt.

Underwater takes us on an energetic ride through the techno sound as a solid rolling bassline powers the track with a tight drum arrangement providing the backup. Cool rhythmic shaking hats will keep the feet shuffling as we find ourselves totally locked on to the groove. Fantasy driven pads and strings lurk around creating a cosmic atmosphere that gets the imagination working. Excellent stuff yet again from these guys and a must have track in the box.

Zougla intros with a nice thumping kick drum alongside cool hats and percussions. A deep rumbling bass starts to fade in and pretty soon we find ourselves hooked into this techno monster. The techno grooves ooze out of the sound and get a boost by the upbeat structure of the drums. Strange, eerie FX go off throughout the sound add cool textures full of imagination. A super solid workout that offers little respite, this is a must have.

METRONOMES – MISTIQUE (PROGREZ)

The ever present force of metrONomes aka Jon ManimaL & Magros return to Progrez with another fine slice of deep, dark and techy prog on Mistique. The guys have made us wait five months since their last outing, Domin.US which gained a lot of attention on the scene. As always the excitement mounts each time they deliver the goods and this time around is no exception as they gear up for another head twisting cut.

Mistique intros with a smooth deep and grooving vibe as punchy kicks are joined by soft hats and a lush bass that envelops the sound beautifully. Tight percussions begin to form up and deliver a tasty tribal sequence that fits the sound perfectly. The bass is boss here as it meanders along bringing in that superb progressive groove. A short break unleashes a cosmic spacey vibe before we get thrust back into the main track for the duration, top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Philosopher sets out with a cool flowing vibe made up of sharp hats and chunky kicks with a fantastic rumbling bass bringing up the rear. The track takes on a sinister element with a little help from haunting wide eyed FX and cool robotic voices. A totally hypnotic experience that delivers a relentlessly deep solid groove and one that you will most definitely want in your collection.

Tarzan intros with cool tribal drums alongside a nice punchy kick and short sharp hats that provide a cool contrast to the low and high ends. A deep, throbbing bass rumbles up from below as the drums tighten up into a solid dance fuelled groove. Stunning, heavily effected voices come through as the tribal vibe ramps up a gear giving off that jungle feeling which befits the name of the track. A wonderfully surreal track that will both captivate and mesmerize, perfect fodder for those late night sessions.

METRONOMES – DOMIN.US (PROGREZ)

Deep progressive duo metrONomes return to Progrez with the superb three tracker Domin.US. Their last outing came in the form of the wonderful Madam Butterfly which gained lots of attention. You can also catch the guys in action on Bonzai Basik Beats radioshow where they showcase their brand of progressive vibes with tight mixes. Always a pleasure to see these talented artists and we are sure to see much more in the months ahead.

First up is the title track Domin.US with its percussion led intro filled with snappy snares and crispy hats. The brightness is broken by a monster kick and a pounding bass that beats at your chest mercilessly. The tight arrangement brings a deep rhythmic groove that would be at home in a darkened club with the amps all the way up. Quite a minimal approach with a few layers being added as the track progresses, this makes for a truly dark experience that will definitely blow your mind, not to be missed.

Pussy Hat intros with a winding bass that fades in and out to the backdrop of an eerie soundscape filled with multiple textures. Crispy sharp hats are met with a big chunky kick that dominates the sound beautifully. A deep rooted bass begins to find its way through as it rises up from the depths. The break reveals more of that huge soundscape before we are thrust back to the main groove and those solid beats. A monstrous sound that have any system quaking in its boots.

Narcosis rounds up this fine package with its deep progressive offering. Tight beats and sharp percussive elements are shored up by a pulsing bass that gets the head nodding. A great drum arrangement gets the rhythm flowing nicely as deep low end frequencies begin to rise up. Top quality FX litter the sound adding cool textures throughout. An intensity is generated with the introduction of cool synths that are perfectly filtered in and come to prominence on the break. Superb stuff yet again from the guys and a definite must have.
