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.

Metronomes are back at Progrez with their fantastic three tracker entitled Madam Butterfly. The guys have been busy since their last offering with a spot on Bonzai Basik Beats and a superb remix on Steve Sai’s Stardust. Here they dig out their best progressive skills once again for a brilliant ride on the progressive highway.

First up we have Madam Butterfly which sets us off with a pulsing bass alongside cool percussive elements before a punchy kick comes slamming in to get the groove into full swing. The bass delivers a deep grooving vibe and is contrasted beautifully with sweet piano licks. The break offers a little respite before the track really gets going on its sublime journey. Various basses combine perfectly and are joined by some mesmerizing synths throughout. Expertly arranged and in your face progressive house that will be a feature on many sets for sure, not to be missed.

Fantasma intros with a droning bass sound alongside crispy hats and is soon joined by a nice and punchy kick. A sub bass begins to bubble up from to the backdrop of some quality FX work which provides lots of beautiful textures. A dark atmosphere is formed as the layers build resulting in a deep progressively charged groove that will work brilliantly in the darker rooms no doubt.

Dead Tourist begins life with a series of sinister sounding FX and cool percussions. Deep resonating basses add the perfect platform for the track to evolve as they transform into a rolling line injecting energy. Very cool scattered synths provide smooth textures and on the break these become more prominent. The main break is a masterclass in bass structure as various levels of low end drones and pulses merge into a superb sequence. Brilliant stuff from the guys and most definitely not to be missed.

Stardust is the newest single from Steve Sai. We last saw Steve with his hugely impressive White Fluffy Clouds back at the end of 2013 and then shortly after with his remix on Crocy’s – Cry. Stardust comes with the Original plus four top quality remixes from some of the hottest artists on the Bonzai books.

The Original Mix oozes deep progressive grooves right from the off as cool punchy kicks are set against a brilliant pulsating bassline. Perfectly placed sub bass shots enhance the sound beautifully with various other synths layered on top resulting in a pumping groove. Steady flowing rhythms are formed out of tight drum and percussion patterns that give the track that driving surge. The break reveals some cool distant arps alongside dark edged pads. The big hitter comes in the shape of melancholic pianos that keep the track well within its progressive sphere. Superb stuff yet again from Steve, not to be missed.

Fresh off the back of his last release Big and Small EP, Belgian DJ and producer Ben Solar is up first to remix duty. The intro boasts nice chunky kicks that are soon joined by crispy sharp hats and cool synth shots. A deep rolling bassline bubbles up from below and takes us by surprise as the full power of its thump is unleashed. Layers build smoothly with the addition of metallic sounding FX that adds stark contrast to the deeper edge of the sound. Strong and driving track that will be a big player in any of the deeper sets.

DJing and production duo Jon ManimaL & Magros aka metrONomes take a break from sister label Progrez and deliver a stripped down smooth ride through deep progressive sounds with their superb Hypnotic Remix. The percussive led intro sets the scene perfectly as flat kicks are joined by various percussions and atmospheric FX. The kicks develop a punch and the groove gets into full swing as the bassline begins to form up into a real groovy mover. A dark and long drawn out bass drone hypnotises alongside those stark piano riffs that give a surreal melancholic feel to the sound. Brilliant stuff from the guys, top notch.

Athens based DJ and producer John Tsamis is welcomed at Bonzai with his brilliant remix. John began DJing in Athens at small parties with his friends which led to playing bigger events with top names. In 2005 he got his own residency at Stereo before moving on to the bigger Luv Club. 2014 saw his first releases on Baboon Recordings with much more to come. The track intros with sharp hats and a long released kick that has a smooth bass edge. Percussions build nicely and provide a solid rhythm for the track to progress. Quirky vocal one shots peek through on the first break as a riser brings with it a thumping kick and a super low end bass that reverberates through the sound wonderfully. The main break unleashes a melancholic piano riff that adds a cool twist and so much character to the track. Great stuff.

Big and brash synths with a powerful bass driven groove is what the Alex Sense remix is all about. Alex is a newcomer to the Bonzai stable and no doubt this remix will make a huge impression. Based in Athens, Alex began to DJ around 1990 after he was introduced to a bit of Psy Trance. Soon after, in 2000 he set up 6thSense LTD and started to manage, produce and promote events among other things. Since 2009 he has seen releases on Movement Recordings, Micro Digital Records and Audiophile Live. The remix intros with a nice chunky kick with minimal percussions coming through. The percussions build smoothly and soon they are joined by a super punchy bass that will have any floor on the move. Big synths sweep by and give the track a purely deep streak which is further enhanced with top quality FX. The break plays on the melancholy of the original beautifully as deep piano chords are contrasted with bright arps. Strong and driving grooves for the darker rooms that will go down a storm.
