RECENT POSTS: Mr. Dello
It’s been a while since we last saw Mr. Dello, almost 2 years in fact, back in 2012 with Woadi Moan. On his return he is joined by Progrez debutant Elchinsoul on the fantastic deep fuelled three tracker Cloroquine EP.
Cloroquine intros with a superb punchy kick causes a shudder through the speakers. Cool metallic FX fade through and lead up to a monster bass that reverberates right through the sound beautifully. Bright open hats join in and the rhythm picks up the pace as that bass dominates. Minimalist synths cascade up and down on the break to the backdrop of some very cool sounds and effects giving a raw, earthy sound. Top notch deep grooves for the late night parties.
Home intros with an in your face kick and bass combi as tight drum patterns come through. Solid rhythms are formed out of the vast array of drums on offer and are joined by crispy hats and expertly crafted FX. The track powers on with that huge bass commanding authority over the groove. On the break we are treated to a cool display of drums before we get slammed right back into the main sound for the duration. A powerful, driving slice of tribal grooves to get the floors rocking.
Chocolate Rainbow sets off with some very cool, well rounded kicks and a shuffling rhythmic hi-hat pattern. Soft synth notes sit on top of a deep droning sub bass as various sounds and shapes build all around. The main bass groove dominates as it throbs into existence and really sets the deep vibe alive. Subtle melodic arps take us to the break and lead us into a surreal world filled with cool FX and those shuffling hats. The beat kicks back in and we get locked into the solid deep progressive house groove. Definitely a track that will turn a few heads, one to watch.

Debut artist on Bonzai Basiks Mr. Dello impresses with an electro tech joint backed with quality remixes on “Woadi Moan”.
Dello has been influenced by the synth era of the eighties while listening to the likes of Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Yello, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, Giorgio Moroder and Pet Shop Boys. After hearing Danny Tenaglia in an Athens nightclub he was hooked into electronic music and started to collect vinyls and get involved in piano lessons. Many study years passed and he ended up working as a sound engineer on concerts all over the world. He is now enjoying a successful DJ career around Greece and continuing to produce quality sounds.
“Woadi Moan” intros with a classic electro kick and builds with lots of bongo percussion and a bouncy bass, lots of brass stabs and a short spoken vocal fill up the sound. On the break a simple melody comes and that brass stab dominates, cool FX add an extra layer, solid rhythm!
On the remix we have Greek artist Sa.Du tweaking the controls to display a mighty tech house vibe. Upbeat sound with lots of Latin inspired percs, awesome deep bassline and sharp, crisp hats, very nice arrangement from a fast growing big name at Bonzai Basiks.
Next up is Dutch producer The French Connection with a quite funky little tech house slice, nice intro with a lot of drums and percs mashed together, the tune then kicks into a cool groove with spoken vocal throughout. Throbbing bass and some really cool sweep FX, on the break things start to funk up with an awesome organ sound.
