Napalm aka Hungarian producer Nanai PalIt and D-Phrag aka Bulgarian DJ Ivan Filipov return to Bonzai Progressive with their latest offering ‘Tour De Force’ and comes backed up with two top notch remixes. The guys’ last outing was ‘Boiling Point’ which was very well received from all quarters.
The Original Mix intros strongly with nice chunky kicks and a soft hat combination. Deep droning basses rise from below giving an air of intensity to the sound which is further enhanced by fading synths and brilliant ethnically charged instruments. Dark grooves are formed from these sounds and culminate in serious progressive workout which is perfect fodder for those darker edged sets, brilliant!
The long serving Bonzai family member Manu Riga is up on remix duty with a wonderfully constructed cut. Manu remains a busy guy in the studio with lots of work on the go including his own material as well as a raft of future remixes which we are excited to see. Here he takes the track on its journey through the darker recesses of progressive house. Powerful basses attract a lot of attention here and are given stark contrasts with lush pads that linger far behind. A very cool ethnic vibe rings through the sound and is further enhanced by a superb vocal sample which is the perfect addition to the sound. Big strong grooves from Manu yet again and a must for any box.
The very popular Yuriy From Russia is next on the remix. Yuriy has been churning out top quality vibes for quite a while now and always adds his unique progressive twist to everything he touches. The remix intros with nice phat kicks which sets the scene for a deep, dark ride through the prog house spectrum. Lush pads are on offer and add a certain depth to the sound which works in harmony with the resonating bass. The break settles into a very smooth sequence before a rising effect takes us back to the full on prog grooves, stunning stuff from Yuriy and not to be missed.
Napalm aka Hungarian producer Nanai PalIt and d-phrag aka Bulgarian DJ Ivan Filipov debut on Bonzai Progressive with this two tracker “Boiling Point” which is backed up with a top notch remix. The guys first got together in 2012 and have been creating some outstanding works since then with releases through Balkan Connection, Balkan Connection Tech and OLD SQL Recordings. A very talented duo with a lot to offer, these guys will for sure be ones to watch in the future.
The Original Mix of “Boiling Point” intros with classic hat and clap structure before rising up to a raw sounding synth line, the background effects create a gritty texture to the sound. When the bass drops the track gets into full on progressive flow and its depth will draw you in ever closer. Big sweeping synths are a big focus point with very subtle melodies lurking in the background, superb stuff.
Greek producer Simos Tagias steps up to remix “Boiling Point”. Simos has seen his music appear on Lynx Records, Modu Records and Baroque Records. His album “Shadows From The Past” along with his other releases have gained support from top jocks all over. The remix takes us deep into the progressive vibe with huge soundscapes filled with lush pads and swirling FX. A strong and steady groove with massive appeal that will be a feature among many playlists for sure.
The Redub of the original is a very powerful progressive track which will sit well in any set and will for sure be a firm favourite.
Finally we have “Summanus” which is another fine example of the deeper side of progressive. Very subtle intro builds up to a pulsating bassline with some quality synth work bringing up the rear. Big pads are matched perfectly with expertly crafted FX. The intensity continues to build after the break as the groove drives on through, top stuff.
