ONOFRIO CONTE – RUMBLE (SOUNDS R US RECORDINGS)

After a superb remix on Van Czar’s Rumba, Onofrio is back at the SRUR helm with the brilliant Rumble which comes backed up with three quality remixes. Get ready for this unique, energetic style as Onofrio rustles up another slice of intense Techno for your listening pleasure.

The Original Mix gets us on the move with a pounding kick drum that will hit the mid rift hard with a little help from a super low end bass. Crispy, sharp hats cut through the low frequencies like a knife as an intensity builds in the background with a rising synth. Shuffling rhythms form up as the hats begin to stutter and drum patterns emerge. The bass moves into an offset position creating an energetic feel to the sound while on the break the synths get a look in as the groove flourishes. Top notch stuff yet again that you will definitely want to get into your sets.

The popular Ozan Kanik steps up to the remix desk for the first of three remixes. 2015 has kicked off very well for SRUR boss Oz Romita, and with tracks like this and Ozan’s own Back Ally Rally, in the frame it looks set to continue. The intro sets off with a somewhat intense vibe as nice punchy kicks are joined by sharp hats and a sinister sounding synth drone. Cool drum patterns litter the groove and keep the rhythm flowing while top quality FX take us through the composition effortlessly. The intense vibe continues to rise and is enhanced by the introduction of some hypnotic sounds that show up through the break. A super sleek, super solid slice of Techno that will keep the floors pumping no doubt.

Naples native Bulaklak aka Francesco Flores debuts on SRUR with his remix. Having grown up with music through playing instruments and listening, it was inevitable that he would end up making it his career. At 15 he discovered underground house music and he began to DJ. On the production front he has released across many labels and is known for his experimental style. The remix here feeds perfectly into that experimental style he loves, the intro boasts some cool pulsing basses, sinister synths and rising pads that give off a surreal vibe. Nice, big chunky kicks soon take charge with the bass settling in nicely at the low end to allow the vast array of sounds and strange shapes to form. As the layers build you find yourself locked into the sound with no escape. Bulaklak blends the minimal side of Techno with some powerful grooves to create a tight and solid Techno workout that will really get the heads nodding, a must have.

Moll returns to SRUR with a superb remix. We last saw him on remix duty for Oz Romita’s Idiots and before that on Bonzai Basiks with At The Dawn EP. Always great to see this guys work come through the office as we know we’re always in for a real treat. On the remix we get thrust into a sublime world filled with pounding kicks and rising FX and hypnotic rhythms. The intro gets right into it with powerful kicks coupled with sharp claps and super sharp hats. The bass rumbles along nicely on the bottom as the mid frequencies take control of the sound. The synths sit perfectly among the cacophony of percussions and echoed claps that give the track a real edgy feel. A truly intense Techno groove, only for the headstrong.

VAN CZAR – RUMBA EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

The ever impressive Van Czar gets his techno groove on at Bonzai Basiks once again with his Rumba EP complete with two brilliant remixes. A truly gifted artist, Van devotes his time to music in many ways. His very successful Bonzai Basik Beats Spain, which can be heard on multiple internet radio stations, will have passed its 65th episode by the time of this release. On top of that he is also releasing material as Cysxe as well as various collaborations. Just recently he got a vinyl release on our Bonzai Worx Volume 5 series with Love Trip featuring Sugar Love. Still a lot more to come from this guy, so stay tuned.

The Original Mix intros with a nice, big punchy kick with a healthy dosing of claps that really get the rhythm flowing. The Techno just oozes out of the sound with sharp synth stabs joining forces with cool vocals. The rhythms keep with the title of the track and bring out that rumba-esque groove which ties in perfectly given Van’s African roots and his current Spanish residence. A nice mixture of cultures that has been captured beautifully in this driving Techno sound. A definite must have you won’t want to miss.

Fran Navaez returns to Basiks with his remix and really darkens the tones beautifully. His last appearance was with the fantastic Feeling back at the start of 2014 as well as a guest spot on Bonzai Basik Betas. On the remix a monster kick drum resides over the proceedings as crispy hats break through. A deep bass rattles right through the sound as it lurks on the low end. Sweeping FX litter the groove and give way to the superb synth hits that pop up all around. A tight drum arrangement ensures a solid groove that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

Onofrio Conte joins in on the remix duties with his superb slice. Onofrio has cropped up across various labels under the Bonzai umbrella including Sounds R Us Recordings, Eyepatch Recordings and Bonzai Basiks. His works are well renowned for their energetic vibes and we are never disappointed. Great to see him return to these shores and hope for much more in the future. The remix intros with a subdued kick drum as a throbbing, deep bassline takes control. Bright, crispy hats cut through the low frequencies like a knife providing a great contrast to the sound. Shuffling percussions begin to form up alongside a cool stab as that bassline dishes out its driving force. The break throws up a surreal pad sequence before we get thrust right back into the main sound for the duration. Another gem from Onofrio that will no doubt feature heavily in many sets.

ONOFRIO CONTE – UNDERGROUND PEOPLE EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Onofrio is back to Basiks with his ‘Underground People EP’ which comes backed with two fantastic remixes. This guy goes round the houses as he has seen tracks appear on our Eyepatch and Sounds R Us labels. His last Basiks outing was way back in 2013 with ‘Red Lights EP’ and since then he has continued to deliver the goods.

The Original Mix intros with full on Techno flavours in mind. A deep rolling bass and punchy kick set the scene for a relentless ride. Percussions build their way in with crispy hats and some great snares and claps that set off a cool rhythm. The vocal sample is heavily effected with superb results and adds character to this minimal sound, particularly on the break. Cool bouncy rhythms that will have any floor moving in no time.

Van Czar is up next with his Ibiza Remix. Van continues to inspire as he pours his soul into each production and remix he does. His latest outing ‘Black Diamond’ on Bonzai Basiks is shaping up to be another of his master strokes. We know he travelled to Ibiza recently and no doubt he will have gotten the inspiration for this remix there. A percussive led intro takes us smoothly into a techno groove with nicely padded kicks and a pulsating bass. Rhythmic patterns evolve beautifully with the addition of subtle percs here and there. Sublime rising pads take the focus and blend well with the tech grooves before leading into the break where a faultless sequence takes place filled with powerful vox and swirling pads. The tracks kicks back in and we are locked on for the duration, another fine slice form Van the man!

Next up is Cysxe with his Dark Room Remix. Cysxe is the moniker of Van Czar and is an outlet for the tougher edged techno he likes to delve into. Cysxe has seen releases on labels like NXT Recordings, Eyepatch Recordings and more over the last year or so and first came to prominence with a remix of Van’s Bonzai debut ‘Bouge’. The remix intros with an energetic feel as phat kicks are paired with a chest pounding offset bass that really sets the track on fire. Cool background FX adds texture to the sound and a hypnotic single synth note really brings out the tougher edged techno vibe. A monster of a tune that gives off a retro feel and will no doubt be a popular choice among many!

VAN CZAR – BLACK DIAMOND EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Van Czar returns to Basiks with his wonderful ‘Black Diamond EP’ which comes with two fantastic remixes as well as the Original. Van’s last outing ‘African Roots’ saw him collaborate with a myriad of top artists which gained a lot of support from all quarters. As usual Van continues to keep the wheels turning with DJing, radio and producing taking a lot of his time. No doubt we will be seeing much more from this Spanish based Belgian.

First up we get into the Original Mix which intros with a superb jungle theme and a tense rising pad. Very cool percussions form up and create a tight rhythmic groove as chunky kicks come into play giving off a cool tribal vibe. The break offers up those surreal pads to the backdrop of jungle sounds which work so well together. Brilliant percussion led track that will be a welcome addition to those deeper techno sets.

Popular remixer Onofrio Conte steps up to the controls with a brilliant display of his skills. The intro gets us moving with beautifully released kicks and contrast well with sharp hats and a tight percussion arrangement. Lush deep chords play through the sound and build a tense picture as the track evolves. A truly infectious groove is the result and will sit well in any playlist, top notch stuff!

German DJ and producer Eric Kanzler delivers his Dirty Remix and injects his brand of techno in style. The intro sets us up for a brilliant display of percussions as many sounds converge and mould into a great big dirty ride through techno. Perfectly tuned beats and a very subtle and simple bass are the backbone to an array of drums that blend beautifully. Expertly crafted and a lot of fun, this is not to be missed.
