PETRI PETRO – STARBURST EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Over the last number of years Petri Petro has contributed some magical moments on Bonzai Basiks. His newest slice – Starburst EP – is no exception as he dishes out his own brand of infectious techno to the masses with a distinct space theme. Last time out we got a real treat with his Dragonfly EP back at the start of 2016, which gained great support, and we’ve no doubt that this new cut will follow suit.

Starburst opens with a monster kick drum made up of a punchy hit with a superb bass latched onto the end. Bright hats form up and create a flowing rhythm to the deep vibe as a hypnotic synth note comes through to bring the groove right back to its rawest form. A perfectly balance techno track that is simplistic in nature but full to the brim with spice and gusto. If you’re after a peak time track that will not only blow the roof off your venue but also set the floor on fire, then this is a must have track for any set.

Quasar intros with a beautifully tweaked kick drum, a crispy hat and a powerfully deep throbbing offset bass that fills the low end brilliantly. The hats are joined by stuttering percussions that join in on the tight drum arrangement to get the rhythm flowing. A superb rattling synth fades up and draws us into its hypnotic spell as the track intensifies. A monster track for sure and one that will be a most welcome addition in your box for those late night sorties.

Red Moon sets off with a pounding kick drum and a slicing hi hat that cuts through the intense offset bass. The bass drives the groove forward as the drums layer up to form a solid rhythm that will get the feet shuffling towards the floor. An array of percussions come together and work in tandem with an ever changing synth that delivers a raw element to the sound. Top notch stuff that delivers a relentless techno groove, not to be missed.

PETRI PETRO – DRAGON FLY (BONZAI BASIKS)

Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro marks his seventh appearance on Bonzai Basiks with the superb four tracker, Dragon Fly. Over the last few years we have seen some top notch cuts from this guy and we’re sure he’ll continue to ply us with his own unique brand of Techno, we look forward to much more from Petro in the future.

The title track, Dragon Fly, gets us on the move with a pacey drum arrangement complete with punchy kicks and crispy hats. Lots of noise is generated and we find ourselves totally hooked early on. A fantastic offset bassline is the driving force here and is backed up with those tight drums and a rattling sound that oozes a pure techno vibe. Simple and highly effective, this one is not to be missed.

Manual Search sets off with a thumping kick drum and metallic sounding hat that drips with techno flavours. A subtle bass sits on top of the kicks and lays the foundation for some top notch grooves to come. A tough approach is taken here as the focus is drawn towards the drums that are delivering a solid workout. Cool FX are spread over the hats and percussions as a surreal alarm is let loose in the background. One for the edgier sets here, top notch stuff.

Escaping gets down and dirty right from the get go as tough kicks are met by gritty sounds that dig deep into your brain. A superb shuffling rhythm section gets the techno groove onto the floors amid a storm of wailing sounds that send the track into overdrive. A short break offers little respite here as we are soon thrust back into full on mode for the duration. An excellent slice of techno that will be a welcome addition in any late night set.

Clock Work intros with a tough pounding kick drum and a slicing sharp hat while cool noises fade up into the sound. As the track powers on we are treated to an array of cool sounds and as the title suggests, everything runs like clockwork. This one is a masterclass in the art of techno construction, a tight drum arrangement that will get any floor pumping coupled with a mesmerizing display of percussion patterns, what more could any techno purist ask for? Top notch stuff.

PETRI PETRO – BEAM OF LIGHT EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Belgian DJ and producer Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro returns to Basiks with the superb four tracker Beam Of Light EP. It was back in April 2015 that we last got a glimpse of this guy’s talents when he delivered his Deflector EP, which saw great support on the techno and tech house floors. This one marks his 4th Bonzai release and we look forward to many more.

Beam Of Light intros with a solid kick and bass combi that gets right down to a pacey Techno groove. Cool percussions slice through the low end frequencies like a knife as crispy hats and sharp snares do their thing. The drum arrangement is top notch and provides a steady flowing rhythm that will definitely have those dancing feet on the floors. Expertly crafted noise FX and a mesmerising synth light the track on fire as that strong offset bass keeps the techno groove moving. Brilliant stuff here that will be a big hitter on the techno floors for sure.

Elliptical intros with a tough edged kick drum that pounds out a solid punch and is joined by subtle hats and cool noise FX that fade in nicely. An underlying bass accompanies those kicks perfectly and the two become one with ease delivering that solid punch with some oomph behind it. Shuffling hat patterns appear and the rhythm gets flowing beautifully as we are taken deeper into the techno sound. A pure in your face techno monster here and a definite must have track no doubt.

Polygone sets off with an effortless kick and bass combi and the two complement each other perfectly, the kicks have a nice thump with clicked top end while that bass resides much lower in the depths and provides the warmth. Cool drums start to form up into intricate patterns as shuffling hats come through to keep the rhythm tight. Intense synths rise up in the background and deliver a tension to the sound that builds and builds before dissipating and taking right back into the main groove. A definite big hitter here that will be at home in any of the tougher techno sets.

Nebulosity rounds off this superb pack and takes us on a surreal trek into the deeper side of techno. Right from the off we are locked into this solid techno workout with thumping kicks and cool sharp claps and an on beat bas that hypnotises the mind. A fantastic round of tight percussion patterns gives the track a nice bounce ass mesmerising synths lurk in the background. Another fine slice of pure techno that is most definitely not to be missed.

PETRI PETRO – CONNECTICS EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Belgian DJ and producer Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro makes a welcome return to Basiks with his four tracker, Connectics EP. It was back in April 2014 since we last got a taste of his brand of deep Tech and Techno on his Side Effects EP. Great to see him back and no doubt we will be seeing more in the future.

We kick off with Connectics which hooks you in with fantastic bass heavy kicks and pulsing offset bass that form a truly dark Techno vibe. A simple synth note fades in with an echoed aftertaste and dominates with its hypnotic groove. Subtle arps litter the groove also and really enhance the textures of the sound. On the break percussions take over before we get slammed right back into the mix for the duration. The perfect addition to those banging sets you will not want to miss.

Outline intros with a big chunky kick that will hit you right in the chest with its pounding groove. Crispy hats fade in alongside a wall of noise that will eat right into your brain. Intensity rises and falls throughout as the layers build on this stomper while gritty synths fill the space and give a real Techno flavour to the sound. This hard hitting super tight track has a sinister nature that will not let go, top notch stuff.

Next up is Syndrome which intros with warm punchy kicks and a mixture of shuffling hats and harsh percussions. Eerie synths captivate as they weave through the groove with expertly tweaked precision. The offset bass takes a backseat and allows the mids and highs to shine and reach ear shattering levels. A truly relentless and merciless groove that will keep floors rocking no doubt.

Fugitive rounds up this fantastic package and keeps the Techno vibe alive. Superb bass rich kicks provide the intro as big crashes lead into a very cool shuffling hat sequence. A chilling, scratching type sound dominates alongside subtle synths that sit in the background which gives this track a sinister vibe. Warm basses give great depth to the sound making this a hell of a ride that should be a tool in any set.

PETRI PETRO – SIDE EFFECTS EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Belgian DJ and producer Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro is back at Basiks with his superb four tracker, ‘Side Effects EP’. His last outing saw a fantastic remix on Tribal Warriors’, ‘New York To Ibiza’.

First up we have the powerful bass driven ‘Protocol’ that comes out of the blocks with a full on in your face throbbing bass and phat kick combi and contrasted with subtle sharp hat. Well placed percussions ease their way into the sound with a few white noise FX thrown in, but it’s that monster bass that dominates throughout. Perfect ammo for those darker rooms and a track that will blow you away!

‘Vital Signs’ sets of with punchy kicks and crispy hats alongside a deep pulsating bass. Cool FX find a space in the track as the groove evolves with the introduction of cool synth. A short respite from the bass allows you to get ready for the next round resulting in a proper slice of driving Techno that will invade your senses and take full control.

‘Immunity’ goes straight for the jugular from the outset as a gritty bass is unleashed with a nice and chunky kick as backup. Cool rhythms are borne out of the well crafted hats and percussion arrangement as the track powers through. Nice and simple one shot synths are the perfect partner to this solid bass driven Techno cut.

The title track ‘Side Effects’ rounds up this superb EP. Snappy kicks and a deep resonating bass get us moving alongside a very cool percussion arrangement. The bass holds a steady groove as it drives on throughout the sound. The break focuses on the percussions before slamming us right back into this full on pumping Techno beat!

TRIBAL WARRIORS – NEW YORK TO IBIZA (BONZAI BASIKS)

 

 

Already we have another release from the recently revamped Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E., with New York To Ibiza”. His last outing on Basiks “08” had a great reaction and now we are back for more with this one which also comes with no less than four stunning remixes.

The Original Mix is a full on tech fest, a percussive intro with a huge chunky kick drops us into a superb synth driven riff. Blasting into the main track we are greeted with a throbbing bass that forces those feet to dance as the rhythm takes over. Great manipulation on the vocal samples adds texture to the sound, top stuff and a must for those late night techno parties.

Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro steps up with the first of two remixes, Petri is back fresh after his first stint on Basiks with the “Revival EP”. His Left Pace remix takes the tech sound to new heights as the sounds combine beautifully to form a tech stomper. The big focus throughout the track is the synth work as it weaves its magic and hooks you in. The huge bass reverberates and is complimented well with the kicks and rhythmic percussions, great stuff.

Petri’s next mix on this release is his Right Pace remix, a much more chunky affair with a deeper bass that packs a huge punch and will give any sub woofer a run for its money. The percussive elements form a solid rhythm as the track meanders at a steady pace, top notch stuff!

Onofrio Conte is back after his “Endless Love EP” gained support from many jocks around the world, here he serves up his 909 Remix and delivers a track filled with all the gusto of techno. Superb arrangements on the drums and percussion carve out smooth rhythms while the bass sits back menacingly waiting to pounce. Such a well rounded groove and a definite must on playlists all over.

Lastly we have Rion Oidua on remix with a fantastic pumping sound. The intro sets the track up nicely with a cool tribal feel from the percussions, the kicks soon arrive and pack a good thump. When the bass kicks the track gets a huge lift with all the elements coming together beautifully. Superb synth FX sweep in and out of the sound solidifying the groove, brilliant effort and one to watch for sure.

PETRI PETRO – REVIVAL EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

 

 

Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro debuts on Basiks with his “Revival EP”. Petro is Belgium based DJ and producer, he was strongly influenced by early Hip Hop and Big Beat sounds. After studying at SAE in Brussels he gained the required skills in audio production and after listening to the likes of Armand Van Helden and Junior Jack, he decided to start into creating house beats. Since then he has appeared on labels like Dash Deep Recordings and Gam Recordings.

“Revival” is a fine slice of tech fuelled beats, the kicks have a well rounded punch and the offset bass has a shattering, pulsating rhythm. The percussions build up the sound brilliantly and on the break some expert work is applied to FX on the vocal samples. Very strong groove that would be a welcome addition in any techno set.

“Identity” gets right into techno mode from the get go. Chunky kicks and prominent percussion make up a solid flowing rhythm. The bassline goes way deep exuding a lot of power in the process while the FX work has a massive impact on the sound. A hypnotic groover from start to finish!
