ANTONIO CITARELLA – DREAM SEQUENCER (PROGREZ)

Time for another taste of progressive techno with Antonio Citarella with his two tracker Dream Sequencer. Antonio has been churning out the quality at every turn and this one is no exception, we recently saw his previous track, Traveller, gain lots of support as well as his superb remix on Audio Noir’s Almost Famous Reworked package.

First up we have the title track, Dream Sequence, the intro here is filled with cool crispy hats and rising FX that lead up to a nice and solid chunky kick. A fantastic array of in your face percussive hits bleed into the sound and ramp up the rhythms nicely. A raw sounding analogue bass plucks its way through and brings a real depth to the vibe. Strange and surreal melodies float around and are contrasted with some very smooth brighter phrases that bring a real dynamic feel to the track. There also lies a pure and organic flow here that resonates beautifully throughout. Top notch yet again and a definite must have track.

Radio Connection intros with a full, lush synth pad that sweeps by in a haunting manner. Sharply contrasted hats appear and bring a shuffling rhythm to the intro before we settle down with a cool punchy kick and a deep throbbing bass. The track holds some expert arrangements that serve to keep the booty’s shakin along with its classy electro styled grooves. The break unleashes more of those wonderful synths before a brilliant classic snare fill gets us back to the main track for the duration. A beautiful and mesmerizing sound filled with deep grooves and classic percussions that will turn a few heads for sure.

EGO PROGRESSUS – THE BOW TIE (PROGREZ)

Ego Progressus returns with another of his stunningly deep and tough progressive workouts in this two tracker entitled The Bow Tie. We last saw him with The Broken Circle earlier this year and no doubt we’ll be in for another real treat.

First up we have The Bow Tie which sets its dark tones right from the off as deep basses permeate through the speakers with shuddering effect. Snappy kicks lie in cool contrasts with the bass and are joined by subtle percussions to provide a steady rhythm. Lots of colour and textures can be found within the sound as a myriad of expert FX paint this dark progressive picture.

Not For Horses Song intros with a nice punchy kick that is joined by a very cool percussive arrangement to the backdrop of a sinister deep pad. Eerie vocal samples come through early on and give you a sense of what’s to come as the layers build a dark and surreal groove. A wonderfully rich bass gives the track a boost and carries the dark element forward beautifully. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

ANTONIO CITARELLA – TRAVELER (PROGREZ)

Antonio is back with another stunning cut on Progrez entitled Traveler which brings together his many years of experience in production and DJing. Antonio loves new digital technologies as well as classic sounds from analogue synths.. Back in April this year his I Believe In The Music EP hit the floors with lots of support and there is no doubt this new effort will be getting the same treatment.

First up is the delectable Traveler with its deep and dark tones running through the sound beautifully. Aside from a super tight drum arrangement we are treated to some stunning acid blips and squelches which add lots of analogue flavours to the groove. The bassline is the perfect companion as it trots alongside adding to the smooth rhythmic flow of the track. A deep droning synth rises up through the sound and brings those darker elements with the help of some cool synth hits. Hugely infectious groove here that will be a draw for many jocks no doubt.

Yari is up next and the intro gets the senses tingling with a nice deep bass sound with contrasting bright rhythmic hats and percussions overhead. The track settles into a smooth groove as nice chunky kicks come through alongside lush basses. As the track progresses you will find yourself locked in to the subtle hypnotic grooves. A fantastic track for the late night floors.

PHAT TRAKTOR – NEGATIVE (PROGREZ)

Spanish DJ and producer Phat Traktor is back at Progrez with another of his sublime dark edged progressive cuts. His last outing marked his debut with Voyage EP and he did not disappoint.

First up is the title track Negative with its smooth deep and techy progressive vibes. Understated kicks are caught up in a subtle percussion arrangement as wispy FX create a late night atmosphere. Prominent chord stabs dominate with sharp precision and remain the focus throughout. A low end bass provides a solid bass and make this a definite must for those late night terrace parties.

Pam 52 intros with a nice punchy kick with classic crispy hats driving the percussion section. Warbling FX fade through giving that techy edge to the sound as cool strumming guitar riffs give off a surreal Balearic vibe. As the track evolves plucky notes compliment the sound beautifully to the backdrop of fantastic vocal samples. Just the tonic for a hot night time session on a beach anywhere this summer.

METRONOMES – MADAM BUTTERFLY (PROGREZ)

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.

David debuts on Progrez with this wonderful two tracker entitled Iowa. David is a UK based DJ and producer. He writes his own music using Cubase and Reason and has been producing for around 2 years now, building his portfolio of original works and remixes.

We kick off with Iowa which intros with a brilliantly tight percussion arrangement. Big and ballsy breaks soon take command of the track as the layers begin to form. A deep bubbling bass raises its head and leads us into a wonderful 4×4 driven groove filled with deep progressive house vibes. The break delivers a beautifully tweaked atmosphere as an array of pads and FX take over before slamming right back into the main groove, top notch stuff.

These Galaxies intros with a nice punchy kick and minimal percussions. A warm synth key brings a deep house vibe which evolves into a very cool percussive sounding hook. Expertly crafted FX come through adding cool textures to the sound. The subtle bassline hangs back and is brought forward to show its true pulsating power. Top quality cut that will definitely be a must in many boxes.

BEYOND BEATS – SOMEWHERE OUT THERE (PROGREZ)

Beyond Beats aka Sam LoPiccolo is a DJ and producer from Providence in the USA. He’s been DJing for around 5 years and producing music for around 4 and half years. He likes to produce deep house and techno and will sometimes branch out into other genres if his mood takes him. Here we see his Bonzai debut on our deep progressive imprint Progrez with the sublime two tracker entitled ‘Somewhere Out There’.

‘Somewhere Out There’ intros with a surreal distant vocal and metallic rising FX sounds before effortlessly cruising into a smooth deep progressive tech vibe with cool kicks and rhythmic percussions. The intro FX continue throughout with various other sounds layering on top to create a very cool atmosphere. The bass sounds on offer are stunning, from the deep low end subs to staccato sequences and more. The short break keeps us locked into that surreal vibe before we are taken back into the main groove. Top notch stuff!

‘Featuring Some Birds’ gives off a strangely dark vibe right from the off with those chunky kicks and a superb bass filled FX sequence. Percussions slowly build to provide a solid rhythm for the track as deep rooted basses start to come through. Brilliantly crafted drum patterns give a slight tribal feel to the sound which adds lots of character and will no doubt make this a firm favourite in many sets.

EGO PROGRESSUS – THE BROKEN CIRCLE (PROGREZ)

Ivan Shadrin aka Ego Progressus returns after a short hiatus to Progrez with another stunning deep progressive house workout. The Broken Circle offers up two sublime tracks and shows us that this guy knows how to cut a track.

First up is The Broken Circle which intros with a punchy kick and minimal percussion alongside a surreal sequence that evolves with each section of the track. A growling organic bass rears its head and is the perfect companion for the darkly synth pads that weave in and out of the sound. The break descends into an eerie atmosphere filled with crazy FX and a brilliant spoken word sample before the track slams back in your face and continues on its journey to the depths.

O.B. is up next and gets moving with a nice clipped kick and clap combo alongside some brilliant metallic synths. In the background and very contrasting arp eases its way into the sound as the percussions begin to build and the synths intensify. Dark and sinister vocal samples lurk below as the bass bubbles all around. The break reveals a beautiful pad sequence as those metallic sounds are forced back. The vocal on the break is surreal as it’s covered in effects that enhance it beautifully. Deep, dark stuff that’s sure to be a hit with many!
