FERDAS DIGITAL – SAND CANDY EP (PROGREZ)

Ferdas Digital is a young, up and coming producer who is making a name for himself in the Deep House, Tech House scene. Here he makes his debut on Progrez with the fantastic four track, Sand Candy EP. He boasts a ton of releases on†prestigious labels including Mandelstam Music, System Recordings, Divine Techno Records and Baroque Records to name a few. Working alongside notable vocalists such as Marcie and Ange, Ferdas Digital crafts deep and moody Techno inspired tracks guaranteed to find a place in the virtual record bag of many DJ’s.

Sand Candy kicks off this EP with a smooth deep and grooving vibe. The intro is filled with a mixture of percussions that set the rhythmic tone of the track and are joined by a nice punchy kick that will get feet stomping. The big hitter here is a deep pulsating bassline that takes over the track and brings a deep raw vibe to the sound. The superb percussion and drum arrangements stand out well as they keep the juices flowing resulting in a deep tech monster that will turn a few heads for sure.

Little Fix intros with some very cool effected percussions that give off an organic vibe. This soft arrangement is broken by a monstrous bassy kick that dominates the sound. Cool FX work takes us into the main groove as a throbbing bass joins the party. The overall sound gives off a spacious vibe that gets filled up brilliantly by the bass and those kicks. A deep and tech flavoured groove that will be a welcome addition in many sets no doubt.

The strangely titled Mooooumimi is up next and intros with a wonderful quirky array of sounds that blend beautifully to give a rhythmic vibe that builds and builds as the track progresses. A somewhat muted kick has a great impact on the sound while allowing those percussions to stand out. Again we see Ferdas Digital apply a superb bass to his sound, hypnotically rich and warm grooves hold up the sound perfectly with a deep techy house consistency. Cool chord stabs litter the arrangement in all the right places and keeps us locked on for the duration. Top notch yet again.

The tech fuelled vibes of Desman is up next and gets going with a very cool deep thumping kick with a sprinkling of bass tones thrown in to beef it up even more. Subtle percussion patterns come through and hold back allowing this bass vibe to rule the sound. Brighter hats and claps soon follow that unleash a superb flowing rhythmic vibe. A truly relentless display of bass driven tech that will definitely be a featured track among many jocks.

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.

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.
