Rishi K. is back with another round of top notch progressive vibes. Since his “White Crane” release Rishi has been busy in the remix department for labels like AK-Tek Records and Bonzai Progressive. Here we have his latest works, the two tracker “Always Home”.
The title track gives off a smooth progressive house vibe from the intro, the rhythm builds nicely with cool open hats and synths before power from the bassline and chunky kicks take you in its grasp. The bassline is a huge focus here as it weaves its way through note changes perfectly, on top of that is some nifty synth work and a real cool retro vocal sample which adds flavour. The break filters out and comes back with a bang into this awesome driving groove.
“Going Viral” takes us deeper with a superb progressive house groove. Smooth intro with a subtle kick and pad with some synth keys coming through. The offset bassline sets up the track for the duration with its deep, lush trimmings and things come together brilliantly. On the break an arp courses through the sound wrapping this up perfectly, top quality stuff.
Leicester, UK based DJ’s and producers Aaron Taylor and Charlie Robinson make up Rue Duo. The guys are making their debut on Bonzai with full on prog house monster “Set & Let”, and with a slew of quality mixes which makes for an awesome package. Rue Duo have a few releases under their belts on labels like Black Hole, Straight Up and Wildlife with support from the likes of Erick Morillo, Tom Novy and Lucien Foort to name a few with more projects in the works for the future.
The original mix is a straight shooting prog house tune with a stunning vocal. Nice steady rhythms and a deep chunky bassline converge to give off a sense of depth with the vocal adding contrast. Cleverly arranged percussions and minimal synths make this tune stand out and is a sure fire winner on any floor.
Dark progressive maestro Manu Riga steps up to remix duties and completely transforms the original into something very different. Super punchy kicks intro this track with a brilliant bassline providing a strong groove. On the break we get a very subtle melody before thumping back into the main groove and that bassline, great use of the vocal also. A master of the darker side of prog at work, this is a tune that will be on many playlists.
Tech stalwart Crocy returns to the mixing desk with his remix. The track begins with a cool low end kick that builds to a bassline full of lush heavy vibes, coupled with a round of beautifully arranged percussions and backed up with more of this wonderful vocal. Top notch tech yet again from Crocy and a must have for any box.
Another regular Rishi K. is up next with a fine example of prog house. The vocal forms the most part of the intro before we kick right into a strong, solid groove made up of thick kicks and a round of metallic type percussions. Cool stabby synths weave their way throughout the track and a deep bassline props everything up beautifully, pure quality!

UK based duo Tom and Andre team up for a wonderful slice of prog house with a couple of quality remixes. Tom has an impressive CV in EDM, growing up with the sounds of the 80’s with New Order and Tears For Fears and later on the Rave scene. Clubbing and working all over the English Midlands it wasn’t long before production called and releases on Seasons Recordings, Open Bar and Sniff Your Ears Recordings to name a few would follow. Andre has seen releases on the same labels and the guys have joined forces on a few occasions in the past. “Sunrise Over Ganymede” comes with 2 great remixes.
The original is a real treat, starting off with a sweet melodic sound, sharp crisp hats are soon followed by a perfect kick. The melody continues throughout with lots of different sounds playing a role, a nice pad lies in the background. The bassline takes hold and a steady hypnotic rhythm is formed, classy stuff.
DJ and Producer Rishi Gargour aka Rishi. K is at the controls for the first of 2 remixes. Rishi’s “White Crane” on GM was well received and here his talents shine yet again. Moving into the deeper end of prog house with a deep thud on the kicks and a sublime bassline. Lots of FX fill the spaces and some very nifty instruments play a big role here, very well crafted remix indeed.
Van Bellen is up next with a superb solid groover. Spanish producer Yoogie offers up a taste of epic progressive house vibes, fully charged chugging bassline with a host of wonderful FX gets under your skin and holds you in its grip, huge sound here and will be on a lot of playlists for sure.
Returning to Green Martian after his last release “White Krane” is Rishi K with another inside look at his amazing progressive house sounds on his “One Step Ahead EP”.
The title track “One Step Ahead” is a melodically fuelled prog house groover, kicking off in a true house vibe with nice tremeloed sounds the tune takes a turn towards prog with a superb bassline, we are treated to some voice samples from a space mission (moon landing) which works very well with the sounds. Very well constructed solid slice of music.
“Skybound” continues this fine run of quality sounds with another super grooving progressive house slab. Again we are teased with lots of house vibes but with those prog undertones that keep the tune rocking, on the break a sweet piano melody is at the forefront and kicks back with that deep bassline. More samples this time from nature really do give a sense of being in the “sky”.
“The Space Between” goes all out house, cool bouncy feel to the percs and bass with an almost retro sound that will have all of us guessing, vocal samples are used that work so well with the music, dreamy melodies tie up this track nicely and prove that Rishi K. delivers quality everytime.
Delighted to see the very hard working Rishi back with Green Martian.
