As vinyl continues its steady rise we are pleased to present our next vinyl release, Bonzai Worx Volume 5. After the success of previous wax releases we trawled through our catalogue and came up with four of the hottest and grooviest cuts to get the etching treatment. Tracks from Van Czar featuring Sugar Love, Ecco, Sa.Du and Alfredo Mena as well as a remix from Manuel Palmitesta have all been selected this time for their diverse ranges. Expect deep, groovy, sultry, edgy, gritty and downright banging tracks on this limited pressing.
Sa.Du’s Imaging Your Self gives off deep and sultry sounds as a provocative female vocal swamps the vibe. Cool rhythms are formed out of a tight drum arrangement with punchy kicks and sharp hats. The bassline gels everything together brilliantly and on the break a female vocal comes to life with a huge diva-esque chorus, top notch production in effect.
Ecco’s Switch gets the remix treatment from Bonzai debutant Manuel Palmitesta. The track intros with a punchy kick and classic percussion set up with an in your face hypnotic siren styled synth note that dominates the sound. A very subtle yet effective bass sits in the rear and binds the track together beautifully. On the break a techy element filters into the sound as the percussions keep the groove flowing before we slam right back into full swing with an air raid siren for good measure. Top notch stuff.
Alfredo Mena gives us his track The Scrawl with its full on techno vibes. A deep throbbing sub bass is joined by cool clipped kicks and a superb percussion line followed up with crispy clear hats. Cool vocal samples give the track a darker feel and makes this a strong favourite for the darker rooms. A big feature in the track is the expertly arranged percussion section, tight and to the point as various rhythms filter through alongside a more energetic secondary bass and a continuous metallic perc hit.
Van Czar joins forces with Sugar Love on Love Trip which intros with a tough bass sound and an enticing sultry vocal. The track settles into a full on Techno groove with punchy kicks and super crisp hats alongside that gritty edged bass. The vocals continue to lull you into their lustful grasp and adds a real dynamic contrast to the sound. A real powerful Techno slice yet again from Van and no doubt this one will see a lot of playtime.

Audio Noir recently released his stunning debut artist album Almost Famous which is packed to the brim of wonderfully crafted tracks. Seeing as the album is so good we decided to line up this fantastic remix package with some of the finest cuts off the album and we called in a few of our top remixers to do their thing. Sit back for a journey deep into the progressive abyss and don’t forget to go and check out the originals from this fantastic album.
First up is Under The Sun with a superb remix from Inkfish. Deep and dark tones are felt from the outset as a pounding kick sits over a distant pad. Cool vocal samples crop up throughout adding smooth textures to the groove. Laidback rhythms come off the subtle percussion section and pave the way for the bass which is the star of the show. That bassline just pulses through the track beautifully and keeps the deeper progressive elements on point. The synth work is minimal as it comes through with a raw edge. Top notch cut from Inkfish that will warm up a lot of sets.
The masterful Airwave provides the next remix on One More Night and right from the off you will realise you’re in for a treat as the wonderfully crafted intro lulls you into its grasp. Subtle synths ebb and flow as a bubbling bass fades up bringing with it a fantastic sense of anticipation. A huge kick unleashes a superb breakbeat pattern which takes us to the first break where a stunning guitar strums out a beautiful melodic sequence with the help of some bright synths before getting back into full on mode. A truly epic and hypnotic experience you will not want to miss.
Up next we have the Manu Riga Morning After Remix of Midnight Til Morning which intros with a nice punchy kick that is soon joined by a smooth deep and warming pad. Subtle melodies flow out of the pads alongside some very cool FX. The track does a great job of drawing you in and gripping your mind body and soul for the duration. The bass will move you as it pounds out a superb progressive groove while contrasting bright pads float above. A short break reveals a beautiful piano sequence and a fantastic vocal that takes the track to a new level. Simply wonderful stuff from Manu which is most definitely not to be missed.
Sa.Du is up next with his remix of Morphine. The intro boasts a tight drum arrangement filled with punchy kicks and a round of rhythmic percussions that will have you on the dancefloor in no time. A deep throbbing bass rears its head to get the groove really flowing and commands right through the track. Cool clangy FX come through adding a tech flavour to the sound while smooth arps and synths retain the progressive edge. Overall the track dishes out a driving groove that will be a most welcome addition in any set.
Lastly on this package we have 21street with a remix of La Polaris. Pounding kicks get the track moving to the backdrop of cool percussion patterns as a female vocal comes in every other bar with a sharp delivery. The track breaks briefly before slamming back with a monster bass that just rolls right through the sound brilliantly and setting the progressive house groove on course. Contrasting melodic sequences are born out of a sweet and bright synth as the darker elements continue to flow. A very cool and dynamic slice that will be a feature among many for sure.

Bonzai Basiks stalwart Sa.Du returns with another of his fantastic packages. This time around we have the four tracker ‘Breakfast’. His last outing ‘Field’ at the end of last year saw much support as always and no doubt this one will have heads spinning.
First up we get right into deep tech territory with ‘Breakfast’ as the intro boasts a nice chunky kick alongside some fantastic percussion drums and a scaling FX sound. The track builds nicely as the layers unfold and bringing an intense vibe along the way. The track’s construction is superb and you’ll find yourself coming back for more and finding new patterns each time. Great stuff yet again and a must for any deeper set.
‘Order’ is up next and intros with a stuttering bass and percussion combi. These begin to take shape with the addition of flat snares and rhythmic hats. The bass soon becomes infectious as it relentlessly drives on and the track lifts off with a nice big phat kick. Cool vocal samples are met with some very cool percussion patterns and expertly crafted FX. Energetic and intoxicating rhythms make this a definite hit in those deep tech sets for sure.
‘Spiritual Mind’ gets going with a truly surreal vibe as chunky kicks are coupled with some outstanding FX work and stunning percussion patterns. The bass sits perfectly underneath and allows the myriad of percussive instruments to do their job. Tight arrangements build solid rhythms along the way as the track evolves and becomes a monster of a tune. This is one hell of a hypnotic, epic journey through the deeper side of tech house and is not to be missed.
‘Understand’ rounds of this superb pack and does it in style. Right for the get go you will be locked into this groove as it mercilessly unleashes infectious grooves into your mind. A real driving feel to this as the bass just keeps on going with a little help from a fantastic drum and percussion arrangement. The break offer little respite as we are thrust into a surreal world full of melancholic strings and deep basses alongside cool vocal samples. The track dives right back into full on mode soon after and keeps us hooked to the end, brilliant stuff.
