Napalm aka Hungarian producer Nanai PalIt and d-phrag aka Bulgarian DJ Ivan Filipov debut on Bonzai Progressive with this two tracker “Boiling Point” which is backed up with a top notch remix. The guys first got together in 2012 and have been creating some outstanding works since then with releases through Balkan Connection, Balkan Connection Tech and OLD SQL Recordings. A very talented duo with a lot to offer, these guys will for sure be ones to watch in the future.
The Original Mix of “Boiling Point” intros with classic hat and clap structure before rising up to a raw sounding synth line, the background effects create a gritty texture to the sound. When the bass drops the track gets into full on progressive flow and its depth will draw you in ever closer. Big sweeping synths are a big focus point with very subtle melodies lurking in the background, superb stuff.
Greek producer Simos Tagias steps up to remix “Boiling Point”. Simos has seen his music appear on Lynx Records, Modu Records and Baroque Records. His album “Shadows From The Past” along with his other releases have gained support from top jocks all over. The remix takes us deep into the progressive vibe with huge soundscapes filled with lush pads and swirling FX. A strong and steady groove with massive appeal that will be a feature among many playlists for sure.
The Redub of the original is a very powerful progressive track which will sit well in any set and will for sure be a firm favourite.
Finally we have “Summanus” which is another fine example of the deeper side of progressive. Very subtle intro builds up to a pulsating bassline with some quality synth work bringing up the rear. Big pads are matched perfectly with expertly crafted FX. The intensity continues to build after the break as the groove drives on through, top stuff.
