MANU RIGA – TAI CHI GIRL (REMIXES) (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Top Bonzai producer Manu Riga is back with a re-vamp, alongside two superb remixes of his 2010 stomper Tai Chi Girl. We recently saw his Ethnology remix of JWM’s Wild Soul, which was our first glimpse at his tougher side with aggressive beats and driving grooves. Aside from that he has struck up a new partnership with the superbly talented Matt Holliday, expect to see some greatness from these two early next year. A very exciting time in the world of Manu Riga lies ahead as he ploughs through his exhausting workload, so stay tuned for more we promise you will not be disappointed.

First up is the Manu Riga’s 2014 Revisited mix. The intro gets us moving with a nice punchy kick and a smooth plucked bass as shuffling hats bring a steady rhythm. Ethnic voices litter the groove and take us to the break where we get a look at those very cool melodies on offer throughout. Sweeping pads float across the sound beautifully taking your mind on a sublime journey taking you higher and higher with the introduction of the wonderfully rich flute. A brilliant and contrasting remake on the beautiful original that will definitely be a firm favourite among many.

It’s been a while since we saw Samotarev around these parts and we’re delighted he returns with this fantastic remix. The intro sets off with a punchy kick as a rolling bassline gets the groove moving. Bright crispy hats build up the rhythm alongside a tight arrangement on the drums and sets the scene for an epic ride. The track settles into its flow as a much fuller, warmer bass shows up, hooking you in to the vibe. Cool eerie synths fill the space as well placed FX add beautiful textures to the sound. The main break reveals a melodic sequence as plucked strings deliver that ethnic trait associated with the tune and brings out the true character of the track. A relentless and driving prog groove that will appeal to many.

Thorin delivers his remix and transforms the blissful original into a full on driving progger. Fresh off the back of his latest works, Secrets, we always know that Thorin brings his A-game with quality in mind. Nice big chunky kicks provide the intro as crispy percussions form up bringing a cool rhythm to the sound. Things start to toughen up with gritty synths rising alongside cool FX and a melodic pad sequence. As the layers build we get a taste of those ethnic influences in the form of superb plucked instruments and that baying vocal. At the midway point on this epic journey the myriad of sounds have blended together beautifully with the bassline doing a great job holding everything in place. This one really gets under your skin with its mesmerizing melodies and driving grooves, not to missed.

Rounding off this superb package is the 2010 Remastered UK Progressive Mix which intros with smooth breaks that build a solid rhythm alongside a groovy bass that dances across the scales. Subtle pads rise up and take us into the true theme of the track, an ethnically charged atmospheric progressive groover. Wonderful vocals captivate as melodic arps flow through the sound creating a scene full of bliss. A track that stands the test of time, if you don’t have it, go get it.

THORIN – SECRETS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Thorin is back with his follow up to Hallucinogen back at the end of 2013 with Secrets which comes packed with three superb remixes. Over the last several months Thorin has been a busy guy with a string of remixes for the likes of Nico Parisi, Gai Barone and Audio Noir as well DJ slots on Bonzai Basik Beats and his own monthly podcast. Today Thorin keeps the progressive vibe alive with this fresh new cut.

First up we have the Original Mix that sets off with thumping kick and a wonderfully rich bass that hooks you right into its groove. Subtle percussions bring a smooth rhythmic flow to the sound as lush pads sit in the wings alongside cool arps. The first break throws up a brilliant spoken word sample that gives the track character as well as a narrative that will invoke deep thinking. A proper driving infectious groove ensues and takes us to the main break where the arps take over before we get thrust right back into full swing. Top notch yet again from Thorin and a definite must in any DJ’s box.

Manu Riga is first up to remix duty with another of his sublime progressive journeys. Manu is fresh from his fantastic Shadow of Life which saw massive support across many top portals as well as a firm favourite on the floors. Here he sets us up for one of his inspiring rides through deep prog vibes. The intro boasts a nice punchy kick and wistful FX that ebb and flow throughout bringing a mesmerizing effect to the sound. A beautifully warm bass grabs a hold of your senses and locks you in while subtle gated synths begin to form up. The break brings those wistful pads to the fore as a spoken vocal sample comes through and then it’s back to the main groove for this relentless journey which is most definitely not to be missed.

Next up we have a remix from Mark Found who has already made a big impact with his recent mix on Manu Riga’s Shadow Of Life as well as his own productions Sagittarius and Tribute which he produced under the guise Duluth. Here Mark takes a deeper approach to the sound as he introduces superb dark elements into the grooves. Chunky kicks and expertly crafted percussion arrangements keep the rhythm flowing as sinister sounding pads creep through alongside a hypnotic bassline that dominates with its pulsating rhythm. The break brings up those pads with a spoken vocal off in the distance keeping the deep vibe flowing. Superb offering here that will no doubt keep the darker floors active with its infectious grooves.

Lastly we have Deuzler with his remix, he is fresh off the back of his last remix on Audio Noir’s Brooklyn Xpress which came shortly after his debut Go Toward the Light. On the remix he takes the track firmly down the progressive house route with wonderful pounding kicks and a subtle percussion arrangement that keeps the rhythm steady and solid. Beautifully warm and lush deep basses inject the groove with a hypnotic vibe that keeps you locked in. Such a top notch cut that will be a hit among many for sure.
