The impressive Philthy Chit aka UK based Phil Taylor delivers the powerful progressive groover Dichoctic which comes backed up with a remix from Tribal Warriors. Phil is currently churning out top class work as shown in his last release Confabulate as well as releases on other labels including Perfecto Records with more in the pipeline soon. More recently his works have gained popularity with appearances on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends compilation. He remains an in demand remix artist with many requests coming in thick and fast. Check out Phil’s new radio show Perfecto Black on DI.FM which airs on the first Wednesday of every month from 6pm GMT where you’re sure to catch only the best sounds from Bonzai and beyond.
The Original Mix gets us going with a tough, pounding kick and sharp hat intro as metallic hits drop on the downbeat. A cool shuffling rhythm ensues as a deep bubbling bassline takes control of the sound. The deep bass remains a constant while a sub bass filters off to add an edgy touch. A fantastic ‘deep in the house’ vocal wafts through the sound beautifully and adds a great character to the sound. On the break cascading arps take the track deeper into the progressive world resulting in a super tight groove that will hold you in its grip for the duration. Superb stuff yet again from Phil and a must have track for sure.
The Stripped Mix is a much smoother track than its original sibling. The powerful deep grooves remain but with a slightly different drum arrangement that still packs a huge punch as it dishes out a full flowing rhythmic sequence. The cascading arps are still a big feature alongside that deep, solid bassline and house inspired vocal. Definitely not to be missed.
On the remix we have Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E./Push who we last saw on Bonzai Basiks with his Defiance EP. 2014 was another big year for Mike as his tracks and remixes gained chart topping status across various portals. Already in 2015 he has some great things lined up including more Push Live which always makes for exciting times. Don’t forget to check out Club Elite Sessions to stay up to date with all the goings on. The remix intros with a muted kick as a wasp-like sound fades through, instantly grabbing your attention. A strong throbbing bass rises up from the depths and is joined by bright, crispy hats and sharp claps which provide a cool rhythm to the sound. The kicks are transformed into nice punchy shots that balances things out beautifully. An intensity builds in the track as synths begin to form up alongside that very cool vocal. On the break the swirling synths are tweaked and filtered into a frenzy before we crash back down with a superb kick and analog synth combi. A proper tech fuelled groover here that is the perfect crossover track into the progressive world.
A welcome return to Bonzai Progressive for Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E./Push with his superb Defiance EP. Mike, as ever remains on top of his game with gigs across the globe and multiple studio projects going on. On top of all that he religiously dishes out the good on his Club Elite Sessions radio show among other things. No doubt 2015 will be another stellar year and what a great way to kickstart with this full on Tech fuelled monster.
Defiance settles into a smooth Tech ride as muted kicks are joined by cool stabs that ooze house flavours. The kicks beef up and bring that tech edge to the sound as crispy hats filter through beautifully. The multi layered bassline morphs its way through the sound with a raw energetic flow that really gets the track moving while sweeping FX fill the spaces. Superb stuff yet again and a tune that will turn a few heads no doubt.
Get Up intros with a smooth and rhythmic drum arrangement that leads us up to an in your face synth riff that dominates the sound. This stunning riff brings an infectious groove that locks you in for the ride as a deep rooted vocal rises up. A superb organic bass comes through and keeps with the tribal elements of the track. On the break the vocal returns alongside a wall of noisy percussions before slamming us back into the main sound for the duration. Top notch grooves and a definite must have.
7th installment in the Pure Tech series, this time with original tracks and remixes by Van Czar, Kini Rao, Charles Ramirez, Moll, Jamez, Jimmy Galle, Sa.Du, Cele, Ozan Kanik, Enrico Caruso, Ozgur Uzar, Jonathan Calvo, Andy Slate, Zolex, Alessan Main, Kevh Ripple, Eric Kanzler, Ed Whitty, The Electric 10, Diego Herrera, Onofrio Conte, Tribal Warriors, Oz Romita, Roderick Fox, HP Vince, John Manning, Redhead, Franky Jones and NaaN.
Koen Mertens aka Daddy makes an appearance on BP with “Accelerator” which comes backed up with a superb remix. Koen’s last release on Eyepatch was well received and no doubt this release will see support from all over.
The Original Mix gets us moving straight into a tech fuelled progressive groove as the intro blasts out some fine chunky kicks and tech styled percussions. A simple vocal sample adds cool textures to the sound before a deep synth riff starts to build. The bassline sets the track on fire as it churns out hypnotic rhythms. The bassline continues through the break transforming many times alongside some amazing FX work before coming right back into a full on monster tune!
Tribal Warriors is busy as always and yet again we see a side of M.I.K.E. where he gets right into the nitty gritty realm of tech on his remix. The track intros with a vocal sample and minimal percussion, out of nowhere a stunning kick blasts through as the rhythms begin to form through some tight percussions before breaking down into a fantastic French-kiss-esque bassline. The bassline relentlessly powers on drawing you in to its hypnotic rhythm while rising pads sweep through. Superbly worked track that will be a feature in many sets for sure, one to watch!
Already we have another release from the recently revamped Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E., with New York To Ibiza”. His last outing on Basiks “08” had a great reaction and now we are back for more with this one which also comes with no less than four stunning remixes.
The Original Mix is a full on tech fest, a percussive intro with a huge chunky kick drops us into a superb synth driven riff. Blasting into the main track we are greeted with a throbbing bass that forces those feet to dance as the rhythm takes over. Great manipulation on the vocal samples adds texture to the sound, top stuff and a must for those late night techno parties.
Petro Chatzopoulos aka Petri Petro steps up with the first of two remixes, Petri is back fresh after his first stint on Basiks with the “Revival EP”. His Left Pace remix takes the tech sound to new heights as the sounds combine beautifully to form a tech stomper. The big focus throughout the track is the synth work as it weaves its magic and hooks you in. The huge bass reverberates and is complimented well with the kicks and rhythmic percussions, great stuff.
Petri’s next mix on this release is his Right Pace remix, a much more chunky affair with a deeper bass that packs a huge punch and will give any sub woofer a run for its money. The percussive elements form a solid rhythm as the track meanders at a steady pace, top notch stuff!
Onofrio Conte is back after his “Endless Love EP” gained support from many jocks around the world, here he serves up his 909 Remix and delivers a track filled with all the gusto of techno. Superb arrangements on the drums and percussion carve out smooth rhythms while the bass sits back menacingly waiting to pounce. Such a well rounded groove and a definite must on playlists all over.
Lastly we have Rion Oidua on remix with a fantastic pumping sound. The intro sets the track up nicely with a cool tribal feel from the percussions, the kicks soon arrive and pack a good thump. When the bass kicks the track gets a huge lift with all the elements coming together beautifully. Superb synth FX sweep in and out of the sound solidifying the groove, brilliant effort and one to watch for sure.
