Zas & Sanze are back with their latest works “Caprioska” which is backed up with two stomping remixes. The Tallinn based dynamic duo continue to churn out quality vibes and they now have a very impressive back catalogue consisting of original material and a ton of remixes.
The Original Mix sets us off with a superbly worked prog groove with tech influences. Beefy kicks and sharp hats provide a steady rhythm accompanied by cool house stabs. The bassline throbs through the track and adds extra weight to the rhythm while a fantastic vocal sample adds a strong texture, another top notch effort!
The first remix comes from Tribal Warriors aka M.I.K.E./Push. As we all know Mike is a very busy guy with DJing and a heavy studio workload but thankfully he has had time to revamp Tribal Warriors as it was one of his popular monikers. Keep an eye out for more TW material in the future. The remix intros with some very cool synth and FX sounds that lead up to a nice rounded kick and crispy hat combo. Lots of tech elements creep through here with the bass taking a dominant role, great use of the vocal here and some fantastic synth work gives this track a huge punch!
Yuriy From Russia provides the next remix, Yuriy has been well received since his first couple of tracks on Bonzai Progressive and Progrez. Here he delivers more of that quality with a well rounded progressive house groove. Nice and steady rhythms are built with minimal percussions and chunky kicks. The big contributor here is that bassline as it meanders through the sound with a warm lush vibe, stabby synths make their mark while on the break a short melodic pad gives way to this thumping prog groove.

Audio Noir is back with another fine slice of progressive for our listening pleasure. “Revelation” comes backed up with a slew of fantastic remixes.
The Original Vox On mix intros with a heavy shuffle type groove on the percussion and drum arrangements. This soon delves into the deep recesses of progressive house as the bassline draws you in, very well crafted track with a diverse range of sounds to keep the ear trained. Subtle melodies are a cool contrast to the overall vibe and on the break an unexpected vocal comes through. Top notch track with a pulsating rhythmic groove.
Veteran Gai Barone steps up to remix duty with his Vox On Wax Remix. Gai is fresh off the back of a wonderful remix for Manu Riga & Nico Parisi’s track “Reborn” and is currently working on new material also. As usual we are treated to a masterclass in progressive vibes from Gai with a sound drenched in deep grooves. A subtle intro builds and builds up to a full flowing hypnotic rhythm with a host of FX doing a great job as the layers continue to build. The break releases a myriad of synths where you can lose yourself completely. Monster of a tune here that will be a perfect fit in many sets!
Italian DJ and producer Matteo Monero is next up on the remix. Matteo is a stalwart in the progressive scene having appeared on top labels like Mystique Music, Sudam and Baroque alongside the likes of Kintar and Loquai. Here he applies his own brand of progressive house and he does it in style. Solid beats create a steady flowing rhythm right from the off with FX adding texture to the sound. The percussions find their way into the track with crisp, sharp hats standing out. A deep bassline lingers in the depths while sweeping pads keep things moving alongside a much more prominent vocal, top quality stuff!
Melbourne based Narel beefs up the groove with his remix. Tougher edged vibe here with the beats and tight arrangements shining through. The deep bassline provides a well rounded groove which will have many floors shaking. Wonderful gated strings come through with the vocal matching up very well with the sound. The break winds things right down before powering back into full swing with an amazing melodic arp, very hard to keep still with this one, the floors are gonna love it.
Near the end we have Yuriy From Russia on the remix. Yuriy has just released two stunning tracks through our Progrez and Bonzai Progressive imprint and is shaping up to be a top draw in the progressive world. Here he adds a much more melodic composition with the bassline serving up some sweet sounds, the vocal works extremely well in this context and the myriad of sounds in the background fill the spaces brilliantly. Superb piano sequences are dotted throughout the track which really gives off a feeling good vibe overall, top quality!
To wrap the pack up the Original Vox Off mix is an added extra, for those who want to lose the vocal then this is for you.
Fresh from his debut on Progrez with the track “Stalker”, Yuriy from Russia now gets to make his mark on BP with a little help from the vocal talents of Ange. “Do You Feel” comes with a vocal and dub mix. Yuriy has appeared on many labels and boasts a very impressive back catalogue with releases on Mystique Music and more. Ange is a popular DJ, producer and vocalist from Russia, she has worked with a whole host of top class artists with her distinct vocal style and her talents have been showcased on many labels worldwide.
The Vocal Mix intros with wide sweeping pads and minimum percussion, a super thumpy kick comes through with a rolling bassline soon following and the groove is born. Nice tight arrangement and the track begins to hypnotize the mind as the sounds ebb and flow. The simple vocal comes forth on the break and straight away Ange’s delectably sultry style captivates. Perfectly pitched and perfectly matched these guys do work very well together and we hope there is more to come.
The Dub Mix is for those of you who want to use the track without the vocal.
Debuting on Progrez we have the talented Yuriy From Russia – who is in fact – from Russia. Yuriy has appeared on many labels and boasts a very impressive back catalogue. Here we are treated to a single tracker entitled “Stalker” which is a perfect addition to the Progrez repertoire.
Standard issue intro with a nice chunky kick and hats providing the building blocks for a ride through the progressive underworld. A very sinister sounding deep bassline is the main focus here, the bass takes full control and the note changes are infectious. The percussions build layer after layer and subtle FX work brings the vibe together. Deep prog synths come through on the break alongside a brilliant pad then the bass comes to take pride of place once more, simply stunning stuff!
