Alan Ibanez returns to Bonzai Progressive for his full release debut with the superb, Arib. Alan first appeared on BP back in 2018 with a solid remix on Following Light & K.Oshkin – Return To Sources. Since 2007 he has been wowing crowds with his superb sounds that incorporate several genres into ethereal, atmospheric, melodic and full-of-rhythm music. In 2014 he burst onto the international scene with the release, As We Are, which later would be licensed to more than 20 international labels. His main music influences are fellow producers such as CID Inc, Dmitry Molosh, Guy J, Khen and Hernan Cattaneo among others. His music is championed by many throughout the world and we’re delighted to have him here.
Kicking things off, the Original Mix weaves an epic slice of progressive house goodness. Thick, lush basses dominate as subtle melodies rise up through atmospheric pads. Exotic percussions and a solid, thumping kick drum complete the construction. Ewan Rill makes a welcome return to the label with a sold remix, continuing a string of fine cuts for us over the years. Here, he sends us deeper into the progressive house sound, bringing a chunkier vibe full of depth and intrigue. Soft melodies contrast with droning basses as dancey rhythms play out. Top-notch once again, not to be missed. Aurelien Stireg’s remix concludes the release, offering up a wonderfully captivating track. Right from the off we’re hooked as dreamy sounds combine with enchanting voices. The track takes a darker turn as the drums and bass are introduced, opening up a dystopian world which provides stark contrasts with the opening sequence. A superb effort that will not disappoint.
