    AUDIOSTORM – SEISMIC ACTIVITY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

    Montenegro based producer AudioStorm aka Ognjen Vukovic returns to Bonzai Progressive with the outstanding Seismic Activity which comes backed up with two fantastic remixes. His debut – Oblivion EP, came back in May 2015 and quickly gained a lot of attention with features on top download portals. Since childhood this guy has been honed in on quality sounds and these early inspirations have helped him shape the superb progressive style we know today.

    The Original Mix of Seismic Activity opens with a dark tribal driven arrangement that boasts a gritty low end bass synth that lurks menacingly setting the scene for a trek into the depths of progressive. A fantastic bassline comes through and blends effortlessly into the sound with its infectious groove. Brighter, melodic arps cascade down among the deeper sounds bringing a wonderful contrasting texture. Tight drums complete with a powerful punchy kick set up a smooth rhythmic flow as we get totally hooked in on the arrangement. One for the darker rooms that will definitely keep the floors rocking.

    Up first on remix duty we have the formidable Belgian producer and DJ, Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens with his Atomic Remix. This guy has been of fire for quite a while with his superbly constructed originals as well as expertly crafted remixes for a litany of tracks. Since he began his progressive house journey in 2009 he has racked up a quite impressive catalogue of over forty originals and a multitude of remixes, he is definitely a go to guy if you want your sound given that magic touch. His last outing, The Fallen, performed very well indeed featuring on Beatport among others and showing up in many sets across the world. We are delighted to hear he is currently working on an album which we are waiting for very patiently and can’t wait to get a taste. On the remix the intro delivers the Manu Riga sound right from the off as those chunky kicks pound out a solid groove to the backdrop of cool tribal style drums. A strong FM bassline bubbles up from the depths and brings a huge warmth that will reach right into your soul. Distant voices sweep by at distance but become a very effective tool in the sound as they are joined by sweet strings and fleeting pads. A superb spoken vocal fills in the breaks adding a wonderful character to the groove. A definite must have track to keep the floors locked into a progressive flow.

    Berbush & Kotobuki provide the second remix in this pack and yet again they deliver the goods as they did on their Bonzai Progressive debut in August with Shadows EP. Brazilian DJ and producer Berbush aka Bernardo Buschle has notched up a huge amount of respect among his peers due to his solid DJ performances and tight production. Kotobuki has worked alongside Bernardo on the their last three tracks and have proved to be a good connect with each bringing his own unique style, definitely a duo to be on the lookout for. On the remix the guys go for the more upbeat vibe as punchy kicks are joined by cool and crisp hats the beat out a solid rhythm with a little bit of bounce added in. A deep offset bass throbs at the low end bringing a real sense of depth to the groove as superb layered synths knock out cool house fuelled chords. Tantalising synths roll through on waves while on the break we get a cool arp sequence that leads into those stunning chords before the track kicks back in for the duration. Top notch stuff, not to be missed.
