Turkish DJ and producer duo Fermanz and Del Castio mark their Bonzai Progressive debut with the dark progressive tones of 3 Degrees. Fermanz grew up with a musical family and was collecting records from a very young age. Influenced by the sound of the 80’s, he started to DJ in 1999 before getting the producer bug the following year where he released his first effort titled Awakening. Several releases followed including Save A Prayer which was remixed by Stan Kolev. He decided to change his name from Peaceful Mind to Fermanz and has since signed with a few labels. So much more to come from this guy and it’s great to him here. Del Castio started his music journey in 1997 as an MC at Hip Hop parties. In 2002 he took to the decks and became a pro DJ, working at various clubs and events. His style is varied, he can turn his mixing skills to any genre which puts him in a unique position. He loves the reaction from his crowds while DJing and also when he plays his own latest creations. Delighted to have him on board and hopefully we’ll see much more in the future.
3 Degrees is an intense, deep progressive workout which intros with a nice punchy kick drum and sharp hi hat. Cool percussions make their way into the groove as dark drone pads fade in alongside sinister stabs. A prominent plucky bassline adds an urgency to the sound as more striking synth plucks come through before an acid laden bass sequence takes over, sending us high into the stratosphere. An outstanding slice that will most definitely be a welcome addition to any late-night session.
