We welcome the magnificent Gai Barone back to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Flash, which is backed up by a solid remix from Cherry. Gai continues to churn out top quality cuts on various labels and, he is a firm favourite here at BP as his brand of deep, flowing progressive house and trance sits comfortably on the legendary label. His last outing for us – Myonic – was very well received indeed, not to mention his eclectic 2 part In The Mix 006 which also gained a physical release. As well as travelling the world, alluring his fans, his radioshow Patterns is listened to religiously by a worldwide fan base and he is held in very high regard by his peers, with many citing him as an inspiration to produce their own music. Always a pleasure to have this guy around.
The Original Mix opens up into a cosmic world filled with a rolling synth line and pulsing basses. A nice chunky kick drum leads the drums while subtle percussions start to build into a steady flowing rhythm. Hypnotic arpeggios cascade through the groove, lacing the track with sweet melodies. The multi-layered basses add warmth and depth as infectious scathing synths with a retro twist join in. Such a gem of track that flows effortlessly and a solid slice of progressive goodness that will definitely keep the party rocking.
Cherry aka Ukraine based DJ and producer Oleh Cherkes returns on remix duties and once again he delivers the goods in style. No stranger to the scene, Oleh has several releases on various labels and his music enjoys a lot of support from across the board. His first two efforts for us titled Mnong and Alma gained great support as dis his remix on Iga Dep’s Phobia. He is also known for his dynamic, building sets that always pleases the crowd. Great to have him on board here at BP and we hope to see much more soon. On the remix here, we get thrust into a full-on progressive mover thanks to a tight drum section and bright flowing arpeggios. A beefy bassline rolls beautifully through the groove, luring you to the floor while superb melodic percussions and airy pads add an extra layer of progressive bliss. An exceptional cut and a definite must have for the more upbeat party.
