Madrid based artist Jesus Gonzalez aka Jacob Singer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb My Inner EP. Jacob started out in music playing the guitar and was heavily influenced by rock and metal bands for many years. After he discovered electronic music however, he soon realised that this is where his passion lay. Now a veteran on the progressive scene he has churned out many noteworthy releases on various labels. He has already got off to a great start for 2017 by signing with Bonzai as well as hosting his own radio shows and, just a few short weeks ago he showed up on guest mix duties for our very own Bonzai Basik Beats. Great to have him on board and we hope to see more in the future.
My Inner offers up a seriously stunning slice of progressive house with its alluring draw that pulls you in thanks to expertly crafted arrangements and mesmeric sounds. In the background we find a host of sounds that combine beautifully to create a multi layered textures that compliments the main track. Up front we’re led deep into the progressive abyss with a tight drum section and a hypnotic bassline that drives the track effortlessly. Swirling pads and subtle melodic arps greet us on the break before we head back into the main track for the duration. A top notch cut that will definitely be a welcome addition in any late night set.
Tiahuanaco Returns is a steady, fine flowing progger that will be welcomed on the floors no doubt. A subtle, laidback intro precedes an ever growing groove that delivers a superb progressive experience. Pumping kick drums are joined by bright and crispy shuffling hats while a deep and moody bassline rattles the lower frequencies. Pulsing synths mesmerize as sweet melodic arpeggios take over on the break. A beautifully crafted slice that will definitely grab a lot of attention.
