We welcome Edinburgh based producer Kadien to Bonzai Progressive with the top-notch, Sunrise. Kadien’s sound is a balance of rhythm and melody, which is manifested from his passion for dance music. He started to learn about music from a young age, and after attending Diynamic Music Festival in Amsterdam in 2018, he began to look at producing darker, more progressive sounds. Influences from the likes of Solomun and Denis Horvat continue to inspire him as he enriches his own style. A pleasure to have him here.
The release opens with the Original Mix, a powerful, multi-layered, dark progressive mover. Deep basses and contrasting melodic pads with cinematic qualities combine beautifully as squelchy sequences seek attention. Narik returns to Bonzai on remix duties, fresh off the back of his last effort here, Albafica. He continues to impress and this remix is no exception. On the remix, he has honed in on that cinema style sound with the pads, adding layers of arpeggios and airy voices. The break reveals rich, wide pads before the groove returns, keeping us captivated for the duration.
