Greek musician Greg Filaretos aka P4SS3NG3R debuts on Bonzai progressive with the superb, Desert Wolf. Greg mainly produces psytrance, though he is known to delve into other genres, including progressive house under his P4SS3NG3R alias, trance using his Soundpass moniker and indie dance music under the guise Bellar C alongside vocalist Bellar Chaimov. Through these years he has managed to make remarkable releases and collaborations all over the world. He has one of the most unique and hypnotic progressive sounds, combining influences of trance and techno with haunting melodies and structed basslines. His majestic beats build up the tension on the dance floor adding subtle, yet clearly crafted layers which are instantly recognisable. His productions and remixes manage to keep his signature sound embedded whilst still constantly delivering evolution.

The Original Mix opens the release, heralding in a dreamy vibe with chunky beats and ethereal pads. A powerful rippling bass drives the groove while airy voices and those hypnotic pads combine alongside subtle arps and striking synths. Wonderful and mysterious, not to be missed. On remix duties we have regular contributor Ewan Rill, who is a very much respected artist on the scene, this guy has racked up a quite impressive back catalogue on various top labels over the years including Balkan Connection, Abstract Space and JOOF to name just a few. Here, the interpretation takes a more direct route to the floors with punchy beats, shuffling percussions and strong, subby basses. The track evolves effortlessly into a myriad of melodic phrases with euphoric qualities before crashing back to full-on mode for the duration.
