Phi Phi is back at Bonzai Progressive, and this time around he is going solo with the impressive Alone. Featuring remixes from Audio Noir we know that this one will definitely turn a few heads. Phi Phi’s last outing, with studio partner Roddy Reynaert, Atlan performed very well indeed having gained spots on many playlists and DJ charts. Always an exciting time when this guys stuff lands on the desk.
The Original Mix of Alone is a wonderfully constructed slice of driving progressive house. Nice and big chunky kicks stand out as a solid chugging bassline works effortlessly on the groove alongside a tight drum arrangement. In the background sweeping pads create cool melodies that captivate throughout. As we head into the break we find ourselves totally immersed in the sound as a deep droning bass note fades out and reveals a heart beat sound before we are slammed back into the main sound for the duration. A definite must have track in your arsenal and perfect fodder for those building sets.
Australian producer Audio Noir is up to his tricks again as he delivers his Rekonstruction and Instrumental mixes. It was only a short time ago when we last saw this guy with his own Progressive Tales, as well as a few remixes for other artists. Currently he is working on some exciting brand new material which will hopefully be revealed very soon, in the meantime sit back and take in these sublime sounds. Right from the off we find ourselves in the middle of a surreal sounscape filled with wonderful FX that pop up all over. Subtle percussions fade in and out as electrified sounds rattle through and lead us up to a huge breaks sequence. A real deep and throbbing bass joins in the fun as those break beats gather pace in an almost Drum n Bass tempo. The breakdown offers a respite complete with soft pads that soon fade out and leave us with a screaming vocal, which is left out of the Instrumental, and grinding synths. The drum arrangement is top notch as intricate patterns combine in a solid rhythmic state that keep us locked in for the duration. Excellent stuff yet again from down under you will not want to miss.
