Bonzai Progressive stalwart Matan Caspi returns with the impressive Check The Windows. Fresh from his last outing, Serenity, Matan relishes in unleashing his smooth progressive sounds on our senses. This new cut comes complete with two top class remixes from Manu Riga & Matt Holliday and East Cafe.
The Original Mix sets off with a progressive flavour as pounding kicks are joined by sharp, slicing hats and a rich voice that glides through. A deep, driving bass takes over and becomes the backbone of the groove throughout. Cool stabs litter the sound taking the track deeper into the progressive world. The break throws up a sublime sequence filled with beautiful melodic undertones while a riser takes us to a fantastic climax and then right back into the main groove. A monster tune that you will not want to miss.
The formidable duo, Manu Riga and Matt Holliday are back on remix duty with their TribeHard Remix and yet again they outdo themselves with their blend of progressive styles. As ever Manu remains a constant presence here at Bonzai Progressive, he is fresh from his latest production, along with Fe Malefiz and their track Forgotten as well as a remix over at Green Martian on SeamLess Beat & Franz Lehmann’s Toward Peace. He recently took the decks after a short hiatus and performed sets for TM Radio (Deep House) and Ethnoscience (with Matt) on Progressive Beats. Matt Holliday also remains a constant deliverer of only the finest grooves in both producing and DJing. His last outing with Manu, Submerged Needs, is still a go to track for many top jocks including Solarstone as well as his remix on Facade’s Dystopia on JOOF Recordings. Currently the guys are back in the studio working on more material which we are already excited about, stay tuned for more. As the title of the remix suggests we are in for an epic ride filled with tight beats and solid grooves. The intro boasts a nice punchy kick as sharp stabby synths come through, while the tribal elements of the track start to build. A deep, probing bassline soon commands the track as we settle in for the duration. On the break we get treated to a masterful display of layered pads and strings alongside a strong voice before getting right back into the main groove. Definitely a must have track that will keep the floors jammin.
East Cafe aka Gabor Kaszas returns to Bonzai with his superb remix. We last saw Gabor on remix duty for Audio Noir’s Midnight Til Morning, which was a part of the Almost Famous Reworked Volume 2 collection. Since then he has released on various labels and continues to deliver his intelligent progressive style. Here he cuts no corners on the quality front as he takes us deep into the progressive world. Right from the off we get locked on with an array of solid beats and wonderfully arranged synths that just seem to flow effortlessly through the sound. The bassline bubbles along and really drives the track beautifully. The break throws up rich, sweeping strings that give way to that brilliant bassline that just mesmerizes throughout. A top notch effort that will not disappoint.
