Steve Sai returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Drops which comes backed up with two top class remixes. We last saw Greek DJ and producer Steve back at the start of 2015 with a remix on Mindgamers’ The Preachers which gained a lot of support from all over.
The Original Mix intros with a cinematic themed sequence filled with sweeping sounds and a thick probing bass. Cool staggered hats come through alongside an otherworldly string which leads us into nice chunky kicks and warm melancholic vocals. The track goes deeper with the bassline providing the deep groove alongside those stunning vocals and a super tight drum arrangement. Another wonderfully deep progressive cut from Steve that will definitely grab a lot of attention.
Bonzai Progressive debut remixer Acud drops a super smooth prog house stomper complete with solid grooves and sophisticated vocals that blend perfectly with punchy kicks and crispy hats. The bassline probes right through the sound as wispy strings fade in and out alongside a cool, subtle synth arp. Rich pads light up the track and bring in a spacious atmospheric vibe that adds an intense flavour to the sound. Wonderfully crafted stuff that is a must have track in your collection.
The ever present Audio Noir is back on remix duty and delivers another top notch job as usual. His last outing was on remix duty for Matt Holliday’s Memories Of Yesterday as well as his artist album Now & Zen and yet again he provides the goods in style. The Audio Noir Rekonstruction intros with a deliciously cool pad sequence that ebbs and flows to the backdrop of a solid kick and a powerful bassline. Beautiful, bright arps sweep across the sound as subtle yet very effective vocal shots pop up. We settle in for a truly epic ride as this relentless groove just keeps on giving. The break takes us deeper as those pads and arps lull us deep into the groove before that lush kick and strong bass takes us back into full on mode. From here we get locked into a solid workout complete with a full on electric rock guitar that gives off a progressive rock Pink Floyd vibe as it marries up with that superb driving bass. Sublime.
