It’s been over a year since we last saw Frangellico at Bonzai, now he is back with his superb Floating EP. Last time around we got a dosing of his progressive flavours on Manu Riga’s The Darkness Within which performed very well indeed. Since then he has seen his remixes appear on various compilations from the Bonzai stable as well as releases on various labels.
Floating intros with a nice and smooth percussion arrangement as a silky pad and soothing melody fade through. Punchy kicks soon follow and the journey begins into progressive utopia. A solid bassline walks through the track beautifully and gets the grooves flowing effortlessly. Melodic layers begin to shine as you get lost in the sound and on the break these melodies evolve with striking synths and wistful pads. Stunning display of progressive house that will be a feature among many no doubt.
Only For Now sets off in classic chunky kick and crispy hats fashion that creates a solid platform for the track. A deep throbbing sub bass comes through and takes over the sound as sweeping pads lurk in the background. Percussions begin to layer up giving off a smooth rhythmic flow taking us up to the main bass that packs a huge punch. Silky smooth plucks ooze sweet melodies which give cool contrasts and add an almost dreamy vibe. Another strong progressive house stomper that is sure to delight many.
