Nico solidifies his return after a short break as he delivers the deep progressive grooves of his two tracker Forty Jokers. Fresh off the back of his remix on Dark Soul Project & Mathov featuring Fe Malefiz’s We Are Not Alone, we are certain that we will be seeing a lot more from this guy. He remains a very popular figure around the Bonzai office and he always pushes himself to come up with only the best quality work. As the summer approaches you will be seeing Nico pop up at some of the many festivals that will be happening across Belgium and beyond. Stay tuned for more because there is still a long way to go in 2015.
Forty Jokers intros with a nice big chunky kick that packs a big punch alongside a hypnotic synth line and is soon joined by a meandering bass that locks the groove into its progressive flow. Nico probes right into the deeper side of prog as that synth line mesmerises the senses. On the break it dominates as a subtle melodic sequence is introduced before we get thrust right back into the main groove. A real mover here that will no doubt get the floors rocking.
Settimana sets off with a cool punchy kick and a steady building drum arrangement to the backdrop of an echoing synth note. A driving bassline bubbles up from the depths and takes us right into the heart of a deep prog groove. The track builds and builds and we find ourselves lost in the sound as rich strings create an intense vibe. On the break the track delves into a sublime sequence of sweeping synths before rising back into the main groove for the duration. A wonderfully epic ride into a top notch solid groove from Nico that is not to be missed.
