Our next Bonzai Basiks release comes from Majed and Van Czar with their three tracker, In Vino EP. Van is such a consistently great and talented artist as his productions will testify, recently his Black Diamond EP hit the ground running and was well received among many. It’s always an exciting time when Van’s latest offering hits the office and this is no exception. Van is joined by DJ and producer Majed who is making his debut appearance on Basiks. Majed has been around the scene for a long time having started out perfecting his art at just 12 years old. He has much respect in the electronic music world and has been a regular jock at many top events. In 2011 he started his own label, LiEcurie Electro where he could bring together like minded producers he had already been working with. With a ton of releases across various labels you can rest assured you will see much more from this guy.
In Vino intros with a hollowed kick and shuffling percussions as a spoken vocal narrates. The track is amped up by a surging deep bass that dominates the sound as the kicks transform into nice chunky hits. The vocal returns on each break as various synths and FX merge to create a very cool dynamic on the track. Straight into the heart of techno this is a definite must for those deep sets.
The Original Mix of Euro3 is up next with its cool percussive intro that transforms into a throbbing techno groove filled with punchy kicks and a sublime deep bass. The drum arrangements weave out a rhythmic pattern to the backdrop of some awesome rising and falling FX creating wonderful textures right through the sound. Top notch stuff that will work well in experimental sets for sure.
Van delivers his Revolution Remix of Euro3, a truly deep rooted techno experience from start to finish. Big chunky kicks fill the intro as the percussion elements build a solid rhythmic platform. The bass comes from the depths as it resonates through shuddering the bins into submission. Surreal synths reveal a sinister theme to the track and on the break a hypnotic vocal sample joins in before we are thrust back into the main groove. Stunning cut yet again from Van and not to be missed.
