Roman Kandel debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb two track slice entitled Mac. Roman is an underground artist who loves to make smooth, deep and captivating sounds. He loves to spend his time in the studio creating and trying new music and rhythms. In 2016 he released his first track Namen, which was championed by many jocks including Gai Barone among others. Much more to come from this guy, well worth keeping an eye on.
Mac intros with a real deep flavour made up of a tonal percussion section and organic FX that create a surreal atmosphere. Chunky kick drums soon follow alongside crispy hi hats setting the track firmly on course to rock the floors. Melancholic stabs keep the groove going deeper as subtle progressive elements creep in. A short break throws up a spoken vocal that adds to the mystique of the track making it an interesting slice. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.
Cognitive Brain Reserve sets off with a tight and intricate percussion pattern made up with a myriad of sounds. The percussions deliver a real sense of deep progressive which is enhanced by the introduction of deep droning basses that fade in alongside intense pads. Those floor shuddering basses dominate the groove and change notes in tandem with synths and pads to create a sublime prog experience. Mesmerizing melodic arpeggios ease into the sound taking the track to the next level making this an absolute must have for any late night session.
