DJ and producer from Mauritius, Kush returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Night Owl which follows his last outing – Trigger. Kush was interested and passionate about music since his early childhood. He started to learn the basics of music using a keyboard at the age of 5. Growing up, he discovered the possibility of making music using computers and grabbed the opportunity to develop his skills and talents to produce electronic music. He was also part of a local rock band as a keyboardist. He is into many different genres of music and his electronic music inspirations and selections are rooted in groovy beats, heavy bass lines, emotive chords, dark synths, percussive, melodic and old school soundscapes.
Night Owl opens with a monster kick and bass combi that will get the bass bins doing overtime. Cool rhythmic percussions form up with a raspy hi hat at the core alongside snappy rim shots. The track goes deeper and deeper as a secondary bass comes through with its raw and powerful groove taking control. Gritty synths blend effortlessly into the sound creating a dynamically charged vibe. On the break we’re treated to some superb punchy stabs while a groovy chord begins to fade in. The beats return and we’re locked in once again to this raucous progressive tech fuelled stomper. A definite must have.
Sound Current intros with a punchy kick drum which is followed by some cool percussions that slowly builds into a solid rhythmic arrangement. Dark synth stabs come through alongside a deep probing bassline creating a wonderful progressive groove. At the midway point the track churns out some darker synths and surreal pads that takes us deeper into the progressive abyss. A beautifully arranged contemporary sound that will not disappoint.
