Bilboni aka Slovene musician Goran Bilbija debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the wonderful two tracker entitled Off Road EP. Goran’s early starts in the field were marked by attending and concluding a music school, where he learnt to play the accordion. As a teenager, his passion for music accelerated to the point where he would spend all his monthly pocket money on borrowing/buying new records. Growing up, he started tasting the club life. Drawn by the electronic sounds, he would always be the last to go home. At that point he was inspired by the early Euro sounds such as LA Style, as well as EuroDance, Culture Beat, 2 Unlimited and Captain Jack to name a few. As a professional sportsman (handball), Goran had to give up on his music dreams for a while, yet he never completely stopped his production. At the age of 20, he established a successful music duo 2 Alive and signed quite a few contracts with various record labels. After years of music production, Goran finally decided to dedicate his time fully to music, issuing his very own tracks. Inspired by world famous DJ’s, such as Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Joseph Capriati, Luciano, Julian Jeweil and others, he sees himself most in tech house vibes. Being fully committed to his fans, he is always open for new suggestions and critique. Convinced that self-awareness is the key to delivering quality, you can certainly expect no less than a technical perfection of mesmerizing beats.
The tech house flavour oozes out of Off Road making it a straight up dancefloor monster. Big punchy kick drums lead the way alongside a rhythmic percussion section before a shatteringly deep bass causes uproar that will give the bassbins a lot of work to do. Hypnotic, metallic hits draw you in as surreal arpeggios wash over the sound. A powerful track that will not disappoint.
My World intros with a cool crispy hi hat sequence that is soon joined by chunky kick drums that deliver flowing rhythms. The track breaks to reveal a dirty bass sound followed by stabbing chords that give off a cool retro vibe. The bassline proper hangs on the low end, conducting the sound effortlessly as sinister voices creep in. A real stomper of a track that is not to be missed.
