German DJ and producer Manuel Palmitesta marks his full release debut on Bonzai Progressive with the superb two tracker Rush Hour EP. Over the last few years we have seen this guy crop up on several releases where he delivered top notch remixes. Ecco’s Switch, A.M.X’s Secret Lover and Tech Dealer’s Plastic Vibes are just some of the releases he’s contributed to. We’ve also seen him appear on Bonzai Basik Beats radio show. He has also seen releases on many labels over the last few years and he always gains lots of support. We’re delighted to see him back with his own cut and we’ve no doubt this one will turn a few heads.
Rush Hour is a solid tech house driven minimalistic slice that delivers a superb four to the floor groove. Pumping kick drums lead the way as a beautifully arranged percussions arrangement keeps the rhythm moving. The minimal approach speaks volumes as we’re drawn into the hypnotic nature of the track thanks to some cool FX and an eerie vox sound. Excellent stuff you do not want to miss.
Corruption takes us deep into the tech house abyss with a bassy thumper that will certainly get the bootys shakin. The track is powered by some chunky kick drums and a cacophony of bright and noisy hats and cymbals. On the low end we’re treated to a pulsating bassline that becomes the soul of the groove. Tribal style percussions mesmerize as the bass transforms and intensifies the groove. Definitely a track not to be missed.
