The Original Mix intros with a smooth, swaying beat which is laced with tribal influences. Various percussions stack up, creating an Afro fusion kinda groove. A strong, pulsing bass takes control of the groove as the rhythm intensifies. The drums and percussions play a massive role in building the track, along with subtle voices and cosmic synths that add contrast. The break feeds us with a swelling sequence that culminates in a fiery climax before the beats return for the duration. A definite must have that will not disappoint.
Fellow Maltese countryman and DJ, producer colleague Paul Hamilton, returns to Bonzai with a solid remix. This one follows the equally superb remix for Mendexx’s Alcazar as well a guest appearance on our Bonzai Basik Beats Radioshow. With over 20 years’ experience, this multi award winning artist does not disappoint with his unique style. His career took him all around the world playing at top clubs alongside top jocks and his studio works have been snapped up by many labels. Paul remains a firm favourite and boasts a solid rep within the scene. Here, he takes us on a trippy trek through deep progressive house. An intense workout, the track gathers momentum right from the off as tight beats and rhythmic percussions get us moving. A deep, warming bass shores up the low end as a rolling bassline sits overhead. The track ebbs and flows with searing synths rising and pitching, creating a frenzied vibe, which makes this on the perfect fodder for the stronger sets.
