Israeli DJ, producer Evi Orgatz marks his Bonzai Progressive debut with the fantastic Shamanica EP. Based on the South Side of Bee-Sheva City, Evi’s studio blasts out all kinds of good music covering several genres. After 6 years producing Psy Trance as Dottexm he decided to mellow his sound to a more techno sounding flow. Of course, we also get spoiled with his diversion into progressive house which, comes with the same quality he has always delivered in previous productions. Great to have him on board and we hope to see more from this guy in the future.
Shamanica wastes no time in getting down to a powerful groove right from the off, thanks to a strong kick and a prominent, driving bassline. Melodic arpeggios cascade through the track, opening up into a frenzied display and raiding the senses. In the distance, influential voices lift the groove, creating hair-raising moments as hypnotic notes stand out amongst the deeper elements. Very subtle changes in the sound have a lasting impact as the track ebbs and flows, taking us along for the ride. Fantastic effort and a must have no doubt.
What Is Addiction intros with a strong, fierce bass stab which sits just off the low end where a deeper, warmer bass resides. Solid kick drums lead a rolling percussion arrangement, setting a nice rhythmic flow in motion. A series of noisy arps fill in as otherworldly synth melody takes over the sound, captivating the mind. In the background a rising 303 style arp teases, taking us to the break where cool vocals come through alongside classic style, distorted phasing synths. An energetic, tough edged slice for the more full-on dancefloor, not to be missed.
