Koschk returns to Bonzai Progressive with True Romance which is backed up by two quality remixes from Nico Parisi and Experimental Feelings. This one is the latest in a string of quality releases for us over the last few years with the latest effort As Clear As Dream performing very well indeed. Lebanese DJ and producer Vince Aoun started his online radio show Catalepsy in 2010, which ran for 5 years. Over those years, he grabbed the attention of many top jocks like Paul Van Dyk, Judge Jules, and Paul Oakenfold and his tracks appeared on many labels around the globe, until Cygnus got a notable release on PVD’s Vandit Records. After several remixes and appearances on our compilations, he began to deliver top notch original works which always grab a lot of attention.
The Original Mix is an outstanding slice of progressive house, with a deep and moody vibe that captivates the mind. Deep basses and mesmerizing strings draw you into the sound where a truly infectious vocal takes control, delivering an intriguing narrative. An absolute must have track for any set, no doubt.
Nico Parisi is up first on remix duties and his name remains synonymous with quality electronic music. After a string of top tracks, he quietened down on the production front for a spell before returning on remix duties for Crocy’s Passion before unleashing his skills once again on the remix for Jacob Singer’s Urantia. He has appeared at many festivals including Bonzai Retro, Legacy Festival, Tomorrowland, Decibel, Sunset Festival and a host of other notable events. He boasts a hugely impressive catalogue with support coming in from top jocks from around the world. On the remix here, Nico delivers a stunning melodic techno kinda vibe thanks to some intricate LFO action. Chunky beats lead the way while rhythmic percussions get the feet shuffling. In the background, mesmerizing voices and an air of tension builds and builds to a climax on the break making this one a definite must have.
Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez aka Experimental Feelings churns out another quality remix and this one follows his last effort Platonic Love featuring Connie Di Maria. Toni’s productions regularly feature in many sets from DJ’s around the world and it’s no surprise given his extensive back catalogue that spans many labels. A slew of top cuts have graced several labels including our own Green Martian imprint which is testament to the diversity this talented artist possesses. The remix dishes out the progressive house vibes aplenty with a solid drum section taking point alongside a rumbling bassline. Slicing hats cut through the low frequencies as delicate plucks fade through. The vocal is used beautifully, creating a deep and moody groove. The contrasts are striking, deep basses and melodic pads combine for a truly mesmerizing sequence making this a track that will not disappoint.
