New Yorker Corey Biggs is doing the rounds on various labels under the Bonzai umbrella. This time out his Rockstar alias delivers the superb The White Hole which comes with three top notch remixes. Previously Corey showed up on our Progrez imprint, back at the end of 2015 he gave us the superb Nature Never Sleeps before appearing on our Club Traxx Dark & Deep 3 compilation at the turn of this year. He also stepped up for remix duties on A.R.E.S featuring Anna Julia – Sparks Will Fly on Bonzai Progressive in early 2016 and no doubt he’ll be popping up somewhere else soon. His approach to music and techno in general is refreshing and it’s always a pleasure to get his stuff in the inbox.
On the Original Mix we get planted right into a smooth deep house groove that sounds super fresh with an array of percussions setting up a flowing rhythm alongside a swaying pad. A funky ass bassline comes in that you know will set the booty’s shakin towards the floor while nice chunky kicks deliver an energized 4×4 beat. A wonderfully constructed slice of house that you will not want to miss.
