Samer Tinoco returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two track EP titled, Cairo. It’s been a while since he was last here, his last outing – Damanhur, was well received and no doubt this latest effort will follow suit. For Samer music is just a hobby, a form of personal expression. With almost 10 years’ experience as a producer, his style is based on the underground electronic scene in genres such as Techno and Progressive House, with tendencies to dark and progressive sounds. He has seen releases on labels such as Society Music Recordings (Italy) and Spring Tube (Latvia), reaching the top 5 on the label chart in Beatport, sharing with artists such as Hollen, Diction, Anthony Mea, Donatello, and Solid Stone. Always great to have him here at BP.
Cairo gets the EP moving with a beautifully textured intro that leads us to a solid kick drum with accompanying rhythmic percussions. A tense groove builds and builds, with a primed bassline ready to dominate. An enchanting voice send shivers down the spine, delivering a dreamy and mesmerizing Arab vibe. Top-notch stuff, not to be missed. Pangea concludes the release, sending a commanding groove straight to the floor. Tight drums and slicing hats develop a smooth flowing rhythm as chugging basses drive the groove. Delicate melodic notes combine in a myriad of arpeggios, creating a trippy sequence and making this an absolute must have.
