Bonzai Progressive goes techno with a solid cut from debutant Semodi titled, Keep On Shining, which comes backed up with three outstanding remixes. Based in Berlin and also known as Knicklicht, Semodi delivers a top-notch joint, which is something he’s been renowned for over the last few years. With releases on top labels since 2019, his sounds have made their way into many sets, enriching the journey of the listener with deep and melodic fusions. It’s great to have him here and hopefully we’ll be seeing more from him in the future.
The Original Mix opens the release with a smooth, rhythmic vibe. Layered basses drive the groove as gritty techno sweeps wash over alongside metallic percussions. Melodic elements creep into the groove, opening up the spectrum to create a wide, vivacious sound. Karim S returns to Bonzai on remix duties opening his interpretation with a thumping, arena style kick and crispy hi hat combo. The vocal adds a richness to the sound as the dystopian arpeggio fades in. A solid techno joint that does not disappoint. 3runo Kaufmann aka F-Act is back at Bonzai with a top-notch remix, stepping out of his more traditional proggy persona to deliver a thriving, energetic techno slice. Strong beats lead as a deep rolling bass beefs up the groove. Hypnotically charged arps and sinister sounds complete the construction, locking us in for the duration. We welcome Matt Black back to BP who rounds out the release with a tight remix. Punchy kicks and slicing hi hats get us moving as dark FX and waves of rhythmic percussions fade up. A powerful bassline takes control of the groove. Otherworldly synths come through to complete the interpretation making this an absolute must have.
