Traveltech aka Hungarian DJ and producer Balint Bendeguz Bakos debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the impressive Eiffel Tower. He has been a music lover since childhood and in 1999 he started to create his own sounds using the latest software. Soon after he started to DJ in various clubs using only vinyl as his medium which resulted in a better connection to music in general. His first releases came between 2005 and 2007 before putting music on hold for a period of time so he could settle in a new home. In 2012 he was back with renewed purpose and a desire to have his work released on vinyl. Today he boasts a hugely impressive back catalogue with releases on the labels such as Dash Deep Records, System Recordings and Debuger to name just a few. Great to have him on board and we hope to see more from this guy in the future.
Eiffel Tower intros with a sombre sounding deep groove that is made up of big chunky kicks and a rumbling low end bass. Various FX create cool textures in the sound as bright crispy hats come through to get the rhythm moving. A hypnotic synth note hooks you in to the sound as rich melodic pads rise to the surface. The break unleashes a myriad of colourful sounds resulting in a trippy experience that continues for the duration. A perfect blend of tech meeting progressive here that is most definitely not to be missed.
Journey gets into a solid deep progressive groove right from the off as chunky kick drums deliver a solid thump alongside cool stuttering percussions. A deep droning bassline moves menacingly through the track taking us lower into the abyss while cosmic synths float across the spectrum. A subtle, raw melody begins to flourish in the sound and we soon find ourselves swept away by the ubiquitous groove. On the break we are treated to some very cool sequences that play on the simple synths and that shuddering bassline making this one for the late night sessions.
