The ever present Van Czar is back at Bonzai Basiks with the sublime Chonis Guarras. Belgian DJ and producer Van remains one very busy guy as he juggles producing with DJing and running his own CZ record label. A truly inspirational artist, he never lets up on the quality front as witnessed on his last Basiks outing Fortuna Propitia. He continues to gain support from around the world and his unique brand of the deeper side of techno is a very much established sound for many. It’s always an exciting time when Van delivers his latest efforts so keep an eye and an ear out for more from him in 2017.
Chonis Guarras comes in three flavours and Van sets his sights on going deep, way deep into the techno abyss. The Original Mix boasts a pulsating bass and punchy kick drum alongside crispy hi hats generating a minimalistic groove that will get the booty’s shaking no doubt. Erotic moans fleet across the sound adding a sexy vibe while a dark hypnotic pads rises up from the depths. Beautifully balanced sounds combine and climax with a wall of noise before melting back into the groove for the duration. A top notch slice that will not disappoint.
The Acid Club Mix takes the core of the original and turns into a club monster complete with acid licks and a deep solid bassline that will keep the bass bins busy. Sensual erotic gasps litter the sound and add a sexy touch. The track goes deeper with lush rising pads that deliver and infectious groove throughout. The acid line slowly fades in and the track gets a burst of energy that translates effortlessly through sound and into your soul. Simply superb from Van that is not to be missed.
The Instrumental Mix strips out the female vocal leaving a deep, pumping techno fuelled slice in its wake that will be the perfect fodder for any late night set.
