England based DJ and producer Zed White debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Crazy Diamonds which comes backed up with excellent remixes from Kiz Pattison. Zed has appeared on several top quality labels over the years and he recently debuted on our Green Martian imprint with a great remix on Maxim Vozisov’s Gravitation. A solid and diverse artist who does not disappoint.
The Original Mix intros with a full bag of goodies already in switched on mode. A nice chunky kick drum leads the way alongside bright crispy hi hats and sharp claps. A chugging bass beefs up the sound as swirling pads float overhead. A deeper more robust bassline comes through bringing lots of depth to the groove while subtle acid lines add cool textures. Synth arpeggios cascade through the sound effortlessly, keeping the track moving. The intensity builds as the track progresses with melodic and darker elements showing up. The break dishes out a magical display of subtle arps that blend together beautifully and taking us up to a thunderous climax and back to full on mode. Excellent stuff and a definite must have for sure.
Kiz Pattison debuts on Bonzai Progressive with two solid remixes that will definitely get the floors pumping. Based in Birmingham UK, he grew up listening to and being influenced by artists from the late 90’s right up to the present day. These influences can be heard in his unique crossover style productions. He originally got into music production through DJing when he found certain tracks didn’t quite have the right feel, so he began editing tracks to suit his style. He soon moved to original music production which was just a natural progression and now he boasts a rapidly expanding discography with releases on several labels. The first remix opens with a nice punchy kick drum with subtle percussions in the background alongside a distant bassline that teases with its funky moves. Stuttering arps melt into each other as a noise riser builds up and leaving behind a more prominent bassline that gets the ass shaking. A beautifully rich sound ensues filled with wistful pads, subtle melodies and an ever present acid underlay. A spellbinding groove that will not disappoint.
Kiz Pattison Just Acid Remix ramps up the progressive pressure right from the get go thanks to a wonderfully executed drum arrangement and that grooving bassline that just makes you wanna get up and move. As the title suggests we’re in for a real treat in the acid department, but before we get there Kiz teases us with filtered nuances of the 303 sound alongside sublime pads and cascading arpeggios. On the break things settle down before the magic happens, out of the depths a full on acid line emerges as the filters, resonance and envelopes are opened to reveal a scathing sequence of pure unadulterated classic sounding acid. A truly superb cut that will appeal to many, no doubt.
