Athens based artists Erikos A and Greg S make up All Species and here they debut on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime progressive breaks of Equinox. Erikos and Greg got into music from a very young age, in the nineties they became hooked on electronic music enjoying various genres like downtempo, chill out and all manner of electronic dance rhythms. They have created their own style that combines nostalgic spacey sounds with live performance acoustic instruments. In 2005 they started to make music together while enjoying the benefits of their friendship and sharing their creativity to find new ways of creating sounds.
Equinox gets us on the move with a fantastic pacey breakbeat that carries a subtle drum n bass kinda groove. The tight drum patterns deliver the goodness and will certainly get feet on the floors with their solid rhythms. The track also generates a beautifully musical vibe with a myriad of synths and effects garnering a rich tapestry of sound with a progressive edge. A wonderful slice here that will be a welcome addition to any collection.
Planet Groove is an epic trek into progressive breaks with a wonderfully diverse arrangement of sounds that captivate the mind. The intro boasts some very nice synths that stay the course before being joined by fantastic beats that carry a fine flowing rhythm. Slick percussions and pumping breakbeats is where it's at here and combined with progressive elements makes for some very interesting patterns. At the midway point the track goes four to the floor with a punchy kick drum taking the lead alongside a superb warm bassline and sublime synths and FX. An outstanding hybrid track that will generate a lot of interest no doubt.
Time Machine takes us deep into the groove with a wonderful composition made up of psychedelic arps and expertly crafted FX that add beautiful textures to the sound. At its heart we find a throbbing bass that offers a warming sensation as it transcends through the sound. The drum section is simply stunning, it delivers a solid groove with intricate patterns made up of shuffling hats and a driving kick drum that blend perfectly into a fine arrangement. Another superbly constructed slice from this talented duo that will certainly not go amiss.
