Sam Laxton debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two tracker, No Need To Pretend. Since his emergence in 2012 this guy has attracted quite a lot of attention. His tracks have gained support from the likes of Paul Van Dyk and Solarstone among others. He already boasts an impressive release count on labels such as Philosophy Recordings, Starblocks Music and Black Hole Recordings to name just a few. Great to have this guy on board at BP with his brand of progressive that will appeal to many no doubt.

No Need To Pretend goes straight into a full on rip roaring groove right from the off. Nice punchy kicks are joined by a tight percussion arrangement that delivers a solid rhythmic flow to the sound. A pulsating bassline drives the track alongside some retro styled chord stabs and takes us up to the break where we are met with sharp plucks and a deep droning bass. With a hint of psy creeping in to the sound the break climaxes and we are thrust back into the melodic techno workout. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Once Upon A Time dishes out a tight progressive groove as punchy kicks and crispy hats join forces alongside a fantastic pitching bassline that is the main driving force on the track. Tight percussions do a fine job and keep the rhythm flowing as cool FX go off in the background. On the break we are treated to some real nice plucky melodies that lock us in for the ride before we get slammed back into the main track for the duration. A definite must have track on this fine debut from Sam.
