Nico Parisi and Franco La Cara join forces once again with the superb Guardian Angel which comprises seven tracks covering progressive house and melodic techno. Both Nico and Franco have been stalwarts for Bonzai Progressive over the years, delivering quality cuts on solo and collaboration projects. It’s safe to say we always get excited when they get into the studio together and we’ve no doubt the partnership will continue for many years.

Guardian Angel is a sublime, mini-album concept featuring seven perfectly balanced tracks. The release opens with the aptly titled, One, which eases us into a smooth melodic techno groove bedecked with dark, moody tones and contrasting euphoric sequences. Solar is up next, taking us straight into a powerful proggy groove right from the get go. Chunky beats, sharp hats and striking plucky basses drive this one, alongside beautifully crafted melodic patterns. Farfalla is next and sticks with the progressive vibes, offering up a smoother, more defined and rich sound that captivates from start to finish. Buoyant beats and pulsing basses combine to deliver a fluid groove which is topped off with colourfully modulated synths. At the midway point, we find the tougher edged melodic techno grooves of Waves. A super tight construction filled with exotic percussions and punchy kicks which lay the foundation for a driving bassline and mesmerizing arpeggio melody. Gritty synths add strength and texture, making this one a definite floor mover. Staying on the melodic techno tip, Pressure heralds in another rock-solid groove destined to work the floors. A more atmospheric number, thanks to bright synth plucks and converging melodies, the track is powered by a thick, infectious bassline and timely beats that keep things moving nicely. Dynamic is next, continuing that driving theme with a powerful bassline which is prominent from the off. Punchy beats and manicured percussions set the rhythm loose as mesmerizing arpeggios cascade through the sound. Expertly crafted FX enhance the sound while distinctive melodic techno synths take over. Health concludes the release, taking us back to progressive mode for the finale. Carving out a surreal, chunky groove, the track is adorned with wonderment and intrigue. A deep, rumbling bassline dominated as percolating synth lines blend effortlessly with exotic percussions and punchy beats. On the break, the groove evokes an emotional response with poignant melodics and brighter tones. The perfect ending to a fine slice of work by Nico and Franco.
