The Quest For Beauty – Original Mix boasts a long intro made up of some wonderfully crafted soundscapes that lead into a powerful driving trance groove full of melodies and euphoria. The cinematic qualities that we know and love are present making this another epic slice from the man himself and we’ve no doubt this one will be a firm favourite among many. First up on the remix we have the legendary Jam El Mar, an artist who championed the trance sound from the very early days alongside his friend and studio partner the late, great Mark Spoon as Jam & Spoon. For many years this guy has brought his super-charged sets to countless festivals and parties across Europe, as well as producing some of the most memorable tracks ever to be created (Stella, Follow Me, Odyssey To Anyoona, Tripomatic Fairytales 2001 and 2002 anyone?) We’re delighted to have him on board at Bonzai Progressive and hope to see more in the future. Here he delivers a solid, deep and moody progressive groove full of lush tones and a pounding, driving beat. The break features a sublime vocal sequence that fits the sound perfectly before we get back into full on mode for the duration. Up next is Airwave’s own Fuel Terrace Remix which is inspired by the Beach Bar at Fuel in Amsterdam. This time we go full on driving progressive with a chugging bassline and some tasty synths, strings and pads. An underlying acid line moves the sound beautifully while the super sweet melodies draw you in.

Get this one in the bag, you will not be disappointed!

ALEX BRADBURY – SPEKTRUM EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

UK DJ and producer Alex Bradbury marks his Piston debut with the fantastic three track Spektrum EP. Alex plies his trade at various venues in the UK where he takes to the decks alongside fellow DJ’s Josh Taylor and Liam Nuttall. Alex and Josh have hosted some serious parties under their Casa MCR event planning service and in October this year you can catch all three at their latest Manchester based venture where only the finest quality tunes will be on offer. We’re delighted to have this guy on board and we hope to see more from him in the future.

Spektrum dishes out a deep tech house vibe with lush pads and a solid thumping kick drum keeping the pace. Those pads work their magic, mesmerizing us with their warm tones against a backdrop of distant voices. A deep, thick bass pulsates through the track delivering a solid groove while shuffling percussions stack up to bring a cool rhythmic feel. Top notch tunage not to be missed.

Chicago intros with a muted kick that soon gets beefed up with a full on thump while bright crispy hi hats slice through the lower end. A deep teasing sub bass eases its way in before getting unleashed and rattling the bass bins with its powerful sub. The rhythm section is boosted by some tight drums and percussions that will surely get the floors moving. Cool vocals ring out and take you right to the heart of the Chicago sound while surreal synth pads swirl overhead. A real deep and pumping slice of tech house to get any party started.

Underground Is Bangin’ takes the tech house sound to the next level with a contemporary vibe stacked up against a cool classic groove. The tempo rises on this one and turns into a pacey number that the discerning clubber will love. A real cool feature is the urban narrative that runs through the track, this keeps things raw and on point and will no doubt keep any mix interesting. This one goes deep with a solid tech house groove complete with pumping beats and shuffling hats. Superb stuff, a definite must have.

ALFREDO MENA – GIVE ME MORE EP (BONZAI BASIKS)

Venezuelan DJ and producer Alfredo Mena is back with more tasty tech house treats, this time around he delivers the superb three track Give Me More EP. It’s been over a year since we last had a taste of this guys quality vibes, back in April 2015 he gave us Do You Remember which was very well received indeed.

Give Me More settles into a hypnotic groove right from the off thanks to some fantastic kick drums and intricate percussion patterns. A deep churning bass fills up the low end while those drum patterns intensify. An acid laced single note weaves through the sound as diva fuelled vocals ring out. The synth line goes through various changes adding some very cool textures to the sound which add to the tech house flavour beautifully. A rip roaring tech house slice that will definitely be a welcome addition in any set.

My Urban Sounds intros with a nice chunky kick drum and a plucky offset bass as crispy hi hats fade in. The bass grows in stature and is beefed up to a solid low end sub that emits a lot of power into the groove. Sweeping pads and FX fill the spectrum as a deep vocal pops up to bring an urban flavour to the sound. Warping synths come through adding some spice to the groove only to make way for some very cool retro style sounds. A deep groover here that is not to be missed.

Time To Get heads straight for the floor with its solid kick and hat combi which is backed up with a deep probing bass. The shuffling percussions soon get the rhythm into full swing as the bass intensifies and transforms into a full on in your face monster. Cool vocals litter the sound, deep spoken word and tribalistic singing work very well in contrast. Sharp plucky synths go through some expert tweaking resulting in a surreal experience that blends perfectly in the groove. Another fine slice from Alfredo that will not disappoint.

DOFAMINE – FOR MY LOVE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The impressive Dofamine returns to Bonzai Progressive with another serving of top notch progressive beats. For My Love is topped off with three stand out remixes from Blufeld, Audio Noir and Jakhira and is a definite must have track for your progressive house arsenal.

Swirling pads and subtle percussions provide the intro on the Original Mix creating a rich atmospheric vibe. Chunky kick drums come through and take over delivering a nice solid warm punch. You feel yourself drawn to the groove as those pads get stuck in your head while a superb deep bassline bubbles up from the depths. A calming melody descends on the sound as that probing bass cuts through the mids and high frequencies. A track with many sides, this one breeds intensity and serenity all in one epic take, brilliant stuff.

Blufeld turns up for remix duty with his Intoxicating Remix, and once again we are blown away with his sound. Blufeld’s craftsmanship in making music is second to none, he calls on years of experience in electronic music and is able to turn his hand to many styles. Always a pleasure to have his work drop into the office. The remix opens with a pulsing percussion and sublime pad before a monster kick drum crashes in to dominate and drive the track on its progressive course. As the pads create beautiful melodies a fantastic energy driven bassline weaves its way through the sound creating a wonderfully contrasted sound with hints of trance. The break throws up a stunning breaks sequence against a wall of perfectly tweaked sounds before we’re slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Audio Noir returns on remix duties with Another Audio Noir Trip. One of the hardest working artists around, this guy puts his heart and soul into all he produces. Over the last number of years he has become synonymous with mashing many genres and styles of music into well polished progressive constructions. On top of this he delves into breaks and wonderful atmospheric sounds. Great to have him on board as always. This Trip begins with a punchy kick drum and a nice reverbed snare while cool percussions start to form up into a steady rhythmic flow. Dark synth chords come into play and set the mood alongside surreal pads. The chords and pads generate a brilliant intense atmosphere charged with expertly crafted melodies as a deep probing bass hypnotizes throughout sitting perfectly within the groove. Mesmeric vocals ring out and add a beautiful colourful texture to the sound. Yet again we’re treated to some simply awesome sounds from Audio Noir, enjoy this trip.

Jakhira is a popular name around the scene and this is down to the pure quality of his productions and the fact that he’s a nice guy also, but mainly for his outstanding contribution to progressive in general. His productions regularly feature in many sets and have been peaking on charts at top download portals all over the net. Here he delivers his Unconditional Mix and proves once more just what a top notch artist he is. The remix intros with a nice chunky kick and crispy hi hat combo before being joined by some very cool percussions and a warming pad that creates a deep and smooth groove. A meandering bassline enters the arrangement and gives off a wonderfully smooth vibe that takes us deeper into the groove. Darker progressive house elements come through that grab a hold of your imagination, on the break you find yourself totally hooked on the melodies and allow yourself to be lost in the sound. A beautifully serene and captivating slice, perfect for late night and early morning beach parties.

AUDIOSTORM – UNDERGROUND CULTURE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

AudioStorm aka Ognjen Vukovic returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Underground Culture and brings along three top notch remixes from Nico Parisi, Owersound and Experimental Feelings for the ride. We last saw AudiStorm back towards the end of 2015 with his debut album First Step which gained a great deal of support from many quarters. Since then he has appeared on various compilations including the mega Bonzai & Friends 500 Remixes.

The Original Mix takes us on a sublime journey, deep into the melodic side of progressive house complete with a deep lush groove that just wraps itself around you. On the low end we’re treated to a wonderfully robust bassline that meanders through the sound effortlessly while on the mid range we’re faced with some beautiful melodic sequences in the form of rich strings and cascading arps. Keeping the track bound together we have tight beats that offer up a solid flowing rhythm creating that brilliant lush groove. Awesome stuff once more from this guy, a definite must have.

Nico Parisi is up first on the remix and once more he holds nothing back on the quality front. Nico’s last outing was in June 2016 with the superb Children Of Africa which definitely turned a few heads with a lot of attention, a feature on Beatport among others. Also in June Nico played at one of the best Summer festivals Europe, namely Legacy Festival. He made his third appearance there this year and is a testament to his dedication to playing out in front of crowds. On the remix here Nico employs his own special brand of progressive house, one that encompasses all manners of feelings and styles. The track intros with a solid thumping kick drum alongside a crispy hi hat giving off a classic vibe. A deep droning bassline joins in and becomes the star of the show as it draws us into its powerful grip. Cool melodies float through the sound and are delivered by organic synth arps adding fantastic colourful textures. This one is a beast of a tune that will rock any floor, anywhere.

One of Europe’s freshest and newest producers on the block, Arthur Minnahmetov aka Owersound debuts on Bonzai Progressive with a divine remix that will most definitely rock your progressive world and more. This exciting Russian DJ and producer is already making his mark on the scene with releases on various labels and gigs at top venues. DJing was his priority until he discovered a knack for writing his own music, and in 2007 he started to learn everything he could about this and he focused on deep house, tech house and techno. Nowadays he is into progressive house and this remix will tell you all you need to know about that. The track intros with a brash pumping kick drum and crispy hat combo alongside cool percussions and snappy snare rolls. The drum section delivers a fine flowing rhythm for the track to build on. Swirling pads stand out as strange voices come through creating a surreal atmosphere with a sharp bite. The bassline comes in to warm things up a bit and delivers a solid deep groove. In the background we get some very cool arp melodies that capture the imagination. Those melodies are further enhanced by the note changes on the bassline generating a wonderful contrast. Top notch sounds that are destined for many sets no doubt.

Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez aka Experimental Feelings is back and fresh from his last cut – Beautiful Eyes, in June 2016. As ever we are treated to a fine display of production from this guy. His originals stand out from the crowd for having a surreal atmospheric edge as well as tight arrangements. He is also well respected as remixer and he has turned around many tracks with his unique brand of progressive. On the remix here he does the original much justice by staying true to the original cut. A wonderfully melodic intro greets us as mesmeric swelling pads are joined by sweet high pitched notes that feed right into your soul. A nice well rounded kick drum comes through with just the right amount of punch and is soon joined by expertly crafted percussions. A deep and powerful bassline swells up from the depths creating a superb deep progressive groove. As the layers build the track goes deeper as that bass dominates, staying the course and only fading on the break to allow the pads and melodies to shine once more. A truly outstanding slice of prog that you do not want to miss.
