CHRIS RAVEN – I KNOW YOU LOVE ME TOO – ALFONSO MUCHACHO REWORK FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Chris Raven’s 1998 smasher, I Know You Love Me Too, gets the remix treatment on our next 25 year celebrations release. The talented Alfonso Muchacho is the artist in the hot seat this time around and he delivers a sublime effort that compliments the original beautifully. This one marked Chris Raven’s debut on the scene and featured a superb, deep progressive groove alongside a sultry, melancholic vocal. Originally appearing in 1997, Bonzai Trance Progressive snapped up this hit a year later putting this special sound into a worldwide audience making it an instant classic. Remixes from Bruce Norris and Van Bellen sparked a decade’s long debate as to which was better, both stand out as greats in our opinion. Chris went on to release several other top notch cuts on BTP putting his work firmly within the realms of retro classics status. Alfonso Muchacho debuted on our Green Martian imprint with Despina back in July 2014 before delivering a fantastic remix on Mendexx’s Life Begins on Bonzai Progressive in November 2014. Since then he has went on to feature in various compilations as well as stepping up for gust mix duties on Bonzai Basik Beats. Alfonso learned his craft at underground parties across the UK and his remixes and productions were quickly supported by some of the biggest names in the scene. His ridiculously committed work ethic churns out quality results at every turn and will ensure that his tracks continue to fill the sets of the world’s biggest progressive DJs.

We’re teased with the captivating vocals that sit beautifully in the groove as a calming force against a solid, tough progressive workout. Tight beats and shuffling percussions ensure a flowing rhythm as a droning bass dominates the low end. Sharp synth hits deliver the original melody in a unique fashion that captivates and mesmerizes. A fitting tribute to a brilliant track that is not to be missed.

CORTEX THRILL – UTOPIA (COLONIZATION) (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

After a hugely successful return to Bonzai Progressive with Mitochondria in 2016, we welcome Cortex Thrill back in 2017 with the superb Utopia which features two top notch remixes from Thorin and Fabian Jakopetz. Regarded with high esteem in the music production world Cortex Thrill’s style and sound helped shape an entire scene back in the early nineties. Throughout the years the Cortex Thrill sound has moved effortlessly with the times, right up to today it brings a unique dynamic that reverberates beautifully, slotting into progressive sets with ease. The Cortex Thrill studio remains a hub of activity with lots of work being done not only for Bonzai but for Soul Access and for the Croatian electronic music scene in general. Lots more to come out of Croatia so stay tuned for more.

The Original Mix oozes a lush progressive vibe right from the off as thick and chunky kick drums lead the way alongside crispy hit hats and tight percussion patterns. A warping bassline comes through and we find ourselves locked on to the groove that just goes deeper and deeper. Mystifying strings litter the higher frequencies as a powerful synth lead dishes out its subtle melody. On the break we’re led into a wonderfully rich soundscape full of Eastern flavour and a fantastic spoken vocal before those chunky beats come back for more. Another top notch slice from Cortex Thrill that is not to be missed.

Fresh off the back of his superb remix for Iga Dep’s Indigo, Thorin is up first on the remix here and once again he does not disappoint. You know you’re in for a serious progressive experience when this guy’s name is mentioned. Over the last number of years he has churned out many top quality originals and remixes for Bonzai Progressive and beyond with each serving up the goods in style. On the remix here Thorin goes into the progressive abyss with a solid drum section leading the way and keeping the rhythm flowing nicely. Powerful sub level basses provide a strong platform for the track to traverse as striking synth notes add texture to the sound. Tight percussions etch out intricate patterns giving the groove a cool dynamic which is complimented by the spoken vocals. Superb stuff once again from this guy, a must have no doubt.

Fabian Jakopetz is back at the helm on remix duties for Cortex Thrill – he also delivered a fantastic remix on Mitochondria, and we’ve no doubt that this one will follow suit. No stranger to Bonzai, we always get excited to hear Fabians latest offering and, thankfully, over the years there have been plenty. On this remix Fabian goes straight for the floors with a strong charge from punchy kick drums and a tight rhythmic percussion arrangement. Stuttering basses add a pacey element to the track that will definitely keep the floors moving. The synth work is outstanding and works effortlessly alongside a myriad of FX and the vocal. If you’re after a solid and powerful progressive groover for the tougher sets, then this is the one for you, not to be missed.

PLATUNOFF & BLUFELD – TRUA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

After the success of their first collaboration – Tiefe Gedanken – back in May 2015, Platunoff and Blufeld get together once more on the superb Trua which comes backed up with two quality mixes from Crocy and Kush.

The Original Mix sets us on a wonderfully lush progressive journey right from the off as chunky kicks and cool shuffling hats get the rhythm flowing. Scathing synths and FX sweep across the sound creating a rich cosmic vibe. We are teased by the lead synth as it makes fleeting appearances alongside rising arpeggios. On the break we get that lead synth in all its glory with its striking resonance and melodic elements. All through the track a deep bubbling bassline keeps the groove firmly rooted making this a definite must have.

The ever impressive Crocy notches up yet another one of his stunning remixes for our aural pleasure and, as expected, he does not disappoint in the least. The remix intros with a nice pounding kick drum and crispy hi hats as slapped drums create sporadic rhythmic patterns. A wonderfully warm and lush bassline washes over the sound as synths begin to fade in. On the break the track delivers a beautifully textured landscape with broken beats and subtle melodies before we return to full on mode for the duration. A brilliant slice of progressive house that is not to be missed.

Kush returns with his special brand of progressive vibes to deliver a solid remix that will definitely grab a lot of attention. This one goes deep into the progressive abyss with an array of sub level basses and slicing rhythmic percussions. Thumping kick drums lead the way as those sharp hi hats cut through the low frequencies. The bassline is outstanding here, it lurks menacingly on the bottom end giving the bassbins a bit of work to do while in the mid range we find a mesmeric pad and hypnotic synths. The break is a surreal moment of bliss made up of fantastic striking synths which keeps the deepness of the groove intact before that bassline raises its head once more. A monster of a tune that will not disappoint.

This is a truly exciting venture that will break through boundaries as it explores new ways of creating electronic music. We are proud to present this to the world and have no doubt it will attract a lot of interest. Enjoy!

First up we have the Main Mix of Give Me Your Love which carries a wonderful hybrid sound filled with sharp, piercing stabs and a superb rhythmic flow. The track intros with a punchy kick drum and shuffling hat combi that takes us to a powerful driving bassline that will draw you onto the floors with its infectious groove. Cascading arpeggios create delicate melodies as Dammy’s distinct vocal has a captivating narrative filled with beautiful harmonies, delivered in a perfectly timed and executed manner. The track flows effortlessly with a fantastic club vibe that will most definitely grab a lot of attention.

Next we have the Main Mix of Gone which goes down a much deeper road than its sibling on this release. A deep droning bass tone dominates as chunky kick drums and subtle hi hats are matched with cool metallic percussion. The drum track is boosted with shuffling hats and various other percussions that give a nice flowing rhythm. A superb synth line develops and is manipulated with expert precision and sublime modulation that gives the track a very distinct vibe. This one goes into the progressive abyss and takes us along for the ride willingly making this a must have track for those late night sessions.

The Instrumental Mix of Give Me Your Love delivers the same solid groove of the Main Mix without the vocal giving jocks plenty of scope to play around with.

EXPERIMENTAL FEELINGS featuring GIZELLA – CAN WE TRY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

After a solid remix on Pilots Of The Millennium back in October 2016 we welcome the return of Experimental Feelings with the sublime Can We Try which features a stunning vocal from Gizella. Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez is the man behind this brilliant project and with every release he takes us into progressive realms we’ve never been to before. His last full release was over on our Green Martian imprint with Paradise Sound which became a go to track for many on the scene and stands as a testament to the talent he has to offer.

With a few tracks under her belt she creates a unique character in each track that brings it to life. The perfect accompaniment to this one and no doubt the world will be seeing much more from this very talented artist.

The Original Mix delivers a solid progressive vibe with a nice chunky kick at the forefront accompanied by bright open hats and a deep subby bassline that moves through the low end beautifully. A beautifully sung vocal from Gizella adds depth and character with a melancholic edge that harmonises effortlessly with the subtle melodies of the track. Deep, thoughtful and contemplative, just the tonic for any late night session.

Gai Barone is up first on remix duties with his In Depth Remix and this guy really needs no introduction due to his peerless stance within the production community. His last outing for Bonzai was a superb re-working of the anthemic Universal Nation which was released as part of our 25th year celebrations and gained instant support from many around the world. On the DJ front Gai is working with top jocks all over the globe, including Solarstone and Giuseppe Ottaviani. Gai brings his range of skills to the remix and delivers another beautifully arranged slice filled with deep seated grooves and subtle melodies. He takes us on one of his journeys into the depths of the progressive sound with this remix. A tight drum arrangement provides a solid platform to get us there as chunky kick drums lead an array of intricate percussion patterns. An abyss level bassline bubbles up and locks us into the groove as wistful melodies are complimented by Gizella’s mesmeric vocal. A superb effort once more that is not to be missed.

Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff returns to BP with a fantastic remix which comes after his last effort here back in September 2016 with Primavera. This guy always brings an extra sprinkle of spice to the proceedings. He’s worked alongside Blufeld and features regularly in our compilations. Here he delivers another sublime effort filled with deep rooted basses and tight drum patterns. The kick drum delivers a solid punch and is offset by cool hi hats and hypnotic percussions. The bassline sits menacingly on the low end, dominating the groove as swirling pads and Gizella’s surreal vocal come through. The subtlest of melody peeks out of the depths and combines with the vocal beautifully. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.
