PUSH – UNIVERSAL NATION (GAI BARONE REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

On the remix Gai takes us on a sublime journey with his alternative take on this classic. Right from the off we find ourselves drawn in as surreal, swirling pads and FX create a scattered texture. Chunky kick drums soon follow and a super tight drum arrangement keeps the rhythm flowing. Vocals from the original masterpiece are on display as well as extended vocal snippets from the original source. In comes that classic melody that fades into existence to the backdrop of a solid, driving bassline that captivates the mind. The break is simply sublime as Gai takes the tempo down before rising back into full on mode. An absolute stomping remix that will definitely become a firm favourite among many.

Push – Universal Nation (Gai Barone Remix) is charted by Beatport in this month’s Must Hear Trance chart and also included in the Miami Secret Weapon: Trance chart!

MANU RIGA – YOUR SILENT CRIES FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two track slice Your Silent Cries. As ever we’re treated to some sublime progressive moments from this guy who is relentless in his consistent approach to top quality grooves. His last outing here – Disconnected – featured the amazing vocals of Mandy Jones and gained a lot of support from across the board. This time around Adriaan took inspiration from watching a documentary about abuse toward women and the taboo that still surrounds it which will go some way to explain the deep and emotive sounds found within. Two stunning tracks that will be a welcome addition in any collection.

MANU RIGA – YOUR SILENT CRIES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two track slice Your Silent Cries. As ever we’re treated to some sublime progressive moments from this guy who is relentless in his consistent approach to top quality grooves. His last outing here – Disconnected – featured the amazing vocals of Mandy Jones and gained a lot of support from across the board. This time around Adriaan took inspiration from watching a documentary about abuse toward women and the taboo that still surrounds it which will go some way to explain the deep and emotive sounds found within. Two stunning tracks that will be a welcome addition in any collection.

Your Silent Cries is a sublime cut that takes on deep progressive grooves in true Manu Riga fashion. A solid driving arrangement sets the course as tight drums lead the way with a bubbling bassline lurking on the low end. The attention to detail in the drums is outstanding, subtle snare rolls and shuffling hats combine beautifully to give off a rhythmic vibe. Warping synths dish out cool melodics as distant voices loiter in the background. The break contains a beautifully crafted melody from rich sounding instruments adding wonderful colours to the groove. A deep and evocative sound that will appeal to many, a must have for sure.

Point Of No Return intros with a solid punchy kick drum that has a very subtle bassy tail that adds roundness to the sound. Rhythmic percussions soon follow and the track takes us to the floor. A deep and penetrating pulsing bassline fills the groove with a warming glow as swirling pads create a surreal ambience overhead. The track oozes emotion that provoke thought and on the break this is more true as we’re met with a spine tingling vocal. The drums return and get us back on the progressive trail for the duration making this an absolute stomper that is not to be missed.

He’s been churning out quality cuts since 2012 and has established himself as a solid, consistently creative artists. Great to have him on board and no doubt we’ll see more from both in the future.

The Original Mix delivers a solid prog house groover that intros with a chunky kick drums and rhythmic percussion combi. Intricate patterns are formed from the percussion arrangement and slot nicely into the groove. A deep droning bass pad ebbs and flows overhead as the layers build creating depth and drive. A wailing hybrid sax-synth draws attention as the subtle melodies begin to appear on the break taking us on a surreal trek deeper into progressive house. One for the late night session here that will not disappoint.

Nico Parisi is back at his progressive home with another one of his sublime remixes. His last full release was back in 2016 with Attica which performed very well indeed. He has also contributed some fantastic remixes since then and his works continually appear on multiple compilations. On the DJ front he enjoys plenty of gigs across Belgium and beyond. Always worth keeping an eye on this guy with much more to come in the future. On the remix here Nico utilises the melodic elements of the original beautifully working them into his deep and grooving progressive flow. Tight drums and cool percussion patterns create smooth rhythms that flow effortlessly through the track. That deep droning bass adds wonderful depth to the sound as the melodies work their magic. Another top notch slice from Nico and a must have track.

Kevin Vega makes a welcome return and steps up to the remix plate with a brilliantly worked progressive groove. His last outing here – The Crimson King was championed by many and topped many charts. His works always find their way into compilations adding some extra weight to every release. We never tire of this guys attention to detail in his tracks and we’re sure we will see much more in the years ahead. Here Kevin takes the original mix and gives it one of his sublime makeovers adding in extra punch and a driving edge. Tight drums lead the way and a cacophony of percussions insure that the floors will get a workout from this. Various synths layer up to create a sublime sequence that mystify and captivate thanks to the subtle melodies borrowed from the original. A beautifully crafted groove from Kevin that is most definitely not to be missed.

PUSH – UNIVERSAL NATION – GAI BARONE REMIX FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Next up in our series of remixed classics, celebrating our 25th year, we present a contemporary take on one of our most recognisable anthems from back in the day. Progressive maestro Gai Barone takes the driving seat on this one as he delves deep into the anatomy of Universal Nation, penned in 1998 by a stalwart of Belgian trance – Push. From the very first play out, this one became an instant classic with its soaring synths, chugging bassline, swirling melodies and driving beats. It quickly gained a massive worldwide following as it spearheaded a burgeoning scene creating a multitude of hands in the air moments for the masses. Overwhelmed by the response, Push aka M.I.K.E. soon found himself travelling the world and playing out in front of thousands, both as a DJ and using a live band set-up. The track also spawned a plethora of remixes from a wide range of artists including Ferry Corsten and Oliver Lieb among others. In 2016, Universal Nation was voted number 1 on Studio Brussel’s The Greatest Switch Top 100 tracks which, stands as a testament to the high regard this track and its creator is held among music lovers. Over the last number of years one name has been synonymous with deep, melodic progressive grooves, Gai Barone. He delivers pure quality with everything he touches and is very much revered by his peers as an inspirational figure. He is no stranger to Bonzai Progressive, he’s contributed several tracks and remixes that have gained great support and he continues to lead the way with his tight production skills and creativity. The perfect choice for this one we think.

Ruslan’s last outing – Blind Man’s Shine, drew a lot of attention and gained features on various portals including Beatport. Always one to deliver, we’re sure this latest slice will not disappoint.

Jakhira is up first on the remix with his Dark Energy Mix. This guy has been making lots of waves around the office with his beautifully crafted sounds. He puts the house into progressive house with such ease, as shown on his last BP outing – Be As One. Following this one he shifted over to Piston Recordings with his Americana EP showing us his diversity and dynamism in the process. On the remix here he showcases his wonderful creativity once more. A super tight arrangement jam packed with quality sounds and FX and headed up by a solid rhythmic drum section. Warming chords and a fantastic bassline blend effortlessly as the layers build. On the break we’re treated to subtle melodies that allow you drift away before we come back to the main groove for the duration. A definite must have in your collection.

Hungarian producer Paul Kardos is up next with his Rework. Paul last featured on Bonzai Progressive back in October 2015 with The Workout Song and since then he has released a plethora of tracks on several labels. A top notch producer and always one to watch, we’re delighted to have him back at BP. Here Paul takes us deep into progressive with a sublime effort that encompasses everything there is about progressive house. Deep and lush basses, rhythmic percussions and a solid kick drum are joined by atmospheric pads that create some very cool textures. Cascading arpeggios and subtle melodies pique the interest and draw us deeper into the groove. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.
