MICHAEL NUNES – JOURNEY EP (PISTON RECORDINGS)

DJ and producer Michael Nunes marks his Piston debut with the stunning three track Journey EP. Over the years he has taken in lots of music and draws influences from many styles like funk and soul with artists and groups such as Prince, Cameo and Isaac Hayes among his favourites. Growing up in Amsterdam he became intrigued by house music and when he started to DJ he blended the sound of his early years with the sounds of house and disco and spitting out quality deep house, nu disco and tropical. He has played at many top venues across Europe including Paris and the infamous Berghain Cantine in Berlin. Much more to come from this guy on the production and DJing fronts, well worth keeping an eye and an ear on.

Journey intros with a wonderfully warm chord sequence that is joined by a subtle bass creating a deep house groove that gets right under your skin. A very cool bright drum section keeps the rhythm moving at a smooth tempo giving you plenty of time to get your groove on. This one really is a journey, a journey that keeps you locked on for the duration with its infectious hooks and deep grooving basses. Excellent stuff that you will not want to miss.

Sweet Avenue sets off with a pretty upbeat bass alongside a sharp hat as shuffling percussions fade in delivering the rhythm. Punchy kick drum soon follow and are joined by some very cool keys that throw in a sublime take on the deep groove. Beautifully executed house chords fill the sound with a contemporary sound that will most definitely get the floors moving. Cool instrument riffs add wonderful textures to the track and will make this one appeal to many house jocks no doubt, a must have track.

Stay Away From The Fake is true deep house groover from start to finish. You’ll find yourself wrapped up in its warm basses and out of this world FX. A tight drum section leads the way giving you the chance to get those feet shuffling to the floors while excellent synth keys weave through the sound. The track eases along with its smooth pace and sultry sounds while an ultra cool spoken vocal is introduced giving the sound a fantastic urban characteristic filled with wonderful textures. Top notch grooves not to be missed.

MICHAEL DOW – PLANISPHERE (GREEN MARTIAN)

Veteran DJ and producer Michael Dow joins the Green Martian ranks with the epic prog trancer Planisphere. Since 2006 London native Michael boasts a hugely impressive back catalogue on a multitude of top labels and has worked with the best of the best during this time. He runs his own mastering and production studio – Alderney Studio – which explains the sheer quality in his work. A nod to the highly respected Planisphere (Laurent Veronnez and Georges Petkidis) who dominated the Green Martian sound back in the day? Maybe so, all we know is, it’s awesome.

If you like your progressive trance atmospheric and with an epic retro flavour and full of melody then you’ve found the right track. Both the Original and Extended mixes offer up a sublime trek deep into the prog trance sound. Planisphere epitomises the genre with a full on tight drum section filled with chunky beats and wonderfully rhythmic percussions. The bassline bubbles up from below and grabs a hold of your inner groove to get you moving. The extended mix focuses in on the epicness with a seriously superb breakdown that creates a beautifully immersive sequence filled with rich pads and euphoric melodies. After the break we’re right back into those pumping beats and the infectious groove. Definitely one for the peak time sets that will send any crowd into the stratosphere.

MICHAEL BERKLIN – ICHURI (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Michael Berklin returns to Bonzai Progressive and shows off his producer skills with the superb Ichuri which comes backed up with a stunning remix from Steve Sai. His last outing was on remix duties for Nico Parisi’s Children Of Africa which gained a great deal of support and showcased his superb talent perfectly. This time around we treated to more quality progressive vibes that is sure to turn a few heads.

The Original Mix opens with a filtered kick drum and sharp snare on the downbeat as crispy hats fade in. The progressive groove soon gets into full on mode as a wonderful deep bass is layered up against mesmerizing synths and pads. A nice chunky kick drum beefs up the vibe alongside swirling pads that deliver a mystical ambience aided by subtle melodies. A solid slice of prog that will be a welcome addition in any late night set.

The ever impressive Steve Sai steps up for remix duties and once again we are allowed to witness the sheer quality of his work in the progressive tech realm. Steve has been dishing out superb cuts for Bonzai over a good number of years now and he never disappoints. A hard working artist, Steve releases on various other labels and tours regularly playing top venues around Europe and beyond. The remix is a wonderful trek deep into the progressive tech abyss. The intro boasts a punchy kick drum which is accompanied by a warm bass overlay while shuffling, rhythmic hi hats form up. Rich, swirling pads float over head as a deep piano chord lurks on the 8th bar adding a touch of intrigue. The bassline transforms into a fantastic chugging affair that delivers a splash of energy into the track. A wonderful display of progressive meets tech house that is a definite must have.

NICO PARISI – CHILDREN OF AFRICA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Over the last number of years we’ve been privileged to have released many cuts from Nico Parisi. His steadfast dedication and attention to the detail is his sound is truly admirable. His latest slice – Children Of Africa is no exception as once again we are treated to a showcase of his talent in true progressive style. We’ve drafted in some top notch artists Michael Berklin, Surveyor Mode and A.R.E.S. who all delivered superb remixes for this one while staying true to the original.

The Original Mix settles into deep rhythmic progressive vibe right from the outset. Clanging synths break through the sub level bass creating a beautiful contrast in the sound. The bassline pumps out its solid low end groove for the duration keeping a grip on your soul. An intense feeling comes off the sound that both captivates and mystifies. On the break the bass fades out leaving a warping synth and some surreal recording of happy adults and children that adds a wonderful character to the sound. The bass fades back in and the beats take over once more and we find ourselves immersed in the groove to the end. A simply fantastic slice of deep progressive that is not to be missed.

Cyprus based Michael Berklin is doing the rounds on our labels, since his debut back in 2013 on Eyepatch with S.O.P.A. EP and then a stint over at Green Martian with Citizens Of The Earth Vol.1 in the Summer of 2015. Now he has made the leap to our flagship Bonzai Progressive with his fantastic remix which intros with a pumping kick drum and low end bass pulse combi. Subtle percussions begin to fade up and an air of intensity comes through. Gated vocals drift in and out of the sound as the layers build creating a big and powerful progressive groove. Laughing children and adults are scattered throughout the track keeping the character of the original intact. Distant synths play out a hypnotic melody but it’s the intense basses that rule the groove here. Superb stuff and a must have track no doubt.

Italian DJ’s and producers Matteo Tonioli and Marco Nascetti aka Surveyor Mode return to Bonzai Progressive with another tasty remix treat for our listening pleasure. The guys last appearance was back at the start of 2016 with their VV EP and we’ve no doubt that they’ll rock floors once more with this one. The remix intros with a powerful kick drum that is laced with sub level bass creating huge punch that will deliver feet to the floors for sure. Stabbing synths are also at work and sit alongside looping vocals that carry the character of the original mix beautifully. Shuffling hat sequences and tight percussions provide a steady flowing rhythm as this dark progressive vibe builds. The break throws up a surreal synth sequence that mesmerizes before we slam right back into full on mode. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Ariel Parra aka A.R.E.S steps up to the remix desk with a superb slice that will definitely get the floors moving. We first got a glimpse of this talented artist back in March 2015 on our Club Traxx Progressive House 14 compilation before he showed up with his debut on Progrez with Belisha Beacon in August 2015. We know we’re in for one hell of a ride when this guy gets his progressive groove on so buckle up and enjoy. The remix sets off with a massive punchy kick drum that is joined by a monster bassline that dominates the sound brilliantly. Percussive elements and shuffling hats layer up to deliver a strong rhythm while the bass rules the low end. Deep droning synths create a haunting atmosphere that blends perfectly with the deeper groove that weaves throughout the sound. The track boasts a solid progressive vibe but it’s laced with techno giving it a powerful edge that will appeal to many for sure.
