Crocy Bonzai Progressive




Slovenian DJ and producer Matevz Crocy aka Crocy began his musical career back in 1992 when he was attending musical school in his hometown. He played the accordion for seven years and travelled through different genres of music, which influences his performances even now. DJing for a decade brought Crocy a lot of experience and opportunities to play alongside famous global DJs such as Umek, Above & Beyond, Blank & Jones, Emma Hewitt, Gareth Emery, Spiller, Coca & Villa, Lange, Ronski Speed, and others.

In the years 2002 and 2003 Crocy attended and won a few DJ competitions on a national scale. He soon started getting media support so he gave a few interviews to a few newspapers and magazines. As this was not enough, he started discovering his production side of music, his own tracks and remixes. His first remix was released by American Dubcoast Records in 2006. It was supported by names like Anthony Pappa, Hernan Cattaneo, Martin Garcia, Jason Jollins, and others.

A year after he remixed the official anthem of one of the biggest electronic music festival in Europe, Street Parade (Zurich), the remix was released on Offshore Records, Switzerland’s leading dance label. The first artist track by Crocy was released on the Serbian label Balkan Connection in 2010. He has also remixed a few Slovenian pop singers such as Lara Love (with Sylvain and Mike Vale) and Lea Likar for her track “A Mavrica do sanja”, which was presented at Slovenia’s biggest song festival Slovenska Popevka. Besides all the DJing and production Crocy hosts a monthly radio show Divine Avenue on Digitally Imported Radio.

After a decade Crocy decided to stop using the vinyl’s and CDs and switched completely to digital. Using MIDI controllers gives him more space for being creative and adding a whole new meaning to his DJ performances and is a great addition to his DJ sets. Combining the deeper side of house with the brighter sounds of progressive trance, spicing it up with just the perfect amount of tech is why Crocy is considered as one of a few who really knows how to bring a party from scratch to peak time and beyond.

2012 and 2013 has seen Crocy release his own material and remixes through Bonzai on labels like Bonzai Progressive, Green Martian and Eyepatch Recordings. He has remixed artists like Manos & Arthur M, Aiemo, Abi Q & Raw E and Rue Duo through the Bonzai imprint.
