Alex Greenhouse aka Uzbekistan native Aleksandr Pletnev makes his Bonzai Elemental debut with Seasons, a super chilled trek into electronica with wonderfully layered textures and soundscapes. Having started to create his own music since he was 15, Aleksandr scored his first release in 2013 and ever since then he has churned out a plethora of tracks across various labels. He turns his hands to many styles and genres with a direct focus on quality. Great to have him on board and hopefully we’ll be seeing more of this talented artist in the future.

Seasons Intro slowly fades into existence with soft strings and pads before a marching snare drum gathers momentum alongside huge crashing drums and a large orchestral soundscape, the perfect set up to get us underway.

The fresh sounds of Winter enlighten the mind with a euphoric composition comprised of beautiful piano chords and joyful strings. A slow downtempo beat comes through as the track settles into it smooth groove. Nice and uplifting vibes that tell the tale of Winter perfectly.

Spring intros with a colourful piano melody that exudes spurts of life and new beginnings as the melodies intertwine to create an elaborate myriad of textures. A perfectly executed human beatbox carries the sound forward and provides a solid beat for the uplifting groove.

Summer presents a bright and uplifting vibe right from the off as a plinky high pitched piano dishes out its melodics. Cool percussions deliver a real smooth laidback groove the will get the feet tapping as rich strings and pads swirl overhead.

Autumn intros with a wonderfully deep sound that captivates instantly and locks you in for the duration. A brilliantly arranged collection of piano melodies blend together in perfect harmony before a harsh lower bass sound takes over delivering a more intense vibe. Beautifully big and bold with a lot of gusto, just like those Autumn months.

Seasons Outro takes us on a journey of resolve after we trekked through the seasons. Warm, homely sounds make up a rich and pleasing groove that derives a sense of relief and enchantment all rolled into one. Marching snares make a return but in a more subdues fashion than previous that takes us to the end of the track before a soft melody sees us out.

Phi Phi is back and once again he delivers a solid slice of progressive, this time in the form of the outstanding – Breaking Danger. This guy has been churning out quality vibes since the mid 80’s with projects like Dobel You, Honey C, The Gaps, Extreme Trax and the famous Quadran, most of which he produced alongside the late great Philippe Van Mullem. Over these years Phi Phi’s attention was mainly on progressive and trance, and he still leans in that direction to this day.

Since its inception in 2008 Bonzai Basiks has made its goal to bring only the very best sounds to the masses. With its roots now firmly in the tech house, techno arena we thought it fitting to deliver some of the finest classic techno cuts from one of world’s most prolific artists, namely Orlando Voorn. Simply titled – Classics, this one is full of some of his earliest works from a number of aliases he used, 11 of the best tracks from 7 different guises to be exact, complete with some outstanding remixes. Orlando Voorn is revered as having brought the sounds of Amsterdam and Detroit together to create a unique flavour that still rings true today. Having won the Dutch DMC championship in 1986 he then turned his hand to producing. Since 1991 he has been churning out quality techno and he soon got noticed by the likes of Juan Atkins and Derrick May both of whom he has worked with extensively. A fan of many genres of music including Hip Hop, Electro, Drum n Bass, Techno etc…, he used a string of aliases – 31 at last count – with some gaining huge popularity. One of his best known guises is Format which was the project that gave us the superb Solid Session on the legendary ESP Records, one of the most sought after techno cuts of 1991 and beyond. His story goes on and on and on and we’re delighted to have this guy at Bonzai Basiks and we hope to see more from him in the future.

Belfast born Louis Irvine debuts on Progrez with the two tracker Malfunction which takes us on a sublime trek into Techno and beyond.

With his phenomenal stage presence, unique mash-ups, banging mixes and technical tricks Louis continually tantalised the taste buds of party goers, leaving them literally screaming for more.

An astute student he quickly picked up his own style and now, the time is right for him to unleash his sounds on the ears of the world.

Alexey Lisin serves up his next tasty treat on BP with Funny Day featuring stunning vocals from Aves Volare. This will be Alexey’s 4th Bonzai Progressive release working with different vocalists and judging by the previous cuts we know we’re in for some top quality sounds indeed.

The Original Mix delivers a real solid slice of progressive house with a superb 80’s vibe rocking right throughout the sound, from the synths to the bassline and a swinging drum section, this one will definitely fill the floors. The vocal stands out beautifully and is the main component that gives the track that wonderful new romantic groove. Top notch as always and a definite must have track.

Australia’s Audio Noir is back with Another Audio Noir Safari and shows us once more his top notch remix skills in action. His last outing was back in December 2015 with a remix pack of his track Your Love which featured Lokka Vox on vocals. The remix sets off with a cool percussion driven arrangement with warm synths bringing up the rear as a droning bass fades in. We get a taste of the wonderful new romantic styled vocals as the layers build. Cool pitching synths come through and take the track to the next level before we head into the break where an awesome electric guitar riff takes over and solidifying the prog groove that oozes out of the sound. A floorfiller for sure here, not to be missed.

Dennis Franchi shows up next on remix duties and delivers a superb slice for the floors. We last caught a glimpse of Dennis under his House Lovin Criminals guise for a remix on Matan Caspi & Roy Lebens’ Klubnichka back in September 2015. The remix takes us on a cool tech house ride filled with tight beats and a fantastic vocal. Warm chords are met with a bright rhythmic workout dished out by crispy hats and punchy kick drums. The bassline delivers a smooth funky groove that provides the perfect backdrop for the tech fuelled sound. A proper slice of house music for the floors.

Hungarian producer Paul Kardos serves up his Breathing Mix and gives us a superb deep and grooving progressive workout. Last time out Paul was on remix duty for Mendexx’s Deceptive Minds in November 2015. On the remix Paul takes us deeper into a progressive deep house hybrid sound that hypnotizes and mesmerizes. Big chunky kicks are joined by cool crispy shuffling hats and claps to provide a steady flowing rhythm. A deep meandering bassline walks across the groove effortlessly and draws you in with its warm glow. Subtle chords fill out the background as those cool vocals keep the groove deep. A must have track that will keep those late night sessions rocking.
