DO SHOCK BOOZE – TORITEVA (PROGREZ)

Do Shock Booze (pronounced Doushokubutsu) aka DJ Yoichi Hayashi debuts on Progrez with the sublime Toriteva. Yoichi built a career as a rock band singer and guitarist in the late 90s before moving into the realms of electronic music. His tracks have the scent of creative melody and ethnic taste and are attributed by modern psychedelic sounds. He has seen releases on highly renowned labels such as Traum Schallplatten, Beatfreak Recordings, Baroque Records, Bonzai and Aenaria Music. He also runs his own label Totem Traxx which has a fast growing base. His DJing style is quite unique as he blends multiple genres creating contrasting sounds and melodies. He has performed on a variety of popular radio stations such as Proton Radio, Frisky Radio, Kollektiv K (Fukushima Pref),DMiX (Oscar L) Insomnia FM and Framed FM. In May 2016 his original album Modernian was released simultaneously by German label Resopal Schallware and his own label Totem Traxx. Great to have him on board and we’re sure his tracks will be very well received.

Toriteva comes in 2 flavours with each cutting its own dynamic slice of progressive grooves. Version 1 gets us underway with a cool rhythmic drum section filled with shuffling hats and snappy snares alongside various FX that create a cosmic vibe. The track takes on an epic feel as an intensity seeps into the sound thanks to background pads and distant vocals. The break takes things a step further, going deeper with an array of sounds that combine effortlessly before we’re thrust back into the main groove for the duration. The perfect fodder for a peak time set that will fill floors for sure.

Version 2 is up next and like its sibling it carries a real intense vibe that eats its way into your soul. With a solid drum section leading the way we find ourselves locked into a cosmic battle of sounds that both mesmerize and hypnotize. Although a slightly more minimal track the groove is still filled with a thick well rounded bassline and some seriously top notch FX. The break is a truly surreal experience that will draw you in before spitting you back out onto the floor as those chunky kick drums return once again. A definite contender for those late night sessions.

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. Always one to watch, he never disappoints. Singer/songwriter Gizella (Futak) debuts on Bonzai Progressive and brings along a soul bearing vocal that sends shivers up and down your spine. 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.

ADNAN JAKUBOVIC – TRAFFIC MIND (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Hailed as one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s pioneering producers, Adnan Jakubovic debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Traffic Mind. With an impressive catalogue of quality tracks, Adnan’s production simply has no boundaries and he has never set his music under one style. His style is one of energy and love with each track carrying many characteristics from multiple genres. His first track was released in 2011 and in August 2013 he began his monthly Big Bells podcast on Tenzi.FM radio from India. Today, Big Bells podcast has thousands of listeners worldwide and is being played on several different radio stations every month. Since the beginning of 2016 Adnan became even more active and plays at many parties and festivals across Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region as well as Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. One of his greatest successes is his song Afraid of Happiness published as a part of Initializing V compilation for Suffused Music in Lithuania which was later signed as a soundtrack for K.O.D.O.B.O. – a film currently in production in Los Angeles. His tracks also appear regularly on Beatport’s top listings making him a much sought after artist. Great to have him on board.

The Original Mix sets a deep progressive tone right from the off as chunky kick drums pave the way alongside subtle percussions and a powerful sub bassline that bubbles up from the depths. Swirling, eerie pads fill out the background as haunting vocals creep in. Surreal melodies float through the sound giving off a true underground vibe. Superb stuff that will keep the groove alive in any late night set.

Fresh off the back of his most recent BP slice – Farewell Inti – JoC H steps up to the remix desk with a sublime effort to get the progressive juices flowing. Here JoC H takes us on a sublime journey deep into the progressive abyss with a superb construction made up of tight beats, rhythmic percussions and ethereal cascading melodies. Punchy kicks are at the forefront with crispy hi hats on the offset that generate a nice flowing rhythm. A strong bassline commands the low end as it probes deeper and deeper while those melodies glide effortlessly through the groove. Top notch stuff indeed.

After a short hiatus we welcome back Samotarev who dishes out his latest remix on this one. Last time we seen this guy here was back in June 2016 with the stunning Voice Of Phangan which gained a lot of support. Here he takes us deep, way deep in the progressive sound. Leading the way we have a solid kick that is joined by a bright closed hat and pulsating pads. The bassline keeps the groove firmly in the underground with its hypnotic gait. Cool percussive elements deliver a steady rhythm while mysterious vocals lurk in the background. A fantastic cut that will definitely turn a few heads.

Now residing in Nice, France, Andy spreads his artistic range from music to art and illustration. He has harboured a passion for electronic music for a long time and in 2007 he started to produce his own music with his first release being Geometric Drop EP which gained support from Silicone Soul among others. In 2008, together with Alexx Wolfe he got his first release on vinyl, a remix for Frederic De Carvalho. Then he started working with Sui Generiz and released the Lost Words EP which received huge feedback from the likes of Rodriguez Jr, Kolombo, and James Teej to name just a few.

MUSTAFA GEDIK – RIHE EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Mustafa Gedik debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the wonderful Rihe EP which is backed up with three exceptional remixes from Manu Riga, JoC H and John Lead. Mustafa is a DJ and producer from Istanbul, since 2008 he has been very active on the music scene having shared the stage with top DJ’s and artists as well as performances on many international radio stations. During this period he continued to development himself and has released lots of EP’s on various labels including Baroque Records, Plusquam Records, Virtual Love, Proton, Weekend Music, Lohit and many more. In the studio has worked with many likeminded artists such as 21street, Andrea Bertolini, Minimize, Rafael Osmo, G-Mohris, Mr.raf, Sterbai and Strigata to name a few. A hugely talented artist we are glad to welcome on board at BP

First up we have the Original Mix which is as pure as progressive can get thanks to lush grooves filled with warm bass tones, swirling atmosphere’s and subtle melodies. A distinct Eastern flavour oozes from the sound which is no surprise given Mustafa’s location in the world. One thing that will stand out here is the captivating vocal which alone makes this a must have track. The original is accompanied by a Dub Mix which strips out most of the vocal leaving only teasing snippets in its place. The dub is a standout track with an emphasis on the synth work and is also a not to be missed cut.

First up on the trio of remixes we have Belgium’s progressive house maestro and Bonzai stalwart Manu Riga with his Technotized Remix which puts a firm tech stamp over the track. Not Manu Riga’s usual approach but we think it’s a winner with its warping basses, tight drums and beautifully arranged vocal. A solid driving ‘technotized’ progressive stomper and a must for the collection. JoC H is up next with his remix and once again we’re reminded just how talented this guy is. The progressive vibes ooze out of this one as beautifully tweaked synths deliver that rich sound alongside the deep, hypnotic bassline. The vocal works wonders in the groove and will definitely draw lots of attention. John Lead aka Lisbon, Portugal based DJ and producer Joao Apell is next on the remix roster and he delivers a fantastic slice that will get the progressive taste buds tingling. Here he sticks to a driving, solid formula to get the floors rocking as those chunky kick drums and shuffling percussions combine alongside warping synths and that stunning vocal. Intricate arpeggios litter the sound creating cascading melodies that light the track up beautifully. Excellent stuff you do not want to miss out on.

We never tire of this guys sound, he brings a cool dynamic to the table which translates brilliantly on the floors. His warm tones are full of richness and subtle melodies which give him a unique slot in the music world. Always a pleasure to get his music through the inbox.

Flashback draws you in right from the off with an alluring vocal that peeks out from behind a nice chunky kickdrum. A probing bass shows up alongside loose hi hats creating a cool clubby vibe.

A nice and warm track that will set the mood for an endearing progressive set.

Force Field opens with punchy kick drum and a deep penetrating bassline that sets the track up nicely on its progressive journey. Soft open hi hats are matched with rhythmic percussions and a cool vocal as the bassline hypnotizes. Subtle melodies come through and add to the already warming glow from the track. A more prominent synth emerges in the latter stages to give the track a cool contrast. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

PAUL SAWYER – I KNOW (GREEN MARTIAN)

Winchester, England born Paul Sawyer debuts on Green Martian with this sublime two tracker entitled I Know. Paul is a serious hands on artist who is not afraid to get his hands dirty trying new things and looking for the next melody or harmony. Inspired by his younger brother, one of the original DJ’s on the free rave scene around Hampshire. Paul would later start to learn the art of mixing once the parties had started to move into clubs, developing a serious vinyl habit and embracing the pioneering, cutting edge dance music of the time. As the expansion of the house music movement started to take hold of the early 90´s, Paul´s DJ career blossomed as a valued resident at a flurry of new, enticing clubbing hotspots around the home counties, including the House of Windsor parties, of which his first appearance involved warming up for major influencer and teenage hero Sasha. After several stints in Ibiza he returned to the UK and by the late noughties he was cited one of DJ Mag´s Top 10 Resident DJ’s in the UK and quoted by Mixmag as a DJ to look out for. He soon moved into production and launched his label Krafted, which saw multiple releases with Konneqt, Whartone Records, Sweep the Floor, Suffused Music and Cockpitch Records amongst others. Paul’s new project Soultrak, with long time free-party buddy and fellow DJ Paul Moore is making waves across the underground, while his original productions are gleaning support from industry key players. Great to have him on board here at GM and we hope to see more in the future.

I Know is a beautifully constructed hybrid track that will slot easily into different style sets with ease. A tight drum arrangement leads the way over a dancey bassline that lures you in with its phat charms. Cascading synths deliver subtle melodies alongside a superb mesmerizing vocal while cool FX add colour to the sound. The break is a brilliant sequence that will keep you locked with anticipation before those solid beats come crashing through for the duration. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Fight For Love takes us on a sublime journey filled with serene landscapes, sweet melodics and a solid, tight break beat drum arrangement. Throughout the track we’re pleasantly surprised by the endless variations on the melody that can be interpreted. A strong spoken vocal provides a captivating narrative the piques the interest while that punchy kick drum dishes out its breaks patterns. Fantastic stuff that will be a welcome addition in any collection.

One for the late night session here that will not disappoint.

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.
