Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic All Along EP. Stan enjoyed great support on his BP debut – Forsaken EP- back in April 2016, prior to this he had appeared on several compilations from Bonzai. We’re delighted he’s back for another run and hope to see much more in the future.
All Along epitomises the summer sound with its upbeat drums and shuffling hats alongside rising arp melodies and cool FX. The icing on the cake though is that monster bass drone that captures the essence of the groove beautifully while a cool mixture of female and male vocals create a diva like vibe. The track just oozes dance appeal and no doubt the floors are gonna love this one.
Keep On Rising comes in two flavours – Original and Dub. Both tracks dish out the same level of tech with the original delivering a brilliant retro vocal that will be instantly recognisable to many. Chunky kicks and bright crispy hats make up a solid rhythm for the track to flow while cool synths litter the sound. A powerful probing bassline is the big player here though as it dominates the groove. The vocal also stands out and will give you something to sing along to while getting your groove on. A wonderfully crafted slice that is a definite must have track in your arsenal. The equally inviting Dub mix is for those who want to lose the vocal and focus on the purer side of the track.

The bassline is joined by a more polished and warmer bass on the break creating a cool contrast and adds to the texture of the sound.

Blufeld’s craftsmanship in making music is second to none, he calls on years of experience in electronic music and is able to turn his hand to many styles. Always a pleasure to have his work drop into the office. The remix opens with a pulsing percussion and sublime pad before a monster kick drum crashes in to dominate and drive the track on its progressive course. As the pads create beautiful melodies a fantastic energy driven bassline weaves its way through the sound creating a wonderfully contrasted sound with hints of trance. The break throws up a stunning breaks sequence against a wall of perfectly tweaked sounds before we’re slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.
Audio Noir returns on remix duties with Another Audio Noir Trip. One of the hardest working artists around, this guy puts his heart and soul into all he produces.

Much revered among his peers this guy toils hard bringing us only the very best sounds and no doubt he will be back to Bonzai at some point in the future, all we can say is, he’s always welcome. The remix turns up the heat a little and gets right into a fine flowing progressive slice from the outset. Tight drums and percussions deliver a cool rhythmic flow as deep basses fade in. In the background a static arp pays homage to the original while a much grittier bass starts to creep in. At the midway point the sound dynamic shifts to include a stunning sequence filled with mismatched keys that send out an almost chaotic vibe while retaining the progressive groove.

Fresh off the back of his much anticipated album – Surrounded – Manu Riga is back with his outstanding Analogics Remix. With the album release still generating a buzz by topping many charts, Adriaan Baussens wastes no time in churning out yet more quality cuts. At the start of 2016 we said that this would be a huge year for this guy, and at the midway point this could not be more true.

The remix intros with a dark bass sound that traps us into the deep progressive vibe it creates. Nice chunky kick drums come into play as various otherworldly sounds are introduced. On the low end the bassline offers a wonderfully deep groove that resonates perfectly through the track as expertly crafted FX and sweeping pads do their thing. Manu brings in a beautiful melodic sequence that contrasts brilliantly with the deeper elements in a melancholic way. On the break we are drawn deeper into the groove as those pads work their magic and the bass fades in slowly taking us back into full on mode and those tasty beats. Simply stunning yet again from the master, a must have for sure.
