Manu Riga aka Belgian multi talented artist Adriaan Baussens recently gave us his emotionally charged, quality filled album Surrounded, which performed extremely well on the scene having climbed high in many charts with support from the cream of the crop in the electronic music scene. The album was packed full of stunning progressive sounds and deeper house grooves, so what better way to celebrate this than to call in a host of top notch artists to give the album a remix makeover. Manu Riga’s journey through music has been one of dedication and passion with every project given 100%% to ensure that only the finest quality is delivered. It’s also been filled with personal ups and downs due to his health condition, but with a close knit circle of friends and a dedicated fan base he finds the strength to continue fulfilling his dream of making good music. Without doubt he is one of the hardest working producers around and this is shown through his tremendous contributions to Bonzai Progressive, in both original and remix work. During and after the album he has relentlessly churned out fantastic music and his latest remix from Man On The Moon is testament to that. With so much more coming up in the near future, it’s well worth sticking around to follow this guys story.

The hugely talented Manu Riga steps for remix duties on this one with his Perseverance Remix and once again he delivers a fine slice of progressive for our listening pleasure. For the past 11 years this guy has been a champion for the Bonzai Progressive sound while realising his own diverse sounds. Still enjoying the warm reception from his studio album (as Manu Riga) Surrounded, he wasted no time in getting back to full on work mode and is already lining up some new material and remixes such as this one and his last outing on remix duty for Koschk’s Diwan. Big things still to come from this guy and we always look forward to more. The remix keeps with the deep theme of the original but adds that extra punch to get the floors moving. A nice punchy kick drum leads the way as tight percussions dish out a fine flowing rhythm. The bassline keeps thing on the deeper side with its warm well rounded groove. Pads layer up to fill the sound and create a sublime atmosphere which comes to the fore on the break before breaking down to percussions and FX and then rising once more to take back to the driving groove. Very nice indeed and a definite must have.
