L.S.G. – NETHERWORLD – REMIXES, PT.1 FEATURED BY BEATPORT

German music genius L.S.G. aka Oliver Lieb throws up a nice little surprise for us with brand new remixes of his famous 1996 cut Netherworld. First appearing on his second studio album – Volume Two – Netherworld quickly became a firm favourite around the world, and now in 2017 we get a glorious re-mastered version and three superb mixes all on a quality vinyl pressing. Oliver Lieb continues to be hugely influential to artists, his career spans almost 3 decades and in that time he’s delivered hundreds of tracks under various guises, with L.S.G. being one of his most popular. He is most known for his cutting edge techno and trance, but he also produces memorable downtempo, ambient and tech house. His works have featured on the legendary Superstition as L.S.G. with tracks like Fragile, Hearts, Blueprint, My Time Is Yours and the list goes on. Paragliders was also hugely successful as was lots of other aliases he went by. From here his tracks were picked by a multitude of labels including Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Platipus and Sven Vath’s Harthouse where his Spicelab moniker dominated. In 1996 his tracks were picked up for some of our own labels starting with an appearance on XTC Trax 3 with Fontana which led to other inclusions on compilations for Bonzai Trance Progressive, Tripomatic and Tranceportation. One of the world’s best known aliases in the electronic music scene no doubt, delighted to have him on board at Bonzai. For 2017 Oliver has created a new solid mix called the Main Mix offering up a wonderful tribute to the original. It delivers punchy kicks and crispy sharp hats alongside bright percussions. Mesmerizing pads fade in as a minimal bassline dances across the groove creating a wonderful re-imagined take on the original. Gated synths ease in to the arrangement and the break on the mix opens up to reveal that beautiful melody. Throughout the track the vocal adds character as well as keeping the classic vibe alive. Bonzai regular Rise and Fall aka Russian artist Anton Vishniakov has the honour of providing the remix and yet again he delivers a stunning progressive workout. While Netherworld remains a timeless classic, this guy has added an outstanding modern twist that will appeal to a new generation of music lovers. The remix is a deep rooted monster filled with lush basses and a solid beat. We’re enthralled by the attention to detail here, subtle nuances in the FX department add depth and texture while the original synth melody is eased in to perfection. A sublime slice that you will not want to miss. To say this is a must have is an understatement.

Hailing from Bulgaria Pavlin grew up with music by Jean Michelle Jarre, Vangleis and Enigma. He started producing in 2005 with a keen interest in Ambient before he got more into progressive house. Since then he mixes his tracks with an ambient atmosphere which is essential for progressive house. He likes to experiment with every new track and express that deep and dark feeling dedicated to his unique style. Over the last 5 or 6 years he has released a plethora of music on various labels including Mystic Carousel Records, KP Recordings, Beat Block Records, Suffused Music as well as Bonzai Progressive among others. On top of this he has an impressive list of remixes for others making him a very much in demand artist. Always great to have his new material drop in, he never disappoints.

JONES & STEPHENSON – THE FIRST REBIRTH – MATT BLACK’S REBORN REMIX FEATURED BY BEATPORT

As we ease ever closer to our 25th anniversary we continue our run of 12 specially commissioned remixed classics with one of THE biggest hits to ever come out of Bonzai Records. Jones & Stephenson’s The First Rebirth was (and still is) the definitive soundtrack to the hard trance era and we’ve enlisted the talented Manchester based DJ and producer Matt Black to work his magic in the studio on the remix. The original track still commands a lot of respect and has been the topic of much musical debate among a vast array of different people with different tastes. Some call it chaotic confusion, others call it sublime melodic trance, but no-one can deny that struck the balance between pumping hardcore beats and energetic melody driven hard trance. Its creators, Frank Sels aka Franky Jones and David Brants aka Axel Stephenson, had unleashed a masterpiece that propelled not only their own profiles but that of Bonzai as well.
