Aitra and E.F.G. debut on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Splash. Since childhood Aitra was interested in club music. As a result of this fascination she has begun her adventure with music production in 2011. Since then, her tracks have been released on labels such as Mistique Music, Electronic Tree. Elliptical Sun, Round Triangle, Majestic Family, Pineapple Digital or Clinique Recordings. E.F.G.’s first musical influences date back to the late ’90s, listening to tunes from acts like The Prodigy and Fatboy Slim who have played a significant role in his musical taste formation. His true passion started in 2005 after discovering trance and techno music. In 2008 E.F.G. released his first tracks and shortly after realised that his style developed into progressive house sound which is his main genre up to today. 2013 turned out as a breakthrough year for Oleg with some big achievements like double support from Markus Schulz, highly praised releases via Electronic Tree, Mistique Music and finally playing successful gigs across Poland.

Detroit based, prolific house music producer and DJ Rick Wade makes a welcome return to Piston, after a bit of a hiatus, with the superb Daedalus. It was back in 2013 when we last got a glimpse of this highly respect artist with his very much revered, Zombie. With a career spanning over 20 years, Rick utilises music as a release which in turn allows him to further his ideas and his approach to creating stunning DJ sets. A product of the heyday of deep house Rick continues to ply his trade through various radioshows with his fresh, soulful and downright dancy sets. Great to see him back with this fantastic offering and we hope to see more in the future.

Irish DJ and producer Cerillo, returns to Piston with Make You Shake. We got our first look back in February 2015 when he unleashed the very well received Hold Tight, which also got a feature on Bonzai Progressive’s Ibiza 2015. With a proven track record on various other labels we have no doubt that this time around we are in for an ass shakin time.

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with the impressive Bodhisattva. Last time out we saw Ashuar gain a lot of support and no doubt this one will be no exception. The original mix of Bodhisattva intros with a punchy kick as sweeping FX cascade in the background. Subtle percussive elements come through as winding synths fade in along with a superb, deep rolling bassline that drives the groove beautifully. The track settles into a deep progressive vibe that really grabs a hold of you and locks you in with its obsessive qualities. On the break that bassline takes over and hypnotises as it fades in and out to the backdrop of eerie synths and distant spoken vocal. A nod to the hedy days of progressive here that will definitely grab the attention of many jocks no doubt.

Belgian DJ and producer K-Fel returns to Bonzai Progressive with this superb two tracker entitled Papyrus. Back in May 2014 saw his debut, Pantheon, gain a lot of support due to the purity of his progressive grooves and we have no doubt that this one will follow suit.

Sound Of Soul intros with a super smooth bass note that glides across a tight drum arrangement filled with crystallized hats and a nice chunky kick.
