BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 26 – 2012

EPISODE 195: Aiemo – Sweet Peaches (Bonzai Progressive)

Second release for Unnamed in Eyepatch Recordings. The release comes with two outstanding originals, In Love and If.

The 28-year-old Danish/Italian artist is born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired by the pulsating, urban and unique atmosphere of Copenhagen, David Nicosia Longhi has produced and published under various pseudonyms such as Mazenga and Aiemo. Ranging from deep, minimal psytrance to chillout and melodic lounge music.
David himself describes the importance of inspiration gathered from the fast paced citylife: I love living in the city, there are endless inspirational options, ranging all the way from high-end fashion, cocktailbars, nightlife in general and even the modern oasis areas in Copenhagen, filled with peace and calm energy.I also like the anonymous feeling found in a big city. You could be surrounded by 100s of people and still feel like no one is seeing you. I generally get inspired from beautiful people around me and the desire to make and do something that touches the heart and thought of a human in combination with the electronically produced music. I want to keep living my daydream and my music reflects this.

Practical Inspiration has been gathered from both the trance/balearic scene throughout the 90s all the way to the downtempo and chilled lounge scene in modern time.

His first releases goes back to 2003 with Italian based label Inner-sound Records on the Perfect Evolution compilation and shortly thereafter another release follow with a Danish label. After several years of devoting his artistic abilities in literature he again turned his attention towards electronic music and the perpetual style of modern lounge.
The style from David Nicosia Longhi is now mainly focused on top quality lounge music, with his own deep devotion into a timeless and atmospheric production.

EPISODE 196: Alexander Dancaless feat. Tatiana Maltseva – All The Time (Bonzai Elemental)

Alexander was born in the city of Tyumen, Russia, where he started to study music at a very early age. His strong musical formation had him writing his first productions before graduating from school. His natural sense of music and evolution drove him to work and experiment with electronic and digital productions. Alexander Dancaless developed a unique style that we can consider as the new wave of electronic music. Sound design, sticky rhythms and killer beats are the product of this new talent that will rock electronic fans around the globe. The basic styles: Tech-house, Deep-House, IDM, Downtempo.
Alexanders love of freedom defines his music as an independent and sincere one.

Tatiana Maltseva was born on the 21st of December 1989 in Tyumen (Russia), where she graduated Musical School. Tatiana was singing in the choir and was playing the piano. Also she sang in pop group and as student played in a blues band and then organized a rock band. Tatiana studies philosophy and religion.

EPISODE 197: Patrik Prelovsky – Second Mate (Mint & Mustard Recordings)

Born in Czech Republic in 1983.
I started to play vinyls in 2001 age 17.

At that time I was focusing mainly on techno following guys like Carola, Liebing, Kanzyani, Umek.
Every beginning is hard but with patience and a lot of hard work I am now in the position of playing around the brightest clubs and venues in the Czech Republic

I was actively involved in a tour sponsored by Sony Ericsson that promoting a DJ school this way I was able to play on the most famous festivals happening in the Czech Republic (Hard House, Summer Of Love, Rock For People, Hip Hop Camp)

Ever since software solutions have made their entrance into every DJs Studio I also thought of making my own music seen the situation of the market where the demand for classic DJs is decreasing.

After some trial and error I finally landed the right track which got picked up by Eyepatch Recordings in 2011.

EPISODE 198: Rishi K. – White Krane (Green Martian)

Although still relatively new to the electronic music scene, Rishi has put in hundreds of hours behind the decks already, recording his weekly mixes in multiple genres which can be accessed at www.djrish.podomatic.com.
Rishi is a versatile and stylish DJ, and plays many different genres including tribal, house, progressive house and trance. His love for each of these genres is equal.

He has recently begun producing music and has been working feverishly over the last few months on many different styles. July 2011 saw the release of his first EP on Colombian Records and release on Aenaria Tribal. Since then he has released on prestigeous labels such as System Recordings, TheSounds, Spring Tube Recordings, Green Martian and others.

Soon after that release after release followed on labels such as Karateklub Records who published his Flatrunner EP, Ostfunk Records from Berlin and Etiketa Records from Croatia.

His alter ego, which is actually a merger, Kanzler and Wischnewski was founded in 2010. In his music he combines layers of dry and well-structured sounds together with house grooves and dubby bass, jazz trumpets and oriental sounds and adds a touch of minimalistic to take the crowd beyond the main-floor experience.
People from the press described his sound as Fresh and an Exploration Of The Abstract and Minimal New Chicago Sound.

He is always searching for the striking impulses in club music to turn the hours on the dancefloor into special and lasting moments. He loves to play long DJ-sets benefiting from ability to mix whatever music he pleases selecting with good taste and feel from a range of music.

Lucio Grandi was born in Cali, Colombia on August 5, 1984, with Colombian, French and Italian roots.
His first contact with electronic music happens a the sweet age of 6 when Dance and House music hit the local radios. Intense happiness filled him listening to these tunes. Not long before he starts experimenting with recording tunes and making his own mixtapes.

Ten years later after learning how to mix properly on turn-tables he starts his carrier as a professional DJ playing Techno and listening to DJs like Marco Carola, Ben Sims, Cristian Varela, Jeff Mills, Samuel L Session. He filled his DJ-bag with the dark sounds of strong Techno.

But only 2 years later he finds himself tired of that sound and starts the search of his very own musical identity. DJs like Danny Tenaglia, Vibe, Victor Calderone, Carlos Manaca, Richie Santana convince him that Tribal is his call.

Still not satisfied he ends up to adapt House and Alternative Music into his sets and this turns out to be his true self. Influenced by names like Silicone Soul, Peace Division, Little Louie Vega, Armand Van Helden, Harry Romero, Alton Miller , Afrika Bambaataa gave him the needed diversification and shades in tones that this genre contains.

Actually, it is that variation, that diversification that House Music offers that marks his identity as a DJ because he can choose between one side or the other, achieving a more intense atmosphere in his sets.

He has played along with DJs like Franco de Mulero, Jose Viscaya, Malambo, Lexx, Chile, Chloe Harris of London and with David Guetta in 2009 after winning the first DJ contest of his hometown.

Today he finds himself as a DJ and producer to be part of the infamous Bonzai label group. Convinced of their professionalism and way of working he finds his tracks released on Bonzai Basiks.

No one better than Thomas Stiller to inaugurate our new EP structure.

Instead of one original and three remixes, we’re delivering two great original tracks from the same artist, and Beauty is the first word that comes to my mind while listening to both these deep house tracks…

The starter track, “You Know”, came from a collaboration between Stiller and Lukas Reither, who added an amazing “live feeling”, introducing recordings from crowds and pushing their vocal skills even further.

Next comes “Mountain Hut” filled with good vibes, this track has a very nicely produced vocal bits which give it an amazing “alive motion”.

Both base their percussion in classic house samples which gives to “Mountain Hut” EP the perfect mix between old and new school sound!

EPISODE 179: Blufeld – All My Life (Green Martian)

EPISODE 187: Manu Riga – No Matter What (Bonzai Progressive)

Manu riga was formed in 2004 by Adriaan Baussens and Sven van Hove.Soon they released their first vinyl on Okina Music.Good feeling and a remix by Drkucho was hitting the belgium dance charts on the 22th spot in 2005. Sadly distribution wasn’t catching up with the demand.After this dissapointment Manu Riga didn’t really felt home. Creativity had no freedom.

After a break of two years, Sven & Adriaan gave Manu Riga a second chance but this time they promised they only would follow their heart and do what they like to do.

After sending the 2005 track Tai chi girl to Bonzai Musicthey found that home.Bonzai appreciated and loved the different approach of Manu Riga.Manu Riga signed an artist deal with Bonzai Music in 2010 a remix for Quadran and George V followed soon.

Time in Between is the first which is typical for their style. Progressive with a touch of Tribal and emotional synth.
Bonzai progressive means coming home for Manu Riga.

EPISODE 188: Ignacio Demaria & Steve Prior – Homegrown (Mint & Mustard Recordings)

Unfolding his double side of both DJ and producer, Ignacio Demarias path draws along the electronic music map a rising line that goes beyond its limits to burst into the international circle. His career, based on talent and hard work, led him both to share the decks with figures of the importance of Christopher Lawrence, Donald Glaude, Eric Morillo, Axwell and Sandra Collins to name a few. Precisely, one of the reasons why his name stands out in the vernacular scene is the combining with equal success his work in the booth and in the studio.

Since his beginnings as a professional DJ, Ignacio covered the big club circuit of Los Angeles creating an interesting sound exploration. Taking characters of the rank of Sebastian Ingrosso or Steve Angello as referents, he evolved artistically through the years at the pace of the musical trends and new styles coming from the UK, adapting and incorporating them.
