Today we say goodbye to a friend and a brilliant musician. Philippe Van Mullem aka Quadran came to us with his masterpiece Eternally in 1994 which was the seed that grew Bonzai Trance Progressive into a world renowned and much loved label. Even more than that, his music was at the forefront of a whole new era in electronic music when true progressive trance was born, a movement that is still very much alive today, getting stronger and stronger again. His passion for music was very much embedded in all of his productions and in all his guises such as Quadran, Honey C, Dobel You, Innertales and U.N.A. The musical mission he had taken is one that is still driving us today here at Bonzai Progressive and remained very much in evidence on his latest and unfortunately his last release Animals Rebellion, which was only just revealed last week and quickly became featured at the worldwide authority for electronic downloads: Beatport.
Always in our hearts, we will never forget you.
Thank you for the music. Rest in peace.
After a sublime remix on Quadran’s, Animals Rebellion, Audio Noir kicks off 2015 with the superb Life, which comes packed with three awesome remixes as well as two original versions. 2014 was extremely busy for Australia’s hardest working producer, a studio album, multiple releases and a plethora of remixes have put this guys at the top of his game. So much more to come from down under so make sure you stay tuned.

JWM is a Russian musician and producer based in St. Petersburg and here she makes her Bonzai debut with the sublime Wild Soul which also comes backed up with two superb remixes. From an early age she was surrounded by music as his parents enrolled her in music school where she studied music theory for 7 years and she particularly enjoyed piano and choir. In 2002 she was listening to radio stations and discovered electronic music which she describes as a breathtaking experience. A few years later she got a new computer with Logic Pro 5.0 and spent many hours learning how the software works, with no internet and no manual she navigated her way through Logic, creating and composing to find her own unique style.
