Portuguese purveyor of fine ass beats and grooves, Joal, returns to Piston Recordings with the fantastic three track Fish Head EP. Joal has been responsible for some top quality music over the years and has seen many releases on labels like Eyepatch Recordings, Howz Choonz, Bonzai Progressive and Bonzai Basiks to name just a few. His last outing on Piston was back in 2014 on remix duties for Paul Rudder’s Never Ending. But, his main outlet is his own Monog Records which he oversees as A&R, bringing in new talent and setting high standards. He also performs outstanding live shows where he showcases his skills running live studio equipment and instruments.

Jeeves debuts on Green Martian with the fantastic Mutate which comes backed up with a remix from music maestro Manu Riga. Mutate is a full on driving progressive groover with some wonderfully crafted melodies that float across the track creating some very nice textures. At its core we get a strong, solid beat which is joined by a throbbing sub bass. Swirling pads and cool FX litter the sound as a mysterious deep spoken vocal comes through. The big hitter here though is the drum section with that pounding kick and crispy hats creating a smooth rhythmic flow. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff returns with Primavera and this time he is flying solo after a successful collaboration with Blufeld on their superb cut Tiefe Gedanken back in May 2016. Tiefe Gedanken was also Igor’s full Bonzai debut as he’d previously been contributing top notch remixes and appearing on various compilations. No doubt we’ll be seeing more from this guy in the future. We’ve enlisted the talents of three top notch artists who bring in their own unique flavour to the track. Nico Parisi, Koschk and Jamie Baggotts join Platunoff on this progressively charged pack with some fantastic results.

Based out of Miami Beach, Florida, Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Breathless which features two stunning remixes from Manu Riga and Rise and Fall. This guy has been churning out quality vibes for over 10 years and in that time he has turned his hand to many styles and genres. He focuses mainly on progressive house but you will find he can dish out top notch deep house, house and tech house with the same dedication and resulting quality. A very much revered artist by his peers, Stan inspires many to reach his standard. His back catalogue is mind blowing and he has appeared on many top rated labels over the years. Great to have him on board at BP and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.
