Bulgarian DJ and producer Pavlin Petrov returns to Bonzai Progressive with another sublime effort – Set Me Free. Once again he enlists the vocal talents of Selina Stoane and we can certainly see why. His last outing – Feeling Alive – also featured Selina on vocals and the chemistry created between the two did not go unnoticed. Great to see these two talented artists back once again and we hope to see much more in the future.

Portuguese DJ and producer Mario Silva aka Eat Dust delivers his third outing on Piston Recordings with the fantastic two tracker – Robots EP. We last saw Mario back at the start of 2016 with his Invaders EP which followed an appearance on Monog Records’ 5 year celebratory release. Robots sets out with a real nice thumping kick drum as the percussions fade through building to a solid and steady rhythmic drum section. Cool vocal snippets are introduced but soon make way for a beautifully lush deep house bassline that soon becomes the big focus on the track. Quirky FX fill out the spaces and add cool textures to the sound making this a definite must have track.

Close To My Heart is one of those tracks that will quickly fall into the ‘I gotta drop this one tonight’ category. Pounding kick drums and crispy hi hats alongside tight percussions make for a solid rhythmic groove. A subtle yet hugely effective bassline lurks on the low end ready to pounce. The track gives off a retro vibe as cool vocal snippets come through, but it’s the layers of bass that make this one special as well as background organs that tease all the way through. A truly epic slice of deep and groovy house that will most definitely not disappoint.

Ruslan kicked off 2016 at Bonzai the way he left 2015, by churning out top quality sounds. Perfect Choice comes after his January 2016 slice Crystal Jelly made some headway on the scene. This year is already shaping up to top the last one and the excitement is rising with every track he delivers. First up we have the lush progressive vibes of Perfect Choice which intros with a cool shuffling hat sequence before a pounding kick drum takes control and steers the track into a solid progressive workout. The bassline provides great depth to the sound and hypnotizes with its warmth and downright grooviness. Sweeping synths and cool FX litter the sound adding wonderful textures while on the break we are treated to a surreal sequence that throws in subtle melodies before we slam right back into full on mode. Superb stuff once more from this guy, not to be missed.

He is heavily influenced by Portugal’s infamous underground scene his name began resonating amongst established DJ’s and artists.

He runs his own label – Ssignature Music and back in 2013 our very own label boss Rogerio Martins featured as remix artist on Fauvrelle’s Turn Me On alongside fellow remixer Mi Ke.

Angelo Ferreri & Daniele Kama join forces on our next Piston release with this superb two tracker entitled Wasting Time. Italian DJ and producer Daniele Kama returns to Piston after his remix stint on Hermann Dius’ UK Movement back in December 2015. This Rome based producer is highly respected in the world of electronica having gained lots of support from a host of international DJ’s and working with many other fine artists on various record labels. Joining Daniele is Sicilian born DJ and producer Angelo Ferreri who brings a wealth of musical knowledge to the table having been around the electronic music scene for quite some time. From a young age he was attracted to the Techno sound of the 90’s and pretty soon he found himself using an old Playstation to learn about arrangements. He got into DJing after learning from older jocks and soon he got his first gigs in Italy and then in Europe. 2004 saw him start to produce and he quickly gained attention from many labels. He started his own label – Mood Funk Records soon after and he continues to play us with only the finest quality sounds.

As we are always scouting for producers with talent and a passion for music, we thought it was about time to launch a new remix contest. The winner’s remix will become part of Manu Riga’s new album which is due next summer (with remix contract) and the top 3 will receive a surprise goodie package. Interested? Click the button below to enter the remix contest.
Manu Riga was formed in 2004 by Adriaan Baussens, not long after this in 2005 he released his first single, “Good Feeling”, this rode high in the Belgium dance chart.
After sending the 2005 track “Tai Chi Girl” to Bonzai Progressive he found his new home. The label recognised the potential & appreciated his approach to music resulting in an artist deal.
Soon after this remixes for Quadran, Art Of Trance, … more were requested including remixes for Blufeld, Planisphere, LoQuai & Crocy to name just a few.
Manu Riga’s style is progressive with a touch of emotional synth & a tribal backdrop, this was evident in his release “Time In Between”. The single “No Matter What” on the same label followed with remixes from Moshic, Kintar and others. To date Manu Riga has an impressive list of releases which saw lots of support from all over the world.
