The Original Mix of Comfort Zone intros with a nice punchy kick and is soon joined by crispy hats and shuffling percussions that gets the rhythms flowing. In the background we have a swirling, deep pad that slowly rises up alongside cool indie vocals that are licked with some superb FX. The bassline meanders through and adds a warm depth to the sound as the deep house grooves surge forward. Powerful stuff here that will definitely keep those late night sessions rocking.

Belgian progressive house stalwart Nico Parisi returns to Bonzai Progressive in fine form to deliver his newest cut, Raklet.

Italian DJ and producer duo Niceteed & FactAlone debut on Piston with the fantastic two track EP entitled The Acid Line. Both guys have come a long way in a relatively short space of time, they have released a wealth of music across many labels already in their young years with quality always shining through. Niceteed aka Biagio got into music from an early age and at just 11 years he was learning the ins and outs of DJing, finding his style and perfecting techniques. In 2011 he started his own label, Chapeau Music where he is always searching for new and unheard sounds. He is influenced by all kinds of music with no genre left untapped. FactAlone aka Antony Sala also got into music at a young age, he was heavily influenced by 90’s sounds and quickly got hooked into DJing. Having played many gigs around Italy he looked into producing in 2012 and established himself firmly on the scene with quality cuts on various labels. Antony is also inspired by multiple genres and he likes to mix things up both on the decks and in the studio. Great to have this exciting duo on board at Piston and we hope to see more in the future.

Belgian maestro Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens kicks off 2016 with Indigenous Rights which is taken from his much anticipated forthcoming studio album. 2015 was indeed a bumper year for this guy and we’d need quite a few paragraphs to cover everything as he was a very busy man. Aside from an exhaustive release schedule which included several original works as a solo artist and a few collaborative projects, he also churned out a raft of remixes and featured on a lot of compilations including Bonzai Progressive’s 500th release – Bonzai and Friends 500 – where he appeared three times with his own A Sense Of Hope, with Matt Holliday on As We Become One and on remix duty alongside Matt on Phi Phi’s Hiccup.

Indian DJ and producer Shashi Shaw aka Chandrama debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Lost In Nubra which comes backed up with two equally fantastic remixes from Manu Riga and J’Dan. He started DJing in 2007 in various commercial events and night spots. In 2013 after learning the art of making music he started to create hypnotic, melodically charged journeys which opened up a doorway to a whole new world. This gave birth to his new project Chandrama which means ‘Moon’ in his native language and as Moon is the source of light during all darkness, Chandrama portrays light through his deep melodies with very natural Asian and Indian elements. He has released his music on Beat Block Records, Never Too Late Recordings and Revelation Records with upcoming releases on By Ground Digital (BGD) and Bonzai Progressive. Lost In Nubra is the result of a real life experience for its composer after exploring the Nubra Valley in India.
