German music genius L.S.G. aka Oliver Lieb throws up a nice little surprise for us with brand new remixes of his famous 1996 cut Netherworld. First appearing on his second studio album – Volume Two – Netherworld quickly became a firm favourite around the world. Oliver Lieb continues to be hugely influential to artists, his career spans almost 3 decades and in that time he’s delivered hundreds of tracks under various guises, with L.S.G. being one of his most popular. He is most known for his cutting edge techno and trance, but he also produces memorable downtempo, ambient and tech house. His works have featured on the legendary Superstition as L.S.G. with tracks like Fragile, Hearts, Blueprint, My Time Is Yours and the list goes on. Paragliders was also hugely successful as was lots of other aliases he went by. From here his tracks were picked by a multitude of labels including Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Platipus and Sven Vath’s Harthouse where his Spicelab moniker dominated. In 1996 his tracks were picked up for some of our own labels starting with an appearance on XTC Trax 3 with Fontana which led to other inclusions on compilations for Bonzai Trance Progressive, Tripomatic and Tranceportation. One of the world’s best known aliases in the electronic music scene no doubt, delighted to have him on board at Bonzai.

The Main Mix delivers punchy kicks and crispy sharp hats alongside bright percussions. Mesmerizing pads fade in as a minimal bassline dances across the groove creating a wonderful re-imagined take on the original. Gated synths ease in to the arrangement and the break on the opens up to reveal that beautiful melody. Throughout the track the vocal adds character as well as keeping the classic vibe alive. An absolute stomper of a remix that will definitely grab a lot attention.

Bonzai regular Rise and Fall aka Russian artist Anton Vishniakov has the honour of providing the remix and yet again he delivers a stunning progressive workout. While Netherworld remains a timeless classic, this guy has added an outstanding modern twist that will appeal to a new generation of music lovers. The remix is a deep rooted monster filled with lush basses and a solid beat. We’re enthralled by the attention to detail here, subtle nuances in the FX department add depth and texture while the original synth melody is eased in to perfection. A sublime slice that you will not want to miss.

PAVLIN PETROV – TREMOR EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE) http://www.bonzaiprogressive.com/pavlin-petrov-tremor-ep-bonzai-progressive/ Mon, 24 Jul 2017 10:26:01 +0000 http://www.bonzaiprogressive.com/?p=23353 Pavlin Petrov delivers yet another one of his magnificent progressive offerings in the form of his new Tremor EP which delivers three very distinctive sounds Read more

Pavlin Petrov delivers yet another one of his magnificent progressive offerings in the form of his new Tremor EP which delivers three very distinctive sounds for our listening pleasure. This one is hot on the heels of his last outing alongside Graham Lloris and their We Are Not Alone from February 2017. Hailing from Bulgaria Pavlin grew up with music by Jean Michelle Jarre, Vangleis and Enigma. He started producing in 2005 with a keen interest in Ambient before he got more into progressive house. Since then he mixes his tracks with an ambient atmosphere which is essential for progressive house. He likes to experiment with every new track and express that deep and dark feeling dedicated to his unique style. Over the last 5 or 6 years he has released a plethora of music on various labels including Mystic Carousel Records, KP Recordings, Beat Block Records, Suffused Music as well as Bonzai Progressive among others. On top of this he has an impressive list of remixes for others making him a very much in demand artist. Always great to have his new material drop in, he never disappoints.

Tremor takes us deep into the progressive rabbit hole with a driving, hypnotic groove. Led by a tight drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks and a myriad of shuffling hi hats, a thick bass moves through the track with dominance. Sharp synth hits resembling an alarm sound take us up to the break where a cosmic inspired lead synth takes over. A superb rising FX climaxes with the track plummeting back into the depths for the duration. An absolute stomper that is not to be missed.

Fortitude gets down and dirty right from the off with a nice chunky kick drum and a gnarly bass hit that transforms into a wonderfully crafted sequence. The rhythm is boosted by cool hi hats and various percussions as a sublime vocal comes in. The vocals offer a very interesting contrast to the gritty nature of the music, creating a unique and dynamic sound that will definitely grab a lot of attention.

Vicious Love goes deep into the progressive abyss thanks to a mind altering cacophony of sounds wrapped up in a super tight arrangement. The track is driven by a thick, gnarly bass and pounding kick drums with various percussions generating a solid rhythm. A dark vocal gives the track a lot of character and blends beautifully with the organic nature of the sounds. The synths offer up a dystopian flavour with a futuristic twist to the sound making this a definite must have for those late night sessions.

DJ and producer Marcelo De Almeida debuts on Piston Recordings with the superb Dub Motion EP which features three excellent cuts. Having spent his childhood in Canada listening to Hip Hop, he later moved to Portugal where he discovered a whole new world of music in the underground house music scene. After mastering the art mixing he turned his hand at music production and began to delve into deep and tech house. He is the label manager at Raw Level Records and over the years he has dished out a plethora of top notch grooves across several quality labels. We’re delighted to have him here at Piston and we hope to see more in the future.

Dub Motion intros with a very nice thumping kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi which are soon joined by some nifty drum work on the percussions that provide a steady rhythmic flow. A spoken vocal comes in which sets the mood for the atmospherics to follow their trippy path. Surreal keys and swirling FX boost the hypnotic groove as a subtle bass keeps the low end moving nicely. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

The Powder sets out with just one thing in mind, to rock the joint, no doubt. Seriously pumping beats over a perfectly balanced percussion arrangement are the main ingredients here and they sure do make a tasty groove. The break features a cool narrative which is followed by distant chord pads that add a sublime characteristic to the groove. This one just ploughs on with the discerning clubber in mind, superb stuff.

My Deep Heart offers a warming deep house vibe which starts off with floating pads and chords over a scattered percussion arrangement and a single down beat. A solid 4×4 rhythm soon takes over and we find ourselves locked in. Bright hi hats cut through a sub level bass that adds lush tones to the groove as screeching FX deliver a mesmeric flavour. The break throws up some beautiful subtle melodies before we’re pulled back into full on mode for the duration. A definite must have for sure.

Mike Morales aka Mi Ke returns to Piston with another round of sublime deep house grooves. This one marks his thrid outing for us having previously scored great support with Come With Me EP back in April 2017 and his debut slice, 214 EP under his Mi Ke moniker. Mike is a force to be reckoned with on the house scene as he’s been around for quite some time. He is heavily influenced by Portugal’s infamous underground scene and his name began resonating amongst established DJ’s and artists. His debut track – Dream Shattered, premiered on Digweed’s Transitions radio show in 2003 and since then he has continued to churn out top quality vibes.

606 State gets moving with a distinctive, organically flavoured drum arrangement that coaxes you into its infectious rhythm. A powerfully deep and probing bassline comes through to dominate the groove as brighter chord stabs are introduced. A cool vocal rings out while groovy keys add an extra spice to the groove. Superb deep house sounds perfect for dancing well into the night.

So Special delivers a solid deep house groove that will definitely keep the floors buzzing. The track is powered by a tight drum arrangement featuring shuffling hi hats and percussions with a nice punchy kick drum as leader. A fantastic subby bass weaves its way through the groove as cool vocals come through. Warm deep house chords are joined by distinct clubby vocals that take the track to the next level and making it a definite must have.

Abib Djinn debuts on Bonzai Basiks with the sublime Cartago Nova EP. Abib joins us from our sister label CZ where he has already enjoyed a couple of solid releases and an appearance at the Amsterdam Dance Event. He is a self confessed genie of dark techno vibes. He loves to create decadent dark atmospheres and hard parties. A wonderful up and coming talent with a lot to offer, this guy is most definitely one to watch for the future, most likely the dark side of the future.

First up we have the monstrous booming techno grooves of Cartago Nova War with its sublime pounding kick drums and sub level bass. Shuffling hi hats and percussion patterns provide a steady flowing rhythm as cool vocal snippets fleet by. Subtle synths lurk in the background as a single hypnotic note pokes through the raucous lower end frequencies. Full on and in your face, not to be missed.

The Cartago Nova War Dub delivers a solid gut busting techno slice much like the original. Pumping beats are overlaid with a sub level bass that gets right under your skin. A much darker, more sinister groove is evident with the Dub thanks to those powerful drums and shuddering basses which keep this one firmly in the underground where it will not disappoint.

Next up is the cleverly arranged Dirty Bull which is full to the brim with drums that layer effortlessly into a multi faceted rhythmic chorus of drums. A raw techno groove is the result which keeps us hooked for the duration. What seems chaotic is quite organised as you start to pick out intricate patterns that interlock perfectly with the next and the next and so on. Fantastic stuff that will definitely grab a lot of attention.

Mirages is a thunderous, pounding techno slice with a powerful kick drum driving the groove deeper into the underground. The kicks are accompanied by sharp hi hats and shuffling percussions to bring in a cool rhythmic flow. A sub shattering bass sits beautifully on the low end while surreal bells fill the spectrum to enhance the trip. Another fine example of raw unadulterated techno that is a definite must have.

As we ease ever closer to our 25th anniversary we continue our run of 12 specially commissioned remixed classics with one of THE biggest hits to ever come out of Bonzai Records. Jones & Stephenson’s The First Rebirth was (and still is) the definitive soundtrack to the hard trance era and we’ve enlisted the talented Manchester based DJ and producer Matt Black to work his magic in the studio on the remix. The original track still commands a lot of respect and has been the topic of much musical debate among a vast array of different people with different tastes. Some call it chaotic confusion, others call it sublime melodic trance, but no-one can deny that struck the balance between pumping hardcore beats and energetic melody driven hard trance. Its creators, Frank Sels aka Franky Jones and David Brants aka Axel Stephenson, had unleashed a masterpiece that propelled not only their own profiles but that of Bonzai as well.

As we ease ever closer to our 25th anniversary we continue our run of 12 specially commissioned remixed classics with one of THE biggest hits to ever come out of Bonzai Records. Jones & Stephenson’s The First Rebirth was (and still is) the definitive soundtrack to the hard trance era and we’ve enlisted the talented Manchester based DJ and producer Matt Black to work his magic in the studio on the remix. The original track still commands a lot of respect and has been the topic of much musical debate among a vast array of different people with different tastes.

Its creators, Frank Sels aka Franky Jones and David Brants aka Axel Stephenson, had unleashed a masterpiece that propelled not only their own profiles but that of Bonzai as well. The First Rebirth went on to spawn numerous re-releases and remixes and still gets a visit from many longstanding and new fans alike. Matt Black has been making music since the mid 90’s but it was when he started Segment Records in 2003 that his work really began to get noticed. Since quitting the label in 2014 he has gone on to have tracks signed to labels such as Stripped Digital, Mirabilis and Pro-B-Tech and he has had remixes on labels such as Crop Circle, Emotional Content and 3rd Avenue. His remix of Stas Drives I Feel Her Butterfly won the mix competition on Keep Thinking and was featured as part of the remix pack. In the past Matt’s music has been played by DJ’s such as Nick Warren and Hernan Cattaneo with airings major radio stations and internet stations such as Proton radio and Frisky. With more projects and releases to come in 2017 Matt continues to develop as an artist as his star continues to rise

Matt Black’s Reborn Remix intros with a classic style punchy kick drum and bright shuffling hi hat combi that forms into a solid rhythmic flow with a little help from cool slapped drums. A scathing synth line comes in which transforms into a fantastic acid sequence and sits snuggly alongside that deep rumbling bassline and synth stabs. That melody we all know and love fades in to take over and on the break it really comes into full effect. The beats and bass return to keep us moving while that acid line makes its presence known once again. A superb contemporary take on a classic that will definitely fit into many sets, a must have.

Talented Russian duo Crossman debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Pentagram which features two quality remixes from Thorin and Yuriy From Russia. With a solid release under their belt alongside Yuriy on Balkan Connection back in 2016, this up and coming musical partnership is definitely one to watch.

The Original Mix opens with a deep foreboding groove filled with a lush bass and warm kicks. Shuffling hi hats bring in a steady flowing rhythm while a wonderful, textured layer of percussions adds intricate patterns. Various synth hits add lots of colour to the sound as the drum section dominates. The break unveils subtle melodies that stand in contrast to the cacophony of drums making this a definite must have for the late night darker rooms.

The hugely talented and popular figure around the Bonzai offices Yuriy From Russia hooks us up with another one of his top notch remixes. His last outing was the fantastic Under The Sky which featured a brilliant vocal from Ange whom he has collaborated with now on two cuts, with great support for each. It’s always a great time when his latest offering drops in. Yuriy’s strengths lie in his ability to draw out every last molecule of the progressive essence, and here he does just that. The track is driven by a tight drum section that forces you to move. On the low end we’re met with a deep droning bass that mesmerizes while the other end of the spectrum dishes out smooth and subtle melodies that captivate the mind. A real deep and meaningful slice here that you do not want to miss.

One of our most popular artists Thorin steps up for remix duties and once again he delivers a fine slice of progressive goodness. This guy boasts a very impressive back catalogue with Bonzai as well as several excellent tracks on various other labels. Back in March 2017 he gave us a quality remix on Cortex Thrill’s Utopia (Colonization) which gained great support from many. Here he notches things up a gear with a solid, driving progressive groove that will definitely find its way into many sets. Powerful kicks combine beautifully with a probing bassline that weaves through the track. Intricate arpeggios provide a brighter, more melodic sound while an array of percussion patterns keep the rhythm flowing. Throughout the track a teasing dark synth pad creates a mesmeric atmosphere that will keep you hooked for the duration. A must have that will not disappoint.

These guys have been working together now for a couple of years and they’ve racked up quite an impressive release count on many top labels including Electrified Mindz, Krata, Dlimited, Egothermia, Zero and many more. They also enjoy DJing at various venues where they dish out their own brand of deep prog and infectious techno. They’re certainly carving a niche for themselves in the underground scene, well worth keeping an eye on.

Roulette comes at us with a nice chunky kick drum and distant percussions before the track explodes with a chugging bassline and sharp snares alongside bright hi hats that deliver a tight rhythm. The track dishes out a dark and sinister groove thanks to that powerful bassline and accompanying synths. The break reveals an even darker side as chilling sounds lurk before we’re slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. A must have for the darker rooms no doubt.

Petrol wastes no time in getting right into the groove as punchy kick drums are joined by a surreal pad. The pad dissolves to leave a hypnotic synth note and some scattered percussions. A powerful synth stab takes centre stage as a magnificent deep and probing bassline fades in to the backdrop of an evolving, hypnotic arpeggio. This is one strong and solid progressive cut that is destined to cause havoc on the floors, absolutely not to be missed.

House music aficionados Discult Soundsystem debut on Piston Recordings with the superb three tracker Onket EP. Known for their super cool parties, their Let’s Discult open air livestreams and groovy sets, we’re delighted to have this talented group on Piston. Onket settles into a deep tech house groove right from the off thanks to a solid drum arrangement and powerful chords. A wonderful bassline enters the fray as an intriguing spoken vocal delivers a narrative to create that deep groovy vibe. The drums and percussions make for a tight rhythmic display that will surely get the floors moving. As the groove powers on the chords become intensive as they get a more prominent stabby hit. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

IDTKNW intros with a classic kick drum and hi hat combi that is joined by the most beautiful Rhodes chords complete with a tasty tremolo on the tail end. A deep, probing bassline comes through to join the chords and create a wonderfully lush and deep groove. Cool vocals litter the track as we’re drawn ever deeper into its sublime vibe. Definitely one for those intimate late night sessions.

Basic Principles delivers an upbeat and upfront tech house groove complete with a raucous acid line that is gonna light up the floors no doubt. Well crafted drum patterns lead the way and provide a dancey rhythmic flow to the groove while surreal chords fill out the background. The bass mirrors the acid sequence to form a powerful bassline as interesting synth arps ease in at the midway point. Excellent stuff and a must have track in any tech fuelled set.

Molinero comes to Piston Recordings with a superb deep house slice entitled Martini EP. A fine debut we think you’ll agree, this one is definitely a keeper. Deep house grooves abound in the garage fuelled Martini that will definitely get a run out in many sets. Powerful probing basses are the order of the day here and no doubt the subs are gonna love it. A groovy drum arrangement filled with chunky kicks and rhythmic percussions keeps the feet dancing while cool chord stabs fill out the high end. A distinct intensity is realised within the track which adds to the deep nature of the groove giving you the tools to command the floor.

Wenn Ich Gehe intros with a punchy kick and bright hi hat combi and the kicks bring the rhythm to life with their flavourful arrangement. A mesmeric chord pad fades in along with a beautifully lush sub level bass which fills out the track brilliantly. The break is a wonderful piece of arrangement, the pads are left alone, slowly fading in with a subtle voice in the background, both creating a surreal atmosphere before the drums return for the duration. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Don Longton shows up on Green Martian with the impressive three tracker – Breaker EP. The son of a Jazz pianist, Don was drawn into the synth sound since the early 70’s and was fascinated by the sounds of ELP, Rick Wakeman and others. He then caught the bug and started to produce his own sounds during the MIDI boom. Although he was constantly on the move, moving to new homes, he continued to play music. In his own words Don is inspired by the incredible talent within the music industry and he is on course to unleash his own sound on the world. He debuted on our flagship label Bonzai Progressive back in 2016 with the fantastic It’s Pouring Outside with much attention. Great to see him back.

Breaker is a solid progressive mover filled with an array of surreal sounds that combine effortlessly to create a twisted dream state. The track is powered by a punchy kick drum and rhythmic percussion arrangement alongside a gut busting offset bassline that moves wonderfully through the track with excellent note changes and variations. Subtle arpeggios fill out the spectrum while the lead synth captivates with its luring advances. Deep, hypnotic and downright brilliant, not to be missed.

Nested intros with a shuffling hat sequence over a deep droning bass and scattered kicks. Layered pads ease in taking us on a cosmic journey to another realm as the kick drums settle into their 4×4 formation, driving the groove. The drums offer up a nice rhythmic flow while the upper frequencies dig into our minds taking us higher and higher. The attention to detail is astounding, small, intricate patterns crop up with the desired maximum effect of keeping us locked on for the duration. A real though provoking piece that demands to be heard over and over, sublime.

Sidewinder sets out with a minimal approach featuring chunky kicks very subtle percussions and various synth tones. The background is filled out with cool perc hits and expertly crafted FX before the bassline comes in alongside beautiful keys. A short break introduces bright, shuffling hi hats and a sublime melody full of mysterious, worldly. The track flourishes with this injection of melody and settles into a solid progressive slice that will most definitely not disappoint.

In the studio has worked with many likeminded artists such as 21street, Andrea Bertolini, Minimize, Rafael Osmo and Strigata to name a few.

The Original sets off with a beautiful ambient sequence backed up with muted kicks and layering percussions. A wonderful musical riser effect takes us into full on mode where chunky kicks take over alongside a lush bassline that dominates the groove. An array of subtle melodies fill the background adding great textures to the sound. On the break we’re introduced to a hair raising vocal which is backed up with interesting arpeggios that create a superb climax before those tight beats return. Brilliant stuff that will be a welcome addition in any late night set.

Hungarian DJ and producer Reis Robert aka Robert R. Hardy shows up on once again on remix duty giving us another taste of his sublime progressive sound. Over the last couple of years this guy has brought some quality vibes to various labels including Mistique Music, Suffused Music and Clinique Recordings to name just a few and we’ve seen him several times now on Bonzai Progressive where he has treated us to his superb producer talents. Here the remix gets underway with a nice and tight drum section filled with punchy kicks, shuffling hi hats and an array of rhythmic percussions. The bassline moves effortlessly through the groove as vivid arps cascade all around. An intriguing vocal breezes through adding intrigue as we get locked deeper into this top notch progressive groove. This one is not to be missed.

Based in La Paz, Bolivia but originally from Stockholm, Sweden, DJ and producer Gon (Gonzalo) Laserna aka metzAnima debuts on BP with this amazing remix. Having nurtured a creative streak since early childhood, Gonzalo focused on music and went on to learn sound engineering and ultimately becoming a DJ in 2001. Soon after, he began producing and his project metzAnima was created. He has dabbled in many genres with successful releases on various labels. At present he is dedicated to finding a perfect balance between his sounds of the past to his sounds of the present, an exciting journey for sure, great to have him on board. On the remix here the track intros with a nice chunky kick drum accompanied by crispy hi hats and various percs that make up a solid rhythmic flow. A deep bassline meanders through the groove and keeps us hooked for the duration. Subtle melodies begin to appear piquing the interest while we are treated to fleeting glimpses of the mesmeric vocal. Superb stuff and a definite must have.

During his career he played together with Solomun, Quivver, Javier Portilla and many more. A hugely talented pairing we are delighted to have on board.

The Original Mix intros with a gritty bass followed by a punchy kick drum and shuffling hi hat combi. A superb staccato bassline drives the track while bright synth arpeggios cascade through the track. We’re drawn deeper into progressive on the break where ethereal pads take over before slamming right back into full on mode. Expertly crafted note changes on the bass give the track a lot of movement making this an absolute must have.

Our very own Manu Riga steps up for remix duties with his Revision Remix which gives us another dose of his special progressive brand. This outing comes hot on the heel of his last effort alongside Rick Pier O’Neil aka RPO and their fantastic Terra Veteris which also features the stunning vocal talent of Mandy Jones. You could say we have become accustomed to Manu Riga’s style, but he always pushes his sound that little bit extra with every release and remix. He has a knack of adding the subtlest of changes that give his tracks an edge, putting them firmly on top of the pile. Lots more to come from this guy so well worth keeping an eye and an ear on. The remix here opens with a solid, punchy kick drum and bright hi hat combi alongside a deep droning bass that sets the mood for this journey into progressive. The pads deliver an intensity in the track that is tangible while sharp synths cut through the lower frequencies. Subtle melodic arpeggios rise up accompanied by fleeting synth hits creating a multi layered and colourful arrangement. Super stuff once again that will most definitely appeal to many.

Paul Angelo & Don Argento are next up on the remix and once again they blow us away with their unique progressive style. Paul and Don are a Cyprus based music duo who’ve delivered some fantastic cuts over the last few years. They started writing and playing electronic music as a duo back in 2013. Since then they performed at top electronic music venues in Cyprus and managed to reach the Beatport top 100 with their debut EP, Bromelain. Their music blends elements of Progressive House, Trance and Techno. They have seen support from big electronic artists and they signed to Bonzai Progressive towards the end of 2016 with their debut – Ipanema – which saw a release in early 2017 and was soon followed with the superb Voyager EP. Here the guys dish out a tight mesmeric slice of prog that comprises rhythmic drums, deep, lush basses and beautifully crafted melodies. The drums will certainly keep the floors moving thanks to those chunky kicks and shuffling hats. Gritty basses dominate the low end while hypnotic arpeggios offer up subtle melodies. On the break we’re taken deeper with an impressive pad display before we head right back to full on mode. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

With a penchant for tech house and deep house, this guy has been churning out quality cuts on various labels for the last number of years.

No More gets right down to business with a superb deep house flavoured groove to get the booty’s working. A tight drum section filled with punchy kicks and various percussions deliver a solid rhythmic groove driven by a bouncing bassline and some very cool vocal snippets. Throughout the track hypnotic synths keep us locked on making this an absolute must have track in your arsenal.

Oldskool Luv takes us back to the early days with this fine example of contemporary deep house accompanied by a retro vibe. The track intros with a tight rhythmic drum arrangement driven by an upbeat bassline and a classic vocal sample that blends effortlessly with the groove. Smooth chords fill out the track adding cool textures while clubby vocals keep the track moving nicely. The big hitter though is the relentless bassline that mesmerizes and forces you to move to the floor. Brilliant stuff that is not to be missed.

Additional chords appear to enhance the groove and on the break they keep the vibe alive before we get slammed back into full on mode for the duration. A stomper for sure, not to be missed.

He is a resident DJ at the most unique and classic venues in Santiago including the Etniko Bar. He’s been a DJ since 1993 and his own music is a result of a developing underground life in his home city and around the world. Here Pablo delivers a tight bass laded groove that will set the booty’s shaking all over the joint. Super tight beats set the rhythmic groove in motion as a deep probing bassline dominates.

Russian electronic musician Maxim Vozisov returns to Green Martian with the sublime Gravitation which follows his previous outing here – M31 Andromeda from the start of 2017. The very first piece of music printed on his mind in his early childhood was a track from the French group Space and their groundbreaking track Magic Fly. As a teenager he had no ideas about dance music, until he listened to U96’s Das Boot, then he discovered rave. He soon found house music in the ever changing world and he became a fan of Daft Punk, Orbital, Air, Underworld, The Chemical Brothers and many more. Sasha became an inspiration for him as he found his own sound and nurtured his own talents. After a period of time he got serious about music and began performing in clubs in Yekaterinburg and Sverdlovsk region. He organized different events and recorded lots of compilations, many of which were broadcasted on various radio stations. In the last few years he turned to producing his own music, he has opened his mind to explore sound and find his own unique style. With several releases on various labels he receives much support from the likes of Guy J, Gai Barone, Solid Stone, Paul Sawyer and more. His tracks are also played on various radio stations such as AH.fm, TM-Radio, Refresh, Radio, Radio SK, Radio Pilot, Proton Radio and many others.

The Original Mix dishes out a superb progressive groove right from the start as the intro gets us in the mood with its deep rooted sound. Chunky kicks and sparse hi hats lead the way as a dark pad rises up from the depths. A sub level bassline drone rocks the bass bins as punchy hits ease in. Hypnotic synths show up as the percussions section keeps the rhythm flowing. The break unleashes a cosmic layered pad that really captures the essence of the groove before we get slammed back into full on mode for the duration. Excellent stuff you do not want to miss.

England based DJ and producer debuts on Green Martian with a fantastic remix which gets right into the heart of pure blissed out progressive house music. Zed has appeared on several top quality labels over the years and no doubt we’re going to be seeing lots more from him in the future, definitely one to watch. The remix here is sublime, it carries a deep groove alongside a wonderful uplifting edge thanks to expertly crafted melodies and a tight construction. A solid drum section keeps us moving while deep droning basses shore up the low end. Swirling pads create magical melodies and on the break these become prominent as we’re taken down the progressive rabbit hole. The break down climaxes with intensity as the beats return for the duration making this an absolute must have track.
