Phi Phi is back at Bonzai Progressive, and this time around he is going solo with the impressive Alone. Featuring remixes from Audio Noir we know that this one will definitely turn a few heads. Phi Phi’s last outing, with studio partner Roddy Reynaert, Atlan performed very well indeed having gained spots on many playlists and DJ charts. Always an exciting time when this guys stuff lands on the desk.
Podgorica, Montenegro based producer AudioStorm aka Ognjen Vukovic†debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Oblivion EP. Since early childhood Ognjen was fascinated by music and listened to many different bands including Pink Floyd, Joy Division, Depeche Mode and The Cure. During the 90’s he turned his attention to electronic dance music and began listening to a lot of progressive sounds from the likes of Deep Dish, Darren Emerson, John Digweed and Sasha to name just a few. Having built up his knowledge he started to produce his own tracks which led to releases on Balkan Connection, Baroque, Mystique Music, Polytechnic as well as a host of others. Delighted to have this guy on board and hope to see more soon.
Italian producers Angelo Draetta & Gianni Alessandrelli join creative forces with their Piston debut Kale Polis EP. Since 2010 Angelo has been a prominent figure among the House music fraternity, he dips his toes into Deep House and Tech House also and has appeared on a vast array of labels including Manyoma Records, City Life, Talk Musique, Green Music and many more. Gianni came through onto the scene in 2014 with top releases on Opium Muzik, Revox Records and Tulipe Records. Great sound from these guys, well worth keeping an eye on.
Serbian DJ and producer Milos Pesovic debuts on SRUR with the superb two track EP entitled Promises. Milos caught the electronic music bug in the early 90’s having listened to The Prodigy and Carl Cox. In those days he couldn’t afford DJing equipment but he was able to learn his skills playing at private parties on borrowed decks. In 2007 he was able to get his own set-up and took his mixing to the next level. The next step for Milos was producing, in 2011 he took up working in the studio and has seen releases on Go Deeva, Beat Therapy, Adapt Recordings and 76 Recordings among others.

The hugely talented Manu Riga joins forces with the wonderfully gifted vocalist Fe Malefiz on their track, Forgotten which comes backed up with a top notch remix from Mark Found. Over the last several months we have seen Manu collaborate with various other artists, from which some stunning results have flourished. This time around is no different as Fe is clearly the right voice for this sound. Manu is a Bonzai Progressive stalwart and an all out work horse, his attention to detail and quality is second to none and the proof is in his works. Fe is no stranger to these shores, she has worked with Dark Soul Project and Mathov on a number of occasions with great support coming in from all angles. But, we’ll let the music do the talking here and remember to keep an eye on Manu as he will have much more coming in the months ahead which we are very excited about.
