ORLANDO VOORN – CLASSICS (BONZAI BASIKS)

Since its inception in 2008 Bonzai Basiks has made its goal to bring only the very best sounds to the masses. With its roots now firmly in the tech house, techno arena we thought it fitting to deliver some of the finest classic techno cuts from one of world’s most prolific artists, namely Orlando Voorn. Simply titled – Classics, this one is full of some of his earliest works from a number of aliases he used, 11 of the best tracks from 7 different guises to be exact, complete with some outstanding remixes. Orlando Voorn is revered as having brought the sounds of Amsterdam and Detroit together to create a unique flavour that still rings true today. Having won the Dutch DMC championship in 1986 he then turned his hand to producing. Since 1991 he has been churning out quality techno and he soon got noticed by the likes of Juan Atkins and Derrick May both of whom he has worked with extensively. A fan of many genres of music including Hip Hop, Electro, Drum n Bass, Techno etc…, he used a string of aliases – 31 at last count – with some gaining huge popularity. One of his best known guises is Format which was the project that gave us the superb Solid Session on the legendary ESP Records, one of the most sought after techno cuts of 1991 and beyond. His story goes on and on and on and we’re delighted to have this guy at Bonzai Basiks and we hope to see more from him in the future.

LOUIS IRVINE – MALFUNCTION (PROGREZ)

Belfast born Louis Irvine debuts on Progrez with the two tracker Malfunction which takes us on a sublime trek into Techno and beyond. Louis grew up with a great love of dance music, and it was during this time that he nurtured his own talents drawing influences from all genres. In 2008 he secured his first DJ gig at Concept in Omagh where he remained until its closure playing alongside the likes of Zany, Noisecontrollers, Technoboy and Showtek. With his phenomenal stage presence, unique mash-ups, banging mixes and technical tricks Louis continually tantalised the taste buds of party goers, leaving them literally screaming for more. With several national awards under his belt he took to forming Audio Bandits with a fellow like-minded artist and they began to tour around Ireland impressing local audiences and promoters alike. Throughout this period he was drawn to producing and left the stage behind to focus on making music with help from fellow musicians. An astute student he quickly picked up his own style and now, the time is right for him to unleash his sounds on the ears of the world.

MATAN CASPI – CELEBRIUM (RISE AND FALL REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Rise and Fall is up next on the remix and once more we are blown away by the talent on offer from this guy. He has given us some fine progressive cuts over the years and he never fails to deliver. His last outing Open System proved popular among many which is a testament to his contribution to the scene. The remix intros with a cool muted kick and a great warping bass alongside an array of surreal FX and sounds. A subtle melodic arp fades through and stands out in contrast to the deeper sounds around. The drums layer up nicely with a cool rhythmic vibe that will transform easily to the floors. A solid progressive groove ensues with sweeping synths and risers taking us to the break where we enter a deeper abyss before getting thrust back into the main groove for the duration. Another fine example from Rise and Fall, not to be missed.

LONG GARDEN AVENUE – LOVELIGHT EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Long Garden Avenue is the brainchild of Adriaan Baussens aka Belgian musician, composer, DJ and producer Manu Riga. LGA first came into existence back in 2005 when Adriaan was transitioning between house and progressive. His intention was and still is, to keep his music open to movement between genres and LGA is his vehicle into a more deep house sound. This full release debut entitled Lovelight EP is a collaboration between Adriaan, his good friend Matt Holliday and the stunning vocalist Sam Zeito. This one is a change of direction for Matt as he normally resides over epic progressive cuts, much like Manu. His last outing for Bonzai Progressive – Pipe Dream – proved popular among many and found its way into many sets and charts. Lots more coming from Matt, always worth keeping an eye on. Long Garden Avenue has a story to tell and you can check out our website for an in-depth write up on the man behind the music.
