UK based DJ and producer Chris Harris heads up this week’s Bonzai Basik Beats with a superb ride into the progressive abyss. Chris started out as a bass player in a band in 1992 with relative success on the local club scene. He transitioned to DJing and indulged in many genres although his passion was for Trance and Progressive. After a long hiatus he has returned and debuted on our Bonzai Progressive imprint with What’s Left Of Them… which was followed up by Feels Real? In the mix today you can expect top tracks and remixes from Airwave, Astropilot, CJ Art, Audio Noir, John 00 Fleming, JWM, Manu Riga, Parker & Hanson, Matt Holliday, Union Jack and Terra Ferma as well as original material from Chris himself. Get your weekend on the move, you will not be disappointed.
Debut appearance on Bonzai Progressive for Ewan Rill & Casper with the sublime Vacuum EP. The guys have a history together having released tracks in 2013 and 2014 on Stripped Digital and Balkan Connection. As solo artists they both have an extensive back catalogue with support coming in from all angles. Great to see them on board and hopefully much more to come.
Debut appearance on Piston for Spanish DJ and producer Pandeo with the superb two tracker entitled My Brother. Since 2012 Pandeo has seen a raft of releases across many labels including Hall Of Fame Recordings, Umtata Records, Original Fake, Los Bandidos Records and Sonido Local Recordings as well as a feature on Bonzai Progressive’s Tech House Toolbox 3.
The second release from Portuguese Techno outfit, Skull & Tones comes from the mysterious Isonoe with the sublime two track Outer Rim Tales.First up is 000 which intros with a dark themed atmosphere filled with spacey arps and a punchy kick alongside a multi layered rhythmic hat section. The track bores out a hypnotic groove that intensifies with the addition of a deep reverberating, growling bass. The arrangement peaks and troughs with tight precision as we get locked into the vibe for the duration. A late night stomper for sure.
Finnish DJ and producer Mikko Lahti debuts on our Green Martian imprint with the wonderful Pain By Numbers. 2014 saw his first release Tokyo Story on Club 86 Recordings with Back To Mine soon following on Tiger Tycoon. With a hand firmly in the trance sound, his influences are the likes of Armin, Chicane, Above & Beyond, Tiesto and Ferry Corsten. This time around he takes on a slightly different approach with smooth progressive house in mind.
