MANU RIGA & DJ FIRE – NO TIME LEFT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Manu and Jurgen team up for the first time on their No Time Left which comes with two superb remixes. As ever Manu continues to deliver the goods from his impressive home studio. His last outing Shadow Of Life continues to perform on charts and download portals with support coming from all directions. Jurgen also remains consistent in the quality department, his Different Faces radio show is gaining ground and his last release Kleine Nyo received a lot of support and gained much attention on download sites. Both artists bring many skills which makes for a very interesting partnership, good to see these guys get together with the hope of more to come in the future.

The Original Mix gets going with a nice punchy kick alongside a fantastic energetic bassline that teases as it fades through. Various FX are expertly placed within the sound giving an airy spacious feel. As the layers build we get drawn into a wonderful tribal driven groove delivered by some stunning percussion arrangement. Ethnic chants are coupled with spoken vocals to great effect bringing something different to the progressive nature of the sound. Such a powerful groove that will be a firm favourite among many for sure.

Loquai is up first on the remix and he delivers another stunning slice of prog which we are accustomed to here at Bonzai. After a short hiatus he was back on Phi Phi & Airwave’s Vanilla as well as an appearance on Club Traxx 2 Breaks. Here he raises the bar with a beautifully crafted deep progressive groove. Punchy kicks and a tight percussion arrangement get the rhythms flowing alongside a throbbing bass that sits perfectly within the sound. Bright synths add contrast as the layers build bringing a myriad of sounds. The break throws up a wonderful musical sequence filled with sweeping pads and cool ethnic chants alongside a subtle arp pattern. An epic slice of prog that will be a welcome addition in any box.

It’s been a while since CJ Art last graced these shores, it was back in 2012 on Nancy Burrello & Digital Angel’s Time X. As well as this remix CJ also makes an appearance on Club Traxx 2 Breaks. Here the track intros with a tight drum arrangement filled with punchy kicks, cool FX and vocal snippets which injects a sprinkling of psy. The track lifts off with the bassline as it drives the groove beautifully into the progressive abyss and beyond. The break solidifies the groove as the bassline strolls along beside some very nice pads and subtle melodies. Fantastic stuff that is not to be missed.

A.M.X – SECRET LOVER (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Cypriot DJ and producer Andreas Metaxas aka A.M.X debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime Secret Lover. Andreas started out DJing from a young age as he had the urge to share his own electronic music experience with everyone. He began to play regularly at top clubs in 2008 which led to sharing line-ups with the likes of Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond, Cosmic Gate, Wippenberg and more. Currently based in the UK Andreas has seen releases on various labels including Karmak Records, Disco Rebels Records, Paprika Musika and Polytechnic Records among others. Lots of new stuff in the pipeline for this guy and we are delighted to have him here at Bonzai Progressive. Secret Lover comes with two fantastic remixes from Tali Freaks and Manuel Palmitesta.

The Original Mix intros with a silky smooth deep vibe as a warm sweeping pad flows beautifully alongside a nice punchy kick and subtle percussion arrangement. As the layers build a strong house groove is born allowing you to get lost in its hypnotic state. On the break a brilliant, raspy evocative vocal captures your imagination and keeps you locked on. Top notch stuff that will appeal to many.

Tali Freaks is up first on the remix with a truly sublime cut. We last saw Tali Freaks back in May this year with his Set The Sun on Eyepatch Recordings. The remix here intros with a cool deep kick as bright percussions begin to stitch together forming a flowing rhythmic vibe. The vocals work well and leads us to a smooth stepping bassline that will definitely get those asses shakin. A pure house vibe with a funky undertone that will be a welcome addition in any set.

Manuel Palmitesta returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duty after his superb remix on Ecco’s switch during the summer. Here he toughens up the groove with a nice chunky kick and sharp percussions that bond well to deliver a tight drum arrangement. A deep pulsating bass sits on the offset beat giving that driving vibe to the sound. Cool house vibes with a sprinkling of techno giving off a very groovy feeling, definitely one to watch.

MATAN CASPI – AIM TO THE MOON (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

2014 has been a very productive year so far for Matan with his string of releases through Bonzai Progressive. Aim To The Moon continues this successful run and is the follow up to the popular Fabulous which gained great support across the board.

The title track Aim To The Moon sets us off with a wonderful energetic vibe that can be felt straight away. Big punchy kicks and an upbeat percussion section makes for a cool driving rhythmic flow and takes us up to the star of the show, the bassline. The bassline sits in the perfect spot within the sound, its lush tones will draw you in and hold you for the duration forcing you to move your body. Smooth textured layers bring out cool synth licks and on the break we are treated to a fantastic pad sequence before getting right back into the mix. A truly progressive groove here that will be a top pick among many for sure.

Hidden Landscape intros with a very cool percussion sequence that builds smoothly generating a nice rhythmic groove. Well rounded kicks soon follow and are joined by a superb dancing bassline that produces so much groovy colours you will have no choice but to shake that ass. Cool synths provide contrasting brighter displays and these marry perfectly with the vocals that add lots of character to the sound. Another stunning slice that will be a most welcome addition to any set.

MATHOV – DARK ACTIVITY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

French DJ and producer Mathov aka Mathieu Meyer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime three tracker Dark Activity. A lover of ethnic percussions Mathov has been inspired by and worked with producers such as Airwave, Kintar, Dark Soul Project and Moshic. He recently left behind Uplifting Trance and decided to take his radioshow on di.fm in a more Progressive Psytrance direction. Great to have him on board and we’re sure he will fit right in at Bonzai.

First up we have Dark Activity which intros with a sublime tribalistic percussion arrangement alongside a deep, dark growling bass synth that captivates the mind instantly. A nice and smooth drum section keeps the rhythms flowing but the big hitter is the monster bassline and ethnic stringed plucks which offer lots of contrasts. Those tribal drums really take on hypnotic traits as you get lost in this wonderfully deep progressive slice, top notch.

Gasparyan smacks you right in the face from the off with its energetically charged drum charged arrangement filled with wonderfully crafted percussion patterns. A warm, lush bass comes through bringing stunning depth to the sound and soon you will be gripped by its power. Striking synths and pads bring a subtle melodic flavour and are balanced beautifully with the darker nature of the sound. A real pumping progressive monster that will be a firm favourite no doubt.

Perception intros with a wonderful deep pad sequence filled with lush bass tones and hair raising bright pitches. The chunky kicks make for a cool breaks arrangement as deeper basses begin to form up at the backend. Big synths tease throughout and you find yourself wanting them to burst out. A highly infectious groove here that will turn a few heads for sure.
