CHERRYMOON TRAX – THE HOUSE OF HOUSE – JAM EL MAR REMIX (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

2017 marks a milestone year for us at Bonzai, we’re 25! To mark this momentous occasion we’ve got some amazing surprises that are coming your way over the next 12 months. We kick off the celebrations with a tantalising remix of an absolute classic from an absolute legend, Jam El Mar goes to work on one of Bonzai’s most famous releases – The House Of House by Cherrymoon Trax. First released in 1994 on Bonzai Records – catalogue number for the trainspotters is BR 94054 – THOH fuelled the beginning of a new wave of harder edged sounds and tracks that build and build with epic climaxes. Cherrymoon Trax were a veritable who’s who in the Belgian electronic music scene, borne out of the phenomena that was New Beat, a collection of artists including Bjorn Wendelen, David Brants, Eddy Weyns, Franky Kloeck, Ilya Depuydt, Kris Vanderheyden, Nico Deleu, Pascal Quatretemps, Peter Schiettekatte, Philip Dirix, Youri De Pauw, Yves Deruyter got together and the rest is history. Although the group members have changed over the years the legacy remains. While all this was going on, Jam El Mar aka Rolf Ellmer – alongside his long time friend and studio partner, the late great Mark Spoon aka Markus Löffel, were taking electronic music to new heights as Jam & Spoon with the likes of Follow Me and Stella among many others. So we just knew that he was the perfect candidate to get this party started in style. Keep an eye out for more info as each month we will have a new classic remixed by the cream of the electronic music crop.

The remix delivers a solid techno fuelled ride filled with nostalgia and a burning dancefloor agenda. We’re taken deep with this one and from the intro we’re locked on. A steady pulsing bass note and percussion hit combo trails a fading in “the house of house” vocal. A hypnotic synth pluck comes in before the monster kicks take hold with a powerful bass landing on the beat. The classic synths that we all know join in and, while slowed down still carry the same obsessive, infectious groove that digs deep into your soul. After an intense build up we find ourselves completely spaced out as those synths work their magic. A superb tribute to a much loved classic that will keep the legacy stronger than ever.

SONSEZ – COSMOS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Sonsez debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Cosmos which comes backed up with remixes from Yuriy From Russia and Manu Riga. Based in Germany, Serder Sonsez Dumlu has an impressive list of releases behind him on top notch labels including Baroque Back Catalogue, Deepsessions Recordings, Fraud Recordings and more. We saw him way back in 2013 on our Progrez imprint with his track Balance on the Progrez 10 compilation. Great to have him back with more of his impressive talents and hopefully we’ll be seeing more in the future.

The Original Mix is a wonderfully crafted slice of prog filled with lush sounds and trippy FX. The track chugs away with a raw energetic flavour that will draw you in and keep you locked on for the duration. Pumping kick drums lead the way while a deep powerful bass bubbles along the low end. Beautifully textured layers combine effortlessly that set the groove alight and have you heading straight to the floor. A definite must have track.

The ever impressive Yuriy Kolomiytsev aka Yuriy From Russia returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duties and once again he serves up a tasty treat for our listening pleasure. This guy has been a constant force at Bonzai Progressive for the last number of years. As well as his own material he has contributed a raft of remixes for a plethora of top artists with critical acclaim coming in from all angles. His current discography is extensive and he shows no signs of letting up anytime soon. Here he settles us into his beautifully defined progressive groove right from the off as swirling pads and FX take hold. A powerful kick drum takes over alongside a myriad of colourful percussions that dish out a solid rhythm. A deep probing bassline generates a pure energy that will force you to move along with the progressive groove. Subtle melodies weave through the sound creating a hypnotic vibe as that bassline dominates. An absolute stomper that will not disappoint.

Prolific Belgian artist and Bonzai stalwart Adriaan Bausenns aka Manu Riga is up next with his Cosmic Bells Remix and proves yet again that he is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to creating masterpieces. Adriaan kicks off his 2017 in style with this one and if 2016 is anything to go by then we’re in for another superb ride with his productions. With a very much respected repertoire among his peers and an ever expanding support base we’ve no doubt he’ll deliver in the only way he knows how, with sheer quality. Here he dishes out a solid progressive mover that will certainly gain attention on the floors. The intro boasts a pumping kick drum and sharp hi hat combo alongside rising bass tones and some tough FX that generate a tangible intensity. Cool synth hits litter the sound as the track takes on its hypnotic prowess. Cosmic vibes run through the sound with the use of those superb synths and sublime pads making this a track you will not want to miss.

Darko De Jan explores the intricacies of techno with Reflections. From start to finish we are drawn into and captivated by this solid mover. Deep bubbling basses rise from the depths while a tight drum arrangement sets the rhythm loose. The break unleashes a sublime synth sequence as a playful arp dances through the sound. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Silent Mayhem goes deep into progressive with a sublime effort full of beautifully crafted synths and a wonderfully rhythmic groove. A deep purring bassline wraps us up in a warmth that won’t let got while stabbing synths break through the low frequencies. A high string adds tension as the layers build all around alongside cool vocals that give the track a darker character. Superb stuff that is not to be missed.

Combining new electronic technologies with classical methods of musical energy, Heyspace stays true to his mission of giving the audience particles of joy and happiness in every song. Already he has seen several releases on top labels and now we welcome him to Bonzai.

The Original Mix packs a punch as it straddles the thin line between tech house and deep house creating a solid hybrid perfect for any late night set. Chunky kicks lead the way while bright crispy hats and shuffling percussions add weight to the rhythm. Deep vocal shots add character while deeper synths create a classy groove. Simplistic and highly effective this one is a must have.

IFIR aka Ilyas Fors debuts on Bonzai Progressive with a stunning remix. DJing since 2005 and producing since 2015, Ilyas brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. Based in St. Petersburg he has been prominent in the local music scene for many years having won DJ competitions and gaining notoriety among his peers. He turns his hand to several styles of music with each representing his creative side flawlessly. On the remix here IFIR goes straight for the deep house jugular. Nice, warm house fuelled chords greet us on the intro alongside nice punchy kick drums and cool FX. The rhythm picks up as the percussions come through and we’re locked on for the duration. The subtle bassline lurks on the low end allowing the track to deliver lower frequencies from other areas which creates a real smooth deep house groove. Excellent stuff that is not to be missed.

Rutger debuts on Bonzai Progressive on remix duties and delivers a superb cut for our listening pleasure. Producing since 2015 he has seen a few quality releases on several labels. A talented artist who will be one to watch for the future no doubt. Rutger delivers a solid tech house joint here which will certainly translate well on the floors. Right from the off we get drawn to the upbeat nature from this one. A solid drum arrangement led by a punchy kick drum and crispy hat combo takes hold before some very cool FX and a hypnotic tones come through. Distant synths add wonderful textures as well as that deep and powerful vocal. A subtle bassline keeps the low end interesting and on the break we’re treated to a sublime pad sequence before slamming back into full on mode. A top notch slice that will not disappoint.

Musical genius Airwave returns to Bonzai Progressive for 2017 with the delectable Amber Sky which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. As always we’re blown away by this guy’s brilliance, he manages to bring that WOW factor to everything he touches, his productions remain consistently of a very high standard which will continue for a very long time. 2016 was another big year for Laurent Veronnez, he ramped up his DJ profile with gigs all over the world and solidifying his stance among his army of fans. His last outing Pray For Happiness on JOOF Recordings gained a lot of support and we’ve no doubt that this one will follow suit.

Amber Sky delivers a beautifully constructed simplistic track that packs a massive punch. Airwave’s trademark pumping kick drums lead the charge before a deep and lush rumbling bassline enters to the backdrop of mysterious layered FX. An intensity creeps in as the track builds while a calming pad fills the background. The lead melody comes through and marries perfectly to the changing notes of the bassline. The break dishes out a wonderful soundscape filled with rich pads and droning bass that fade off leaving a tempo increasing build up before slamming right back into the main track for the duration. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.

Basil O’Glue aka Greek DJ and producer Haris Vasiloglou is up first on remix duties and, after appearing on a few compilations for us in the past, this one marks his Bonzai Progressive debut. Having honed his musical taste through listening to many different styles he discovered that he had a penchant for electronic music. Through hard work and devotion he started to produce his own music and he found himself releasing on labels such as Coldharbour, Saturate Audio, Afterglow and Armada to name just a few. The remix intros with a proper oldskool progressive vibe that offers a deep warmth to the sound as throbbing bassline makes its way through. Beautifully crafted FX and a tight drum arrangement deliver a solid rhythm while floating subtle melodies come in. We are soon embroiled in a more contemporary euphoric sound as wide pads and big synths are introduced. A seriously banging track that is a definite must have.

Jamie Baggotts returns with another top notch remix. His last effort was on remix duties for Platunoff’s Primavera which proved popular among many. With a slew of top quality cuts under his belt here at BP, Jamie is establishing himself as a solid artist and very much in demand. Lots more to come from this guy no doubt so keep an eye and an ear on him. On the remix here we set off with huge pounding kick drums accompanied by crispy hats and a bubbling bassline. In the background mysterious pads shimmer as an intensity starts to build. The bassline transforms into a powerful rolling pattern while melodic synths fade in. The break offers a short respite where we’re treated to a beautiful array of sounds that contrast between the low and high frequencies before slamming back into full on mode. Not to be missed.

Freedom sets out with a pulsing bass and punchy kick drum alongside distant percussions that set the mood for a tech fuelled ride. The bassline breaks off into layers that deliver a solid groove to get the booty’s shakin’. Acid lines and ultra cool vocals combine in a mesmeric pact that sets the rhythm on fire making this a straight up pumping track that will not disappoint.
