GEORGE ELLINAS – ILLUSIONIZE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Cypriot DJ and producer George Ellinas debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the stunning Illusionize which comes backed up with a superb remix from Manu Riga. Since 2010 George has been responsible for a string of top quality tracks across many labels and delving into various genres along the way. His music enjoys great support from the likes of Armin Van Buuren, EDX, Paul Oakenfold, Moonbeam and more. Delighted to have him on board and we hope to see more in the future.

The Original Mix intros with a subtle kick to the backdrop of a mesmerizing arpeggio that cascades through you mind, lulling you into its warm groove. Swirling pads create a serene atmosphere as the arps are given a dose of modulation before subsiding back to a more mellow flow. The kick drum gets beefed up which tightens up the drums beautifully. As the track progresses we are introduced to an array of sweet melodies as well as a captivating voice that really digs deep into your mind. A fantastic slice that delivers a somewhat euphoric side to progressive house.

Manu Riga continues to go from strength to strength, he remains consistent in the quality department in everything he does. After a string of very popular remixes in 2016 – including his last Lift Off Remix for Karim S featuring Lounasan – Pilots Of The Millennium – he delivers his Melodic Remix and in true Manu Riga style he knocks it outta the park. On the remix here we can tell that Manu is going straight to the floors as he dishes out a solid drum arrangement complete with punchy kick drums, bright hi hats and a building percussion set. Melodic arps start to fade in and we quickly succumb to its hypnotic prowess. On top of the arps we find super sweet harmonious notes that compliment the sound superbly. The arps have a weaving effect as the filters are let loose creating a wonderful tapestry of textures. Driving the groove is a strong and powerful bassline that hangs perfectly on the low end allowing the track to breath while holding us in it grasp. Another sublime effort by Manu Riga that you do not want to miss.

MANUEL PALMITESTA – RUSH HOUR EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

German DJ and producer Manuel Palmitesta marks his full release debut on Bonzai Progressive with the superb two tracker Rush Hour EP. Over the last few years we have seen this guy crop up on several releases where he delivered top notch remixes. Ecco’s Switch, A.M.X’s Secret Lover and Tech Dealer’s Plastic Vibes are just some of the releases he’s contributed to. We’ve also seen him appear on Bonzai Basik Beats radio show. He has also seen releases on many labels over the last few years and he always gains lots of support. We’re delighted to see him back with his own cut and we’ve no doubt this one will turn a few heads.

Rush Hour is a solid tech house driven minimalistic slice that delivers a superb four to the floor groove. Pumping kick drums lead the way as a beautifully arranged percussions arrangement keeps the rhythm moving. The minimal approach speaks volumes as we’re drawn into the hypnotic nature of the track thanks to some cool FX and an eerie vox sound. Excellent stuff you do not want to miss.

Corruption takes us deep into the tech house abyss with a bassy thumper that will certainly get the bootys shakin. The track is powered by some chunky kick drums and a cacophony of bright and noisy hats and cymbals. On the low end we’re treated to a pulsating bassline that becomes the soul of the groove. Tribal style percussions mesmerize as the bass transforms and intensifies the groove. Definitely a track not to be missed.

Trigger intros with a nice pounding kick drum alongside crispy hi hats and some cool percussion patterns that get the rhythm moving smoothly. A throbbing, pulsing deep low end bassline weaves its way through the track becoming infectious to the mind. Some seriously clever play with the drums and percussions creates stunning textures in the sound against a backdrop of a mesmerizing pad. Definitely a must have track for late night prog sessions.

Winter Sky goes straight for the jugular right from the get go. A solid groove rises instantly out of a punchy kick drum and deep rolling bassline combi. Percussions slowly find their way in generating a fine flowing rhythm out of some interesting patterns. A hypnotic pad rises and forms the seed that will blossom into a full on sublime progressive house workout courtesy of a superb display of synths. Top notch stuff indeed you will not want to miss.

He also began to buy his first records and shortly thereafter was inspired by Chicago house music, Detroit techno and Mayday. He started to DJ at many parties in his local area before breaking out and playing all over Belgium.

If you’re looking for some serious progressive beats then Pilots Of The Millennium is for you. This one delivers the goods in style with a solid lush bass at its core. Right from the get go we are entranced with the groove as it draws us in with a superb bassline and intricate percussion patterns. A very subtle and simple melody from just a few notes is enough to pique your interest as we embark on this epic journey. Bubbling acid lines fade in as magical strings are introduced bringing a cosmic vibe to the sound. The break throws up a divine sequence with wonderfully hypnotic melodies climaxing in a kick drum roll before slamming back into full on mode. A definite must have.

Manu Riga continues his exhaustive 2016 with another fine remix that is directed squarely to the floors and the deeper recesses of the mind. The remix intros with a hypnotic thumping kick drum and offset bass combo with a shuffling hat sequence up top providing a steady rhythmic flow. The probing bass digs deep into your mind as the layers build creating a tight arrangement. Club style chords slot in perfectly against a backdrop of some very cool spoken vocals. Mesmeric strings and synths weave their intricate patterns through the sound and on the break we are graced with a beautiful ethnic female vocal that sends shivers down the spine. Another epic slice form the master of the beat, not to be missed.

The Original Mix of Parazard is a brilliant slice of club progressive featuring a stunning, catchy diva inspired vocal. A solid kick drum and rhythmic percussion section gives this one maximum dancefloor appeal and when you throw in a deep probing bassline then you’ll have no choice but to get down. If that wasn’t enough we are treated to some excellent vocals that blend perfectly into the prog style with a distinct house flavour. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

The ever popular Experimental Feelings delivers yet another fine cut with his remix of Parazard. A solid progressive performance ensues with punchy kick drums and shuffling hi hats alongside a deep bubbling bassline at the forefront. The diva fuelled vocal that rings out dominates the track brilliantly adding that special club appeal to the sound. Mysterious pads and FX give off a wonderfully rich vibe full of cool textures while a beautifully subtle synth line runs through the track. A real stomper here that will generate a lot of attention for sure.

ALL SPECIES – EQUINOX (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Athens based artists Erikos A and Greg S make up All Species and here they debut on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime progressive breaks of Equinox. Erikos and Greg got into music from a very young age, in the nineties they became hooked on electronic music enjoying various genres like downtempo, chill out and all manner of electronic dance rhythms. They have created their own style that combines nostalgic spacey sounds with live performance acoustic instruments. In 2005 they started to make music together while enjoying the benefits of their friendship and sharing their creativity to find new ways of creating sounds.

Equinox gets us on the move with a fantastic pacey breakbeat that carries a subtle drum n bass kinda groove. The tight drum patterns deliver the goodness and will certainly get feet on the floors with their solid rhythms. The track also generates a beautifully musical vibe with a myriad of synths and effects garnering a rich tapestry of sound with a progressive edge. A wonderful slice here that will be a welcome addition to any collection.

Planet Groove is an epic trek into progressive breaks with a wonderfully diverse arrangement of sounds that captivate the mind. The intro boasts some very nice synths that stay the course before being joined by fantastic beats that carry a fine flowing rhythm. Slick percussions and pumping breakbeats is where it’s at here and combined with progressive elements makes for some very interesting patterns. At the midway point the track goes four to the floor with a punchy kick drum taking the lead alongside a superb warm bassline and sublime synths and FX. An outstanding hybrid track that will generate a lot of interest no doubt.

Time Machine takes us deep into the groove with a wonderful composition made up of psychedelic arps and expertly crafted FX that add beautiful textures to the sound. At its heart we find a throbbing bass that offers a warming sensation as it transcends through the sound. The drum section is simply stunning, it delivers a solid groove with intricate patterns made up of shuffling hats and a driving kick drum that blend perfectly into a fine arrangement. Another superbly constructed slice from this talented duo that will certainly not go amiss.

MATT HOLLIDAY – UNDERWORLD (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matt Holliday is back once again at Bonzai Progressive with another stunning slice entitled Underworld. These last few years have been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride for Matt, on top of moving to a new country, he found himself in great demand after a plethora of quality releases and taking the helm at JOOF Aura. 2016 has been a huge year after what has been described by many as a ‘killer set’ at the Luminosity Trance Gathering in Amsterdam, and the release of his long awaited studio album on Phase Of Life. It’s always great to see this guys work drop into the mailbox and we’ve no doubt we’ll be seeing lots more in the future. In the meantime check out this latest offering and don’t forget to tune in to Matt’s radioshow Ethnoscience alongside Manu Riga, the first Saturday of each month on Progressive Beats Radio.

Underworld could be considered as some of Matt’s deepest, darkest works. Right from the start we are drawn into a murky and moody sound that is steeped in glorious low end basses and sublime pads and FX. A fantastic ethnically charged vocal runs through the track delivering a chilling narrative given the tone of the voice. Quite a minimal piece with a lot of character and raw grooves that will definitely keep those late night sessions moving.

Belfast’s Louis Irvine is up on remix duties and this one also marks his Bonzai Progressive debut. Louis normally resides over on our Progrez offshoot where he dishes out quality techno grooves, the latest of which – Alpas EP – is performing very well indeed. As this is Louis’ first remix he set out to deliver a bad ass mutha, and we think he’s done just that. After a bit of trial and error he found the path he wanted to take and decided to throw in the vocal which definitely takes things up a notch or two. He was thinking big on this one and he has certainly captured that big festival vibe which is sure to please many. The remix intros with thunderous kick drum that would be right at home at any festival and its massive sound system. Bright crispy hats cut through the low frequencies as hypnotic percussions start to fade up. The techno fuelled groove settles into its mesmeric state while some very cool vocals come through. An absolute stomper no doubt that will tear up any floor.
