Relaunch is back with his long awaited follow up to his Camis Minor EP with the superb Sleepwalking EP. Since then Maik has been very busy with remixes for the likes of Matan Caspi, Airwave & DJ Fire, Philthy Chit and Gai Barone as well as other projects. We are always excited when he delivers his cuts and this one will blow your mind.
First up we have Sleepwalking which takes us on a journey through the deep side of progressive. The intro boasts a beautiful display of deep sounds with throbbing basses and wonderful bright pads with a single kick that teases before pumping out a chunky 4×4 groove. Those arps and pads contrast brilliantly with a deep pulsating bassline that drives the track forward relentlessly. We can hear influences of Psy in there as the bassline produces acidic flavours that add so much texture to the sound. A merciless trek through the darker progressive sphere that will appeal to many for sure.
A State Of Full Consciousness intros with a massive punchy kick and sharp crispy percussions. The bassline gets going early on and brings a tough edge to the sound as it rolls through. An infectious groove ensues and as the layers build we are treated to some outstanding synths that propel the track to new heights. The break lets loose with the synths bringing melodies alongside a droning bass before we are thrust right back into the main groove. A huge pumping track that will light many floors.
The Original Mix of Night Train is up next and the intro takes no prisoners as it unleashes a myriad of pads and FX creating a brilliant soundscape. A plucky arp delivers a sweet melody before the track hits you right in the face with powerful kick and roaring bass combi. Wonderfully layered sounds and FX take the track forward with the bass as the main driving force. We get another taste of melodies on the break which are in stark contrast to the dark nature of the groove and then it’s back to full on mode in this fantastic dark progressive slice.
Lastly on this superb EP we have the Techno Edit of Night Train. We get the driving force from the original as those basses dominate the sound with the emphasis on the darker elements. Nice chunky kicks and a rhythmic percussions keep the groove moving as sweeping pads draw you in. A much more hypnotic affair and one that will gain a lot of attention for sure.
Airwave continues his reign as progressive master to deliver another absolute stomper entitled Carre. His last outing with DJ Fire, Without Roots, is still enjoying high positions on various charts and playlists. DJing is still a big focus for Airwave and he is enjoying gigs and some very cool and exotic places so be sure to catch a glimpse if he comes your way.

Airwave continues his reign as progressive master to deliver another absolute stomper entitled Carre. His last outing with DJ Fire, Without Roots, is still enjoying high positions on various charts and playlists. DJing is still a big focus for Airwave and he is enjoying gigs and some very cool and exotic places so be sure to catch a glimpse if he comes your way. Backed up with two stunning remixes we are sure there is something for everyone here.
The Original Mix gives off a real deep progressive vibe which is evident right from the off as pounding kicks are joined by distant percussions and a deep droning bass sound. Various layers start to build and bring a steady flowing rhythm within a super tight arrangement. In perfect Airwave style you start to feel the intensity as pads begin to rise. Bright melodic flavours offer stark contrasts that work so well with darker elements. We end up locked in a beautifully constructed progressive groove and can only be described a simply sublime, top notch yet again and a definite must have.
Hailing out of Poland we have Monojoke up first on remix duty. This guy is a very much in demand artist due to his diverse range of skills which he utilises to deliver top quality every time he touches his own productions or remixes. He has seen a couple of remixes appear on our compilations in the past and we are delighted to see him grace these shores once more. The remix intros with a very cool display of percussive patterns as well as an ebbing and flowing synth. A large bass pluck is backed with a very cool rising arp that leads us up to the main track where a smooth punchy kick drives the groove. The main bass takes the track up a gear as it relentlessly delivers its powerful progressive force. On the break the synths take over delivering cool melodic phrases that match perfectly with that deep sub bass effect. A fantastic journey that you will not want to miss.
Rise and Fall delivers another top notch remix which we have come to expect given his recent efforts. A firm favourite among many we last saw him with his wonderful Seize The Day back in early summer this year. Here the remix intros with a nice punchy kick with subtle percussions littering the background alongside a sweeping pad. A warm bass pluck sets the tone and is soon joined by a much deeper bass which provides a solid platform. Short synth riffs are accompanied by cool FX as a hypnotic arp begins to rise. The break reveals a very cool display of pads that lead us back into the main groove for the remainder of this epic slice of prog, superb stuff.
Spanish DJ and producer Alex Vidal returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Pieces Of A Dream which comes with two fantastic remixes courtesy of DJ Fire and Blufeld. Alex always dishes out quality cuts as proved on his last outing Solar Citadel which was very well received among many.
The Original Mix sets a cool progressive mood with a nice mellow intro filled with wispy sounds and distant percussions. The drum section fades up to reveal a monster kick that just hits you right in the chest as it pounds out its groove. A truly deep progressive bassline ensues and drives the track beautifully as the crispy percussions keep the rhythm flowing. Cool synth stabs and brighter melodic flavours give a nice contrast as we are drawn into this hypnotising world. A top notch cut yet again which will be a big hitter in any set.
DJ Fire is up first to remix duty and yet again we see his skills shine beautifully. Jurgen has recently been enjoying much attention for his works with lots of features on top sites for Without Roots and his most recent track Kleine Nyo. The remix intros with a firm kick that packs a phat punch, this is joined by some very nice crispy, snappy percussions which build a solid rhythmic base. Very cool synth stabs lurk in the background as the mid section reveals some smooth riffs that have a hint of acidic flavour. Up front a monster bass dominates the groove and sits perfectly in the sound drawing you in completely. The track takes us on a truly sublime journey which you will definitely not want to miss.
Fresh off the back of his last track Threlkeld, Blufeld is up next on the remix with his superb effort. Some big news on the way from Blufeld with the hope of a new album imminent which we are excited about and cannot wait to hear. The remix intros with some rising percussions that lead to a huge chunky kick and droning bass combi that will get the floors pumping for sure. Warm sweeping pads begin to wash over the track beautifully before a sharp melodic synth comes into play. On the break the melodies take over and steer the track in a euphoric detour before slamming right back into the full on progressive monster that it is, an absolute stomper from Blufeld.
Airwave is back for another guest spot here at BBB. Last week his set blew the roof off and this week will be no different as Laurent has lined up some absolute stompers to get your weekend started. Get your party started with a fine blend of progressive grooves with a tech edge with some surprising gems thrown in.
