BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 48

EPISODE 90: Gr-oy – Red Light (Eyepatch Recordings)

Gregory Calay aka Gr-oy, born in Belgium and partly raised in Germany, is motivated by music and greatly interested in computer programs. No wonder then that he quickly decided to put these two things together and electronic music became his real passion. In early 2000s Gregory started producing electronic music using Reason and Fruity Loops but then life intervened.

After a very long break, he seriously restarted his own productions in 2009 and this time using Ableton Live, VSTs, Plug-ins and many others. His style can be defined as a mix between deep techno/house and dark down tempo. As his major influences he lists artists and labels such as Thinner, Basic Channel, Swayzak, Ellen Allien, Sascha Funke, Luke Vibert, Kompakt, Dessous Recordings, Warp, Massive Attack…
2010/11 have been good years for Gr-oy as his productions and remixes have been released on Indigo Records, Incense Records, RBL Records, Aenaria Recordings, Kosmo Netlabel, Groovecaffe Netlabel, Melodica Netlabel, Dark Vibe Productions, Scander Records, Eyepatch Recordings.

His new release for Eyepatch Recordings comes with two original tracks, Red Light and Spacewalk plus 2 remixes from Frank Sebastian and Confusion Concepts.

EPISODE 92: Wonji – So Good Inside (Eyepatch Recordings)

Wonji (Juan Gonzalez) born in Brooklyn, New York 1972 is one of four sons in a family of musicians who started his music career playing the trumpet in jr. high band. With these early skills in music he soon started playing other instruments including, guitars, drums, most brass instruments and soon after at the age of 14 discovered turntables. Hip Hop was one of his biggest infuences at that time and encouraged him to think of creative ways to hear and play sounds from the tables. Soon after he started playing private parties, events and such.But there seemed to be something missing…..

At the age of 17 he decided to move to South Florida, Miami and this is where he was introduced to “The House Sound”. With a past in latin music, disco and R&B, Wonji decided to twist and meld these sounds together in his live sets which led him to move to his next step: Producing.

By 1999 House music had evolved so much with many new and updated sounds Wonji could not resist getting involved in production.
“Musical instruments changed so the music changed, the scenes changed so I had to try and keep up with all the new styles”, says Wonji.
Fascinated by the past music and sounds of The Hunger, Front 242, and later DJs like John Digweed, Timo Mass and so on, it was only a matter of time till he started producing his own work.

With an ever evolving sound, Wonji will for sure be around in the music scene for a while. Never passing up new musical possibilities and changing the way music is to be played.
Wonji says about himself: “Making people move and groove, thats all I want to do.”

EPISODE 93: Solarsoul – Heart & Soul Of The Earth (Bonzai Elemental)

Solarsoul (Real name Igor Shalin) was born in November 29, 1980 in Moscow suburbs. Since 2008 he has been broadcasting his own show wich now has a fulltime residence in DI.FM.

EPISODE 94: Markus Ilgner – Time Bandits (Bonzai Basiks)

Markus had only 1 reason to start producing music: LOVE FOR MUSIC
After a couple of years producing quietly in his little studio Markus got the attention of nobody less than Jens Lissat himself who asked him to remix some of his productions. Under the alias TACHIONES Markus released some remixes on labels like Toolroom, Perctraxx and others.
Not much later Markus bumped into an old friend: Timo Manson who offered Markus to release is first very own EP which was released on MusicCity Rec. Soon after that Markus music could be found on the label Audiodevot.
After that things happened very fast. His following album with the title Antitoxin reached the top 30 on Beatport. Almost at the same moment he released his album Etektronic Rush under the disguise The Sons Of Mr Miygai. With all these tremendous releases it was no wonder that Markus suddenly got to play in many events as solo artist as well as under the project Sons Of Mr Miygai. He performed on Ruhr In Love in Oberhausen and in Clubs like Toy in Stuttgart and at Houskeeper. After many successful productions Markus ultimate dream came true: a release on one of the legendary Bonzai labels which pushed him onto a new level of production quality.
Markus does not like to be categorized and tagged but rather prefers to surprise music-lovers and fans with a brand new sound experience with each release. He loves to blend new sounds and technology with his love for the sound of long past days.
Markus makes music for the single listener and not for the masses!
