Rise And Fall aka Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov is back at Bonzai Progressive with another stomping progressive workout. ‘Seize The Day’ comes with two stunning remixes from two masters of their trade.
The Original Mix sets off on a smooth deep progressive groove as a deep resonating bass is joined by a snappy kick and subtle percussion arrangement. Intensity within the sound builds with the addition of some brilliant risers and quality FX. The track breaks down into a surreal display of pads and basses that really captivate your mind and take you on a hypnotic journey. A wonderful trek into the darker side of progressive house and most definitely not to be missed.
Airwave is first up on the remix and we are in for a real treat as always. This guy has been at the top of his game for quite a while and he continues to deliver the goods. The workload he takes on is hugely impressive and the results outstanding. He relentlessly strives for the best out of himself and he always manages to surprise. Currently working on new material and collaborating we remain excited to see what he comes up with next. Here he takes the remix down the breaks path with a beautifully arranged progressive cut. Huge soundscapes are formed out of an array of synths and pads to the backdrop of a solid break beat groove. An intricate web of melodies are there to be discovered which gives the track a truly unique flavour. Lots to look out for hear and will no doubt have you back listening again and again.
Another master of progressive vibes is up next on remix duty. Moshic delivers his remix in style as always. His last Bonzai outing came in the form of ‘Do It To Me Now’ which saw much attention on the circuit for its quality and the diverse range of remixes available. Always great to see this guys works hit the office and we hope to see lots more in the future. The remix intros with cool distant sounding kick and percussion combi, this soon dissipates and becomes a powerful, thumping kick with crisp and sharp hats. The bassline is the dominant force here as it etches out a fantastic groove that will have those dancing feet moving in no time. There is a darker element rolling through this sound and it remains in just the right spot throughout allowing the main track the space to evolve. As the track progresses you suddenly realise you’ve become totally immersed with its hypnotic qualities, even on the break, as the percussive elements take over you are still locked right into the groove. A monster of a tune that is not to be missed!

The masterful Airwave lets loose with this solo effort after a recent run of top notch collaborations. As well as the Original, ‘Triangle’ comes with two superb remixes.

The Original is a wondrous trek deep into the heart of progressive house. The intro gets right to the point with a tough edged kick and a very cool arp that captivates throughout. A deep bass holds the track together beautifully as flowing rhythms are built. Stunning pads run through the track in a subtle manner yet pack a huge punch. The synth work is amazing, creating melodies that intertwine perfectly and climaxing at the break. An infectious journey that will keep you coming back for more, great stuff Laurent!
The first remix come from Swedish quartet Inkfish. We first got introduced to these guys through their remix of Nico Parisi’s ‘Caress’ which gained a lot of support, the remix made it into many charts and featured heavily in many sets from top jocks. Here the guys waste no time getting down to business, a nice chunky kick is coupled with a smooth percussion line and the rhythms then begin to flow. The bass creeps in beautifully and is soon joined by a full on arp sequence that gives off a purely energetic vibe as it flows through the track. The break offers up some grungy licks that adds a cool character to the sound before getting right back into the main groove, another top notch effort from these guys and not to be missed.
Solar Fields aka Magnus Birgersson is our next remix artist on this fine track, he is a music composer with a litany of releases including 10 solo albums. We last saw Magnus on Manu Riga’s stunning ‘Everything Comes To An End’ and here is no exception. The intro gets right into the flow with a nice and snappy arp with smooth percussions in the background. The groove gains momentum as distant hats and cymbals come through before a monster kick gets the grooves really flowing. Nice synth pads bring up the rear and offer a cool contrast to the gritty edge. The bassline ramps up the sound big time, a lot of energy comes off it and adds to that gritty feel throughout. A very intense track indeed that will see a lot of action in those tougher sets.

The king of Trance music is back. There is no question Airwave is one of the producers that built the foundation of the wonderful Trance scene that we know and love today. This very scene has also taken a bashing from the commercial storm that blew through, so if we had to turn to one person to help rebuild things to the ethos that we once knew and loved, wed turn to Airwave

Audio Noir’s ‘Transfagarasan Highway’ which performed very well on the circuit gets a rerub with the help of some top producers in this massive remix pack.
The Original Mix intros with a wonderful and very distinct sub bass, the bass just eases in effortlessly and you begin to realise how recognisable it is, this track is one that will bring back memories of an awesome time in EDM, all the qualities are there for your aural pleasure. The classic vocal sample will have you jumping in no time along with the rolling bassline and tight arrangement. On the break we are treated to a super cool piano and again that vocal sample will keep you focused in on the journey ahead, simply stunning!
Belgium’s legendary M.I.K.E. is first up to the remix desk with an absolute stomper of a remix. Currently, as you would expect, Mike is always busy with something. He juggles a hectic DJ schedule which takes him all over the world, he churns out the quality from the studio on a regular basis and he still finds the time to engage with his loyal fanbase and spend time with family, how does he do it! On this remix he takes the main elements from the original and adds that M.I.K.E. touch that will light up any floor. A thumping great bass intros alongside some sharp percussions that steadily build a smooth rhythmic vibe. That massive vocal sample gets the veins pumping as the track breaks loose with a classic bassline and techy synths as rolling snares raise the temperature even more. The track continues to build with high octane precision and forces you to get those hands in the air as the break unleashes a massive hook which quite simply blows your mind, top stuff from the master!
Airwave aka one hell of a talented guy is up next to remix duty with his own stunning take on this classy track. Laurent is an extremely busy artist at the moment, he is a regular feature and many venues worldwide and this trend is ever increasing as gigs will be taking him to Canada as well as a recent stint in Goa. He is also a hard working studio artist, at present he has many projects on the go alongside Phi Phi and with J00F, aside from that he lends his talents to remixes like we have here. The track intros with that familiar kick and bass combination as crisp hats and percussions begin to form up. Very cool FX deliver a surreal atmosphere before the track takes on a new dimension with the introduction of some tightly arranged drums. The pace quickens and we soon met with some amazing melodic pads that sweep across the sound which is further enhance by a beautifully deep pipe instrument. The break offers up a sublime sequence of melodies before slamming back into this full on progressive grooving monster, stunning!
The ever impressive Manu Riga is up with his Angel On Earth Mix. Manu is always keeping busy with lots of remix work as well as his own material which we will hope to be seeing very soon. From the get go you can feel the energy dripping off this remix as the kicks pick up the pace. These are complimented by a tweaked stuttering vocal and a bassline that drives the groove with a throbbing punch. Beautifully emotive melodies weave an intricate pattern with an ethnic tinge. The break delivers sweet laced arps which ebb and flow alongside that bubbly bassline. A cool, flowing and intense groove for the floors which is not to be missed.
Next up is Thorin with his stunning remix which is full of deep progressive delights. Thorin churns out quality productions on a regular basis. He has a hugely impressive catalogue of remixes as well as his own material which is always very well received from all quarters. His remix intros with a full on in your face groove as chunky kicks are met with contrastingly lush pads a tough edged bass, which makes for a cool combination. This groove powers on relentlessly up to the first short break where the pads come to the fore. Soon after a nice and smooth synth comes into play and adds cool textures to the sound. At the main break some more melodies ease in and that vocal sample also makes a showing before the track kicks right back into the main sound, which makes this a must have track in any set!
The Zen Mix is pure bliss, a huge soundscape that you wish would go on and on. The bass just flows along and is the perfect match for the myriad of sounds in attendance. Spitting pipes, bright synths and that superb vocal blend together beautifully creating an awesome atmosphere where you will lose yourself for a while, brilliant!
