This bond and also their passion for music and especially Twins In Mind grew stronger and stronger, despite the obvious distance among them.

All three were inspired by the infamous musical project Enigma from Michael Cretu, so they decided to put their hands together to create this project which soon developed its own, new distinctive sound, fresh and deep enough to touch many souls in the world, no matter what continent, religion or age.

They are known for building more than just a regular party, every night is another story, a souvenir , a sound and loop collage of the finest. Some DJ’s fear them, cause of their provocative “mind blasting” spinning. Others love them cause of their original approxiative way of serving music to a dancing crowd. Sometimes with a slice of self made samples or film-text-anecdotes, sometimes with crazy sounds or test-records, the sky has no limits.

BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 45 – 2011

EPISODE 81: Fab Code – Midnight Shuffle (Bonzai Progressive)

At an early age Fab was bewitched by music. At age 6 he was attracted by the sounds of soul, funk and disco playing from his parents jukebox. Rocked to the sounds of Tamla Motown, James Brown, Barry White, KC & The Sunshine Band and later Kraftwerk. All this built up in him to a music culture dominated by rhythm and groove.

In the early 80s he began his DJ career (as DJ Fab) and became resident in a trendy club in Brussels called -Disco Steve-. Residencies and bookings would follow one another until 1988, playing in many local clubs, always quality venues, such as Le Veaudeville, Le Garage, Le Variete, La Pergola, Le Disque Rouge (Fuse), Las Vegas, and many others. The musical styles he spins with finesse and technique are funk, disco and new wave, the hype music for this era.

After hanging up his DJ gloves to explore new musical fields, music production, we see him reappear in 1989 with the release of his debut single -Warbeat- under the pseudonym Bassline Boys. The success was immediate following the mini scandal triggered by this title when it was broadcasted in Chistophe Dechavanne’s -ciel mon mardi- (TF1 – French TV), and the musical response entitled -On se calme (Mr. Dechavanne)- turned into a massive hit in France, selling over 400,000 copies and awarded with a gold record. New Beat, Acid House, Techno and Hardcore releases will succeed during the following years under various monickers, such as Fax Yourself, BSR, Defcon, DSK, Hydrowave, Speed Limit, etc.

In 1994 he decided to return to the turntables, and when he met Claude El Divino (City Parade) he joined the -Underground Energy- team, which allowed him play in one of the most prestigious clubs of Belgium, the Extreme. After a series of bookings with Energy Underground he became a resident at Extreme. Other residencies and bookings followed, including La Raza, Planet Hardcore, Cocoon, Illusion, Zenith, Pavarotti and so on.

After a break from both the deejaying and studio work during the early 2000s, he comes back in 2006 with a new challenge, creating and running his own DJ Bar, which will be called -bar©ode-. The project took its flight, the parties became famous throughout Belgium and abroad, and renowned DJs lined up behind bar©odes decks. Pole Folder (Bedrock Records), Filterheadz (I Love Techno), CP (Pulse Factory) Ecco (KMB records), Rudy (Fuse), Xian (Cafe dAnvers), Milo (You), Dave Kane, Trap House, to name a few.

Inspired by the name of his latest project -bar©ode- DJ Fab became Fab Code, and after the bar closed late 2007, he resumed the hunt for bookings. He joined the team of DJ Ecco called -United Elektro- and also played at -Dance Machine- and -Acid Or Not- parties until the end of 2009, then Fab decided to move and settle in the United Kingdom.

Freshly landed in Manchester, his new home, he went back to work and returned to the recording studio to relaunch his career as a producer / composer. He released his first tracks in 2010 on Belgian label Kiss My Beat Records (KMB) and has now signed with Bonzai Music to release some material on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks and Mint & Mustard labels.

The artist has had support from various DJ´s, such as:
Slam, Nic Fanciulli, Moussa Clarke, Wyndell Long, James Grindle, Graham Gold amongst others.

EPISODE 84: Airwave presents Lolo – Travel The World In 10 Minutes (Green Martian)

A true activist in Electronic music of all kinds for well over 15 years, Belgian Airwave’s discography counts more than 250 records and dozens of remixes, many of them being supported by the biggest names of the industry. Genius Composer and Performer, the man’s imprint on the scene is remarkable.

Hit by surprise by a virus called Electronic Dance music, Laurent developed his knowledge of music and technology in Parallel until his first demos saw the light of day in may of 1995. 1996 saw him release his first tracks on the infamous Bonzai imprint, but that is 1998 that saw him grow up and become the progressive trance artist we know today, with the release of his first Airwave record, I want to Believe, immediately picked up by UK’s own Sasha and Oakenfold, and later on by up and coming youngster Tiësto, gaining popularity as much as he was playing Laurent’s records. The same can be said about the whole dutch trance scene, in which Laurent’s records were and still are omnipresent.

That is how Laurent developed his DJ and performer’s career from back then, having several gigs worldwide, from Tokyo to San Francisco, from Auckland, NZ to Toronto, and from Manchester to Athens. Hundreds of gigs saw him perform at the world’s biggest clubs of those times, Slinky, Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, The Gallery, 1015, Dopler in Bratislava, and many others, all of them had the chance to welcome Laurent Airwave one day, if not several times, which proves that you don’t need to overcommercialize your music to get rewarded all around the world.

«Everyday is full of new challenges, and limits only exist into the human brain» are Airwave’s words of wisdom for every single day. Don’t limit the man to a single genre, as his 15 years in the business gave him the ability to execute any style of music with a true sense of perfection and achievement.

EPISODE 85: Sound Profession – In The City (Eyepatch Recordings)

Eyepatch does it again. This time with Sound Profession and a k-hole deep release titled In The City. Glamourous chilled out tune, perfect for your jazzy lounge breaks needs. But it’s not all about this track. In fact, theres another three originals in this pack, 10 Pounds, Runaway and Down My Way. All tracks in a deep and funky House fashion with plenty of groove and soul.

EPISODE 86: Beatblenderz – Loaded (From A Groove) (Eyepatch Recordings)

What do You get when You put two highly talented Dj’s together. DJ Alexis Pattersun with his pure and groovy musical choice and DJ Zohm and his 3 decades of own developing turntable techniques and a wide range of music experiences. Meanwhile those “wheels of steel freaks” deliver more rhythmical extra’s than You ever absorbed before, and this without the loss or forgetting the warmness and originallity that electronic music can express. They are known for building more than just a regular party, every night is another story, a souvenir , a sound and loop collage of the finest.

EPISODE 87: Daniel Ray – Honesty (Eyepatch Recordings)

Daniel Ray van Zyl aka Placid Larry has been DJing since 1999. Beginning his career in his native South Africa, Daniel has held residencies in Jo’Burg – better known as Johannesburg – and in Tshwane – better known as Pretoria – before setting his sights on the UK club scene, where he held residencies in London, Brixton and Southampton.

After a brief stint home, he moved to Bahrain where he has held a residency in premier restaurant and lounge “Zoe” for the past two and a half years.

For the past five years, Daniel has been honing his skills as a producer. His unique chilled house and down tempo electronica and chill out sound has seen his tracks being released on the renowned Lemon Grass Music label. Daniel continues to produce deep melodic soundscapes filled with thought and emotion, stemming straight from his heart.

EPISODE 88: Aiemo feat. Sandra Hakky – Dreaming Eyes (Bonzai Elemental)

The 28-year-old Danish/Italian artist is born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired by the pulsating, urban and unique atmosphere of Copenhagen, David Nicosia Longhi has produced and published under various pseudonyms such as “Mazenga” and “Aiemo”. Ranging from deep, minimal psytrance to chillout and melodic lounge music.

David himself describes the importance of inspiration gathered from the fast paced citylife: “I love living in the city – there are endless inspirational options, ranging all the way from high-end fashion, cocktailbars, nightlife in general and even the modern oasis areas in Copenhagen, filled with peace and calm energy.I also like the anonymous feeling found in a big city. You could be surrounded by 100s of people and still feel like no one is seeing you. I generally get inspired from beautiful people around me and the desire to make and do something that touches the heart and thought of a human in combination with the electronically produced music. I want to keep living my daydream and my music reflects this.”

Practical Inspiration has been gathered from both the trance/balearic scene throughout the 90’s all the way to the downtempo and chilled lounge scene in modern time.

EPISODE 89: Brett Lawrence – Behind The Wire (Piston Recordings)

It’s been almost 15 years since Brett Lawrence emerged on the UK scene as a DJ, producer and now label owner. Over the years Brett has proven that it’s not just his music that makes him such a valuable asset to the house music community but his total dedication to the cause. Whether organizing events or discovering new talent for his label.

Brett first caught the vinyl bug at the age of 14. He began buying early house and techno records and by the age of 16 his ability behind the decks landed him gigs at a number of local clubs and residencies at some of the south coasts best-known nightspots.

In 1998 Brett relocated to Southampton. During this time, Brett was DJing and clubbing all over the country, making connections and building up a solid network of DJs and artists, which led to the inevitable formation of his booking agency Tweak UK in 2003. A move to London in 2004 opened yet another chapter in Brett’s musical career. A wealth of new music and influences saw Brett start to experiment with deeper tech house sounds; something that was later conveyed in his production work.

In 2009 Brett established, the now thriving, Assembly Records. For Brett, it’s always been a question of choosing uncompromising artists who possess a unique and original voice – an attitude that defines his own.
