DOFAMINE – FOR MY LOVE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The impressive Dofamine returns to Bonzai Progressive with another serving of top notch progressive beats. For My Love is topped off with three stand out remixes from Blufeld, Audio Noir and Jakhira and is a definite must have track for your progressive house arsenal.

Swirling pads and subtle percussions provide the intro on the Original Mix creating a rich atmospheric vibe. Chunky kick drums come through and take over delivering a nice solid warm punch. You feel yourself drawn to the groove as those pads get stuck in your head while a superb deep bassline bubbles up from the depths. A calming melody descends on the sound as that probing bass cuts through the mids and high frequencies. A track with many sides, this one breeds intensity and serenity all in one epic take, brilliant stuff.

Blufeld turns up for remix duty with his Intoxicating Remix, and once again we are blown away with his sound. Blufeld’s craftsmanship in making music is second to none, he calls on years of experience in electronic music and is able to turn his hand to many styles. Always a pleasure to have his work drop into the office. The remix opens with a pulsing percussion and sublime pad before a monster kick drum crashes in to dominate and drive the track on its progressive course. As the pads create beautiful melodies a fantastic energy driven bassline weaves its way through the sound creating a wonderfully contrasted sound with hints of trance. The break throws up a stunning breaks sequence against a wall of perfectly tweaked sounds before we’re slammed right back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Audio Noir returns on remix duties with Another Audio Noir Trip. One of the hardest working artists around, this guy puts his heart and soul into all he produces. Over the last number of years he has become synonymous with mashing many genres and styles of music into well polished progressive constructions. On top of this he delves into breaks and wonderful atmospheric sounds. Great to have him on board as always. This Trip begins with a punchy kick drum and a nice reverbed snare while cool percussions start to form up into a steady rhythmic flow. Dark synth chords come into play and set the mood alongside surreal pads. The chords and pads generate a brilliant intense atmosphere charged with expertly crafted melodies as a deep probing bass hypnotizes throughout sitting perfectly within the groove. Mesmeric vocals ring out and add a beautiful colourful texture to the sound. Yet again we’re treated to some simply awesome sounds from Audio Noir, enjoy this trip.

Jakhira is a popular name around the scene and this is down to the pure quality of his productions and the fact that he’s a nice guy also, but mainly for his outstanding contribution to progressive in general. His productions regularly feature in many sets and have been peaking on charts at top download portals all over the net. Here he delivers his Unconditional Mix and proves once more just what a top notch artist he is. The remix intros with a nice chunky kick and crispy hi hat combo before being joined by some very cool percussions and a warming pad that creates a deep and smooth groove. A meandering bassline enters the arrangement and gives off a wonderfully smooth vibe that takes us deeper into the groove. Darker progressive house elements come through that grab a hold of your imagination, on the break you find yourself totally hooked on the melodies and allow yourself to be lost in the sound. A beautifully serene and captivating slice, perfect for late night and early morning beach parties.

AUDIO NOIR – FROM LONDON TO MOSCOW – REMIXES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Almost 8 months on from the release of his album Artificial Star, Australia’s Audio Noir sets out his stall once more and invites four top quality remixers to do their thing with his track From London To Moscow. The original version delivered a solid progressive house groove and we’ve no doubt that these four remixes will do that justice. Vince Aoun is up first on remix duties with his unique twist on the original. Lebanese DJ and producer Vince was last seen round these parts back in November 2015 with his Bonzai Progressive debut Lilium. Since then he has seen his work released on Vandit Records and Melodika Music as well as appearances on our WMC 2016 compilation and Afterhour Trax 19 on Green Martian. The remix opens with a muted kick drum that is cloaked by some crispy bright hats. The beat dissipates to reveal a warm lush bass tone as a cool arp rises up. Sultry vocals ring out and suddenly we’re lashed with a monstrous breaks pattern complete with a powerful kick and snappy snares. The drums are super tight here and will certainly cause a commotion on the floors. As we get lost in the breaks and 80’2 styled rolls a delicious acid riff courses through the sound alongside gritty basses. Top notch stuff from Vince that you do not want to miss.

Quantus aka Volkan Erman & Dimi Douglas returns to the remix desk with another of his top notch efforts. Last time out we got a dosing of his superb talents on remix duty for Nico Parisi’s Raklet before teaming up with Findike on Deep Connection. On the remix we get a taste of the sheer quality coming out of this guys studio. A classic punchy kick and hi hat combi graces the intro alongside hypnotic percussions that set up a flowing rhythm. Cool vocals are scattered throughout and deliver a mysterious edge to the sound. Deep droning basses carry the groove nicely and are accompanied by dirty synths and basses. The break reveals a more melodic side to the sound as a soothing vocal rings out complete with superb FX bringing some very cool textures into the groove. A definite must have track that will delight any set.

Blufeld is up next on the remix with his Long Distance Rework and once again we see why this guy remains a firm favourite. Since September 2015 when we saw his last cut, this guy remained very busy indeed in the studio. After a few remixes he teamed up with Platunoff to deliver Tiefe Gedanken which quickly gathered pace and saw great support from across the board. Always an exciting time when this guy drops by and no doubt there will be much more to come. The remix intros with some very cool FX that fade away to reveal a powerful kickdrum and rattling bass combi as bright open hats feed through. The stuttering synths create a superbly colourful melody that grabs a hold of you and carries you along for the ride. As the layers build we find more and more melodics creep in to the sound resulting in a very impressive progressive groove. On the break we are transported back in time with a wonderful gated synth that dishes out a mesmerizing pattern before we are slammed right back into full on mode. A simply stunning slice of prog that will be at the top of many sets no doubt.

Ruslan Vashkevich rounds up this impressive remix pack with a superb chill remix. Taking a bit of a side step from his usual progressive vibes, Ruslan enters the world of chill and does so with a flurry of panache and surrealism. His last outing – Perfect Choice saw support from a lot of top jocks and we’ve no doubt that this side step into chilldom will follow suit. The remix opens with a fading in, haunting sound that opens up into an expertly layered pad. Deeper elements make their way into the soundscape as various FX add colour to the sound. A surreal arp cascades up and down creating a sublime space type vibe. Intermittent bass drops raise the intensity as those arps dominate the sound before fading away to reveal a cacophony of bells that play us out. A wonderfully creative piece that will give your imagination something to think about.

BLUFELD & PLATUNOFF – TIEFE GEDANKEN FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Prolific artists Blufeld and Platunoff join forces as they both return to Bonzai Progressive after a short hiatus with the superb Tiefe Gedanken which also comes backed up with two quality remixes from Nico Parisi and Alex Vidal. We last saw Blufeld back towards the end of 2015 with Out Of This Life which came shortly after his superb studio album A World Less Ordinary. Some big things in the pipeline with this guy so make sure you keep up to date with all his goings on via social media and of course the Bonzai Progressive website. Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff also returns with a quality remix and his last outing was on remix duties for Blufeld’s Out Of This Life. Great to see both of these diverse artists back at the helm and we hope they collaborate more in the future.

BLUFELD & PLATUNOFF – TIEFE GEDANKEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Prolific artists Blufeld and Platunoff join forces as they both return to Bonzai Progressive after a short hiatus with the superb Tiefe Gedanken which also comes backed up with two quality remixes from Nico Parisi and Alex Vidal. We last saw Blufeld back towards the end of 2015 with Out Of This Life which came shortly after his superb studio album A World Less Ordinary. Some big things in the pipeline with this guy so make sure you keep up to date with all his goings on via social media and of course the Bonzai Progressive website. Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff also returns with a quality remix and his last outing was on remix duties for Blufeld’s Out Of This Life. Great to see both of these diverse artists back at the helm and we hope they collaborate more in the future.

The Original Mix opens with a smooth almost dreamy sequence complete with swirling pads and playful melodics alongside a building percussion arrangement. A subtle bass appears and steers the track toward the deeper side before superb punchy kick drums come in. The track settles into a solid prog groove that becomes filled with subtle melodies and cool FX. The bass is a truly hypnotic experience that is enhanced by those tight drums, this one is a definite must have for those late night sessions.

Nico Parisi returns with a top quality remix which comes fresh off the back of his recent remix of Thorin’s Dreaming of A Better World which appeared on the massive Bonzai & Friends – 500 (Remixes). No doubt we’ll be seeing more in the coming months from this hugely talented artist, so stay tuned. On the remix Nico opens with a punchy kick drum with a subtle synth arp chasing in the background. Percussions start to form up and we soon find ourselves drawn to the groove. The progressive vibes on offer really shine through as a deep droning bass takes over the low end while up top a myriad of melodies take charge and steer the track in a hypnotic direction. A real nice slice of prog here that is not to be missed.

The ever impressive Alex Vidal steps up to remix duties and delivers another one of his sublime progressive cuts. His last outing for BP was also on remix duties, this time on LoQuai’s Numans Prayer on Bonzai & Friends – 500 (Remixed). Much more to come from this guy in the future, well worth keeping an eye and an ear on. Alex’s remix intros with a punchy kick drum that sits over a dreamy pad sequence complete with swirling FX and subtle melodies. A deep, probing bassline fades in and soon takes control of the groove as it drives the track forward. Cool spacey vibes ooze out of the sound as the intensity rises. On the break we get drawn deeper into the vibe with a series of melodic pads and a tight percussion keep us going before getting slammed right back into full on mode. One for the deeper darker progressive sets here that will not disappoint.

BLUFELD – OUT OF THIS LIFE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Blufeld is back with another cut entitled Out Of This Life which is taken from his recently released 4th studio album A World Less Ordinary. Very exciting times for this guy and he doesn’t seem to be letting up. With the album just out this new cut and its superb 3 remixes gives you a deeper insight into Blufeld’s world. Always worth keeping an eye out for this guy as he never disappoints.
The Original Mix of Out Of This Life straddles the prog house-trance borderline with a slight leaning towards trance. We are faced with an expertly crafted construction filled with driving beats and fantastic synth play. The bass line is where it’s at here though, a multi layered approach ensures an energetic ride which bonds perfectly with the sweeping pads and strings on the higher end. Cool melodies float across the sound and bring home that euphoric touch with a hypnotic edge. A tasty Autumn treat for us all.

First up on remix duty we have Audio Noir with his Rekonstruction, all the way from down under. This guy has become a very much recognisable force on the scene, but he shrouds himself in mystery by not revealing his identity. He has however given a few interviews which can be found online, these rare glimpses give an insight into the man behind the music, but not the face in front of the man so don’t be disappointed there is no big reveal, anyway, to the music. The remix intros with a cool percussive driven arrangement that is soon joined by a nice punchy kick and some tight drums to get the rhythm flowing. Sweet melodic synths etch out cool patterns that provide a colourful sound. A deep, relentlessly probing bass line follows and takes over the sound beautifully which gives some cool contrasting textures. The break reveals a superb vocal that comes as a pleasant surprise full of retro flavour. The track gets back into full swing with a tough, gritty bass sound joining the party. Top notch stuff yet again that is not to be missed.

Platunoff aka Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff shows up on remix duty and takes us deep into the progressive abyss. While this will be his first outing on a single release for Bonzai Progressive, he did make an appearance on Club Traxx Breaks 3 back in May 2015 with no less than three tracks including his own, From Chelyabinsk To Moscow as well as two top notch remixes. Here he takes us on a sublime journey that starts out with a cool drums and percussion intro that soon gets a boost from a nice chunky kick. Bright synth shots add a smooth melodic flavour to the sound as a contrastingly deep throbbing bass takes us into the depths. Crystal clear synth riffs light up the sound as the lower end gains intensity and takes us to the break where the bass is king before we get right back into full on mode. Brilliant stuff from this guy and a must have track.

The impressive Ruslan Vashkevich delivers his super solid mix that delves deep into progressive house. His last outing for Bonzai Progressive, Thought The Smoke gained a lot of attention and featured heavily on top portals and sets. With four releases already at BP, this guy certainly knows how to deliver the quality. Here he brings the tempo down a notch and settles us into a wonderful progressive house flow that locks you in for the duration. Nice chunky kicks and subtle percussions allow the driving bass line to stand out, and stand out it does. The bass just sits perfectly within the sound and draws you in with its mesmerising pull. Cool synths sit nicely over the bass as tight drums form up to deliver a smooth rhythmic flow. Fantastic effort from this talented artist and we look forward to much more in the future.

BLUFELD – A WORLD LESS ORDINARY FEATURED BY BEATPORT

One of Bonzai’s most prolific artists, Blufeld delivers his 4th artist album – A World Less Ordinary. We’ve already had a peek into this stunning piece of work when Threlkeld and A World Less Ordinary were released not too long ago as singles. We had a quick chat with David just after the album’s completion, which took around 15 months. He draws a lot of influence from the early roots of the trance sound, a sound in which he incorporates into a progressive moulding. Airwave aka Laurent Veronnez and the late great Quadran aka Philippe Van Mullem still provide a lot of inspiration for him in the music he produces. The album in general was intended to create a mysterious feeling throughout but it is also designed to take the listener into a non conforming world where they can make their own rules. A hugely impressive back catalogue is a testament to the commitment and the drive shown by David, his Bonzai repertoire contains a wealth of mouth-watering, floor shaking grooves that have found their way into many sets over the years. David also runs his own label, Actuate which features the very best progressive trance and tech trance from a wide range of talented artists including several of his own aliases. Progmospherica Sessions is David’s monthly showcase where you will get the chance to listen to some of the finest grooves around, well worth checking out. As an added treat we are gearing for a special album, due in 2016, which will be filled with nothing but super chilled out remixes of a selection of Blufeld’s work, we can’t wait for this one to drop.
