BONZAI & FRIENDS WEBSITE IS NOW ONLINE!

With the second release of our Bonzai & Friends compilations we decided to create a dedicated website for it, www.bonzaiandfriends.com, where you can now follow all the info regarding the projects! Bonzai & Friends’ second instalment is a celebration of 2 decades of music of one of the world’s most renowned, pioneering labels Bonzai Progressive – formerly Bonzai Trance Progressive. As we approach our 500th release we decided to create something that will go down in the history books and stand as a showcase to what we have become over the years. We’ve enlisted the talents of an army of top notch producers to help us along the way and these artists have been tasked to create 50 brand new tracks and remixes, tracks that will only be found on this exclusive celebration compilation.

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.

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.

The album opens with Introspective, an injection of breezy uplifting melodies over an equally upbeat breakbeat drum arrangement. This combination is the perfect tonic for starting a brand new day and delivers a sense of euphoria that enhances a feel good factor which becomes infectious as the track unfolds. From here we are taken into the progressive bulk of the album starting with the title track, A World Less Ordinary which takes us on a beautiful journey into the progressive sound with a wonderful driving bassline on top of a tight drum arrangement. The attention to detail is sublime with sweeping pads and FX creating textured layers that blend effortlessly. As the track reaches its peak we are locked into an intricate web of melodies that just seem to flow into our minds with ease. The break gives those melodies their chance to shine with a superb synth hook that climaxes with us getting shoved right back into the main groove.

Scheduled for release in late September 2015, Out Of This Life straddles the prog house-trance borderline with a slight leaning towards trance. Again we are faced with an expertly crafted construction filled with driving beats and fantastic synth play. The bassline 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.

Glenderamakin is a deep and grooving progressive cut that will send your imagination into overdrive with thought provoking sounds and patterns. A surreal and reflective kinda vibe oozes out of this track, the deep bass meanders along and draws you in with ease as subtle melodies tease leaving us wanting more. A late night track that will definitely grab the attention of many.

Around this time last year was when we got our first snippet of what this album would be about with the release of Threlkeld with its smooth drum led intro with dreamy pads fading in from behind beautifully. The kicks evolve brilliantly into a nice and punchy hit as the bassline begins to drive the track forward and giving that purely progressive house feeling to the sound. The track has a nice organic feel to it and is contrasted perfectly with sweet melodic flavours coming off the synths and pads. Another fine slice from this guy which was very well received indeed.

The Vivid Unknown is up next sets us on course with a trek deep into the progressive sound once again. The intro boasts a nice punchy kick and an almost muted tribal drum construction as cool crispy hats begin to show. The bassline runs deep here and is the perfect platform for the track to unleash an array of sweeping synths that add so much texture. The break delivers a fine display of tweaking as those synths are transformed into a kaleidoscope of sound that hooks you in. Superb stuff you will not want to miss.

At the midway point of the album we run into the first of five wonderfully chilled tracks that evoke all kinds of feelings and arouse various senses. The deep and lush tones of Tulgey Tales with its contrastingly beautiful melodic sequences and super tight drums opens up this world of chill which is broken for a moment by the equally lush and ubiquitous vibes of progressive trancer Jubjub’s Invincible Wings. A cool blend of sounds creating an uplifting groove with a traditional feel about it that conjures up evocative and vivid memories. From here we head back into chilldom with Equivocal Mind that is a purely mesmerizing track filled to the brim with the kind of sounds that allow your mind to drift away from reality for just a few short minutes. Coming out of this state we are faced with the uplifting grooves of Memoirs Of A Mountain which delivers a solid prog workout complete with a deep droning bass and superb melodic structure. We are eased into the end of the album with three chilled grooves starting with Emotional Tentacles and its sweeping pads that lead up to a brilliant gated synth that offers a cool twist to an otherwise soft sound. Without A Trace follows and takes us deeper with a warm bass tone and smooth beats that weave intricate patterns ass they go. This track gathers pace as the signature changes with some expert tweaking and wonderful synths that light up the sound beautifully. Rounding off this awesome album we have Gone For Long which is a simple and subtle arrangement of melodies and soft beats, the absolute perfect end to a fantastic journey that will leave you stunned and wanting more.
