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.

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.

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.

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.
