RECENT POSTS: Bonzai 20 Years
That’s right! Beatport News got hold of Marnik Braeckevelt and did this nice interview about our 20th anniversary!
“Founded in 1992, Bonzai Records grew to be one of the world’s most unstoppable trance and progressive labels, spawning countless classics and kick-starting the careers of many artists in the game today. Bonzai Records itself was greatly responsible for defining the sounds of trance and progressive during the ’90s, and currently has shifted sounds in a direction matching the evolution of dance music itself.
With a 20-year celebration around the corner, we took some time to give a nod to one of the most influential labels by having a quick chat with Marnik Braeckevelt, a figure behind the label and a pioneer of the Belgian dance music scene at large.”
