LUNAKID – EPIC (BONZAI ELEMENTAL)

Berlin based artist Lunakid debuts on Bonzai Elemental with the cool and smooth vibes of Epic which features two superb remixes by the impressive Volta Cab. Lunakid has been electrifying people since 2012 with his brand of electronica, techno and punk. He has seen his music released on the likes of Klinik Room, Record Union and Ego Shot. The Original Mix of Epic opens with a fading in pad that creates a rich atmospheric sound which is soon joined by other ebbing and flowing sounds. A thick punchy kick drum delivers a breaks style beat that compliments the evolving soundscape beautifully. The track picks up an ethnic vibe along the way which is filled with melodies and enchanting voices. Wonderful stuff.

SKYIO – EXOPLANET (BONZAI ELEMENTAL)

Russian producer Starodumov Vladimir aka Skyio debuts on Bonzai Elemental with the tripped out vibes of Exoplanet. Ever since he was a child, Starodumov loved to get a closer look at how things worked, he stripped equipment down and explored sound by tweaking knobs just to see what they would do. He studied piano at music school which gave him the skills to hunt down and refine new melodies. In today’s modern processes of music-making this knowledge has gave him a greater understanding of music which he then transforms into his own compositions. He got his first release on Freedom Recordings in 2009 and gained a lot of attention with his fresh approach and in 2011 he released on Only One Records which got great support on radio shows and DJ sets alike. A highly gifted artist we hope to see more from in the future.
