DARKO DE JAN – REFLECTIONS EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dubai based DJ and producer Darko De Jan debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Reflections EP. A very much established artist, this guy has seen a plethora of releases on various labels over the years. He is the resident DJ at The 27th Floor Bar at the prestigious Burj Al Arab. Previously he held a 5 year residency at the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa. All this was achieved through hard work and dedication. In 2009 he started to focus on music production where he crafted his cutting edge sound through a fusion of genres. Darko De Jan boasts a large support base around the world including the likes of Erick Morillo, Steve Angelo, Steve Lawler, Danny Howells, Felix Da Housecat, Roger Sanchez, Sasha, Digweed and Pete Tong to name just a few. Delighted to have him on board and we’ve no doubt his sound will grab your attention.

Darko De Jan explores the intricacies of techno with Reflections. From start to finish we are drawn into and captivated by this solid mover. Deep bubbling basses rise from the depths while a tight drum arrangement sets the rhythm loose. The break unleashes a sublime synth sequence as a playful arp dances through the sound. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Silent Mayhem goes deep into progressive with a sublime effort full of beautifully crafted synths and a wonderfully rhythmic groove. A deep purring bassline wraps us up in a warmth that won’t let got while stabbing synths break through the low frequencies. A high string adds tension as the layers build all around alongside cool vocals that give the track a darker character. Superb stuff that is not to be missed.

HEYSPACE – GIAGUARO (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian artist Heyspace debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Giaguaro which comes backed up with two superb remixes. Heyspace is a young and ambitious electronic musician who grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia – a city bursting with creativity from those who live in it. Spending his formative years in a cultural centre of such calibre helped him form his own style of music. Co-operating with leaders of modern electronic music culture, participating in dance festivals and charity concerts brought this young musician to the attention of the world. Combining new electronic technologies with classical methods of musical energy, Heyspace stays true to his mission of giving the audience particles of joy and happiness in every song. Already he has seen several releases on top labels and now we welcome him to Bonzai.

The Original Mix packs a punch as it straddles the thin line between tech house and deep house creating a solid hybrid perfect for any late night set. Chunky kicks lead the way while bright crispy hats and shuffling percussions add weight to the rhythm. Deep vocal shots add character while deeper synths create a classy groove. Simplistic and highly effective this one is a must have.

IFIR aka Ilyas Fors debuts on Bonzai Progressive with a stunning remix. DJing since 2005 and producing since 2015, Ilyas brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. Based in St. Petersburg he has been prominent in the local music scene for many years having won DJ competitions and gaining notoriety among his peers. He turns his hand to several styles of music with each representing his creative side flawlessly. On the remix here IFIR goes straight for the deep house jugular. Nice, warm house fuelled chords greet us on the intro alongside nice punchy kick drums and cool FX. The rhythm picks up as the percussions come through and we’re locked on for the duration. The subtle bassline lurks on the low end allowing the track to deliver lower frequencies from other areas which creates a real smooth deep house groove. Excellent stuff that is not to be missed.

Rutger debuts on Bonzai Progressive on remix duties and delivers a superb cut for our listening pleasure. Producing since 2015 he has seen a few quality releases on several labels. A talented artist who will be one to watch for the future no doubt. Rutger delivers a solid tech house joint here which will certainly translate well on the floors. Right from the off we get drawn to the upbeat nature from this one. A solid drum arrangement led by a punchy kick drum and crispy hat combo takes hold before some very cool FX and a hypnotic tones come through. Distant synths add wonderful textures as well as that deep and powerful vocal. A subtle bassline keeps the low end interesting and on the break we’re treated to a sublime pad sequence before slamming back into full on mode. A top notch slice that will not disappoint.

AIRWAVE – AMBER SKY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Musical genius Airwave returns to Bonzai Progressive for 2017 with the delectable Amber Sky which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. As always we’re blown away by this guy’s brilliance, he manages to bring that WOW factor to everything he touches, his productions remain consistently of a very high standard which will continue for a very long time. 2016 was another big year for Laurent Veronnez, he ramped up his DJ profile with gigs all over the world and solidifying his stance among his army of fans. His last outing Pray For Happiness on JOOF Recordings gained a lot of support and we’ve no doubt that this one will follow suit.

Amber Sky delivers a beautifully constructed simplistic track that packs a massive punch. Airwave’s trademark pumping kick drums lead the charge before a deep and lush rumbling bassline enters to the backdrop of mysterious layered FX. An intensity creeps in as the track builds while a calming pad fills the background. The lead melody comes through and marries perfectly to the changing notes of the bassline. The break dishes out a wonderful soundscape filled with rich pads and droning bass that fade off leaving a tempo increasing build up before slamming right back into the main track for the duration. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.

Basil O’Glue aka Greek DJ and producer Haris Vasiloglou is up first on remix duties and, after appearing on a few compilations for us in the past, this one marks his Bonzai Progressive debut. Having honed his musical taste through listening to many different styles he discovered that he had a penchant for electronic music. Through hard work and devotion he started to produce his own music and he found himself releasing on labels such as Coldharbour, Saturate Audio, Afterglow and Armada to name just a few. The remix intros with a proper oldskool progressive vibe that offers a deep warmth to the sound as throbbing bassline makes its way through. Beautifully crafted FX and a tight drum arrangement deliver a solid rhythm while floating subtle melodies come in. We are soon embroiled in a more contemporary euphoric sound as wide pads and big synths are introduced. A seriously banging track that is a definite must have.

Jamie Baggotts returns with another top notch remix. His last effort was on remix duties for Platunoff’s Primavera which proved popular among many. With a slew of top quality cuts under his belt here at BP, Jamie is establishing himself as a solid artist and very much in demand. Lots more to come from this guy no doubt so keep an eye and an ear on him. On the remix here we set off with huge pounding kick drums accompanied by crispy hats and a bubbling bassline. In the background mysterious pads shimmer as an intensity starts to build. The bassline transforms into a powerful rolling pattern while melodic synths fade in. The break offers a short respite where we’re treated to a beautiful array of sounds that contrast between the low and high frequencies before slamming back into full on mode. Not to be missed.

KEVIN VEGA – CRIMSON KING (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

The ever impressive Kevin Vega returns to Bonzai Progressive to get us up and running for 2017 with the superb three tracker The Crimson King. A stalwart on the scene Kevin’s work is highly respected and always appreciated. His last outing for BP was back in the Summer of 2016 on remix duties for Manu Riga’s Surrounded Remixed which proved very popular indeed among many. He also featured on our ADE 2016 compilation as well as many other compilations over the years. Always a pleasure to have this guy’s work drop into the mailbox and we always look forward to more.

The Crimson King opens with a beautifully crafted intricate percussion filled pattern that is soon joined by a chunky kick drum. We settle into the groove nicely here as a powerful deep rumbling bass is introduced. Warm synths accompany the bass as we’re drawn deeper into the groove by those hypnotic drums. In the background a rich pad starts to rise creating a melodic vein through the track and forming a wonderful contrast to the tougher edged deeper sounds. A stunningly simple yet diverse track that will grab your attention, a definite must have.

Wayan intros with a nice chunky kick drum and subtle hi hat combi as various percussions make their way through. A steady flowing rhythm forms up and we are locked in for the duration. The layers build nice and smooth and take us to a fantastic bassline that drops on the beat creating a very intense groove. Beautifully crafted melodic arps fade in and blend effortlessly into the maelstrom of low end bass. On the break those melodies dominate, drawing us in deeper before that powerful kick and bass combo returns for more. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.

Finishing off this fantastic pack we have Seraphim which delivers a solid progressive house groove throughout. We’re drawn into this one right from the off as chunky kicks are joined by shuffling hats and a mixture of stabbing strings and cool piano chords. A deep raucous bassline comes through and dominates with a strong hand tying the track together beautifully. The intensity rises and becomes tangible as the layers build. On the break we’re offered a short respite and treated to a pulsing note before being thrust back into the main groove. Excellent stuff once again from Mr Vega, this one is not to be missed.

First up we have Hypnagogia with its deep brooding tones and superb nostalgic vocals that deliver an intriguing narrative throughout. Big chunky beats lead the way here and are backed up by a tight drum arrangement that offers a steady flowing rhythm. A deep rumbling bassline dominates the low frequencies and marries perfectly with those raw vocals. Cool synth hooks litter the sound giving a cosmic vibe to the proceedings making this a definite must have track for your arsenal.

Introspection sets out with a nice bright, sharp snare hit alongside various hats and cymbals before being joined by a punchy kick drum and deep lush bass. The drum section builds nicely creating a solid rhythmic mover as the groove intensifies with the addition of some seriously tough synths. Cool melodic arpeggios cascade through the sound while sinister vocals creep in. The break offers a surreal respite from the toughness of the main track before we get slammed right back into full on mode. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Excellent stuff that will not disappoint.

Manu Riga is back once again with another one of his top notch remixes and, once again we are blown away by this guy’s superb talent. Belgian music maestro Adriaan Baussens is now a household name in the music production world, he has gained an army of followers over the years and is still reaching out to new recruits with every release. His talent lies in perfecting everything he touches which translates to those who simply appreciate “good music”. Here he shoots straight to the floors with a beautifully constructed progressive slice. Nice and chunky kick drums lead the way while crispy hi hats and shuffling percussions create a solid rhythm. A hypnotic vox loiters in the background as a prominent arpeggio delivers the lead sound. Throbbing basses deliver that pure prog vibe that keeps you hooked throughout. Simply stunning stuff that is a definite must have for any jock.

The track takes on a real deepness early on which is further enhanced by the stunning vocals from Mandy.
