ALEXEY LISIN featuring AVES VOLARE – FUNNY DAY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Alexey Lisin serves up his next tasty treat on BP with Funny Day featuring stunning vocals from Aves Volare. This will be Alexey’s 4th Bonzai Progressive release working with different vocalists and judging by the previous cuts we know we’re in for some top quality sounds indeed.

The Original Mix delivers a real solid slice of progressive house with a superb 80’s vibe rocking right throughout the sound, from the synths to the bassline and a swinging drum section, this one will definitely fill the floors. The vocal stands out beautifully and is the main component that gives the track that wonderful new romantic groove. Top notch as always and a definite must have track.

Australia’s Audio Noir is back with Another Audio Noir Safari and shows us once more his top notch remix skills in action. His last outing was back in December 2015 with a remix pack of his track Your Love which featured Lokka Vox on vocals. The remix sets off with a cool percussion driven arrangement with warm synths bringing up the rear as a droning bass fades in. We get a taste of the wonderful new romantic styled vocals as the layers build. Cool pitching synths come through and take the track to the next level before we head into the break where an awesome electric guitar riff takes over and solidifying the prog groove that oozes out of the sound. A floorfiller for sure here, not to be missed.

Dennis Franchi shows up next on remix duties and delivers a superb slice for the floors. We last caught a glimpse of Dennis under his House Lovin Criminals guise for a remix on Matan Caspi & Roy Lebens’ Klubnichka back in September 2015. The remix takes us on a cool tech house ride filled with tight beats and a fantastic vocal. Warm chords are met with a bright rhythmic workout dished out by crispy hats and punchy kick drums. The bassline delivers a smooth funky groove that provides the perfect backdrop for the tech fuelled sound. A proper slice of house music for the floors.

Hungarian producer Paul Kardos serves up his Breathing Mix and gives us a superb deep and grooving progressive workout. Last time out Paul was on remix duty for Mendexx’s Deceptive Minds in November 2015. On the remix Paul takes us deeper into a progressive deep house hybrid sound that hypnotizes and mesmerizes. Big chunky kicks are joined by cool crispy shuffling hats and claps to provide a steady flowing rhythm. A deep meandering bassline walks across the groove effortlessly and draws you in with its warm glow. Subtle chords fill out the background as those cool vocals keep the groove deep. A must have track that will keep those late night sessions rocking.

SAM LAXTON – NO NEED TO PRETEND (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Sam Laxton debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two tracker, No Need To Pretend. Since his emergence in 2012 this guy has attracted quite a lot of attention. His tracks have gained support from the likes of Paul Van Dyk and Solarstone among others. He already boasts an impressive release count on labels such as Philosophy Recordings, Starblocks Music and Black Hole Recordings to name just a few. Great to have this guy on board at BP with his brand of progressive that will appeal to many no doubt.

No Need To Pretend goes straight into a full on rip roaring groove right from the off. Nice punchy kicks are joined by a tight percussion arrangement that delivers a solid rhythmic flow to the sound. A pulsating bassline drives the track alongside some retro styled chord stabs and takes us up to the break where we are met with sharp plucks and a deep droning bass. With a hint of psy creeping in to the sound the break climaxes and we are thrust back into the melodic techno workout. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Once Upon A Time dishes out a tight progressive groove as punchy kicks and crispy hats join forces alongside a fantastic pitching bassline that is the main driving force on the track. Tight percussions do a fine job and keep the rhythm flowing as cool FX go off in the background. On the break we are treated to some real nice plucky melodies that lock us in for the ride before we get slammed back into the main track for the duration. A definite must have track on this fine debut from Sam.

MATAN CASPI – CELEBRIUM (RISE AND FALL REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Rise and Fall is up next on the remix and once more we are blown away by the talent on offer from this guy. He has given us some fine progressive cuts over the years and he never fails to deliver. His last outing Open System proved popular among many which is a testament to his contribution to the scene. The remix intros with a cool muted kick and a great warping bass alongside an array of surreal FX and sounds. A subtle melodic arp fades through and stands out in contrast to the deeper sounds around. The drums layer up nicely with a cool rhythmic vibe that will transform easily to the floors. A solid progressive groove ensues with sweeping synths and risers taking us to the break where we enter a deeper abyss before getting thrust back into the main groove for the duration. Another fine example from Rise and Fall, not to be missed.

LONG GARDEN AVENUE – LOVELIGHT EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Long Garden Avenue is the brainchild of Adriaan Baussens aka Belgian musician, composer, DJ and producer Manu Riga. LGA first came into existence back in 2005 when Adriaan was transitioning between house and progressive. His intention was and still is, to keep his music open to movement between genres and LGA is his vehicle into a more deep house sound. This full release debut entitled Lovelight EP is a collaboration between Adriaan, his good friend Matt Holliday and the stunning vocalist Sam Zeito. This one is a change of direction for Matt as he normally resides over epic progressive cuts, much like Manu. His last outing for Bonzai Progressive – Pipe Dream – proved popular among many and found its way into many sets and charts. Lots more coming from Matt, always worth keeping an eye on. Long Garden Avenue has a story to tell and you can check out our website for an in-depth write up on the man behind the music.

Long Garden Avenue has a story to tell and you can check out our website for an in-depth write up on the man behind the music.

Lovelight intros with nice and smooth laidback groovy kinda vibe before a throaty vocal introduces a tight drum arrangement complete with punchy kicks and a smooth rhythmic percussion. This one has so many standout elements, from the mesmerizing bassline to the eclectic guitar licks and a plethora of instruments that are layered perfectly to deliver a solid workout. The vocal is the big hitter here though, a smooth rendition with a cool narrative that leads up to an uplifting chorus with an instantly catchy theme. If that wasn’t enough we are treated to some groovy leads that will keep the booty’s shakin all night long. An absolute beauty of a track here and one that you will not want to miss, it’s gonna be big.

Everywhere sets out with a deep grooving vibe as chunky kicks are joined by warm, deep pads and a subtle percussion arrangement. A deep bassline takes over the sound as the equally deep vocal comes through alongside jazzy one shots. Shuffling hats, sharp claps and layered drums bring in a rhythmic element as the groove deepens with melancholic piano chords and contrasting brighter notes. The break reveals a cool lead that accompanies the vocal beautifully before we head back into the main track for the duration. A superb piece filled with many elements that blend together nicely, a must have for sure.

MATAN CASPI – CELEBRIUM (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Continuing with a string of top notch cuts on Bonzai Progressive, Matan Caspi returns with Celebrium which comes backed up with three superb remixes from Yuriy From Russia, Rise and Fall and Mendexx. His last outing came back in October 2015 with Klubnichka alongside Roy Lebens which gained great support across the board. He also makes regular appearances on our Bonzai Basik Beats radioshow and his sets always go down very well indeed.

The Original Mix sets off in a moody deep progressive vibe with a nice chunky kick, crispy hats and deep basses that pulsate through the sound. Cool vocal shots pop up from time to time and add a strong character to the sound. In the back end a super tight drum and percussion arrangement keeps the rhythm flowing while up front we’re met head on with a solid groove. Top notch stuff from Matan and a definite must have track in your arsenal.

Yuriy From Russia is up first on remix duties and yet again he enthrals us with his brand of deep progressive vibes which have graced so many remixes on Bonzai Progressive over the last number of years. Here the remix intros with a cool mixture of hats claps and FX which are soon joined by a punchy kick drum that carries a nice solid hit. A deep droning bass comes through and adds a sinister element to the sound with a deep rooted groove. Cool percussion hits litter the sound and boost the rhythmic elements. As the layers build we get locked into an infectious mesmerizing groove that leads up to a short break where we get teased with a modicum of melody before being transported back to the deeper recesses of this fantastic progressive slice. Excellent stuff yet again, the perfect fodder for any late night session.

Rise and Fall is up next on the remix and once more we are blown away by the talent on offer from this guy. He has given us some fine progressive cuts over the years and he never fails to deliver. His last outing Open System proved popular among many which is a testament to his contribution to the scene. The remix intros with a cool muted kick and a great warping bass alongside an array of surreal FX and sounds. A subtle melodic arp fades through and stands out in contrast to the deeper sounds around. The drums layer up nicely with a cool rhythmic vibe that will transform easily to the floors. A solid progressive groove ensues with sweeping synths and risers taking us to the break where we enter a deeper abyss before getting thrust back into the main groove for the duration. Another fine example from Rise and Fall, not to be missed.

Mendexx returns to the remix desk for another one of his sublime offerings. His last outing on BP – Deceptive Minds gained fantastic support and found its way into many sets and charts on top download portals. 2015 was a great year for this guy and no doubt 2016 will follow suit. Here the remix intros with a solid kick drum and crispy hat combi and a snappy snare on the downbeat. A cool staccato bassline starts up and lets the progressive juices flow effortlessly through the sound. Sublime synths ebb and flow with sweeping pads in the background bringing in a cool cosmic vibe that keeps you locked on with its hypnotic groove. A raspy vocal litters the track and adds great texture to the sound alongside a tight percussion set up. Brilliant stuff from Mendexx that will definitely have those late sets rocking.

GAI BARONE – WHEN IN JUNE (MANU RIGA REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Progressive guru Manu Riga steps up to the remix desk and churns out yet another top quality cut for our aural pleasure. The remix sets off with a nice chunky kick drum with cool hats on the offset and an extra cool drum pattern in the background. A fantastic pulsing bassline gives the track a nice drive that will easily get the dance floors moving. A wonderful lead synth riff delivers a nice touch to the sound and freshens up the groove beautifully. Out of nowhere a superb cascading arp fades in and out of the sound and takes us up to the break where a cacophony of strings take over. The icing on the cake though comes in the form of a stunningly rich vocal that sends shivers down your spine before we head back into the main groove. Definitely one of Manu’s best remixes here, lots going on that will bring new experiences with each listen. This one is not to be missed.

GAI BARONE – WHEN IN JUNE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

We welcome Gai Barone back to Bonzai Progressive and he has brought along another one of his deep progressive creations for our listening pleasure. When In June is Gai’s latest offering and comes backed up with four top notch remixes from none other than Belgian stalwarts Airwave and Manu Riga, Australia’s Audio Noir and Slovakia’s Crocy. Throw in Gai’s Italian roots and we have a hotbed of international talent that knows how to work a track.

The Original Mix intros with various percussive elements to the backdrop of a deep droning pad that builds up an air of intensity. The contrasts are stark with bright crispy hats slicing through that low tone. A nice punchy kick drum comes through and we find ourselves locked on to a sublime hypnotic vibe for the duration. The bass floats through the sound with a beautifully warm glow and gives the track that deeper grooving feeling. Just after the midway point we are introduced to some sharp, perfectly balanced strings that carry a beautiful melody as they sweep through the groove. Top notch from Mr Barone and a definite must have track.

First up on remix duty is Airwave and once again he takes us on a trek deep into progressive to the backdrop of a solid breaks groove. The remix intros with a fantastic string ensemble with a deep bass tone sitting on the low end while the subtle melodies of the strings swirl overhead. The drums burst onto the track and deliver a brilliant breaks arrangement filled with punchy kicks and snapping snares alongside stuttering hats and rides. The intensity builds as the layers form up into a wonderful energetically fuelled monster of a tune. On the break we are offered a little respite in the form of some very cool strummed guitar licks as those strings continue to linger above and below. The track climaxes and we are thrust right back into the full on progressive breaks routine for the duration. Simply awesome.

Progressive guru Manu Riga steps up to the remix desk and churns out yet another top quality cut for our aural pleasure. The remix sets off with a nice chunky kick drum with cool hats on the offset and an extra cool drum pattern in the background. A fantastic pulsing bassline gives the track a nice drive that will easily get the dance floors moving. A wonderful lead synth riff delivers a nice touch to the sound and freshens up the groove beautifully. Out of nowhere a superb cascading arp fades in and out of the sound and takes us up to the break where a cacophony of strings take over. The icing on the cake though comes in the form of a stunningly rich vocal that sends shivers down your spine before we head back into the main groove. Definitely one of Manu’s best remixes here, lots going on that will bring new experiences with each listen. This one is not to be missed.

Crocy returns and gives us another one of his deep progressive house remixes that tantalises the musical taste buds. The remix sets off with a cool chunky kick and equally cool crispy hats and rhythmic drums. A gritty bassline courses through the sound and stands in contrast to the bright melodic strings that swell up early on. The track takes on a real deep progressive edge before heading into the break where a beautifully arranged ensemble of strings rings out to lull us into their grasp. After a subtle climax we are thrust back into the main groove to get those booty’s shakin’ once more. Top notch from Crocy yet again, the perfect addition to any set.

Audio Noir is up next and rounds off this pack with his Rekonstruction that pumps out a rip roaring breaks set up. The remix intros with a superb pumping breaks drum arrangement complete with a prominent snappy snare drum and punchy kick. Shuffling hats begin to form up and we soon find ourselves hooked on the groove. In the background we get an array of FX and a gritty bass pulse, but it’s those drums that keep your ears trained with cool variations on the snare standing out perfectly. A fantastic gated synth makes a showing alongside a rising maelstrom of strings that bring a real intensity to the sound. On the break those strings burst through and shine bright before the breaks come back in with a tough acid laced bassline in tow that adds an extra level of drive to the groove. Superb stuff once more from Audio Noir, a must have in any collection for sure.

DIEGO ALVEZ – REFLECTIONS EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Diego Alvez makes a welcome return to Bonzai Progressive after a bit of a hiatus, with the fantastic two tracker – Reflections EP. Diego’s last outing on BP was back in 2013 with Sleepless Night, but he has appeared on several compilations across various labels over the last couple of years. His brilliant remix of Loquai’s We Love The Night gained great support after it appeared on Bonzai & Friends Underground Progressive Collection. Great to have this guy back at the helm and we hope to see more soon.

First up we have the title track Reflections which takes us on a superb deep house fuelled journey of epic proportions. A nice pounding kick drum leads the way as a throbbing bass begins to leak into the sound. Soft hats start to form up and fade slowly into the sound as we become hooked on the hypnotic nature of the sound. Swirling pads fill the background and bring a richness to the sound that bonds beautifully with the lower frequencies. This one goes deep, seriously deep, so get ready to have your mind lured into this wonderfully surreal expansive sound.

Deep Lights intros with a nice thumping kick drum and a subtle drum bringing up the rear. The kick drum leaves a cool tone on the end and adds depth to the construction. Shuffling hats find their way and let the rhythm loose while the track builds up a solid groove. We find ourselves locked on to the drum arrangement and suddenly a beautifully lush house chord comes through and transforms the track into a deep groovy monster with a subtle retro theme. The break focuses in on those chords to perfection as they keep the groove alive before making way for those fantastic drums and getting the bootys shakin once more. Awesome stuff from Diego here, a definite must have track you will not want to miss.
