ALEXEY LISIN featuring ANN DI – GLOW (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Alexey Lisin is back and this time around he enlists the vocal talents of Ann Di on the superb Gloss. Alexey’s last outing saw him utilise vocals from Ange on Vesna, and we have no doubt this new pairing will yield another great result.

The Original Mix sets out with deep, grooving house in mind as warm chords fade in and out alongside a cool shuffling hat patter. The stunning vocal from Ann glides in effortlessly and marries to the sound beautifully. The track gets into full swing as chunky kicks come through and tighten up the drum section perfectly. Those chords dominate right the way through the sound and are joined by cool glittering synths that cast brilliant textures. The bass sits back innocently while adding a great deal of depth to the groove and compliment the smooth vocals superbly. Top notch stuff that will surely get the floors moving.

Long Garden Avenue aka the hugely talented Manu Riga debuts on Bonzai Progressive with two very impressive remixes. Manu is currently one of Bonzai’s top deep progressive artists, but in 2005 he entered the scene through house music and slowly changed into a more progressive style. Over the last several months he has began to bring in more of his house music background with smooth melodies and emotional tracks coming through. 2015 is proving a big year for this guy and it is only going to get better from here. On the remix we get strapped into cool house grooves right from the get go as punchy kicks are joined by snappy snares and sharp claps. A smooth FM bass dances along the groove nicely while distinct house chords glide through. The track breaks with those chords fizzling in and out to the backdrop of Ann’s stunning vocal that fills the sound beautifully. A super tight drum arrangement keeps this rhythm in check and allows the musical side to flow effortlessly. Top notch stuff that puts Manu firmly back in the deep house game.
The Long Garden Avenue Dub Mix takes us deep into the groove with a pure musical journey with just the slightest hint of vocals popping up throughout. One for the late night trips for sure.

Abi-Q returns after a short hiatus to deliver a wonderfully deep, prog fuelled remix. We last saw Abi-Q back in February 2015 with the fantastic Boaka Chiringo which turned a few heads on the circuit, delighted to see him back once again. The remix gets right into prog mode as punchy kicks are met with sharp, crisp hats and a hypnotizing repeated vocal shot. A cool riser teases and leads us into a mixture of cool sounds and FX while in the background rich pads are forming up and creating a surreal atmosphere. The bassline soon follows and we find ourselves locked on for the duration. On the break we are hit with big stabby chords and glitchy sounds as fleeting synths leave a trail of progressive goodness. Superb stuff that will definitely grab attention.

RUSLAN VASHKEVICH – THOUGHT THE SMOKE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich heads back into Bonzai Progressive territory with the brilliant two tracker Thought The Smoke. Ruslan was last round these shores back in May 2015 with Bodhisattva which saw good support and features on top download portals.

Thought The Smoke intros with a pacey beat as punchy kicks get moving alongside subtle shuffling hats. A solid progressive groove is in the making and gets a boost with that rolling, chugging bassline. Sweeping FX glide across the sound as melodic phrases fill the spectrum delivering a surreal experience. The break digs deeper and allows that bass to hypnotize while the melodies continue to float by. Super deep and super groovy, one for the late night sessions for sure.

Laughing Buddha goes straight for the jugular with a solid kick that pounds out a tight groove alongside subtle percussions and rising FX. The bassline takes over and command authority as it rolls along with relentless power. Those sweeping FX add wonderful textures to the subtle nature of the track. On the break we get a glimpse of melody with a superb lead synth that captures the imagination beautifully. A proper progressive trip that will keep you wanting more and more.

SAMOTAREV – MIDNIGHT PINBALL (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Alexey Samotarev returns to Bonzai Progressive with his latest deep progressive offering, Midnight Pinball. We always get an air of excitement around the office when this guys stuff drops in the box. No wonder, as his previous cuts with testify that he sure knows how to deliver the goods. We last got a glimpse of this guy on Audio Noir’s Now & Zen album as well as multiple appearances on various Bonzai compilations. Great to see more from this talented artist and we hope to see much more in the future.

Midnight Pinball intros with a solid kick and cool percussion line as a reverb heavy sound kicks in. The bass ploughs through with a super deep groove that drives the track beautifully as the tight drums keep the rhythm pumping. Blippy sequenced notes scatter across the sound with a playful manner that is in stark contrast to the deeper leanings of the vibe. Sweeping synths come in and add a cool richness to the groove that keeps it firmly locked into the progressive sphere. Brilliant stuff yet again from Alexey that you will not want to miss.

Bonzai regular Yuriy From Russia hits us up with one of his outstanding remixes, and once again he knocks it outta the park. Yuriy is fast becoming a remix guru here, his last outing was on knob tweaking duty for Alexey Lisin & Ange’s Vesna which was very well received indeed. Mush more coming from this guy, so keep a lookout. The track intros with a super punchy kick and shuffling hat sequence that builds up a steady rhythm. The bassline is the big hitter with an offbeat-onbeat pattern that drives the groove beautifully on a deep progressive course. A cascading melodic arp flows through the sound and is the perfect accompaniment for that superb deep bass. The synths open up and sweep across the sound as the layers build. The track losses all high end frequency as that bass toughens up for a short stint on its own before the high end returns with rhythmic gusto. Expertly crafted sounds from a hugely talented artist that will be a welcome addition in any set.

Following Light debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this stunning remix. Ukranian born Kirill Guk has remained a constant force in the progressive house world since 2010 having released on a vast selection of labels. Inmost Records, Balkan Connection and Abstract Space are just a few of the labels mentioned but gives you an idea of the status this guy holds. His music features heavily in sets across the globe and he has worked with some top artists along the way. The remix intros with a cool, textured vibe filled with swirling pads and a smooth synth chord alongside stuttering percussions. A nice punchy kick takes over and is joined by a crispy hat section that tops the tight arrangement. A deep probing bass comes in and gets this progressive groove on the move. The layers build and transforms this sound into a hypnotic, infectious groove that locks you in for the duration.

COMPLETEJ – TELL-TALE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

CompleteJ aka US based DJ and producer Josh Routin debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the sublime Tell-Tale. Josh spins regularly at various clubs and holds a residency at Kingdom Austin Night Club as well as being a part of Real Music Events. Over the last few years he has worked alongside many artists and has seen releases on the likes of Beat Binge, Deep Binge, Tiger Records, Big Alliance Records, Peakhour Music, Pyramid Recordings, Pop Rox Muzik, Soniquarium Muzika, LuPS Records, GruvTech Recordings and Pulse Records. Delighted to have him on board and look forward to more in the future.

Tell-Tale intros with a surreal sequence filled with crackling noises and a buzzing fly alongside other, imaginative sounds that combine beautifully. A muted kick fades through and transforms into a monster with a pounding thump and bassy aftertaste. A throbbing bassline comes out of nowhere and drives the groove on with relentless power while tight drums are formed creating a solid rhythmic flow. The track takes on its epic persona as the layers build taking us deeper into its surreal, dark progressive world. Intense pads and sizzling synths make up the main body of the track and deliver a wonderfully rich texture to the sound. A must have track for sure.

Josh teams up with fellow US based producer, Mr Sativo on Born In Darkness – which comes in two flavours, Vox Mix and Dub Mix. The Vox Mix intros with a superb drum filled sequence that delivers a full on deep progressive tribal vibe that lulls you in. A solid kickdrum joins in and the rhythm is let loose. In the background haunting voices ebb and flow as rich strings and pads sweep across the sound. The bass sits very subtly under the track and packs a huge low end boost that drives the groove beautifully. Darker, more atmospheric sounds converge as that raspy vocal flows through becoming a huge part of the track. The Dub Mix strips out the vocal completely for those you interested in the music only. Both tracks are definitely destined for those late night parties that you will not want to miss.

VAN CZAR INTERVIEW FOR MADRID NIGHTLIFE BLOG

Van Czar gave a short interview for Madrid Nightlife Blog after his last gig at Taboo, Madrid. Van Czar grew up in Brussels, Belgium and he was very keen on listening and thinking about music. From the age of just 12 he was able to understand music and the processes involved within it. At 14 he got his first piece of equipment and has not looked back since.

In the early days Van was playing Belgian hard trance as he was heavily influenced by the Cherrymoon Club and in particular the Bonzai sound. Later on he would find the raw side of Detroit Techno and Chicago House and he then started to play gigs around Belgium in clubs like StarTraxx.

Van Czar has a special ability to engage with the crowd. He is versatile and adapts to any kind of gig or event he takes part in. He loves a clubby atmosphere as well as “hype” events.

Now producing quality Techno and Deep House, Van likes to inject sensual voices and multiple FX to get the adrenaline flowing, and it’s his diverse background in music that allows him to succeed in this.

As sound evolves so does Van, he is at the forefront of a dynamic industry and he has the tools to stay there.

His tracks have seen big support in the DJ circuit and he has collaborated with ‘top’ artists like Marcin Czubala. Van has a very busy schedule these days with more EP’s in the works and gigs around the Madrid area coming thick and fast. He has also started a radioshow ‘Bonzai Basik Beats Spain’ that is broadcasted all around the world with a showcase on the best from Bonzai’s past, present and future.

Still much, much more to come from this outstandingly talented artist, so stay tuned for more.

The title track, The Fallen – which draws inspiration from the heroes who fought against the Ottoman Empire, embodies an Eastern flavour throughout that will send shivers down your spine. The track intros with a punchy kick and an atmospheric background filled with sweeping sounds and cool FX that etch out a surreal Persian theme. The bassline rolls in early on and settles us into a solid workout that relentlessly powers on. Rich vocals spread across the sound throughout as Manu delivers one of his trademarks alongside a tight drum arrangement. A wonderfully sharp Turkish Saz comes into play on the lead and transforms the groove brilliantly as a subtle acid line weaves its way into the track. The break focuses in on soft melodies that dance along on a smooth arp alongside that stunning voice before we get thrust back into the main groove. The track drives on in a deep progressive groove that captivates with a seemingly Twin Peaks-esque vibe making this a definite must have track.

Anywhere But Home takes us deep into the bowels of progressive with a solid workout that will leave you wanting more. Phat kicks and tight percussion arrangements lock the rhythm in place with a little help from a lush bass that sits perfectly under the main sound. Cool strings and pads sweep across the sound as the layers build and the intensity rises. On the break beautiful melancholic vocals melt into the sound and lead the way on a climactic build up that takes us back into this full on groove. A stunning effort which sees a new side to Manu Riga creep through, top notch.

DENNIS FRANCHI & HOUSE LOVIN CRIMINALS – BASETIMES EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dennis returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Basetimes EP and HE brings along the House Lovin Criminals for their debut appearance with the equally fantastic, feet stomping On The Road Again. We last saw Dennis around April 2015 with his brilliant four tracker entitled, Takin Care Of My Shit, which gained a lot of support on the circuit. Dennis and studio partner C-Les make up the House Lovin Criminals and their mission is to take various house music fusions and bring them to new heights while retaining a classic vibe. The guys have known each other for a number of years and regularly DJed together at various parties. They went their different ways for a time before somehow getting back together and ultimately getting into the studio. A truly fresh approach from this dynamic duo and we have no doubt they will make their mark on the scene in a big way.

House Lovin Criminals’ – On The Road Again intros with a superb syncopated rhythm as chunky kicks and stabbing chords deliver the infectious groove. A cool meandering bassline comes through and sets the track firmly into its solid groove. On the break we get strange sweeping sounds that ebb and flow throughout the rest of the track. A hugely popular classic vocal shows up which adds to the retro themes running through and works so well with the sound. An absolute monster of a track that will definitely set floors alight, one to watch.

Basetimes intros with a classic styled punchy kick with a cool low end after taste and crispy hat combi. A solid FM bassline takes over and we get locked into the powerful grooves of the track. Tight drums form up creating a dancey vibe that forces you to shake that booty. Cool sweeping FX glide across the sound alongside a simple one shot vocal. Top notch stuff from Dennis that will surely get the floors moving.

Never Know takes a tough stance right from the off and powerful kicks are joined by harsh, super crisp hats and cymbals. A distant sounding vocal fades through and keeps the track locked into the deeper grooves that come pouring out. The track breaks to reveal a fantastic walking bassline that plucks its way through delivering an energetic vibe and creating a solid low end for the sound. Brilliant effort that will feature in many sets no doubt.

Trouble intros with a muted kick that leans towards the clipped higher frequency and is soon paired with snappy claps and prominent brushed snares that create its own rhythmic groove. A deep resonating bass drives the track on and leaves a wonderfully deep trail in its wake. Echoed vocals fade in and are joined by a gritty, harsh sounding synth lead that takes over the sound while the bass holds everything together beautifully. A tough edged, deep slice of house music that will definitely appeal to many.

JESPER MAUERHOFF – EYES WIDE SHUT (ORIGINAL MIX) CHARTED BY BEAPORT

Eyes Wide Shut settles into a solid progressive vibe from the get go with a subtle rolling bassline, chunky kicks and a cool bending synth. A strikingly sharp siren rises and takes us into full on mode as the drums and percussions deliver a smooth rhythmic flow. Some fantastic sounds come through and bring an 80’s vibe alongside a superb contemporary melodic arp that rises and falls beautifully through the track.
