ALEXEY LISIN & ANGE – VESNA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Alexey Lisin marks his full debut on Bonzai Progressive with Vesna and enlists the fantastic vocal talents of Ange along the way. Not quite his first appearance as he got the Zen remix treatment on Audio Noir’s superb album, Now & Zen. Having burst onto the scene back in November 2014 with the awesome Moscow Calling, and following that up with the equally impressive Desolation at the start of January 2015, we’ve certainly got a taste of this guys musical prowess on the Techno front. With a shifting towards progressive house on his Baroque Records release, Siberia, we are seeing a different side to this up and coming producer, plenty more to come no doubt so stay tuned. Popular vocalist Ange returns to Bonzai after her debut appearance with Yuriy From Russia back in 2013 on Do You Feel. Over the last several years she has worked with a whole host of top class artists with her distinct vocal style and her talents have been showcased on many labels worldwide.

The Original Mix takes us deep into progressive with a beautifully hypnotic vibe that really captivates with the sultry vocals of Ange. Tight percussions and solid drums deliver a brilliant rhythmic vibe that will definitely have the floors shakin. The deep basses sit back teasingly and allow the synth elements to shine. On the break we get locked into those mesmerizing vocals that just melt into the sound effortlessly. A driving slice of progressive that will surely be a hit with the purists.

Yuriy From Russia steps up to the remix plate and shows us yet again his amazing talents. His last outing was on remix duty for Wild Guess’ Trysal 35 back in March this year and since then his tracks have appeared on various compilations among other releases on different labels. The remix intros with a well rounded kick that is joined by a subtle shuffling hat. A melodic arp fades through as a deep rooted bassline takes hold and dominates with its pulsing probing prowess. The vocals from Ange are simply stunning, her voice seems to materialise from nowhere and blend beautifully into the sound providing a melancholic twist on the melodic nature of the track. Such a wonderful, dreamy vibe here that will definitely appeal to many.

Australia’s Audio Noir serves up another of his classic Rekonstruction’s. This guy has been racking up quite a back catalogue of late. 2015 is turning out to be a very busy year as he delivered his first studio album amongst a multitude of remixes. Already working on his second album we are very excited about what this guy will throw at us next. The remix here ramps up the energy levels with a superb, driving groove filled with a tight drum arrangement and a tough edged bassline that sits in contrast with the brighter, more melodic elements of the track. On the break we are led into a world full of beautiful melodies and deep, warm basses before we get shoved back into the main groove where a brilliant gated synth lead takes over. Ange’s vocal comes through with an air of innocence that works very well with the progressive vibe. Another top notch cut from down under, not to be missed.

Russian producer Zatonsky debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this fantastic remix that really raises the bar in the world of prog. With a very impressive list of tracks across various labels we can see why this guy was drafted in for remix duty. The remix opens with a deep, lush piano chord which is joined by the melancholic vocals from Ange that really captivate the imagination. A bright melodic piano provides a stark, contrasting dynamic to the sound as the pianos fade and the track kicks in. Expertly crafted drum arrangements ensue with a deep pulsating bass in tow as the pianos return alongside that stunning vocal. A simply amazing piece of deep progressive vocal house that will capture a lot of attention for sure.

TECH DEALER – PLASTIC VIBES (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Moscow based DJ and producer Vlad Nikulin aka Tech Dealer debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Plastic Vibes. This guy is into all sorts of styles from Deep House and Tech through to Acid and Detroit Techno. In 2013 he released Yellow Brick on Piko Music Deep with much acclaim from within the Deep House world. Plastic Vibes comes backed up with two top class remixes from Bonzai stalwarts Crocy and Manuel Palmitesta.

The Original Mix of Plastic Vibes sets out with a crispy fresh round of bright percussions alongside a smooth warming pad and punchy kicks. The track breaks to reveal a powerful, probing bass that punches through the sound and takes full control of the groove. You will soon find yourself locked into the dancey house grooves on offer here as the synths deliver some cool chord play that give the sound contrasting textures. Definitely a must have track for the bouncey floors.

Manuel Palmitesta returns to Bonzai Progressive with another of his superb remixes. Here he transforms the original into a deep fuelled progressive house vibe that delivers a sublime experience. Right from the off the tone is set to deep with those long release bass notes and chunky bass drums. The track settles into a tight groove that keeps going deeper with the introduction of a sinister, distant vocal as haunting FX swirl around. An awesome slice of deep progressive house that will be the perfect fodder for those late night escapades.

Crocy turns up for remix duty and delivers the goods once more. The remix intros with a classic kick and hat combi which is joined by warm fading chords that mesmerize the mind beautifully. A big phat chunky bassline comes through and gives the track a cool tougher edge which contrasts perfectly with those lush keys. On the break a retro styled synth takes over and winds its way through the track for the duration. The layers build brilliantly and bring new textures that give the sound a richness to be enjoyed on the floors. Top notch stuff yet again from this guy, a must have.

Aitra and E.F.G. debut on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Splash. Since childhood Aitra was interested in club music.

E.F.G.’s first musical influences date back to the late ’90s, listening to tunes from acts like The Prodigy and Fatboy Slim who have played a significant role in his musical taste formation.

ALEX VIDAL – MESMERIZED (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Spanish DJ and producer Alex Vidal churns out another top notch cut on Bonzai Progressive with Mesmerized. Just a few months ago we saw him on remix duty for Audio Noir’s, Life which proved very popular indeed on many playlists. Since then he has racked up appearances on our Ibiza 2015 compilation as well as showings on Green Martian’s Afterhour Trax 15 and 16.

Mesmerized takes us down into the progressive abyss with a truly captivating array of sounds that blend effortlessly into a superb construction. Right from the off as the percussions form up to the backdrop of an atmospheric pad and the fading in punchy kicks, we get locked into the groove. A proper, raw, dirty bass picks up the pace and really delivers the goods to keep asses shakin’. Scattered around you’ll find smooth vocal licks and subtle melodic phrases that pop out for a short time before getting lost in the mire once more. An epic slice of prog that will definitely grab the attention of many this summer.

Distant Lights intros with a somewhat tender kick drum that sits nicely alongside those captivating pads that ebb and flow. A smooth and steady rhythm is picked up by the crispy hats and tight percussion arrangement with a further boost by the deep rooted, driving bass line that dominates the track throughout. Sweeping strings and pads come complete with drifting melodies as synths threaten to burst out. On the break be prepared to totally lose yourself in the cosmic soundscape with that tough edged bass line as the backbone. A hell of a track that is most definitely going to be a main player in many sets no doubt.

The Original Mix intros with a cool punchy kick that packs a lot of power and sits in dominance over sharp edged percussions that provide a solid rhythm throughout. A deep strong bass line bursts through to take control alongside cool piano chords. A wonderful sax riff takes the lead and ramps up the groovy elements of the track in style. This track dishes out a real smooth house sound that will have the floors full in no time, superb stuff.

The Hey, I Was First… Mix picks up where the original left off in a kind of ironic way. The pure house driven elements remain, courtesy of that grooving saxophone and warm piano chords. A much more progressive theme runs through this sound with the introduction of cool synths that sit back enough to allow the sax to take centre stage once again. Excellent stuff you will not want to miss.

RUSLAN VASHKEVICH – BODHISATTVA FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with the impressive Bodhisattva. Last time out we saw Ashuar gain a lot of support and no doubt this one will be no exception. The original mix of Bodhisattva intros with a punchy kick as sweeping FX cascade in the background. Subtle percussive elements come through as winding synths fade in along with a superb, deep rolling bassline that drives the groove beautifully. The track settles into a deep progressive vibe that really grabs a hold of you and locks you in with its obsessive qualities. On the break that bassline takes over and hypnotises as it fades in and out to the backdrop of eerie synths and distant spoken vocal. A nod to the hedy days of progressive here that will definitely grab the attention of many jocks no doubt.

AUDIO NOIR – NOW & ZEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

One of Bonzai’s most prolific artists delivers his stunning studio album, Now & Zen, filled to the brim of top quality original works and remixes. Audio Noir has certainly made Bonzai Progressive his home over the last number of years. He has racked up a hugely impressive back catalogue which covers many forms of music styles. His diversity has driven him to be able to complete this album. He draws on some of his past remixes and transforms them into his own Zen style, and he looks to the future with outstanding original works. This album will take you on a journey through beautifully constructed soundscapes that will allow you to detach from reality and create a sense of enlightenment. A much anticipated collection of works from an outstanding talent, definitely not to be missed.

The structure of the album brings out a beautifully crafted narrative that lulls us into its blissful realms. 17 tracks are huddled together with each bringing their own Zen like state. Audio Noir has selected some of the finest progressive tracks to be converted into this Zen structure. Tracks from Dark Soul Project & Mathov, Phi Phi, Airwave, DJ Fire, Samotarev featuring Max Magnum, Matan Caspi, Rise and Fall, Alexey Lisin & Ange and Cordoba are transformed into totally immersive and mesmerizing constructs that allow us to dig deep into our imagination. The attention to detail is sublime and ranges from subtle melodic phrases to full on intense, climactic soundscapes.

A large portion of the album is made up of Audio Noir’s original works, and he enlists the help of two outstanding vocalists to really get the goosebumps on the rise. Natalie Major is brought in for vocal duty on the wonderful Story Of Our Lives, a truly captivating track that intros with a very soft and deep bass tone. The vocals come through early on and straight away you get hooked on to the attractive sounds. In the background, rich cascading strings offer the perfect balance of both high and low frequencies. Quite simply a beautiful track.

Australian Epic delivers an abstract look into music with a mixture of contrasting sounds that converge in perfect harmony. From glitchy to warm rising pads and deep basses, the track builds beautifully into a raw almost urbanised sound complete with a tough edged drum section. Definitely something for the late night sessions.

Love intros with a tribalistic drum arrangement before cool plonky piano notes come through. A softer side develops with the introduction of beautiful strings that sweep through the sound. A deep bass walks through the groove as sensual vocals are unleashed. A deeply though provoking track, brilliant.

The Hawthorne Effect delves deep with a superb hypnotic trait that reaches out the deeper recesses of the mind. A melancholic sound prevails as wonderful sounds converge to the backdrop of a fantastic drum sequence. In contrast, a melodic piano phrase plays the track out and leaves you wanting much more.

Lena Grig joins Audio Noir on Like The Wind which intros with a cool bass pulse that leads up to a superb percussions arrangement filled with crisp hats and claps. A big 80’s synth sound peeks out and the strong vocal from Lena combines perfectly. A much deeper vibe takes over for the duration as the lower end is given free reign on this expertly crafted number.

Furō intros with cool percussions amid a plethora of superb FX that sweep through the track and lead us up to a fantastic synth riff. We are teased with the notion of a pounding kick drum as mini risers takes us through each section of the track. A world of melody is unleashed as the myriad of sound blends perfectly to the pulsing bass that dominates. A wonderful track full of anticipation and energy that will definitely grab your attention.

Navagio Beach rounds up the album and does it in style. The track bursts into life with a crash that fades out to reveal the most beautiful melodic piano sequence alongside soft gated synths, sweeping pads and the mesmerizing action of the sea. Quite simply, stunning.

RUSLAN VASKEVICH – BODHISATTVA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with the impressive Bodhisattva. Last time out we saw Ashuar gain a lot of support and no doubt this one will be no exception. The original mix of Bodhisattva intros with a punchy kick as sweeping FX cascade in the background. Subtle percussive elements come through as winding synths fade in along with a superb, deep rolling bassline that drives the groove beautifully. The track settles into a deep progressive vibe that really grabs a hold of you and locks you in with its obsessive qualities. On the break that bassline takes over and hypnotises as it fades in and out to the backdrop of eerie synths and distant spoken vocal. A nod to the hedy days of progressive here that will definitely grab the attention of many jocks no doubt.

The Breakz mix offers up a much tougher outing to its more subdued sibling. Huge break beats dominate alongside a driving bassline that is beefed up with accompanying sub bass and gritty synths. The percussive elements take the frantic approach as they get right up in your face and keep the rhythm on solid ground. A nice deviation from four to the floor that will get any room energised.

AIRWAVE – A TOUCH OF GRACE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Airwave returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic, A touch Of Grace. He last appeared here on remix duty for Fatal Error’s Angel’s Arms which went down a treat among many. Previously, in 2014, he released a lot of tracks on BP alongside Phi Phi and others as well as a raft of cuts on Joof Recordings. Also, in the last few years, Laurent has upped his live appearances having played at gigs across the world from Canada to India and the UK to his homeland in Belgium. A truly prolific artist of this age and we are sure there will be plenty more from this guy.

First up we have the Original Mix of A Touch Of Grace which lives up to its name with a smooth, graceful intro filled with punchy kicks, building percussions and warm sweeping pads. A touch of eastern promise is added with subtle plucked strings leading the way. We are soon wrapped up and totally locked into the sound as a wonderfully rich vocal takes over and captivates while raising the hairs on the back of your neck. The music takes on a progressive trance persona as a driving, chugging bass keeps the energy levels up. Tough and gritty acid lines weave their way through contrasting melodic strings and gated synths. A truly complex structure that melds together beautifully resulting in a definite dance floor destroyer.

The Deep And Dark Mix of A Touch Of Grace is up next and takes us in a slightly different direction. Big and powerful kicks sit alongside a myriad of percussions and provide the intro which builds up with a crescendo into a deep, driving groove. A superb low end bassline holds the track up perfectly as gritty lines begin to form up all around. An Eastern flavour is evident with those beautiful melodic plucks and captivating raspy vocals. Intensity rises with every phrase and new sounds added that take us further into the groove before a short respite on the break that unleashes more of those sweet melodies. Another epic monster from Airwave that will set floors alight all over.

Reus Calling sets off with a cool drum led intro that sets out a solid rhythm complete with nice chunky kicks. In the background, very subtle, haunting voices can be heard which are soon overlayed by much richer pads and strings. A cool melodic synth comes through and sets the scene for an epic ride into an uplifting progressive journey. This is what Airwave is all about, huge intense sounds that feed off each other and forms into an engrossing soundscape that you do not want to end. Definitely a big floor stomper here, you need this in your box.
