A.ERYOMIN – YOU’LL NEVER KNOW WHY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian producer Alexander Eryomin aka A.Eryomin returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb You’ll Never Know Why which comes with a plethora of top notch remixes from top producers within the Bonzai sphere. Alexander’s debut came back in the Summer of 2015 with Lonely Nights which quickly gained a great deal of support. Since then he has been churning out quality vibes on various labels as well as featuring on many compilations. Great to see him back with this stomper which we’ve no doubt will grab a lot of attention.

You’ll Never Know Why has many strands that combine beautifully into a solid slice of progressive house. A distinct retro theme runs through the sound that will definitely grab a lot attention in today’s scene. Nice and chunky kick drums are joined by crispy hats and a superbly crafted percussion arrangement giving off a cool rhythmic flow. The probing bassline comes at us from different angles for maximum effect while a cacophony of synths stack up creating a driving groove. Soft vocals add a real character to the sound while an array of FX give the track cool textures. A definite must have right here.

Accompanying the original we have a host of top remix artists to whet the progressive appetite. First up we have the impeccable Manu Riga with his Deep Tech Mix which takes us deep into the progressive abyss with a wonderful tech edge. ConcreteWaves makes a debut appearance on Bonzai with a much more upfront remix that is sure to fill the floors while regular Bonzai contributor Dennis Franchi dishes out some of his fine deep and pleasing grooves with his remix. Negrol also makes a remix debut with a super deep slice of prog filled with fantastic probing basses and expertly crafted synths while another debutant DJ BF turns up with a wonderful hypnotic slice that takes us on a mesmerizing journey. Rounding up this impressive remix roster we have Angelo Dobric who has made the jump over from Piston Recordings to deliver a superb, driving and highly infectious piece of music that will definitely make the grade in any set.

An impressive pack that covers a lot of ground with plenty to choose from, who will be your favourite?

His music takes us on a journey, telling a story along the way and drawing out many emotions from the listener. Great to have him on board and we certainly hope to see more soon.

The Original Mix intros with a wonderful warm synth pad that sets the scene for this one perfectly as we embark on a mesmeric journey filled with all the wonders of electronica. A steady flow of solid beats dish out a smooth rhythm over a meandering bassline that delivers a laidback groove. The big hitter here though are the impeccable synths. Cascading arps and piercing synths in various shapes and sizes ring out that captivate the imagination with subtle melodics and powerful note changes. A superb cut that is definitely not to be missed.

The ever present Manu Riga delights with another one of his sublime remixes with its groovy beat and surreal, mystical sound. As with previous remixes and originals, Manu Riga never lets up on the quality front and even though his style has changed to be directed more towards the dance floors this is even more true. Good things continue for Manu Riga in 2016, a new EP – Unstoppable (October)as well as numerous remixes and future original material are all still in the pipeline. His craftsmanship is still very much revered by his peers and he remains an inspiration to artists and music fans alike. His radioshow Escape continues to gather pace delivering the very best sounds every month on Progressive Beats. Stay tuned for more, there’s plenty to come. The remix here intros with a solid kick drum to get things moving as warm basses start to fade up alongside cool arpeggio sequences. As we are lured into the deep prog vibe, sweeping accordion pads add wonderful textures on top of the infectious groove. The break throws up some very nice vocals giving the track a lot of character and depth. An absolute stomper once again from this guy that will sit perfectly in any set.

JoC H aka Bolivian DJ and producer Jose Henry returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two tracker – Momento EP.

His debut came in February 2016 – Never Give Up – and gained a great deal of support. Great to see him back once more and hopefully more to come in the future.

Momento is a solid progressive workout that mesmerizes with its warm grooves filled with lush basses and a tight drum arrangement. The progressive vibes ooze out of this one as beautifully tweaked synths deliver that rich sound alongside the hypnotic bassline. The break delivers a short respite from the full on nature of the track before we’re slammed right back into the groove for the duration. Top notch stuff once more from this guy, a must have no doubt.

Pulso intros with a muted kick drum and crispy hi hat combi that set up a nice flowing rhythmic slice. The kicks get their punch soon after leading the track on its path deep into tech. A powerful bassline is the main player here and it dominates the groove beautifully alongside that super tight drum arrangement. Scattered synths and swirling pads create some very nice textures in the sound, but it’s that solid bassline that will get you hooked. One for the late night sessions right here, not to be missed.

Don’t Stop Me Now is a perfectly apt title as it is the manifestation of the Unstoppable force that is Manu Riga. Heading straight for the dancefloor, this one will definitely get things moving with its expertly crafted drums and upbeat tech vibe. The bassline sets the tone perfectly as you find yourself drawn to its infectious groove. Swirling pads create a wonderful atmosphere as we head into the break where a hypnotic arpeggio takes over dishing out cool melodies as it goes. A definite must have for any playlist.

Let Them Play reflects the plight of indigenous peoples and takes on the narrative to leave them alone. The sound incorporates some very cool ethnic vibes which are perfectly exposed through subtle melodies. Chunky kick drums and shuffling hats will get feet on the floors and some fantastic percussions will keep them there. The break throws up a wonderfully rich and beautiful piano that is joined by tribal voices before we are slammed right back into the main groove for the duration. Another fine slice from Manu Riga that you will not want to miss.

They also enjoy DJing at various venues where they dish out their own brand of deep prog and infectious techno. We’re happy to see these guys at BP we’ve no doubt they’ll grab a lot attention.

From the outset we get drawn into the sound laid down by this talented duo, they tear up any rules that might exist and just make sublime music. Honey gives us our first taste of their progressive side as tight punchy drums lead the way to the back drop of cool spoken vocals, subtle melodies and a deep layered bass. Mission is up next and we’re kept in the depths with a hybrid prog-techno offering filled with pulsing basses and chunky kicks that will definitely keep any late night venue rocking. Bozon goes deeper again with a fantastic probing bass as the main focus alongside well rounded kicks, sharp hats and some gritty synths to stir the track up a bit. Troll comes out of the blocks with a nice kick drum and cool FX as rhythmic percussions start to form up. A deep rumbling bassline gives the track a warm glow as scathing synths break up the low frequencies. Next we have Be Ok which delivers a straight up techno joint that carries a prog edge throughout. Rumbling basses and tight drums make up most of the track while cool textures are created from the vocal and brilliant synths. At the midway point we get a taste of the prog-tech hybrid Epic, and that title could not be more apt. This one delivers a truly hypnotic slice as that mesmeric bassline takes us deeper. Up top we are treated to some expertly crafted FX and drum patterns that will definitely keep the floors moving.

On the home straight this album continues to throw up some tasty treats. Carparthians and Lagoon are beautiful examples of deep, moody and melancholic progressive house. Wrapped up in warm basses, both tracks will leave you in a dreamlike state. In the fusion between tech and prog we have three superb cuts with Exoplanet, Empire and Champagne, gritty edgy synths, subtle melodies and some very cool vocals reside within and each track will surely project very well on the floors.

Mission is a stunning display of Gabriel and Ricardo’s talents, injected with warmth and some seriously infectious grooves, this one is a definite must have.

STAN KOLEV – BREATHLESS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Based out of Miami Beach, Florida, Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Breathless which features two stunning remixes from Manu Riga and Rise and Fall. This guy has been churning out quality vibes for over 10 years and in that time he has turned his hand to many styles and genres. He focuses mainly on progressive house but you will find he can dish out top notch deep house, house and tech house with the same dedication and resulting quality. A very much revered artist by his peers, Stan inspires many to reach his standard. His back catalogue is mind blowing and he has appeared on many top rated labels over the years. Great to have him on board at BP and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.

Stan’s Original Mix delivers a solid progressive vibe that we’ve come to expect from this talented artist. This time around he dishes out an oldskool vibe that will definitely grab the attention of many. Nice punchy kicks and shuffling hats lead the way as a probing bassline weaves in and out. Stabby synth notes fade up only to dissolve leaving us wanting more. The drums section remains tight with a complex percussion arrangement sending out a steady rhythmic flow. Another fine slice from this guy that is not to be missed.

Prolific Belgian artist Manu Riga is up first on remix duty delivering a full on dancefloor filler. After many years of mastering his own unique sounds, Manu Riga has taken a slight change of direction, exploring new sounds and ideas to get only the best music to the floors and beyond. We’ve come accustomed to his sound and while this one is new we can still find the Manu Riga magic within. Busy as ever, Adriaan is working on new material and remains a much sought after remixer. He is also busy with his Escape and Ethno Science radioshows. The remix opens with a very cool rhythmic vibe that intensifies as the track builds. Shuffling hats, chunky kicks and infectious percussion patterns will get the feet to the floors no doubt. Wonderfully warm basses wash over the track, inviting you in, while in the background diva-esque vocals ring out. On the break the track whittles down to a pulsing bass and swirling pads before the melody begins to rise once more taking us back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff once again that will not disappoint.

Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov aka Rise and Fall returns to Bonzai Progressive with his outstanding remix. This year (2016) has shaped up to be an important one for this guy, he’s delivered the goods consistently which is why he is very much in demand for remix duties. His reputation as a quality artist continues to grow and we’ve no doubt that this one will be grabbing a lot of attention. The remix opens with a nice solid kick drum which is joined soon after by crispy hi hats and a seriously low end bassline that bubble up from the depths. Up to some very cool female vocals add wonderful texture to the sound before the track hits the first break. Here the track opens up with the bass widening out and some fantastic stabbing synths coming through which takes us back into full swing. The synths combine beautifully with the groove and we find ourselves totally locked on. A definite must have track, no doubt.
