RODDY REYNAERT & PHI PHI – AOKIGHARA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Prolific Bonzai Progressive artist and purveyor of fine progressive beats, Phi Phi teams up with Roddy Reynaert for their superb two tracker Aokighara. Phi Phi continues to provide the wow factor in everything he touches and with a new partner on board you can be sure that this will be an even greater wow. An exciting dynamic here from these two and we hope to see more from them soon.

Aokighara is up first and right from the off you are embroiled in the tracks pure progressive vibes. Leading the way we have a tight drum arrangement that dishes out a solid rhythm with a nice chunky kick drum at the forefront. The bassline drives the track in a wonderful Moroder style that creates depth and a strong dancing groove. Sweeping pads create atmosphere as melodic synths play their part. The track is full of passion and the musical elements deliver a sublime groove, this one is most definitely not to be missed.

Haarp is one of those tracks that will stand out in any set. The tight drums and shuffling percussions provide a solid platform for the epic acid style track to thrive, and it’s the acid laden groove that hits home here. Firmly rooted in retro with a contemporary twist, this one is going to light up floors for sure. A deep rumbling bassline is overlaid with an ever rising acid line that ebbs and flows while on the break a classic style trilled synth hypnotizes. A superb slice that will give the old heads much delight and the younger heads something to aspire to and enjoy for all it is, pure class.

GABRIEL WEST & RICARDO PIEDRA – YELLOW LEAVES EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Gabriel West and Ricardo Piedra return to BP with Yellow Leaves which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. This exciting duo have been making beats together for a while now and they certainly know how to crank up a groove. They recently provided a quality remix on Matan Caspi’s Luxurized which performed very well indeed. These guys always deliver and so far we have seen some superb cuts – including this one – with much more to come so stay tuned.

First up we have the original mix of Yellow Leaves which takes us deep into the progressive arena with solid beats and warm grooves. The drum section stands out as a myriad of percussions and a nice pumping kick drum join forces. Intense bassy arps bubble up from below as swirling pads join in contrasting beautifully with each other. A tribal element is evident as enhanced slapped drums dole out their rhythmic patterns while a probing bassline weaves through the sound. Top notch stuff not to be missed.

Roots delivers a pretty intense progressive workout thanks to a powerful bass that drives the groove forward alongside a cacophony of drums and percussions. A steady rhythm is formed that will keep floors rocking as will the nifty electric guitar riffs. Attention will be drawn to the expertly crafted drums though as they are prominent throughout. Another solid slice here form the guys that will not disappoint.

Matt Holliday is back at BP with his Waiting Remix of Yellow Leaves. His last outing here was with the fantastic Underworld back in the Autumn of 2016. He has been very busy over the last year or so, he continues to run JOOF Aura which is going from strength to strength with every release as well as airing his own radioshows and performing live. Always a pleasure to have his work drop into the mailbox and no doubt we’ll be seeing more soon. On the remix here Matt goes for the deeper recesses of prog with a wonderful display of arrangement and sound design. The track boasts a solid drum section with a deep tonal bassline lurking in the low end. Sinister voices litter the sound as contrasting pads a sweet melodics flow through the groove. Another epic Matt cut that is not to be missed.

Belgian DJ and producer Karim S is back at BP with his fine remix of Yellow Leaves. His debut – Pilots Of The Millennium, gained a great deal of support from a host of jocks around the world. His experience and knowledge in music allows for some seriously tight grooves and this is praised among his peers. Definitely one to keep watching here. Karim takes his remix into the tougher realm with a sharp and in your face groove that will certainly get the floors moving. Punchy kick drums lead the way with offset crispy hi hats and tight percussions providing a steady rhythmic flow. Cool chord stabs with a tech edge mesmerize as various layers build up into colourful textures. The break throws in some fine melodies against an electrified distorted arpeggio that turns into an acid-like sequence for the duration, superb stuff.

We’re always blown away by this guys sound and you can put this one up there with some of his best work. Much more to come from Matan so stay tuned.

Right from the off on the Original Mix we’re faced with a solid progger thanks to chunky kick drums and a round of bright crispy hi hats and tight percussions. A deep rumbling bass casts a deep shadow over the sound, creating a vortex of subsonic grooves. Expertly crafted FX and perfectly placed synths add strength to the groove as gritty pads fade in. Put of the bass soaked sound comes some fantastic vocals that add character to the track making this a definite must have for any progressive set.

Electronic music icon Rolf Elmer aka Jam El Mar is back at Bonzai Progressive and is up first on remix duties. Unless you’ve been locked away for over 25 years, you’ll know this guy’s history and how he was responsible for a plethora of classic material, but these days he is still hard at work looking for his next groove and forming it into an energetically charged track. Recently he showcased his talents on a special remix celebrating Bonzai’s 25 years as a record label, his take on Cherry Moon Trax – The House Of House became an instant hit among many and verified his legendary status.

We are treated to flashes of instruments in many forms that build up cool textured layers while the main focus of the track goes to the hypnotic stabbing synth that rises up on the break and for the duration. Top notch stuff once again from this guy, not to be missed.

Gabriel West & Ricardo Piedra return to Bonzai Progressive on the remix after their debut album – Mission – back in late Summer 2016 grabbed a lot of attention. Gabriel and Ricardo are definitely a perfectly matched studio partnership, they’ve been cutting tracks together for a couple of years and they always deliver the goods. They’ve developed a unique sound that mesmerizes and draws the crowd into their groove, proving just how in sync they are. This is manifested more so when they are DJing as a duo, bringing their brand to the floors and ensuring good times for all.

YVES DERUYTER – CALLING EARTH – HAN HAAK REMIX (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

As our 25th year celebrations gather momentum we pick up the pace with a reimagining of another absolute banging track from back in the day. One of our most prolific and successful artists Yves Deruyter gave us Calling Earth back in 1994 which was the A-side to IV – BR 94061 – and backed with Rave City (Cherry Mix). The original was the epitome of the sound of the time and quickly rose to mega status among throngs of ravers and DJ’s. A string of remixes followed as well as multiple releases over the years. The man himself relentlessly churned out hit after hit putting him at the top of his game and, to this day he is still very much revered by his peers. This special 25 years remix is delivered by London based DJ and producer Han Haak and he certainly does the track justice with his slick rendition. In 2012 Han decided to brings his brand of twisted sounds to the masses and his tracks where very quickly championed by a slew of top DJ’s. He is described as being amongst a new wave of rising talent that will make the underground scene much stronger. His passion and drive will most definitely give him the opportunity to make this happen. We’re delighted to have him on board for this one and we hope to see more from him in the future.

On the remix we’re greeted with that too familiar Yves Deruyter signature synth that sits behind a punchy kick drum waiting to be unleashed. The track then takes on its contemporary role as striking synth hits fall into the offbeat accompanied by spiralling basses and a solid, tight drum section. The off-melody riff from the original adds the finishing touch to this stomping cut that will most definitely tear up the modern dancefloor.

In 2001 he got hooked on DJing and this solidified his passion for electronic music. A fine partnership doing their homeland proud and who certainly knows how to get the grooves flowing.

Farewell Inti sets out with a nice punchy kick drum alongside crispy hi hats, sharp claps and an array of shuffling percussions. We’re teased with subtle references to the bass before mercy is shown and the bassline comes through in all its lush glory. Swirling pads create eerie melodies as that bassline probes its way into your soul. The break dishes out more of the subtle melodies creating a wonderful atmosphere before the chunky basses and rhythmic drums come back for the duration. A top notch slice no doubt.

The Flow Of Let Go boasts a fantastic arrangement made up of intricate drums and some very cool FX and basses. An intensity creeps into the track as the layers build with anticipation taking over as we wait for the bass to burst free. Subtle arpeggio’s rise and fall alongside cool synths while the bass meanders through the sound beautifully. The break dishes out some brilliant synths that are tweaked to perfection resulting in a wall of sound that crashes back into the main groove for the duration. Superb stuff that will not disappoint.
