End of the year compilation, including all the best tracks released in Bonzai Progressive in 2011.
Includes original tracks and remixes from 21street, Phony Orphants, Quadran, Planisphere, Manu Riga, Zas & Sanze presents Mindgamers, Thorin, SynnyS, Citizen 42, Chantola, Heinrich Kantholz & Drill Wagen, Soundmodul & Moffous, Fab Code, Tony Awake & Free Mind, Luca Lombardi, Funky Space Pirates, Cee Cee Cox, Tripzone, Philthy Chit, Dennis Franchi, Storyteller and Daiko.

Launched end 1994 under the name Bonzai Trance Progressive. The name was bit more accurate back in those days. Since then BTP has evolved into BP which is more than just a progressive trance label. Since late 2k9 we decided to distance ourselves from the trance scene since todays trance sound doesn’t really fit out vision anymore. Today the label is not afraid to take a leap into multiple directions, with a touch of electro, minimal, house and any other style – without forgetting the main focus is to deliver a quality progressive sound.

THE ROYAL HEARTS KLUB – ALXHEMY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='29891524']

 

Yahyaa Mahomed was born into a family of drummers. Rhythm was something that came to him effortlessly. He played rhythm guitar in his high school garage band The Strait Jackets with his musical peers at the time. He later moved on to DJ’ing as his love for house music eclipsed almost every facet of his youth.

His professional DJ career began in 2001 at Jozis infamous and legendary after-hours and somewhat left-off-centre nightclub … Hideout -Plot 187-….
He was only 20 years old qt the time and was churning out rhythms and grooves onto the undulated Hideout dance-floor and garden, which was strictly for over 25s only, weekend after weekend.

He innately grasped the Point Blank Club DJ role from The Hideout Family. He remained a resident there for almost 3 years which led, inevitably, to the more studio orientated projects and gigs on SAs trendsetting dance-floors while never straying from his purist approach to dance culture.

Finishing 3rd on the Mr. Spencer Underground DJ voting polls confirmed that he would be a pillar in the future cutting edge brand of the South African dance Republic.

He went on to sign his 1st single, Soul Oasis to the local Mafioso progressive label, Glotech Africa, which made the top 20 in the Euro dance mp3 download charts in the first two weeks of sales, while working with SAs pioneering house artists on other experimental projects.

FAB CODE – MIDNIGHT SHUFFLE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='28070679']

 

At an early age Fab was bewitched by music. At age 6 he was attracted by the sounds of soul, funk and disco playing from his parents jukebox. Rocked to the sounds of Tamla Motown, James Brown, Barry White, KC & The Sunshine Band and later Kraftwerk. All this built up in him to a music culture dominated by rhythm and groove.

In the early 80s he began his DJ career (as DJ Fab) and became resident in a trendy club in Brussels called -Disco Steve-. Residencies and bookings would follow one another until 1988, playing in many local clubs, always quality venues, such as Le Veaudeville, Le Garage, Le Variete, La Pergola, Le Disque Rouge (Fuse), Las Vegas, and many others. The musical styles he spins with finesse and technique are funk, disco and new wave, the hype music for this era.

After hanging up his DJ gloves to explore new musical fields, music production, we see him reappear in 1989 with the release of his debut single -Warbeat- under the pseudonym Bassline Boys. The success was immediate following the mini scandal triggered by this title when it was broadcasted in Chistophe Dechavanne’s -ciel mon mardi- (TF1 – French TV), and the musical response entitled -On se calme (Mr. Dechavanne)- turned into a massive hit in France, selling over 400,000 copies and awarded with a gold record. New Beat, Acid House, Techno and Hardcore releases will succeed during the following years under various monickers, such as Fax Yourself, BSR, Defcon, DSK, Hydrowave, Speed Limit, etc.

In 1994 he decided to return to the turntables, and when he met Claude El Divino (City Parade) he joined the -Underground Energy- team, which allowed him play in one of the most prestigious clubs of Belgium, the Extreme. After a series of bookings with Energy Underground he became a resident at Extreme. Other residencies and bookings followed, including La Raza, Planet Hardcore, Cocoon, Illusion, Zenith, Pavarotti and so on.

After a break from both the deejaying and studio work during the early 2000s, he comes back in 2006 with a new challenge, creating and running his own DJ Bar, which will be called -bar©ode-. The project took its flight, the parties became famous throughout Belgium and abroad, and renowned DJs lined up behind bar©odes decks. Pole Folder (Bedrock Records), Filterheadz (I Love Techno), CP (Pulse Factory) Ecco (KMB records), Rudy (Fuse), Xian (Cafe dAnvers), Milo (You), Dave Kane, Trap House, to name a few.

Inspired by the name of his latest project -bar©ode- DJ Fab became Fab Code, and after the bar closed late 2007, he resumed the hunt for bookings. He joined the team of DJ Ecco called -United Elektro- and also played at -Dance Machine- and -Acid Or Not- parties until the end of 2009, then Fab decided to move and settle in the United Kingdom.

Freshly landed in Manchester, his new home, he went back to work and returned to the recording studio to relaunch his career as a producer / composer. He released his first tracks in 2010 on Belgian label Kiss My Beat Records (KMB) and has now signed with Bonzai Music to release some material on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks and Mint & Mustard labels.

The artist has had support from various DJ´s, such as:
Slam, Nic Fanciulli, Moussa Clarke, Wyndell Long, James Grindle, Graham Gold amongst others.

PHILTHYCHIT – SOUTHBOUND ON THE NORTHERN LINE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='23234651']

 

DJs Philthychit aka Phil Taylor and Chitra Kumar are two people whose sole aim in dance music is to make people realise that music matters. They pride themselves on being clubbers before DJs and it is this perspective on dance music which keeps them rooted to what it is people want to hear when they see them play. Their passion for creating sets with vibrant, energetic and emotive dance music is unique amongst todays up and coming artists.

Moving away from the minimal scene which has for so long confined dance music, they look to bring back the ecstasy into house music through their performances. With their influences spanning a wide range; deep into trance and progressive house of an ERIC PRYDZ nature, to the raw techno influences of people such as SLAM, their unique sound embodies everything that dance music should do. Their ability to bring together euphoric, thought provoking melodies and chunky driving bass-lines through seamless progressive mixing using loops and effects imaginatively, keep the crowd engaged at every level.

Through their own hard work they have created one of Manchester’s finest electronic nights with a zealous following. People travel from both ends of the country each month just to be a part of the special clubbing community which they have created in AGENDA. Using this as a platform to take their message to the dance hungry folk of Manchester they have gained an underground reputation for their ability to mix at a professional level and play sets the likes of which they can confidently say cannot be heard anywhere else. The atmosphere they create for clubbers is one of unity and completeness, something they were proud to share with the likes of DJ HARRI, the founder of Glasgow’s legendary underground night Sub Culture @The (infamous) Sub Club, when he played with them for Agenda’s 1st birthday last November.

This year will see Philthychit grow from strength to strength, with top artists from labels such as Bedrock and Anjuna Beats all waiting to play at AGENDA and take on their unique sound. They represent artists who are to be distinguished solely by their exceptional natural talent and the musical principles they hold rather than hype or fashion. To think that they have achieved so much yet they have only been DJing for over 18 months speaks volumes about their passion and ability to perform.
