Henrik Kantola, aka Chantola journeyed into the world of electronic music at the start of the millennium.
Inspired by some of the top jocks and a self driving passion, this young Finnish talent began to produce in 2003.
It was not until 2007 that Chantola really found his break.Teaming up with a Helsinki based producer Jussi Vuorivirta, he formed a duo. Spiritus & Asper was born and full tunes began to materialize.
In December 2008, their first completed production with the title Passion was snapped up by Oulu based Wavedata Records. As the momentum flowed, so did the label signings. With tunes released on Spinnin’ Records, Black Hole Recordings, Baroque Records, Mistique Music, Bonzai Music and many more, this young Producer seem to be doing something right.
With several releases in 2009 Chantola really got things going. Having his tracks on several CD compilations and Vinyl. He gained airplay from the biggest stars on the globe like Armin Van Buuren, Markus Schulz, M.I.K.E., Menno De Jon and Eddie Halliwell to name but a few.
2011 promises to be an important year for Chantola as the expectations rise. Keep your ears pealed as you will be sure to hear his tunes working their way into a whole host of DJ sets.
More recently, Chantola’s album “Wrongside_Business” got reviewed by Trance International website and the artist has received support from various names in the scene, like:
David Squillace, Yves Deruyter, Airwave, Jamez, Tim Baker, Graham Gold, James Grindle amongst many others.
This project was founded in 2002 in Turkey.Their first album From East 4 Rest was released in 2008
and their second album Tronic was released in 2009.
Their previous release Mind Bender on Bonzai Progressive reached various sales charts and had support from many artists such as DJ Vibe, James Grindle, Wyndell Long, Airwave, Filth and Splendor, Jamez amongst others.
At the moment the band is working hard on new singles and We Removed Mountains is one of the results of their latest efforts.
The release comes with the original track We Removed Mountains, plus a Thorin remix.
Ibiza 2K11 – Progressive House Frequencies
Featuring original tracks and remixes from Dezarate, Pamuya, Da Othersz, Andrea Saenz vs Ro Garcia, Chantola, Storyteller, Thorin, Chris M, Lemonchill, Jan Peters featuring Aviatrix , MiniTech Project, Marko La Rocca, Erdem Aktas, Mindgamers, Blufeld, Parlange, Kelly O’Brian, Jake Shelton, Gerard Serrat, Jasper Jinx, Alex Torn, Chantola, Artois, Jan van Lier, Verche, Quadran, Manu Riga, Jimmy Galle, Planisphere, Funky Space Pirates, Ran Salman and Nir Azilov featuring Lee Kashir and Uriel.
Long pioneering label group Bonzai have seriously upped their progressive game of late, unearthing some exciting new producers. Belgium’s Manu Riga is one such talent, a totally fresh face on the scene, ‘Time Inbetween’ is as big an introduction as your likely to hear. Chantola drops in the killer ‘NuRave’ remix which we haven’t been able to stop listening, and dancing too since we first pressed play. Dennis Franchi and Chris M also turn in respectable mixes, while Manu’s original completes the package, packing a sitar and psy flavours.. One to watch for the future!
Citizen 42 is the Techno and House alias of Andy MacDougall aka Andy Tau.
Over the last few years Andy has been releasing trance and progressive under the pseudonym Andy Tau and Trilucid, with regular support from top DJ’s and a string of succesful releases on several high profile labels, as well as tracks featuring on Trance Nation mixed by Andy Moor, Gatecrasher Anthems mixed by Paul van Dyk, Trancemaster 7001 and many more.
As well as his involvement in trance Andy is also an accomplished house and techno producer releasing music as Citizen 42, with several tracks lined up for release throughout 2010 and 2011.
In this release for Bonzai Progressive he offers us two original tracks, Sound In A Vacuum and Fibre.
Room305 from Lemonchill is featured on the Album Spotlight section of the popular tranceinternational.com website.
“Over the last couple of months we’ve fallen into step with Bonzai Records modernist, underground take on trance & progressive. Between Miika Kuisma’s album in Jan and last month’s Chantola feature, they’re bringing new shades and complexions to dance music and are doing so again here with LemonChill.
Based in the port city of Haifa, LemonChill producer Idan is living, breathing testimony that all Israeli trance doesn’t necessarily come with a ‘Psy’ prefix. Far from it, in fact. Idan’s biog states he incorporates a mixture of “chillout, electro, down-tempo and dreamy electronic music” into this music, which “is topped with “trance, jazz, industrial, gothic, synthpop, chillout and lounge”.
Well yowsah! A head-spin brew indeed. First and foremost what we’re hearing on his ‘Room305’ album is high-order progressive house & prog-trance, very much of the pulsating and transcendental variety too. The album is the closing release in an LP trilogy arc for which Idan’s pinned down some of the worlds most discerning, netherworld remix names to recalibrate tracks from his 2010 albums ‘Conversations With God’ and ‘Sleeping With Giants’. Steve Baltes, Promid, Arion Grey, Hiroki Oki, Jan Peters and Squared Curves are just some of the dissident studio souls performing reduxes on his music.
‘Room305’ is lying farther of the beaten trance and progressive track than you’re possibly used to. It doesn’t make it any the less worth discovering though. In fact, if anything, it’ll be more satisfying when you do!”
