NICO PARISI – ATTICA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bonzai stalwart Nico Parisi is back with another of his beautifully refined progressive cuts. Attica follows his last cut – Children Of Africa – and features three top notch remixes from Gai Barone, Robert R. Hardy and Rise and Fall. He also recently showed up for remix duties himself on AudioStorm’s Underground Culture, and we’re delighted that he continues to offer only the finest quality sounds. Nico remains a solid figure on the DJing front, he certainly gets around and is a solid figure at many festivals and club venues.

If you’re after smooth progressive grooves then the Original Mix is for you. Right from the off you can feel the sound glide along with polished edges that are quite inviting. The track goes deep courtesy of a bassy percussion that is accompanied by a more gritty bassline while hypnotic and melodic arps remain a constant throughout. On the break those melodies lead the way against a fine display of deep basses before the nice and chunky kicks take us back into full on mode. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Super talented progressive guru Gai Barone steps up to the remix plate with his Blue Notes Remix. Once again we are witness to the sheer quality this guy continues to offer. His last outing on Bonzai was on our Bonzai & Friends – 500 – Remixes release, which to our delight has performed very well indeed thanks to artists like Gai. Much revered among his peers this guy toils hard bringing us only the very best sounds and no doubt he will be back to Bonzai at some point in the future, all we can say is, he’s always welcome. The remix turns up the heat a little and gets right into a fine flowing progressive slice from the outset. Tight drums and percussions deliver a cool rhythmic flow as deep basses fade in. In the background a static arp pays homage to the original while a much grittier bass starts to creep in. At the midway point the sound dynamic shifts to include a stunning sequence filled with mismatched keys that send out an almost chaotic vibe while retaining the progressive groove. A stunner for sure, this one is a definite must have.

Reis Robert aka Robert R. Hardy returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duties. His last outing came back in May 2015 with a fine remix on K.Oshkin’s Assol. Prior to this he has shown up on various compilations for Green Martian. A hugely popular artist on the scene and one we’re delighted to welcome back. On the remix here we’re treated to some very nice progressive vibes indeed as a much moodier sound is delivered. Chunky kick drums lead the way alongside bright, crispy and shuffling hi hats with a tight percussion section adding to the smooth rhythms. The big focus is on the basses, they dominate the sound perfectly and they’re matched with some equally impressive synths that mesmerize with every note. Wonderfully atmospheric deep prog grooves for those late night sessions.

Rise And Fall is back with another of his outstanding remix contributions. A very popular Bonzai artist, this guy has notched up quite an impressive back catalogue in just a few short years at BP. His original works are consistently high quality and gain the support of many, much like his remix work. His last outing – Genetic – featured heavily in many sets and topped numerous charts, a very much in demand artist, it’s always a pleasure when his audio drops into the mailbox. As you’d expect the groove goes deep here, progressively deep. The remix intros with a solid kick against a pulsing bass while various percussive elements weave in and out of the arrangement. A mesmerizing arp starts to flare up and is joined by quality synths and swirling pads. An intense build up brings us to the main part of the track where the bass comes into full effect for the duration. Such a stunning piece that will most definitely find its way into many sets.

AUDIOSTORM – UNDERGROUND CULTURE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

AudioStorm aka Ognjen Vukovic returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Underground Culture and brings along three top notch remixes from Nico Parisi, Owersound and Experimental Feelings for the ride. We last saw AudiStorm back towards the end of 2015 with his debut album First Step which gained a great deal of support from many quarters. Since then he has appeared on various compilations including the mega Bonzai & Friends 500 Remixes.

The Original Mix takes us on a sublime journey, deep into the melodic side of progressive house complete with a deep lush groove that just wraps itself around you. On the low end we’re treated to a wonderfully robust bassline that meanders through the sound effortlessly while on the mid range we’re faced with some beautiful melodic sequences in the form of rich strings and cascading arps. Keeping the track bound together we have tight beats that offer up a solid flowing rhythm creating that brilliant lush groove. Awesome stuff once more from this guy, a definite must have.

Nico Parisi is up first on the remix and once more he holds nothing back on the quality front. Nico’s last outing was in June 2016 with the superb Children Of Africa which definitely turned a few heads with a lot of attention, a feature on Beatport among others. Also in June Nico played at one of the best Summer festivals Europe, namely Legacy Festival. He made his third appearance there this year and is a testament to his dedication to playing out in front of crowds. On the remix here Nico employs his own special brand of progressive house, one that encompasses all manners of feelings and styles. The track intros with a solid thumping kick drum alongside a crispy hi hat giving off a classic vibe. A deep droning bassline joins in and becomes the star of the show as it draws us into its powerful grip. Cool melodies float through the sound and are delivered by organic synth arps adding fantastic colourful textures. This one is a beast of a tune that will rock any floor, anywhere.

One of Europe’s freshest and newest producers on the block, Arthur Minnahmetov aka Owersound debuts on Bonzai Progressive with a divine remix that will most definitely rock your progressive world and more. This exciting Russian DJ and producer is already making his mark on the scene with releases on various labels and gigs at top venues. DJing was his priority until he discovered a knack for writing his own music, and in 2007 he started to learn everything he could about this and he focused on deep house, tech house and techno. Nowadays he is into progressive house and this remix will tell you all you need to know about that. The track intros with a brash pumping kick drum and crispy hat combo alongside cool percussions and snappy snare rolls. The drum section delivers a fine flowing rhythm for the track to build on. Swirling pads stand out as strange voices come through creating a surreal atmosphere with a sharp bite. The bassline comes in to warm things up a bit and delivers a solid deep groove. In the background we get some very cool arp melodies that capture the imagination. Those melodies are further enhanced by the note changes on the bassline generating a wonderful contrast. Top notch sounds that are destined for many sets no doubt.

Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez aka Experimental Feelings is back and fresh from his last cut – Beautiful Eyes, in June 2016. As ever we are treated to a fine display of production from this guy. His originals stand out from the crowd for having a surreal atmospheric edge as well as tight arrangements. He is also well respected as remixer and he has turned around many tracks with his unique brand of progressive. On the remix here he does the original much justice by staying true to the original cut. A wonderfully melodic intro greets us as mesmeric swelling pads are joined by sweet high pitched notes that feed right into your soul. A nice well rounded kick drum comes through with just the right amount of punch and is soon joined by expertly crafted percussions. A deep and powerful bassline swells up from the depths creating a superb deep progressive groove. As the layers build the track goes deeper as that bass dominates, staying the course and only fading on the break to allow the pads and melodies to shine once more. A truly outstanding slice of prog that you do not want to miss.

KÖSCHK – DIWÄN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Köschk returns to Bonzai Progressive with a full debut in the form of the superb Diwän which comes backed up with two top notch remixes from Manu Riga and Dennis Franchi. We last saw Köschk back in May 2016 on remix duties for Rise and Fall’s Genetic which generated great support across the board. First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a muted kick drum alongside subtle percussions that build slowly into a nice shuffling rhythmic flow. A fading in bass pluck delivers a superb energetic sound that gets into every nook and cranny before being joined by a warmer, more lush bass. Progressive vibes ooze out of this one, with the bass shoring up the low end we’re treated to some sublime swirling pads and strings that bring a cosmic vibe into play. Bright crispy hats are moved into double time as we find ourselves totally hooked while our feet do the dancing. The break offers up a beautifully surreal moment as the pads take over before we get slammed back into full on mode. Top notch stuff you do not want to miss.

Fresh off the back of his much anticipated album – Surrounded – Manu Riga is back with his outstanding Analogics Remix. With the album release still generating a buzz by topping many charts, Adriaan Baussens wastes no time in churning out yet more quality cuts. At the start of 2016 we said that this would be a huge year for this guy, and at the midway point this could not be more true. The support for Manu Riga continues to rise and with remixes like this one it will no doubt go through the roof by the end of the year. We couldn’t be more proud of this guy and what he brings to the label, to ourselves personally and to his ever growing army of fans across the world. The remix intros with a dark bass sound that traps us into the deep progressive vibe it creates. Nice chunky kick drums come into play as various otherworldly sounds are introduced. On the low end the bassline offers a wonderfully deep groove that resonates perfectly through the track as expertly crafted FX and sweeping pads do their thing. Manu brings in a beautiful melodic sequence that contrasts brilliantly with the deeper elements in a melancholic way. On the break we are drawn deeper into the groove as those pads work their magic and the bass fades in slowly taking us back into full on mode and those tasty beats. Simply stunning yet again from the master, a must have for sure.

Dennis Franchi returns and he knocks up a superb remix which comes not long after his latest cut – Into Place featuring Angelo Dobric saw some fantastic reviews becoming a firm favourite among many. It’s always an exciting time when this guy comes along for the ride, delivering his own brand of techno that is guaranteed to get the sweat dripping off the ceilings. On the remix here, Dennis offers up a techno approach that will most definitely get any floor rocking. Punchy kick drums and crispy hats lead the way as hypnotic sounds go off in the background. A beautifully subtle bassline eases its way into the groove and is joined by some cool synth sounds that add wonderful textures. The bassline beefs up to dominate the groove and as the layers build we find ourselves locked on. Some excellent techno sounds lurk around here and they capture the essence of the original brilliantly. The break takes us further down the rabbit hole with a relentless vocal and swirling pads and FX. A super tight production that will find its way into many late night sets.

Fresh off the back of his BP debut back in May 2016 with Eiffel Tower, this guy certainly knows how to rock out the progressive vibes.

Forbidden Planet sets off with an infectious synth line that draws you in with its sonic vibe as nice chunky kick drums and crispy hi hats come through delivering a smooth flowing rhythm.

The progressive elements in the track blend perfectly and you soon find yourself totally immersed in the groove.

MICHAEL BERKLIN – ICHURI (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Michael Berklin returns to Bonzai Progressive and shows off his producer skills with the superb Ichuri which comes backed up with a stunning remix from Steve Sai. His last outing was on remix duties for Nico Parisi’s Children Of Africa which gained a great deal of support and showcased his superb talent perfectly. This time around we treated to more quality progressive vibes that is sure to turn a few heads.

The Original Mix opens with a filtered kick drum and sharp snare on the downbeat as crispy hats fade in. The progressive groove soon gets into full on mode as a wonderful deep bass is layered up against mesmerizing synths and pads. A nice chunky kick drum beefs up the vibe alongside swirling pads that deliver a mystical ambience aided by subtle melodies. A solid slice of prog that will be a welcome addition in any late night set.

The ever impressive Steve Sai steps up for remix duties and once again we are allowed to witness the sheer quality of his work in the progressive tech realm. Steve has been dishing out superb cuts for Bonzai over a good number of years now and he never disappoints. A hard working artist, Steve releases on various other labels and tours regularly playing top venues around Europe and beyond. The remix is a wonderful trek deep into the progressive tech abyss. The intro boasts a punchy kick drum which is accompanied by a warm bass overlay while shuffling, rhythmic hi hats form up. Rich, swirling pads float over head as a deep piano chord lurks on the 8th bar adding a touch of intrigue. The bassline transforms into a fantastic chugging affair that delivers a splash of energy into the track. A wonderful display of progressive meets tech house that is a definite must have.

SAMOTAREV – VOICE OF PHANGAN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Samotarev is back at Bonzai Progressive with the superb Voice Of Phangan. This is a special one from Alexey and it’s clear to see how much of his talent he put into it. The track oozes quality and delivers a solid progressive flow from start to finish. Alexey gives special thanks to Julie Forrest who recorded her magical Nepalese instruments which are used so beautifully in the track. His last outing was on remix duties for Nico Parisi’s Raklet back at the start of 2016, great to see him back once more and we’re sure we’ll be seeing and hearing much more in the future.

The Original Mix intros with a nice punchy kick drum and a dark synth sound that mesmerizes. A sharp clap comes though which is quickly followed by a rising pad that brings a cinematic quality to the sound. A superb deep bassline brings a warming glow to the track and we soon find ourselves locked into a solid deep progressive groove. On the break we are treated to some beautiful sounds courtesy of an array of Nepalese instruments recorded by Julie Forrest, these sound are the perfect accompaniment to the deep and dark grooves on offer. A top notch cut and a definite must have.

UK DJ and producer Jamie Baggotts steps up to the remix plate and delivers another one of his solid progressive cuts for our listening pleasure. His last showing on Bonzai Progressive was on the remix for Rise and Fall’s New Impressions EP, which gained a great deal of support from across the board. Always a pleasure to have this guy’s work drop into the mailbox and no doubt we’ll be in for more tasty treats in the future. As ever we are treated to some tasty progressive treats from Jamie as he pulls out all the stops to deliver a beautifully constructed arrangement of sounds. Right from the off we get a sense of the deep prog vibes on offer as chunky kick are met with crispy hi hats and a swirling pad in the background. An array of cool percussions keeps the rhythm flowing as a stuttering synth line comes into play. This is soon followed by a fantastic deep throbbing bassline that takes us so deep into the abyss we’re in danger of never returning. A brilliant display once more that is not to be missed.

Prolific Bonzai artist Audio Noir is back once more on remix duty with his epic 20 minutes plus – An Audio Noir Soundtrack. This guy is surely one of the hardest working artists on the scene as far as music production is concerned. He churns out the quality at every turn, and this was shown on his last cut – Progressive Tales 2 as well as a remix pack of his From London To Moscow. He also delivered a sublime double header DJ mix for our In The Mix – Progressive Sessions series which gained some great support. This particular mix took just under one month to complete and contains hundreds of sounds. The idea was to have a long, intense Zen-like build up and then transition into a full on prog banger, we think you’ll agree that this concept has been realised to the fullest. The remix intros with a very cool spoken vocal that brings an interesting narrative to the track. In the background we have a chaotic, noisy sequence that is joined by a deep droning bass pad. The vocal continues as various other sounds come through including some superb melodic synths and FX. This kaleidoscope of sound comes together to form a sublime and surreal experience that has you completely hooked for the duration. This epic monster is not done yet though, at the midway point we get down to the business of pumping beats and tight percussions that create a flowing rhythm. The warm bass and melodic synths takeover and we’re hypnotized by the solid progressive groove that follows. A simply stunning piece that will most definitely grab the attention of many, especially the technically minded, experimental DJ’s out there.

DV1 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bonzai Progressive is proud to present DV1, a special release featuring three top artists and resident DJ’s delivering the sounds that bedecked the DV1 club in Lyon, France. The team at DV1 are a tight knit collective who specialise in quality and in creating the ultimate club experience for an army of pure breed clubbers. In recent times the club has had to close its doors, after 15 years of operation hosting some of the very best techno parties in France. The club was built up to become one of the best underground venues in France and no doubt this release will serve as a timely reminder for some of the memories created within its walls. The organisers behind the club night are actively looking for a new venue and there is hope of a new concept called DV1 Outdoor which will hopefully get off the ground in the coming months. To the artists, the DJ’s and fans, this is DV1.

DON LONGTON – IT’S POURING OUTSIDE FEATURED BY BEATPORT

South Shore, Nova Scotia based producer Don Longton debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic It’s Pouring Outside, and this one features a top notch remix from long time friend and Twins In Mind partner Manu Riga. The son of a Jazz pianist, Don was drawn into the synth sound since the early 70’s and was fascinated by the sounds of ELP, Rick Wakeman and others. He then caught the bug and started to produce his own sounds during the MIDI boom. Although he was constantly on the move, moving to new homes, he continued to play music. In 2007 he joined Twins In Mind with Manu Riga – aka prolific Belgian artist and Bonzai stalwart Adriaan Baussens – and later he went on to focus more on the progressive house side of things. In his own words Don is inspired by the incredible talent within the music industry and he is on course to unleash his own sound on the world. Much more to come from Don in the future so it’s well worth watching this space.

Don Longton – It’s Pouring Outside, out this week on Bonzai Progressive, is featured by Beatport in the Progressive House genre page!
