AUDIO NOIR featuring JIMMIE WESTWOOD – FAR FROM HOME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Taken from his second studio album Artificial Star and featuring a superb vocal from Jimmie Westwood, Audio Noir’s Far From Home gets the remix treatment delivering three very different takes on the original.

Audio Noir’s Rekonstruction intros with a cool 80’s electro styled drum arrangement which delivers a dancey feel to the sound. The drums are the big focus here and are soon joined by equally cool percussions that etch out smooth rhythms throughout. Swirling pads offer up a sweet melodic sequence that fizzles out to be replaced by a heavy hitting gritty bass workout that totally transforms the sound. That gritty bass twists and morphs with an underlying acid tone and sits snuggly with the raspy vocal from Jimmie to the backdrop of some seriously shuffling hi hats and stuttering perc hits. Top notch stuff that will appeal to many for sure.

The legend that is Airwave takes on remix duties on Audio Noir’s Far From Home and delivers another slice of pure progressive breaks that will get any venue to fever pitch. Airwave continues to enjoy a hectic schedule as an artist and DJ with gigs taking him all over the world. How he still finds the time to produce top quality sounds we will never know, but one thing we do know is he never disappoints. His recent showing on Bonzai & Friends 500 with the exclusive Vega Shining, was a most welcome surprise for his army of fans and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more from this guy in the future. On the remix he takes us on an exciting journey that raises the energy levels with that solid breaks arrangement complete with a chunky kick and super cool snares that add a lot of character to the sound. The drums evolve throughout the track with little nuanced beats cropping up here and there while a wonderfully low bass resonates all around. Simple and highly effective short guitar riffs get the musical side flowing alongside Jimmie’s New Order-esque vocal delivery. The verses of the song ride along so smoothly and melt into the sound while the chorus winds up into a brilliant climactic event. Top notch from Laurent yet again, not to be missed.

Bonzai stalwart Crocy shows up on remix duty with a fantastic progressive workout that will light up the floors no doubt. His last outing gave us a brilliant remix on Matan Caspi & Roy Lebens’ Klubnichka as well as an exclusive track for Bonzai & Friends 500 entitled Bedroom Stories. The remix intros with a solid kickdrum that pounds out a nice big chunky beat. Warm synths start to fade in and are soon joined by a rhythmic percussion section that gets the feet moving toward the floor. A phat probing bass comes at us in various layers resulting in a deep driving bassline that really ramps up the energy on the track. Short vocal snippets creep through as the lead synth delivers an electrifying groove. Excellent stuff yet again from Crocy that will be a welcome addition in any set.

RUSLAN VASHKEVICH – ACID PIG (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian DJ and producer Ruslan Vashkevich is back with this superb effort – Acid Pig, which comes backed up with a top quality remix. Ruslan’s last outing – Thought The Smoke touched base with a lot of progressive house heads with support coming in thick and fast. He also had an exclusive track – Hyper Space released on Bonzai & Friends 500 to mark 20 years and the 500th release of the legendary Bonzai Progressive.

The Original Mix takes us on a surreal acid licked progressive journey that will give us plenty to do on the floors. The track intros with a solid kick alongside a subtle percussion that slowly builds bringing a nice and steady rhythmic flow to the sound. Cool FX litter the track and take us to the bubbling bassline that sits lurking in the low end waiting to pounce. Fading through the sound we get our first glimpse at that acid line that will dominate the sound for much of the way as it glides along with an infectious pull. The track takes a sinister turn on the break as a darker sound approaches delivering a hypnotic vibe that lock us in deeper. A superb slice of the darker prog sound that will not disappoint.

Bonzai stalwart Manu Riga teams up with Bosnia and Herzegovina native and Bonzai newcomer Youngen to deliver their Old Pigs Remix. Manu Riga never fails to impress, his sounds always ooze quality and carry a great depth. Currently working on his new album (scheduled for 2016) he has been keeping us up to date with progress and with a couple of tracks almost ready the anticipation is surely building. Even in full on album creating mode, this guys still finds the time to deliver his own remixes as well as collaborative ones also. Youngen recently debuted on Bonzai Progressive with The Long Way Home with a great early response and feedback. No doubt we will be seeing much more of this talented artist. The remix intros with a fantastic kick that pounds out a solid platform for the layers to build. Cool FX and bright hats liven up the rhythm alongside a tight percussion arrangement while subtle risers takes us up to the first break. Here we get our first taste of the bassline and the powerful groove it delivers. A real deep rooted sound comes off the bass as it moves through the groove. On the break, soft Eastern style vocals ring out bringing an enchanted feeling to the track, which stands in contrast to the darker elements. Coming out of the break we are thrust, head first, back into this superb slice of progressive house, a definite must have track.

John 00 Fleming marks his full release debut on Bonzai Progressive with The Lone Ranger which comes backed up with two top quality remixes from Rick Pier O’Neil and Gai Barone. John is one of the most gifted artists of a generation and beyond and he is certainly no stranger to Bonzai as he has seen multiple tracks appear on various compilations over the years. In November 2015 he helped us celebrate our 500th release with an exclusive track – The Dark Ranger. He has also shown up on Progrez, Camouflage, Bonzai Back Catalogue, Bonzai Classics, Green Martian and Bonzai Elemental, in some capacity or other. Over the last few years a strong bond has developed between John’s JOOF label and Bonzai which has seen many artists release top notch sounds between the labels. Described as a national treasure of the trance world by Radio 1’s Pete Tong, John 00 Fleming is an artist who has achieved international success in a career spanning over 20 years without dishonouring his musical essence or fans. With over 10 million album sales and 30 produced mix compilations, Johnis a proven musical pioneer whose essence lies in what his fans call, the JOOF sound. Despite enjoying some commercial success, he remains a very much respected figure on the underground scene. This is down to his integrity in his performances and his no-nonsense take on all things music. His long running JOOF label continues to go from strength to strength and recently he has been sourcing some superb breakthrough up and coming artists who are proving their worth in style.

YOUNGEN – THE LONG WAY HOME FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Hailing from Zvornik, Bosnia and Herzegovina Mladen Jurosevic aka Youngen debuts on Bonzai Progressive with The Long Way Home which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. Mladen got into music from a very young age. At just 10 years old he began to play the accordion and made the switch to synthesiser a few years later. His music collection started with an Astral Projection CD – Trust In Trance – and this set him on a collision course with electronic music which he has a passion for. In the year 2000 he invested in his first music production suite – Propellerhead Reason – and from there he learned the program inside out and started to produce his own sounds. As a teenager, he frequented many techno and psytrance parties which would have an influence in his sounds. Over the years he switched to a more progressive house and deep house output, and now his sound is deep, emotional and dreamy electronic dance music filled with deep grooves and melodic sequences.

JOHN 00 FLEMING – THE LONE RANGER (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

This is down to his integrity in his performances and his no-nonsense take on all things music. His long running JOOF label continues to go from strength to strength and recently he has been sourcing some superb breakthrough up and coming artists who are proving their worth in style. Always worth checking out what’s happening in this guys world.

The Original Mix gives us a clear insight into the JOOF sound, sub shakin bass and scathing synths with everything in between, the perfect recipe for a psy trance trip. The bass rumbles through the track relentlessly as swirling pads etch out cool melodies taking the groove high into the trance stratosphere with those psy undertones coming to the fore. A definite dancefloor destroyer here that you will not want to miss.

Rick Pier O’Neil aka RPO is up first on remix duty and yet again he delivers the goods. These last few years have seen this guy rise up through the ranks to become a hugely respected artist. His style takes on various forms with a focus on the deeper, progressive side of the tracks with the occasional foray into trance. Since a young age he has been hooked on music and countless hours of listening, experimenting and playing has shaped him into the top class artist he is today. He quickly gained a reputation as a talented artist and travelled to the US where he became embedded into the music scene there. He set up two record labels, Pro Records and Garbage Records, tracks from these labels have been hammered by top jocks all over the world. He has seen releases on many top labels including Bonzai Progressive and JOOF Recordings. On the remix he takes the original deeper into the progressive abyss with a solid groove made up of tight drums, rhythmic percussions and a monster bassline that hooks you in for the duration. Beautifully composed melodic phrases litter the sound and on the break they get their chance to shine in the form of rich strings that just float out of the speakers in a trance-like structure. Awesome stuff that you need in your arsenal.

Progressive stalwart Gai Barone is up next on remix duty and as we’ve come to expect from this guy, he surpasses all expectations once more. With such a dynamic range of sound, this guy bridges the gap beautifully between genres creating sublime master strokes of musical genius. He is an artist who is very much at the top of his game and who still has plenty more to offer. His last outing for Bonzai was on the compilation Club Traxx Dark & Deep 2 back in March 2015, since then he has released a plethora of top quality cuts on various labels. The remix intros with a muted kick and a rattling shaker hi hat that gets those feet tapping straight to the floor. The kicks start to find their thump as colourful riffs line up alongside atmospheric pads. The bassline bursts through and dominates the track locking you into its solid progressive groove as the key changes take us up and down. A tight drum arrangement keeps us moving and provides a strong platform for the layers to build. On the break we are led into a dream-like world full of beautifully tweaked melodies that glide across the sound effortlessly before we climax back into the main groove. This one is epic, an absolute stomper that is a must have for a peak time set.

YOUNGEN – THE LONG WAY HOME (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Hailing from Zvornik, Bosnia and Herzegovina Mladen Jurosevic aka Youngen debuts on Bonzai Progressive with The Long Way Home which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. Mladen got into music from a very young age. At just 10 years old he began to play the accordion and made the switch to synthesiser a few years later. His music collection started with an Astral Projection CD – Trust In Trance – and this set him on a collision course with electronic music which he has a passion for. In the year 2000 he invested in his first music production suite – Propellerhead Reason – and from there he learned the program inside out and started to produce his own sounds. As a teenager, he frequented many techno and psytrance parties which would have an influence in his sounds. Over the years he switched to a more progressive house and deep house output, and now his sound is deep, emotional and dreamy electronic dance music filled with deep grooves and melodic sequences.

The Original Mix intros with a soft tone full of warm keys and a rising drum pattern that leads up to a solid kickdrum that packs a strong punch. The atmospherics continue with the kicks leading the way alongside the fledgling bassline. A short break builds us up to the main event where the bassline takes over and drives the solid progressive groove forward. In the background the pads cascade through the sound perfectly and move with the key changes effortlessly. A subtle melodic flavour creeps in as a cool voice teases. The voice stands out on the break as the melodies evolve before we are settled back into the main groove for the duration. Superb stuff that you will not want to miss.

Manu Riga steps up to the desk first with his Ethnotized Remix and yet again we find out just how talented this guy is. As well as knocking out quality remixes and original works, he is currently in the midst of creating an album which we hope will be dropping sometime in early 2016. So far the standard is extremely high and we have no doubt that he will blow us away once more, we can’t wait for this one. His last release was for Bonzai’s 500th where he was allocat6ed no less than three slots which he filled with the superb A Sense of Hope, As We Become One with Matt Holliday and a remix alongside Matt on Phi Phi’s Hiccup. The remix intros with a superb punchy kickdrum and is soon joined by a probing bassline that hypnotizes the mind. Cool rhythmic structures form up with crispy hats and sharp claps alongside a solid Manu-esque tight drum arrangement. The bass dominates the sound and takes us deeper into progressive with every key change. On the break we get a subtle synth driven melody that paves the way for the most amazing female voice that will send shivers down your spine. Another excellent Manu Riga cut that will tear up any floor no doubt.

Australian producer Audio Noir heads up the next remix with Another Audio Noir Trip. This guy is another one who just never lets up on the quality front and who always delivers that extra bit of sound to get a track to its peak. Aside from his latest album – Artificial Star – his Almost Famous Reworked series is proving popular with many tracks showing up in sets all over. Still much more to come from this guy and we always get excited when his latest cuts drop in. Here the remix sets out with a punchy kick and a slicing hat combo complete with a rhythmic percussions. A surreal synth comes through that seems to morph in and out of shape before a rolling bassline takes over and gets the track into its progressive flow. The track goes deep as growling basses begin to emerge and that drum arrangement intensifies. The break offers a little respite and reveals a hypnotic sequence that lures you in only to be thrust back into the solid wall of sound for the duration. Top notch yet again from this guy, not to be missed.

RISE AND FALL – OPEN SYSTEM (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov aka Rise and Fall returns to Bonzai Progressive with another of his spine tingling deep prog monsters – Open System, which comes backed up with two superb remixes. Over the last few years he has been responsible for some memorable remixes as well as a few of his own cuts which have gained a lot of support. His last two outings on remix duty was for Phi Phi’s Hiccup and Audio Noir’s Wunderschong on his Almost Famous Reworked Volume 3, both of which gained a lot of support and features. We last got a taste of his own works with Immersion back in February 2015 and based on that we know we’re in for a real treat yet again.

The Original Mix gets down to business with a charging kick drum that packs a lot of punch with a little help from a rising bass that starts to roll along with an energetic draw. Cool drum and percussion layers form up and settle the track into a nice flowing rhythm. Sweeping FX and dark synths join in and give the track a bit of meat in readiness for an epic ride. An in-your-face synth line opens up and locks you right into the groove as that bass hypnotizes. On the break we are set into a surreal world that takes on an intense vibe as those synths start to wind up once more. Another top notch slice from this guy which will definitely turn a few heads.

The on fire and very much in demand Rick Pier O’Neil steps up to the remix desk and puts one hell of a remix in true RPO style. Having started to DJ at just 14, he soon found he had an addiction to sound and went on to be a sound engineer with his first studio at just 16. Working with major labels he built a solid rep and gained Billboard success. Since 2006 he has delivered a vast amount of quality releases on top labels including Joof Recordings, Clinique Recordings, Suffused Music and his own RPO Records. He has also seen much of his work appear on many Bonzai compilations over the last couple of years. On the remix he takes us deep into the progressive world and holds us there without mercy. Right from the off we get caught up in the depth this track offers. A solid pulsating bass resonates right through the sound as sweeping pads and scathing synths cause havoc in the higher frequencies. On the short breakdowns we get an ear crunching synth that rises to its climax and slams us back into full on mode. To keep this one in check we have a tight drum arrangement with a powerful kick on top that will definitely keep the floors moving.

Leon Krasich is up next with his remix which takes a leaning towards Techno with its hypnotic groove and superb punchy kicks that stand out beautifully. Leon’s last outing – Melancholy, back in September 2015 saw great support and showed off his deeper side. Here he delivers the goods once more, a totally mesmerising experience complete with hypnotic basses and that fantastic kick that just keeps you wanting more. The bass line probes deep into your soul and shows no mercy while in the background we find pitching strings that offer cool contrasts in the sound. A cool display of FX adds wonderful textures to the groove that is shored up by a tight drum workout complete with a smooth rhythm section. The break goes deeper as a droning bass is let loose with FX going off all around, a surreal sequence ensues which is broken by the return of those brilliant kicks. Excellent stuff that will be a welcome addition in any late night session.
