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 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

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.

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.

The Original Mix intros with a wonderfully deep and atmospheric vibe as lush tones are met with sporadic percussions and cool FX. Subdued kick drums come into play and we find ourselves being drawn into the infectious progressive groove. The expertly crafted layers build slowly to become a full on pumping groove that will surely have the floors filled. At the midway point a fantastic array of soothing melodies come though, made up of brash synths, soft voices and swirling pads. A top notch sound that is a definite must have track for any prog set.

Manu Riga turns up on remix duty and delivers his superb Sunshine Remix. A long time friend of Don, the guys have collaborated on the Twins In Mind project where they churned out some top quality chillout and downtempo cuts on Bonzai Elemental. Adriaan recently enjoyed the release of his first album – Surrounded – and now we can’t wait until the next one. Currently working on new material as well as other remixes, we always look forward to the pure quality in this guy’s productions. The remix intros with some very nicely crafted kicks that are joined by a subtle display of hats and percussions. A deep, chugging bassline comes through and dominates the sound, locking us into its hypnotic groove. The track slowly builds and we’re treated to some very nice progressive sounds that lead us into the first break where beautifully crafted and very subtle melodies come into play before we are thrust back into the main groove. Yet again we find ourselves completely hooked on the Manu Riga sound, and this one heralds a new era in that sound, one which his army of fans will undoubtedly embrace.

SURVEYOR MODE – SEYFRIED (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matteo Tonioli and Marco Nascetti aka Surveyor Mode return to Bonzai Progressive with this two tracker entitled Seyfried. The guys’ last outing VV EP, gained great support across the board and they’re quickly becoming a name synonymous with tech infused progressive vibes. Great to see them back once again and we’ll no doubt be seeing much more from them in the future.

Seyfried is a straight up progressive monster that packs in a huge punch. Right from the off you find yourself in the middle of a progressive storm as a multitude of sounds swirl overhead. Big punchy kick drums lead the way alongside a hypnotically charged bass that probes through every crevice on the low end. A distinct intensity fills the sound which is spurred on by cool FX and a cosmic synth riff. The break unleashes a fantastic gated synth sequence that is accompanied by a deep growling synth before the beats return and the track gets back into full swing. A definite must have, no doubt.

State 526 takes the deep progressive house approach and delivers a solid all rounder that will fit any late night set for sure. Huge, powerful, punchy kick drums are at play here and they are complimented with a shuffling hat sequence and a superb deep bassline. Melodic synths cascade up and down in an arp style on the break as swirling pads lure us in with their lush tones before those massive kicks come back to take control. Wonderfully mesmerizing, the perfect slice for any set.

Kevin Vega remains a stalwart around the Bonzai office, he has graced various labels over the years and always delivers on the quality front. He recently featured on the fantastic Bonzai & Friends 500 Remixes compilation as well as many other compilations over the years. Always a pleasure to have Kevin’s work drop into the inbox and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.

Geisha intros with a pure progressive vibe that builds beautifully into a mesmerizing and tantalising musical wonderland complete with a plethora of rich sounds. From the tight drum arrangements to the warm, lush basses and cascading arps, this one goes deep creating a wonderful layered sound that will move you. The groove just rocks and we’ve no doubt that this one will grab a lot of attention.

The Original Mix of Elysium is up next and straight away we get locked onto the hypnotic groove this one offers. The intro subtly builds a solid progressive flowing track that lulls you in with its warmth and enticing rhythms. The track layers up sound after sound effortlessly until we’re surrounded in a colourful musical kaleidoscope. The break throws up some cool melodies and voices that soothe the soul, while a gated synth begins its mesmerizing trek into our minds. A definite must have expertly crafted track here that is not to be missed.

Jakhira steps up to remix duties with his superb Secret Sanctuary Remix. It’s been a while since we last saw Jack, it was back in September 2015 when he gave us the brilliant Be As One, which gained support across the board. When it comes to quality sounds this guy knows no bounds and we’re delighted to see him back once more. The remix intros with a smooth percussion led arrangement before a nice chunky kick drum comes through and takes over. Bright crispy hi hats are stacked up against the percussions to deliver a fine flowing rhythm. A deep, warm bassline comes into play and sets the track on its deep progressive course. Beautifully crafted melodies swirl overhead amidst an array of rich pads and subtle synth stabs. The break goes into a fantastically constructed melodic sequence that lets you dream away before those chunky beats return for the duration. Top notch stuff perfect for any terrace set this summer.

PERSYA – HEIDE EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bologna based producer Persya is back at Bonzai Progressive with the superb three tracker entitled Heide EP. Persya debuted on BP back at the start of 2016 with Expecto which gained great support from many jocks with its wonderfully progressive grooves. This time out he fuses a tech house bead into his progressive sound with stunning results.

Heide dishes out a deep progressive vibe right from the outset as phat chunky beats are lined up against a cosmic FX, sharp claps and crispy hats. Melodic synths fade in and tease us with an impending euphoria that is enhanced by a fantastic bassline. The bassline carries the track along perfectly and you’ll find yourself locked on to its melodic tones and strong probing nature. The break delivers the melody in all its glory with added vocals and rich strings to really build the vibe before the beats come back and carry us along for the ride once more. A monster progressive sound that will definitely turn a few heads.

Imago intros with a very cool percussion led sequence that builds into a solid and tight arrangement that gets the rhythm flowing nicely. A nice and big chunky kick drum takes over alongside shuffling hats that will definitely make you move your feet. The bassline delivers the goods here though, a solid, pulsing bass that oozes tech house will surely rock any floor to its foundations. A very familiar vocal one shot comes to the fore to bring back those retro memories and before you know it you’re totally hooked on the vibe. Beautifully crafted sounds and perfectly executed arrangements will have this one at the top of any set, one to watch for sure.

Shanalot sets off with a punchy kick drum with a cool filtered synth that piques the interest right from the off. Cool percussions layer up bringing a tight rhythmic flow to the sound. A monster bassline makes its way into the groove and delivers a perfectly balanced low end sound that brings warmth and depth. As we are drawn deeper into the progressive abyss we are faced with surreal melodic sequences that mesmerize and captivate adding some beautiful textures to the sound. One for the late night sessions here, a must have.

NICO PARISI – CHILDREN OF AFRICA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Over the last number of years we’ve been privileged to have released many cuts from Nico Parisi. His steadfast dedication and attention to the detail is his sound is truly admirable. His latest slice – Children Of Africa is no exception as once again we are treated to a showcase of his talent in true progressive style. We’ve drafted in some top notch artists Michael Berklin, Surveyor Mode and A.R.E.S. who all delivered superb remixes for this one while staying true to the original.

The Original Mix settles into deep rhythmic progressive vibe right from the outset. Clanging synths break through the sub level bass creating a beautiful contrast in the sound. The bassline pumps out its solid low end groove for the duration keeping a grip on your soul. An intense feeling comes off the sound that both captivates and mystifies. On the break the bass fades out leaving a warping synth and some surreal recording of happy adults and children that adds a wonderful character to the sound. The bass fades back in and the beats take over once more and we find ourselves immersed in the groove to the end. A simply fantastic slice of deep progressive that is not to be missed.

Cyprus based Michael Berklin is doing the rounds on our labels, since his debut back in 2013 on Eyepatch with S.O.P.A. EP and then a stint over at Green Martian with Citizens Of The Earth Vol.1 in the Summer of 2015. Now he has made the leap to our flagship Bonzai Progressive with his fantastic remix which intros with a pumping kick drum and low end bass pulse combi. Subtle percussions begin to fade up and an air of intensity comes through. Gated vocals drift in and out of the sound as the layers build creating a big and powerful progressive groove. Laughing children and adults are scattered throughout the track keeping the character of the original intact. Distant synths play out a hypnotic melody but it’s the intense basses that rule the groove here. Superb stuff and a must have track no doubt.

Italian DJ’s and producers Matteo Tonioli and Marco Nascetti aka Surveyor Mode return to Bonzai Progressive with another tasty remix treat for our listening pleasure. The guys last appearance was back at the start of 2016 with their VV EP and we’ve no doubt that they’ll rock floors once more with this one. The remix intros with a powerful kick drum that is laced with sub level bass creating huge punch that will deliver feet to the floors for sure. Stabbing synths are also at work and sit alongside looping vocals that carry the character of the original mix beautifully. Shuffling hat sequences and tight percussions provide a steady flowing rhythm as this dark progressive vibe builds. The break throws up a surreal synth sequence that mesmerizes before we slam right back into full on mode. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Ariel Parra aka A.R.E.S steps up to the remix desk with a superb slice that will definitely get the floors moving. We first got a glimpse of this talented artist back in March 2015 on our Club Traxx Progressive House 14 compilation before he showed up with his debut on Progrez with Belisha Beacon in August 2015. We know we’re in for one hell of a ride when this guy gets his progressive groove on so buckle up and enjoy. The remix sets off with a massive punchy kick drum that is joined by a monster bassline that dominates the sound brilliantly. Percussive elements and shuffling hats layer up to deliver a strong rhythm while the bass rules the low end. Deep droning synths create a haunting atmosphere that blends perfectly with the deeper groove that weaves throughout the sound. The track boasts a solid progressive vibe but it’s laced with techno giving it a powerful edge that will appeal to many for sure.

JESPER MAUERHOFF – CHASING FLASH (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Dutch DJ and producer Jesper Mauerhoff is back at Bonzai Progressive with another of his delectable cuts – the two tracker Chasing Flash – to get the progressive juices flowing on the floors. Last time out was back in November 2015 when we were treated to the superb Trip To Strip which gained great support across the board.

Chasing Flash delivers a solid progressive vibe that draws out a retro kinda feeling that can be found in the structure of the track and amongst the various expertly crafted sounds. The bassline carries the progressive groove in style with its warming tones and solid construction while the tight knit beats provide a fine flowing rhythm. A hypnotic synth arp prevails throughout the track drawing you in deeper while sublime pads create a wonderfully textured groove. A definite must have track.

Elephant intros with a big chunky kick drum and deep throbbing bassline creating a massive progressive vibe with a fantastic retro them that runs through it in the form of a wonderful acid line. Tight beats are at play also and keep the rhythm on point as the lower frequencies go to work. At the higher end a superb synth riff blasts into the track and teases us with its hands in the air capabilities only to fade away leaving us wanting more. This track is huge, this track is not to be missed, the crowds are gonna love this one. The perfect mid set monster.
