MANU RIGA & ALEX VIDAL – WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Manu Riga teams up with fellow producer Alex Vidal for their first tantalising collaboration on When Worlds Collide. The constant force that is Manu Riga never ceases to amaze, his productions always come in at the high quality end and leaves us stunned with their intricate progressive prowess. To top it all off he now appears as a DJ on many radio shows on the likes of Progressive Beats, Pure FM and Bonzai Basik Beats. 2015 has also seen Manu hit the clubs but the big event of the year has to be his appearance at Tomorrowland alongside studio partner Matt Holliday, something we know he is very much looking forward to and will no doubt relish the experience. The hugely impressive Spanish DJ and producer, Alex Vidal is fresh off the back of his last outing Mesmerized. We know what this guy brings to the table and can safely say that these two guys will definitely hit the progressive sweet spot and we look forward to more from these two in the future. Aside from the Original Mix, the guy’s branch out with their own takes on this monster progressive cut.

The Original intros with a nice and chunky kick and a sharp closed hat as a beautiful, swirling pad begins to swell. Cool and very subtle percussive elements are introduced and sets the rhythm up nicely as the layers build. A deep droning bass takes over and the deep progressive groove is set in stone. In contrast we are treated to some wonderfully rich plucked notes which are accompanied by the most stunning female vocal that will get the hairs raised on the back of your neck for sure. Little nuanced sounds filter through, like the gentle arps that just glide across the sound. A superb piano melody takes the centre of attention on the break alongside that lush bass before we get thrown right back into the main groove for the duration. A definite must have track in your box this Summer, the floors are gonna love this one.

Our first remix comes from Alex with his Inner Void Remix. The track sets of with a punchy kick alongside a wonderfully rich deep bass that captivates from the moment it arises. Soft hats and cool percussions deliver a solid and steady rhythm as the bass begins to transform into s full on driving progressive groove. Subtle melodic arps fill the background and offer a cool contrast between the low and high frequencies of the sound. On the break we are thrown into a world filled with beautifully sweet sounds and prominent tribal edged drums. The melodies float across the sound and keep your attention before taking a back seat once again to allow the driving bass and pounding kicks to shine. An absolute belter of a track you will not want to miss.

Next up we have Manu’s Balearic Dreams which intros with a cool drum filled sequence alongside some very cool synths and stunning FX. A very intense groove is borne out of those deeper elements that shore up this solid groove as tight breaks carry the track forward. The impressively intricate structure will definitely leave you wanting more as you discover new and exciting patterns with each listen. Manu is a master of the drum sequence and here he holds no bars as those breaks deliver a very solid and upbeat rhythm. Trademark voices come through and really capture the imagination which is given a huge boost with the addition of a fantastic ethnic guitar riff. On the break we descend into a melodic filled world that will touch your soul with a sense of euphoria before those tough breaks make their way through once more. A superb display of Balearic vibes that will no doubt feature heavily on the terraces this Summer.

ALEXEY LISIN & ANGE – VESNA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Alexey Lisin marks his full debut on Bonzai Progressive with Vesna and enlists the fantastic vocal talents of Ange along the way. Not quite his first appearance as he got the Zen remix treatment on Audio Noir’s superb album, Now & Zen. Having burst onto the scene back in November 2014 with the awesome Moscow Calling, and following that up with the equally impressive Desolation at the start of January 2015, we’ve certainly got a taste of this guys musical prowess on the Techno front. With a shifting towards progressive house on his Baroque Records release, Siberia, we are seeing a different side to this up and coming producer, plenty more to come no doubt so stay tuned. Popular vocalist Ange returns to Bonzai after her debut appearance with Yuriy From Russia back in 2013 on Do You Feel. Over the last several years she has worked with a whole host of top class artists with her distinct vocal style and her talents have been showcased on many labels worldwide.

The Original Mix takes us deep into progressive with a beautifully hypnotic vibe that really captivates with the sultry vocals of Ange. Tight percussions and solid drums deliver a brilliant rhythmic vibe that will definitely have the floors shakin. The deep basses sit back teasingly and allow the synth elements to shine. On the break we get locked into those mesmerizing vocals that just melt into the sound effortlessly. A driving slice of progressive that will surely be a hit with the purists.

Yuriy From Russia steps up to the remix plate and shows us yet again his amazing talents. His last outing was on remix duty for Wild Guess’ Trysal 35 back in March this year and since then his tracks have appeared on various compilations among other releases on different labels. The remix intros with a well rounded kick that is joined by a subtle shuffling hat. A melodic arp fades through as a deep rooted bassline takes hold and dominates with its pulsing probing prowess. The vocals from Ange are simply stunning, her voice seems to materialise from nowhere and blend beautifully into the sound providing a melancholic twist on the melodic nature of the track. Such a wonderful, dreamy vibe here that will definitely appeal to many.

Australia’s Audio Noir serves up another of his classic Rekonstruction’s. This guy has been racking up quite a back catalogue of late. 2015 is turning out to be a very busy year as he delivered his first studio album amongst a multitude of remixes. Already working on his second album we are very excited about what this guy will throw at us next. The remix here ramps up the energy levels with a superb, driving groove filled with a tight drum arrangement and a tough edged bassline that sits in contrast with the brighter, more melodic elements of the track. On the break we are led into a world full of beautiful melodies and deep, warm basses before we get shoved back into the main groove where a brilliant gated synth lead takes over. Ange’s vocal comes through with an air of innocence that works very well with the progressive vibe. Another top notch cut from down under, not to be missed.

Russian producer Zatonsky debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this fantastic remix that really raises the bar in the world of prog. With a very impressive list of tracks across various labels we can see why this guy was drafted in for remix duty. The remix opens with a deep, lush piano chord which is joined by the melancholic vocals from Ange that really captivate the imagination. A bright melodic piano provides a stark, contrasting dynamic to the sound as the pianos fade and the track kicks in. Expertly crafted drum arrangements ensue with a deep pulsating bass in tow as the pianos return alongside that stunning vocal. A simply amazing piece of deep progressive vocal house that will capture a lot of attention for sure.

This guy is into all sorts of styles from Deep House and Tech through to Acid and Detroit Techno. In 2013 he released Yellow Brick on Piko Music Deep with much acclaim from within the Deep House world. Plastic Vibes comes backed up with two top class remixes from Bonzai stalwarts Crocy and Manuel Palmitesta.

The Original Mix of Plastic Vibes sets out with a crispy fresh round of bright percussions alongside a smooth warming pad and punchy kicks. The track breaks to reveal a powerful, probing bass that punches through the sound and takes full control of the groove. You will soon find yourself locked into the dancey house grooves on offer here as the synths deliver some cool chord play that give the sound contrasting textures. Definitely a must have track for the bouncey floors.

Manuel Palmitesta returns to Bonzai Progressive with another of his superb remixes. Here he transforms the original into a deep fuelled progressive house vibe that delivers a sublime experience. Right from the off the tone is set to deep with those long release bass notes and chunky bass drums. The track settles into a tight groove that keeps going deeper with the introduction of a sinister, distant vocal as haunting FX swirl around. An awesome slice of deep progressive house that will be the perfect fodder for those late night escapades.

Crocy turns up for remix duty and delivers the goods once more. The remix intros with a classic kick and hat combi which is joined by warm fading chords that mesmerize the mind beautifully. A big phat chunky bassline comes through and gives the track a cool tougher edge which contrasts perfectly with those lush keys. On the break a retro styled synth takes over and winds its way through the track for the duration. The layers build brilliantly and bring new textures that give the sound a richness to be enjoyed on the floors. Top notch stuff yet again from this guy, a must have.

ALEX VIDAL – MESMERIZED (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Spanish DJ and producer Alex Vidal churns out another top notch cut on Bonzai Progressive with Mesmerized. Just a few months ago we saw him on remix duty for Audio Noir’s, Life which proved very popular indeed on many playlists. Since then he has racked up appearances on our Ibiza 2015 compilation as well as showings on Green Martian’s Afterhour Trax 15 and 16.

Mesmerized takes us down into the progressive abyss with a truly captivating array of sounds that blend effortlessly into a superb construction. Right from the off as the percussions form up to the backdrop of an atmospheric pad and the fading in punchy kicks, we get locked into the groove. A proper, raw, dirty bass picks up the pace and really delivers the goods to keep asses shakin’. Scattered around you’ll find smooth vocal licks and subtle melodic phrases that pop out for a short time before getting lost in the mire once more. An epic slice of prog that will definitely grab the attention of many this summer.

Distant Lights intros with a somewhat tender kick drum that sits nicely alongside those captivating pads that ebb and flow. A smooth and steady rhythm is picked up by the crispy hats and tight percussion arrangement with a further boost by the deep rooted, driving bass line that dominates the track throughout. Sweeping strings and pads come complete with drifting melodies as synths threaten to burst out. On the break be prepared to totally lose yourself in the cosmic soundscape with that tough edged bass line as the backbone. A hell of a track that is most definitely going to be a main player in many sets no doubt.
