CHRISTOPHER HERMANN – EMERALD QUEEN FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Christopher Hermann returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Emerald Queen which features the original and a top notch remix from Robert R Hardy. It’s been just over a year since we last saw Christopher when he debuted with the very well received Point G. He did show up on various compilations in the meantime though. Great to see him back and we hope to hear more from him in the coming months.

PHI PHI – BREAKING DANGER (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Phi Phi is back and once again he delivers a solid slice of progressive, this time in the form of the outstanding – Breaking Danger. This guy has been churning out quality vibes since the mid 80’s with projects like Dobel You, Honey C, The Gaps, Extreme Trax and the famous Quadran, most of which he produced alongside the late great Philippe Van Mullem. Over these years Phi Phi’s attention was mainly on progressive and trance, and he still leans in that direction to this day. He has had countless residencies and club and festival appearances and is regarded with legendary status amongst his peers.

Breaking Danger is a beautifully executed progressive cut filled with driving energetic grooves over a tight drum arrangement that will keep floors pumping. Hypnotic synths and a chugging bassline keep this one in top gear for the duration as punchy kicks and crispy hats alongside intricate percussion patterns get the rhythm flowing. The sound will captivate and invigorate your senses. The break throws up a fantastic monologue from one of the most iconic TV shows of the last decade. Heisenberg’s speech fits perfectly into the deep progressive nature of the track and will definitely prove to be a big draw. Top notch stuff that you will not want to miss.

CHRISTOPHER HERMANN – EMERALD QUEEN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Christopher Hermann returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Emerald Queen which features the original and a top notch remix from Robert R Hardy. It’s been just over a year since we last saw Christopher when he debuted with the very well received Point G. He did show up on various compilations in the meantime though. Great to see him back and we hope to hear more from him in the coming months.

The Original Mix intros with a nice well rounded punchy kick drum and some subtle percussions that build up slowly into a cool shuffling rhythm. A monstrous, deep droning bass comes through and dominates the sound as soft synth pads and chords form up. A mystical vibe descends upon the sound alongside some beautifully crafted vocals that add a rich flavour to the groove. The break is a cacophony of strings and pads that blend effortlessly creating a wonderfully textured sequence. A truly deep and mesmerizing trek into prog that is not to be missed.

Having provided quality cuts for our Afterhour Trax compilations, Hungarian DJ and producer Reis Robert aka Robert R. Hardy and D.M.P shows up on remix duty and gives us a taste of his own progressive sound. Over the last couple of years this guy has brought some quality vibes to various labels including Mistique Music, Suffused Music and Clinique Recordings to name just a few and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more from this talented artist. The remix sets off with a cool upbeat kinda vibe a chunky kicks are met with a tight drum arrangement that dishes out a tribal rhythm to get the dancing feet moving towards the floor. A deep, lush bassline comes through as sweeping synths float across the sound and we find ourselves getting locked on for the ride. On the break we get treated to a beautifully surreal sequence before we are slammed back into full on mode. One to watch here, a definite must for any prog set.

ALEXEY LISIN featuring AVES VOLARE – FUNNY DAY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Alexey Lisin serves up his next tasty treat on BP with Funny Day featuring stunning vocals from Aves Volare. This will be Alexey’s 4th Bonzai Progressive release working with different vocalists and judging by the previous cuts we know we’re in for some top quality sounds indeed.

The Original Mix delivers a real solid slice of progressive house with a superb 80’s vibe rocking right throughout the sound, from the synths to the bassline and a swinging drum section, this one will definitely fill the floors. The vocal stands out beautifully and is the main component that gives the track that wonderful new romantic groove. Top notch as always and a definite must have track.

Australia’s Audio Noir is back with Another Audio Noir Safari and shows us once more his top notch remix skills in action. His last outing was back in December 2015 with a remix pack of his track Your Love which featured Lokka Vox on vocals. The remix sets off with a cool percussion driven arrangement with warm synths bringing up the rear as a droning bass fades in. We get a taste of the wonderful new romantic styled vocals as the layers build. Cool pitching synths come through and take the track to the next level before we head into the break where an awesome electric guitar riff takes over and solidifying the prog groove that oozes out of the sound. A floorfiller for sure here, not to be missed.

Dennis Franchi shows up next on remix duties and delivers a superb slice for the floors. We last caught a glimpse of Dennis under his House Lovin Criminals guise for a remix on Matan Caspi & Roy Lebens’ Klubnichka back in September 2015. The remix takes us on a cool tech house ride filled with tight beats and a fantastic vocal. Warm chords are met with a bright rhythmic workout dished out by crispy hats and punchy kick drums. The bassline delivers a smooth funky groove that provides the perfect backdrop for the tech fuelled sound. A proper slice of house music for the floors.

Hungarian producer Paul Kardos serves up his Breathing Mix and gives us a superb deep and grooving progressive workout. Last time out Paul was on remix duty for Mendexx’s Deceptive Minds in November 2015. On the remix Paul takes us deeper into a progressive deep house hybrid sound that hypnotizes and mesmerizes. Big chunky kicks are joined by cool crispy shuffling hats and claps to provide a steady flowing rhythm. A deep meandering bassline walks across the groove effortlessly and draws you in with its warm glow. Subtle chords fill out the background as those cool vocals keep the groove deep. A must have track that will keep those late night sessions rocking.

His tracks have gained support from the likes of Paul Van Dyk and Solarstone among others. He already boasts an impressive release count on labels such as Philosophy Recordings, Starblocks Music and Black Hole Recordings to name just a few. Great to have this guy on board at BP with his brand of progressive that will appeal to many no doubt.

No Need To Pretend goes straight into a full on rip roaring groove right from the off. Nice punchy kicks are joined by a tight percussion arrangement that delivers a solid rhythmic flow to the sound. A pulsating bassline drives the track alongside some retro styled chord stabs and takes us up to the break where we are met with sharp plucks and a deep droning bass. With a hint of psy creeping in to the sound the break climaxes and we are thrust back into the melodic techno workout. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Once Upon A Time dishes out a tight progressive groove as punchy kicks and crispy hats join forces alongside a fantastic pitching bassline that is the main driving force on the track. Tight percussions do a fine job and keep the rhythm flowing as cool FX go off in the background. On the break we are treated to some real nice plucky melodies that lock us in for the ride before we get slammed back into the main track for the duration. A definite must have track on this fine debut from Sam.

MATAN CASPI – CELEBRIUM (RISE AND FALL REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

Rise and Fall is up next on the remix and once more we are blown away by the talent on offer from this guy. He has given us some fine progressive cuts over the years and he never fails to deliver. His last outing Open System proved popular among many which is a testament to his contribution to the scene. The remix intros with a cool muted kick and a great warping bass alongside an array of surreal FX and sounds. A subtle melodic arp fades through and stands out in contrast to the deeper sounds around. The drums layer up nicely with a cool rhythmic vibe that will transform easily to the floors. A solid progressive groove ensues with sweeping synths and risers taking us to the break where we enter a deeper abyss before getting thrust back into the main groove for the duration. Another fine example from Rise and Fall, not to be missed.

Matan Caspi – Celebrium (Rise And Fall Remix), out this week on Bonzai Progressive, is charted by Beatport in this week’s Must Hear Progressive House chart!

LONG GARDEN AVENUE – LOVELIGHT EP FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Long Garden Avenue is the brainchild of Adriaan Baussens aka Belgian musician, composer, DJ and producer Manu Riga. LGA first came into existence back in 2005 when Adriaan was transitioning between house and progressive.

LONG GARDEN AVENUE – LOVELIGHT EP (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Long Garden Avenue is the brainchild of Adriaan Baussens aka Belgian musician, composer, DJ and producer Manu Riga. LGA first came into existence back in 2005 when Adriaan was transitioning between house and progressive. His intention was and still is, to keep his music open to movement between genres and LGA is his vehicle into a more deep house sound. This full release debut entitled Lovelight EP is a collaboration between Adriaan, his good friend Matt Holliday and the stunning vocalist Sam Zeito. This one is a change of direction for Matt as he normally resides over epic progressive cuts, much like Manu.

Long Garden Avenue has a story to tell and you can check out our website for an in-depth write up on the man behind the music.

Lovelight intros with nice and smooth laidback groovy kinda vibe before a throaty vocal introduces a tight drum arrangement complete with punchy kicks and a smooth rhythmic percussion. This one has so many standout elements, from the mesmerizing bassline to the eclectic guitar licks and a plethora of instruments that are layered perfectly to deliver a solid workout. The vocal is the big hitter here though, a smooth rendition with a cool narrative that leads up to an uplifting chorus with an instantly catchy theme. If that wasn’t enough we are treated to some groovy leads that will keep the booty’s shakin all night long. An absolute beauty of a track here and one that you will not want to miss, it’s gonna be big.

Everywhere sets out with a deep grooving vibe as chunky kicks are joined by warm, deep pads and a subtle percussion arrangement. A deep bassline takes over the sound as the equally deep vocal comes through alongside jazzy one shots. Shuffling hats, sharp claps and layered drums bring in a rhythmic element as the groove deepens with melancholic piano chords and contrasting brighter notes. The break reveals a cool lead that accompanies the vocal beautifully before we head back into the main track for the duration. A superb piece filled with many elements that blend together nicely, a must have for sure.
