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.

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.

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.
