STAN KOLEV – BREATHLESS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Based out of Miami Beach, Florida, Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Breathless which features two stunning remixes from Manu Riga and Rise and Fall. This guy has been churning out quality vibes for over 10 years and in that time he has turned his hand to many styles and genres. He focuses mainly on progressive house but you will find he can dish out top notch deep house, house and tech house with the same dedication and resulting quality. A very much revered artist by his peers, Stan inspires many to reach his standard. His back catalogue is mind blowing and he has appeared on many top rated labels over the years. Great to have him on board at BP and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.

Stan’s Original Mix delivers a solid progressive vibe that we’ve come to expect from this talented artist. This time around he dishes out an oldskool vibe that will definitely grab the attention of many. Nice punchy kicks and shuffling hats lead the way as a probing bassline weaves in and out. Stabby synth notes fade up only to dissolve leaving us wanting more. The drums section remains tight with a complex percussion arrangement sending out a steady rhythmic flow. Another fine slice from this guy that is not to be missed.

Prolific Belgian artist Manu Riga is up first on remix duty delivering a full on dancefloor filler. After many years of mastering his own unique sounds, Manu Riga has taken a slight change of direction, exploring new sounds and ideas to get only the best music to the floors and beyond. We’ve come accustomed to his sound and while this one is new we can still find the Manu Riga magic within. Busy as ever, Adriaan is working on new material and remains a much sought after remixer. He is also busy with his Escape and Ethno Science radioshows. The remix opens with a very cool rhythmic vibe that intensifies as the track builds. Shuffling hats, chunky kicks and infectious percussion patterns will get the feet to the floors no doubt. Wonderfully warm basses wash over the track, inviting you in, while in the background diva-esque vocals ring out. On the break the track whittles down to a pulsing bass and swirling pads before the melody begins to rise once more taking us back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff once again that will not disappoint.

Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov aka Rise and Fall returns to Bonzai Progressive with his outstanding remix. This year (2016) has shaped up to be an important one for this guy, he’s delivered the goods consistently which is why he is very much in demand for remix duties. His reputation as a quality artist continues to grow and we’ve no doubt that this one will be grabbing a lot of attention. The remix opens with a nice solid kick drum which is joined soon after by crispy hi hats and a seriously low end bassline that bubble up from the depths. Up to some very cool female vocals add wonderful texture to the sound before the track hits the first break. Here the track opens up with the bass widening out and some fantastic stabbing synths coming through which takes us back into full swing. The synths combine beautifully with the groove and we find ourselves totally locked on. A definite must have track, no doubt.

PLATUNOFF – PRIMAVERA (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian DJ and producer Igor Platunoff returns with Primavera and this time he is flying solo after a successful collaboration with Blufeld on their superb cut Tiefe Gedanken back in May 2016. Tiefe Gedanken was also Igor’s full Bonzai debut as he’d previously been contributing top notch remixes and appearing on various compilations. No doubt we’ll be seeing more from this guy in the future. We’ve enlisted the talents of three top notch artists who bring in their own unique flavour to the track. Nico Parisi, Koschk and Jamie Baggotts join Platunoff on this progressively charged pack with some fantastic results.

First up though we have the Original Mix which delivers a wonderfully smooth progressive flowing sound. Nice chunky kick drums are offset by crispy hi hats that cut through the low frequencies with ease. A deep bassline wraps itself around the track bringing a deep warmth as subtle melodics dominate the mid range. Throughout the track mesmerizing pads keep us firmly locked on. Brilliant stuff.

Nico Parisi is up first on the remix and he takes the core melody from the original and transforms it into a spellbinding hypnotic endeavour that digs deep into your soul. Subtle acid lines lie in wait, teasing as the track goes deeper. The break dishes out a surreal sequence full of wonderful plucked strings that create cool textures. A real nice slice of deep prog that is not to be missed. Köschk is up next with his remix and he certainly beefs up the sound with a fantastic punchy kick drum and rhythmic percussion arrangement. Stabby bass synths stand out as the layers are built and are contrasted against some superb vocal samples. The track is a much more raw offering than the original and on the break this becomes more evident as those plucks dish out an organic flavour backed with harsher synths. A dancefloor destroyer for sure and a definite must have. Jamie Baggotts finishes up this pack with a sublime cut that just oozes pure progressive bliss from the outset. A solid punchy kick drum leads the way and is backed with rhythmic hi hats and an ever increasing percussion section. Surreal space age pads create a very cool atmosphere as the bassline chugs through the sound. The track toughens up as it evolves with the slightest hint of melody creeping through. A brilliant display once again from Jamie that will grab a lot of attention.

This guy just keeps getting better and better, always one to watch.

The Original Mix is beautifully crafted insight into the progressive world that leaves you wanting more and more. A smooth steady flowing rhythmic drum arrangement keeps the track moving as a deep bass meanders through the low end shoring up the groove. Soft melodies creep in and sit perfectly with an array of quality FX and swirling pads. The break whittles down to just pads and FX alongside a cool spoken vocal before slamming right back into full on mode for the duration. Another fantastic slice from Ruslan that is not to be missed.

Jonny Calypso is up first on remix duties and it’s been a while since we last saw Jonny round these parts. His last outing was on Bonzai & Friends Remixes and since then he has shown up on our Bonzai Basik Beats Radioshow where he offered up a sublime mix. Here he takes us into the tech house world with his effort. Punchy kick drums lead the way as shuffling percussions form up delivering a solid and steady rhythm that is sure to get the feet on the floors. A deep bassline rumbles through the sound as subtle melodies begin to peek through the lower frequencies. This one just build and builds into a fantastic full on stomper, a definite must have track for those late night sessions.

Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez aka Experimental Feelings returns for remix duty after his very well received Paradise Sound (Green Martian) and delivers another one of his super fine progressive house cuts that will no doubt grab a lot of attention. A very much respected and reliable source of quality material, Toni continues to produce the goods on a regular basis with not only his own works but with lots of top notch remixes, just like this one. Here he takes us deep, he brings the spoken vocal from the original to the fore giving the track a wonderful character. Chunky kick drums and bright crispy hats stand out and lay the foundation for a superb raw sounding bassline that carries a sharp edge to toughen things up a bit. Soft cascading melodies are picked up and bring a cool contrasting texture to the groove. Excellent stuff once more and the perfect tool for any set.

Since then his tracks have went on to appear on various compilations. With an ever increasing support base we’ve no doubt we’ll be seeing much more from him in the future.

Mutate is a straight up melodic progressive slice that delves deep into the imagination with its sublime sequences and hypnotic melodies. A solid beautifully tweaked bassline drives the groove while rhythmic drums keep the dancing feet shuffling. Throughout the track simplistic patterns created with expert precision produce maximum effect on the senses, taking your mind higher as the groove deepens. A simply fantastic cut that is not to be missed.

Oblivion takes us deep into the progressive sound with a tight, beautifully constructed track. Chunky kick drums lead the way as a meandering bassline draws us in with its hypnotic lull. Mesmeric vocals laced with FX provide some interesting textures and contrast well against the much brighter melodic elements. The break throws up a harsher synth sequence that climaxes into a more driving progressive groover. Brilliant stuff and a must have track in your arsenal for sure.

Delighted to see him back once more and no doubt we’ll be seeing even more in the future.

A Hopeful Dawn intros with a beautifully surreal sequence of sounds comprised of swirling pads, distant voices and a chunky break beat pattern. The breaks continue with dominance as a deep rooted growling bassline enters the fray. Cool melodic arps are introduced to add a wonderfully textured layer. Intricate patterns form up in the drum section creating a rhythmic flow to the track as heavenly vocals fill out the background. A fantastic sound with uplifting qualities that will most definitely appeal to many.

From Dust & Darkness delivers an epic progressive breaks trip that will both captivate and liberate. A solid breaks section provides the backbone of the track alongside cool shuffling percussions that dish out a nice flowing rhythmic vibe. Space age synths and cascading arps blend effortlessly together to create some memorable melodies that are capped off with the most beautiful choir-like vocal. This one is a monster and will no doubt find its way into many sets, a must have.

Matan’s Original Mix delivers a seamless and smooth mix of progressive and tech house fusions that blend into a solid groover that will quickly become a firm favourite to many. Steady flowing rhythmic beats lead the way here but the magic comes from the beautifully constructed synths and that plucked bassline with its deep sub vibe and accompanying gritty sibling.

Köschk is first up on remix duties and comes fresh off the back of his full debut Dirwan which gained a great deal of support and featured heavily on top download portals and charts alike.

Bonzai Progressive regular Dennis Franchi is up next with his remix and he delivers a wonderfully executed blend of progressive house and techno that will most definitely delight the floors.

Gritty basses bubble up from below and are joined by some very cool voices that add that progressive touch to the techno fuelled beats. A truly dynamic experience with minimal sounds making a huge impact, this one is not to be missed.
