MATT HOLLIDAY – PIPE DREAM (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Matt Holiday returns to BP with the hugely impressive two tracker – Pipe Dream. A very much in-demand producer Matt always notches up the quality and this one is no exception. Last time out we had Light Year which proved very popular indeed with great support having shown up in many sets and DJ charts. Outside of Bonzai he still continues to impress the head honchos over at JOOF(as well as ourselves of course). On the DJ front he plays regularly around the UK where he brings his solid progressive grooves to the floors. Much more to come from this guy and well worth keeping an eye and an ear on.

Pipe Dream intros with a subtle kick and cool percussive arrangement as a dark bass teases us with its existence. The teasing abates and we are exposed to a superb deep and lush bass that moves slowly through the sound. Hints of melody pop up and build anticipation before a dark chant starts to form up. In a wonderful twist the dark chant is replaced by the most beautifully layered, soothing Ethnic voices that cascade through the sound to the backdrop of a deep, dark sinister progressive groove which comes to prominence on the break. As the voices subside we are taken back into full on prog mode with a little help from some cool synths that offer a rich tone to the sound. A fantastic slice and a definite must have track.

Navajo sets off with a nice punchy kick and a simple percussion arrangement that builds up into a solid drum section that carries a top notch tribal vibe. As the title suggests we are treated to some excellent Native American chants that resonate right throughout the sound and fit perfectly into the progressive nature of the track. A deep and beefy bassline shores up the low end providing a solid platform for the myriad of sounds to take hold. The break throws up a great mixture of sounds with subtle melodies at the centre before we crash back into the main track for the duration. Top notch stuff yet again from Matt, this one will be a welcome addition in any set.

KAY BARTON – RETURN 01 (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Kay Barton aka Kay Piranha debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Return 01 which comes with 2 brilliant remixes from Van Czar and Jesper Mauerhoff. Kay was born in Northern Germany in 1980. From just 14 years of age he started to realize he had a passion for electronic music and his ideas soon turned into tracks with his computer using basic DOS operating software. After moving to Southern Germany near Heidelberg in 1997, Kay was given the possibility to actually work on his career for the first time. Besides producing he started working as a DJ and ever since he plays dynamic techno, house and electro swing DJ sets. For more than 2 years he has been a part of La Nuit Boheme, the biggest event series for swing and electro swing music in Germany, as a resident DJ. Over the years Kay has played in many national and international locations, at events like Love Parade, Street Parade and G-Move as well as for several German broadcast transmitters and radio stations.

The Original Mix delivers a cool slice of tech house with a pumping groove that will keep the floors alight. Punchy kicks and crispy hats provide a tight rhythmic flow as a throbbing bassline holds the track together. A wonderfully tech fuelled sound dominates on the break as it pulsates sending the mind into overdrive and is joined by a synth stab that builds us back up into the main track for the duration. A proper, punchy slice of tech for the floors, a must have.

Van Czar delivers yet another blistering remix, something we have become accustomed to over the years. We usually see this guy over on Bonzai Basiks or Eyepatch Recordings, but he has made the jump over to BP in an unexpected twist to offer up his talents once more. A very hard working artist, Van juggles hosting Bonzai Basik Beats Spain with various gigs in and around Madrid as well as finding time to create a slew of remixes and original works for Bonzai and other labels. Here on the remix Van lets loose with a wonderful Tech House groove right from the off with his Club Remix. The intro throws up a tight drum arrangement with a chunky kick at the forefront. A tech rich stab gets the track into full swing as layers build with a cacophony of sounds straight outta the space age. Fantastic stabby synths resonate throughout the track to the backdrop of those tight drums and percussions. A definite must have track for sure, proper dancefloor fodder.

Dutch DJ and producer Jesper Mauerhoff returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duty and delivers a solid slice for the floors. We first got a taste of this guys talents back in the Summer of 2015 with his BP debut Eyes Wide Shut which was followed a few months later by Trip To Strip, as well as appearances on a few compilations in between. The remix notches up the tempo slightly as those punchy kicks make their mark against a superb synth chord and a gritty bassline. This one builds beautifully resulting in a full on tech groove with just a hint of progressive coming through on the arrangement. Tough offset basses are the perfect match for those splashy snares that cut through the sound brilliantly. A monster of a tune that will appeal to many.

RISE AND FALL – OPEN SYSTEM (ORIGINAL MIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

The Original Mix gets down to business with a charging kick drum that packs a lot of punch with a little help from a rising bass that starts to roll along with an energetic draw. Cool drum and percussion layers form up and settle the track into a nice flowing rhythm. Sweeping FX and dark synths join in and give the track a bit of meat in readiness for an epic ride. An in-your-face synth line opens up and locks you right into the groove as that bass hypnotizes. On the break we are set into a surreal world that takes on an intense vibe as those synths start to wind up once more. Another top notch slice from this guy which will definitely turn a few heads.

Rise And Fall – Open System (Original MiX), out this year on Bonzai Progressive, is charted by Beatport in the NYE Essentials – Progressive House chart!

VINCE AOUN – LILUM FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Lebanese DJ and producer Vince Aoun debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Lilium, which comes backed up with two superb remixes. Beirut based Vince has been around the scene since 2010 when he turned professional. It started with his radio show Catalepsy on MusicRadio.com which aired monthly but made the change to bi-weekly due to demand from listeners. In 2011 he started to put out his own works and quickly grabbed the attention of many top jocks including Paul Van Dyk, Judge Jules and Paul Oakenfold. His tracks have appeared on various labels but got a notable release on Vandit in May 2015. Great to have this fast rising talent on board and we hope to hear more soon.

His tracks have appeared on various labels but got a notable release on Vandit in May 2015. Great to have this fast rising talent on board and we hope to hear more soon.

The Original Mix intros with a smooth melodic vibe that is joined by subtle percussions and a cool arpeggiated riff before a solid kick drum makes its way into the sound. Big, brash snares hit the downbeat revealing an electro flourish that fits nicely into the groove. On the break we get a taste of some mighty fine synths that carry a strong melody with an old skool edge. Superb stuff and a top notch debut for this talented artist.

First up on the remix we have Belgian DJ and producer Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens with his superb Chilldown Remix. With a hugely impressive discography that spans over 10 years, this guy brings a wealth of outstanding talent to everything he touches and infuses tracks with his unique Manu Riga sound. His last outing for BP was on remix duty for Ruslan Vashkevich’s – Acid Pig alongside Youngen and just before that he churned out one of his best remixes to date on Youngen’s – The Long Way Home. This guy never lets up on the quality front and we always look forward to getting his latest work in the inbox. On the remix we are faced with a wonderfully thick kick rum that packs a nice punch and is joined by floating FX and a strong rising bass drone. Rich strings and pads sweep through and tease with their powerful draw. The track breaks to reveal a very cool melodic riff that leaves us wanting much more. In true Manu Riga style we get treated to some awesome ethnic sounds that raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Beautifully plucked strings and a captivating female vocal dominate the main break before we are led back to the main groove for the duration. Another fine display of deep progressive grooves from one of Europe’s top artists.

Blufeld is up next with his Dark Poison Remix and yet again he offers up a superb slice of progressive. Fresh off the back of his 4th studio album – A World Less Ordinary – David has already seen three of his tracks released as singles off the album, the latest track Out Of This Life grabbed a lot of attention and represents the perfect snapshot of this guys talent. Much more to come from this guy, soon we hope. Here the remix intros with a pacey vibe full of stuttering percussions and crispy hats that filter in nicely before we get hit with a solid kick drum and some stunning vocal sounds. A wonderful synth rides the groove perfectly and adds to the hypnotic nature of the track. Through the track we get a taste of a beautiful melodic structure that only fully reveals itself on the break where we find an uplifting feeling that carries us along for the ride effortlessly. A top notch remix that will definitely be a go to track for many.

We saw him make his debut at BP back in Summer 2015 with Eyes Wide Shut which gained a lot of support across the board. Great to see him back and no doubt we’ll be seeing more from this talented artist in the future.

Trip To Strip intros with a shuffling hat sequence on top of some cool percussive sounds before the solid kicks come crashing through. A superb bass line soon joins in and sets the track on fire with a rip roaring tech house groove. A tight drum arrangement keeps the rhythm flowing which will definitely keep the floors shakin all night. The track takes on a hypnotic vibe as that bass line, coupled with subtle synths powers on with its pumping groove. Superb stuff and a definite must have track.

Firework sets out with a solid rhythmic vibe as tight punchy kicks are joined by crispy hats and a cool percussion arrangement. The rhythm builds nicely and takes us up to a solid bass line that forms a progressive stranglehold that will not let go. A big room sound comes through in the bass as it twists and warps giving those booty’s something to shake it to. The track evolves beautifully with each key change, bringing with it some cool melodies that settle into a powerful progressive groove. An excellent slice of prog that is a must have in any set.

Next up we have Amateur which intros with a mesmerizing pad arrangement that soon breaks down to unleash a solid kickdrum that gets the groove moving nicely.

Dancing Desperados is one of those special Airwave breaks tracks that seem to capture the essence of sound beautifully, due in part to the way the track is constructed, with expert precision. We begin with a cinematic atmosphere full of deep drones and bright piano melodies alongside subtle drums. Huge swathes of synths bring the intro to a climax and we are left with a solid breaks arrangement that will definitely get floors moving to the groove. The lead sound takes on a fantastic Mediterranean vibe as plucky strings converge over those strong pads that send shivers down your spine with every key change. Heading towards the end of the track we get a scathing psy fuelled acid line thrown in that tops the groove off nicely. Top notch stuff that you’ll not want to miss.

ZATONSKY featuring ALEXANDRA PRIDE – MAD ARRAY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian producer Zatonsky returns to Bonzai Progressive, but this time he marks his full release debut with Mad Array, after he graced us with his remix on Alexey Lisin & Ange’s – Vesna back in June 2015. With a very impressive list of tracks across various labels we can see why this guy is in great demand. We sure hope to see more from this guy and his brand of deep and moody grooves. Featuring a brilliant vocal from Russian singer-songwriter Alexandra Pride, this one comes packed with remixes from Alexey Lisin and Dapa Deep.

The Original Mix intros with a smooth deep and moody chord alongside crispy hats and claps as an arpeggiated soft key comes through. The beautifully sultry vocal from Alexandra soon takes over and leads the track on to its deep grooving course. Big chunky kicks join giving the track a dance floor boost that will surely get bootys shakin all night long. The bass line combines perfectly with the vocal creating a melancholic vibe full of deep house flavours with a slither of progressive peeking out. Top notch stuff you’ll not want to miss.

Alexey Lisin steps in to return the favour on remix duty and delivers another stunning slice of his brand of deep house sounds. His last outing for BP – Try My Soul, also featured the superb vocals of Alexandra Pride and gained a lot of support across the board. We know we are getting only the very best quality music when this guy’s involved. The remix intros with a cool percussive arrangement that builds up slowly to form into a monster deep house groove complete with a rumbling bass line and some classy chords. Tight drums deliver a solid rhythmic feel to the track as that bass line holds up the lower end with ease. Cool synths litter the sound and fills the spaces left by the sparse vocals brilliantly. A superb slice of deepness yet again from this guy, a must have track for sure.

Dapa Deep – aka Lithuanian DJ and producer duo Darius Beinoravicius and Paulius Bukauskas – debut on BP with their remix of this fine slice of house music. Having met up in 2012 they started to produce and DJ together with each artist bringing different attributes to the table. Darius was melodic progressive kind of guy while Paulius was more into groovier house sounds. Both guys have graced the decks at top venues and played with top DJ’s over the years. Together, they have blended their own styles creating a unique sound that offers a fresh approach to music. Here the remix gets going with a pacey kick and shuffling hat combo that gets the rhythms moving nicely before a gritty bass synth sweeps across the sound. The track breaks to reveal a deep droning bass alongside those super sweet vocals and bright melodic plucks. With a deep house groove running through this one, we get a taste of progressive flavours in there also which makes for a very interesting sound, combing melody and melancholy to great effect. A wonderfully crafted slice that will grab a lot of attention no doubt.
