ORLANDO VOORN – CLASSICS (BONZAI VINYL) – PRE-SALE AVAILABLE NOW!

As the world embraces vinyl once more we present to you our next adventures on wax with a special classic cut featuring four quality slices from the legendary Orlando Voorn. Orlando Voorn is revered as having brought the sounds of Amsterdam and Detroit together to create a unique flavour that still rings true today. Having won the Dutch DMC championship in 1986 he then turned his hand to producing. Since 1991 he has been churning out quality techno and he soon got noticed by the likes of Juan Atkins and Derrick May both of whom he has worked with extensively. A fan of many genres of music including Hip Hop, Electro, Drum n Bass, Techno etc…, he used a string of aliases – 31 at last count – with some gaining huge popularity. We’re delighted to bring you these fantastic tracks on vinyl which will no doubt take pride of place in many collections.

Limited Edition – The Light is a classic from 1992 and showcases Orlando’s producing and sampling skills to the max. Such a perfectly executed track with mesmerizing stabs and chords that take on many persona throughout the track building up a solid techno groove, simply magical.

Dope Computer appeared next to Flash in its original form, but here we’ve been graced with a remix from techno master Ken Ishii. Ken does as Ken does and he knocks it outta the park with this one. A sublime transformation from the original, acidified and discofied to the max.

Orlando Voorn and Juan Atkins reside under their Infiniti guise to give us Game One which is a perfect example of an energetic techno slice from 1994, this one made you move and got right up under your skin with its infectious groove. The remix from Steve Rachmad beefs up the sound and adds a deeper element with strings and a brilliantly executed stab sequence.

Format #1 gave us one of the most iconic techno tracks of the early nineties. Solid Sessions gets the remix treatment from Vince Watson. Scottish producer Vince’s pacey remix from 2011 delivers a sublime techno groove that simplified the melody and added perfectly balanced layers to beef up the groove.

VAN CZAR & DANTIEZ SAUNDERSON ft. ANN SAUNDERSON – THE FORCE (BONZAI VINYL) – PRE-SALE AVAILABLE NOW!

Our next vinyl release – The Force – comes courtesy of a fantastic collaboration of artists featuring Belgian DJ and producer Van Czar, DJ and producer Dantiez Saunderson and UK songstress Ann Saunderson. Van continues to lead the way in deep techno grooves and his tracks are always powerful tools in the mix for many jocks. After he joined Dantiez on their back to back set at this year’s (2015) Legacy Festival, they decided to get together in the studio and soon after they started working on this fine cut. Over the last few years Dantiez has taken after his legendary father, Kevin Saunderson, and released quality cuts on several labels including Kevin’s own KMS. The guys then decided to employ the soulful, gospel-esque vocals of Dantiez’s mother, Ann. Back in 1992 Ann featured as backing vocals on the anthemic Pennies From Heaven by Inner City which was headed up by her husband Kevin, and went on to record several high profile tracks over the years. To keep it all in the family we get treated to a wonderful remix by the legend himself, Mr Kevin Saunderson who led the way in the early Detroit house and techno scene and gave the world some of the most memorable tunes ever with Inner City and others.

The Original Mix delivers a wonderfully upbeat techno vibe with massive sprinklings of cool house flavours. Big chunky kicks pair up with sharp claps and shuffling open hats while the rhythm gets a boost from a top notch, tight drum section. A rumbling bassline rattles through the sound as the vocal starts to come into play. Warm chords fade through and we settle into the groove nicely before we get blasted with amazing retro style piano chords and a transformed vocal that will have you up and on that floor for sure.

Kevin Saunderson’s remix goes straight for the jugular with a monster kick on the intro that pounds out a solid techno sound. Perfectly placed vocals litter the groove and keep with the darker elements of the track. A deep, growling bass comes through and takes control of the groove and is soon joined by scathing gritty synths that rise up from the murky depths and take the track deeper into techno. A definite must have track for the purists that will get any floor moving.

Van Czar turns up the heat with a double remix. First up is the Playa Den Bossa Mix which serves up a real nice treat filled deep grooving techno vibes that’s come straight out of those late night Ibiza sessions leaving you frazzled and fully partied up. Punchy kicks and crispy sharp hats dish out a solid rhythmic flow to the track as tight drum patterns are let loose. Swirling synth chords stand out beautifully as subtle chord stabs hold back waiting to pounce while a slicing higher pitched single note cuts through. Top notch stuff you do not want to miss.

We go deeper on Van’s second remix, the Gladiator Cysxe Remix which delivers a more punchy sound with a darker techno edge that stands out brilliantly with its powerful grooves and superb synths that range from swirling warm chord to classic stabby hits. Along the way we are introduced to a much harsher synth that carries a brilliant techno vibe. Another sure fire floor filler that will appeal to many no doubt.

BONZAI WORX – VOLUME 5 (BONZAI VINYL)

As vinyl continues its steady rise we are pleased to present our next vinyl release, Bonzai Worx Volume 5. After the success of previous wax releases we trawled through our catalogue and came up with four of the hottest and grooviest cuts to get the etching treatment. Tracks from Van Czar featuring Sugar Love, Ecco, Sa.Du and Alfredo Mena as well as a remix from Manuel Palmitesta have all been selected this time for their diverse ranges. Expect deep, groovy, sultry, edgy, gritty and downright banging tracks on this limited pressing.

Sa.Du’s Imaging Your Self gives off deep and sultry sounds as a provocative female vocal swamps the vibe. Cool rhythms are formed out of a tight drum arrangement with punchy kicks and sharp hats. The bassline gels everything together brilliantly and on the break a female vocal comes to life with a huge diva-esque chorus, top notch production in effect.

Ecco’s Switch gets the remix treatment from Bonzai debutant Manuel Palmitesta. The track intros with a punchy kick and classic percussion set up with an in your face hypnotic siren styled synth note that dominates the sound. A very subtle yet effective bass sits in the rear and binds the track together beautifully. On the break a techy element filters into the sound as the percussions keep the groove flowing before we slam right back into full swing with an air raid siren for good measure. Top notch stuff.

Alfredo Mena gives us his track The Scrawl with its full on techno vibes. A deep throbbing sub bass is joined by cool clipped kicks and a superb percussion line followed up with crispy clear hats. Cool vocal samples give the track a darker feel and makes this a strong favourite for the darker rooms. A big feature in the track is the expertly arranged percussion section, tight and to the point as various rhythms filter through alongside a more energetic secondary bass and a continuous metallic perc hit.

Van Czar joins forces with Sugar Love on Love Trip which intros with a tough bass sound and an enticing sultry vocal. The track settles into a full on Techno groove with punchy kicks and super crisp hats alongside that gritty edged bass. The vocals continue to lull you into their lustful grasp and adds a real dynamic contrast to the sound. A real powerful Techno slice yet again from Van and no doubt this one will see a lot of playtime.
