Superb Bonzai Progressive debut for the very talented Dee Brown with Juanto backed up with a couple of brilliant remixes.
Belfast born producer and DJ, Dee got the EDM bug at young age, he started to collect seven inch vinyls from the likes of 2 Unlimited and Eiffel 65. Soon after he got into Hardstyle and due to its infectious nature Dee found himself wanting to become a DJ. At 14 he got his first set of Soundlabs and then eventually a set of the iconic Technics. Lots of clubbing followed and Dee was able to experience many other genres in EDM and then he found House music. It was Dee’s love for House that he then decided to go into production and he equipped himself with Ableton Live and taught himself all the ins and outs of this software. Now Dee is ready to unleash his sound to the world and after a well received remix of Project KF – Hold Me, I’m Burning on Bonzai Basiks we are treated to something special in Juanto.
The original mix has a cool prog tech vibe with the opening focusing on light percussion and a vox sample, big swirling FX lead into a powerful kick and bass combo, building on to include some nice housey stabs. On the break is a very familiar vocal sample for the oldskool listeners with lots of brilliantly crafted sweeps and synth. An overall consistent grooving track destined for a lot boxes.
Portuguese producer and remixer Diego Alvez provides the first remix and he does an awesome job. Focusing more on the House side of the tracks Diego adds in a suave and sophisticated rhythm, pure house vibe with crisp hats, beautiful synth work and a bouncing bass with great FX on the vocal.
Turning up the heat is prog master Kintar with his remix. Big sound created with beefed up basses, killer kicks and super percussion, again the vocal is used to great effect and a very simple yet effective melody ties this whole track up nicely.
Another great release for Bonzai Progressive and a lot of DJ’s will pick this up for sure.

From the young age he has been inspired by different musical cultures: the Middle Eastern, Western European and European. Being addicted to genres like: House, Techno, Breaks and Trance he decided to write his own music.
In 1998 he made his first track. Between the years 1998-2003 he is working under different aliases in different genres, mostly in Trance and PsyChill.
In 2004 he is starting to study Sound Engineering at Yoav Gera Sound School. After finishing of sound studies in 2006, he tries himself in the sound industry as: Boom Man, Post Production, PA and Junior Soundman.
After being enough in the music industry, he is starting to write Techno and Minimal Techno. The inspiration to Techno music came from underground movements in Tel Aviv city at those days. The genre switch provides him great exposure and his promo was charted in Top 10 side by side with promos by Anthony Papa, Umek, Davis & May…
In 2008, together with his friend Alex, he is establishing AK Tek Records, for Techno and Progressive House music. The label got a huge support after making various gigs and events. Being inspired by AK Tek Records music, he came back for roots and began to write Tech House music. For few years he was signed by different labels, but recently he is releasing music mostly on his own label and on Bonzai.

At the launch the style on this label was a bit more tuff to describe in a few words. You’ll just have to grab some releases and judge them for yourself. We like to call it the more intelligent progressive approach with the first release with some tech, house and electro influences and yet playable for the more advanced deejays out there. However recently (summer 2010) we decided to go full focus on Techno and Tech-House.
