Portuguese producer Diego Alvez is back once again to BP with another fine slice of house for our pleasure. Diego has been remixing tunes as of late with Yaroslav Lenzyak’s “Panorama” being his latest. Here he gets down to business with “Sleepless Nights” which comes backed up with 3 superb remixes.
The Original Mix gets us on the house train with a full on funked up vibe, the track fades in from nothing with a classic arrangement of high hats which are soon followed by a brilliant chunky kick and a deep throbbing bass. Rich one shot vocals add great texture to the sound and they fit so well with tight synth riffs that dominate the track throughout. One to watch here, a lot of asses will have no choice but to shake with this!
That ever impressive duo, Mindgamers, are up to their usual tricks again as they step up to remix duties. The guys work their magic as they transform the original into a tougher edged groove with sharp stabs and a wicked bassline. The vocal is used well with a few added extras while an amazing percussion section keeps the rhythm flowing. On the break we get a taste of melody before slamming back into a relentless groove!
Another great duo with another great remix, Electric Bastards step up to induce a much more tech orientated feeling. Clipped kicks are married expertly with a full flowing rhythmic percussion arrangement. The vocals have been knocked down an octave or two giving a darker twist to the sound. Dark and hypnotic vibes perfect for those late night endeavours.
Popular remixer Thomas Genchev is here with a truly sublime take on the original, going deeper into the sound Thomas comes up with a wonderful array of almost distorted sounds. The kicks pound away while multiple FX go to work alongside some unexpected synth chords. A wall of sound ensues with a rhythmic posture that would sit well in any deeper set, stunning work!
Ukranian producer Yaroslav returns to Bonzai Progressive after his last instalment under his Pozitive moniker. The two track release “Panorama” comes backed up with two top class remixes. His last track “Colibri” was well received with support coming from all quarters.
The Original mix on “Panorama” serves up a tasty tech house offering with a cool and steady flowing rhythm and a nice deep bass on the lower end. Sharp, crisp hats keep the flow and some nifty acid type sounds give off a raw edge. The break gives us very well crafted pads which seem in total contrast with the sound but blend in perfectly, a nice round of prog to get the party started.
Popular remixer and producer Kevin Vega drops by for a remix and he delivers the goods yet again. Kicking off with a tougher more gritty feel he blends the sounds in his usual unique fashion. The percussions lead to a hypnotic state and the bass sits nicely on the arrangement. A bit of epicness comes through on the sound with the addition of huge soundscapes and very subtle melodies which create tension brilliantly. A top notch remix that would be a welcome addition to any deeper prog set.
Yaroslav’s next track “Tech Clips” brings out the techy side of prog, big chunky kicks are accompanied with some wonderfully arranged percussions and a bassline that reverberates throughout the sound. Tech fuelled synth stabs light up the groove while on the break a fantastic guitar type sound takes over, great stuff!
Purveyor of fine deep grooves Diego Alvez makes a welcome return to the Bonzai stable with his superb remix. Great intro with a shuffled groove that blends effortlessly into a steady four to the floor kick and hat combo. A short melodic arp sequence then dominates the sound and creates a cool progressive charged atmosphere. On the break Diego applies a very cool and strange metallic type synth that captivates and adds intensity, brilliant stuff from Diego!

Based in Brazil and making his Bonzai debut we have Luckoni with his awesome progressive track “Cold Planet” backed up with two remixes from two very talented artists.
The original track gets right into the prog house vibe with super cool kicks and percs and a stunning bassline giving a steady groove. On the break the synths and FX work well with a vocal adding flavour to the sound, a really very well crafted track and destined for many playlists.
Progressive house maestro Chantola steps up to remix duty with his very own wonderful unique style. Henrik takes the very essence of house and weaves it into a magical journey through sound, stand out percussions accompany a nice thud on the kick giving a cool steady rhythm. Minimal yet highly effective synths sweep through and keeps the track moving, top stuff again!
Diego Alvez is up next with his remix, Diego is a deep house guru and here he adds his midas touch and we are not disappointed. A very cool rework on the original with a real deep feel to it, superb stabs and chords add a lot of texture and the layers keep building and building. The break is where it’s at, big synth sound builds tension until the beats kick back in and the groove picks up again, just brilliant.
