After a hugely successful return to Bonzai Progressive with Mitochondria in 2016, we welcome Cortex Thrill back in 2017 with the superb Utopia which features two top notch remixes from Thorin and Fabian Jakopetz. Regarded with high esteem in the music production world Cortex Thrill’s style and sound helped shape an entire scene back in the early nineties. Throughout the years the Cortex Thrill sound has moved effortlessly with the times, right up to today it brings a unique dynamic that reverberates beautifully, slotting into progressive sets with ease. The Cortex Thrill studio remains a hub of activity with lots of work being done not only for Bonzai but for Soul Access and for the Croatian electronic music scene in general. Lots more to come out of Croatia so stay tuned for more.
The wait is finally over, Cortex Thrill aka Ivo T. Montina returns to his Bonzai home, after 20 years on hiatus, with the retro laced upfront progressive house cut Mitochondria. Ivo launched his Cortex Thrill project in 1993 on Loving Ed Records, but he was soon picked up by the expanding Bonzai Records in 1994 with his debut – Intro. A string of classic hard trance, trance and techno EP’s (Duction, Infiltration and Euphoria) followed – along with a quality remix for Jones & Stephenson’s First Rebirth – and it was during this time that he was joined by studio partner Sven Gleda. In 1995 the guys took a break and returned in 2001 with releases on various labels including the album The First Contact Death Star on Croatian label Dancing Bear. As Sven pursues other projects, Ivo took the decision to revamp Cortex Thrill and the results are simply stunning. Even though it’s been 20 years since his last Bonzai release, he is in tune with the quality sound the label offers today. As if his return isn’t good news enough, Ivo is committed to delivering more of his unique sound in future release, something we very much look forward to. For now though we invite you to Mitochondria and its two superb remixes from Fabian Jakopetz and RBA.
Another week, another show! Here is Fabian Jakopetz with a excellent 60-min mix
