JAKHIRA – BE AS ONE FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Jakhira is back with Be As One and what a treat it is. He made us wait a while since his last outing – Princess EP, back in November 2013 but it was well worth it. He did throw in a couple of remixes for Mindgamers and Wild Guess as well as various appearances on Bonzai compilations which were very well received indeed. Great to see this guy back and hope to see more in the future. Be As One comes backed up with two top notch remixes.

JAKHIRA – BE AS ONE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Jakhira is back with Be As One and what a treat it is. He made us wait a while since his last outing – Princess EP, back in November 2013 but it was well worth it. He did throw in a couple of remixes for Mindgamers and Wild Guess as well as various appearances on Bonzai compilations which were very well received indeed. Great to see this guy back and hope to see more in the future. Be As One comes backed up with two top notch remixes.

The Original Mix sets off with a smooth vibe as soft keys are met with a steady hat which is joined by a nice chunky kick soon after. A warm progressive groove is the order of the day here and is further enhanced by excellent vocals that shine through on the break. A collection of fine sounds including trumpets and guitars make up this wonderful arrangement that fast becomes infectious. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Manu Riga is first up to the remix desk with his Manu Riga In Orbit Remix. It’s a very exciting time for Manu aka Adriaan Baussens and his many fans, he is currently working on a new artist album (one track is already completed and it is tasty) which will hopefully be here in 2016, but he has also been busy in the studio with fresh new cuts such as his latest creation – The Fallen EP. Collaborations are still something he is pursuing, working with the likes of Alex Vidal and Matt Holliday are proving popular and a lot of his own works have included some of the finest vocalists around. His tracks continue to inspire and have been getting big plays from the likes of Paul Oakenfold among others. Check out Manu’s new website manu-riga.com to find more on his impressive discography and info on his Escape and Ethnoscience radio shows. The remix intros with a punchy kick and is backed up with a superb rolling bassline that drives the track beautifully. Surreal, sweeping strings float across the sound as cool synth chord stabs are introduced. The track breaks to reveal a nice melodic sequence that marries perfectly with that probing bassline. The vocals are used beautifully and add lots of character to the sound which is a cool blend of deep progressive grooves. In true Manu style we are treated to a tight drum arrangement that will set this solid workout as a firm favourite.

Config aka Wouter Vermeire is up next with his Twisted Reality Remix and delivers a knockout deep grooving cut. Wouter cut his teeth listening to trance as a kid, he soon started to DJ and was engrossed with the euphoria the music offered. He moved over to a more progressive sound and even ventures into house and techno on occasion. He runs two monthly radioshows and has seen his own music released on various labels over the years. Config makes up one third of producer and DJ trio Wild Guess, they debuted back in February 2014 with Nebulae and followed that with Trysal 35. Several remixes followed on Green Martian and Bonzai Progressive and have become a consistent force when it comes to delivering quality. The remix intro with a cool deep house vibe as scattered chords are joined by a subtle hat arrangement before a classic kick breaks out. A deep and probing bassline follows as we are teased with more fantastic chords and sweet melodic riffs. On the break the vocals get a showing and transform the track beautifully. Super smooth and uplifting sounds that will not disappoint.

WILD GUESS – TRYSAL 35 (GREEN MARTIAN)

Belgium based DJ’s J.E.O.F., Config and P.O.W. aka Wild Guess return to Green Martian with their latest creation, Trysal 35 which comes backed up with two superb remixes. The guys debuted last year with Nebulae which charted very well among many. After that they got a great response with their remix on Digital Department featuring Cara Leigh’s You Put A Spell and Mendexx’s Life Begins. So much more to come from this talented trio, well worth keeping tabs on for the future.

The Original Mix sets off with a nice punchy kick as a stabby synth fades in and soon dominates the sound. The track breaks to reveal a neatly woven melodic flavour and a superb deep droning bass that ebbs and flows with the help of some cool filtering. The synths soon take on their own melodies and captivate the mind as they wind their way through the groove. Snappy percussions come to the fore and contrast perfectly with the deeper elements and provide a steady rhythm in the process. On the break the sound intensifies with big synth pads that give a euphoric edge as the lead comes in while that droning bass keeps everything grounded beautifully. Top notch progressive house that will definitely be a peak time destroyer.

Yuriy From Russia has been a busy guy recently and he continues that trait with a fine remix here. At the start of 2015 he remixed Audio Noir’s Life to much praise. He also appeared on various compilations as well as multiple releases and remixes on various labels. Much more to come from this talented guy so stay tuned. On the remix he gives a nod to the original putting his own unique slant on the sound. A super solid groove is formed from the tight drums and attention to detail on the melodies. Rising arps and sweeping pads bring out a real nice melodic flow while a deep probing bass ensures the groove remains on point. Yuriy lays focus on the lead that etches itself into your brain with its smooth, tender vibes and catchy rhythm. A must have track in your box that will still be around for the Summer no doubt.

Jakhira is up next with his Guess Again Remix and yet again he delivers the goods in style. His last outing was back in August 2014 with a remix on Mindgamers’ You Know Why which was very well received indeed. Since then he has shown up on various compilations as well as appearances on Bonzai Basik Beats radio show. On the remix he delivers a truly epic slice of progressive goodness. The intro boasts Dave Clarke-esque chord stabs alongside a well rounded kick with tight drums and percussions that spew out a solid rhythm. A deep and probing bass keeps the groove on course as melodies start to form up. On the break those melodies come into full glory as the lead dominates the sound to the backdrop of a deep bass drone before we are led back into the main track. Top class stuff from Jack you will not want to miss.

MINDGAMERS – YOU KNOW WHY (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Tallinn’s finest are back with their long awaited follow up to The Crown with You Know Why on Bonzai Progressive. November 2013 was their last full release but they have been very busy indeed with remix duties for Phi Phi & Airwave, Ecco, Cordoba and Matan Caspi. The original gets a rework from four of Bonzai’s top remixers to satisfy our progressive addictions.

The Original Mix intros with a cool round of percussions before a nice punchy kick joins the fun as vocal samples come through. A deep and laidback bass provides the perfect platform for the progressive house vibes to flourish here and are matched beautifully with a flowing rhythmic percussion section. Cool housey stabs come through as a more progressive inspired synth makes the rounds. The break reveals a bright melodic string that adds lush tones to the vibe. Top notch effort yet again from Zas and Sanze.

Top Bonzai artist Nico Parisi is up first to remix and what a fine job he does yet again. Nico as usual remains a very busy guy in the studio and on the road gigging. His latest remix for Matan Caspi has been performing very well indeed and his newest track Napoli By Night will no doubt follow suit. Here Nico turns up the progressive dial a few notches with a nice deep grooving track. The original elements are well represented with the bass walking along beautifully as big chunky kicks dominate the sound. The vocal samples come through perfectly and add to the darker tones. On the break we see wonderful contrasts as the strings pitch above the deeper vibe resulting in a must have cut for those late night sessions.

Crocy is next up for his remix and again we see top quality delivery for a top quality artist. Recently we were treated to his own latest cut, a reworking of Recht, as well as remixes for Nico Parisi and Steve Sai. The remix here intros with a nice and bright crispy hat and sharp clap combi with vocal samples coming in. The punchy kicks give way to a brilliantly crafted bassline that filters into a superb grooving house vibe as the synths dish out their subtle melodies. A super tight arrangement with a huge dancefloor appeal that will no doubt feature among many.

Jakhira delivers a top notch remix as you’d expect with his trademark house elements shining through beautifully. Right from the off you know you’re in for a good time as crispy percussions form up a solid rhythmic base. Well rounded, punchy kicks are joined by a groovy chord riff that will get the dancing feet moving easily. A cool plucky bassline keeps the groove flowing brilliantly as the layers continue to build with the addition of classy synth stabs. The break unleashes a fantastic deep bass pad as the synths continue their journey with the addition of some funky keys to shake things up a bit. Superb stuff from this Jakhira as always and no doubt this will feature heavily in many sets.

Rion Oidua rounds off this stunning remix pack with his own stunning cut. Since October 2013 Rion has featured on many remix rosters across various labels within the Bonzai realm, and each time he always surpasses expectations with quality work. This time around we see his progressive traits shine through as the track intros with a classic kick and hat combi that will always get feet moving. A deep and moody synth is joined by cool vocal samples and leads us up to a fantastic stand out plucked bass that just sits perfectly in the track. Cool house vibes come off the synths and pad chords as a smooth string melody eases in. The break lets loose with big stabby synth chords that take the track on a bit of an oldskool tangent with stunning results before settling back into this solid progressive house groove. A definite must have.

NICO PARISI – NAPOLI BY NIGHT (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Fresh off the back of his last outing Perla with Gai Barone, Nico is back with the wonderful Napoli By Night and comes backed up with three superb remixes. Nico has consistently proven his skills in the studio as his productions continue to deliver that WOW factor. Support is always near when he release and features on top download sites and charts remain constant. Currently enjoying a thriving festival season, Nico appeared for a double stint at Tomorrowland’s double weekender at the Bonzai Stage. Watch this space as much more works are in the pipeline.

The Original Mix intros with a nicely rounded kick and hat classic combi as a stuttering synth fades through with the filters opening teasingly. The track bursts into life with the introduction of a stunning bassline that provides a solid bedrock for this fantastic deep progressive mover. Epic pads sweep across the sound beautifully and pulse with the beat taking us up to the break. Solid progressives grooves from Nico that will no doubt grab a lot of attention.

Chris Harris debuts on Bonzai with his superb remix. Chris has been around the scene for many years having started out as a bass player in 1992. He turned to DJing and played all over the UK with much success. After a short hiatus he returned to the scene and threw himself into production focusing on his love of Progressive Trance, with his first release coming in February 2014 with Lost In The East on Transportal Digital. With a new track of his own on the way we are delighted to have Chris on board. Here he sets the tone for a sublime progressive journey as the track intros with a solid driving beat comprising chunky kicks and a smooth pulsating bassline. Rhythmic percussions are applied beautifully as rising synths take us through the layers. Synth pads burst into life and send us on a euphoric ride as the darker beats keep the groove flowing. Melodies weave in and out of the sound creating a refreshing seam on this outstanding cut, a must have for sure.

Next up we have Jakhira’s Rework which testifies the skills on offer from this hugely talented artist. A very popular choice at Bonzai as proven with his last effort on Crocy’s Recht, Jakhira certainly knows how to get the progressive juices flowing. A nice a smooth intro with percussions leading the way as a deep house chord stabs through. Chunky kicks punch in and the groovy chords begin to weave their magic releasing a purely deep house vibe. The bassline provides the proggy edge to the sound as it cuts a lush swathe through the groove with a little help from beautiful rich pads. The break lets loose with bright melodic sequences to the backdrop of a droning bass as the track builds back up and continuing on its wonderful journey, top notch.

Up next we have Lonely Sun & Nicolas Agudelo on remix duty. The guys recently remixed Alex Vidal – Solar Citadel with much praise coming from many quarters. They are relative newcomers to the Bonzai stable and have already made quite an impression. Deep progressive tones provide the intro with a cool offset bass driving the groove alongside a tight drum arrangement. Melodic flurries cascade throughout in short arp bursts adding smooth textured layers. The break unleashes a euphoric episode as the melodies are enhanced by rich pads leaving you lost in this wonderful slice of prog, top class stuff.
