RECENT POSTS: Johny S
Back and refreshed from his last release, the hugely popular “Don’t You Know” (with Junior J), Chantola delivers another fine slice of house driven beats jacked up with a dose of progressive. “I Want You” also comes packed with a very impressive collection of remixes to suit any venue.
The Original Mix constructs a well balanced house groove with its thumpy kicks and crispy percussions giving good rhythm. A very cool bass rips through the track and is further enhanced with some very nifty synth work, the house vibes are ramped up to funky proportions with a great and catchy vocal sample which is coupled with real smooth guitar licks. One hell of a floorfiller on offer and one to watch for sure.
House producer Tero steps up for his first remix on Bonzai with a truly wonderful display of house beats with a sprinkling of deep funk thrown in. Tero has an impressive release count under his belt on labels like Club 86 Recordings and Bullbeat Recordings. From the off the vibe oozes with the pleasures of funky keys which soon build into full on house mode. Perfect drum arrangements give the track a cool bounce, the added vocal samples solidifies the sound while the bass works wonders on the rhythms. Awesome piano work gives this track an all round feel and makes it a must have in any box!
No Chantola release would be complete without the Johny S treatment. This is his sixth remix for Henrik and we can see why he keeps coming back for more. Johny’s own tracks have been on labels like Club 86 Recordings, Bullbeat Recordings and 4 Play Trax to name a few. Here we get into a much more progressive vibe with a super tight arrangement on the drums and percussions. A very cool retro sounding synth does most of the work here as it draws you right into its groove while the deep bass keeps the rhythm flowing. Nice vocal samples come through and on the break the guitar and melodies transform the track before crashing back. Top notch prog house and sure to feature in many sets no doubt.
Another remix debut, this time from Finnish DJ and producer Jesse Suosalmi aka FunkyDee. Jesse too has seen releases on Club 86 and Bullbeat. If you’re after a big floor tune then you’ve come to the right place. The smooth grooves of the original have been taken and ramped up into a party pumping house masterpiece. The funk has certainly been injected here and for those of us who like our music with an oldskool flair then be prepared for a trip that will have you throwing your hands in the air. Absolutely stunning remix and a cert to be featured many times on playlists all over!!
Henrik Kantola aka Chantola is a well versed Finnish producer and we see his new slice entitled Make It Happen backed up with a slew of awesome remixes.
Henrik has been a stalwart in progressive beats for a long time having been on labels like Spinnin Records, Blackhole, Baroque and more recently Bonzai Progressive.
He has appeared on many compilations and remixed lots of tunes under the Green Martian, Camouflage, Fourty 5, Nemesis, Subtraxx and Eyepatch labels. Today Chantola resides on Bonzai Progressive and has delivered a very nice piece of music.
First up we have the Balearic Mix which is full of island pleasures, cool, sophisticated and laid back prog grooves, tight production blends a host of awesome sounds, chunky kick, grooving bass, sultry vocals and swaying synth pads all make for an evening on the terraces.
Matan Caspi drops in to add a hint of tech into the prog house vibe while keeping the coolness and suave of the main sound, very well crafted remix, a little more synth work and some crisp guitar keeps the summer theme alive.
Popular remixing duo Manu Riga gives us their Come Back Remix which delivers a full on prog experience that would fit well on any floor or beach party, constant groove on the bass with those vocals lead up to a break that just exudes summer essence, very powerful remix.
Johny S returns with remix duty on a Chantola track and he delivers as usual, with the focus more on the house side we are treated to an amazing ride, funky bassline and jazzy sax/trumpets make for a big sound for big floors.
