LUIS BRAVO – YIN EP (MONOG RECORDS)

 

[soundcloud id='125407460']

 

Luis Bravo is the artist behind Yin EP and, once again, what a wunderfull job he made here! Three tracks are making the package: The “Original mix”, the “Original 6am Mix” and the “ELEME3NT Mix”.

“Yin” is the other part of our already released “Yang EP” from Luis, so you will find some similar approach here: An outstanding groove and a chord that goes on and on making the mood. The Original 6am mix is a more “darker” version of the main mix.

At last but not least, we invited our artist ELEM3NT to make his magic with a remix for “Yin” and what an hell of a work he made! A lot of influence of Detroit techno, a very powerfull groove but with the subtile chords, so characteristic from the original mix! Well done ELEME3NT!

VARIOUS ARTISTS – ALPHA EP (ELEMENTS RECORDS)

 

[soundcloud id='123183452']

 

Bonzai are proud to welcome Elements Records as part of their ever expanding label family. Portuguese outfit Elements Records will no doubt be another main player in the world of deep, dark, and tribal-esque tech beats. To mark this new venture we have a superb three tracker entitled “Alpha EP” with tracks from three top notch Portuguese producers hailing out of.

First up is Pedro Goya with “How Soon You Forget”. Pedro has been responsible for a slew of stunning works across many labels including Eyepatch Recordings, Bonzai Basiks, Piston Recordings, Bonzai Elemental and Moma. But most notably he has carved a solid niche from within his own label Troia Recordings, which he launched in 2007 and is still going strong today. This track delves straight into the darker side with muted kicks and distant percussions alongside a deep rising pad that gets you hooked from the off. The track continues to build with an expertly crafted myriad of percussive elements that add a strangely tribal feeling, top notch stuff.

Fragoso is up next with the awesome “Profundo”. Lisbon based Fernando Fragoso has been developing his own techno and house styles since 2000. He has been a regular feature on many labels including AU Records, Bonzai Basiks, Mint & Mustard, Howz Choons, Monog Records and Bonzai Progressive. The track intros with a fantastic spoken vocal with whispering tones, in the background an amazingly lush deep synth fades through accompanied with sweeping FX. A nice and solid chunky kick blends in perfectly before more noted synths start to fill the sound. Cool hats and percussions form a steady rhythm as the vocal resonates before breaking down to just the voice and swirly sounds. The vibe kicks back into a full on deep and dark house groove that will be a feature on many playlists for sure, excellent stuff!

Luis Bravo rounds up this stunning EP with “Lotus”. Luis is another top rated Portuguese producer with releases across various labels such as Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks, Eyepatch Recordings, Nouzone Music, Minar Records and most notably Monog Records. “Lotus” intros with a smooth kick and bass combi while a cool percussion arrangement builds into flowing rhythms. Wonderful synths play out a hypnotic groove alongside a brilliantly tweaked vocal sample. The track boasts an awesome array of blips and blops that adds textures to a tightly arranged composition. Deep and dark and a must for any late night session.

BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 22 – 2012

EPISODE 179: Blufeld – All My Life (Green Martian)

For Blufeld electronic music is the pulse of life. Evocative of all genres, yet guided by a set of dynamics and instrumentation very much of its own unique identity, it breathes a type of emotion to a degree that can only be reached via the imaginative use of synthesizer and drum.

Blufeld has been captivated and completely mesmerized into a 3 dimensional world of sound, and endeavours to maximize all levels of the sonic and emotional spectrum so as to reach and tug at the heartstrings of people who love electronic music.

Blufeld is a craftsman with a deep sense of care and love for the output and quality of his productions; a producer who works solo to use sound and imagination to output everything thats inside his heart and mind to create some of the most complex and deepest emotive tracks in progressive trance music.

Blufeld is becoming ever increasingly recognised for his luscious progressive trance sounds, with key releases and remixes signed to labels such as ‘Bonzai’ & ‘Green Martian’ and also including his own label imprint ‘Actuate Recordings’.

With more tracks set for release during the course of 2011, the future will prove to be very exciting for Blufeld……

Konstantin Alt was born on September 7th, 1981 in Bel’bulak, Kazakhstan. Since childhood Konstantin has had a growing interest in percussions and the accordion. His first contact with electronic music occurred while watching MTV finding himself fascinated by the sounds and the possibilities they proposed. At the age of eight he immigrated to Germany with his family and has lived in a village there ever since.

His early musical career started in 1998 when he purchased his first electronic instruments parallel to starting his apprenticeship as a carpenter. This was the beginning of a new era in his life. From here Konstantin began working intensively in music production, weaving in all styles of electronic music including psychedelic, ambient, trance, break beats, and drum & bass. The combination of these styles has made him a producer of progressive house.

With the revolution of the Internet, Konstantin had the opportunity to start his professional career on the UPTRAX website, where his music began to continuously hit the Top 20 list.

In 2006, Mystique Music Records, a new label in underground music, approached him and there he finally found a label where he could grow fundamentally as a producer. From 2009-2010 Konstantin was featured on pure.fm radio through his successful show Unison.

Jimmy is born on August 17th in Luik aka Liege in Belgium. As his parents were boatmen he had to attend boarding school from the age of 6 onwards. To overcome the loneliness of boarding school his parents bought him a walkman. That event literally plugged him in in music!
He listened a lot to music via tapes and the radio and developed a health preference house music.
After a long period of nagging and begging his parents he finally got the best birthday present ever on his 15th birthday: a music mixer and double deck cd player. Every free second of his time went into his devotion to music.
2 years later Jimmy got the chance to prove himself at a cool club in Antwerp: Het Eilandje.
Success was immediate: he got his first residency!

Not long before he got interested in making his own music. With his savings Jimmy bought his first PC with a sound card and a Korg keyboard. After a few years he discovered his own sound and at the beginning of 2004 he released his first record: Jim-Y – Digital Trumpets. In the meantime he was working on a project with his best friend Ruly. Jimmy had finished a new demo for which he had the perfect voice in mind and boldly he sent it over under the project name R & Y to his favorite vocalist and singer. And guess what! Only 2 weeks later he got contacted by Jan Johnston. Jan had already written the lyrics and called for a date to do the recordings for this song, that is how R&Y Meets Jan Johnston – Its Cold Outside was born.
This single was released in 2007 with remixes from Filterheadz and Sied van Riel.
In 2008 Morning On The Terrace got released on the label Bonzai Fiesta.
At the end of 2008, Ruly decided to stop with the project, and that was when Jim-Y changed into Jimmy Galle. Jimmys sound was different as a solo dj/producer. After this period different productions and remixes appeared on different labels.

Jimmy has plaid and is still playing in many known Clubs and on many events such as: Noxx, La Rocca, Cafe D’ Anvers, Industria, Chakra Party, The Factory, Lazurra, Petrol, De Rodenburg (NL), TranccSession, Playboy Deluxe, De Cinema, Space, Wicked, BBC, De Kaai, Red & Blue, Turbulance….

Sadly distribution wasn’t catching up with the demand.After this dissapointment Manu Riga didn’t really felt home. Creativity had no freedom.

After a break of two years, Sven & Adriaan gave Manu Riga a second chance but this time they promised they only would follow their heart and do what they like to do.

After sending the 2005 track Tai chi girl to Bonzai Musicthey found that home.Bonzai appreciated and loved the different approach of Manu Riga.Manu Riga signed an artist deal with Bonzai Music in 2010 a remix for Quadran and George V followed soon.

Time in Between is the first which is typical for their style. Progressive with a touch of Tribal and emotional synth.
Bonzai progressive means coming home for Manu Riga.

EPISODE 188: Ignacio Demaria & Steve Prior – Homegrown (Mint & Mustard Recordings)

Unfolding his double side of both DJ and producer, Ignacio Demarias path draws along the electronic music map a rising line that goes beyond its limits to burst into the international circle. His career, based on talent and hard work, led him both to share the decks with figures of the importance of Christopher Lawrence, Donald Glaude, Eric Morillo, Axwell and Sandra Collins to name a few. Precisely, one of the reasons why his name stands out in the vernacular scene is the combining with equal success his work in the booth and in the studio.

Since his beginnings as a professional DJ, Ignacio covered the big club circuit of Los Angeles creating an interesting sound exploration. Taking characters of the rank of Sebastian Ingrosso or Steve Angello as referents, he evolved artistically through the years at the pace of the musical trends and new styles coming from the UK, adapting and incorporating them.
