CONCRETE WAVES – NORTHERN DAWN (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Russian DJ and producer duo Tkachenko Vitaly and Vladimir Pavlov make up Concrete Waves. The guys make their Bonzai Progressive debut with the fantastic Northern Dawn which is backed up with two superb remixes from Manu Riga and Crocy. Concrete Waves was formed in May 2016 when the guys got together through their passion for music. They both enjoy listening to and creating Deep House, Tech House, Techno, Progressive, Hip-Hop and House. Their first release came out in June 2016 on Emotional Noise and other works, including compilation releases, soon followed. They are still working on finding their niche and perfecting their sound while working on their first album. A hugely talented up and coming project that is definitely one to watch.

The Original Mix treats us to a sublime deep progressive trip full of beautifully crafted layers. A solid pumping kick drum leads the way alongside bright hi hats and rhythmic percussions while a wonderfully lush bassline meanders through the track creating a deep groove. Tantalising synth arps weave intricate patterns drawing us deeper into the groove. On the break sweet melodies are revealed to the backdrop of rich pads that capture the imagination before we are thrust back into the main track for the duration. Excellent stuff that will not disappoint.

Manu Riga is back once again with another one of his top notch remixes and, once again we are blown away by this guy’s superb talent. Belgian music maestro Adriaan Baussens is now a household name in the music production world, he has gained an army of followers over the years and is still reaching out to new recruits with every release. His talent lies in perfecting everything he touches which translates to those who simply appreciate “good music”. Here he shoots straight to the floors with a beautifully constructed progressive slice. Nice and chunky kick drums lead the way while crispy hi hats and shuffling percussions create a solid rhythm. A hypnotic vox loiters in the background as a prominent arpeggio delivers the lead sound. Throbbing basses deliver that pure prog vibe that keeps you hooked throughout. Simply stunning stuff that is a definite must have for any jock.

Bonzai stalwart Crocy is up next with his remix and as you’d expect he delivers the goods once more. We’ve seen a multitude of outstanding work from this guy over the years and he always produces to the highest standard leaving the listener wanting more. His last outing was on remix duties for Manu Riga’s Surrounded Remixed which came not long after his own Valve back in July 2016. Always a pleasure to get this guy’s work in the mail box and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future. The remix opens with a solid punchy kick drum and shuffling hi hats combi. Raspy bass notes accompany the tight drums as spacey pads fade in. Intricate synth patterns make an appearance alongside a sublime hypnotic bassline that sits perfectly on the low end. An array of FX add wonderful textures while on the break we’re treated to a simplistic and effective melody that keeps you locked in. Top notch stuff perfect for any late night set.

Nice to see her on board and we hope to hear more from her in the future.

Disconnected intros with a very nice pounding kick drum as shuffling hats form up into a solid rhythmic flow. A deep and probing bassline soon finds its way into the sound as percussions start on their intricate journey. The track takes on a real deepness early on which is further enhanced by the stunning vocals from Mandy. Sultry, melancholic and dynamic, the vocal tells an interesting story that fits perfectly with the groove. In contrast to the deeper elements we find a sweet melodic arpeggio that washes over the sound. A definite must have that will not disappoint.

If Only is up next and we’ve no doubt that this one will become a firm favourite among many. Right from the off we’re drawn into its grasp. Nicely rounded kick drums lead the way against a very cool percussion arrangement complete with shuffling hit hats that really get the feet tapping. The big hitter here is the vocal, a simply sublime delivery with a very intriguing narrative that digs deep into your soul. The vocal blends effortlessly with the melancholic groove created by subtle tones and expert attention. Captivating and enlightening, this one is most definitely not to be missed.

KARIM S featuring LOUNASAN – PILOTS OF THE MILLENNIUM (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Belgian DJ and producer Karim Sghaier aka Karim S debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Pilots Of The Millennium which features two tracks alongside two fantastic remixes. Karim started his musical career in the early 1990’s singing and acting in theatre while also learning the piano and synthesizer, nourishing his love of music. He also began to buy his first records and shortly thereafter was inspired by Chicago house music, Detroit techno and Mayday. He started to DJ at many parties in his local area before breaking out and playing all over Belgium.

If you’re looking for some serious progressive beats then Pilots Of The Millennium is for you. This one delivers the goods in style with a solid lush bass at its core. Right from the get go we are entranced with the groove as it draws us in with a superb bassline and intricate percussion patterns. A very subtle and simple melody from just a few notes is enough to pique your interest as we embark on this epic journey. Bubbling acid lines fade in as magical strings are introduced bringing a cosmic vibe to the sound. The break throws up a divine sequence with wonderfully hypnotic melodies climaxing in a kick drum roll before slamming back into full on mode. A definite must have.

Manu Riga continues his exhaustive 2016 with another fine remix that is directed squarely to the floors and the deeper recesses of the mind. The remix intros with a hypnotic thumping kick drum and offset bass combo with a shuffling hat sequence up top providing a steady rhythmic flow. The probing bass digs deep into your mind as the layers build creating a tight arrangement. Club style chords slot in perfectly against a backdrop of some very cool spoken vocals. Mesmeric strings and synths weave their intricate patterns through the sound and on the break we are graced with a beautiful ethnic female vocal that sends shivers down the spine. Another epic slice form the master of the beat, not to be missed.

The Original Mix of Parazard is a brilliant slice of club progressive featuring a stunning, catchy diva inspired vocal. A solid kick drum and rhythmic percussion section gives this one maximum dancefloor appeal and when you throw in a deep probing bassline then you’ll have no choice but to get down. If that wasn’t enough we are treated to some excellent vocals that blend perfectly into the prog style with a distinct house flavour. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

The ever popular Experimental Feelings delivers yet another fine cut with his remix of Parazard. A solid progressive performance ensues with punchy kick drums and shuffling hi hats alongside a deep bubbling bassline at the forefront. The diva fuelled vocal that rings out dominates the track brilliantly adding that special club appeal to the sound. Mysterious pads and FX give off a wonderfully rich vibe full of cool textures while a beautifully subtle synth line runs through the track. A real stomper here that will generate a lot of attention for sure.

MATAN CASPI – DISTANT MUSE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

For the last number of years we have seen nothing but the very best sounds from Matan Caspi, and today is no exception. Here he delivers his latest offering, Distant Muse which comes backed up with remixes from Manu Riga and Persya. Apart from giving us super fine cuts Matan is running the label Outta Limits together with his good friend and production partner Stan Kolev. He is also busy with touring and concentrating on his future productions, where you will find original, raw and innovative material. His last outing for Bonzai Progressive – Brain-Storm was well received and this was followed up by a double appearance on the ADE 2016 Compilation from Bonzai. All of the above doesn’t leave a doubt that Matan’s music will be heard on the most popular dance floors around the world.

The Original Mix is a sublime trek deep into the progressive sound, full of wonderful subtleties and nuanced elements that combine beautifully to bring that rich sound evident in Matan’s work. Chunky kick drums lead the way as crispy hi hats and shuffling percussions form up alongside a deep and lush bassline. A myriad of FX and one shot synth hits are perfectly placed for maximum effect enhancing the stabby, more prominent layers. On the break we are treated to some excellent key work that bring in rich melodies before the synths are slowed down and then sped up to a brilliant climax and the back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch stuff indeed.

Manu Riga is up first with his Progrezz Remix and in true Manu Riga fashion, he knocks it outta the park. An extremely busy and in demand artist, this guy remains consistent in his delivery of top quality sounds. His last outing – Unstoppable proved to be popular on the floors and various charts and we’ve no doubt this remix will follow suit. The remix definitely goes straight to the floors with a nice rhythmic drum arrangement along with cool FX and a subtle underlying melody. The track builds nicely with the bassline shoring up the dancey groove and the tougher edged synths keeping things moving. The break is where the magic happens here as a beautifully serene vocal captivates the mind and draws you in deeper before those chunky kicks take us back into full on mode. A must have no doubt.

Bologna based producer Persya returns to BP with a wonderfully constructed progressive house remix. His last outing – Heide EP – was back in June 2016 and made a very good impact on the scene. The intro allows us to dive head first into the deep groove on offer as a fantastic atmospheric sound is generated. Hypnotic melodies draws us in even more as chunky kick drums lead the charge. A deep droning bassline dominates the low end as the intensity increases. The solid groove becomes so immersive you are lost in its ethereal grasp and on the break this is more true. A stunning slice that will not disappoint.

Alexander’s debut came back in the Summer of 2015 with Lonely Nights which quickly gained a great deal of support. Since then he has been churning out quality vibes on various labels as well as featuring on many compilations. Great to see him back with this stomper which we’ve no doubt will grab a lot of attention.

You’ll Never Know Why has many strands that combine beautifully into a solid slice of progressive house. A distinct retro theme runs through the sound that will definitely grab a lot attention in today’s scene. Nice and chunky kick drums are joined by crispy hats and a superbly crafted percussion arrangement giving off a cool rhythmic flow. The probing bassline comes at us from different angles for maximum effect while a cacophony of synths stack up creating a driving groove. Soft vocals add a real character to the sound while an array of FX give the track cool textures. A definite must have right here.

Accompanying the original we have a host of top remix artists to whet the progressive appetite. First up we have the impeccable Manu Riga with his Deep Tech Mix which takes us deep into the progressive abyss with a wonderful tech edge.

Cascading arps and piercing synths in various shapes and sizes ring out that captivate the imagination with subtle melodics and powerful note changes. A superb cut that is definitely not to be missed.

The ever present Manu Riga delights with another one of his sublime remixes with its groovy beat and surreal, mystical sound. As with previous remixes and originals, Manu Riga never lets up on the quality front and even though his style has changed to be directed more towards the dance floors this is even more true. Good things continue for Manu Riga in 2016, a new EP – Unstoppable (October)as well as numerous remixes and future original material are all still in the pipeline. His craftsmanship is still very much revered by his peers and he remains an inspiration to artists and music fans alike.

STAN KOLEV – BREATHLESS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Based out of Miami Beach, Florida, Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Breathless which features two stunning remixes from Manu Riga and Rise and Fall. This guy has been churning out quality vibes for over 10 years and in that time he has turned his hand to many styles and genres. He focuses mainly on progressive house but you will find he can dish out top notch deep house, house and tech house with the same dedication and resulting quality. A very much revered artist by his peers, Stan inspires many to reach his standard. His back catalogue is mind blowing and he has appeared on many top rated labels over the years. Great to have him on board at BP and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.

Stan’s Original Mix delivers a solid progressive vibe that we’ve come to expect from this talented artist. This time around he dishes out an oldskool vibe that will definitely grab the attention of many. Nice punchy kicks and shuffling hats lead the way as a probing bassline weaves in and out. Stabby synth notes fade up only to dissolve leaving us wanting more. The drums section remains tight with a complex percussion arrangement sending out a steady rhythmic flow. Another fine slice from this guy that is not to be missed.

Prolific Belgian artist Manu Riga is up first on remix duty delivering a full on dancefloor filler. After many years of mastering his own unique sounds, Manu Riga has taken a slight change of direction, exploring new sounds and ideas to get only the best music to the floors and beyond. We’ve come accustomed to his sound and while this one is new we can still find the Manu Riga magic within. Busy as ever, Adriaan is working on new material and remains a much sought after remixer. He is also busy with his Escape and Ethno Science radioshows. The remix opens with a very cool rhythmic vibe that intensifies as the track builds. Shuffling hats, chunky kicks and infectious percussion patterns will get the feet to the floors no doubt. Wonderfully warm basses wash over the track, inviting you in, while in the background diva-esque vocals ring out. On the break the track whittles down to a pulsing bass and swirling pads before the melody begins to rise once more taking us back into full on mode for the duration. Superb stuff once again that will not disappoint.

Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov aka Rise and Fall returns to Bonzai Progressive with his outstanding remix. This year (2016) has shaped up to be an important one for this guy, he’s delivered the goods consistently which is why he is very much in demand for remix duties. His reputation as a quality artist continues to grow and we’ve no doubt that this one will be grabbing a lot of attention. The remix opens with a nice solid kick drum which is joined soon after by crispy hi hats and a seriously low end bassline that bubble up from the depths. Up to some very cool female vocals add wonderful texture to the sound before the track hits the first break. Here the track opens up with the bass widening out and some fantastic stabbing synths coming through which takes us back into full swing. The synths combine beautifully with the groove and we find ourselves totally locked on. A definite must have track, no doubt.
