Henrik Kantola, aka Chantola journeyed into the world of electronic music at the start of the millennium. Inspired by some of the top jocks and a self driving passion, this young Finnish talent began to produce in 2003. Beginning with Acid Pro and a hardware sequencer, Chantola played with basic loops and short tracks. As the results came, so did his hunger to buy newer equipment and software. 
It was not until 2007 that Chantola really found his break. Teaming up with a Helsinki based producer Jussi Vuorivirta, he formed a duo. Spiritus & Asper was born and full tunes began to materialize. In December 2008, their first completed production with the title Passion was snapped up by Oulu based Wavedata Records. As the momentum flowed, so did the label signings. With tunes released on Spinnin’ Records, Black Hole Recordings, Baroque Records, Mistique Music, Bonzai Music and many more, this young Producer seem to be doing something right. With several releases in 2009 Chantola really got things going. Having his tracks on several CD compilations and Vinyl. He gained airplay from the biggest stars on the globe like. ARMIN VAN BUUREN, MARKUS SCHULZ, MR. SAM, LEON BOLIER, M.I.K.E, MENNO DE JONG, LANGE, EDDIE HALLIWELL to name a few. 
2011 promises to be an important year for Chantola as the expectations rise. Keep your ears pealed… As you will be sure to hear His tunes working their way into a whole host of DJ sets.

Long pioneering label group Bonzai have seriously upped their progressive game of late, unearthing some exciting new producers. Belgium’s Manu Riga is one such talent, a totally fresh face on the scene, ‘Time Inbetween’ is as big an introduction as your likely to hear. Chantola drops in the killer ‘NuRave’ remix which we haven’t been able to stop listening, and dancing too since we first pressed play. Dennis Franchi and Chris M also turn in respectable mixes, while Manu’s original completes the package, packing a sitar and psy flavours.. One to watch for the future!

Philippe Van Mullem no longer needs an extended introduction, the man who kickstarted Bonzai (Trance) Progressive with the very first single by Quadran entitled Eternally back in 1994.

He is a very experienced producer and shows todauy once again he can inspire people. Halcyon, his newest single, is backed with a nice package of remixes, all progressive house.

Manu Riga delivers a stunning piece of music where Blufeld delivers a remix in his typical sound, the line of remixers is closed by Moshe Edri and not forget to the mixes by Philippe himself. 1 club based mix and a more breaks inspired version.

We think you wil agree that this is a really nice release.
