METRONOMES – MADAM BUTTERFLY (PROGREZ)

Metronomes are back at Progrez with their fantastic three tracker entitled Madam Butterfly. The guys have been busy since their last offering with a spot on Bonzai Basik Beats and a superb remix on Steve Sai’s Stardust. Here they dig out their best progressive skills once again for a brilliant ride on the progressive highway.

First up we have Madam Butterfly which sets us off with a pulsing bass alongside cool percussive elements before a punchy kick comes slamming in to get the groove into full swing. The bass delivers a deep grooving vibe and is contrasted beautifully with sweet piano licks. The break offers a little respite before the track really gets going on its sublime journey. Various basses combine perfectly and are joined by some mesmerizing synths throughout. Expertly arranged and in your face progressive house that will be a feature on many sets for sure, not to be missed.

Fantasma intros with a droning bass sound alongside crispy hats and is soon joined by a nice and punchy kick. A sub bass begins to bubble up from to the backdrop of some quality FX work which provides lots of beautiful textures. A dark atmosphere is formed as the layers build resulting in a deep progressively charged groove that will work brilliantly in the darker rooms no doubt.

Dead Tourist begins life with a series of sinister sounding FX and cool percussions. Deep resonating basses add the perfect platform for the track to evolve as they transform into a rolling line injecting energy. Very cool scattered synths provide smooth textures and on the break these become more prominent. The main break is a masterclass in bass structure as various levels of low end drones and pulses merge into a superb sequence. Brilliant stuff from the guys and most definitely not to be missed.

STEVE SAI – STARDUST (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Stardust is the newest single from Steve Sai. We last saw Steve with his hugely impressive White Fluffy Clouds back at the end of 2013 and then shortly after with his remix on Crocy’s – Cry. Stardust comes with the Original plus four top quality remixes from some of the hottest artists on the Bonzai books.

The Original Mix oozes deep progressive grooves right from the off as cool punchy kicks are set against a brilliant pulsating bassline. Perfectly placed sub bass shots enhance the sound beautifully with various other synths layered on top resulting in a pumping groove. Steady flowing rhythms are formed out of tight drum and percussion patterns that give the track that driving surge. The break reveals some cool distant arps alongside dark edged pads. The big hitter comes in the shape of melancholic pianos that keep the track well within its progressive sphere. Superb stuff yet again from Steve, not to be missed.

Fresh off the back of his last release Big and Small EP, Belgian DJ and producer Ben Solar is up first to remix duty. The intro boasts nice chunky kicks that are soon joined by crispy sharp hats and cool synth shots. A deep rolling bassline bubbles up from below and takes us by surprise as the full power of its thump is unleashed. Layers build smoothly with the addition of metallic sounding FX that adds stark contrast to the deeper edge of the sound. Strong and driving track that will be a big player in any of the deeper sets.

DJing and production duo Jon ManimaL & Magros aka metrONomes take a break from sister label Progrez and deliver a stripped down smooth ride through deep progressive sounds with their superb Hypnotic Remix. The percussive led intro sets the scene perfectly as flat kicks are joined by various percussions and atmospheric FX. The kicks develop a punch and the groove gets into full swing as the bassline begins to form up into a real groovy mover. A dark and long drawn out bass drone hypnotises alongside those stark piano riffs that give a surreal melancholic feel to the sound. Brilliant stuff from the guys, top notch.

Athens based DJ and producer John Tsamis is welcomed at Bonzai with his brilliant remix. John began DJing in Athens at small parties with his friends which led to playing bigger events with top names. In 2005 he got his own residency at Stereo before moving on to the bigger Luv Club. 2014 saw his first releases on Baboon Recordings with much more to come. The track intros with sharp hats and a long released kick that has a smooth bass edge. Percussions build nicely and provide a solid rhythm for the track to progress. Quirky vocal one shots peek through on the first break as a riser brings with it a thumping kick and a super low end bass that reverberates through the sound wonderfully. The main break unleashes a melancholic piano riff that adds a cool twist and so much character to the track. Great stuff.

Big and brash synths with a powerful bass driven groove is what the Alex Sense remix is all about. Alex is a newcomer to the Bonzai stable and no doubt this remix will make a huge impression. Based in Athens, Alex began to DJ around 1990 after he was introduced to a bit of Psy Trance. Soon after, in 2000 he set up 6thSense LTD and started to manage, produce and promote events among other things. Since 2009 he has seen releases on Movement Recordings, Micro Digital Records and Audiophile Live. The remix intros with a nice chunky kick with minimal percussions coming through. The percussions build smoothly and soon they are joined by a super punchy bass that will have any floor on the move. Big synths sweep by and give the track a purely deep streak which is further enhanced with top quality FX. The break plays on the melancholy of the original beautifully as deep piano chords are contrasted with bright arps. Strong and driving grooves for the darker rooms that will go down a storm.

METRONOMES – ROLL & ROCK (PROGREZ)

MetrONomes are a progressive DJing and production duo by Jon ManimaL & Magros who have been regular contributors to our Progrez imprint. The guys always deliver the goods and this three tracker entitled ‘Roll & Rock’ is no exception.

‘Roll & Rock’ intros with a deep growl and a big chunky kick accompanied by some very cool percussion elements. Growling basses continue to rise up as a deep and dark vocal sample comes through. The track lets loose a funky bassline that gives the sound a huge character and is joined by lots of warping effects later on. A full on progressive groove with a cool twist that will not disappoint!

‘The Dark Age Is’ rattles home a monster bass that will shudder any floor as it pounds away alongside a chunky kick and rhythmic percussion arrangement. The kicks and bass filter down lulling you in before that huge bass slams back right in your face. An array of cool FX create flowing textures throughout and on the break darker elements come out of the shadows before heading right back into the main track. A surreal experience is created with softly rising pads that adds a new dimension, powerful stuff!

‘Soulfood’ intros with a pulsating bass and comes married with really cool FX which blend well and give an edgy texture. The bass is a big feature and will set floors alight all over. Nice chunky kicks and shuffling percussions give a cool rhythmic vibe to the sound. Strangely eerie synths pop out of the woodwork and pave the way for a soulful vocal that sweeps across the groove. Beautiful sweeping pads come through and give an epic feel to this prog stomper.

METRONOMES – MEA CULPA EP (PROGREZ)

 

[soundcloud id='124299929']

 

Progressive DJing and production duo Jon ManimaL & Magros aka metrONomes are back with a superb three track dark progressive house offering. The guys have been regular features on Bonzai’ classic label Progrez for some time now with their last release “AtomON” performing well on the circuit. This time around the quality remains on top form with their “Mea Culpa EP”.

The title track “Mea Culpa” sets off on a dark progressive journey with a deep rolling bassline. Subtle percussions and FX start to build and a cool chunky kick settles into a nice groove. As the track progresses it delves into a full on hypnotic ride that digs deep into your mind. Expertly crafted and very faint pads rise up from the background adding great texture to the sound, top notch stuff yet again from these guys!

“Roots” is up next and takes on a cool prog house groove from the intro. Solid and steady rhythms are built on the tight drum arrangement with snappy percussions doing the job nicely. The bass resonates through the sound keeping the track firmly rooted while melancholic pads provide a hint of melody, superb effort and definitely one to watch!

“Vatos Locos” goes right into the action with a chunky kick and full on offbeat bass. Subtle pads weave through to great effect and a sinister vocal makes a show throughout. The track builds nicely with percussions coming through late on and delivering a flowing rhythm. Very haunting in places with a true deep progressive house vibe as the end result, excellent stuff!

ZOLEX – VETTE JAHREN (BONZAI BASIKS)

 

[soundcloud id='120881150']

 

Zolex returns after the successful “Assault” on Bonzai Progressive. “Vette Jahren” comes packed to the gills with six fantastic remixes from a variety of artists, making this a must have pack.

The Original Mix sets off with a tough edged techno signature as the bass and kicks combine nicely. Subtle note changes on the bass add a cool bounce to the sound as the percussions build a steady rhythm. The track builds in intensity as a vocal sample comes through and on the break things take a darker twist before getting right back into the action, superb stuff!

Danish producer Soren Aalberg is back for more remix goodness after his last stint on Zolex’s “Assault” back in May of this year. Soren’s New Dawn remix certainly beefs up the sound with his effort, big burly kicks with a brilliant offset bass. Great FX work also comes through with some sublime synths going off in the background.

Antwerp based producer and DJ Jerry May is up next with his Boter Bhlum Remix. Jerry grew up with the sounds of Acid House which led him onto being a DJ and in the last few years he has had the chance to perform at many top events across Europe. In 2010 he took up producing with firm results making him one to watch. His remix strips the original to its core and spits out a rolling, pumping groove. The bassline provides most of the jump as it pumps mercilessly. Cool use of the vocals and all this is backed up with a super tight drum arrangement.

Jimmy Galle throws us another of his fantastic remixes in his great style that we all love here at Bonzai. The first thing to hit you here is the massive thump off the kicks which are contrasted with a plucky synth riff. A much more organic sounding rich burrows its way into the sound and is matched well with the well crafted vocal samples, top stuff again from Jimmy!

Rion Oidua delivers a solid remix which takes on a much more tougher vibe. Superb intro with the percussions setting up the groove, the kicks come in with gusto and the track is on course for a techno fuelled ride! Vocal snippets pop up throughout before the track fades out and comes back in with a stunning bassline that really gets things moving. Definitely one to check out here and sure to be featuring on many playlists.

metrONomes aka Jon ManimaL & Magros hooked up their Dark Mix and dark it is. The intro is a sub woofers wet dream as the low frequencies pound out a wall of sound. Snappy kicks are soon added giving stark contrasts as the percussions build up the rhythms smoothly. Darkly sinister and minimal techno from the guys that will surely make a splash!

The Revolving Junkie aka UK based producer Paul Kieran delivers a fine remix indeed. Phat kicks provide the intro to a track that locks you in from the get go. The baseline adds a cool bounce to the track as synth stabs give off a funky element. Again we see the vocal applied very well which gives this track a cool signature. Very club friendly vibe perfect for any set.

METRONOMES – ATOMON (PROGREZ)

 

[soundcloud id='104374132']

 

Metronomes are a progressive DJing and production duo by Jon ManimaL & Magros, the guys last outing Progrez “Inceptions” was well received. Today we have “AtomON”, a two tracker with all the glory of progressive house wrapped up in a neat package.

“AtomON” intros with minimal percussion which builds nicely as the bass and kicks get the rhythm moving into a solid slice of prog. Cool acid type lines give off a techno vibe which works very well with the groove. The break delivers more acid style with subtle FX shoring up the sound. An all round strong track with the power to enhance any set.

“AbeBaBlom” is a pure deep prog stomper, again we see an element of techno thrown in which really does match so well with this groove. Big thundering kicks and tight arrangement provide a solid rhythm with a multitude of percussive sounds providing backup. The track gets sinister in parts due to the growling FX. A monster of a tune which is sure to have any party rocking.

METRONOMES – INCEPTIONS (PROGREZ)

 

[soundcloud id='92133335']

 

Metronomes are a progressive DJing and production duo by Jon ManimaL & Magros, the guys return to Progrez fresh off the back of their last release “Spiders” with this two tracker entitled “Inceptions”.

The title track begins with a monstrous kick complete with a sharp clip on top, this builds and builds with many different percussions entering the fray. A super deep bassline gives lots of depth to the sound and on the break we get a very intense arrangement of FX which leads us back into a strong solid groove, perfect fodder for any prog set.

You would be forgiven if you thought this next track had anything to do with the cult movie classic The Big Lebowski whereby one of the characters named “Jesus” utters the phrase “Nobody Fucks With The Jesus” which is also the name of this track. The track intros with another huge kick with a cacophony of percs following suit, a roaring deep bassline will pound your senses and the floor. Quite minimal track all round with a big focus on percussions, another fine example from this talented duo.

METRONOMES – SPIDERS (PROGREZ)

 

[soundcloud id='83959198']

 

DJing and production duo Jon ManimaL & Magros are back to Progrez with an absolute stunning progressive house release, “Spiders” features three quality slices of dark vibes.

The title track starts us off with the dark theme coming to the fore straight away. Subtle kicks soon find their thump on the intro and what a thump it is, the track then builds its way through the layers with bass suddenly exploding onto the scene. An eerie synth and vocal add intensity while on the break some well crafted melodies take hold. A true all round solid progressive groove.

“I Can Phil U” ramps up the pressure chugging along in another fine progressive groove. Heavy on the bass frequencies here that adds real depth to the sound, awesome high quality FX make up a big part of the sound. Perfect fodder for the more dedicated floors.

“Strange Dancers” changes direction slightly with a more melodic approach yet retaining that deep progressive element. Brighter sounds conflict with the deep basses and some beautiful synth work provides the melody while the pads enhance this feature, very well crafted indeed.

BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 26 – 2012

EPISODE 195: Aiemo – Sweet Peaches (Bonzai Progressive)

Second release for Unnamed in Eyepatch Recordings. The release comes with two outstanding originals, In Love and If.

The 28-year-old Danish/Italian artist is born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired by the pulsating, urban and unique atmosphere of Copenhagen, David Nicosia Longhi has produced and published under various pseudonyms such as Mazenga and Aiemo. Ranging from deep, minimal psytrance to chillout and melodic lounge music.
David himself describes the importance of inspiration gathered from the fast paced citylife: I love living in the city, there are endless inspirational options, ranging all the way from high-end fashion, cocktailbars, nightlife in general and even the modern oasis areas in Copenhagen, filled with peace and calm energy.I also like the anonymous feeling found in a big city. You could be surrounded by 100s of people and still feel like no one is seeing you. I generally get inspired from beautiful people around me and the desire to make and do something that touches the heart and thought of a human in combination with the electronically produced music. I want to keep living my daydream and my music reflects this.

Practical Inspiration has been gathered from both the trance/balearic scene throughout the 90s all the way to the downtempo and chilled lounge scene in modern time.

His first releases goes back to 2003 with Italian based label Inner-sound Records on the Perfect Evolution compilation and shortly thereafter another release follow with a Danish label. After several years of devoting his artistic abilities in literature he again turned his attention towards electronic music and the perpetual style of modern lounge.
The style from David Nicosia Longhi is now mainly focused on top quality lounge music, with his own deep devotion into a timeless and atmospheric production.

EPISODE 196: Alexander Dancaless feat. Tatiana Maltseva – All The Time (Bonzai Elemental)

Alexander was born in the city of Tyumen, Russia, where he started to study music at a very early age. His strong musical formation had him writing his first productions before graduating from school.

Alexander Dancaless developed a unique style that we can consider as the new wave of electronic music. Sound design, sticky rhythms and killer beats are the product of this new talent that will rock electronic fans around the globe. The basic styles: Tech-house, Deep-House, IDM, Downtempo.
Alexanders love of freedom defines his music as an independent and sincere one.

Tatiana Maltseva was born on the 21st of December 1989 in Tyumen (Russia), where she graduated Musical School. Tatiana was singing in the choir and was playing the piano. Also she sang in pop group and as student played in a blues band and then organized a rock band. Tatiana studies philosophy and religion.
In 2010 she began recording with Alexander Dancaless.

EPISODE 197: Patrik Prelovsky – Second Mate (Mint & Mustard Recordings)

Born in Czech Republic in 1983.
I started to play vinyls in 2001 age 17.

At that time I was focusing mainly on techno following guys like Carola, Liebing, Kanzyani, Umek.
Every beginning is hard but with patience and a lot of hard work I am now in the position of playing around the brightest clubs and venues in the Czech Republic

I was actively involved in a tour sponsored by Sony Ericsson that promoting a DJ school this way I was able to play on the most famous festivals happening in the Czech Republic (Hard House, Summer Of Love, Rock For People, Hip Hop Camp)

Ever since software solutions have made their entrance into every DJs Studio I also thought of making my own music seen the situation of the market where the demand for classic DJs is decreasing.

After some trial and error I finally landed the right track which got picked up by Eyepatch Recordings in 2011.

EPISODE 198: Rishi K. – White Krane (Green Martian)

For the last 13 years, Rishi has been extremely passionate about electronic music in one form or another.

Rishi is a versatile and stylish DJ, and plays many different genres including tribal, house, progressive house and trance. His love for each of these genres is equal.

He has recently begun producing music and has been working feverishly over the last few months on many different styles. July 2011 saw the release of his first EP on Colombian Records and release on Aenaria Tribal. Since then he has released on prestigeous labels such as System Recordings, TheSounds, Spring Tube Recordings, Green Martian and others.

In Spring 2011 he released the About Be EP under his alter ego Kanzler and Wischnewski on the label Keymono Music which was at the same time his first Vinyl release. Soon after that release after release followed on labels such as Karateklub Records who published his Flatrunner EP, Ostfunk Records from Berlin and Etiketa Records from Croatia.

His alter ego, which is actually a merger, Kanzler and Wischnewski was founded in 2010. In his music he combines layers of dry and well-structured sounds together with house grooves and dubby bass, jazz trumpets and oriental sounds and adds a touch of minimalistic to take the crowd beyond the main-floor experience.
People from the press described his sound as Fresh and an Exploration Of The Abstract and Minimal New Chicago Sound.

Eric Kanzlers live act are extravagant and not for the average audience. A look hat the upcoming booking dates shows that with his gigs he reaches much further than Berlin and he is said to be the most interesting newcomer act around.

EPISODE 208: Lucio Grandi – Reelooper EP (Bonzai Basiks)

Lucio Grandi was born in Cali, Colombia on August 5, 1984, with Colombian, French and Italian roots.
His first contact with electronic music happens a the sweet age of 6 when Dance and House music hit the local radios. Intense happiness filled him listening to these tunes. Not long before he starts experimenting with recording tunes and making his own mixtapes.

Ten years later after learning how to mix properly on turn-tables he starts his carrier as a professional DJ playing Techno and listening to DJs like Marco Carola, Ben Sims, Cristian Varela, Jeff Mills, Samuel L Session. He filled his DJ-bag with the dark sounds of strong Techno.

But only 2 years later he finds himself tired of that sound and starts the search of his very own musical identity. DJs like Danny Tenaglia, Vibe, Victor Calderone, Carlos Manaca, Richie Santana convince him that Tribal is his call.

Still not satisfied he ends up to adapt House and Alternative Music into his sets and this turns out to be his true self. Influenced by names like Silicone Soul, Peace Division, Little Louie Vega, Armand Van Helden, Harry Romero, Alton Miller , Afrika Bambaataa gave him the needed diversification and shades in tones that this genre contains.

Actually, it is that variation, that diversification that House Music offers that marks his identity as a DJ because he can choose between one side or the other, achieving a more intense atmosphere in his sets.

He has played along with DJs like Franco de Mulero, Jose Viscaya, Malambo, Lexx, Chile, Chloe Harris of London and with David Guetta in 2009 after winning the first DJ contest of his hometown.

He has played in Mission Club, Cooseres, La Cantera, Joan of Arc, Central Valley Pacific events, private parties, etc.

Today he finds himself as a DJ and producer to be part of the infamous Bonzai label group. Convinced of their professionalism and way of working he finds his tracks released on Bonzai Basiks.
This is for Lucio the fulfillment of a dream as he always had wanted to be part of this label.

EPISODE 209: Eyepatched – Volume 2 (Eyepatch Recordings)
