The impressive Moshic is back at Bonzai Progressive with his equally impressive new cut entitled ‘Do It To Me Now’. Moshic’s unique sound is well renowned the world over and he continues to deliver top quality with all that he touches. This new track has been given the remix treatment by three of Bonzai’s popular artists which will definitely help get this track noticed.
The Original Mix intros with a very cool sequence filled with tight hats and percussions with a teasing bass whetting the appetite. Subtle kicks sit back and let the array of sounds do all the work. A rising pad creates an intensity throughout as the groove takes on a gritty feel with the vocal coming through brilliantly. The bass continues to bubble up from below adding a very smooth texture, another fine progressive vibe from Moshic!
Italian producer Gai Barone delivers two stunning remixes on this pack, the first one being his Starsk Remix. The intro boasts a strong and intense drone with chunky kicks and sharp hats building around it as well as some smooth plucked strings. The synths bring in a little melody to the groove while retaining a dark atmosphere. The break unleashes more of those plucks with some heavy FX adding to the already fierce groove, superb stuff from Gai!
Gai’s second offering here is his On A Train Remix which gets us moving with a strong kick with a nice clip on top. Powerfully deep pads rise up giving a real progressive edge to the sound while all around some fantastic percussion takes shape. A strong piercing vibe ensues as expertly crafted FX go to work, all this is shored up with a wonderful deep bass that sits perfectly in the background. Simply stunning and no doubt will gain much attention.
One of Bonzai’s longstanding popular artists Manu Riga takes up remix duties with his Progtrip Remix. Manu is a firm favourite within the progressive realm not only with his own outstanding productions but also for his remix work which always gets plenty of recognition. Here he intros with a brilliant thumping kick with a rolling effect underneath. A resonating bass lingers in the depths waiting to pounce. Tight percussions begin to form rhythmic patterns while a synth pad begins to rise. The bassline evolves beautifully into a proper full on progressive workout as it rolls along in curvy patterns that will have any floor rocking. Plenty of twists and turn on offer here and a track that is not to be missed.
Audio Noir is popping up all over the place at the moment with remixes on many tracks as well as his own material doing the rounds. Here he delivers a stunning remix in his unique progressive way. Very smooth and classic intro with a powerful kick and skipping hats getting us under way. Deep droning basses rise up building the tension before the track breaks with a beautiful vocal over those heavy pads. The track crashes back with those kicks but this time accompanied by an amazing hypnotic bass that pounds the speakers. A superb remix out of Australia which will be a must for any set and most definitely not to be missed!

What do you get when two legends join forces in the studio? The answer is some of the best progressive sounds ever. That is what’s happening here, Phi Phi aka Philippe Toutlemonde and Airwave aka Laurent Veronnez combine their skills to deliver a solid progressive house stomper with “Back On Track” that comes backed up with a slew of quality remixes. Phi Phi has been a huge presence on the trance and progressive scene for a very long time (he celebrated his 50th birthday not too long ago). He was integral in the defining of the uplifting/vocal trance genres in the early nineties, a sound which carries through to this day. Still DJing consistently and now back in production we are sure to see lot more from this guy, no doubt. Another artist with legendary status is Airwave, Laurent has garnered this status over the last 17 years as he relentlessly poured out hit after hit through Bonzai. His work ethic is second to none and when he performs his live sets he dispatches his own unique style with great professionalism. Great to see these two guys get in the studio together with the hope of much more to come.
The Original Mix is a true progressive driven track, the intro sets up the scene beautifully with percussions slowly building up the rhythm and then settling in with a snappy kick. The attention to detail is astonishing with a multitude of FX going off adding great texture to the sound. The bass comes in and the track sets off through the wonderful world of progressive house. On the break a myriad of melodic sequences will keep the ear trained and send you back for more. One truly awesome ride and a sure fire hit with many!
Progressive guru Moshic is our first remix artist, this guy really needs no introduction as he is synonymous within the prog world for his outstanding quality. Moshic has appeared on many Bonzai compilations and has remixed quite a few Bonzai artists also. With a new track coming out very soon we get another taste of this guys talents on the remix. The subtle intro lulls you into a sublime groove made up of sharp hats, top notch percussions and FX with a surreal pad in the background. We are set on a hypnotic ride as the track continues to build layer upon layer before we are confronted with a massive wall of sound filled with superb bass and wonderful melodies. A masterclass and definitely one for any DJ box.
Rise and Fall return to BP after their well received debut “Imagination”. Solid kicks and swirly pads provide the intro before the well crafted percussion elements filter through. The bass drops like a bomb on this as it reverberates through the speakers with dramatic effect. Clever FX and lots of sub plots evolve from this and on the break melodies shine through adding a very cool contrast to the overall sound. A monster hypnotic, progressive cut and a must have on those playlists.
Australian producer Audio Noir is next up to the remix desk with his Drop Mix and we are really in for something special on this. This guy has been churning out some outstanding work recently, in particular his last BP release entitled “Floorlicker”. The epic intro is made up of a mixture of FX and brilliant percussion which gives a tribal feel and is built upon with many other sounds that take us up to the main event when the chunky kicks come into play. Subtle melodies offer a lot of diversity within the sound as the much more raw basses do their work. One hell of a ride with superb rhythms and one to watch.
Audio Noir also provides us with his Zen Mix, a stunning slice of chilled out vibes perfect for a set intro or for just chilling after a long day.
Moshic, one of the best progressive house artists in the world debuts on Bonzai with “False Emotion” which comes backed up with three top notch remixes. Israeli born Moshic is synonymous with dark, progressive, tribalistic and ethnic grooves. He performs DJ sets around the world at big events and has also been a guest on the famous Radio 1 Essential Mix. With well over 100 original productions across many top labels we are delighted to have this guy come through Bonzai with his unique style.
The Original Mix stays true to his production technique with a full on deep progressive offering. The intro subtly builds with dark percussions fading through alongside a tight kick. The track ramps up with a thump as a raw organic vocal sample takes control and an ethereal pad sweeps over the sound. On the break the bassline makes an appearance which takes the track to a whole new level and stays the course for what is truly a progressive masterclass.
First up on remix duties is the amazing John 00 Fleming. John is considered with legendary status in the EDM world with a mountain of productions under various guises. He is a worldwide renowned DJ who is always behind the decks at the best parties. John’s label JOOF (among others) has released some top tracks over the years, including many of his own productions and he has worked Bonzai for a few years now. He also started a brand new collaboration with Airwave and their label LCD Recordings. The remix is an epic progressive house stomper with a huge amount of energy, the intro gets things moving with a feisty kick and a background filled with quality FX. A strong rhythmic groove is built steadily as the tight percussion arrangement begins to flow. Synth leads fade through and the vocal sample adds a beautiful texture. Intensity builds up to the break and the bassline takes centre stage before crashing back to a full on stomper, top stuff!
Next up is another legendary figure namely, Airwave with his New School Breaks Mix. Currently Laurent is working on lots of new material and remixes which makes for exciting times ahead. He is running LCD alongside John 00 Fleming bringing in lots of new upcoming talent. His radioshow Progrez is going strong with the fanbase increasing with every new episode. Here Airwave takes on his breaks persona which always leads to amazing results. A stunning intro brings with it top notch FX with an intense vibe coming through on the pads. The track then throws out big chunky kicks that pack a huge punch. The first drop brings with it some amazing synth work with very subtle and teasing melodies. The powerful groove intensifies and on the break a massive build up takes us right back into this energetic journey through progressive utopia.
UK based Philthy Chit aka Philippe Sartre & Chitra Kumar are next up for their remix. The guys have been enjoying much success with their releases on Bonzai and they have worked closely in collaboration with other artists including original material and remixes. Here the guys bring their brand of progressive to the fore with a top class rework. Classic intro with a full kick, crisp hat and a wonderfully sublime pad. The bassline powers through to take over the groove and a very vivid picture is painted through this strong progressive vibe. The drop gets down to business with a brilliant melodic sequence built up with a myriad of quality sounds and expert arrangement before jumping back into this awesome groove.
