Phi Phi & Airwave’s newest collaboration session has produced another stomper with Vanilla. It’s stunning the work these guys put in, a dedication that always pays off. Their last outing, The Horn was a huge success and we have no doubt this will follow suit. Vanilla comes with no less than four top quality remixes that will appeal to many.
The Original Mix kicks us off as an already established groove finds its way into our brains. Big phat kicks will have those dancing feet moving in no time and the tight percussion patterns provide for steady rhythms throughout. Layers begin to form up with the addition of some cool sub basses that sit on top of a stomping, pulsing bassline. The break reveals a stunning atmospheric sequence filled with ethereal pads and break beats that give off a darker progressive vibe. Hints of melodies filter through as the track climaxes back into the main sound to continue this wonderful journey to its conclusion, epic stuff.
The Stripped Down Original Mix is a much more clubby affair with the focus bearing down on the drum patterns and percussion arrangements. We get some very cool FX that add contrasting textures to the bubbly bassline that sits perfectly underneath the sound. An acid type arp teases and you find yourself wanting it to burst out and take control. The break unleashes dark pads that hold intense vibes, break beats ensue and we soon get locked back into this hypnotic groove. Definitely a contender for many playlists, not to be missed.
Gai Barone is up next with his superb remix. Gai is a firm favourite here at Bonzai and we are always delighted to hear his works. Currently working with other artists as well as his own material we are sure to be seeing a lot more from this guy in the future. Pounding kicks and surreal atmospheres bring the remix to life. A deep droning bass note rises up and is joined by haunting voices as we settle into a deep progressive groove. Beautifully arranged note changes and the addition of some very cool classic styled arps bring in a euphoric feeling to the sound. The break conjures up a mystical scene as those calming voices are joined by swirling melodic pads and strings to the backdrop of that ever pulsing bass. A subtle climax gets us back into full swing on this epic ride, a must have track in your collection.
Argentinean producer Hector Sawiak returns to remix duties after his stint on Chantola’s Don’t You Know back in the summer of 2013. Here he takes the track on a sublime journey into prog with a smooth pulsating offset bass against a steadily flowing rhythmic drum arrangement. Cool FX litter the sound beautifully as the bass begins to become a real driving force. Hypnotic melodies form up out of the synths as the break offers up a medley of bass structures that lead us back into the main groove for the duration of this exquisite journey.
LoQuai turns up on remix duty with another of his stomping cuts. We haven’t seen LoQuai at Bonzai since his last escapade Flying Fortress alongside studio partner Shimmer. He has been busy though with top class releases across various labels, still one to watch for the future. The remix sets off into a world full of flowing progressive grooves that captivate beautifully. Cascading pads score cool melodies into your mind and keep you hooked into the sound. Wonderfully arranged drums will keep the feet dancing along with that deep and lush bass. A track that is not to be missed for sure.

Two guys who hadn’t worked together until 2013 are currently unleashing a fierce partnership with high quality tracks at every turn. Phi Phi and Airwave are back with another stomper entitled ‘The Horn’ and comes with three superb remixes. These guys really need no introduction as they are stalwarts in their field. Both guys are currently gigging hard in both clubs and bigger events while also getting into the studio either together or with others. Very exciting times ahead with this combination!
The Original Mix is a full on progressive stomper that will have any floor rocking. From the get go the track drives hard with a massive kick and solid percussion arrangement. The bassline bubbles up from below and is the powerhouse to the track while a droning synth lurks in the rear waiting to pounce. Brilliantly worked FX add character to this sound and a massive scary movie type riser takes us to the break where a stuttering bass note carries the groove alongside some cool vocals. This takes us slamming back into the main track with gusto and puts this is the must have category, not to be missed!
Tallinn’s own dynamic duo are back on remix duty with their Mindgamers Remix. These guys also need no introduction as they have a raft of top quality tracks and remixes under the Bonzai umbrella. At present they are working on new material as well as more remixes, so definitely worth keeping an eye on. The remix intros with fading pad that rises with intensity to a nice chunky kick and a crispy hat combination with some very cool synth voices also coming through. The fantastic offset bass reverberates through the sound and is joined by a tough synth on the offbeat. In contrast, a wonderful melodic arp weaves through the sound and takes us into the break where a beautiful melodic sequence place with superb pads and strings before slamming us right back into the main groove for the duration. Top stuff yet again from these guys!
Finnish DJ and producer Cid Inc. aka Henri Hurtig is back at Bonzai Progressive after his superb remix on Manu Riga’s ‘Cimmerian’. Henrik runs his own label, Replug and has a raft of releases across many labels. Subtle intro on the remix with a flat kick and smooth rhythmic percussions. A deep bass soon begins to froth as it bubbles up from below and brings with it a driving force with hypnotic tendencies. Nice and solid workout here as the sounds merge beautifully with the addition of quality FX. A tense atmosphere is created mainly form that driving bass as it evolves and transforms itself brilliantly. On the break the bass takes a back seat paving the way for some melodic sequences with a gritty edge. An epic ride for sure and a must in any box!
Yuriy From Russia offers us his remix and this guy is making a lot of waves at the moment. His tracks have featured on top download stores and DJ playlists alike for some time and with more remixes and original material to come it will be well worth keeping an eye on this superb talent from Russia. Big phat kicks provide the intro and are soon joined by sharp hats and some very cool percussive elements. A huge pulsating bass comes out of nowhere will be an absolute floor shaker. Strong and solid rhythms are formed with a tight percussion arrangement and a scary movie type riser takes us through each section. Subtle pads and soft melodies sit back and are brought forward by a beautiful guitar riff and ever increasing strings. A very cool ebb and flow effect on the groove that will definitely be a feature among many jocks!

Phi Phi and Airwave are back at it again with another absolute stomper ‘A Breeze On The Nile’. The guys had recently joined forces for the first time on the amazing ‘Back On Track’, and again this time around we see a slew of quality remixes included in this package. Great to see these two legends hitting the studio together and hopefully much more to come.
The Original Mix intros with crash that unleashes a cool round of mixed percussions before a slamming kick drum edges through. High quality FX work fills in the background as we build our way up to a superb bassline that dominates effortlessly and bringing with it a deep progressive vibe. Intense grooves are formed and on the break things quieten down with surreal pads creating a beautiful soundscape. Top notch stuff that will be a definite must on those deep progressive sets!
Philthy Chit teams up with Superlifter on their remix and they have really delivered on the quality front. The remix intros with a cool deep breaks vibe as rhythms slowly build with a round of percussions. Deep basses resonate throughout the sound and the intensity builds around some superb synth sequences. The break shows off some very cool pads and synths before crashing right back into this solid progressive groove.
Next up we have the Relaunch Mix, this guy has been around the remix circuit for quite a while and always produces top quality results. With a full release coming up on JOOF soon we hope to see a lot more from this stunning talent. The track embarks on an epic journey through progressive vibes as sounds evolve. The intro has a chunky kick and bass combo that sets the scene beautifully with smooth synths fading through. Steady rhythms are formed amongst a well crafted drum and percussion section and the tension rises. A gated synth arp dominates the sound for the most part as it rises and rises. A hell of a ride down into the darker recesses of progressive house.
Greece’s own Steve Sai is on a roll at the moment, he has recently seen two first class tracks and a host of remixes this year. On this remix Steve incorporates his own brand of prog with style and ease. Nice and steady flowing rhythms are the order of the day as the tight arrangements gel beautifully within the progressive sound. The bassline has a superb bouncing effect as it keeps the grooves in check with very subtle pads and synths to add texture. Great stuff yet again from Steve!
