MOSHIC – FALSE EMOTION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

[soundcloud id='114240568']

 

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.

PHILTHY CHIT – YOU AND ME (GREEN MARTIAN)

 

[soundcloud id='102382337']

 

UK based production duo, Philthy Chit aka Philippe Sartre & Chitra Kumar deliver a simply stunning cut with their track “You and Me”. The track comes with two top class remixes and is a perfect match for the Green Martian imprint.

The original mix is filled with emotion and innovation which is exactly what these guys love to instil into their sound. Very subtle intro with a nice mixture of percussions that builds to a cool solid kick. You get a sense of deep house until a rising pad leads us into a warm, cosy piano melody which brings the track firmly into a progressive groove. The bassline wraps this track up perfectly, ever so subtle yet highly effective due to the melodic flavour, the accompanying vocal adds a dreamy element while on the break more sweet sounds fill the waves before settling back into a fine musical moment.

The impressive Blufeld is first up to the remix plate. Blufeld is a regular contributor to the Bonzai sound with his own unique progressive ventures and this remix is right up there with some of his finest work. This remix has a much more rigid edge as the melodies have been beefed up and the bassline has extra weight added. A superb kick and percussion arrangement provides a flowing rhythm which steers the groove towards a trance vibe. The break is something to behold, that bassline coupled with quality synth work and a subtle melody will have the power to captivate any audience, stunning!

The exceptionally talented Manu Riga is up next with his Morning After Remix. Manu is another artist who is contributing heavily to the Bonzai sound. He recently released his latest single “Reborn” along with Nico Parisi and already it’s performing very well at download portals. Manu’s remix fits perfectly with this release as he too allows emotion and innovation into his vibe. The surreal intro leads up to quality kicks with minimal percussions, superbly crafted distant pads sweep by before a cool plucky melodic sequence comes through. The break throws up a twist with a wonderful piano backed up with distorted sounds and some absolutely amazing FX work on a vocal sample, brilliant!

CITIZEN 42 & PHILTHY CHIT – CURIOUS MIND (GREEN MARTIAN)

 

[soundcloud id='80050888']

 

Citizen 42 aka Andy Tau and Philthy Chit aka Phil Taylor & Chitra Kumar join forces to give us “Curious Mind” backed up with a couple of quality mixes. The guys have an already impressive resume within the Bonzai stable and are continuing to show their talent with tracks like this. Andy Tau is no stranger to the scene with a slew of releases under various guises and he continues to show his talent with support all over the world. Phil and Chitra got together in 2007 and have been mixing and producing ever since, they are regular DJ’s and have played alongside the cream of the crop. They have hosted many parties with the likes of M.I.K.E, Tucandeo and Andy Tau gracing the decks.

First up is the original mix, a wonderful progressive vibe is kicked off with a kick and arp combination that builds and builds with a chugging bassline up to a real solid groove. Crisp percussions and a well crafted melodic sequence will get the floors moving, amazing!

Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons is up next on the remix. Nick is a veteran on the Bonzai scene with releases on some of the classic labels and remixing for top artists. Now we see him return with a stunning take on the original track here. Trancey breaks get us moving and soon the melodies build up with epic pads and arps, the bassline creeps up and morphs its way through the track with the filters doing a great job creating classic acid sounds, pure quality.

Fresh from their latest release “Sunrise Over Ganymede”, Tom Conrad & Andre Bonsor take to the mixing desk once again. Progressive trance at its best! Slowly building its way to a true stomper with a tight kick and crisp hats, the bassline teases and teases until suddenly it breaks out to its full head bobbing glory, what a bassline it is! Subtle melodies make their way through the track and you find yourself totally immersed in the groove with this. Perfect.

BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 16 – 2012

EPISODE 148: Eddie M – My Trip To The Sky EP (Bonzai Elemental)

Born in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, and now based in the capital of Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, DJ and producer Eddie M began playing professionally in 2007. With a background in musical instruments and a passion for electronic music, the work of Eddie quickly drew the attention at the scene of Porto Alegre (Rio Grande do Sul), one of the most traditional in Brazil.

After a long DJ career that took him to many places like Jimbaran, Madras, Cozumel and Cafe De La Musique he is now a resident of the 688 Club (Porto Alegre). Being very charismatic and with the great ability to identify the needs of the dance-floor crowd, it did not take long before Eddie broke the boundaries of his home state and moved on to new challenges. Clubs established in Brazil as the Green Valley and Santa Catarina Warung, the Pacha Sao Paulo and Rio Nuth were some of the locations where Eddie showed his ability. He also became a regular at major events such as Planeta Atlantida and Tribe as he was always very comfortable with large audiences. In addition, Eddie M has also performed at the famous Club Avalon Hollywood located in the United States and recently played the best New Year’s Eve in Punta del Este in Uruguay with Sharam and Miss Nine.

The innovative character of Eddie motivated him in 2009 to start producing. After a lot of commitment and devotion to learn how to produce music by himself, 2010 saw the birth of his first tracks. In less than a year Eddie has released five songs. The track “Rain From The Suite 902″ which was produced in partnership with Argentine BONG, stayed for several weeks on the list of 100 most downloaded songs of its kind on the Beatport site. In 2011 the track “Midnight Blue” and its remix by Miss Nine – both released by the label 925 Digital – were also well received and integrated into many DJ-sets and charts.

The only explanations for such a fast uprise of a newcomer are: Talent, determination and a relentless passion for great music. Eddie M combines them perfectly and with him the future of Brazilian electronic music is surely guarantied and in good hands.

EPISODE 149: Philthy Chit – 0.8 (Green Martian)

EPISODE 150: Junk Deluxe – Night In The Congo (Bonzai Basiks)

Emmanuel Benami:

Born in 1983, Israel, and started producing music at the age of 10 (since 1993-today) making my first steps at the underground plant-traxxx website until I was ranked number 1 and discovered by German labels.
My first release was a remix for the G&M Project – Dreaming About Paprica 2003 – along with Dave Joy and 2 Players. Subsequent to my first release my first single vinyl was followed under the – Informers – alias signing the – The Dawn of Mankind- , which scored 5/5 at both DJ-Mag and IDJ-Mag and was supported by top DJs such as: Marcel Woods, Cosmic Gate, SHOKK, Mat Silver, Tony Burt, and many more.
After several more releases the alias Coldware was founded and got massive support to its first single – Fusion – from well known DJs (Marco V, Benjamin Bates, Above & Beyond, Johan Gielen and more). – Fusion – was followed by another great hit that was played in clubs all over the world getting support from Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Marcel Woods, Marco V., M.I.K.E and many more.
In 2007 I have remixed (then and true to 2010) Armin Van Buuren all-time club theme -Communication – that was released in Armind (label distributed by Sony BMGH) and ranked number one in sales on Beatport and charts all over the world.
Throughout this time I have been spinning in the major clubs in Israel and abroad (including Dome, Ha Oman 17 Jerusalem, Zoom, the old Pacha Israel, Octopus, TLV, and others). I spin various styles; from House music to Tech-Trance, Electro and Breakbeats and I am always inspired by the crowed; thus I am always playing the music the crowed de- sires to hear. Currently I am playing in Hong Kong, mainly at Drop.
By the end of 2007 I have moved to Hong Kong and continued producing mainly under the Emmanuel B. alias.
Currently (2010), together with Janva and Natalie Hardoon, I have formed a new group named Junk Deluxe. We are in the process of working of a new EP and new singles to be released in the coming months.
In addition, all my tracks were highly exposed throughout major radio stations around the world including: BBC Radio 1, ID&T – Slam FM, D-I (Digitally Imported), ASOT – A State of Trance, and many more.

Janva:

Being an avid music devotee, Janva has been in the music and club industry since 1990 being the audio & visual manager and resident DJ at the notorious California Bar in Lan Kwai Fong, the center of nightlife in Hong Kong. Along the years, Janva has been performing with renowned artists; from Simply Red to performing together with Tiesto in Bangkok, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Boy George and Grace Jones live on stage for more than 10,000 people at the legendary Unity Party in Hong Kong, as well as appearing together with John Creamer at the Out of Space party at Club Yellow in Tokyo. Janva passion for moving the crowds was not confined to Hong Kong only. From Hong Kong to New York, London, Italy, Indonesia, China, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, Macau, Guam and many more were destinations Janva has been blasting the crowds with house, break beats, electro, and tech-house vibes. – Its not about the music style, its all about the people. I make them move –

Nevertheless, Janva enthusiasm for music did not stop there. Throughout the years Janva has been sponsored by numerous famous brands that kept on bringing him back to dance floor.

Janva has also shown to be a perfectionist when DJing. Throughout the years he had been highly ranked in the Superman DJ Battle in New York (sponsored by The Source Magazine), and was also the DMC mixing champion worldwide representing Hong Kong in the world finals in London. Janva also
produced and released a few EPs worldwide during these years.
In 2010 Janva has collaborated with Emmanuel B. (aka. Coldware/Emmanuel B./Informers) who has been signed, among other famous labels in Europe, on Armada records with Armin Van Buuren, and is known best for remixing Armin all-time classic anthem Communication. Emmanuel remix has been
the best selling version of this almighty track ever since. Together, Janva & Emmanuel had formed the group Junk Deluxe and since then have started producing and performing together. Among their latest tracks, a track named Take Me To Space has been ranked number 1 in Club Space Miami original track contest 2010 and was the most favoured track.

Launched end 1994 under the name Bonzai Trance Progressive. The name was bit more accurate back in those days. Since then BTP has evolved into BP which is more than just a progressive trance label. Since late 2k9 we decided to distance ourselves from the trance scene since todays trance sound doesn’t really fit out vision anymore. Today the label is not afraid to take a leap into multiple directions, with a touch of electro, minimal, house and any other style – without forgetting the main focus is to deliver a quality progressive sound.

EPISODE 74: Philthy Chit – Southbound On The Northern Line (Bonzai Progressive)

DJs PHILTHY CHIT aka Phil Taylor and Chitra Kumar are two people whose sole aim in dance music is to make people realise that music matters. They pride themselves on being clubbers before DJs and it is this perspective on dance music which keeps them rooted to what it is people want to hear when they see them play. Their passion for creating sets with vibrant, energetic and emotive dance music is unique amongst todays up and coming artists.

Moving away from the minimal scene which has for so long confined dance music, they look to bring back the ecstasy into house music through their performances. With their influences spanning a wide range; deep into trance and progressive house of an ERIC PRYDZ nature, to the raw techno influences of people such as SLAM, their unique sound embodies everything that dance music should do. Their ability to bring together euphoric, thought provoking melodies and chunky driving bass-lines through seamless progressive mixing using loops and effects imaginatively, keep the crowd engaged at every level.

Through their own hard work they have created one of Manchester’s finest electronic nights with a zealous following. People travel from both ends of the country each month just to be a part of the special clubbing community which they have created in AGENDA. Using this as a platform to take their message to the dance hungry folk of Manchester they have gained an underground reputation for their ability to mix at a professional level and play sets the likes of which they can confidently say cannot be heard anywhere else. The atmosphere they create for clubbers is one of unity and completeness, something they were proud to share with the likes of DJ HARRI, the founder of Glasgow’s legendary underground night Sub Culture @the (infamous) Sub Club, when he played with them for Agenda’s 1st birthday last November.

This year will see Philthy Chit grow from strength to strength, with top artists from labels such as Bedrock and Anjuna Beats all waiting to play at AGENDA and take on their unique sound. They represent artists who are to be distinguished solely by their exceptional natural talent and the musical principles they hold rather than hype or fashion. To think that they have achieved so much yet they have only been DJing for over 18 months speaks volumes about their passion and ability to perform.

EPISODE 75: Lucio Grandi – Paradise in Flames (Howz Choonz)

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 several Bonzai related labels.

This is for Lucio the fulfillment of a dream as he always had wanted to be part of this label.
