GOODBYE PHILIPPE VAN MULLEM R.I.P.

Today we say goodbye to a friend and a brilliant musician. Philippe Van Mullem aka Quadran came to us with his masterpiece Eternally in 1994 which was the seed that grew Bonzai Trance Progressive into a world renowned and much loved label. Even more than that, his music was at the forefront of a whole new era in electronic music when true progressive trance was born, a movement that is still very much alive today, getting stronger and stronger again. His passion for music was very much embedded in all of his productions and in all his guises such as Quadran, Honey C, Dobel You, Innertales and U.N.A. The musical mission he had taken is one that is still driving us today here at Bonzai Progressive and remained very much in evidence on his latest and unfortunately his last release Animals Rebellion, which was only just revealed last week and quickly became featured at the worldwide authority for electronic downloads: Beatport.

Always in our hearts, we will never forget you.

Thank you for the music. Rest in peace.

QUADRAN – ANIMALS REBELLION (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Veteran DJ and producer Quadran aka Philippe Van Mullem makes a welcome return with the fantastic Animals Rebellion which comes packed with two superb remixes. His last outing Rumour performed very well indeed with much support across the board. Since then his tracks have appeared on multiple compilations through various labels, including the 2012 stomper Vertigo which appears on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends mega pack. Delighted to see this man return and we look forward to more in the future.

First up is the Original Mix which sets out with an energetic intro filled with a rolling bassline and a nice punchy kick alongside crispy hats. The bassline gets you locked right into the groove as various sounds begin to filter through, creating a cool, colourful image. The track breaks to reveal an atmospheric pad that brings a sense of euphoria to the sound. The pads ebb and flow as a myriad of cascading arps shine through and give the track its hook. Quite a nostalgic sounding track here from a master of the original trance sound and well worth queuing up in those upbeat progressive sets.

The man from down under, Audio Noir, delivers Another Audio Noir Odyssey, and yet again we find ourselves totally locked into his tribalistic, futuristic vibes. 2014 proved to be extremely productive for this talented artist, he had his hand in multiple remixes as well as an exhaustive release schedule. On top of all that he had his debut album, Almost Famous see the light of day, and on the back of that we saw two volumes full of top class remixes from various tracks off the album. No doubt 2015 will be even bigger, we hope so. Here the remix intros with a cool glitchy sound which is soon joined by a tough edged bassline that fills the sound beautifully. A steady rhythm is formed with the addition of sharp hats, snappy claps and a tight tribal fuelled slapped drum arrangement. The intro gains intensity with a sudden burst of rich synth pads as distant kicks tease their way in, the track fades off to reveal a very cool spoken vocal before we slam right into the 4×4 beat we’ve been craving. The relentless bassline and the sub retro synths make for a truly hypnotic experience as the track settles in for the duration. The break hones in on those wonderfully sharp pads and takes us back into the main groove with ease. Another top quality slice, not to be missed.

Relaunch returns with another absolute stomper of a remix. His stunning sounds continue to garner great support from many around the world, as seen with his last release, Sleepwalking EP. A very much in-demand artist whose sounds span various labels and cover various genres with ease. His radioshow, Electronic Delight just recently passed its 50th episode and has an ever increasing fan base. Expect more from this guy in 2015. On the remix he holds no bounds as he unleashes the power of a strong and driving progressive groove on our senses. The intro crashes in with wonderful pads and sharp synth layers alongside solid beats and cool FX. The bassline lurks in the background with its deep drone allowing the myriad of mid range sounds time to play. The short break offers a respite before slamming right back into this full on prog monster of a tune. Perfect ammo for those late night sets.

The Balance Mix intros with a solid bass and kick combi that raises the energy levels right from the off. Shuffling hats give off a smooth rhythmic flow and blend perfectly with the deeper bass and punchy kicks. Big focus on the melodies with wispy pads that bring a richness to the sound, alongside a catchy note sequence. The synths are where it’s at here, big trance-like stabs with an infectious appeal that will definitely raise the roof at any venue. Top notch stuff and a definite must have.

QUADRAN INTERVIEW

This time we sat down with legendary Bonzai artist Quadran aka Philippe Van Mullem for a nice chat about the past, present and future projects!

 

 

Hi Philippe, thanks for talking with us, how are you feeling today?

PVM: Hi Brian, I’m really happy to meet you, I’m feeling great in this beautiful hot weather.

What sort of things do you like to do outside of music?

PVM: I like. sailing, motocross, reading & gaming….

You’ve been around the music scene for quite a while now (but still young  🙂 ), how did you first get into music production and who or what were your main influences?

PVM: Thank you, I think it’s the music that keeps me, it keeps me in a sort of bubble outside of space and time…I started out in the 80’s with Philippe Toutlemonde, we played at various clubs including Carerra and Bocaccio. I was captivated by the new diverse sounds coming through in dance music, the kicks and the snares arrangements were something new and created new ways of dancing. With new technologies becoming available I got into real polyphonic synthesizers and from there I began producing. My first recording was Dobel You – “Mammy” which was recorded using some of the first bar sequencers. I found it amazing that such things could be created with a little imagination and some hardware and I have been producing ever since. I was influenced back then by Jean Michele Jarre, Pink Floyd, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream, I really liked the diversity and colour from these performers.

How did Quadran come into creation?

PVM: I wanted to create a sound that went in between the underground and the commercial EDM spectrum. I wanted to use voice (vocals) as a tool and to be a part of my music, to stimulate emotions much like a solo violinist would do. Quadran was the perfect outlet for this concept.

Quadran’s early tracks “Free Your Mind” and “Eternally” are widely considered as tracks that gave rise to the now popular ‘vocal trance’ scene. How were these tracks conceived and what do you think of how these tracks are regarded?

PVM: “Eternally” and “Free Your Mind” were created at the same time, they were designed to invoke a rivalry between them during the creation process. It was a very exciting time and I loved the challenge it brought. The exceptional vocals of Catherine Mees were very intense and moving and they married so well the electronic sound, a big studio moment! I also received many testimonials from fans who have experienced unforgettable moments from these two titles, nothing has ever made me happier and I thank all of you for that!

Your releases have done pretty well over the years, especially “Eternally”. What was your reaction to the huge following this track generated?

PVM: I reacted with great happiness of course, but to be honest, I suspected as much, because the emotion I felt when creating this title was such that it seemed impossible for me not to share it.

Of course, these releases were in conjunction with the birth of one of trance’s biggest labels, Bonzai Trance Progressive. How did you get signed up with this label?

PVM: When we completed tracks we used to take them to Extreme on a Monday night to test them. There we met Marnik and Fly, we immediately merged because this “new” sound would settle into the scene at the time very easily. But the tracks needed a label and Bonzai Trance Progressive became our home.

Your first album in 1996 was well received also, what was the concept behind this project?

PVM: With the album “Voyages” I wanted to give a much more accurate picture of my personality and my mood as a composer, like the excellent “Oxygen”. I wanted honesty and freedom and not to have to conform to the “mega-mix” money making schemes.

Many releases have followed since then with the sound firmly rooted in trance/progressive trance and clearly you are very comfortable with this sound. Do you ever see yourself producing other genres?

PVM: It is true that I really love trance, I like that I have the freedom to love trance. I also pay attention to all forms of music as inspiration can come from anywhere at any time.

A new single “Rumour” is in the works with a release soon (hopefully) with some top notch remixes included, can you tell us a bit about this track and the remixers?

PVM: Yes, I love listening to this new track, especially in the sun with a cool drink in my hand. I have just found out (I love surprises) that the remixers up to now are Matan Caspi, Anthony Yarranton and Thorin.

Over the years you’ve worked with some fantastic artists on tracks and remixes, which of the artists you’ve worked with would be the most memorable and out of all the remixes of your tracks which one would be your favourite?

PVM: All of the people I have worked with over the years have been fantastic. You’re asking me a very difficult question. I would say that some of the most memorable would be Catherine Mees, Leignel Vincent, Paolo Damanti, Phi Phi, Airwave and Sunscreem. These people have also had a major influence on my musical perception.

You’ve got a special event coming up in November this year as you are performing a special set with Airwave at Bonzai Retro 2013. How excited are you about this and can you give us any hints as to what we can expect?

PVM: I am feeling a mixture of 90% stress and 10% excitation or maybe vice versa I really don’t know, like I said earlier I love surprises and no doubt it will be a great experience no matter what.

Apart from the new single what other plans do you have for the future that you can talk about?

PVM: I don’t have anything specific in mind, but I act on instinct so we will wait and see.

If you could change one thing about the world we live in, what would it be and why?

PVM: Hmmm… if I had the power I would replace our new God “MONEY” with a less evil God!

Well, thanks so much for chatting with us Philippe, take care.

PVM: Thanks a lot, it was a pleasure. PVM

QUADRAN – RUMOUR (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

 

 

French veteran producer Quadran aka Philippe Van Mullem delivers us his latest progressive stomper entitled “Rumour” which is backed up with three top quality remixes. Philippe’s longstanding music career spans from the eighties right through until now, he also has a lasting relationship with Bonzai who were both responsible for defining the sound of the nineties. As you will hear Philippe continues to belt out quality productions and we are delighted to see him keep on doing this. Look out for an exclusive interview with this guy where he gives us an insight into his technique, his past and much more.

The Original Mix gets off the mark in classic chunky kick style with an ever expanding percussion arrangement. We get straight into action soon after with a brilliant offset driving bass and superb synth hook. Progressive vibes ooze out of the sound and that bass begins to hypnotise as it drives through your senses. On the break some stunning melodies take over against the backdrop of a sweeping pad before the track smashes back into full on mode, top stuff here and a track that is destined for a lot playlists.

Matan Caspi works his progressive wielding magic on his remix. Subtle percussive intros get us moving with a rising pad coming through right before the chunky kicks take over. An epic deep progressive journey filled with superb basses and delicate melodies are what’s in store here and this will not disappoint.

UK based Anthony Yarranton is back on the remix roster after his track “Cotton Candy” received a warm reception. Here he takes a serious progressive direction with the sound, steady rhythms are built up with multi layered percussions and a strong kick while the bassline sits very subtly on the low end and rises when called for. Wonderfully atmospheric pads come through on the break as the track goes deeper into the vibe, a very strong track and one that will see a lot of air time for sure.

Dutch producer Thorin enters the remix line-up with a stunning tougher edged prog rework. Thorin is a busy guy at the moment with new material his top priority which we can’t wait to see, so watch this space. The remix has that true progressive vibe with the chunky kicks dominating, tight hats compliment the sound with a surging bassline bringing up the rear. An array of wonderful FX do a great job on the sound while on the break a melodic arp sweeps through. Superb stuff from Thorin and sure to draw a lot of attention.
