RECENT POSTS: Thomas Genchev
Thomas is back again with another round of quality progressive house vibes with “Noise & Silence”. His last outing “Cough Drops” performed very well on the circuit and no doubt this two tracker will follow suit.
The title track starts off with an almost tribal vibe, tough kicks over a classic percussion arrangement and a very subtle bassline. As the track progresses a hypnotic vocal sample fades in and quickly becomes the forefront of the sound before retreating. Intensity builds with quality synths and on the break a heavily FX’d vocal peeks through before getting right back into this true solid progressive house groove.
“From The Beginning” delves back into the prog house arena but with a slightly more upbeat vibe. Again we see quality beats and arrangements applied expertly. Thomas has a knack of bringing in sounds in a very subtle way yet they have a major impact overall, this ability is manifested here beautifully. On the break those sounds combine well and will have you keeping this tune on repeat as there are new things to hear on each listen, superb stuff.
This weeks Bonzai Basik Beats comes with Thomas Genchev behind the decks!

The title track intros with a dark progressive tech flavour as a myriad of percussion builds up a solid rhythm, a thunderous kick powers the vibe accompanied with some cool FX work. A very tribalistic groove makes up the main track while on the break a few vocal sample eases in, bug tune for those darker rooms.

Fresh off the back of his last release “Groove Romance” Bulgarian producer Thomas Genchev returns with another cool progressive house slice which is backed up with two stunning remixes.
The original mix is a testament to house music at its most raw with progressive elements thrown in. Chunky pounding kicks and minimal percussion hold a solid rhythm while the throbbing deep bass gives us the progressive edge. Very cool house chords sit back and tease their way through the groove while a deep south vocal keeps the ear trained intently, top stuff!
Dutch tribalist and all round house junkie Thorin Van Gelderen steps up with a wonderful remix. Right from the off we get hooked into this tribal fuelled groove with huge amounts of house goodness. Superb bassline throughout adds an almost funky vibe and this is beefed up by the housey chords, a bouncing rhythms that will keep the floors shaking their thang all night.
Jakhira, who recently had his debut with Bonzai returns with a funked rework on the original. Fresh upbeat vibe from the start, subtle muted hats and percs keep the track on a perfect level heading. Midway through we get an amazing transformation into some pretty nifty funky chords and synths with the bassline adding a cool progressive contrast. Top notch remix here and a sure fire hit among many DJ’s.

Mindgamers aka Zas & Sanze return with another masterclass in prog house with a couple of amazing remixes thrown in. Signed exclusively to Bonzai the guys add to their already impressive list of releases with “Can You Feel It”.
The original is a good old progressive house workout, cool steady rhythms provide a solid groove, chunky heavy bass will pound any floor and some real cool synth work rounds off a very effective track.
Bulgarian artist Metodi Hristov is up first on remix duty. Metodi has already seen a few remixes under Bonzai gain rave reviews. Here the cool meter goes way up with a superb big club friendly effort. All the goodness of house with the prog element shining through, super suave steady rhythm filled with tight percussion and a subtle kick. The big focus here is the awesome bassline backed up with a mesmerizing vocal which works an absolute treat. Big floor friendly sound which will gain support all over.
Another talent from Bulgaria is Thomas Genchev with a sublime remix. Thomas has appeared on labels like Soulman Music and Sui Generiz, here we see his debut remix on Bonzai and what a fine example it is. Heading towards the deeper side of prog with a minimal approach, simple yet effective subtle rhythms take hold with a host of added FX beefing up the sound. Get ready for a surreal journey through house that will captivate your mind.
Bulgarian DJ and producer Thomas Genchev makes his full Bonzai Progressive debut with “Groove Romance”. After appearances on Soulman Music and a remix for Mindgamers we see a nice slice of deep progressive house on our main label.
The original is kicked off with sharp hats and a tough kick which soon become blended with a cracking bassline and consistently builds up to the main event at the break. This tune completely opens up then with a wonderful female vocal taking control and then getting right back into the pure deep driving rhythm.
Mindgamers return the favour with their remix for Thomas. The dynamic duo deliver something so pure and simple it’s totally awesome. This remix is a solid four to the floor driving rhythm, a short break brings in the vocal and the groove continues, big floor sound here and will fill the boxes all over.
Henrik Kantola aka Chantola steps up with his awesome talent to deliver an inspiring remix. Quality house vibes from the start lead up to a short break where lush synths and a hypnotic vocal transform this into a cool progressive ride, classy stuff again from Henrik and sure to be a firm favourite.
