“There isn’t a scratch of land in this whole world that doesn’t seem to have an EDM pulse nowadays. Estonia is well advanced in that department and at its heart lies Tallinn – playground for the twin talents that are Zas and Sanze. Both natives of the capital, from 1999 onwards they used the city as a hub to branch out from and spin at numerous thriving clubland spots across Estonia and Latvia. From there they graduated to playing some of its biggest Baltic musical festivals, including Sun Dance, East-West, 5 Element, Atmosphere, Transgress and Distortion. Through them Sanze has now performed alongside the likes of Airbase, Ronski Speed, Marco Bailey, while production brethren Zas has shared stage space with Roger Shah, Aly & Fila, Mike Koglin, Sonorous, Mike Shiver and Stoneface & Terminal.
Zas & Sanze first joined forces under their Mindgamers guise in 2009 and brought the project to Bonzai Progressive’s door. With the big House swing the scene has seen (and heard!) over the last 18 months still kicking hard, Progressive has been ideally placed to adapt to it and Bonzai were quick to seize on the potential too. With some additional tech-house tints, their first release ‘Attractions’ began to create waves straight out the gate and the follow up ‘Focused’ – with its steady rolling 128bpm groove – did similar business. Last month the guys were out with their latest single. ‘Soul To Soul’ – a cool, almost casually understated track that nonetheless manages to carry an irrepressibly uplifting summertime vibe along with it. If you’ve not come across their material before, it’s as fine a jump-on point as any! Check it out through the links below ”

Quadran got featured at Trance International website.
“Call us odd, but we can remember exactly where we were the first time we heard the name Philippe van Mullem. Creamfields 2000, Oakey on the decks, the festival weather playing ball for once and the first tell-tale strains of Velvet Girl’s ‘Walking In Sunshine’ chiming in. Natalie – head of Bonzai’s UK A&R, stood next to us, approved “Ah, the Philippe van Miullem remix – I’m calling Laurent (‘Velvet Girl’ Veronnez), he’ll want to hear this!” Funny the things you remember.
Since 1995 Philippe has been quietly notching up the career markers. The first release on the hallowed Bonzai Trance Progressive label was his and he was also among the first producers credited with bringing vocals into trance tracks. Despite gathering enough Quadran material over the years to make up a Greatest Hits release (in the form of 2009’s ‘Collected Worx’ album), Philippe’s never been what you’d call a frontline producer, something he seems to be very comfortable with. Under his Quadran name he has a new single out this month, ‘Vertigo’, which is a perfect snapshot of what’s makes his music so good. Tranquil, sophisticated melodies, super-warm bass and a flawless production quality, which he’s endlessly honed over the course of his career. ‘Vertigo’ remixes come from the master Planisphere, who delivers another effortlessly epic remix and a pair of version excursions from Zas & Sanze. Sometimes the unsung heroes are the most interesting. Check Quadran and by extension Philippe’s audio out – it’s well worth a look.”
