BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 26 – 2012

EPISODE 195: Aiemo – Sweet Peaches (Bonzai Progressive)

Second release for Unnamed in Eyepatch Recordings. The release comes with two outstanding originals, In Love and If.

The 28-year-old Danish/Italian artist is born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired by the pulsating, urban and unique atmosphere of Copenhagen, David Nicosia Longhi has produced and published under various pseudonyms such as Mazenga and Aiemo. Ranging from deep, minimal psytrance to chillout and melodic lounge music.
David himself describes the importance of inspiration gathered from the fast paced citylife: I love living in the city, there are endless inspirational options, ranging all the way from high-end fashion, cocktailbars, nightlife in general and even the modern oasis areas in Copenhagen, filled with peace and calm energy.I also like the anonymous feeling found in a big city. You could be surrounded by 100s of people and still feel like no one is seeing you. I generally get inspired from beautiful people around me and the desire to make and do something that touches the heart and thought of a human in combination with the electronically produced music. I want to keep living my daydream and my music reflects this.

Practical Inspiration has been gathered from both the trance/balearic scene throughout the 90s all the way to the downtempo and chilled lounge scene in modern time.

His first releases goes back to 2003 with Italian based label Inner-sound Records on the Perfect Evolution compilation and shortly thereafter another release follow with a Danish label. After several years of devoting his artistic abilities in literature he again turned his attention towards electronic music and the perpetual style of modern lounge.
The style from David Nicosia Longhi is now mainly focused on top quality lounge music, with his own deep devotion into a timeless and atmospheric production.

EPISODE 196: Alexander Dancaless feat. Tatiana Maltseva – All The Time (Bonzai Elemental)

Alexander was born in the city of Tyumen, Russia, where he started to study music at a very early age. His strong musical formation had him writing his first productions before graduating from school. His natural sense of music and evolution drove him to work and experiment with electronic and digital productions. Alexander Dancaless developed a unique style that we can consider as the new wave of electronic music. Sound design, sticky rhythms and killer beats are the product of this new talent that will rock electronic fans around the globe. The basic styles: Tech-house, Deep-House, IDM, Downtempo.
Alexanders love of freedom defines his music as an independent and sincere one.

Tatiana Maltseva was born on the 21st of December 1989 in Tyumen (Russia), where she graduated Musical School. Tatiana was singing in the choir and was playing the piano. Also she sang in pop group and as student played in a blues band and then organized a rock band. Tatiana studies philosophy and religion.
In 2010 she began recording with Alexander Dancaless.

EPISODE 197: Patrik Prelovsky – Second Mate (Mint & Mustard Recordings)

Born in Czech Republic in 1983.
I started to play vinyls in 2001 age 17.

At that time I was focusing mainly on techno following guys like Carola, Liebing, Kanzyani, Umek.
Every beginning is hard but with patience and a lot of hard work I am now in the position of playing around the brightest clubs and venues in the Czech Republic

I was actively involved in a tour sponsored by Sony Ericsson that promoting a DJ school this way I was able to play on the most famous festivals happening in the Czech Republic (Hard House, Summer Of Love, Rock For People, Hip Hop Camp)

Ever since software solutions have made their entrance into every DJs Studio I also thought of making my own music seen the situation of the market where the demand for classic DJs is decreasing.

After some trial and error I finally landed the right track which got picked up by Eyepatch Recordings in 2011.

Rishi is a versatile and stylish DJ, and plays many different genres including tribal, house, progressive house and trance. His love for each of these genres is equal.

He has recently begun producing music and has been working feverishly over the last few months on many different styles. July 2011 saw the release of his first EP on Colombian Records and release on Aenaria Tribal. Since then he has released on prestigeous labels such as System Recordings, TheSounds, Spring Tube Recordings, Green Martian and others.

His alter ego, which is actually a merger, Kanzler and Wischnewski was founded in 2010.

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.

ACCATONE:

Accatone is the alias of José Reis. Born in 7 July 1980, he went through his teens listening to Detroit techno and Chicago house music, deep and dub techno and later on to all kind of world, funk and folk, dub and reggae, soul and all kinds of music really.
At the age of 15 he had dj’s and performers as friends and his contact with the after-hours scene in Lisbon started at the early age of 16, making his personal heroes DJ’s like Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Daftpunk, Laurent Garnier, Juan Atkins, Plastikman, Green Velvet, The Orb, Larry Levan, Luke Slater, Underworld, Derrick Carter, and many more…

He started his musician career in 1998 as a percussionist playing all over Portugal as a freelancer and as a member of many bands like the folk band Dazkarieh in 2002, and the chillout project Tachyons from 2003 to 2005. Then he his way into production of electronic music between chillout and deep house and playing as a DJ at most of the trance and techno open air party’s and clubs all over Portugal having his debut abroad in 2009 in Belgrade Serbia at the Namaste Club.

DIMITRY LISS:

From an early age Dimitry had an aptitude for music. Being a piano student he attended various local competitions in his native town, making sure he practiced long hours before each one at home. When he realized being a professional piano player wasn’t his calling, he walked away with considerable knowledge and experience in music and its theory. He tried a lot of musical instruments and was about to settle for rhythm guitar when his thirst for electronic dance music started to develop.

Somewhere deep in the heart of Russia, a lot of influence arose from the cold and moody surroundings he was subjected to in the urban city. He dived deeper into the unknown world of synthesis and sampling. This is where it all started, sleepless nights and lone days with books and computer screens. Producing, practicing and perfecting his craft.

Year 2002 brought dramatic changes to his rather rehearsed and already aggravating routine, when he moved to Dubai. Experience in a new city added to his aural perception. He grew as a music producer gaining knowledge and skill in this fresh and exciting multi-cultural environment where music, culture and technology coincide hand in hand. While on the path to musical growth, Dimitry stumbled upon a few others that shared his vision for a good groove. Two of these key influences are Costas Papa and Abood Nasrawi. Together they try to explore and push creative boundaries.

Dimitry Liss supports electronic music to this day, he is heavily involved with Dimitry Liss and Costas Papa duo project and his own work as a producer and a DJ, crafting brand new tech, deep and minimal house tracks for your enjoyment.

After a few years he discovered his own sound and at the beginning of 2004 he released his first record: Jim-Y – Digital Trumpets. In the meantime he was working on a project with his best friend Ruly. Jimmy had finished a new demo for which he had the perfect voice in mind and boldly he sent it over under the project name R & Y to his favorite vocalist and singer. And guess what! Only 2 weeks later he got contacted by Jan Johnston. Jan had already written the lyrics and called for a date to do the recordings for this song, that is how R&Y Meets Jan Johnston – Its Cold Outside was born. This single was released in 2007 with remixes from Filterheadz and Sied van Riel.

In 2008 Morning On The Terrace got released on the label Bonzai Fiesta. At the end of 2008, Ruly decided to stop with the project, and that was when Jim-Y changed into Jimmy Galle. Jimmys sound was different as a solo dj/producer. After this period different productions and remixes appeared on different labels.

They are known for building more than just a regular party, every night is another story, a souvenir , a sound and loop collage of the finest. Some DJ’s fear them, cause of their provocative “mind blasting” spinning. Others love them cause of their original approxiative way of serving music to a dancing crowd. Sometimes with a slice of self made samples or film-text-anecdotes, sometimes with crazy sounds or test-records, the sky has no limits.

Or better, Mothers… lock up Your daughters…The Beatblenderz are among us

He pursuits for different and more accurate deep and groovy house tunes working as a DJ, Producer/Remixer and sound recordist and closely involved with Piston Recordings ran by his long time friend Rogério Martins.

ITTAI BARKAI:

Fast rewind a few years back and you’ll find Ittai gently leaning towards a turntable, headphones on, listening to music. May it be African chorals, early techno or the Beatles, it all lay side by side on the long & endless shelves of musical ideas.

Years have passed and the magic is cautiously blended into know how – Amplifiers and compressors, Drum arrangements and notes, Cutoffs and wavetables all put together side by side to reproduce and recur similar musical ideas.

After producing music for the World Wildlife Foundation and other soundtrack projects, Ittai is lately focused on producing simple yet aesthetic electronic tracks well aimed at both home listeners and club DJ’s.

Example tracks can be found on different labels (Banshee worx, Planet BEN & Tactical Nuke Records for instance) or played by Ittai and other DJ’s at different venues.

DIMITRY LISS:

From an early age Dimitry had an aptitude for music. Being a piano student he attended various local competitions in his native town, making sure he practiced long hours before each one at home. When he realized being a professional piano player wasn’t his calling, he walked away with considerable knowledge and experience in music and its theory. He tried a lot of musical instruments and was about to settle for rhythm guitar when his thirst for electronic dance music started to develop.

Somewhere deep in the heart of Russia, a lot of influence arose from the cold and moody surroundings he was subjected to in the urban city. He dived deeper into the unknown world of synthesis and sampling. This is where it all started, sleepless nights and lone days with books and computer screens. Producing, practicing and perfecting his craft.

Year 2002 brought dramatic changes to his rather rehearsed and already aggravating routine, when he moved to Dubai. Experience in a new city added to his aural perception. He grew as a music producer gaining knowledge and skill in this fresh and exciting multi-cultural environment where music, culture and technology coincide hand in hand. While on the path to musical growth, Dimitry stumbled upon a few others that shared his vision for a good groove. Two of these key influences are Costas Papa and Abood Nasrawi. Together they try to explore and push creative boundaries.

Dimitry Liss supports electronic music to this day, he is heavily involved with Dimitry Liss and Costas Papa duo project and his own work as a producer and a DJ, crafting brand new tech, deep and minimal house tracks for your enjoyment.

NASRAWI:

Producer, Dj, Lecturer…these are all words that would pretty much sum up Nasrawi, to both friends and fans alike.
With a career in audio engineering under his belt, he is at the very forefront of his game and we truly believe, he’s only just getting started!

His sets are crafted out of music that represent great productions…a true Producer’s DJ, his selection of music and his manipulation of it, is what is fast becoming his most noted quality.

The one thing that stands out is his ability to play to an intimate room or a thumping arena with equal respect.Nasrawi has also played various venues from Brisbane to Dubai, having opened for acts like Jimpster, Alexkid, Lele Sachi and Jozif. On the production side of things, Nasrawi seems to have taken the gloves off as he prepares to release a series of tracks on One28 Recordings, Love International, Eyepatch Recordings and Entrainment Dubai, sealing his commitment to both, playing cutting edge house music and producing a deeper, darker yet bouncy sound, that is nothing short of genius!

In the recent past, he has co-founded the hugely successful House Arrest and Under The Radar club brands through which he has helped push an impressive local underground scene with a roster of internationals that are likely to seal his taste in a niche club sound.
The maturity in his approach makes him a poster boy of the underground scene and we can only be excited about having him push his brand of club culture, here in Dubai!

VICTOR MAXIMILIANO:

Victor Maximiliano is a deep-tech house producer and remixer from the Netherlands. 
His musical interest began in the early days of the legendary Roxy in Amsterdam. 
Soon he bought his first analog gear and did a lot of experimenting with electronic sounds 
on Korg MS10 (which he still owns) and the Roland TR 808. 
In the 90s he worked as a radio DJ for some popular local FM radio stations. 
Victor worked together with DJ Promo as the Vinyl Maniacs and they had a short successful period in the Amsterdam underground scene in the mid 90s. 
It was until 2009 he created his own unique deep sound and made his first digital releases for different record labels and is now signed to Eyepatch Recordings for a second EP after the first EP Peppers and Onions.
