Belgian DJ and producer K-Fel debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this stunner ‘Pantheon’ and comes backed with two top quality remixes. Growing up with the legendary clubs Belgium had to offer turned K-Fel to electronic music. By 2001 he decided to become a DJ where he kept an open mind on genres which led to him getting gigs at top venues. 2011 saw a surge in his productions and his tracks have seen good support from all over.
The original Mix sets off with a true progressive vibe as very cool percussions lead us up to a brilliant chunky kick. This is soon joined by a surreal collection of pads and a fantastic arp which takes us into the main track. A smooth bassline sits perfectly in the sound as it trundles along with an infectious synth hook going off overhead. Classy tweaks on the synth take us up to the first break where a female spoken vocal comes through reporting a zombie apocalypse. Superb stuff and a definite must for those darker progressive rooms!
Napalm & D-phrag are back at BP for remix duties on this brilliant track. We last saw the guys with their ‘Tour De Force’ which saw great support across the spectrum. Here they get right down to business with a brilliant remix. The intro boasts a single percussion with a deep and droning synth that pulsates through the sound. This leads us beautifully into a cool drum arrangement and sets the scene for this fantastic journey. Anticipation builds as risers take us through the sections before a superb, driving bassline takes over creating a sublime atmosphere. The break is where it’s at, dark pads weave through and soon a brilliant melody takes hold which is in perfect contrast to the darker element. Look out for the chord changes here, they really set the track on fire, stunning!
Yuriy From Russia continues to impress with the sheer quality of his work. Here he is on remix duty and what a display he puts on. Big chunky kicks and subtle percussions are met with a deep bassline as a mesmerising synth line scurries through the sound brilliantly. The track breaks to the spoken vocal as soft melodic sequences begin to form to the backdrop of a surreal pad before coming back into full on progressive mode. An epic journey that is full of beautiful intricacies and melodic twists, this is not to be missed!

Two guys who hadn’t worked together until 2013 are currently unleashing a fierce partnership with high quality tracks at every turn. Phi Phi and Airwave are back with another stomper entitled ‘The Horn’ and comes with three superb remixes. These guys really need no introduction as they are stalwarts in their field. Both guys are currently gigging hard in both clubs and bigger events while also getting into the studio either together or with others. Very exciting times ahead with this combination!
The Original Mix is a full on progressive stomper that will have any floor rocking. From the get go the track drives hard with a massive kick and solid percussion arrangement. The bassline bubbles up from below and is the powerhouse to the track while a droning synth lurks in the rear waiting to pounce. Brilliantly worked FX add character to this sound and a massive scary movie type riser takes us to the break where a stuttering bass note carries the groove alongside some cool vocals. This takes us slamming back into the main track with gusto and puts this is the must have category, not to be missed!
Tallinn’s own dynamic duo are back on remix duty with their Mindgamers Remix. These guys also need no introduction as they have a raft of top quality tracks and remixes under the Bonzai umbrella. At present they are working on new material as well as more remixes, so definitely worth keeping an eye on. The remix intros with fading pad that rises with intensity to a nice chunky kick and a crispy hat combination with some very cool synth voices also coming through. The fantastic offset bass reverberates through the sound and is joined by a tough synth on the offbeat. In contrast, a wonderful melodic arp weaves through the sound and takes us into the break where a beautiful melodic sequence place with superb pads and strings before slamming us right back into the main groove for the duration. Top stuff yet again from these guys!
Finnish DJ and producer Cid Inc. aka Henri Hurtig is back at Bonzai Progressive after his superb remix on Manu Riga’s ‘Cimmerian’. Henrik runs his own label, Replug and has a raft of releases across many labels. Subtle intro on the remix with a flat kick and smooth rhythmic percussions. A deep bass soon begins to froth as it bubbles up from below and brings with it a driving force with hypnotic tendencies. Nice and solid workout here as the sounds merge beautifully with the addition of quality FX. A tense atmosphere is created mainly form that driving bass as it evolves and transforms itself brilliantly. On the break the bass takes a back seat paving the way for some melodic sequences with a gritty edge. An epic ride for sure and a must in any box!
Yuriy From Russia offers us his remix and this guy is making a lot of waves at the moment. His tracks have featured on top download stores and DJ playlists alike for some time and with more remixes and original material to come it will be well worth keeping an eye on this superb talent from Russia. Big phat kicks provide the intro and are soon joined by sharp hats and some very cool percussive elements. A huge pulsating bass comes out of nowhere will be an absolute floor shaker. Strong and solid rhythms are formed with a tight percussion arrangement and a scary movie type riser takes us through each section. Subtle pads and soft melodies sit back and are brought forward by a beautiful guitar riff and ever increasing strings. A very cool ebb and flow effect on the groove that will definitely be a feature among many jocks!
Napalm aka Hungarian producer Nanai PalIt and D-Phrag aka Bulgarian DJ Ivan Filipov return to Bonzai Progressive with their latest offering ‘Tour De Force’ and comes backed up with two top notch remixes. The guys’ last outing was ‘Boiling Point’ which was very well received from all quarters.
The Original Mix intros strongly with nice chunky kicks and a soft hat combination. Deep droning basses rise from below giving an air of intensity to the sound which is further enhanced by fading synths and brilliant ethnically charged instruments. Dark grooves are formed from these sounds and culminate in serious progressive workout which is perfect fodder for those darker edged sets, brilliant!
The long serving Bonzai family member Manu Riga is up on remix duty with a wonderfully constructed cut. Manu remains a busy guy in the studio with lots of work on the go including his own material as well as a raft of future remixes which we are excited to see. Here he takes the track on its journey through the darker recesses of progressive house. Powerful basses attract a lot of attention here and are given stark contrasts with lush pads that linger far behind. A very cool ethnic vibe rings through the sound and is further enhanced by a superb vocal sample which is the perfect addition to the sound. Big strong grooves from Manu yet again and a must for any box.
The very popular Yuriy From Russia is next on the remix. Yuriy has been churning out top quality vibes for quite a while now and always adds his unique progressive twist to everything he touches. The remix intros with nice phat kicks which sets the scene for a deep, dark ride through the prog house spectrum. Lush pads are on offer and add a certain depth to the sound which works in harmony with the resonating bass. The break settles into a very smooth sequence before a rising effect takes us back to the full on prog grooves, stunning stuff from Yuriy and not to be missed.

‘Aloha’ sees the second release from the newly revamped moniker Sector 7 which is the brainchild of Belgian legend M.I.K.E.. With a hectic schedule we are delighted that this guy finds the time to produce under this guise as it was a popular attraction in the good old days, and still remains to this day. Aside from the Original we have a top class line up of remix artists on show in what will prove to be a very well received pack.
The Original Mix intros with a punchy kick that leads into subtle percussions before breaking into a cool chord sequence. The bassline comes into the track and really sets things alight as the layers build with intensity. The main riff makes a show midway transforming the track into a full on progressive tech stomper which will grace many a dance floor for sure.
The very popular Relaunch is next up to remix, dark progressive vibes are what this guys is all about at the moment. German based Maik Relaunch is fresh off the back of a superb remix on Thorin’s ‘End Game’ which saw rave reviews and high positions on top download portals. Here the temperatures are rising with a full on progressive monster in the making. Right from the off you get a real sense of deep rooted nature of the progressive vibe within this sound. Snappy kicks and wide hats lead beautifully to a driving bassline while melodic pads rise up through the sound. Melodies are used teasingly on the break before powering back into full on prog mode, quality stuff and one to watch no doubt.
Audio Noir is back after his last track ‘Floorlicker’ which performed very well indeed. Here we see his popular Rekonstruction style remix. It’s worth keeping an eye on this guy as there is much more original and remix work in the pipeline. Nice chunky kicks fill the intro and lead into a very cool synth and bass combi before the percussions begin to show and taking the track to a strong progressive groove. On the first break the track transforms with a huge retro styled riff that will be instantly recognisable and loved by all who remember it. The main break brings with it subtle melodic pads alongside an almost siren like synth that takes us right back to pure unadulterated progressive goodness.
Up next we have Yuriy From Russia and his superb remix. Yuriy has been busy on the remix front and just recently we seen his track ‘Do You Feel’ featuring Ange, perform very well indeed. Here he takes us deep into the darker side of progressive house. The intro boasts a brilliant kick that packs a huge punch, this is coupled with a rhythmic hi hat sequence and leads nicely to a cool flowing bassline. Percussive elements continue to build throughout the track before the bassline is joined by some serious synth work that ramps up the groove perfectly. The track takes a twist when some melodic synths make a show adding diverse textures to the overall sound. Stunning remix that will be sure to grab a lot of attention.
