As the 2016 Winter Music Conference nears we decided to roll out our biggest WMC compilation to date. 70 tracks and remixes – from almost as many artists – covering all sorts of genres from Deep House to Techno and Progressive House to Tech House with sprinklings of Psy and Trance thrown in. We tapped into our vast catalogue of tracks from labels such as Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks, JOOF, Sounds R Us Recordings, Piston Recordings, Progrez, Green Martian and Eyepatch Recordings to come up with what we think is a true representation of today’s and tomorrow’s electronic music scene. Artists such as Airwave, Manu Riga, Van Czar, Phi Phi, John 00 Fleming, Blufeld, Matt Holliday, Orlando Voorn, Gai Barone, Nico Parisi, Bonnetti, Diego Alvez, Oz Romita, Crocy and House Lovin’ Criminals to name just a few are all on hand to deliver quality sounds that will definitely keep floors rocking all night long.
Afterhour Trax 18 takes us deep into the progressive abyss with 20 fresh new cuts to lead the way. Heading up this quality pack we have some of the very best progressive house productions, including tracks and remixes from Manu Riga, AudioStorm, Dofamine, Alex Vidal, Steve Sai, Acud, Matt Holliday, Audio Noir, Andrew Michael, Chantola, Altek, Crocy ft Ashley Berndt, Jakhira, Config, Berbush, Cartos, Alexey Lisin ft Ange, Alex Vidal, Zatonsky, Phi Phi, Dharmology, Pavlin Petrov ft Selina Stoane, Experimental Feelings, Yuriy From Russia, Nico Parisi, Smotarev, Following Light and Paul Kardos. A fine selection no doubt and just the perfect addition to your playlist.
Russian producer Zatonsky returns to Bonzai Progressive, but this time he marks his full release debut with Mad Array, after he graced us with his remix on Alexey Lisin & Ange’s – Vesna back in June 2015. With a very impressive list of tracks across various labels we can see why this guy is in great demand. We sure hope to see more from this guy and his brand of deep and moody grooves. Featuring a brilliant vocal from Russian singer-songwriter Alexandra Pride, this one comes packed with remixes from Alexey Lisin and Dapa Deep.
Alexey Lisin marks his full debut on Bonzai Progressive with Vesna and enlists the fantastic vocal talents of Ange along the way. Not quite his first appearance as he got the Zen remix treatment on Audio Noir’s superb album, Now & Zen. Having burst onto the scene back in November 2014 with the awesome Moscow Calling, and following that up with the equally impressive Desolation at the start of January 2015, we’ve certainly got a taste of this guys musical prowess on the Techno front. With a shifting towards progressive house on his Baroque Records release, Siberia, we are seeing a different side to this up and coming producer, plenty more to come no doubt so stay tuned. Popular vocalist Ange returns to Bonzai after her debut appearance with Yuriy From Russia back in 2013 on Do You Feel. Over the last several years she has worked with a whole host of top class artists with her distinct vocal style and her talents have been showcased on many labels worldwide.
