Russian DJ, producer Alter Alex debuts on Bonzai Progressive, closing out the year with the superb Vimana, which comes backed up with a solid remix from Manu Riga & Phi Phi. With a few releases already under his belt in 2021, Alex focuses more on his DJing, providing beautifully crafted sets, covering several genres to a rising fanbase. Great to see him here and we hope to hear more from him soon.
We begin with the Original Mix, a solid progressive floor mover from start to finish. Chugging basses greet us on the intro, while punchy beats and rhythmic percussions get us moving. Sweeping pads and quality FX generate a captivating atmosphere. On the break, mesmerizing arps and delicate melodies combine alongside a cool vocal before the main groove comes back for the duration. We welcome Manu Riga and Phi Phi back to BP as they step forward on remix duties. It’s been a few months since the guys’ last release here and, as always, we’re blown away by their skills. Considered with legendary status here at Bonzai and beyond, their very presence on the remix roster is enough to know it’s gonna be good. We look forward to another bumper year of collaborations between these two. On the remix here, the guys have delved into the deeper side of prog with enchanting Ethnic vibes running through the groove. Pumping beats, dark and exotic percussions drive the track as a rumbling bassline dominates the lower frequencies. Purely hypnotic and a solid interpretation as always.
