Scottish DJ, producer Allan McLoud returns to Bonzai Progressive with This Is Now, which is backed up with a solid remix from F-Act. This one follows his debut – Reset EO, which proved popular among many. From a very young age Allan was listening to music, playing different instruments and ripping guitar amps apart to find out how they work. In the late 80’s he started to DJ and produce Jazz influenced Hip-Hop using a Commodore C64 and Amiga 500 with self-built interfaces, but soon found his love for electronic music after becoming captivated with the sounds of 80’s synth music. He started out making breakbeat before finding the fledgling acid sound and finally finding his passion producing trance, which was influenced by the Dorian Gray sound of the time. He then started DJing in Clubs in North Germany making a name for himself and then deciding to move to the Stuttgart area where he started doing studio work for Unsubmissive Records. Throughout the years after, he released a plethora of music on several labels which were championed the world’s top jocks. Over the past several years he’s been collecting and repairing old analogue synthesizers and rebuilding his studio where he has a new mission to create more outstanding music for our listening pleasure. Nice to see him back once again.
Almi & Theus (BR) are back at Bonzai Progressive with another outstanding progressive monster titled Silence, which follows hot on the heels of their last outing, Wishes.

In 2020 he is reaching for higher ground by venturing into the darker sounds of melodic techno and house, we certainly look forward to that. Theus has been producing music since 2017 and is an artist with focus, he’s attended many clubs and festivals, getting a feel for the sound so he can find his own way and uniqueness. He is inspired by melodic and progressive nuances of House and Techno. He is always ready for a great performance, knowing how to read the dance floor and getting the audience to immerse in his musical experience. Great to have both these talented artists back once, much more to come in the future.

He also held a long-term residency at The Temple (formerly Boccaccio). Over the last several years, he’s released a raft of tracks on various labels, including his own, Rewritable Records and sub-label Vintage Deep and has worked with a host of top artists. He also joined forces with friend and fellow artist Olivier Pieters on their Boccaccio Life (Chapter 1) EP. Always a pleasure having him here at BP.
